There was a surprise waiting in my mailbox this afternoon - my new keyboard for my netbook! Sadly, this is exciting news for me. It really doesn't take much to thrill me. I held my breath while my husband connected it. I was sure it wasn't going to work, but it did! Anastasia was about to ask if she could use it, but my glare must have scared her away.
Victoria has to go back to the physical therapist tomorrow because her handsplints are giving her bleeding sores. Poor baby. Poor me. The appointment is early, so I have to drag myself out of bed. I am NOT a morning person.
Victoria also has learned how to yank out her NG tube at night. It's such a joy to find her sheets soaking wet with the expensive formula that was supposed to go in her tummy, not all over her hair.
I have been trying, unsuccessfully to learn Spanish, but I did learn something new today. My son taught me how to "waterfall" Gatoraide, because, God forbid, I should actually put my germy lips on the rim of HIS drink. He assured me he wouldn't spill a drop on me. So, while we sat at a red light, he attempted to the pour the sticky blue liquid into my open mouth from great heights. I think about a teaspoon actually made it to my mouth, while I was bathed in the rest of it for the long ride home. My son thought this was quite hysterical. Children are such little jewels, aren't they?!
Well, I have caught a cold from another little jewel. I just downed some sleepy medicine, so good night everyone!
Did anyone else learn anything interesting today?
