I guess you could say I started my spring cleaning. Not elbows deep in scrubbing kind of cleaning just yet but rather emptying mode. I'm in the process of going through closets and reorganizing or getting rid of stuff. I managed to get the car seat and stroller in the front hall closet so that instantly makes more room in the living room. I also started attacking my craft closet. I destashed over half my yarns. I haven't been knitting much lately and I kept enough yarns for some specific projects. The rest are yarns I bought with projects in mind then changed my mind or stuff I just bought randomly because buying yarn was my addiction in Germany. I'm hoping to sell it all. The mulla will probably go towards a new vacuum or carpet cleaner lol.
I so don't want to go to work today. Deep down i'd love to take an extended break from work. I feel there is always something that needs to be done with Mannix around now and I just can't get to it all. But my income is needed. After talking I apparently misunderstood Rob about not working. So it looks like even when he puts on another rank...i'll still be off to work...
My life feels filled with appointments these days. Its exhausting. I have about 2 appointments every week between Mannix and me. I'm ready for a break on appointments. This week it was another dental for me and Mannix's eye check up today. Last week was his shots and helmet scan. Next week he gets his helmet. Apparently the fillings i'm getting are mostly fixing up my old ones. Today I had one group of teeth done and when I got home realized all my silver one's in that section were gone. Apparently they have aged enough that some of them were starting to chip. It's weird not seeing the silver there anymore. But nice because if I laugh open mouthed you won't tell I had fillings lol. I have 3 more sections or 'Quadrants' to be done. All I can say is don't neglect the dentist. While even when I did go for routine cleanings I was still prone to cavities but the appointments weren't as extensive then. Now i'm playing catch up for years of neglect. Ugh. I swear by the time i'm done all my teeth with have fillings. But i'm not the only one in the world that does this. 2 of my friends haven't had dental work in over 10yrs.
I'm pretty nervous about the helmet. I feel a little bit like a failure that we couldn't get his head fixed enough on our own but according to his visiting nurse we did an amazing job. She didn't think he'd end up needing it but according to the orthotics place he does. We spent weeks deliberating over whether we should go through with the helmet or not. We felt like his head was pretty well shaped now but we decided it wasn't for us it was for him. Whether we think it's a load of crap and pointless doesn't matter. In the end we decided that we would feel better knowing we followed through with it vs not doing it and then something bad coming of it. His skull is misshaped and that's the bottom line. It's misshaped enough that deep down we worried what would happen if we didn't get it.
I'll get a photo up next week when he gets it. I'm just so nervous about how he will react to it. The orthotisist said majority of his reaction will be how we treat him and behave around him with it. So I will just pretend it's not there. He has to wear it 23hrs a day. He gets it off for bath time and that's about it.
