Tuesday. Ten.

  1. Several people have asked me about our trip to the ER last week and I've been horrible about getting back with the story... I ended up taking Ethan down one evening last week because he was very confused, with slurred speech and difficulty forming words... it was terrifing as a mom. And of course Asia was out of town. They did a CT scan and bloodwork, which all came back normal. The best the doctor could come up with was that he had a concussion from a fall a couple of days before... Apparently, you can have a delay in the symptoms...
  2. I'm putting my application for my trip to Sierra Leone in the mail this morning, along with my deposit to open my account for the trip. Can you believe it?
  3. My husband reads. A lot. But he only reads one genre. Fantasy. If you recommend a book to him (especially if it's non-fiction) he will go to the library and bring it home, get me interested in it, and then I will read it. Then I will tell him about it. And then he will go around talking about it. As if he read it. He's a cheater that way.
  4. Speaking of my husband, he's become a very good driver the last week. Must have something to do with the fact that he got a ticket recently and was able to get it deferred when he went to court... which means if he doesn't get another ticket in a year, this one will never show on his record. But which also means, if he does get another ticket, he will have to pay the full penalty on both AND both will show up on his record. It's a dream come true, people.
  5. Weight Watchers report: 15.8 pounds gone. 3.4 pounds from my goal weight.
  6. The kids are at VBS this week. This is Kyler's last year - he's been to this VBS every year since he was 4 years old... it's a good one. And always good timing for me - by this point in the summer a couple of quiet hours in the morning are SO welcome.
  7. Savannah goes to the orthodontist Monday morning for the first step in getting her braces... I think they're making a casting of her teeth or something. Braces actually go on in September.
  8. I'm going to post a bunch of stuff on Craigslist today... we had almost instant success selling Ethan's bike a couple of weeks ago - so now the bug has bit... I'm eager to see what else I can get rid of.
  9. We had three evenings in a row last weekend of dinner at friends' houses... we are spoiled. And well fed.
  10. Scrapbookers: are you following all the new stuff being released at CHA summer? Here's a great link to see everything all in one place... check it out! My favorites so far have to be KI Memories, Basic Grey and Maya Road. Amazing stuff.

Happy Tuesday friends!

    I see that one thing is selling stuff you don't need...perhaps to do that TMMO thing.

    It is quite the bug.

    Good luck and god bless.

  2. Scary about Ethan.
    Hope all is well now!

    I have to vote for Autumn Leaves as my favorite scrapbook product for fall. I love their things.

    We just had a yard sale last weekend and got rid of a ton of stuff! Boy, does it feel good :0)

    And that scrap link, Cathy!
    Very dangerous ;0)

  6. Hi Cathy. Glad to see that Ethan is ok. That is scary. I have been peaking at the LM board too. There is a lot of pretty stuff coming out!

  7. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! i wonder if that was the same fall that Katie and Ethan took together???? Katie fell asleep 3 times that day and i would have taken her to the er however i was with a friend who has been MULTIPLE times for just such a thing and she said there is nothing that can be done about it! so i opted not to go! oh i am sooo glad he is ok and so sorry Katie was involved if that is the case :o(


I love it when people talk back...
