Kevin and I had a sad moment today. We were discussing how I was going to live with him and I told him I would stay until he got married. He started crying and touching all of his deformities, basically saying that he knows nobody will ever marry him or love him because of how he looks. Man, that was tough to watch him cry over. I did tell him that looks really don't matter, but he's not stupid - he knows that in today's society, they do. I also told him that things will look better once he has his plastic surgeries and that was the only thing that got him to stop crying, but hopefully he does realize that he still won't look perfect. I guess it's something I will have to make sure he is aware of, while somehow making him feel confident enough to go through with the surgeries. Aaack! Why does everything have to be so dang difficult?
On the surgical note, I have discussed plastic surgery with our FRC. We have decided to not have any type of surgery here in Tampa. I am planning to research for the best of the best and I am thinking it won't matter where they are located - Hollywood, NYC or Timbuktoo. This is something I have absolutely no knowledge of, but I guess it's time I do.
And now I am just going to answer some comments/questions:
Jodi - thanks for the link for sunsetter awnings. And say 'hi' to the family for us!
Holee et al - a screen around the pool is a given. There is a new way to keep the bugs out by just using a timed chemical release around your pool area, but I know we need to worry about pests and alligators (gosh - can you believe this PA girl has to worry about gators for goodness sake?!!) so we are going with the screen. It's all part of the pool package.
Lorraine (and Rick) - you guys just need to bring Howard the Duck to see us so he can swim in that pool, lol. Thanks for the pics too!
Kevin and Natali McKee - thanks for reminding me about the baby monitor! I actually bought one months ago when the hospital was trying to take away the sitters, but we never used it. I'm going to have to dig it out. Thanks so much!
And now I am going to sign off. I have some packing to do as I am trying to take the stuff we just don't use to my parent's place so that it's less to move when we have to leave the Fisher House. I sure hope Breezy gets working on it. She has to check out on Thursday night and I don't think she's packed a thing yet. Kids will be kids, right?
First 2 from the Nov kit!
