What She Wore: Black v-neck tee; blue jeans; royal blue, suede-like flip-flops; royal blue plastic bracelet from Tar-gay. I'm having a bit of an obsession with plastic jewelry these days.

What She Ate: Spaghetti and meatballs from The Peppermill. For dinner I'm having some manner of Lean Cuisine.

My thoughts are all over the place these days, so this blog is going to be extremely random.

Charlie is going to be fitted for AFO's to help him with balance while he practices standing and walking. These aren't covered by insurance, but luckily the state will pay for things like this if we get it through their program. We're also going to get soft knee braces to help him keep his legs straight while he sleeps. With braces on his knees, ankles, and hand the kid is going to look like robot-man. Maybe we should just put him in a full body cast?


We had lunch with the old high school friend. We punted on the whole Charlie situation and said nothing. Charlie played with his keys through lunch and then fell asleep. Someone who is very astute might have noticed that he doesn't really look at people very much, but the friend was very distracted by his own little ones. He is doing well, and is very much the same guy he's always been--very smart and working way too hard. He seemed interested in rekindling the friendship, so the Hub sent him an e-mail about Charlie on Monday. He took it in stride and said he hadn't noticed a thing. Now I'm just stressing about the politics of him and the other friend. Charlie's birthday is less than two months away and I don't need any fist-fights breaking out.


My mom came up with some prototypes for Charlie's birthday invitation. Here are some pictures. I'm going to go get some supplies tomorrow and start trying to get a final one done. I'm pretty sure we're going to go with the vertical card and the front is going to have something along the lines of "this little piggy went to market."

Gosh, I could go on and on like this, but I'll save some for tomorrow.
