Today was a nice Sunday. It started out with me, the birds, and hot coffee, a very effective combination. Jenn had two choirs singing today so she left early. Ethan and I tagged along a little later. We were a few minutes late, so there was no parking in the lower lot of McChurch. So we settled for the upper lot. I was late and sat in the back. Going to church of late feels a bit like doing time…not in the prison sense…just in the “I wish I were anywhere else but here sense.” The pastor engaged me in conversation after the service, which is no small feat in a church of our size. I think he honest wanted to know how I was doing. I just blew him off. No point his ruining his day.
Ethan and I went to my favorite comfort food restaurant, Amphora. Jenn met up with us shortly after we ordered.
I got home and had planned to go walking, but my walking buddy was taking a nap. That sounded like a splendid idea, so I took one too.
It is finally feeling like spring around here. So after I woke up and gave Ethan the E treatement, I went to Walmart to buy grass seed.
The rest of my afternoon was spent with the family working out in the yard. I over seeded the lawn, raked some leaves and tried to keep Ethan out of the mulch. I was successful at two of those things.
It is now Sunday night and for the most part I am relaxed, just in time to start the rat race to begin again.
This week will only be a four day work week for me. Friday we are taking Ethan to The Johns Hopkins Hospital for what is called a food challenge. His allergy numbers for milk are low enough that in theory he can now eat dairy. But they want us to try it in a controlled environment. We are suppose to bring chocolate milk and ice cream for him to try. I guess if he does not break out in hives, they will certify him as not allergic to milk. I have my fingers crossed. This could potentially open up a lot of foods to Ethan. His only remaining food allergens would be peanuts and eggs.
Saturday we are flying to Colorado to visit my parents. Guilt-a-palooza ’07 should be a wonderful time. It will be nice to see my sister and nephew.
Well that is about it for now. Virtual hugs to all.
