We made it back from Atlanta, with only 30 minutes of screaming on the airplane. I was happy she slept for the first 2 hours, but could that have something to do with the Benadyrl she sucked down before we boarded? Add that to the list of things you never thought you'd do...like today when I licked some sticky substance from Lucy's cheek because I knew if I came towards her with a wet wash cloth she'd scream and she was in such a good mood I didn't want to ruin our blissful afternoon. Back to the Benadryl...she does seem to have horrible allergies and the doctor told me to do it, so don't freak on me just yet.
I've been withholding a very important update, because the ramifications are huge. It could change everything...it has changed everything. Best to just come out with it. I can't drink coffee anymore. Or soda. Or consume chocolate. Well, I could, but I'd have a horrible gut ache and I'd feel like someone was stabbing me in the back. Seems the days of an iron stomach and tasty beverages are over. And the irony of it all, is I just inherited a wireless laptop. You know, wireless laptop = hanging out at cool coffee shops with Lucy and, consuming caffeine. I've been off the stuff for 2 weeks now, and that gallbladder that I was sure needed to be removed hasn't bothered me once. Oh, except when I ate that fire hot burrito last night and feel asleep with a bottle of tums in my hand. I'm hoping this is only temporary and I'll be back on the sauce soon. In the meantime, I guess you'll find me and Lucy at the park. She loves those swings!
