Since we last spoke......

I took today off from work to spend over 2 1/2 hours at the allergy doctor's office with Reed. We have been battling a cough and allergy symptoms since July and finally got a referral to see the allergist.

Reed is allergic to the typicals: trees, grass, weeds, dust mites, mold, and CATS. Well, we have a cat. We've had her for 3 years now, and Reed is just now acting like she's bothering her. But, looking back on it, the cat did just start sleeping with Reed this summer. Oops!! Now, we've got to figure out how to deal with Reed and not have to get rid of Stripes. I'm sure Billy would be willing to make the sacrifice but I don't know if the girls could give her up. Kitty-girl is pretty special to them, even though the cat is weird. I've never been around a cat that doesn't want people to acknowledge her at all. Reed and Billy are the only two that she will allow to touch her, pick her up, or just rub on her. She swats at Allie everytime poor Allie gets close. She just gives me the evil eye and takes off running when I look at her. Just pray that we can remedy this without wailing.

I've got to go back to school this evening for parent conferences. We are doing 3 hours this evening and then half a day tomorrow. I hope it works out. I've got to keep the girls with me until Billy can get here, close to 5. Reed has dance at 5:30 so he better be on time!!! Brittany's keeping the girls in the morning. I just didn't realize how much I depended on my mother-in-law for watching the girls. They will be back in town this weekend though.

Say a prayer for us on the cat and on my conferences. No problems, that I'm aware of but you never know!!!!

My husband loves cats but is allergic to them. He tried for a few months to have one, but it was too much. Good luck.
