Hello Again, Hello.

There is a smell in my house.

It is not a pleasant odor, and for the life of me, I cannot find the source.

Naturally, I blame the children.

Daniel had an eye appointment today.

Earlier this year, he was flagged in the kindergarten screening.

So we finally took him in and got a full eye exam with the ophthalmologist, and he is far sighted.... whatever the heck that means.

So we're going to go back in two more weeks, and have another eye appointment, and not dilate the eyes, to see how he fares, and then we'll discuss whether or not he will get glasses.

It's a discussion, you see, because with as young as he is, he can train himself to focus out of it (this is me totally botching up what the doctor said) and it might be more of a hassle making him wear glasses, when he'll probably grow out of it eventually.

Do you people with eye problems know what I'm talking about? Good.

I was doing super, super good on my Eat to Live, until last Thursday. Then I fell off the wagon hard, and just got back on today. Listen: sometimes, a girl just needs a tall icy glass of caffeine. SHE JUST DOES.

A couple of weeks ago, I forgot to take the library books back. And then, I forgot again. And again. And again. So when I finally went back to the library, we had very large fines. Very, very large fines. It was embarrassing, so naturally, I laughed... a lot. I like to think this is an endearing quality that I have.

Blayne has requested that I pack her a healthy snack the rest of the week. I'm pretty sure that her snack today was carrots and celery. When I pointed this out, she rephrased her question to: a healthy snack THAT SHE LIKED. That is a very important detail, don't you think?
