Like Babyzilla. Who is into everything at 18 months. Who is currently precariously balanced standing behind me on the chair I am sitting in, looking over my shoulder. It's damn near impossible to get anything done with him around right now. He opens every drawer, climbs on every surface and is a general nuisance. But I do say that with love. Right now he's into cords, vacuums and the computer mouse. The other day I took my laptop upstairs to use away from him and he came running into my room with the mouse and mousepad because he knew they went with the missing computer. He has also figured out how to use a yardstick to knock the keys off the keyholder so he can
We are in the process of buying a house. It ended up being a bit more than we wanted to spend, but it will be ours. Will all solid surface floors so we don't have to worry about Babyzilla spilling on the carpet anymore. And we can invest in some high end appliances finally. I am not looking forward to another move in the August heat, our third. But anything has to be better than the last August move. But luckily, A will be home to take care of everything for me because...
A is going to be off work for 6-8 weeks waiting for the FAA to approve his medical. We have to go through this every two years- cancer testing, submitting paperwork and waiting. And waiting. On the FAA to get through their backlog. An unpaid vacation when we can afford it the least (well, really we can never afford it...). I was angry at A for this, feeling like he should have been more on top of the process and made more effort to hurry the Dr. appointments and paperwork along, but what's done is done at this point.
But in the grand scheme of things we are all doing well. Babyzilla is healthy and thriving. Kidzilla is healthy, thriving and enjoying his time with his dad in California (at least I think, I barely hear from him when he's out there...). I am doing well although still battling the "it wasn't supposed to be like this" blues on occasion. A is doing well and is happy he even has a job right now with all the changes and business developments in the aviation world.
