THIS is why I have headaches!!

So, after 2 days of calling the surgeon, I was informed today that he is ON VACATION THIS WEEK!!! Something they could have just told me YESTERDAY!! I am so mad I could (and did) cry! Now on to the appeal process with Cigna to see if we can get the procedure covered after October 1st. Thanks to everyone for all the good 'em until further notice!

More surgery...

Yep. More surgery for Hannah. Hopefully she will have a lens inserted on Friday that will permanently replace the lens that had to be removed due to the cataract. We tried to use a contact lens to correct her vision, but she was, let us say, not receptive. We've been trying for almost a month to get her to do it, but she just can't/won't. The surgery is a last resort, but should restore her vision to a 'normal' level. Why the rush to have the surgery you ask? The hospital where her procedures are performed will no longer be participating in our insurance network as of October 1st. We've applied for an extension, but if we can just get it done before the cutoff we'll be in that much better shape.
So, once again, we'll be off early Friday morning and home that afternoon. Hopefully this will be the last of the surgeries.

One of the best things about triplet 8 year olds is...

SLEEPOVERS!! This weekend the girls were invited to a sleepover. From 5:30 pm until 11 am we were childless. I have to say, it was a bit strange sleeping in a house with no children. I think that has happened here only 1 or 2 other times! When we got up in the morning Stan offered to go get donuts and I had to remind him we could BOTH go...there were no kids here that needed to be supervised!! Whooooo hooooo! I think I could get used to that....

Happy birthday to me, I'm a hundred and three...

At least I feel that old! I can't believe I'm 38. 38. It just sounds ancient. I don't feel 38, but all the evidence is there:
1. Grey hair -- it's coming in at an alarming pace. Thank goodness for haircolor!
2. Aches and pains -- I still haven't recovered from our trip to Great America. There is a spot in my back that may never be the same!
3. I have three children!! Three EIGHT year olds -- where did the time go??

I can't believe I'm a full fledged adult, let alone a 38 year old. Is this what they call a mid-life crisis??
