7 quick takes
1 - Happy 4th of July Weekend! Here's some Shooter Jennings for your all American listening enjoyment. "Like a queen in your nightgown" - I still love that line.
2 - Man, that song makes me want a beer. Wait - hold on a second ---- ahhhh... beer....
3 - Updates on JF: He saw an orthopedic specialist at the recommendation of his physical therapist. Doc said not to worry about the bowed legs. JF also saw a dermatologist who said he has a pretty severe eczema. Also, he is CRAWLING! He's been growing in his mobility but today he crawled from the living room, down the hall, and into the dining room. I am thrilled!
4 - Story: The orthopedic specialist asked if I was nervous about JF's legs because the PT thought there was an issue. I said no, pointed to Ben and explained that Ben had bowed legs and was pigeon-toed so we were used to it. He then checked out Ben and said that neither of the boys needed surgery, special shoes, or braces. This makes me very happy. But I'm a little worried that we might get billed for both boys. I swear the only reason Ben was actually with us was because I didn't have a sitter!
5 - I am now back home. The kids are with my mother-in-law, Travis is out of town, and I am in a mostly finished home that seriously needs to be put back in order before the kids can return. If anyone is bored they can help me clean and move furniture.
6 - Both bathrooms have fresh coats of paint. I now need towels that match. And a new shower curtain upstairs. Anyone wanna trade a dark green shower curtain for a white or grey one?
7 - I have this very strong desire to begin living in nurse scrubs. Have you seen them lately?! There are some cute scrubs out there - especially tops! I could wear them all day, most days and when I'm out in public people would just think I'm a nurse on my way home from work. I think it's a brilliant idea. And that's not just the beer talking.
