It would be really REALLY nice if life would settle down and become normal....... but I am thinking THIS is my new normal!!
Yesterday morning the lil one woke up with swollen eyes and a rash around her mouth........ ALLERGY ALERT!! Because no one in this house has ever had allergies before... there were no meds to give her......... So.......... Sir Steve called the school told them the lil one would be late (if she showed up at all) and left for work. When the drugstore opened I took the lil one over to pick up some antihistamines ... dosed her in the car...... took her shopping with me to see if things improved or if she fell asleep on me.......... After about 40 minutes her face looked better and she hadn't fallen asleep -- but was fussing because she was missing school - so I drove her to school. Then I went and finished the shopping and running messages.
I had a project I wanted to do on the computer -- which took a couple of hours at least -- and then I tried to print it. Of course the printer refused to work ... and it took me another hour or so to sort it out... only to print one page of my project and have the printer shut down and tell me I needed more ink?!!!
Today is better -- but not by much.
The lil one woke up with swollen eyes again ....... so more meds and put her on the bus. I am stumped what could be causing this.... yesterday I thought it might have been the almonds in the salad we had for supper -- but I don't think she should have still been reacting today......
I am baking up a storm trying to get sweets baked and frozen to take us through the summer ....... and of course I picked a couple of new recipes -- and they're finicky -- not just mix and dump on cookie sheets ......... le sigh.
On the bright side -- I think we are gonna have a lesson in nature and birthing ..... this morning when I was outside I could hear this 'cooing' sound. But it wasn't a normal cooing -- it sounded stressed. So I started scanning the roof tops and wires.. couldn't see anything..........
Then a pigeon flew in and landed on the wires between our house and next door and was peering into the rain gutter.
Suddenly a head popped up.... Momma?? ....... she was making the weirdest cooing sounds I have heard... certainly sounded stressed... and her back was moving up and down like mad
I honestly don't know much about pigeons -- she could just be hungry or hurt.... but something tells me she's laying her eggs.......... we could have some new 'neighbours'..... now that will be fun!!
Life is good even when it's crazy .........
