"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Thats life

Well, we are still waiting. Trust me at this point if we got 'the call', I think everyone in the tri state area would know. :)

I've been having killer headaches the last month or so. It was bad.... so bad that I went to the doctor. Anyone that knows me knows this is monumental. I go to my yearly appt, that is it. I don't get sick, and if I do its nothing worth going to the doctor for. But these headaches have really been bringing me down, so I made an appointment and within 2wks had numerous appointments that included an MRI courtesy of my ENT. I got the results from that back today, and thankfully, I have a brain! And nothing else that is cause for concern (because again, if you know me, my brain is cause enough... hehe).

I'm so thankful (and have said multiple thanks to the Man up above) for the clear MRI. I am also seeing a chiropractor as recommended by my ENT. I was also informed today that if my tonsils dont clear up with this round of antibiotics, he wants to remove them. I barely take Motrin, so taking another round of antibiotics is a big deal. And surgery? Yikes.

Anyway, I'm just thankful that my head is normal (as it can be) and hoping that continuing the chiropractic care will work it out. It has made a difference. Now if we can just avoid surgery....

I was really hoping we'd have the girl(s) home by Christmas this year.... but now its so close its not looking like that will happen this year either. I've been eyeing up gifts that I would choose for her should she be home for Christmas, or at least in the general area of Christmas. Will I get to buy them? I hope so.

The boys are doing fabulous! Al is enjoying 2nd grade and I really like the setup of his classroom this year. The teacher allows the kids to sit on the big exercise balls instead of chairs. I cannot tell you how big of a difference this makes in his fidgeting. This teacher is a genius! LOL! Also he started back with he gifted ed program last month, and he's very excited about that. He goes for reading and math.

Little A is also in school this year, and is having a blast! We are fortunate enough to have our wonderful neighbor as his preschool teacher. She works at the public school in the early childhood program, which is where his preschool is. Can't beat that... a teacher he knows to ease him into his school. Its so cute to see him with his backpack on walking into school like a big boy.

So thats life. :)
