I hate my gallbladder. Let's go skating.

In some ways, I'd like to reach in there and rip the thing out myself, and in some ways I'd like to soothe it into releasing the prickly painful stones inside. But mostly, I'd just like to get a full night's sleep once in a while. I got a little complacent, stopped taking the tablets, starting eating crap again, and lo and behold, the last two weeks have been yucky.
But, on a much happier note, I got a chance to take my little Sarah rollerskating. Boy oh boy was that fun. We had a ball. I caught myself laughing out loud rather uncontrollably! My cousin's little girl was having a birthday party so we drove to South Carolina, right down the street from where we lived when Sarah was born and went to this party and I have to say, I haven't had that much fun in a long time. Even Hal got on a pair of skates and went around a time or two with me! My cousins were all giggling and reminiscing. Had it not been for my kid, I think I'd have felt like a kid again! Sarah was afraid at first, but when she saw everyone else doing it, she was ready to go. She held our hands the first time around the rink but after that she wanted to be let go. It was so cute to see her try so hard to be independent when she was doing this for the first time ever! I can't wait to teach her how to drive. :)
