Bailing in Seattle

Sorry I haven't updated in over a week, it's just that I haven't been able to drag myself away from my talk-radio pundits, debate commentary and stock market news. What with the sky falling and all, I simply haven't had time to string two sentences together about my sweet ba-boo. I just want to know one thing. How it is that if I managed my personal finances the way Wall Street & Washington has done, I'd have to go directly to jail and not pass go and they...don't?? Nevermind, I feel my blood pressure rising.

I still don't have a video made. I did charge up the camcorder battery. Tomorrow I'll probably figure out how to put the tape into the recorder. By November we should have the thing uploaded.

Annie had a good week at school, but she got a weird boo-boo on her leg--a hematoma actually--so I took her down to the doctor to have it checked out. The doctor ordered some blood work done, and it turns out Annie's a bit anemic, so I'm going to give her some iron for awhile and while I have the bottle open, I might take some myself. The current theory is that maybe her seizure meds are contributing to her blood issues, which is not unheard of, and so we'll recheck her labs in a month.

Meanwhile, she's perfecting her "No" expression--sometimes it's no-lo-no-lo, and sometimes it's NO through gritted teeth, and sometimes it's no in a song. I haven't heard "yes" yet. Or MOMMY.

For sure we would ALL be in jail if we managed our finances that way... but instead they get multi-million dollar settlements and pork barrel spending. Ah well.

Sounds as if Annie has her word priorities right... NO is MUCH more important than "Yes, Mommy." But "Mommy" is right up there and hope this one comes SOON.

If you have the time, I recommend reading Antique Mommy. She has a 3 step bailout plan. Plus, she's just a dang good writer.

I'll pray for more speech and a quick healing of that hematoma.

We found a school for David, PTL. He'll have all 1:1 classes. Talk soon.

Sue--While you're praying, know that Annie's nurse takes her out on her trike almost every day at school, and as she's pulling her around the school track, she repeats, "Ma-ma-ma-ma." Annie's nurse is the bomb. :)

Gretchen--Hooray for the new school for David--I hope it's a great fit, and that he really loves it.

SUPER! I am glad she has such good nursing care... AND good Mommy care too!

Yeah, I'm late with writing here. The reason I'm writing is to encourage you with the video...or with some more pics...but not of the hematoma, thankyouverymuch. BTW - is that gone now that you are all taking iron? Watch out for iron supplements for you...sometimes they cause upset tummies.
Love,
