It’s 10 days before Christmas – The world is chaos and crazy. What is on my mind?
1. Still Seren, my little broken dancer. Did my wish from last week come true and she is miraculously all-better? Ha! No! She is worse. While sitting on the floor stretching out her legs, her foot went to sleep and refused to wake back up. We spent the afternoon and half the night at Children’s hospital and God knows how much money, for them to tell us…they had no idea what was wrong. We were referred to a specialist…again. On Tuesday we saw said specialist who advised us, that somehow, someway, my little dancer has pinched/abused/bruised a nerve in her leg/ankle/foot. They immobilized her foot in a boot from HELL and told her no dancing for about 2 weeks. I have had one distraught sad little chicka to content with. When I again asked what caused this, why did it happen, what do you think they told me? Ready for it…that she is growing. What the holy hell?! I do not want to believe that growing is causing all this to her little body. I’m so frustrated, partly because my girl is so upset and partly because what their action plan is additional physical therapy, that’s it. Can you hear me sigh from your end of the computer, because it’s heavy over here. Yes, I know…deep breath mama. I’m trying. I’m trying.
2. Christmas – Yes, I finally decorated, both the inside and outside of the house. The tree is cute. We have so many personalized ornaments at this point that we don’t have to use really any non-personal ones at all to fill the tree. I guess 22 years of buying and adding to the collection has paid off. The outside is a zoo of animals and lights. If I only had the knack to add music to the lights it would be awesome, and yet, I am not sure I could do that to my neighbors, few that they are.
3. Still plugging away at Howl 2. With all the hip/foot/leg drama of Seren last week, I didn’t have a lot of time to work on it. However, I did add in another 5,000 words so, I made some headway. I am almost done. I really am. I need a big block of time to sit and finish without any interruptions. Not thinking I will get that anytime soon though.
That’s really it for me this week. Hope you are all enjoying the holiday season. I’m getting there. Yay.
