Today Superman and I went to counseling. I don't even know how stuff came to light (it seemed like such a little thing I mentioned in passing; never thought twice about it before) but there was an unbelievable breakthrough regarding why I am the way I am, or at least a HUGE contributing factor. So much makes SO MUCH MORE sense now. The underlying current of anxiety that has been nagging at me for the past 2-3 weeks is gone. I hope it stays gone. I was getting tired of it anyhow. =)

I'm so glad Superman was there because there is no way I'd be able to explain the enormity of what occurred.

Obviously I won't go into detail here but it was such a momentous occurrence I wanted to make note of it for myself.


So we arrive home and I find out that my very own dear mother gave my very own dear daughter a SEE'S CANDIES BORDEAUX just for using the bathroom. My mother. Gave. My daughter. A. BORDEAUX. Do you people know my mother? (You should.) My mother, the one who is adamant about the dangers/evils of processed foods and insistent regarding the consumption of vegetables. That one.

And now she's dropping Bordeauxs right and left? Where was this lady when *I* was successfully using the potty?!?

Good grief. They say that becoming a grandparent changes everything - I guess SO!


Elaine is back on the amoxicillin. She developed a rash, which did not respond to Benadryl, so I got the doctor's OK to continue on with the antibiotic and hopefully the rash will disappear in a few days. It's never seemed to bother her, so that's good. Apparently it's just a viral response to the amoxicillin. Very glad it wasn't serious.



  1. Becky, That was not fair!!! I am at work and I have not logged onto your blog for quite some time due to lack of time and all of a sudden I got the urge and then unfortunately I read this and laughed OUT LOUD which is NOT cool! I absolutely can NOT imagine your mother, my friend Lois, giving ANY child See's candy but then again I have to say from experience, I know that being a grandparent is kind of like falling and knocking your head on a rock and you are NEVER the same again. Tee-Hee-Hee!!

  2. LOL! Yes, I remember your mother... we visited you once, and when we came in from playing in the backyard we got carrot sticks for a snack. We were 10ish I believe, but I remember thinking you were unjustly deprived! - at least when it came to snacks.. I also thought your mom had the funnest science projects and school books.

  3. Hallelujah for breakthroughs!!!!! WOOHOO!As for the Bordeaux, at least she went for quality chocolate (at least I guess it is??) rather than drug store M&Ms. ;)Viral response to amoxicillin?? Well, glad it's not serious, but it still seems weird;).
