I was doing so good there for a while. Posts a few times a week… commenting on everyone’s posts even if it was a day or two late… I was really enjoying being back into Xanga and all that entails.
And then this week happened.
I have been forced to take an unexpected and unplanned Xanga hiatus. I don’t know when it will end… but it will!
There is a superstition among military wives that says that when your husband deploys anything that can go wrong WILL! It’s true… his last deployment proved true… HERE… and this one is shaping up to prove it as well.
Quick run down.
Isaac has a double ear infection. I found out Monday but for days before that (if not a week) he wasn’t sleeping, he was super fussy, and started hitting. I chalked it up to Ryan being gone and just set out to survive it… Then Friday afternoon he stared tugging at his ears. Unfortunately the medical world closes up shop at about 3pm on Friday around here… I called at 7am on Monday. He’s now on meds but struggling to get them down (I’m running over to the pharmacy when he wakes up to see if they can flavor it a little more so it goes down a bit easier.) I’m hoping he’s on the mend and life can get back to normal…
Spock had a lump on his shoulder from his chip implant when we first got him. It’s been getting bigger slowly but this past few weeks it’s just exploded and last week I noticed some hair loss on the area and that he was starting to be bothered by it. I took him in on Monday after Isaac’s appointment and in a lighting fast moment… My dog was having emergency surgery to remove his tumor and would have to overnight at the clinic. $224.68 later he’s back home on antibiotics and mending well.
Last night at midnight Isaac woke up screaming. I ran in there with a bottle of milk and left the door open. Spock snuck down the hall and out his doggy door… About three minutes later I smelled something I am WAY more familiar with than I want to me. I grabbed the baby and ran down the hall just in time to head him off from getting back in the house. He had gotten SKUNKED! I got Isaac to go back to sleep and chose to just leave Spock out for the night because the skunk was still in the yard and I was not going out there and getting skunked myself!
So I was up at the crack of dawn washing my dog… Today I have to clean the house from stem to stern and try to get this stench out of here because I have about 10 hours before my mom and dad roll into town!
They will be here for three or four days and then we are loading up and leaving for Phoenix and then Prescott Arizona. I’ll be glad to say goodbye to Del Rio for the next 5 months but sad to leave the friends I’ve finally made and the church I love behind. Life is going to be crazy for the next few weeks so I don’t know exactly how long this hiatus will last… but I will be back!!!
