Quiet afternoon, preparing for a trip to town.

It is quiet in here right now, except for the irritating electronic sound of the Thomas the Tank Engine theme song repeating over and over again on my ipod. Cody is watching videos on my iPod and as a result he is very quiet and content. The other two are sleeping. I wish I were sleeping. For some reason I feel very sleepy today. Perhaps it is partially due to the lack of sunshine today. It is cloudy and extremely windy, which makes it look quite cold outside. It probably is cold, but I have not been out yet.

As soon as Mike gets home today we will all be heading in to town. We have to go get Cody's glasses fixed again. Nobody bent them in half or popped a lens out this time. He just wore the little gel covers off his nose pads and now they leave major marks on his nose and they hurt him. While we are at it, I will be heading to the Christian book store to (finally) spend my gift certificate that I got for my birthday back in early September. I have a book on hold that I really want. It is called Whirlwind, and is written by Robert Liparulo. It is part of a series that is technically a youth series, but the guy is such a good writer that I am loving them. I have his adult books too and they are very good. He writes suspense. I think he has a new one of those coming out too, but I don't remember when. So, I'm excited about that. I hope to pick up something for my sister too, as it is her birthday on Saturday and a few of us girls are going out together. The question for me is, will Micah let that happen?

Micah took a bottle at about three months, and it was given as an experiment, not out of necessity. I keep a supply of milk in the freezer for him so that I can go out when I need to, or want to, or in case of emergency. He has been the most incredibly easy baby in that way, and the first time we ever offered him a bottle he devoured it happily with barely a second thought. That was even with me in sight. He has had a few chances since then to be left for an evening with Mike and has taken the bottle no problem. Then about a month and a half ago he went on strike and decided not to take the bottle anymore. I went out last night to get my hair done and it was supposed to be the dress rehearsal for Saturday, and wouldn't you know it, he still would not take the bottle. I'm a little bit upset about it, but Mike told me I should go anyway on Saturday and leave Micah behind. So, I guess I will. It is hard not to feel guilty though, leaving him knowing that he likely will refuse to eat.

Hm. I'm going to go do the dishes now and clean the kitchen. Unfortunately, I have a very sore eye right now, and I'm not sure whether I should be worried or not. I hate eye problems, and I have had a ton of them in the last year and a half. I'm not sure what to do now. Do I call and go in for that? Or do I wait to see if it gets better? Now I am feeling extremely stressed and discouraged. Will this never end??? I'm going to go. Maybe I'll have a fun update to give tomorrow.
