because some days, the calendar is wrong

so last night, as I was tidying up and getting the garbage and recycling ready and waiting for my shameful addiction to begin (yes, I watch So You Think You Can Dance), when suddenly it occurred to me. It was not Wednesday. (Of course, I only realized this AFTER I flipped through every guide channel in an attempt to find out what had happened to my beloved SYTYCD.) In the span of a few short hours, I lost and gained an extra day to Friday, which is, of course, the best day of the week.

And to boot, I have this Friday off. :)

I think the calendar snuck an extra day in while I wasn't paying attention. I am going to have to keep a closer eye on that.

Socks, socks, socks

I must admit that I have been slightly remiss. I got a little cocky with the first of my daddy's day socks, and have slacked off ever since. I have the second sock about 3/4 of the way done. And it has been that way for a few days now. I am thinking that I am going to have to settle down and finish it this evening, as I have plans tomorrow, and will likely enjoy the drinks, weather and company too much to want to work on it.

Daddy's Day

It has been a much better week (touch wood) than last week. Actually, I suppose much better than the last few weeks.

For starters, I will (hopefully) be getting my golf clubs tonight. Because I am that kind of geek.

And, I am actually going to be able to see my dad on daddy's day (novel concept).

So, I started these on Sunday just past. The other one is well on its way to being done.

An Unneccesary Evil

So it has been an interesting past few weeks, if nothing else. I apologize for my lack of updating as of late. June appears to be a month of many things finally being settled. I am just hoping that not much more comes up.

I have decided that GPs are one of the evils of the world. My daughter has had continual ear and chest infections for about 18 months now. Just as one clears up, another one begins (normally within 2 - 3 weeks at most). Our family doctor has long told me this is normal, and since she had just begun daycare when this started, for a while, I could buy that. However, as this continued, I felt less comfortable in his assessment of this being "normal". The last occurrence of an ear infection (yesterday), I screamed blue murder at him. He told me that he was certain the infections were caused by an allergy, however feels that she is too young for an allergy test (yet I know of many individuals who have taken their children for these tests much sooner than 3.5 years). I asked him to set up a referral to a specialist so that a specialist could confirm his theory and my mind could be eased. is the fun one...he refused. He "is not prepared to do that". What the hell is that? How can a doctor tell me that they are not prepared to see to the health and well being of one of their patients?

Needless to say, I will not be going back to him. I am currently seeking out another avenue for getting the referral I need to have my daughter seen by a specialist and, as I am guessing this will happen, have tubes put in her ears.

The petty side of these events...I had just finished the sweater posted below on Monday night...and wore it for the first time ever yesterday. Because I had to leave work early to get my daughter, no one saw it. :(

Not the best picture, and with the way I am standing, it looks a little off, but oh well...such is life.
