This is where the magic happens, baby.

I stole this meme from In the Fast Lane. NaBloPoMo fodder, you know, desperate times and all of that.
If you are a blogger you now have a mission. As soon as you read this, drop everything, grab your camera and take pictures of where you blog from. NO CLEANING!!! THEN, tag some lucky ducks and spread the love.




Points of interest of this virtual tour of my workspace:

* The screen, which shows In the Fast Lane's blog and the photo of her workspace. Blog within a blog! Trippy!

* Coffee mug, filled with second cup of coffee for the day.

* Blue filing drawers: top drawer labeled "Medical", middle drawer labeled "School". bottom drawer labeled "Other"...all three are almost full with KayTar business.

* Binders on top of drawers: Larger binder is just a PORTION of KayTar's medical file, smaller binder is full of therapy reports.

* Index cards, that stack is ONLY my most recent Microbiology set.

* Planner, where all details of life are stored.

I'll tag Motherbumper (in NaBloPoMo solidarity), AJ, Amy, and Slouchy.

PS: The verdict is yes, KayTar does have a staph infection at her incision site, 1 part small abscess, 1 part cellulitis. I would include a photo, but most people don't really enjoy that sort of thing. Bactrim twice a day for 7 days, plus topical Bactroban and hopefully it will clear up. As the pediatrician said, "Well, we almost escaped this unscathed." Almost.

PPS: The cellulitis area more than doubled in size since our appointment this morning. We are watchfully waiting, but if it doesn't stop expanding by 11am tomorrow or if she spikes a fever, then we have to go to the ER for IV antibiotics. Of course.

I have nothing lovely to see at my blogging venue. No bright lights or pretty throw cushions. I do have a dog kennel at my elbow. Not as perty as your spot.

Good you got her infection under control. poor thing, she is going to be able to write the book on this when she is older.

Hetha said...

You would die if you saw my HURRICANE of a desk right now! Seriously, die. I totally bow down to you and your tidiness!

Hope KayTar's infection responds well to the antibiotics, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Beck said...

You are beautifully well organized. On the other hand, I have several jars of sprinkles on my desk. WTF?
Oh, KAYTAR! I hope things clear up quickly.

Ben had one of those last winter January/February. We have no Earthly clue how he got it but it was absolutely the grossest thing I/we had ever seen. It came with seizures and lots of ABs. I think I'll actually volunteer for this meme.

oh, boy. well, i won't be at home until sunday, so it's going to take me a while to do this one.

plus, i have to think about it, because i have a laptop that i take all around the house. so i'm not sure that i really have one blogging spot.

hmm. will ponder this.

i hope the infection is under control by now.

sheree said...

Assertagirl said...

Phew, for a second I saw the name Amy and my desk is a disaster. ha

~aj~ said...

I'm very impressed with your organizational skills. I've never really thought of you as UNorganized, but I do know how much you dislike cleaning. Let's just say I was surprised by your neat and tidy desk. :)

Thanks for tagging me. I'll get on this one later today!

This is without cleaning? Grrrrr. I am way too messy for a meme like that.
