Geez, I don't know how you all are so good at regular blogging! I know that I am not the only one with a job, a house, a husband and pets. I doubt I'm the only one with a son, who I've nicknamed Velcro Kid for the mere fact that he's never very far away from me and seems to need my assistance every 30 seconds. Oh wait, I take that back since as I am typing this I see he is helping himself to some juice....straight out of the bottle. And I'm not the only one with a child who has a chronic illness. So the conclusion I have drawn is that it must be my yarn obsession that is taking up the tiny amount of spare time I have in life.
This is the first official week of summer vacation. I feel SO lucky to get paid to sit at home with my kids and do fun things with my yarn for 9 weeks! This week for the most part has been everything I had hoped it would be. I could have lived without the eye doctor appointment yesterday where I found out my corneas were swollen and had to switch to different contacts. But there are worse things in life for sure!
Evan's preschool went through today so Janelle and I got a little bit of a break from him which was nice. We got to hang out together and do girl stuff. Today we had our 3 month visit with the endocrinologist. Her A1C was every bit as bad as I expected it to be. After dealing with D for a while you pretty much already know what your "report card" is going to look like. We have not had good numbers and I have definitely not been good about keeping up on needed adjustments. I'm going to pass that blame on to the two newest members of our family who have taken up a lot of my time!
So her A1C went up from 7.3 to 8.2. Yikes! The good news is that we expected it to be high. I'd rather that than to think we're doing great only to get slapped in the face with a high A1C. We pretty much adjusted everything there is to adjust. Hopefully her numbers will get better.
My plans for the summer are to crochet and to read all FIVE of the books I bought this week! I will also be taking the kids to swimming lessons, going to Seattle and to Chicago. Oh, and maybe blog a little. I love Summer Leigh!
