Sometimes I feel like I shoulder all the whining in my house. Amanda whines about almost everything, from food, to toys, to not getting her way. I'm pretty sure that's typical for a 4 year old. Mike whines about a lot too. His arms hurt, his back hurts, this isn't what he wants for dinner... Kevin, well, he can't talk yet, but he sure finds ways to get upset at everything too.
So now it's my turn to whine.
I had LASIK surgery on January 6. In the months leading up to it, I was SO excited. I was going to get to ditch my contacts/glasses for good (which I've been wearing since I was 9!)! Well, we are now 3 weeks out, and my left eye is still blurry. It's progressively getting better, and the doc says it's due to dryness that should clear up, but it is still frustrating. I paid a lot of money to see clearly, and everyone assured me it was worth it, but now I'm starting to doubt that.
I also had a root canal on Monday. Yes, my first root canal. I'm not even sure I really needed it. I had no pain, but a filling fell out and the dentist claimed he couldn't put a new one in without hitting the nerve and getting it infected. So off I went to the root canal specialist. In general it's comparable to getting a filling. They numbed me up and I felt nothing during the procedure. Afterwards my jaw has been sore for 3 days now, but the tooth itself isn't painful at all. Just frustrating not to be able to open my jaw and eat big burgers and sandwiches!
And I have been sleeping terribly lately as well. Kevin has started waking up 2-3 times a night and crying until someone comes in and helps him find a pacifier. I want to ditch the pacifier (he'll be 18 months this week!), but he seems so much more dependent on it than Amanda was, so I am hesitating to do it. He moves up to the Infant III class next week and I think they don't allow pacifiers there (they sleep on mats, instead of in cribs), so hopefully that will help with the transition and we can ditch them in the next month or so.
On the plus side, as you can see from my below post, I got a new phone! A Droid. So much fun! It's amazing how much these things can do. I have spent countless hours downloading apps and playing with everything I can get my hands on. Tons different from my old phone which had the slowest mobile web known to man.
I also got the 'ok' from Mike to get a new zoom lens for my camera. I am actually thinking of waiting for a bit though. I am feeling lately like my photos just aren't great, and like 1 out of every 50 is really what I want it to be. So I'm thinking I might take a photography class first and then invest in some more lenses once I'm more comfortable using my camera the way I want to. The problem is finding one...
