Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
I've gotten the "official" word. We're on spring break now. I kind of had a feeling that it would be super hard for ds to come indoors and sit for school stuff, when he can be out working hard making maple syrup! He is adorably cute out there with his grandpa...just melts my heart to look out and see him. He smells like a sweet wood fire, too. More kisses for momma, please He is definitely able to do a lot more hard work, and has already been left to tend the fire by himself while poppa tried to solve a crisis. (Thought the battery in the thermometer was dead...turns out the whole thermometer shorted out yesterday and is dead. Oops. My cheapo candy thermometer "isn't calibrated right" so it's still a crisis, but probably not one that can be solved today...I'm guessing he'll have to order a new precise one.) They still haven't rebuilt the fireplace yet...maybe today. The river is flooded and they're keeping an eye on the ice, which will probably go out sometime today or maybe tomorrow. That's always a big event of spring, LOL. (Viscosity is evidently the "big word of the day"...I've heard it used about 4x already this morning, LOL.)
DD's doctor's appointment went well yesterday. She's going to go on the pill for a bit because her periods are long (9 days) and heavy with lots of cramps (like, still cramping and heavy on day 5...eeks!) so hopefully that will help. I'm fine with it. Emotionally, she is doing well. The doctor isn't seeing any red flags at all, in talking with her. It's still a tough road to travel, but she's turned a few positive corners in the past couple of months and things look much more positive. I'm glad for that. You know, you do your best to make a "normal" life for your kid but you just never know what can come along and derail that normalcy. We got handed a huge load of stuff that isn't even our fault, but we still have to deal with it. I'm so thankful for the team of professionals along the way who have helped us in dealing with it.
