Back To School

Yes, believe it or not, it's back-to-school time! You'd think that I'd have time to do some updating and journal surfing, but school just started back last Wednesday and I've been too tired. No, that's an understatement. I'm exhausted! Summer has wiped me out. Stephen has already missed one day of school. Today was his annual neurology appointment. All is going well. He's grown a little taller and gained a little weight since last year. Just look at him up there in the photo taken yesterday ... he'll be as big as me before we know it. The Dr. upped his seizure medicine dosage, according to his growth/weight-gain and wrote a new prescription for something that should help another problem that has been getting progressively worse. I'll get into that at another time. I just don't want to go there right now. To tell you the truth, I have been slacking on my iron supplements and I don't have the energy to get into much right now. ::yawn:: I'd give anything for an afternoon nap like my mama used to take every day. Lucky for her, I could come home from school and pretty much take care of myself and go outside alone, unsupervised.      

edit: Well, the DH is home from work early! Maybe that nap can be arranged! Whoohoo! (not holding my breath) lol - I'll check back in asap.

Take that nap, girl!  They do you a world of good.  In fact, I took one myself a few days ago.  <grin>  

Stephen is growing like a weed!  My goodness, he is going to be as tall as you soon!  Parker starts school next week.  I'm nervous.  I'm sure he'll do fine....but you know how it is.   Mommy's worry.  

Glad to hear from you!

There is nothing more pleasant than an afternoon nap. "Snuggling with "a friend" is OK but, afternoon naps are better as singular. Stephen looks real good from the picture. Hope he can stay well and do good in school. Send and email and let us know how you folks are doing once in a while. Regards, Bill, Libby, Spirit, and Bruno.

I was out doing school shopping today and happened to think of Stephen so I stopped by to see if he started school yet and I see he has.  What a happy picture of you both.  He sure is getting tall.  Naps are good!

What a great picture and what a handsome young man Stephen is growing in to.

Sorry, it's been so long since I've checked in with you. I was thinking of you tonight because of Katrina and was hoping you had updated. I'll keep you in my thoughts until you do. Hoping all is well! :-) ---Robbie

P.S. You look gorgeous in your "back to school" photo.

Just checking in to see how you are doing after Katrina.  I do hope all of you are safe.  Let us know how you are doing.
