I have made it through the WEEK! Yeah!
Yesterday the Kids and I took off for the coast at right after Andrew left for work and got home with Moe's Clam Chowder right as he pulled in from the Job! We had a GREAT day at the Beach and fun at the Oregon Aquarium (which will never be the same after Kako left) Jeremiah got to see the Jelly Fish which was a big treat for him as he has become the number one Sponge Bob fan on earth. I still have NO Clue what a "Sea Bear" is but Andrew tells me it is a Fish with a Bear head that bites and the only thing worse is s Sea Rhino? HUH???? Jeremiah is terrified of "Sea Bears" and I still have no clue what one is?
Still talking about Jeremiah he is starting to be VERY Angry with being called a "Bull Frog" and covers his ears if anyone tries to Sing the Song to him. Yesterday he said he wants to have a different name and be called Andrew like his dad.... Just when I was getting used to the name Jeremiah! But I really don't blame him if one more person gives him a Frog I think I will have to get mad!
Makala has been doing very WELL this week! WOW and Great! Anything that has happened I classify as Normal 7 year old stuff! Which is exactly what I want "Normal 7 year old stuff" is all fine by me! I am so glad that things are on an even tone right now!
Just wish she was getting ready to return to regular school! I really have no idea how far behind she is at this point. I do hope she can catch up without too many issues...
We are waiting for the referral for the MRI and PET scan still! I plan to push this issue next week. I would really like to rule it in or out... soon!
Anyway that is all right now in my life... A normalish week and feeling much better--of course except that my back is acting up! But that is the way my life is...I always have some pain in the neck or another!
