Preparing For A Full House

Preparing For A Full House
Print Friendly

Ali and I are busy preparing the house for the influx of guests that will start arriving next week. Some of them will be staying at Ali’s because we’ll be filled to the brim here. It’s all very exciting! Mason is counting the days, confirming his math with me each morning. (“Mom, it’s 15 days now because yesterday it was 16, right?”)

The weather here isn’t very Christmassy but we like it all the same. It’s been in the low 80s by day and mid-60s by night. We were outside barefoot and in shorts last weekend and it was beautiful! I had a bit of cabin fever so we drove out to Treasure Island and discovered John’s Pass Village and Boardwalk. The sun was shining and the breeze was warm and we enjoyed our stroll. We stopped for lunch and then, as a treat, stopped for snowcones on the way home. The boys were pretty sugared up after that! 😉

I visited the hematologist again this week. I went in last month to get tested after I hemorrhaged in October on vacation. My results were in and my numbers are a bit off but not enough to indicate a full-blown bleeding disorder. The doc thinks I might be a carrier for Vonne Willibrand Disease. If I do need surgery in the future, they will need to test me again at that time to see if I need special meds to help with clotting. I’m just hoping and praying I won’t need any more surgeries – ever. I’m still anemic so he doubled my iron. Oh joy. That stuff wreaks havoc on my gut. My platelets are also a bit high, and have been for several months now. He didn’t seem concerned about that.

This week’s Masonism:

We were studying solids, liquids, and gases in homeschooling science and Mason (matter-of-factly) said, “You know…gas comes out of your butt.”

Big hugs to all,
Angela

P.S. I want to “follow” you!
