Trying to catch up

Wow, I'm really behind on posting...I will try to give a brief summary of what's been going on... ~I am finally starting to feel better...I had a ruptured ovarian cyst, which caused days of pain and feeling sick. Abigail is sick with a cold/cough virus again. ~Abigail had an eye appt last week, and we now have to start patching one of her eyes...guess how excited I am about that...! Her left eye has normal sight, but her right eye is farsighted, and that right eye has been showing some weakness lately (sometimes crossing when she tries to focus, etc), so we will patch the good eye for two hours a day in order to strengthen that weaker eye. (And no, we can't do it while she's asleep...wouldn't that be nice!) On the advice of a couple of friends, one who has done the patching-thing with her son, and one who told us about girlie-design patches, we bought some good-quality patches that are hypo-allergenic as well as being very girlie (pink camo, butterflies, etc), which will hopefully make it easier for Abigail to accept. We go back in four months to see if there is any improvement. ~We are closing in on the end of school. We should be done the second week of May, and I'm excited! When I told David about summer break, he exclaimed that he wanted to have school during the summer...but on further reflection, he changed his mind and decided he would like to be 'free' all day! Bruce and I are likely going to switch gears curriculum-wise, so I am feeling the weight of that decision looming, since I would like to make our choice(s) in the next month or two. ~I got to go to lunch with a friend yesterday -- our lives are so very busy, so we are trying to get together for lunch one Saturday each quarter to be able to have a heart-to-heart. It has quickly become a precious time for me...and I must admit that it is rather nice to finish whole sentences without interruption. :-) ~I recently made reservations for our tenth anniversary trip (in June)! We are really looking forward to it...it is amazing to be at that milestone already, although in some ways it seems like another lifetime ago that we were young newlyweds! The kids will be staying with my parents, so they will think that's a grand adventure, too... ~Well, guess that's all I'm going to say for now. This week is supposed to be fairly quiet...

Clearwater Beach, Florida -- overlooking the Gulf! I've never seen the Gulf before...
