march madness

Annabelle is dealing with bronchitis AGAIN. I'm just as tired writing about it as I'm sure you are of hearing it. It's neeeever ending. I finally switched doctors because her initial doctor wasn't being proactive about getting to the root of the issue or sending her to an allergy/asthma doctor. Switching doctors caused me some guilt. I was afraid I'd hurt the doctors feelings by leaving. I wanted to send flowers and tell her it wasn't personal! She's lovely! Never looked down on me for my constant visits! Now I'm having second thoughts. Maybe I should go back. I call and reinstate AB as a patient tomorrow.

I had to make a plethora of phone calls to find the new doctor so I deserve a medal. Adulting is too hard. I think the best of both worlds is to be an adult with the responsibilities of a child. All the fun parts but none of the insurance hassles.
We had two men come over today and test the house for mold. We'll get results tomorrow, but when I asked if the man had any predictions he said, "well, it doesn't look too good." What a sunny outlook. When we spent much of last winter sick I joked that we were allergic to this state. Turns out, I might have been right. We might be allergic to our own house. 

Yesterday the doorbell rang while I was on the phone. I wasn't expecting someone and there wasn't a car in the driveway so naturally I assumed someone was there to murder us. I am truly an example of sunshine and optimism. It was the general manager from the restaurant next door asking for signatures. Normally I read everything carefully before I sign but this time I was distracted and didn't study the paper. I signed on the line and sent him on his way. For all I know I could have been agreeing to sell my liver. Christopher's too, since I also signed his name.

How could I possibly find anything more thrilling to talk about that mold and livers?

I was looking through pictures of Sesame the other day and came across my very favorite ultrasound picture. I loved her little nose in the ultrasound and I love it now.
I've been wanting to make a silhouette for years but never got around today. I paid someone $9 and she did all the work. I think it's precious.

The silhouette is gorgeous! Hope your daughter is lots better and hope you've been able to find out about the possible mold situation in your house. Crossing my fingers no mold was found.
