While I don’t hold it against Maggie, the rubbing of the Buddha belly did NOT work for this past Sunday … (must have needed more candles.) And – if I give it much thought, I’m already fearing this weekend, as I watch the moon get larger and larger … Scientifically proven or not, those of us that work in the ER know it as fact – the full moon brings in bizarre patients … But – it’s only the wee hours of Wednesday morning, too soon to dread.
My oldest son got his retainer this week. Oh boy – this is gonna be a long year. For anyone that doesn’t know – the retainers are pretty similar in structure to dentures – except (I HOPE!) his ‘top plate’ doesn’t seem to be fitting right … He seems to be having saliva-control issues. Anyone that works with me, especially our night shift respiratory therapist, knows – I don’t do oral secretions well. So – with my son making this noise – it’s bringing about all of these visuals of copious yellow/green, sticky, stringy ‘snot’ oozing out of trach holes – diligently ‘holding on’, refusing to be suctioned away … I’m not feeling so much like mother-of-the-material, as my son is literally making me want to vomit. We’ll be calling the orthodontist today. Movin’ on …
I’ve been a bum the last 2 days: Discovered a couple of new authors I’m avidly reading, playing with the pups, having some family time. Not much for productivity in the studio. Although I am shipping out a couple of items. And we’ve been making some ‘baby steps’ with the pendants and badge reels … made a few rough, got a few more ready for fire-polishing.
Oh … we are officially participating in a craft show. Yep – John committed. So, if you’re not doing anything December 4th – come on by the Warm-n-Cozy Bazaar … and give my husband some grief!
