In Which Connor Has More Seizures And I Buy A Whole Lot Of Plants

Well, looks like Connor may be on another seizure run.  He had three today, though thankfully they were all pretty short.  So it may be time to up his Lamictal again or something; he's had a bit of a growth spurt recently.  He's not showing any evidence of being sick right now, so I don't think that's what's going on.

Otherwise the day went well; other than a few derby-related activities I spent the majority of it with my parents.  My mom and I had to stop by a plant nursery "just to look," and you can imagine how that turned out.  We got back too late in the evening to get started on putting everything in the ground, so we'll be doing a whole lot of planting tomorrow.  I'm especially excited about a variety of coral bells we found called 'Georgia Peach'-- it's got leaves as wide as my hand and is absolutely gorgeous.  I can't wait!

And yes, I could absolutely talk about plant varieties all day.  Don't get me started.

Then we stopped by the grocery store.  My mom is a garden enabler-- she encourages my plant addiction.  If she and my dad ever move up here we'll probably end up supporting the local plant nurseries all on our own.  Our grocery store has a plant nursery out front, and so even though we went to the store for milk and dinner fixings we ended up walking out with a cart full of green, growing things. 

We had a blast!

I used to do that with my mom. Hope Conner gets through this seizure streak quickly.

I'm not a plant nor flower person, and even if I was, I can't do any gardening at all. My daughter, gotta love her, is completely OBSESSED with them. Every time she sees leaves or flowers, she wants to run up to them, touch each and every single one - smell them - and then yank them out. I know it's just her autism "talking" but I really wish I could get her to cut that out! lol Also, much luck with Connor and his meds! It's never easy trying to adjust medication, so you have all my sympathy!
