This week I have to have the boys to Akron Children’s Hospital for a couple of reasons. First of all, they’re sick and need to be followed. Secondly, I’m supposed to have them to the Behavioral Health Clinic for their monthly follow-up and meds check. As I’m thinking about this though, that may have to be rescheduled because if they’re sick, aside for the pediatrician, they probably shouldn’t be going anyhere.
The pediatrician is local but the Behavioral Health Clinic is not. If we end up going to that, the kids will have to be pulled out of school right before lunch and won’t have time to eat until after they’re done.
Typically, I get them lunch on the way home because by that time, they’re starving. Usually, we hit a fast food place but this time around, I’d like to actually sit down somewhere and eat.
We haven’t gone out to eat for a few months now and I think it would be nice if we could. Assuming they’re better by then, perhaps we’ll stop at some place like Cracker Barrel.
Fast food is cheaper but it’s nice to just go out to eat every once is awhile. It adds a sense or normalcy to our lives. Sometimes, a bit of normalcy is a very positive thing. 🙂
