What’s been Happening Our Way?

I know I haven’t been on top of updating this blog often but honestly since I started working it seems like my life has become super busy. What’s new right? Well since Olivia has been out of school for 1 week it seems like life has become more calmed down a bit. I still get her up early in the morning but she seems to be adjusting very well to the changes and even has been included in the field trips for daycare for the school aged kids. It’s nice for her because she wants so much to be apart of the older crowd and wants to keep up with what her friends are doing. And since she’s going to be in Kindergarten this year I think she’s ready to go on field trips. Today she went bowling and tomorrow she will be going roller skating. How much fun is that going to be for her? I do miss doing things with her but I’m glad that she is getting to have fun. This summer I have a feeling will be great!

We have also been dealing with her ears again. It seemed like last week she was yelling and screaming because she said she couldn’t hear anything. Finally on Friday night she started crying because it was hurting her so bad and so Saturday morning I contacted the pediatricians office and they got her in. Come to find out her left eardrum was severely swollen and red so bad to the point they have no idea if her tube is still in her ear or not. So they prescribed her some Amoxacillin (sp?) and said that should do the trick. Well here it is Thursday evening and it still hasn’t done the trick. I called the doctors office again today and they decided to call in a different medicine and add ear drops as well onto the daily regimen. So we’ll see how she does. If she is not better by Monday then we’ll have to call again and get her in by then. It’s just a little frustrating for her because I know how much she wants to feel better. This evening she talked to her daddy and asked for him to please pray for her ears to get better soon. She’s so tired of not feeling well. Plus we need for her to get better because we’re going on a mini-vacation next weekend. More about that later though. 🙂


Then I decided that I would sell my Blackberry Curve (you know the one I had to have) and instead purchase a new small camera. The Blackberry wasn’t really for me and plus I didn’t want to have a huge cell phone bill either. I like my little bill just fine. LOL. Well the one that I purchased was the Olympus Stylus 850 SW. It’s 8mp and it’s also Waterproof, shockproof, and freeze proof. How awesome is that? My cousin has a different model of this camera but absolutely loves it. So this way I can go down on the beach and to the pool and not have to worry about protecting my Canon Camera. Now I’m still going to take that camera but it’s only to take some pictures of my parents, Olivia and myself on the beach. 🙂 I’m so excited about getting the camera. Plus I paid under $200 for this camera because normally it would cost me around $250 for it. I got about $100 off the camera. 🙂 Yeah!!! I’m praying that I’ll have the camera before I leave for the beach next week. yes that’s where we’re going next weekend and we can’t wait either! Then the next Friday I’ll be hoping to go to Kings Dominion since I have that day off from work. It’s our holiday day for work. Yeah!

Nothing else has been happening. Just trying to stay calm and have fun and stay cool this summer. I can tell it’s going to be hot but fun hopefully!

  1. Hyland's makes an earache drop. I know the dr. can also prescribe a pain relieving drop. One thing that can help open the ears up so they can drain is drinking some hot chamomile tea with honey. If you get it sweet maybe she would drink it. The warmth helps open the ears and the honey has antibiotic properties. It probably won't work once an ear infection has REALLY set in but if you suspect she might be coming down with one it might work to prevent it from getting worse.
