Just talkin


I didn't post yesterday as I ran all day long. Miller had a hair appointment early then a music class to make up. We then proceeded to run a few short errands and headed to the pumpkin patch....not the hayride stay all morning day...just the run in and buy pumpkins, hay and stalks morning. Miller did alright for the most part. He enjoyed pulling the wagon around the place and putting 5o million things on it. We finally got out of there by lunch and ate at home. The pumpkin patch is just down the road from our house. My afternoon was just as crazy with Madison coming home and taking her and 2 others to gymnastics....wasting an hour waiting on them...Miller and I decided to go to the car wash....he watched his Leap Frog movie while I vacuumed the car and sweat.
Then I drove all three girl to cheer practice came home and finished cooking had a glass of Chardonnay and past out.....after cleaning the kitchen, separating Cookie Dough orders and bath time...and checking homework.
Scott didnt get home until 10pm. I was exhausted.

So today is Wednesday. My day. I'm running a few errands. We have some gifts to pick up. Miller is going to my mom's house. Delivering cookie dough. Getting my jeep serviced and the tail light fixed on it. Running to the library. And having lunch with an old friend. We have church tonight and my new bible study starts...Mom to Mom....I'm really excited about this one.

We are having Leftovers tonight. Scott didnt eat so he can have last nights meal and Madison will eat at church...so me and Miller will eat leftovers.

The weekend will be a crazy one. We will be going all day Saturday. Alot of you asked how I do it....I just do. I dont have much of a choice. My day starts at 5am and ends sometimes at 11pm.....we go all the time...but I live on it.

Thank you for prayers on Miller. He is feeling much better. He has been on a decongestant and steroid pack so things are looking up...no more croup. As for me....I take it one day at a time. Baby steps....I think of my aunt constantly and realize it will take TIME to move on and accept this. But boy do I miss her laugh.

I hope you all have a fantastic day......hug your loved one.

Good Morning Jen! Yes you had a busy day yesterday. The temps have been so nice here, yesterday and today...a high of 79 today...we'll see. 63 this morning. I have washed my quilt for my bed and have it on the line already...also scrubbed my front porch floor and now it is drying. There is a nice cool wind blowing that says "Fall is here!". I have my windows open and how I wish I could build a fire in the fire place! Glad Miller is feeling better. I hope you have a great day!

Girl, I am worn out just reading your post today. I used to love taking my kids to the pumpkin patch. I am assuming you go to Wurth's. I love that place. I need to take Abby. I wish I had thought of that Saturday. Silly me.

All kidding aside, I hope you have a wonderful wednesday and have fun :)

I love/hate days like that because I love that I get a ton of things done and I feel so purposeful...but then there is the bone crushing fatigue at the end of it LOL

The pumpkin patch sounds like fun! Guess it's time to get all my stuff out maybe.

God bless you, Jen, during this difficult time. I'm sure staying busy helps.

I still can't believe all the stuff you get done in a day. I am glad to hear that Miller is better. I know what cleaning the car is like with your toddler sitting there while you sweat. A few years ago I was at the car wash and my kid was strapped into his car seat and hit the locks and guess where the keys were? On my front seat. The fire dept. had to send some firemen to get him out. What a day that was, and the moral of the story is don't leave your keys in your car with a toddler who likes to push buttons.
