Your Travel Guide

Yikes it has been crazy at Casa Tangled. We didn't end up in the hospital much to my relief. This particular infection wasn't as severe as some of the others and the oral antibotics seem to have taken care of it. Little Man's hand remains somewhat swollen, but is no longer red and best of all, isn't getting any worse. Mommy Hawk is currently asleep with her head under her wing, ready to begin a new vigil at any time.
Having a medically fragile child is a rather like walking on the edge of a cliff in the dark. Sometimes you are closer to the edge than others. Sometimes you know you are close to the edge, other times you fall off without realizing how close you were. Falling off means ending up in Club Med.
Club Med: An expensive resort with really bad room service and NO chocolate on your pillow. In fact, you don't even really get a bed, just a stupid pull out chair that kills your back, plus their wake up service sucks since they do it about every 2-4 hours. No tears here for missing that little resort stay. We have been able to avoid it for just over a year, which is great, since the previous year we couldn't stay away more than 4 months at a time.
Yesterday Princess was in a singing competition at one of the local 4th celebrations. It was HOT, and Little Man was a beast. Screaming, crying, a bit of violence on his part. When Princess was done with the first round, we were outta there. Little Man did much better at home the rest of the day, and neither of his parents felt like committing mayhem on his little body after we got home. This is the first competition that Princess has ever lost, she was quite shocked, as any princess would be. What? They didn't chose me?
Brown Boy returned to Florida yesterday. Pygmy Child will be off to visit him the end of July. Their romance continues to flower and we like him very much. He is wound a little bit tight, but otherwise, he is a really sweet guy, who thinks the world of our daughter. He is a college grad, gainfully employed, good to his mom, same religion and he makes Pygmy Child smile. What's not to like?
Little Man is off to his summer program and mama is going to get some things done today. I have been driving on a donut tire for four days and Bald Man is really getting anxious about it. So first thing that will get done is new tires. Other things shall follow, like maybe a nap! Although all Bloggity Ones will note the most important thing happened first, blog update. I have got my priorities straight here peoples!

I'm assuming this comment on PygWife's blog was meant for me:
"Note: Advanced degrees from haughty schools do not intelligence make, going upscale in school is much more likely to show your income rather than your IQ. Want to compare IQ scores instead?"

In a poor effort to support Rachel, you only succeeded in showing your ignorance, or I should say, lack of IQ score!

Pygmalion's Wife said...

Yeah Jo, geez, let's not forget how broke mel is. She's reading this from a cardboard box under an overpass, on a computer made of popsicle sticks. At least until the feds find out and come take half, or she has to sell it all for groceries. I'm sure she had a full scholarship and didn't pay a dime for her education; after all only someone with a TRUE APTITUDE for business would end up in such dire financial straits. She sure put you in your place.

Congrats on your first snarky commenter, Jo! I'm not sure how your "poor effort to support" PygWif showed your "ignorance," but her declaration that it did so definitely showed hers. And to bother coming over here to call you out on it truly demonstrates a pathetically petty personality, as well as a waste of five minutes spent berating the one woman on the internet who doesn't have a mean word to say about anybody.
