UGH! This computer is moving like molasses. And wouldn't you know it...I have a bunch of photos to upload and share.
Super bowl antics. It ended up that Tom and I where here with only the 4 little ones. Everyone else was either working or invited somewhere else. Eileen and Olivia got into the game spirit and got their game faces on.
Michelle and Carrie got home just after half time ended. They had their own little party in Michelle's room since she has the best tv in the house. Most here were happy that the Saints won. At Pat's house it was a very sad occasion.
The rest of the week went on fine. Carrie had her TODAY study appt. We picked up Carrie from school at 1:45, dropped Michelle off to work early at 2:20 and then headed to the city.
Hiding on Carrie. Carrie was out of the room getting her vitals taken. Danielle and Sean decided they'd hide behind the door and scare her when she got back. Here they are with Danielle peeking out of the crack, watching for her.
Danielle's hair was going crazy (moreso then normal) so Carrie tried to tame it with a pony.
Carrie getting down to the nitty gritty.
Her blood pressure was good for the first time in a long time! She's been good about taking that medicine since it's once a day...in the morning. It's trying to remember the 2nd dose of her diabetes medicine at night that's the problem (and weekends).
Carrie's been bugging me to get her ears pierced. I've always told the girls not until you're 18...old enough to give their own consent. As time has gone on my take on pierced ears has changed. I've found that after the excitement of getting them done is gone, most people tend to not care about it so much. You throw in a cute pair once in a while but for the most part...they're just there. Still it wasn't fair to the other girls if I gave in. Then it came to me....Carrie's been having such a hard time getting on track and taking ownership of her medication requirements. So I made a deal with her...If she can take her medicine twice a day everyday and test her sugar at least once a day and log it...she can get her ears pierced. Guess what...she's taken control and has only forgotten one night (we both swore she took it, she must have become distracted in the middle of doing it...I've given her a by on it)
Next up....Island Week!
