So I found some fat in my budget after all and I've stopped using someone to clean my house. There is good news, she only came once a month and had begun to do a pretty crummy job so really I feel glad to save the money and do a better job myself. The problem is to clean my whole house in the small windows of time I have available will take about three months, more or less :).
I can't remember if I told y'all but I thought Chloe had ringworm for almost four months! I had taken her to the pediatrician and she glanced at it and said, oh yeah keep treating it, it can take a long time to clear up. Thankfully we have a friend who is a doctor who looked at it at church and said that it wasn't ringworm, but eczema. Sure enough now that we're putting lotion on it instead of anti-fungal cream it looks great. I felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders I had begun to think that she would never be able to overcome this "ringworm" because the more I treated it the worse it looked, go figure!
Does anyone else hate getting their hair cut? For me it has about as much appeal as going to a doctor's appointment. I know it's supposed to be this relaxing thing I can do for myself and truly I wish it was. For some reason haircuts have always made me anxious, the sitting in the chair for hours (if I'm having my hair colored) making small talk, the praying it turns out good, the trying to be bold enough to speak up if you don't like it. I know I have issues, but hey I bet you've got some too :).
Jack consistently puts both his shirt and shorts on backwards, every single day. You would think if it was an accident that at least some days, by chance, he would get at least one of them on right. Every time I see him walking around with his backwards clothes (no I rarely bother to fix them) I think of Kriss Kross. In my middle school there were people who actually wore their clothes completely backwards just like Kriss Kross. Even as a very impressionable pre-teenager, who knew that those were the cool kids, I couldn't help but think they looked stupid and uncomfortable. But it is a catchy song....Kriss Kross will make you jump, jump....
Fellow bloggers does this ever happen to you? When I go to parties and see friends of mine I haven't seen in a while, they often greet me with, "how are you, I'm sorry I haven't/I don't read your blog." In case you are a friend of mind in the real world know this, it never even enters my mind to assume someone knows how I am because I have a blog and I definitely never assume anyone out there actually reads this stuff. But I wouldn't mind new readers maybe next time someone asks me how I'm doing I'll just hand them a card with my blog address on it and say, "just go read about it."
