And yes I spelled that wrong on purpose. We woke up this morning to Kealey’s having made a HUGE banner that said “Happy Clumbus Day” – we, of course, thought it was the cutest thing ever. she has no idea what it is, but hey, it means no school so it must be worth making a sign over, right? She clearly got her spelling AND math skills from Ben – which means one is a little lacking while she excels in the other. I love that kid…
So today was definitely a harbinger of the days ahead – cold, dreary, and full of cabin fever! I better get some good plans in for the holiday breaks or we are going to be in some serious trouble! Of course it WOULD have been a great day to hit the pumpkin patch –but its SO COLD!!! I can’t fathom the thought of bundling them all up for that trip and then trying to keep them all out of imminent danger to themselves or passers-by. I mean, i want to. but I just don’t think there’s enough mind altering chemical persuasion in this world right now. And trust me it would take a lot to get me out there! Maybe tomorrow. Maybe.
in between therapy appointments and attempts at housecleaning and a little bit of work thrown in.
i did, however, manage to get a few errands run today, enjoy a nice IHOP breakfast with my darling sister, AND i made a hairbow! I know, all in a day’s work. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.
And with that – I think I’m out.
Thankfully, there is really no other news to report! In spite of my eagle eyes watching every new little thing Kendall does, she appears to be holding up well to her vaccine from last week. amazingly – the cough does seem to be gone, less than 48 hours off of the pears. Who would have thought?!?!? And while her stomach seems to be slowing, she is tolerating her feeds still pretty well, and no sign of that cough this week! But of course this afternoon Karissa started up with a horrible cough, a slight fever, and kaylen is even more “off” than normal! I pray that we aren’t at the start of something and that it can hold off for a few more weeks at least! I have heard of so many friends getting this nasty bug this early in the season – and it scares me that we’re in for a long winter – not just for our family, but for so many families that we know.
Such a happy ending note! But i am suddenly tired, and that rarely happens without some good cold meds so I am going to take advantage of it and hopefully get some good sleep in!
Hope you all had a Happy Clumbus Day!
(and a happy thanksgiving to all my canadian friends, eh)
