I've got nothing for you ...
Seriously.No interesting topic for discussion.(don't EVEN get me started on Tiger!)No exciting little tid bit to share.Nothing.And you know,I kind of like it.And I kind of hate it.Makes me feel a bit too,well, comfy and normal and with Zoey's first blood draw in 2 months, happening Monday,I really shouldn't be getting so cozy.I remember in October,at her last clinic visit,her doctor saying,"See you right before Christmas."And I ... almost choked.In my mind I was thinking ..."No not before Christmas,please."No sense in voicing the superstitious thoughts floating around in my head at that exact moment to her doctor,as he never would have understood.He is a black and white,highly intelligent guy, who would brush off the ill timing,at least ill timing from my vantage point,as his feeling would be and are,that things will be what things will be.And I know that.A t least in the logical portion of my brain I know that, but in my not so normal thinking portion, right before Christmas seemed like the absolute worst timing.But off we will go come Monday.Me,Miss Zoey and possibly a little dose of Xanax.Can't hurt and definitely,defintely might help.
Quick,funny Joe story:The boys have been watching a lot of Christmas movies lately.The other day they had finished watching "Santa Claus is Coming to Town".They were playing and Zoey was totally into rolling around and following them around the house.Joe decides that Zoey will be the baby left at the Kringle's door step and proceeds to read the "note" left for whoever finds the baby.It reads:"Here is your cute baby.She doesn't eat by mouth.She eats by G-Tube.Hope you know what a G-tube is."PS.PS."She doesn't like mashed chocolate" So funny my little Joe.
The pictures:Jess was studying for her Micro-Biology final.Matt was pouring over his Thomas Guide and learning the lay of the land in Ingelwood and surrounding areas,where he is an EMT and Zoey was pathetically going between the two,looking for love.Jessica finally picked her up and was reading to her in a cute,children's book reading type voice but the things coming out were words such as "parasites,fungus" etc. and a plethora of other terms that I could not even pronounce, let alone spell.Zoey thought it was a crack up.She could have cared less about the words,she was in heaven just listening and sitting there with her big sister.Side note would be how absolutely proud I am of Matt and Jess.They have not stopped since graduating from Pepperdine in May.Not skipped one beat since finishing a rigorous 4 year education ,only to jump right back into the fire.They are focused and determined and their work ethic is unparalleled.The nursing and firefighter professions will be lucky to get these two, that is for sure.
