awol...mia...

sarah and i did something yesterday that we have not done before...we went awol...mia...yes we just disappeared in the middle of the afternoon. it's been a hard week for her, so when she started crying after realizing she would not in fact be seeing a relative she thought she would...



i suggested we go to the pool after the store closed. but first we had to run down to city hall to get her pass renewed. i put a sign on the door that said we would be back in 20 minutes. instead, it took us over two hours because the city now requires a doctor to confirm that the applicant truly has a disability.

so momma called the doctor and the doctor said...nothing about monkeys jumping on the bed...but that she was about to jump on a plane and her office would be closed for the next two weeks. say what? have you ever seen a grown woman cry? yea...that would be me...walking by the police window where others wept because their loved ones were in a holding cell...i shed tears over a pool pass. seriously...i can't make this stuff up.

so off we raced to the doctor's office where we waited, and waited, and waited, and waited for her to sign the form confirming that sarah indeed has down syndrome, thus qualifying for a disability pool pass. 



the good news...i took a nap by the pool last night while sarah enjoyed the warmth of the sunshine...for free...thank you city of south euclid...




so what's the POINT of all this? if you came to our store yesterday, only to find the door locked...PLEASE CALL ME.     440-684-9830 Have a good weekend!!

What a sweet story about a sweet girl and her mom. Loved it. Our kids (my daughter's) are with their (awful) dad this week so we miss them. I keep thinking...who is taking care of Lizzie??? I know the 3 year old will be fine. But I worry about my little (down syndrome) lizzie...wah. I miss her. I am sure you understand.
