Today… *checks time* Yesterday… Fumiko and Sascha and I went to the park down the road and explored the trails! I took lots of pictures of plants. I want to learn what they all are. Help a girl out. If you know what some of these plants are please tell me! I have failed at google. d= We had fun. Though we ended up at a marsh like thing and I got one of my shoes soaked in mud. Oops. We found a poor little wooly bear caterpillar on one of the trails. We almost stepped on the poor little guy. I moved him off the trail so he was safe and wouldn’t get smooshed. I think next weekend we will go out again and explore in the other direction. We had fun.

The kids and I got to go to Autism Society of Oregon’s 13th Annual Autism Walk at Oak’s Park on Sunday! Here are some pictures from my camera. Sascha and Fumiko also took pictures with another camera. I haven’t even uploaded those yet. lol They took a lot! I wore Aromaleigh Cosmetics Neurodivergent eyeshadow. It was very fitting! It’s one of their autism awareness shadows and it’s gorgeous. Also I have to gush about Lunatick Cosmetic Labs primer. My friend Kat sent me a sample because it’s what she uses. I have oily lids and it’s hard to find a primer that works for me. Well I applied my makeup around 7am on Sunday. The photos I took of my makeup were at the end of the day. There was no creasing or missing eye makeup. It looked just like it did when I first applied it. It’s magic people. MAGIC. It’s kind of amazing. After the walk we got to ride the rides at Oak’s Park. The favorite was the tilt o whirl and the spider and another one I can’t remember the name of. They were all of course spinning rides. xd It was awesome and the kids had so much fun. I fell apart when we got home. I ended up getting sunburned on my chest, shoulders and scalp. yep!

First Happy Friday the 13th! Second, Fumiko got sick at her dads last Saturday and when she came home Sunday she had a fever and a sore throat. d= I ran to the store and got some OTC fever and cough medicine and started giving it to her. Her fever hovered between 100 and 101 for most of the week. Monday I kept her home because she was just too ill to go to school. Tuesday she looked better so she went back to school. Thursday after school she looked worn out and tired. She had dark circles under her eyes which she often gets when she’s sick, but these were worse than usual.

When we got home I gave her her ADHD medication and a dose of the fever/cough medicine then I called NARA to see if I could get her in that day or Friday and our doctor had nothing available nor did anyone else. So I checked her temperature and it was over 103. I think it was 103.2. It was too high. She was freezing under a blanket on the couch. I got her shoes on her and put her robe on her, got her bottle of tea(the only thing she’d been willing to drink all week and barely that), got my moms kindle and we went to the ER. They got us right into a triage room and started getting her info. Then the nurse took her temperature and she told me it was over 104. t.t It only took us maybe 10 minutes to get to the ER. So they took her straight into a room.

After a couple of minutes a nurse came in and put a cool wet cloth over her forehead and I turned cartoons on for her. The doctor came in not long after and looked at her throat. He said she had a bad case of strep throat. He said “I’m not even going to bother doing a culture, she has big white spots on the back of her throat, she has strep and it looks bad”. So he prescribed her amoxicillin. The nurse gave her some fluids and a dose of motrin/tylenlol and a popsicle. I was told to give her the amoxicillin three times a day for ten days and to get some motrin and tylenol to give her. So home we went. I dropped her off and went to get her Rx and the tylenol/motrin. I have been sick all week and not feeling well and this morning I woke up with a sore throat. Ugh, ugh, ugh. Sascha was coughing all night long and I was afraid I was going to have to take him to the ER. Luckily he doesn’t have a store throat just feels nauseated and has a slight fever. Here’s to hoping he and I don’t get it.

Fumiko is doing better today. Her fever is going up and down between 99 and 100 but that is a whole lot better than 104. Her throat still hurts and she doesn’t feel good but she’s drinking and eating a little more and doesn’t look so pale and ill. I am tired and I want to sleep for a week. But instead I made dinner and am doing laundry. And later I have more pictures to take. Always more pictures!

Fumiko was a witch and Sascha was a skull ninja! We only trick or treated for an hour and the kids had full bags. People were just giving out candy by the handful. It was crazy. I hope everyone is having a safe and happy Halloween!

A couple of Saturdays ago we carved pumpkins! Which means I did all the carving and de-gutting of Fumiko’s pumpkin and de-gutted Sascha’s pumpkin. Anyways they both turned into cat pumpkins! Sadly the pumpkins only lasted a couple of days after they got carved. d= they rotted and fell apart.

Let me give you some history. Both the kids and I suffer from allergies. We’re all on allergy medication. I don’t eat a lot of apples or pears. They both give me a stomach ache and are hard for me to eat. I don’t like soft fruit, I can’t stand the texture, so I eat my fruit on the hard side. Since I am missing so many teeth and have so many broken teeth, that’s really hard. A few weeks ago I picked up a couple of Asian Pears when we went grocery shopping, because I hadn’t purchased any in a long time and they smelled good. Along with those I picked up about 4 peaches. The kids scarfed up the peaches and left the pears. So I decided to slice one up to eat. I sat down with a knife and ate a couple of slices. I noticed my tongue and mouth started to hurt really bad, then my mouth and throat started to burn. When I looked in the mirror my tongue had some big raw spots on it and my mouth was swollen. Then I noticed my arm had a huge rash where I had carried the pear. I broke out in hives on my arm and some on my face.

From there I proceeded to look up symptoms online and found pear and apple allergies. Apparently they can be common for those with hayfever allergies because they all have birch pollen in common. Fumiko had been getting stomach aches and “sore throats” constantly for months. It dawned on me that it might be from all the apples she was eating. So I asked her if her throat hurt or if her mouth and throat burned. She told me her mouth and throat burned. So I asked if it did that all the time or if it was just when she ate. She said when she ate apples she got a sore throat and tummy ache. So no more apples. From what I read it was supposed to be raw pears and apples, however yesterday at school they gave Fumiko apple juice.

I got an email yesterday morning from the school principal telling me Fumiko developed a rash all over her face and forehead. They needed me to pick her up because they were afraid it was contagious. I had emailed them a couple of weeks prior when I first suspected the allergy and told them she wasn’t to have apples or pears. So we picked her up and the first thing I asked was what she had for breakfast. She had apple juice. *face palm* By the time we got home she had hives all over her face, her mouth and throat were burning and swollen and she just didn’t feel good. I started her on benadryl and put some cream on her face. She’s been taking benadryl regularly since yesterday. The swelling and burning in her mouth and throat went away yesterday, but she’s still got hives. They got fairly bad last night, are better today, but they’re still all over.

She wasn’t able to go to school because of the rash today. The school nurse and principal assured me it was in her record now. I was told that Fumiko needed to remember to not have apples at school… I know that they have buttons and whatnot for the kids at school with allergies. An apple allergy is no different than a nut allergy. -.- We have a doctors appointment on Friday. The school wants her to come back with an epi pen and see an allergist. Hopefully I can get an epi pen from the doctor, I don’t know what will happen about an allergist. I’ll see what the doctor says. The hives have cleared up a little bit throughout the day, so I don’t think an emergency trip is necessary, however I’m a little worried about her getting into apple again. The reaction escalated quickly. So from now on our apartment is apple and pear free. I’m going to try to get a bracelet or something when I can that lists it as an allergy. Apples are a no-go bro. d=

Dude. Guys. I am so tired. SO TIRED. Too much today with not feeling well. I made stir fry vegetables with fish and rice noodles for lunch, and put on my face, and then we did pumpkins. By we I mean I cut and gutted Fumiko’s and gutted Sascha’s. I made him cut his own shit. But my shoulder that was already sore is way sore and it hurts to move it in any general direction. xd There were lots of pictures which shall be posted tomorrow cause that ain’t happening tonight. Then grocery shopping. See. I typed grocery stopping. Cause I need to stop. I have been nearly falling asleep since like 6pm. Only 18 more minutes until a certain small child’s bedtime appears. THANK THE WORLD. I took a bath and fell asleep in it. Oops. I got stuff for shepards pie and tacos. Woo. Also Fumiko is sick. Argh. Whhyyyy. Yesterday when she got home from school she had a horrible sore throat. Like she came home all was well then she just started screaming that her throat was hurting and yeah it’s a biggy. So she’s been hopped up on herbs and that nasty throat spray that numbs your throat for like .5 seconds and some fever reducer/pain killer syrup. Luckily a box arrived today with dye free berry flavored Children’s Advil. Cause I was almost out of the other stuff we’ve been using. When she’s reaaalllly sick fever reducer/pain relievers are miracles. So thank goodness for that. She HATES the taste of the other one. It’s awful, it smells awful. She actually liked the Children’s Advil. Which I am forever thankful for. There’s nothing more fun than forcing a sick, cranky child to take nasty red syrup that apparently tastes like death. 12 MORE MINUTES. Anyways. I did pumpkin-y colored eyes because it was pumpkin carving day.

Just a few pictures of the kiddos from the other night. Sascha was not bothered by me getting some pictures for once. xd And I trimmed Fumiko’s bangs back again, they were getting too long. She likes her “bang bangs” to be very precise. She likes them cut one way and one way only. xd

I have a very bad ear ache. t.t My right ear is killing me and the headache is not helping. To top it off I feel like I have the flu from hell and keep getting sick to my stomach. Boo. I really wanted to swatch today, but the sun didn’t come out. It’s been raining, which I love, just not when I need to swatch. xd Hopefully the sun comes out tomorrow. I hope everyone is enjoying Autumn so far, when it’s not hot anyways.

Fumiko’s dad took the kiddos to the pumpkin patch yesterday. I forgot to charge my camera battery and it was dead. So these are from his cell phone. They got to go through the haunted maze and try to find clues to solve the farmer’s murder. Unfortunately they got tired after finding half the clues, so they didn’t get to find out who murdered him, but they had fun. They each got to pick a pumpkin and picked out nice big pumpkins to carve. I’m thinking this coming Saturday we’ll dig into them. They both woke up really sick this morning with high fevers. They’re both feeling better so to school they go in the morning. I’ll be giving them some more medicine in the morning before school, which will make them super happy. >.>

They also got to pick out costumes before we went to the pumpkin patch. Sascha picked out a skull ninja costume with ninja swords and Fumiko got a Draculaura costume from Monster High and a cute skull bag for trick or treating. Though I think she plans on wearing the witch costume I got for her. I found a really cute witch dress and a sparkly bat witch hat at the thrift store. Found out after we got home that it lights up. So she’s all happy about that. I had a migraine for part of this week, which turned into a headache, which now feels like it’s getting worse again. Boo. Anyways. Pictures.

Oh also. You may have noticed my blog was going batshit crazy today. d= I’m not sure when it started. It was fine after I made my last blog post on Saturday, but this morning it was just… blank. So I sent in a help ticket. Which didn’t go so well. At first they couldn’t figure it out, then added some script to some file, which made wordpress show up kind of… It was showing posts that were years old and the whole page was a jumbled mess. They finally figured out that a plugin was causing the error. Turns out it was one I updated on Saturday, that apparently got updated again between the time that I updated it and my blog went down because it was causing an error.

It was a very stressful day waiting to see what happened, and then seeing files getting removed was even scarier. But they ended up restoring files and I had to go through and enable plugins one by one to see which one was causing the issue, they messaged me AFTER I was mostly done to let know which two they thought it was. But all is well now, I hope. *knocks on wood* I had planned on doing round 3 of my Aromaleigh swatches, but the blog went cuckoo and the sun didn’t come out to play at all, and well I need Mr. Sun to come out so I can do them. So hopefully tomorrow is a better day for swatches! Also hopefully headache doesn’t turn into migraine.

She made her very own necklace(Thanks Evonne!) today. It was nice. She was a normal child for about an hour instead of a demon spawn. xd Also she put makeup on, all over her face. :d I haven’t posted family photos in awhile, it seems not right with Sascha in Michigan with his dad and grandparents. He’ll be out of school June 15th. Woot! It’s so close. Anyways here’s my little pale face.

:( I didn’t realize my hipstamatic film got changed. Stupid shakey changey thingy. So these are all dark. :( I didn’t realize it had changed until all the presents were opened. So poop. But at least I got photos! My mom came up and watched Fumiko open presents too! She’s still recovering from having a stent put in her main artery so she gets tired and exhausted easily. But it was nice that she was able to come up and partake in christmas presents! Now she’s downstairs resting with Willow. :)

So presents!
Fumiko got some nice things. :d

  1. From Kai and I she got a Dead Tired Draculaura doll, and a Draculaura and Count Fabulous plushie.
  2. From Mamoo she got a Mad Science Lagoona Blue doll and a Lagoona Blue and Neptuna Plushie.
  3. From Grandma Sue and Grandpa Tom[1. They are actually Sascha’s biological grandparents but Fumiko adores them and they are grandma and grandpa to her. :d ] in Michigan she got a cute shirt, skirt, pants and a kitty hat and mittens. :d
  4. From Dawn she got a cute Hello Kitty plate and fork and spoon set.

So she got some nice goodies. For her birthday we got her a Starlite pillow pet[2. Which I’m seriously thinking about stealing.] and a Sweet 1600 Clawdeen Wolf Monster High doll. We’ve checked at so many stores for monster high dolls of any kind and there were none, anywhere. I found this one when I went to get a japanese beer from Kai. It was seriously the last doll and she was on sale for $22. :d Fumiko really wanted the Draculaura, Frankie Stein or C.A. Cupid Sweet 1600 dolls but I can’t find them anywhere in stores and their prices are jacked up online. :( But I’m sure she’ll like the one we got her anyways. We’ll just work on getting the other ones later. Her birthday is on the 31st, then mine is on the 1st, then Kai’s is on the 7th, and his mom’s is on the 21st I think? Lots of January birthdays. I’m still not sure what cupcakes I’m going to do for her birthday and we still have to go get hello kitty themed birthday stuff. But yeah. Today was nice.

Kai got these awesome soft, fuzzy pants from his mom and a star wars light saber chap stick that lights up. haha I got him a bloodstone pendulum and his star wars game. I got a pair of lotus earrings from his mom which are awesome and I love them. She also got us an awesome new shower head. :d Kai used his new phone upgrade on my phone line so he got me a white iPhone for christmas. It’s seriously awesome and I don’t know how I lived without hipstamatic. :O Santa also brought Fumiko all sorts of goodies. Hello kitty crayons, tattoos, a coloring book, a coloring thing that rolls out and you can cut off individual coloring things, hello kitty, chococat and keroppi socks and some candy. She’s been super happy and calm and sitting quietly playing with her dolls. Though at one point the Neptuna plushie was a zombie and Draculaura and Lagoona Blue had to murder her. O.O

No christmas dinner today. It was not in our budget and I am not up to cooking all that much anymore. :( Kai’s been doing most of the cooking and I’ve basically been eating steamed broccoli, roasted brussels sprouts and carrots, and sauteed spinach with lemon juice. Not much is agreeing with me lately. :(

So yeah. It’s been a nice day. :) I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and staying safe! <3 haha and now Fumiko is watching monster high. xd

Fumiko has been coming up with some good things this week!

  1. On the way to pick Kai up from work the other day a truck with a long horse trailer pulled up next to us. You could see this lovely white/gray horse from one of the windows on the horse trailer. Fumiko squeeled and mumbled something about the horse, I said “did you see the horse?” and she responds “Yes! Horse go shopping and get hair cut!” Uh, what? lol I told her I didn’t think the horse was going to do that.
  2. Later after we picked Kai up from work we had to stop at Walgreen’s to pick up one of my medications and then went to Fred Meyer to get some apples and cottage cheese for my mom. While we were leaving the parking lot a fire truck pulled in front of us. Fumiko says “what’s that truck?!”, Kai and I told her it was a fire truck. She then says “Fire truck saves world houses?” haha Kai says “yes, fire trucks save the worlds houses from fires.” Then she says “fire truck bring a band aid for Miko’s finger boo boo?”, Kai says “Yes, fire truck brings a band aid for Fumiko’s finger…. if it were chopped off.” lol So then she says “Fire truck bring Miko a hello kitty band aid?” hahahaha Then Kai started talking about how the fire truck should just be hello kitty themed and I said Hello Kitty saves lives… in Japan. Then he reminded me she also prevents pregnancy in Japan. hehehehe
  3. So today we went to Fred Meyer to get toilet paper. I have three hello kitty re-usable shopping bags of awesome. Seriously, they’re awesome. So we brought one, I’m not sure why since we were just getting toilet paper, but anyways! Fumiko likes to carry the bags. Last time Sascha carried one and Fumiko carried one, this time Fumiko carried it as it’s her job! So we get inside the store and Kai offered to take the bag from Fumiko, she says “I can do it myself!”. It was hilarious because she sounded genuinely offended that Kai would offer to take the bag. She’s never said that before. It still makes me laugh.

And this week most of Sascha’s conversations can be summed up by saying Pokemon and Plants vs. Zombies. xd Also, NO you cannot breed two ditto’s and they will not make a super ditto. But in all seriousness I forgot how much Sascha talks. Kai gave him his DS since Sascha’s bit the dust recently. So he’s been playing his old Pokemon Pearl cartridge. Kai and I use to play Pokemon pretty religiously, but I haven’t played for a couple of years and with all my neurological issues I’ve completely forgotten how to play, or at least most of the features of the game. I’ve spent quite a bit of time on Psypoke’s Psydex looking up info for Sascha, breeding him pokemon, catching him pokemon, and trading him pokemon. Who knew I would be up to my ears in pokemon!

Kai took a week off of work so we could take the kids to the coast and to the aquarium and so he’d have a solid chunk of time to spend with Sascha before he goes home. So next week we shall be going to the coast! Hooray! It’ll be Fumiko’s first time to both, and hopefully a trip to the zoo as well. Neither Sascha or Fumiko have been to the zoo here. Fair warning, if all goes as planned and we do both I’ll probably be out of commission for at least a week after, and I probably won’t be on much the next few days so I can try to rest in advance. Oh, the joys of lyme. :ANGRY: That is all except for does adapexin work or has anyone heard anything about it? I was asked about it earlier and I hadn’t ever heard of it. Informations please!

Also dinner has appeared to make me horribly sick tonight. :( Kai made fish and chips. It was his first time frying anything. He did a good job, the fish was tasty, the fries, not so much. :( Thank goodness for the Fry Baby though. I want another one!
