|Internet at home

You would think that since we've had the internet at home for a few weeks now I would have updated more often, but no I've been a tart and just been looking at communities. I am updating now so I will try to remember what I can. |
Kyle has bronchitis, he had to go to the emergency room to find this out. I just have a cold and thankfully it's a barely there cold. I haven't taken any medicine for two days and I still feel fine. Kyle is on a course of antibiotics and steroids.
Linda and I still have baby shower plans to make. We just haven't got together to do more, but we will this weekend...hopefully. As of now the shower is going to be at my mother's house as Linda's house is in a state of upheaval (renovations). I was quite surprised when Linda mentioned actually using my mother's house, I didn't think she'd go for it. I know how much she wants to have it at her place. Her house is just not going to be ready in time, so my mom's is the next best thing (esp if you don't wanna pay to use the community center). This is my first party planning and I hope it goes well. The next baby shower I plan will hopefully/probably be my own, as I am that type of person and wouldn't want to leave all the planning to other people.
Lisa is in the hospital with an infection...in her HEAD. Normally the doctors would cut it open and let the thing drain but as I stated the infection is in her head. Lisa......what to say.......I feel and I could be totally wrong here that she's not taking her "condition" seriously enough. I know she got the Medicare taken care of but....1. she keeps referring to it as her "condition" rather than a pregnancy. 2. doesn't seem like she knows what she'll do afterwards, work, be home and if she works what she'll do about care for the baby 3. the fact that this WILL tie her to Rafe for about the next 2 decades. 4. still smoking, using the excuse that she needs to see if there is a medication that's safe to take. Considering how long it was before she found out she was pregnant you'd think she would at least give cold turkey a shot for the health of her child. 5. still has not told her mom, granted she lives with her and she doesn't want grief, advice, nothing from her I kind of understand, but I still say "You're 32 and hiding your pregnancy from your mom." 6. she's acting like she got a long time before she needs to concern herself with getting ready (for childbirth, getting clothes), I mean she's got till April but I think that the time might pass before she knows it.......I could just be overly concerned and maybe everything will work out without a hitch. Maybe things look off to me because if I were pregnant I imagine my experience to be completely different.
Isaac is not going to kindergarten, he's being home schooled. Kyle and I told Carissa that we think he should be in regular school but that seemed to fall on deaf ears. I believe Carissa had her mind made up when she mentioned the "possibility" of home schooling Isaac. She has said that he had a few behavioral problems in Pre-K, namely wanting to be the center of attention, showing off for his classmates. Kyle and I don't understand how homeschooling is supposed to help, especially with the attention thing. He wants to be the center of attention and homeschooling will just give him that. How is he supposed to learn to be part of a class if he stays home and gets to be the star? How is he going to learn to listen to his teacher at school if he stays home with Mom and you know it easier to act up at home because a teacher would not put up with the same stuff Mom will.
I'm still babysitting at home and I still love it. It's so unbelievable that I've had Mariska in my care for so long. I love getting to see her grow from a baby to a toddler. Plus she's so used to me that we get along great like she's my little niece or something.
