Cereal for lunch

  • Cereal for lunch.  Blanket forts in the living room.  Banana-flavoured antibiotics three times a day.  Both of my girls had the flu last week and are better now, but the antibiotic routine for my youngest, who ended up with an ear infection, lives on.  The house has yet to recover.
  • Yesterday I spent the bulk of the day sitting under heated hospital blankets and waiting in various hallways for a test that I'm pretty sure was only marginally necessary and will reveal nothing of interest to anyone, but the key thing to know is that it involved sedation.  Not my area of expertise, but I'm pretty sure that I wasn't totally out for the procedure.  When I got home yesterday, all I could remember was having cool liquid pushed into my IV and then waking up in the recovery room.  Today, however, I'm having flashbacks to snippets of conversation that I may or may not have had with the doctor at some point during, before or after the procedure.  Anyone who knows me well knows that I have spent the past several hours worrying about whether I said anything embarrassing.
  •  This thing here . . .

  • . . . is a doodle I began and then abandoned months ago.  I've tried about a hundred times to colour it and can't seem to come up with anything I'm happy with.  Eventually it will sort itself out, I'm sure.
  • There is a new journal page on the horizon.  I'm thinking it will likely be ready on Thursday.  So I hope you'll join me back here then!


  1. hope your procedure & results are a distant memory & you are "back in the game" again?
    sending you {{hugs}} for a speedy recovery from all the bugs & tests you've endured in the past several weeks.

  2. I hope you all recover quickly. I just have to say that I was having cereal for lunch :)

  3. Praying that you receive good news from your test, and that your household heals quickly.
    Try not to worry (easier said than done, right?)...

  4. You're in my thoughts. Cereal rocks anytime. And so do forts.

  5. I love the wonder doodle Christie!
    I hope you are all well now :-)
    Blanket forts rock ☺
