Yes, I have been MIA. We have had quite a difficult spring. We thought we were staying in Where George Walked for another two years, but were informed that we are moving to OKC. The move is now two and a half weeks away.
One of our daughters has had some serious health challenges since February, so much so that her physician told us we had to halt homeschooling. We got a medical a waiver from the county so that she would not be truant. She is on the mend, and will be able to go into third grade when we move. She is a bit behind in math, but we plan on doing some work over the summer to catch her up. If we have to hire a tutor, so be it.
Last fall I found out I had a number of kidney stones. About three weeks ago, one of them reared its ugly little head. I’ve spent the past three weeks running to medical appointments and downing pain meds. I still have four more to pass in my right kidney, but the urologist does not believe they will be passing within the next month. If they hold off until we are settled, I will be happy. I do NOT relish the thought of driving halfway across the country while passing stones.
Our beloved doggie was injured and ended up having more than half of his tail amputated. The injury occurred two months ago, and he still has to wear a cone, a muzzle and a muzzle cup to prevent him from licking.
On the bright side, our little one graduated from Kindergarten a couple of weeks ago. She is quite an avid and proficient reader, and is reading far above her age level, just like big sis.
So, those are the reasons I have been MIA. I don’t know the next time I will post. Sorry.
