We are all having FUN, with a few minor setbacks. Our mosquitos just love Kate and Braeden. Huge and very very itchy and finally got some over the counter cortizone cream as the old home remedies just weren't helping.
Another giant stress are the adults' prescriptions. They dutifully had their Dr visit where they received paper scripts to bring and fill here. Since the meds are the kind you have to sign for, pharmacies will not fill out of state meds!! They went to a local Dr to explain the problem and he could not write them AND told them that this is the most common situation he sees (very close to Costco pharmacy).
Kate got up at 5am on Monday to talk to her Dr. and he suggested that she get someone to in to buy and pick up for her then ship them via Fed Ex. Of course all of her friends work so I contacted my former neighbor (who had to do this for my Ambien for a few months until I found a Dr. on Maui). She volunteered her daughter and after much running around, said package should arrive this afternoon. Just in the nick of time.
The dishwasher was delivered and installed on Monday and what a relief that is! I forgot how often children (and their parents) eat.
A few more things I had forgotten:
Frequent wrestling matches
(Until someone gets hurt and cries or draws blood)
Cars seats and booster seats
How exciting it is to pick your own souvenir
Wonderful sound of "I just want Gramma"
How sand multiplies inside the car or house
How long it takes to put sunscreen on five people
How much water and snacks and diapers and changes of clothes go into every trip in the car
How we all order a meal that can be shared with kids of differing tastes
I just want to chill with Gramma
We have to work around naptime ....
