Not The Day I Expected

What did I say about today being the start of the "new routine"?

I should know better. I really should. My routine is never predictable. Today has K3 home from school. His swollen eye from Thursday turned into nasty, nasty pink eye. The doc had me a basket case because he had more red and pain that he should have. She gave me a list of instructions, including calling immediately and going to the ER if the pain worsened or his vision changed. I was freaking. I still am a little. He started his meds on Sunday, and though the eye looks much better, it's still very red and swollen. Too red and swollen for school or football practice tonight. On top of that, he has strep throat. His fever finally broke yesterday and by last night he was able to eat again, but not much. (anyone that knows this child, knows that him missing a meal is serious.)

So, I've had to alter my plans for today. K3 is curled up on the couch watching Harry Potter - offering commentary every few minutes. He's well aware that once I move to the laptop that I'm working. We discussed it when I decided to keep him home. So, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can get at least a few pages done today.

I rearranged my work space yesterday. Hopefully my feng lines up with my shui now and I can stay at my little table without feeling the forces of doom press down on me. Weird stuff that bad feng shui. I always end up moving my laptop to the dining room table. And I did the kind of housework that I hate doing. Taking the shutters down and scrubbing them, rolling up the rug, moving the furniture and scrubbing every inch of the floors, among other things. Stupid, time consuming stuff. But it's done now and I'm feeling pretty organized again.

Played with my profile last night. On the left, right there beside this post. It's pretty goofy, but B said he liked it and urged me to leave it alone for now. What do you think?

I love the profile! That last line is pure fiction, though. ;)

Not just fiction - a downright lie! lol
