Sam was on a business trip the past couple days. He left Sunday afternoon and came home last night. Yesterday was his bday, so Scoots and I called him yesterday morning and left a little "Happy Bday, we miss you" message on his voicemail. I ordered one of those huge cookie cakes from the Great American Cookie Company, instead of a bday cake. He loved it- even said, "Much better than birthday cake!" Which coming from Sam, who LOVES bday cake, is really saying something!
Scooter hasn't been feeling good the past few days- he was running a fever on Saturday/Sunday. That has gone away, but has also been complaining about and even crying about stomach pain- more specifically, right side pain. I try to get him to point exactly where it hurts, but he can't seem to. I'm bringing him in to work today to get adjusted- he apparently complained of a headache at preschool yesterday- and then taking him to the pediatrician to see if something else is going on. Keeping my fingers crossed that nothing serious is going on.
Yesterday was an interesting day at work. My doctor (Dr. W) is involved in a grant through the NIH (Nat'l Institute of Health) about TMJ work and using chiropractic to help with that. So we had a meeting with the other people involved. Dr. W was pretty worked up about it, and just overcome that he is a part of such a big study for chiropractic. Research for chiropractic didn't really exist 20 years ago, and now the NIH is funding grants to study how it works.
Well, city wide garage sales are coming up this weekend in Coralville. My mom is coming up, I think, and we'll hit some sales. With buying our new house in June, I'm looking for a couple things. Our current dining room table will not work in the new kitchen, so Sam is looking to make a new kitchen table. I have a higher table- what do they call it, a pub table? DH has something very specific in mind and was trying to draw pictures to show me. I just wasn't getting the picture...we were at KMart the other day and happened by the "furniture" department and we both saw it at the same time. A high top table that was almost exactly what we both had in mind- it was beautiful, but it was the wrong color...plus it didn't seem all that sturdy. But at least I know what he's talking about now, and I approve!!
