So July was mixture of things, good things, funny things, whiskey tango foxtrot things. My Dad had his gallbladder removed early in the month and since his wife was on call at the hospital I was a back-up. Just to make sure he took his pain medication and carried no fever or other sign of infection. It was the first time I had ever spent the night away from Evelyn since she was born. I have been away from Sean and all of those were hospital admittances.
After carefully weighing our options we sold the Tardis. CarMax was a great experience and the Tardis didn’t stay on the lot a week until someone bought it. I truly hope that the Tardis is giving some young teenager or a new family some joy. For us Galactica is now our primary vehicle.
I came home one day and found a Scorpion in our kitchen sink. Yes I did type scorpion not spider. Bugs on a whole don’t weird me out, don’t get me wrong if they were in my bed I would freak but on the most part I can deal with them. Scorpions are tough suckers! I don’t own boots so I couldn’t smash it and if it was a pregnant female smashing them causes the babies to run out. Get this you cannot drown them, they can survive in pools. This thing rivals the Xenomorph running around the Nostromo! So I sprayed it with bleach cleaner it squirmed for a bit before dying and then I could get rid of it.
My children continue to surprise me and I know that sounds cliche but it is true! They are so different and the same but the difference on this particular day reminded me of that nursery rhyme of Jack Sprat. However, in my universe it goes
I had my six month surveillance by my GP as instructed by the genetic counselors and all seems well. My GP is actually going to send my case to the radiology department for their input. According to him I am in the weird age bracket where there are a whole host of opinions of what to do. So he is going to get the radiologists opinion.
The last day of July saw the last lesson with Sean and his swim instructor, she has made Sean water safe and proficient and we can’t thank her enough! Sean has had her since just before he turned 4. It is her last summer at CSUSB before she goes off to bigger, better and more grand things. Sean made her card and a key-chain and she posed for a photo.
