Sick Family and Facebook

B1 missed 3 days of school last week. This is the most she has ever missed. She has now missed 6 days this year so far! I hate that, especially with Bruce and me both being teachers. She had swimmer's ear. Yep, swimmer's ear in March when she has not been in a pool since her birthday party back in December. And she had it in BOTH ears, which is really weird. She is definitely on the mend now though. We ended up going to an ear, nose, and throat specialist who cleaned out her worst ear and inserted a wick into it. The wick will absorb the medication and heal her. It certainly seems to be working. She has to go have it removed (assuming it doesn't fall out on its own) next Wednesday.

B2 started getting sick yesterday, just after I was (sort of) bragging that she hasn't missed any school year this year. I should have kept my mouth shut. Hers is way different though. Sore throat and headache. She has been complaining of headaches a lot lately. She has done so since 1st grade, off and on. I took her for an eye exam the summer after 1st grade and she was fine. I took her again last summer (after 2nd grade) and still she didn't need glasses, but I don't think her vision was perfect. I am now thinking it's going to be time. I am not going to wait until the end of the school year this time; we're going to go back to the eye doctor soon.....after she gets over this throat thing.....maybe even tomorrow depending on if they can get us in and how she feels.

I joined Facebook yesterday. I have no idea really what I am doing there, but it seems like the thing "to do." I haven't even downloaded a picture yet and I'm not sure I'm going to other than my profile picture. Right now I'm skeptical about it but maybe my tune will change as time goes on.

I am looking forward to next weekend because I am once again going on a scrapbooking getaway. I'm going by myself this time. I am still looking forward to it even though I wish Michelle was going too (Mike, can't she please just join me for one day?). I plan to get a lot done. I need to catch up with my everyday pictures and finally get to the point where I can scrapbook the pictures from our Vegas trip last February and our Disney trip last summer.

That's about it for now. I'll keep you posted on B2's condition.

I joined Facebook last year because a friend of mine always puts her vacation pictures there, and it's easier to see them online than to catch up with her in person :-)

I think I've uploaded a couple of photo albums and that's about it. However, since my children are also on my "friend" list, I can keep up with what they're posting!
