Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


A better day

Thank God. I don't think I could handle being THAT pathetic again this morning.

Got a good night's sleep. Army of Dad missed his early flight, so I got to run by the terminal and spend about 10 minutes with him before I had to get to work. That is where having the security clearance is a nice perk. I'll take the kids to greet him at the gate when he comes home on Sunday, too.

Feel better today. My stomach is starting to soften up a bit and not feel so tight. The advice the nurse gave me on using the pad in the crease of my leg made a WORLD of difference. It is not hurting at all and yesterday it was aching constantly. Thank the Lord for that. However, my seroma spot is starting to leak again (that makes me feel better actually), but it is getting sort of hard and red and that makes me fear that it is an infection. My doctor is out of town till tomorrow, but I called a nurse and she is going to check to see if it is infected or not and call me back. So, we'll see.

I got to see Pickle today. Uzz was shooting a press conference at the airport and brought Pickle with him and he got to see mom at work for a bit while I was giving a tour to American Airlines folks. Was good to see him. I miss him so much. He is spending a lot of time with his dad this summer, which is good for him. He is getting exposed to so many wonderful things. He got to meet Van Cliburn while Uzz was shooting. He's met area Cowboys and Rangers athletes. He gets to do great stuff with his dad. I just miss having him home with me, but he is coming home tomorrow night and we're going to do all sorts of fun stuff.

Saturday morning we have a zoo party and we'll go visit the zoo. I may be crazy for taking three children to the zoo by myself, but we'll see. Saturday night, LabKat and JS are coming over for dinner and a viewing of Napolean Dynamite. I still haven't seen it. Sunday, I'm taking the kids to the Imax and then we'll go see Army of Dad arrive. We'll ride the Skylink train a few times, too, while we're there.

One more tour today and then I need to get cracking on writing a press release. My boss put me TOTALLY in charge of organizing and orchestrating a symposium on accessibility. WOW! I'm still shocked that he trusts me to do it. So Friday is being dedicated to nothing but that. I have many facets in place, but need to get on it big time.
