Jonathan's on Day 6 of new meds. He seemed less groggy today but has too much spit in his mouth and drooled a bit today. Gross, I know. Especially when it happens in the car and there isn't a napkin or towel in the vehicle. Ick. I am hoping on Friday that they lowe the dosage of his anti-psyhotic. It scares me when I say "anti-psychotic" in relation to one of my children..but it's what he needs to function.
My hearing was a super curse today. I took the kids out for a nice lunch at a nice place. Two tables over, I witnessed (and heard) something I would have rathered not heard. The man, 40-ish, was trying to break it off with his buxom scantily clad mistress. She was NOT going quietly. She whined and pleaded and whined some more...Then Mr 40-something scumbag said, "We just have to cool things until the baby is born, ok? Then I'll leave her, I promise..." all the while smooching on the Gold Digger with fake boobs. It was disgusting. It really was. I asked the staff to move my children and I to another table so I wouldn't have to hear anymore.
I've had people as me, "Can you just turn it (my hearing) off?" Man, I wish I could. I think I would be a better person if I could. But I can't. Most people have a funnel, and they can filter out extraneous noise. I get it all at 100%. It's torturous. But it's part of me...I deal with it as best as I can.
I made someone's day today....My friend, Paige, is a MAJOR Jon Bon Jovi fan...He was "Oprah" today so I called Paige and she is still soaring from watching him. Love you, Paige!
I really REALLY want some chocolate today.
My family is freaky. We only have one TV. When I tell people that we only have 1 TV, they look at me like I have a third eye. I can keep track of what the kids watch. There's only been 2-3 times that I wished we'd had another TV. We have a strict rule: no TV's in bedrooms. Bedrooms are for sleeping. TV goes in the TV room....If we gave Jonathan his own TV, I don't think we'd ever see him again.
Tomorrow, I am going to start the tour of Balvanz Haus. Someone sent me an e-mail asking what my house looked like, so every few days I'll post a picture of what a specific room looks like. Of course, this WILL force me to clean up a bit....
