Yet again...

I'm trying to play catch up with my posting. Since we returned from Florida I've been feeling like cr@p thinking that I may have had another kidney stone. Up until today I haven't been able to eat anything and though I've been forcing fluids these past six days it's caused me great pain to get them in. It wasn't until yesterday that I could get in to see the urologist and after numerous tests and lots of poking and prodding it was determined that I have a kidney and intestinal infection so now I'm on Cipro and Flagyl as well as some major pain meds for when I need it and thankfully today I'm feeling somewhat better.

Today Maisie and I were running around all morning before her gymnastics practice so we stopped for lunch at Evos which recently opened near us. The two of us shared a burger and air fries with Maisie eating about 3/4 of the meal and my stomach just hurting. When I thought about it, I think this may have been Maisie's first ever burger! I've heard good things about Evos but honestly I was totally unimpressed and didn't think that anything tasted all that great but of course it could be the meds messing around with my taste buds. Still, we won't be heading back anytime soon if ever.

Our week has been busy with the usual gymnastics camp & practices as well as a bit of time with friends. Maisie impressed the heck out of her coaches this week as a couple of times she pulled off perfect, unassisted back hip circles on the bar. I'm going to try and get a video of her doing them but lately even when she asks to have her piccie taken she tends to be uncooperative. I was also told that she did something really well on the vault too but I don't remember what it was but I guess it was really good as her coach made a point to tell me about it.

Maisie and I leave on Tuesday for Boston so this weekend I'll be getting the house cleaned up and packing. It's supposed to be close to 100F tomorrow and almost as hot over the weekend so maybe staying in and doing things in the comfort of the a/c will be a good idea. Well here's what you come to the blog for, piccies from our week.

This past weekend we got our first harvest from our garden. One summer squash and some lovely basil. Though not a bountiful harvest...yet... Maisie was thrilled to pick these items.
Monday morning Maisie was all ready for gymnastics camp and as I was taking a piccie of her bento and she asked to have her picture taken. She wanted her picture why was she filled with attitude and so uncooperative? I'm hoping it's just a three year old thing and that it will pass...and quickly!
When we were in Florida Maisie asked my Mom to paint her finger & toe nails which my Mom did much to Maisie's delight. BUT...Maisie wanted sparkly polish so since Tuesday morning was free for us, we went out and she picked out some totally sparkly pink glitter polish and I painted her nails. Here she is with my iPhone set as a timer patiently waiting for the polish to dry.

Finally here's Maisie Tuesday afternoon ready for gymnastics practice, being much more cooperative and totally adorable.

  6. Maisie looks so adorable with her hair up like that! Too cute!
    Rachel does the uncooperative thing, too... I think it is a 3- and 4-year-old thing. I hope you feel better soon!

  7. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. Hope they're able to figure out what is causing this. Have heard the pain is awful. Praying for you.

    Pics of Maisie are adorable. Would be neat if you could capture some of her gymnastics accomplishments on video.

  8. Oh Lisa - I'm so sorry you are sick again. I hope you are feeling much better for your next trip.

    Hope Eammon has a Happy Father's Day!

  9. Garden goods and glitter nails. What more could you want. I can't believe you are getting garden stuff already. We are still at the stage we are hoping things will just grow. See you soon!!!!
