And here she thought I was just being nice when I gave her the sucker.

BEHOLD! BECKY! )
aerdran: (Pout)
Well, today is Jason's 10th birthday and Becky's 24th. Preparations are being made to go to Roller Valley Roller Skating Rink later on for the party. Jason's extremely excited and well, so is Becky. She's just a big kid, you know. We just have to wait for John to get home after a 4:30 meeting so that we can go pick up presents, wrap them, and then go. He'd better not be late. All of thise has me deciding that Madison must age more slowly. I'm feeling old, and kids grow up toooooo fast.

I had a weird nasty pain earlier, too. I got up to use the bathroom and get some tea when my right shoulder started aching and cramping to the point that it was making me feel terribly nauseous. I went into the bedroom as quickly as I could to lie down, and it took a bit, but the pain went away. I don't know what the hell it was, but it left me still feeling a little queasy and off. I've been overusing the arm lately, and I guess it's complaining. I really don't want to see a doctor about it, because, like Mikel, I'm tired of doctors. I went to way more than enough back after my accident and I'd like to avoid them if at all possible. Hopefully the pain will not reoccur. I have so much still left to do, and I refuse to leave it all to other people. Becky won't be able to help after today because she's going to be spending most of July with her mom, lucky thing. I'd love to take a road trip with them since they're going through the Southwest, which is somewhere I've always wanted to go. Someday, maybe. Mike's been clinging to her since he won't be seeing her all that time, and since he's still not feeling well, he's clingier than usual. I'll just have to make sure he gets lots of cookies coming up. It's amazing how well they work to distract him, at least temporarily.

I'm getting the sneaking suspicion that Mikel is planning on skating when we go to Roller Valley. I'm just waiting for the nagging session from Amber. Of course, this will spur him on to do it, which, no matter how many times you tell her, doesn't stop her. She just can't help it. Those two are always interesting to watch together, I'll say that. He's sure she just wants to ruin his fun, and she's sure that he's defiant just to annoy her. Round and round she goes, where she stops, nobody knows. Don't you love vicious circles?

I knew Becky'd be the first to jump on the bandwagon. I know her so well!

What's great about Becky is, well, she's Becky. She's happy with the world and with herself, which is hard to come by these days. She's about as optimistic as they get, and her outlook on the world is far rosier than that of other people. That might sound like a handicap to some, but I think it's a beautiful thing. If more people were like her in that respect, it would be a much better world.

It doesn't matter what she's facing; Becky always seems to manage to come through it without losing her basic love of the world and humanity. This is partly due to the fact that she's a very stubborn person who will zealously defend her beliefs to whomever tries to bring her down. She doesn't like to get angry, and when she does, it's usually in defense of someone else. I've had her step up to the plate to defend me more than once, and I can't begin to say how much I appreciate it. It might not seem like it to people on here, but she can be like a wildcat once she gets her back up, and one of these days might just use those claws on someone. When she does, I have no doubt that it will be as she stands up for someone else, because that's just the kind of person she is. They say don't piss off the nice people, because you'll open a can of worms for which you're not prepared. That rings so true with Becky.

What else can I say about her but that I love her more than I can possibly express and that I'm honoured to have her as part of my family and part of my life. And hey, she's a great babysitter.

I have decided that Becky is weird. I don't know what she's on, but she's been sitting near me for the last hour and a half or so and acting really strange. She's acting like she gets when she's really tired, but she says she's not going to bed. Maybe I should kick Mike out and see if she tries to sleep. You people have no idea just how odd she can get. I'm considering consulting a doctor for her. After all, her grandmother was kind of nuts as she got older, and her dad is getting nuttier all the time. Perhaps it's hitting her early? She's just taking a different direction with it. She's going goofy instead of paranoid.

I've really gotten ahead on Christmas stuff. Today I got two packages in the mail full of stuff that I've ordered, and it feels good to know I don't have to rush for everything at the last minute. There's still quite a bit to go, but I'm way ahead of where I usually am. Yes, I am anxious for the Christmas season. I get that way. For some reason, it's stronger this year than most.

I get to go to the doctor again tomorrow, as it's started to become a weekly thing now. That means I can't sleep in too late. Poor me. Especially since I can't fall asleep very well these days and so I lie awake in bed trying to doze off. It hasn't worked very well thus far. That's probably partly because I am just so uncomfortable. It's tough to find a suitable position in which to sleep. I've also been getting really hot too, and it's been in the forties at night. I'm so hoping that this baby decides to hurry up and pop out. I'm ready anytime! She acts like she wants out, too. She does lots of pushing and hard kicking. She's just trying to figure out how to do it. Tomorrow I go pick up her crib and that will be nice to finally have here.

So yeah. That's it, I think. My tooth is hurting, though. I hope to get it dealt with sooooon. I hate toothaches. They totally suck.

Update time again. See how dependable I am?

To start with and just to warn y'all, Becky won't be on for a week at all. She's gone to her great grandmother's again to help out since Nana is not supposed to be alone, day or night. They're looking for an assisted living place for her, which is just going to break her heart since she'll have to sell the house she's had for many years. It's really sad. I hate to see it, but she falls all the time and can't get by on her own. Hopefully they'll find her a place in the next week or find someone else to stay with her because Becky will not be able to due to school starting for her. This could be that final straw for Nana, which makes me sad. She's a great lady and I hate to see her having such troubles.

On the Mikel front, well, he's Mikel. Apparently, before I got there he decided that he was going to get up and walk, doctor's orders be damned. He's going a bit stir crazy being stuck in bed all the time. It doesn't help that he's naturally hyper, er, energetic. He did manage a few steps before they stopped him, which prevented him from falling since he was not very steady on his feet and he was pretty short of breath. I expect many more incidents like this from now on. I'm sure that the nurses, doctors, orderlies, etc. are so looking forward to it. But there's no way in hell he's going to tolerate being strapped down, so they don't have that option. He can be very convincing about some things. I'm just hoping he doesn't push too hard and screw things up enough that he'll be stuck there longer than he would otherwise.

He did talk to the doctor about being out of there before Monday. Apparently, the doctor started to laugh until he saw that Mikel was serious. He strongly recommended against it, but I guess it's kind of like hitting your head against that proverbial brick wall. When he talked to Mikel's dad (his mom is now back home doing the court thing so there was no big scene. This time), he told him that if there was some way he, or someone, could talk Mikel out of this goal, it would be best. That was apparently Isaac's turn to laugh. I think the doctor got the point with that. He then gave recommmendations for what Mikel's supposed to do, eat, etc. when he's out. We'll see how far that goes.

So hopefully Mikel will do more recovering in the next week than is apparent from his current progress. It will be so much easier then. However, if not, I'm going to do my damndest to make sure that he does what he's supposed to do, even if I have to resort to nefarious and devious things. It's definitely going to be interesting, I'll say that. At least I have big strong men here to help me if he decides to get determined to walk around too much. I'm sure they'll be happy to do it. I'm also sure that Mike is glad he's not here a good part of the day due to school, now that I've said that. Hmm. Come to think of it, most of the guys won't be here for a few hours during the day. I hope Bait's up to this. At least Mikel won't be at full strength? Poor Bait. Maybe I can convince Cult to help. He could probably manage it better. He does like Mikel, after all.

Life with Mikel. Always an adventure.
