Yesterday I had a hard time sitting down and putting words together. As I stated earlier my youngest had an appointment with a back specialist to find out when she'd need to have surgery. It wasn't a question of if but when. It's a very sobering thing knowing that your 23 month old would have to have such an invasive surgery and spend the majority of the next 16yrs in and out of the hospital and in pain and not even old enough to understand why.

When they told us they wanted to give it 8 more months to see if it would get worse or stay the same I don't really know if it was relief or fear that I felt. Who wants to wait for something to get worse? While yes I'm happy that she doesn't have to have surgery yet, now I'm watching her like a hawk for changes or complications caused by her back issue. I need to get busy. Once the season starts 8 months will pass just like that.

I'm still setting my alarm clock for civil twilight. Now that sunrise is early enough to get the kid off to school I've debated on switching to it but I think I like the luxury of hitting the snooze button. So tomorrow it will go off at 7:02 but I'll hit the snooze button at least three times.

My kitchen. With yesterdays demand on my time and emotions I didn't even touch it other than to make dinner. The simplest meal a person could ever make and is still so good the kids go back for 2nd, 3rd and 4th if there is any left. It has two ingredients: pasta (any kind of noodle) and a can of sweetened condensed milk. Don't do anything to the condensed milk just pour it in a bowl and add the cooked noodles on top of it and fold both together. This is my 8yr olds' favorite dish. Occasionally if I'm feeling really hungry I'll add a cut up braut or two to the dish but it's marvelous without it. Next time your kids ask for Mac n Cheese, make this instead. You won't regret it. I promise.

So last night I was craving an adult conversation so I went into yahoo chat. I was rewarded greatly. I spent about 5hrs chatting in pm (private message) with someone. I'm still giving up on dating but it's sure nice to have someone to talk to. Especially since my good friend dumped me cause of my age. (I'm still broken hearted over that one)

One more cup of coffee then I need to clean my kitchen, do a load of laundry and put together some numbers for my CPA. Yep, my tax adventure turned into a confusing mess so I went in search of an old friend who is a CPA by profession. He's going to do all the ugly work for me so I can relax a bit and worry about more important things. And he's not going to charge me an arm n leg to do so. Nice guy. Now I need to learn how to keep records better to make his job easier. Ha!

Have a great day!
