In what may be my favorite ever would-be pick up line (if it weren’t said by a three year old), my little cutie nephew told a young female respiratory therapist this week that she “smelled like rainbows.”
Seriously — that kid is going to be slick. But, in the mean time, lots of prayers going out to G, who has been in the hospital for asthma and breathing related issues since Monday and is still looking at probably a few more days there. Poor little guy.
(On a side note: He’s my brownies. I know, that is poor grammar. But, one day, I said I was hungry for brownies and proceeded to pick him up and gobble on him all around his stomach and lower back. He laughed and laughed. He will now often ask me, “Where’s your brownies?” or tell me “Here’s your brownies” while lifting his shirt to show his tummy. Cute kid, huh?)

Speaking of the hospital, my nephew arrived at the hospital just a few hours after Molly was released after her oral surgery.
I have realized this week that we had it really easy with Noah’s five tooth removal earlier in the month. It’s much harder work and recover when you actually have to go into the gums to grab out a tooth. I know that I posted about this on Monday night, but thought I should update.
Molly is doing much better as the week has progressed and even spent two afternoons at friends houses, as well as going to her ballet class. By Thursday, the swelling finally really started coming down and it didn’t hurt her to smile anymore. (It was hard to look at her with part of her face puffy and a constant frown on her face. It just wasn’t her.) By early next week, she’ll be off any restrictions and hopefully the stitches will fall out/desolve/do whatever they’re supposed to do to leave.

The aftermath of surgery is still on the horizon, however. There was a lot of disagreements over what medical insurance would pay, what dental insurance would pay, and what neither wanted to pay for. We’re just praying that most of it gets paid for, as that’s how it sounded like it would finally be. However, I’m also bracing myself for bills that are higher than we want. (So, you know, feel free to use my Amazon affiliate or buy from my shop or have me design something for you or the like, okay? No pressure.)

Ahhh….Friday Lenten lunch…
Except, I thought the imitation crab (which is made of fish) was way too fishy, for some reason. So, in the half that were California Rolls (as opposed to the half that were Veggie Rolls), I pushed the “crab” out the other end and left it on my plate.
I’m trying to expand my horizons beyond having things like tuna sandwiches, grilled cheese, and cheese pizza. (This isn’t the first time I’ve had sushi though, but just the first time I thought, “Hey — that would make a good Lenten meal.)

In all the times that I’ve tried a variety of types of sushi, I have only once had it with raw seafood. It was okay, but I’ve not sought it out again. It makes me kind of squeamish.

I got an iPad about two years ago. This also means that for the better part of those two years, I have waxed and waned about getting an iPad keyboard. At times, I have obsessively poured over whether I should get one. It’s really kind of silly, except that they’re not cheap. But, every time, when push comes to shove, I don’t get one.
Last week, however, I did splurge and get a stylus for it, which my family has fallen in love with, especially since we’ve been playing with the app SketchBook Pro (which is amazing!).
I got this one (all the pictures are clickable):
My friend Rob recommends this one:
Oh, and the hubby? He finally got tired of all the times that I just wanted to type something and could have done it with a keyboard for the iPad and the Pages app, but instead had to lug my laptop somewhere. So, last night, he and the boys went out and surprised me with this…
(It is actually pretty slick. I dig it. I’m glad Eric just finally put an end to my “should I or shouldn’t I.”)

I know that I have lots of readers that are also Big Bang Theory fans. Oh my goodness – last night’s episode was too, too funny. Seriously. Between Sheldon’s bongos (“Wherever the music takes me, Kitten.”) and his bongo song and then Howard’s tales of astronaut training while talking to Bernadette, I almost cried.
