News from the land of boredom

There's nothing really profound to report here aside from the fact I've gotten in to a routine that really seems to be working for me. I've made it work for an entire week, even with having everyone home over the weekend!

That means the first 7 days to making this in to a habit are under my belt!

Tomorrow will be a real challenge because it will be the first day I will have an event right in the middle of my cleaning/organizing time. I am going to be interested in seeing how I respond to this disruption. Leelee has a dentist appointment and will be home from school all day. I am expecting her to be rather clingy since she's probably having a tooth pulled.

I am hoping to get most of my work for tomorrow morning done before bed tonight. We'll see how that goes.

Other worries for tomorrow is that we will be walking in to a minefield at the dentist office. Leelee is allergic to latex and dentist offices, doctor offices and hospitals are full of latex. I am very apprehensive about this. Terrified that we are going to have to use her epi-pen.

It's just rather scary to know that such a routine visit could be fatal if someone ignores the big sticker on her chart that says "LATEX ALLERGY." This isn't just an unlikely fear. Last summer she had to make an ER visit and we told the admit nurse and everyone else who came in to her room she was latex allergic...and in comes a nurse ready to treat her wearing latex gloves. It's incredibly frustrating.

So tomorrow will hopefully be very non-eventful.
