She did very well and the doctor told us that yes, she does have an ear infection, and wrote us a prescription for antibiotics. Oh-here's John and Eden with their balloons, having lots of fun!
So off we go, prescription in hand to fill it. By now it is about 11:30. We were right near the grocery store, and since they had a pharmacy and were also having a good sale on meat this week, why not go there? I mean, when you've got six energetic, rambunctious little ones, isn't the first place you want to go the grocery store? :-) Yes, I admit it, sometimes I don't think things through quite as well as I should. Since there was hardly anyone in the store, I'm thinking they'll have that thing filled in 15 minutes. Nope, the pharmacist tells me, 45 minutes. Okay..so we'll do lots of browsing around the store. We gathered up all the groceries, fed one very hungry baby Luke, and even did a potty break with everyone. While in line, the kids were putting up all the groceries and little Eden, my 2 yo, decided to make a break for it-where she was going, I don't know, but she went pretty fast down that cereal aisle! I'm sure I looked hilarious, telling my 8 yo to watch the baby in the cart while I went flying down the aisle after her. Lesson learned-always buckle the seatbelts in those little carts with the kiddie cars on them-they are way too easy to escape from! Finally, by 12:45, we were done, buckled in the car, and ready to go home and eat and have naps! Whew! I think I need one too!
With the exception of today, I have been able to make some progress on my organizing/cleaning out. I got a large part of our school shelves organized, though we still have many books to add. Aren't they looking pretty good? I have a label maker that I just love, so I've been labeling everything! It's nice to be more organized and know where everything goes.
I also discovered a new love for those over-the-door shoe holders. I have one on the back of several of the doors in our house-they're great for holding anything! Here's one on the back of the laundry room door off our kitchen, to hold our school supplies. It's so handy!
I love progress! Hopefully there will be more to come!
