Gotta Love the Kids Shows

OK so kids shows are great when you want them to learn something or just keep them occupied while you take care of daily task. That I’ll admit but there comes a point when they can get to be a bit annoying. How many times have you found yourself watching the same cartoon a hundred times over just because your child is being good? Too many to count unless like my friend Annie you have gotten rid of the television and found the more peaceful side of life. folded one load of laundry and washed two today. I hung one outside to dry and just brought it in a little while ago. I have yet to fold it and put it away, I still don’t feel well. The other load is in the back bedroom waiting to dry. I’ll have a load of Theresa’s cloth training pants to wash in the tomorrow night. I’ll actually have all of them in the wash at once so she’ll be in a pull-up for a little while. I plan to buy her some more plastic pants and cloth training pants as soon as I get enough Amazon gift cards. That way I can have enough to keep her in them most of the week, they help with getting her to sit on the potty and I don’t forget as much as when she’s in a disposable pull-up. The dirty ones soak in a five gallon bucket until I dump them into the washing machine and spin out the water. What? I rinse them before I soak them, then I spin them out and let them soak in the washing machine before washing them in hot water.

Thursday is thanksgiving so she may or may not be in Marianna. Her grandparents were taking her father out to eat but now they’re going to spend the holiday with family. Someone else is cooking so they’re going out there. That’s a bit of a long way and will leave me without a way to go since I have no brakes on my truck and hubby wants to leave when he gets ready. Although I’m a bit confused since he plans to leave his car at his father’s house. I took a drive down there with them once, I’ll never do it again. I can not stomach listening to instrumentals for so many miles again., today was rather uneventful except for learning that I didn’t put a high enough soap concentration in my laundry soap when I made it. I used one bar instead of two, that would explain why I’ve had to use two to three cups to get the wash clean. Well, it’s time to work now so I’ll call it a day.

This family is getting expensive

Well, tomorrow Theresa gets her B-12 shot. I had a talk with the Kelly today about the fact that she’s getting increasingly violent trying not to get the shot and she told me we could cut back to once a week with it since I don’t want her off of it yet. She’s making fast progress with it. Kelly told me there is a nasal spray that doesn’t work as well and is a lot more expensive. I’ll have to wait a bit to change her over. Tomorrow we add two new supplements to help her progress; approximately $13. I still haven’t gotten the $8 bottle of zinc or the $38 bottle of fish oil replaced. Nice timing huh?

Hubby’s blood pressure was sky high last night. I’ve got to get his stubborn ass back to the doctor but it’s a waste of money when he won’t do what he’s supposed to. He quit drinking so his medicine is more effective when he takes it correctly. I was looking for something on his counter last night and found a prescription from 2007 that’s still half full.

I have an appointment to follow up on my eye the 12th at 7:40 in the morning. The doctor told me I could cancel it if my eye felt back to normal. So far it’s not quite there, my vision is blurry I”m hoping it’s just my bad vision and the fact that I’m wearing the wrong prescription. I think I’ll get myself new glasses and brakes for my birthday. I’ve needed brakes on my truck for a while but my darling hubby doesn’t know any better when it comes to being able to stop. He thinks it’s supposed to take forever.

I did a load of towels today when we got back from morning therapy. I hand wash the shirt I want to wear tomorrow and a couple of Theresa’s night gowns because she needs them and there isn’t enough laundry to justify doing another load. I still need to buy her some more plastic pants to cover her training pants and keep her from getting accidents on the floor. Somehow I have ten pair with plastic pants. Why don’t they just sell them together? The stupid packs aren’t even when you buy them separately.

I can make my dish detergent or use a few slivers of Zote. I like the Zote but it’s a delicate wash and to use it for stain removal you have to soften the bar and let it sit on the stain. That’s a pain in the butt, the Colgate soap makes me nauseas but you can rub it directly on the stain before you put it in the wash. I can’t find Fels Napa or Washing Soda here. The PH increaser is rather expensive and oxi-clean causes foaming.

Now I’m rambling and can’t remember what I was saying. I just know that I’m taking back over the baby’s shopping. Of course today she kept insisting on a cookie but we didn’t have any. She didn’t actually want a cookie, she calls rice cakes cookies. Theresa actually likes plain rice cakes, she’ll be a lot healthier than I am now in another thirty years.

Good night all.
