• Summer Nanny

    I finally hired a summer nanny! She is coming over tomorrow for me to show her around, get to know the girls better, discuss the schedule going forward, etc. I’m excited, but really anxious too. I’m always anxious about leaving the girls. She wanted full-time hours, but I don’t need full-time, being I’m home most of the time. I have a lot of projects I want to get done around…

I’m going to skip it today, and I guess email her doctor…

  • No Better

    I know it’s only been one day off the Singular, but Nadia doesn’t seem any better… She is still saying she feels wet, pupils are large, not really wanting to eat a lot, has really weird stringy thin poop… There is a clinic in Minneapolis, MN that specializes in complicated medication issues, Newbridge Wellness. Months ago I must have submitted some information about Nadia and asked to be contacted. Well,…
