What Happened to Saturday?

I do not understand why or how the weekends go by so fast. They just fly by. I wish the week days could go that fast. Anyway, Saturday was interesting. It started Friday night. At the Pinewood Derby, my eye was itching-perhaps I mentioned it on Friday night? Anyway, it was itchy and I rubbed it a few times and then POOF, it swelled to an amazing size. I iced it, and took a Benadryl. The Benadryl did nothing but put me to sleep for four hours on the couch. I woke up at 3 in the morning and went to bed. When I woke up Saturday morning, my eye was almost swollen shut, so I took myself to the urgent care. I waited forever-I think they forgot that they put me in a room. Anyway, the doctor said that things like Zyrtec and Claritan are H1 blockers, but the medicine, Zantac (a heartburn medicine) is a H2 blocker, so if I take them both in the morning, together, they should prevent EVERYTHING from bothering me. I have a prescription for the Zantac, and an appointment with an allergist. My eyes have been itchy and watery, and have been swollen off and on for months. It's been quite an annoyance. I am hoping to get some relief. I am sparing you the picture of my eye-I posted it on Facebook though.
Quinn's birthday is Thursday. He'll be 8-EIGHT! I can't believe it. I swear I just brought these boys home from the hospital! I got this cupcake pan today, to make him a giant cupcake cake for his party.
I also picked up another two of the-you guessed it, "World's Smallest 1,000 Piece Puzzle." I don't know why I get such a kick out of that name, but I do. Working puzzles is really relaxing for me.
Riley finished his book for the Young Author contest. It's really a good book. It's about a guy saving a Yeti from being sold by "Evil Men." It's very clever. He's proud of it, and we are proud of him. He worked hard, and did the whole thing by himself.

See that toothy grin? It will be changing tomorrow morning! Riley gets braces tomorrow. He's not all that excited.

Hope you all have a great week. My week is a whole lot less busy than last week, for which I am very happy. I slept a lot this weekend. Work is killing me these days.
