Running in quicksand.

Do you ever feel like you are running in quicksand? Trying to move fast and getting nowhere. That is how I felt this morning. Brianna and I didn't get much sleep last night. Her ears were hurting her. So it was a slow moving morning, but we had a lot to do. We had to run to the post office in (Silverwood) to pick up a package. I wanted to be there by 8 a.m, then be over to Joe and Jesse's in (Fostoria) to help with their garage sale by 8:30. We didn't even get out the door until 9 a.m. I called the Dr.'s office in (North Branch) to get Brianna an appointment this morning and they wanted us to be there at 10:15 a.m. Surprisingly we made it to the Drs office on time.

Brianna was quite the little negotiator at the Drs office. (Brianna has an outer ear infection in both ears)

Brianna: Can I still swim?

Dr. Wendy: I don't think you should go swimming for the next 4 days.

Brianna: What if I plug my ears, with ear plugs.

Dr. Wendy: That is a good idea for the future, when you are swimming. It's to late now though, Ear plugs will probably hurt your ears, now with the ear infection.

Brianna: What if I don't jump in the pool, I could use the steps and go in nicely.

Dr. Wendy: I will make you a deal, you can go in the pool, if you do the doggy paddle and keep your head above the water. You can't jump or dive and your ears must stay above the water, no going under.

Brianna: Okay :)!

Here is picture of her in the pool this afternoon.




No jumping, no diving, no going under the water equals no fun. My poor little fish.
