MON | 23 oh boy! it sure is hard to get back in to a routine when you've been away for 4.5 days and no one needed you for anything. i just had to show up places. madi missed half of the day because we went to walgreens for her to get her physical for cheer tryouts. she had to turn it in today. we also got einstein bagels because walgreens didn't open until 9:00. max had a baseball game tonight. they lost 13 - 3. he didn't seem to mind too much, especially when he got another snack bar ticket (he also had one saved from his last game too) and while i was talking with a couple other moms, he got himself 8 (yes EIGHT) ring pops. he was nice enough to share with the girls. him and madi played a quick game of battleship before max had to jump in the shower. (notice he's wearing darric's old vest again?)
TUE | 24 went and got the grocery shopping done. that afternoon, the kids had their dentist appointment. we had to cancel madi's because she was going to the cheer thing right after school. max gets to come back in a couple days for sealants and two fillings in his back teeth (something to do with the buckles in them). we ran and got sonic drinks before we went and picked up madi.
WED | 25 dentist appointment for me today. i tried not to be nervous, but i still was. i got numbed three, maybe four, times. (better safe than sorry) there was a bit of the pushing and pulling that made me worried my jaw might bust, but other than that, it was easy peasy to get that bottom right wisdom tooth out. i changed the gauze every 30 minutes for the next 2 hours and rinsed with some salt water. got mashed potatoes and mac+cheese for lunch because my mouth was sore. madi had another cheer thing at silvestri after school until 4:30. and max had a practice from 7:00 - 8:30, while kenzie had a practice from 6:00 - 8:00. darric had to do some jobs in cedar city and st george today, but he got home in plenty of time to take kenzie. madi joined me for max's practice. the main coach wasn't there tonight, but the people that were there coaching, did a way better job with the kids. p.s. i got some more happy mail today... a box from tomkat with some fun party stuff in it!
THU | 26 no school for max today. we had to be at the dentist at 9:00 to take the drink. and this time, he was not too happy that he had to miss school. i've got it drilled in his brain now how awful it is to have all of the make up work. backfired on me this today. he played a few different game boys as he got to the scratchy phase of the drink. and then got to the point where he felt like his eyes were sticking out. and luckily when he felt dizzy, he didn't feel like throwing up. he did really good. but didn't feel 100% like himself for a few hours after. we had to run to costco to pick up some prints. jen was there so we handed a couple prints off to her to photograph. then we went to target to get my rx for antibiotics filled. and max got to pick out a prize for doing good today. he had plans of getting a water balloon launcher, but as soon as he walked past the wii games, he changed his mind to the batman lego game. we had lunch at the bread store and jodie met up with us right after they brought out our sandwiches. it was a bit challenging to eat, since my mouth was still sore and wouldn't open very wide. we came home for just a few minutes before we had to go pick up madi, then drop madi off at silvestri and pick up kenzie. we came back at 4:30 to pick her and ally up. we had nothing the rest of the night. and it felt good.
FRI | 27 this morning i went and got myself a pretzel and ran into target to get stuff for a project. then came home and worked on the computer until it was time for school to get out. we dropped madi off at silvestri for cheer tryouts. and then patiently waited for the phone call to come pick her up. neither her or her friend, ally, made it. but somehow, brianna (from down the street) got in. the girls were not very happy. i took them to get mcflurries at mcdonalds and then we dropped ally and brianna off. shortly after, we left for cashman field. billy's class was singing the national anthem. we stayed for about 6 innings and then headed home.
