I tried to be horizontal as much as possible (while being a stay at home mom). If only I could call in sick... And I really tried hard not to talk unless it was really necessary. My throat felt horrible!
But, I'm all better now. Health-wise, I mean. But I am so behind in all my paperwork crap and making appointments, etc.
I've also developed this weird problem... I have to have the house neat and clean in order to sit down and do anything (like blog, write thank you notes, pay bills, etc.). You can probably see where this is going...
By the time I get the house neat and clean, Cooper gets home from school at noon and he just messes it all up again. I have to make him lunch, clean it up, feed the dog, walk the dog and then Harlie and Murphy get home. And they make an even bigger mess. So, I never actually get to stop and do what I need to do.
I just can't focus when the house is a mess. It drives me crazy.
Anyway, to organize my thoughts for a sec, here's what I want to blog about in the near future:
We Heart Harlie 5k (back on September 30th!)
Where we are with the trach/sleep study
Richmond Half marathon
Wonder by R.J. Palacio book review
Well, let me just get Halloween done now.
First, my little project...
|Take a beautiful pumpkin|
|and paint it black. Twice.|
|Then sprinkle with glittery stuff.|
|Then add eyes, a mouth and six very large |
pipe cleaner legs. Isn't he a cutie?!
Thanks Martha Stewart kit at Target!
Harlie got to put on her costume at school for a character parade. Terri (her nurse) took this photo of her. There is something about it that I love.
|Harlie, Cooper and Murphy (aka Power Rangers)|
|Me in my Halloween wig, and Harlie.|
So, I have to admit that I wasn't a huge fan of Harlie's costume. But she picked it last year and I bought it last year. But it was WAY too big for her, so I talked her into being a bee, and exchanged the costumes. This year when we took the kids to the store, she picked that darn cat costume, AGAIN! My niece Maggie was with us at the time and said, "Well, you might as well let her get it out of her system." Wise words from a 20-year old. It turned out pretty cute, and she was happy, so it's all good.
And of course, Rooney had to get in on the fun...
Harlie gave him the bag. He's such a good pup. Here he is again after Harlie got to him...
Okay, that's it for now. Hopefully I'll be able to update again soon!
