I can't believe the hot mess of a post I gave y'all yesterday. I thought I'd have at least a half an hour to an hour of lucidity after I took the pill, but that is clearly not the case.
I SLEPT LIKE AN ANGEL, and woke up really looking forward to the day. I was a little groggy, but it's nothing a shower and a Diet Dr. Pepper didn't clear up, though. Finally, 9 hours of sleep. I LOVE that stuff. Addiction, here I come!
I left Ace with my mom this morning so I could go to the allergy clinic. My appointment was at 9, I had a CT scan at 9:45 at a whole nother building, I was at home by 10:30, and by 11, I had a diagnosis. Dr. Venarske at the Mississippi Allergy and Asthma Clinic is the bomb, son. Apparently, 2 out of 3 of my sinuses have fluid and infection, and tomorrow, I will be starting a 4-week course of antibiotics and a bottle of Flonase. If that doesn't work, I'll have actual allergy testing. The doctor said that I have the worst case of green and white snot in the back of my throat that he'd seen in a long time. Oddly enough, that's the nicest compliment I've had all day.
At noon, I had an appointment to get Ace measured and casted for new ankle braces. He started looking nervous when he was being casted, so I gave him my iPhone to distract him. Within a few seconds, he found the iPod, and what was the first song that blasted from my speakers into the face of the unwitting dude wrapping a cast around my son's foot?
"I'M BRINGIN' SEXY BACK."
I love my child. That was a very mild, giggle-inducing embarrassment, and it could've been SO MUCH WORSE. At least it wasn't Ice Cube's "Put Your Back Into It."
When we got home, I threw him in bed and started cleaning again. For the first time in MONTHS, I actually FEEL like cleaning. I finished up the toy exodus, concentrating on the toys all over the kitchen floor, then moved on to the guest bathroom. I now have at least 8 garbage bags full of stuff I'm going to donate to local churches, plus a respectable pile of crap for a garage sale.
Tomorrow is a trip to Pump It Up, then Wal-Mart, then hopefully another cleaning jag. I'm starting to finally feel positive for the first time in a very long time. Y'all's prayers are so welcome and helpful. I love y'all, for reals.
