Nothing very interesting today...

I cleaned and vacuumed the living room and purdged it of toys that should have been in the playroom upstairs. I let them keep all their toy kitchen stuff and some cars downstairs.

I need to clean the counters in the kitchen but I'm printing off Emergency plans and Protocol for James staff at school. I also ordered groceries today. They'll be delivered on Wednesday saving me 5% off my total. So that makes up almost for the 9.95 delivery fee. It's sooo much cheaper to do it that way than to go to the store just 1/2 mile a way. They are unfreaking believably expensive on everything.

Other than that, boring here today. Tried a couple of new herbal teas (iced of course), the sour apple was pretty good, the wild strawberry was good, but not what I was expecting, too much apple in it overpowering the strawberry. Now that hubby got a big ole glass of it I need to make more. Why does he have to drink from a half gallon cup, lol. What should I make next?

Probably of no interest to anyone but me...

but my nearly 7 month old took a 2 hour and 45 minute nap! This is a kid who naps 20 minutes on a good day. Her older brother also took a nap. In fact he's been sleeping for hours. I'm going to have to go wake him!

Not a good day

Pampered Chef

I almost forgot, I signed up to sell Pampered Chef. It would be nice to have some have some extra money, but I'm not going to count on making a lot. Hubby says as long as I make back what it cost me to sign up, lol. I love kitchen gadgets and cooking, so this would be right up my alley. Can't wait to get started.

My hand hurts a lot.

I fell over 3 weeks ago and when I caught myself I had my last 3 fingers bent back further than they are supposed to go. They were healing so I thought, then the joint in my pinky started hurting even more. It hurts to hold things, close my hand or even extend my finger but I can still use it. I have to! With three little kids to take care of. I couldn't even sqeeze the strawberry jam out of the squeeze bottle for my boys breakfast. I called for a Dr appointment LAST week and ended up calling them back earlier in the week. Even still I don't go to see a Dr until next Monday. I hate our Dr, there's always a 2 week wait no matter how urgent. And there are always old grouchy people there. I don't mind older people it's the one's that are so miserable they want everyone else to be that get to me. That's they kind of clients this Dr's office has.

What will really be cute (NOT!) is if I have to have xrays, as it is I have to drag all 3 kids with me. Oh well, I just want the pain to stop and I don't want pain meds to take for it. Picky aren't I?

James, starts school on Monday. He's excited, but I'm scared to death. At this point I have no clue who his teacher is. I need to know so I can make sure they are aware of his severe food allergies and they know the signs of an anaphylactic attack AND how to use the epi pen, and on and on. It's not the kind of thing I can just send a note in for. They need to understand ONE bite of the wrong cookie at snack time can kill him. I hate food allergies! I really do, potentially food could kill my baby. That scares the crap out of me.
