school portrait and blurred vision

I had an eye exam today, and still, my vision is blurred! Errr. So please overlook the typos. Found out I am farsighted, with astigmatism, at least I think that's what the Dr. said. I found out too, that I can't hear as well when I can't see. Go figure.. . But, more importantly, isn't this a cute little picture of our Taz? I scanned the proof :) Everyone who has seen it thus far says it's cute. When I squint, and tilt my head to the right, I can see it pretty good, although it's still hard to see his features. ;-P

I haven't been blogging very much over the weekend, but have been visiting some very interesting blogs.  Various folks have stopped by and wished Stephen well; thanks everyone. I will try my best to sit here long enough (after I get my glasses) and list all of my favorite journals.  They are really adding up! Lots of interesting bloggers out there.. and I can't wait to introduce y'all to them. I have to run now, as I honestly cant see much more than a big, blurry smear on the monitor. (darn it) Take care!

Don't forget to say a little prayer for Stephen, y'all!

Hey all, here it is, after 10.. why do I NEVER go to sleep at a decent hour?  I'll be up till midnight, and then complain at 6 am that I haven't gotten my much needed beauty sleep.  LOL... Just wanted to remind you friends, tomorrow at 1:30, Stephen will follow up with the cardiologist.  So, say a little prayer, please!  I'm pretty sure all is okay. He's had no wheezing, etc. Oh, one more thing, we meet with the staff at school on Thursday @ 2.  Wish us luck! Till next time. ...

This picture was taken of Stephen on Thursday night.  He had a temp of 100.7

You can tell he isn't quite himself, because he is resting on the sofa.  But, notice the smile on his face :)  If only I could smile, no matter what.... He's our angel.  We are beginning to think it was either viral, and he is getting better, or the ear infection returned and the fever killed the bacteria. (that is what fever is supposed to do, so I've been told) Just to be on the safe side, we are going to the Pediatrcian tomorrow. (Stephen's Pediatrician's office is open 7 days a week... it just costs about double on the weekends, and you have to go to the one in Hoover)  I want to make sure he has a clean bill of health before sending him back to school on Monday.  He's only been to school one day since Labor Day! 

 Well, it's late, and I have laundry waiting to be folded. I mopped the kitchen floor before blogging and it should be dry enough to walk to the laundry room and finish my work. Is a woman's work ever done? I swear, I even dream about things I have to do! Why can't I have nice, relaxing dreams.... like, walking on the beach or something? Hm, anyone out there analyze dreams? Have a good weekend! Please, remember to pray for Stephen's health.

Hey, all. Stephen is still home, sick with something... I don't know what it is. He's just been a little feverish, and although I know he doesn't mean it, he's been getting on my nerves this week.  Could be me, probably, most probable it isn't him.  I am wearing the estrogen patch that the Dr. ordered me to wear. She said would would help me handle the stress etc...

Anyway I don't want to talk about problems right now:::I found this really, neat site today which tells you the  meaning of your name, according to some, funky - philosophy.  Here's mine:

 Your first name of Mia has given you energy, drive, and ambition, but also an almost excessively strong-willed and independent nature. While you are creative, inventive, and ingenious in practical matters, and always ready to initiate and promote new undertakings, you often experience difficulty in bringing your undertakings to a successful conclusion because of your own changing interests or changing circumstances. You become intensely involved with everything you plan to do, but the stress arising from frustrating obstacles or misunderstandings with others could prompt you to be intolerant and sarcastic in your expression, with breakdowns in congenial relations with family and friends a possible end result.

Health Weaknesses for the name of: Mia

Any emotional outbursts or moods would register as tension in your solar plexus, resulting in nervous indigestion and related problems. Tension could also centre in the head affecting the eyes, ears, sinuses, or teeth. True relaxation and peace of mind are elusive under this name.
