The big number 5 was still going strong, one month later. Though it resembled more of a number 2 or an S, depending on how you looked at it. We set her free. It was so fun.
So the slowness continues. Filling repeat prescriptions, burning eucalyptus, evening Vicks rubbing, finally an end to the conjunctivitis eye drops, a few more trips to the doctor, one for myself, convinced I had an ear infection too, apparently something viral, over the counter head/sinus decongestant only masking the problem, suffering the kind of pain that brings you to tears once it's worn off and you've used up your 6 tiny tablets for the day. On the whole, the fog seems to be clearing, ever so slowly. Painfully slowly.
Time is marching on, the lists are growing, in size and amounts of. How is it November next week? Christmas decorations in every shop I walk past, in every catalogue that gets pushed through the letterbox. Deadlines every other week for dance concert rehearsals, photo days, prep orientation, fee tuition forms, uniform price lists, uniform shop open days and times, flights to book, present lists to make, birthday parties every weekend, get togethers, early Christmas gatherings, photo shoots.. the list goes on. Including a little bloggy birthday. Next week marks one year of ramblings here in my little corner of the interwebs. I was going to be all organised with something - a giveaway? Isn't that what we're meant to do to celebrate?! Sickness totally screwed that up. There is still a little time, I'm sure I can come up with something.
