The Dreaded

Tomorrow is the day of my dreaded surgery that had to be rescheduled. In reality it’s so not a big deal - very minor. But still. It’s surgery. And I HATE hospitals. I actually didn’t realize how very much I hate hopitals until I had to go in for my pre-screening.
At least after tomorrow morning [...]

Nose Blow

What on earth is that crusty thing on the tip of the crayon? What the . . . oh, of course. A booger.
And when I look up, Robby is smiling at me and pointing to himself.
