oh my goodness, another year has gone by! This has been the “best year of his life” he will tell you and when asked *(how are you)* his new answer is this:
“I’m living the dream”!
Yep the little guy turns 11 today
and up there in VA he is, with the remains of an earache that he left here with,
he in the right ear and me here with the left!
I cannot remember the last time I had an earache, probably as a kid I guess,
but this one got so bad I finally screamed uncle and went to see my lovely doc last evening.
She even said the physician technical term used only for the very bad things in life:
“yuk” as she looked into my ear!
So, with that being said, off to the local drug store to get drops and two weeks of antibiotics and told to take it easy.
Take it easy?
I had great plans to do that, until presented with that little bottle of drops and told they cost
Oh more ached than my ear at that moment, as I wished I was back in the doctor office in case my heart pittered and pattered out of sync.
I contemplated not getting them, after all it is just an infection in my ear, that leads to my brain, face, neck where the lymph nodes are already inflamed and swollen.
What in the world could those little tiny drops do anyway that antibiotics couldn’t?
After a thought or two, realizing that infection could in fact eat my brain, I decided I did not need that heartache, or anymore of my brain eaten away than already is by the winds of change and all the talk of campaigns and the folks coming into my state trying to control my body so I might just better dig deep since Mitten Romney hadn’t sent me a check lately to help me pay for things.
$128.00 for ear drops, perhaps they are liquid gold and will help soon.
Kamryn’s ear drops cost 29.00 I wondered as I left had the pharmacist made a mistake while he was here, but then remembered he had to return to a doctor once he got to VA, and she had said those drops were not strong enough as she prescribed antibiotics and more drops for him as well.
ok, earaches, heartaches, life aches,
baskeball in the pool, getting hit in the face with that darn ball after it bangs off the backboard
Kamryn sneak attacking me and almost drowning me in the pool!
All makes sense now,
I get the other ear infected to make a full set so we match, his right my left!
Well how bout that?
Enough to make your mindache
as you think about it
or laugh yourself silly.
Mind aches as we listen to ads, watch mind numbing TV and try to not suffer secondary anger issues listening to the words of others that open their mouths to inflame or to irritate others on a daily basis.
Seems a lot of anger these days,
wonder if folks worked out in pools, shot hoops on courts or bought those boxing bags
and just hit on them
if it would help?
Attention deficit or just more squirrels about town as we see more hear more
and do less to say enough already!
Yep enough to make a mind ache
if it wasn’t for a blooming earache that is making it hard to hear!
I’ve said, “huh what did you say” so many times, I should record it this week,
yet I feel like I am hearing and speaking while under water; I wonder if this is what the sea creatures feel like or hear…
Growth aches now as kids return to school for some a foot taller than when they left for the summer. Feet, hands and bright minds growing and clothes that stretch as they move into new classes and meet new teachers for the first times.
Young people who now enter the college arena not quite knowing what to expect, yet know everything it seems will be in for an awakening as those growth aches take hold in the coming months.
Heartaches as loss fills the air and the light changes.
Ah it is all about change, about pocket change, time change, light change.
The tides are changing and it is the sun before the storms here, as the RNC prepares to arrive and take over Tampa and Issac approaches.
Both dangerous indeed and on their way to Florida, where police officers tell me they are already working 16 hour shifts and it will get worse before it gets better for them.
May all be safe
on this day of August 23.
Send emails but don’t expect me to hear you if you call.
It’s Kamryn’s birthday today
so I think I’ll celebrate
by shooting a few hoops
after my nap and the ear drops ease the pain
maybe I’ll snuggle on the couch and watch
the Disney Channel and eat a Reese’s Cup in his honor!
To all those who have celebrated the
I hope yours are as joyous and wonderful
and that you are “living the dream”
and enjoying each bite!
Happy Birthday to all!
Happy Friday to the rest of ya!
