Preston has been accepted at Notre Dame Catholic School :).  Hopefully we’ll get some kind of financial assistance.  We’d applied for a scholarship through the Diocese, but haven’t heard anything yet.  I am excited about the possibility of providing Preston a Catholic education, and hope it is not stopped because of finances…

I got this aching pain in my mouth one day, and the next it was this great big sore – I guess it was a cold sore – on my tongue, near the back.  It hurt so bad that I couldn’t eat or talk.  Pretty much everything I did hurt…  So, for a few days I ate only soft foods… and very little.  I went to the doctor after a few days of agony.  They gave me a cortisone shot and some steroid mouth medicine to take for a few days.  The shot made me feel even worse!  My arms and legs ached.  I couldn’t even get a book off the shelf at the bookstore… It was pathetic, I had to ask Preston for help!  I even had to skip choir at church 🙁

Well, it’s been a few days (over a week), and it feels much better.  It’s not completely healed, but it is a lot better.  A lady at church suggested that the next time I feel one coming on, I should try Lysine.  I’ll have to remember that; I wouldn’t wish that pain on my worst enemy!

Yesterday we met up with my brother and his wife in Waurika for the 2012 Rattlesnake Hunt. We didn’t actually hunt for snakes (I hate them, personally). It is basically a big street carnival. Preston rode a kiddie-rollercoaster, a merry-go-round, and the ferris wheel. He had a great time with Uncle Ben! He even came home with a giant stuffed monkey, which he’s currently sleeping with!

Preston has been “cleaning” his room for about an hour and a half now. He’s not making a lot of progress… He’s mostly playing and singing. It’s hard to be mad at him, but I’m getting there.
