It’s Friday again

It’s been a whole week since I last blogged.  And a few days since I have read any blogs as well.  Tonight I logged in to discover 82 posts to read.  Thankfully that was better than earlier in the week when I had 120 plus to read.  Are you all prolific or what?  So if anyone thinks that I’ve snubbed you, I’m sorry. I just have been a little busy and have only skim read some of your posts.

It’s only a week until I get my head shaved.  I’m struggling a little with the whole getting up on the stage at a school assembly but that’s what I have agreed to do.   Last time I did the Shave , it at a friends house with a few people there.  This time there will be over 400 people: kids, teachers and parents. I think saying I’m nervous is a major understatement.
So far I have received on line donations of $422.00 which is 38 % of my $1,100 goal.  I’d like to thank my .sponsors and also those bloggers who have posted about the Great Shave.  If you want to sponsor me here is  my WGS page. I thanked Langdowns last time and I need to thank Being Me from Sunny Side Up who also blogged about the cause and even better referred to me as a blogger Buddy!  Oh yeah, I’m one of the in crowd now! Isn’t  that great!  Smile
So what else has been happening here? Well, life has been plodding along.  Boy Child went to camp for four days and had a great time.  He even tried more new (to him) foods.  I’m very impressed but eve more impressed with the the fact that he will actually try to eat stuff he doesn't like because someone else has made it for him.  Like the ham  salad (lettuces, cheese and cucumber) with mayonnaise  sandwich he ate at camp because a teacher made it specifically for him.  Of course it would have been nice if they asked what he actually eats because he hates mayonnaise, lettuce and hadn’t eaten cheese or cucumber in years.  Apparently the reason he eats for others is that other people don’t listen when he says he doesn't want / like stuff and we do.  Aren’t we nice parents?  Probably the years of gagging and throwing up due to sensory issues have made us much more sensitive than those who have never had to deal with these type of things. 
I took Girl Child to get her eyes checked this week and she needs glasses.  We had wondered as she often reads and writes with her face almost touching the page.  But she could also read things far away and close up at other times with no issue.  It turns out that she has problems changing focus between far and near things.  Apparently we have caught the issue before it’s a permanent problem and hopefully wearing the glasses now may correct the issue and she won’t need them long term.
In other news, we got a new bunny.  Here she is with our boy bunny: 
IMAG0002 (2)
They are both from the RSPCA (and therefore de-sexed) so there will be no baby bunnies for us.  As cute as baby bunnies are (our girl had recently had a litter when we first saw her) there are enough animals in the world without decent homes.  Bonding the two of them went really well and they are very good friends.
Well it’s late and this is my FYBF post and Friday is almost over so I will get this published and go to bed.
Night all!

OOPS I forgot to add the FYBF badge and linky.  What can I say it was late for me.  This week’s is being held by Glowless check her out.
