Last week was pretty nice. I took the week off of my part time jobs. I enjoyed not having to leave the house much. Just do things around here that I wanted to do. Yes, last week was pretty nice.
This week however started out with bad news.
Katie was going somewhere with the car on Sunday. I don't remember where right now and it doesn't really matter.
Jake just so happened to be standing in the driveway, facing the car, when he noticed something on the tire. He stopped Katie and upon closer examination, noticed that the steel belts were popping through both front tires all the way around the tires.
These tires were only fourteen months old. I don't even put 10,000 miles a year on my car.
Of course being that it was a Sunday, I couldn't do anything about it until Monday after Jake would be gone to work.
When I did take the car in I had to buy two new tires even though the tires were still under warranty. And that is because way back last winter when Katie had a flat tire after accidentally driving in a ditch, the tie-rod got bent when she backed out of the ditch.
So the part was ordered and I returned on Wednesday to have it replaced and the car aligned. The good news is the car rides like new once again. Bad news, it costs about $500.00 in repair work.
I don't blame Katie, Hell I may have tried backing out of the ditch myself. I actually did this once with our pick-up. But that's another story for another day.
Yesterday Katie had a routine doctor's visit with her ENT. Katie has to have her ears cleaned out every six months or so as she has eczema in her ears.
She also has had surgery in the past for nasal cysts and polyps.
She's been stuffy for a month. She's a bit paranoid about this. I can't blame her. She takes allergy medications regularly.
The news wasn't good. We both were fearing the worst. The ENT found another polyp. Oh my poor Katie. Her mood changed instantly. So did mine.
The surgery is scheduled for June 25th. The good news is that we caught it early and this surgery will be much less invasive than the last one. No packing! That made her a bit more relieved.
She had a horrible migraine for a week after the last surgery. The doctor assured us that should not be the case this time.
When we came home, all Kate wanted to do was take a nap. But not before telling me that the day after the surgery she wants Biscuits and Gravy, Ice Cream and mom's homemade Chicken with homemade noodles.
I'll be doing some cooking that day. I am grateful that I don't know how to make homemade Ice Cream. Please do not send me recipes or directions!!
So I guess that's life. You get a good week and you get a bad week. We'll muddle through.
Keep the Faith and keep on goin'.
I hope you all had a GOOD week!!
