Last Saturday my DSL modem decided that it would stop functioning correctly, so I was without internet for about 5 days. It was tuff not being able to get online, but a pleasant break.
We had a barbecue on Sunday and had a great time, but the kids seemed to receive a gift of the cold virus from one of the other guests (not sure who the offender was ;-) Ethan (5) got it first then Elijah (3) then Devon (10) now today Eve is looking all puffy in the eyes and has a snotty nose. I only hope I can bypass getting it. I am swimming in Vitamin C just to make sure I'm doing all I can do to keep from it. Jordan and I usually don't get sick, even if everyone in the house is!
Yesterday I had a dentist appointment. I was scheduled for a deep clean and got it, OUCH! As I was leaving we made an appointment for me to come back in a few weeks to have an abscessed wisdom tooth pulled. She also said that I had my yearly coming up in a few months and to be able to complete that, I would need to get a note from my OB stating that I am cleared for x-rays. I explained to her that we could just push that appointment back a few months as I didn't have an OB because I labored at home. She looked at me as if I had said I had a bomb strapped to my chest and was about detonate if my demands were not met. She said "oh, well let me go talk with the dentist and I will be right back" She returned to tell me that NOW they would also need an OB note stating what anesthesia they can use for the tooth extraction in a few weeks. Sure is funny they didn't need that a few minutes earlier. I explained to her that I understood my risks and would gladly except Lidacain and would sign any waivers that they felt needed to be signed. She basically told me that I would have to be under an OB's care to walk back in the doors while pregnant. I was furious. I said fine, I guess I will carry around this infection for the next 5 months, that should be much safer for me and the baby, than a shot of Lidacain. What is wrong with people these days. Everyone is out to cover their own behinds because no one wants to take responsibility for their actions. I am guessing that I could step in front of oncoming traffic and if I survived still be able to sue the poor soul who hit me and WIN, all while having a suicide note pinned to my shirt. It really is sad and frustrating for those of us who have sense and realize our risks and except the outcome without retaliation. Ughh!
With the long weekend came much sewing. I have created a monster! I love sewing for Eve so here are the latest creations: well for what ever reason Blogger is being difficult, I will try to upload them again later today.
Well, I'm off. I need to finish the laundry for the day, bake the bread for the rest of the week, and make a shopping list were I will attempt to feed my family of 8 for 60$ this week. Wish me luck!
