Isn’t it a drag when there’s something you want to say, but you can’t really say anything, but it’s really interesting and neat-o, but you’re not allowed to say anything? I hate that. But life is suddenly more interesting around here, and Coie walks around with sort of dumb grin all the time. Oh heavens, I’m getting old. But that’s all I’m going to say. Period. I mean it. At least for now. But for the record… um… nevermind.
In other news, Emmiko had *major* strep throat this last week. Seriously. You should have seen her tonsils. It looked like she had two golf balls lodged in the back of her throat. Goodness Golly it was gross. And the problem is they aren’t getting any smaller – even with the antibiotics. And then she started going deaf. It has been really annoying. She can’t hear, so she automatically thinks all the rest of us can’t hear HER and she YELLS everything she says. For instance, the other day I was giving the kids a spelling test and it went exactly like this:
ME: Ok kids, spell “honey”
ME: No Emmi, HONEY
ME: NO DANGIT…. HONEY!!!! STOP SCREAMING “ONIONS”! I SAID HONEY!!!!!!! HONEY HONEY HONEY!!!!!!!
So I took her back to the doctor and he took one look at her throat and said, “Whoa. Those things are huge. She’s probably gonna need those tonsils yanked out” Apparently her golf ball tonsils are so big that they are interfering with her ear-balls.
I tell you the truth, I am getting reaaaaaaaaaal tired of going to the hospital.
And then yesterday, Dippy and James were playing “mad dog”. That’s where James picks up a blanket with his teeth and then Dippy grabs the blanket and drags him around the house. It’s usually fun, but this time one of James’ teeth came undone. And boy oh boy did that boy flip out. Ryann (whom James calls “honey”) kept trying to pull it out (you should have seen the thing, it was just hanging there like a broken piano key) but James kept sobbing, “No no no, Honey, don’t take him out. My tooth is afraid”
So finally after 24 hours, Ryann was finally able to yank the thing out. It’s been a long week.
My sister will be here FRIDAY!!!! Yippppppeeeeeeeeeee! We’re going to spend 10 days shopping for my little niece Eden. Whooo hoooooo!
