Wedding gift and Daniel's dr appt

The other night I realized that I had forgotten to get a wedding gift for my friend's wedding reception the next day. I had reminded myself the entire week but still managed to forget! Great. So my choice was either to run out to the store for a gift card or spend a few hours making something. It seems like an easy choice, right? Well, we had just finished a grueling family grocery trip and the idea of going somewhere was awful. So I raided my fabric stash and used up the last of this beautiful damask fabric.
Four placemats. I looked on her registry and they mostly had blacks and neutrals, so I figured this would be the best bet.
And I made some finger potholders to match.
I hope she likes them!
This morning we had a follow-up appt with the ENT to see about getting Daniel tubes. He had an ear infection a few weeks ago so I was all prepared for them to say go for it. Instead, the doctor told me to come back in 6-8 weeks and if he's had 1-2 more ear infections, then we could get tubes for him. So that means I've been to the specialist twice (with a higher copayment), have a third appt scheduled, and have taken him to the normal doctor 6x for ear infections, plus the cost of antibiotics, pain meds, and have to wait for TWO MORE ear infections with the accompanying copayments and antibiotics before he can get tubes. Because he's almost 2 and so they might magically go away, according to her. I think you can see how I feel about this. But I'm trying to be all zen about it and so I'm hoping that she's right and he won't get any more ear infections and then I can cancel the next appointment (and not have to wait up to an hour in the specialist's office because they are never on time) and not get him tubes.
