Nothing Got Done

Nothing got done today. I had a doctor's appointment at 1:30pm. You would think that we would have done some work this morning, but we didn't. We had to get the library stuff together. I neede a shower. Hubby took half the day off work, which means he was home by 10am. He needed a shower. The kids don't really school work done while he's home, it just seems almost impossible. We had to have lunch before we left. Plus, we had to leave with enough time to get to the other side of town. So, even though I was up at 7 something, this morning, nothing has been done. The kids watched some CNN Student News. That's it.

Today's appointment was with a pulmonary specialist. My asthma actally seems under control. However, she is concerned about the hoarse voice, the possible sleep apnea, the slightly elevated blood pressure, and the amount of weight I have gained over the last 8 years (and the fact that even though I have tried to lose the weight, I just gain more). So, I'm doing a sleep study to see if I have sleep apnea. She is also setting up an appointment for me to see an ENT (ear, nose, throat dr) to look at my sinuses and my voice box. Of course, I'll continue to do my best to lose the extra weight.

After the fun of my appointment, we headed out to do the shopping. We spent more time at the first store than I thoguht we would, but I remembered to get spray paint to finish the TARDIS. Then, hit the auto parts store, and finally the library. At the library, I ended up picking out a few more books for Jay than I planned (I went beyond the limit I set in place). Most of them are Chinese stories, myths, and legends, though. They didn't have a comprehensive book of them, in the kids' section, so we had to get several books. Next week (or the week after) I'll leave hubby with the kids & go look for a comprehensive book of Chinese Mythology. Hubby wasn't actually at the library with us today. He dropped us off & ran to another auto parts store while the kids & I got what we needed.

Since we didn't even get to the library until after 5pm(our usual dinner time), we stopped  and picked up dinner on the way home.  So, we got nothing done, ate dinner late, still need to do grocery shopping, and it has been a very looooooooooooooong day.
