"Try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn..."

Blurbs

A cancelled therapy session on Tuesday prompted an impromptu trip to the beach, and it was wonderful! The weather was beautiful, my little family was together, and we splashed in the ocean, dug in the sand, strolled in the streets and played at the playground my husband grew up playing at. Pictures to come.

Marla's father in law had a cardiac catharization to remove a blockage from his arteries after a mid heart attack. The procedure was done today and not a moment too soon- while his heart attack was (thankfully) mild his blockage was not. It was a 99% occlusion of a vital artery. If left for much longer the results could have been disastrous. So thankful that it was cleared before more permanent damage was done, and that he could go home today with his risks greatly lowered.

It's been a very long time since I bought myself clothes, and what I do have is essentially disintegrating off of my body. I know I don't care about clothes, but even I know it's time to get my ass to Old Navy and buy a damn pair of jeans.

Our troubles with PJ's DI services continue. Today, the third therapist to be referred to us called two hours before her scheduled arrival time (for what was to be her first visit) inform me that she had to cancel in order to attend an IFSP meeting for another family. As those types of meetings are scheduled well in advance I'm not entirely sure how she didn't know this when she made the appointment with us. She told me that she would call to reschedule when she was not driving and had her calender in front of her. She never called. Needless to say, I have reached the end of my patience.

What else can you do when you're frustrated but take your favorite toddler out for a Mommy/PJ frozen yogurt date. I had a bowl of something that tasted just like those lemon Girl Scout cookies and PJ enjoyed vanilla sprinkled liberally with gummi bears and sprinkles. He behaved beautifully and wielded his spoon like a champ and smiled at me as he declared his treat to be a "yummy snack!" I just looked at his little face, sitting across the table from me, and felt my heart fill with love. He's such a big boy and I just love him so.

I can hardly believe it's nearly the end of August. I just don't know where this summer has gone. But, as usual per this time of year, I find myself ready for the fall. I'm longing for open-window weather and trees with firery red leaves and jeans and sweatshirt weather. It is, without a doubt, my favorite time of year. I'm already dreamng of PJ's Halloween costume!

My mammogram? Clear! (More on that later)

Bedtime? Now. Good night, friends. <3>
