I am happy to report that we are still experiencing sunshine and happiness!
First, a funny story: For about a month now I have been seeing white crescent moon-shaped flashes in the bottom left corner of my left eye. I knew that a regular eye exam cost $80 so I didn’t even bother calling them to get it checked out, despite my knowledge that flashes of this type are a sign of possible retinal detachment. What can I say? I’m both cheap and broke.
My sister thought I was nuts and told me that when she was at the eye doctor she was going to tell them my symptoms and that I wasn’t coming in because I had no money. I just laughed and said “okay.”
Wouldn’t you know it… yesterday morning my sister called and woke us up. She said that the eye doctor wanted to see me in just over an hour and that it would be covered by medical! Oh my god, she actually did it!
Anyway, I got my eyes checked out and the doctor isn’t too worried. He’s sending me to a specialist just in case, but everything seems to be okay.
For the rest of the morning I could barely see because of the eye drops I had to get, so I just vegged on the couch and watched A Baby Story on TLC. Have I mentioned lately how grateful I am to be planning a homebirth?
Last night we did some grocery shopping. We also bought MySims for our Wii. (We had agreed that if Bailey saved up half the cost that we would pay for the rest of it.) She is playing happily right now.
Remember how it started to rain as I was typing the last blog post? Bailey got a picture of the rainbow through our bathroom window. You can’t see it very well because of the screen, but I thought the effect was cool anyway:
Here’s one more picture. We did this one for fun using the timer on our camera. I put the camera on top of our dishwasher and then got into position!
I want to get my sister to take some nice belly shots for me, and I’d love to get a family picture too. (Hear that Lu? 😉 )
Today we will do some more grocery shopping, and hopefully go for a walk. I am also doing some research about safe blogging for kids. Bailey wants to start her own blog, and I am trying to decide if it would be better for me to edit for safety/privacy concerns or to have her start a private blog to which I would give out the password. She wants people (kids) to be able to find her blog, though, so maybe the safety editing option would be best. If anyone reads this blog and has suggestions please let me know!
Well, Bailey is in the shower… I think I will sneak in some Warcraft II.
