This morning my four year old had his first appointment with an allergist/immunologist to start the process of determining whether he has allergies, asthma or both. The doctor ordered some blood tests at the local medical lab. Let’s just say that the med lab staff probably won’t forget us anytime soon. I imagine we were quite a site with my baby crying, the four year old trying to get away and crying, and five adults trying to hold him still and draw his blood. They drew a little extra blood in case the doctor wanted more tests run later. For that I am thankful because I do not want to re-enact that scene anytime soon.
Since that was enough drama for me for one day I decided share a picture of a silly project I did a few years ago. I had been having trouble with un-matched socks piling up. There were lots of commercials on at the time for places like Match.com. As a result, inspiration struck. I designed a saying and embroidered it on a purchased canvas bag. It is silliness, but makes me smile when I put an unmatched sock in it.
