It's spring.

Since I had the three crowns put in, I've had nerve pain in that side of my jaw every day. I have been taking ibuprofen for that, so I didn't realize that I was running a fever, due to whatever is irritating my throat, for a while. I called the doctor's office, since I'd gone in last Tuesday, and they called in an antibiotic for me
I had my yearly follow up with the ophthalmologist last Monday. My glasses are no longer correcting my strabismus, and there is no way to increase the prism in my lenses, so even though my prescription has changed a bit, he doesn't want me getting new lenses for the time being. Instead, I get to go see a specialist for an evaluation in July. Surprisingly, it will be with the same specialist who performed surgery on Bubby when he was two years old for his crossed eyes. This doctor gets to evaluate and decide what to do next, whether it's surgery, or try some other means of correcting my double vision.

Sean goes Wednesday to get his eyes dilated at the doctor, and Ayla gets to go Thursday for a filling at the dentist. Thankfully, Ayla hasn't had any bad experiences with the dentist or other doctors, so she's always excited to go to the doctor. She actually gets mad when I tell her it's mine turn to see a doctor, not hers.

Momma's gone with Grandma, who drove up from Oklahoma, to visit with family in Indiana.
I get to go over for a few days and keep an eye on McKey and grade her school work until Dad gets home in the evenings.

We had a tornado watch this morning, that was supposed to last till 7pm, but looking at the weather sites, it looks like that's removed. Hard to believe there was rain and hail earlier today, it's gorgeous outside now. The trees are finally starting to catch up with the fact that spring is here. 
Still waiting for more green leaves, but it's greener than it was a week ago. 

Soon, this mom won't be a stay at home mom anymore. I am currently in the processing of looking for a part time job. Waiting to hear back, and then moving on from there. Not exactly what I want to do, but it is a necessity currently.  Been enjoying getting out to walk when we can. We wwent last Friday with Ayla, Dani and her dogs.
I wasn't quite sure if Ayla was walking the dogs, or if they were walking her. Ayla had a blast, and we walked further than we did the first two times. 

Ayla and Dani even ran a little, racing to the next bench. Both dogs are well behaved (the black one tends to push her luck a bit) and for the most part, got to walk without their leashes on. Dani is definitely training any dogs we get. 

We had taken Ayla's bike along, but she didn't want to ride it when we started out....She asked when we were almost back to the car. I told we'd try again next time. I think I need to get her a new bike helmet, almost pulled the strap through trying to loosen it enough to buckle under her chin. 

Hope the weather's amazing where you are, and if it's not, I pray you stay safe.
