TGIF.....

Friday Follow ---- Blog Hop

hosted by One 2 Try, Hearts Make Families and Midday Escapades!

Yesterday was a trip.  It started out well enough with The Hubs coming to take me out to lunch so that we could finish signing our paperwork for the DVC ... that was a wonderful break from my daily toil ... of course, we had to sign a lot and we've pretty much signed our lives away on another mortgage...again.  We should be used to it by now since we've already starting pledging our souls, our home, our first born, etc. to the banks to get his business up and running.  Its all good.  He said the next time we decide to do this (sign our lives away) he is bringing his signature stamp so that he doesn't get a hand cramp from signing so many different forms!  I thought it was amazing how my signature changed from one form to the next.  How are they supposed to remain the same when you're signing so many papers?  Anyhoo - it's all good.  We have our first DVC trip booked for December so that we can experience "Disney at Christmas".  Everyone is excited.  I'm not sure how we're all going to be able to wait for the day to get here when we leave.  

After work, I took all three kidlets to the doctor.  I love, love, love our pediatrician.  The Hubs made the switch to her last year in the winter when we could not figure out what was wrong with DinoBoy after he was in and out of former pediatrician's offices for 3 months.  One trip to this new doctor (who my SIL found for her little boy) and she began a new course of treatment for DinoBoy and he was better within a few weeks.  Amazing gal, she is!!  Doubly amzing too becuase she took the time to see my gaggle of kids after her normal office hours were over for the night.  Here I was walking in for a 6:45 p.m. appointment ... DinoBoy couldn't catch his breath again (just like when he was sick last winter), Twink had a sore throat and an earache, and SweeTart was still miserable after being diagnosed on Tuesday with an ear infection and an upper respiratory infection.  The end result was:  DinoBoy just has a cold but will need a nebulizer every four hours for the next few days because he is wheezing; Twinkletoes has an ear infection but not strep; and SweeTart's ear infection has gotten worse so everyone is going home with prescriptions for one thing or another.  Doc called in our prescriptions at 7:00 and I was hoping to have them before the kidlets went to bed.  I waited at the pharmacy for almost 45 mintues while they worked out kinks with the insurance company and finally filled the "mixes" for the girls.  GEEZ!!!  I didn't get home until after 9:00 and their bedtime is 8:30  .... needless to say ... I'm exhausted.  (and I'm not even sick!) 

Today will be a great day even though the weather is still crappy over here in NJ -- we've got a sitter and are going out with our friends for dinner.  I'm sure our dinner conversation will be a heated one over the current state of the State's budget and our new Governor's call on teachers to take a pay freeze for one year and begin to contribute to their health benefits....the friends that we are going to be dining with are both teachers.  I work in a school district so I know first hand how things are going down but it takes a village to raise a child ... and I'm a firm believer that everyone, everyone from the top of the administration to the bottom of the scale must make concessions ... no more "I teach your children ... I mold the future of America " that I have actually heard teacher friends of mine say ... I will give a little so that everyone can keep their jobs!! 

Toodles ... have a wonderful weekend!
