Pitter Patter On The Roof

Normally when it rains I'm able to fall right to sleep and rest peacefully. For some reason that's not working today. Hopefully my meds will kick in and I can get some sleep here soon.

It's going to be pretty busy for the next 10 days starting with tomorrow. I have an appointment to have my gums scraped at 7:00am so I can get two teeth capped off with crowns. Lucky me huh? On top of that I need to prepare my house and get ready for my son Perrin's surgery this coming Thursday. He's going to be admitted Wednesday night, so I figure I'll be staying with him at the hospital for at least 2 or 3 straight nights while he recovers. I'm very lucky that my wife's parents will be coming to help out and watch the other two kids while my wife and I take turns at the hospital staying with Perrin. I don't mind admitting that it all scares the hell out of me and I am having trouble sleeping or staying focused on much of anything right now. I can't wait for this to be over and to have Perrin home with us back were he feels safe and happy.

I think the anticipation of this has caused me to have migraines for most of the week. They've been the normal batch of nastiness that I've become used to which caused me to cancel several things this week and mostly just hide out in the house like a injured bear. At least I have the oral surgery in the morning to look forward to!

I don't know if I mentioned it before, but the Triplets turned two recently. We had a great party with wonderful friends and family of all kinds dropping by and sharing that time with us. I plan to get some of the pictures of that day up on the Triplet Blog sometime this weekend. We also had one of our triplet friends take their pictures to mark their second year. The pictures were fantastic, which is unbelievable given that the kids were really pretty crabby for the most part. Our photographer Amanda even put two pictures off that session up on her blog to show off he work. The picture you see above is from her website of me kissing Perrin in black and white. You can visit her blog and see another nice one of all three of the kids together.

I've also started to go through my comics and get them ready to be sold on eBay. It's early yet and I've only touched a fraction of what I intend to put up, but I have to start somewhere. I'll let ya know as soon as that happen.

And before I go, I just want you all to make sure you don't let Jesse Jackson "cut your nuts off!!"
