I told myself to get up. JUST GET UP. Darryl needs a bottle. Busy day ahead. Get moving.
I fought with myself. I felt so tired.
Finally I sat up in bed. YES. I can do this.
And I looked over at the clock.
I thought it was 6am. I thought it was time to get up.
Terry was outside doing his cow checks.
And I spent the next 20 minutes trying to get back to sleep.
When the day did start at 6am and I went out to feed the bottle to Darryl......whose name is really Larry.....it was magical outside. It was a snowday! And there was no wind and the air was fresh and all the spring birds were singing.....
It was the second snowday in a row. The first snowday was an ice day but then it changed over to snow and it snowed all night.
The kids were excited to have another day at home. I mentioned that it reminded me of homeschooling days. And they said 'Ya Mom....
Dad's here. and he was never here when we homeschooled.
And also we live in a different house now.
And also no one is doing school work.'
Ya I guess. But it's just that no one flushes the toilet and I'm not used to having to check toilets during the day....so it's sorta like the old homeschooling days.
So anyways, I had to take Sophie to her dentist appointment in Ottawa today. Lydia decided to come too because she figured that she could get lunch out. And she did. So the three of us went for the appointment. This was her third time there. We pretty much go every week until they get the appliance in her mouth.
So last week the estimate was $1500 and this week the estimate is $7500.
I took a book to read but I couldn't read it because I pretty much just sat there feeling sick, crapping my pants. She needs 4 baby teeth pulled and an appliance and elastics and braces and pretty much everything else. And the thought of her going through all this just makes me ill. And her mouth doesn't even look that bad....it's all the stuff they see on the panoramic x-rays and all the 'what ifs' that could happen.
In other news....
The zipper on my barn coat busted and I need a winter coat to wear to the barn. It doesn't have to be fancy....it just has to be warm. I figured that I would have a look at Value Village. At the coats.
And they are way overpriced. And really old.
But who owns the money in the pockets of the coats at Value Village?
I'm just asking for a friend.
