Illness has struck the CCM household! I know it sounds dramatic, but aside from a few sniffles from me or hubs (not counting pregnancy related nausea) we have been relatively healthy here for the last… 4 years? Even when the Bear was diagnosed with shingles, she was fine. Until yesterday morning… BAM. 104 degree fever (via ear thermometer; 101 via underarm,) sore throat, sick baby Bear.
We’re heading into the home stretch with the gestation of Turkey! It’s kind of crazy to think that in 2-4 weeks (more or less) we’ll have a sweet smelling newborn again!
I need to find doll arms for part of a Halloween costume and it’s proving to be more challenging than I thought. Hubs had the great idea to just buy a baby doll from the store and amputate the arms. I don’t know why, but that thought just makes me sad! And what to do with the armless baby doll then?! (Honestly, the Dragonfly is such a baby doll lover that she would find no fault with an armless baby and love it to death.)
Last week we had a nice repreve from the heat. We had 2 glorious days of 60 degree weather. I had to giggle a bit at the native Californians bundled up (and I am not kidding.) But then the weather came back with a vengence. 100+ degrees earlier this week. Ugh.
I missed recording the latest Presidential Debate this week. It started at 6p here so I figured it was recording and I’d just watch it after the girls were in bed. Yeah, no. But I did learn one thing: Don’t count on your Facebook feed for debate recap. 50% of the posts were pro-Obama; 50% pro-Romney and 100% talked about how they are both liars. Hahaha!
Watching the debate was just going to be a bit of fun because I voted by mail last week.
A couple of my CathSorority Sisters are working on a new blog project and it would be awesome if you wanted to play along! It’s called “What I wore Sunday” and will consist of user submitted pics of their Sunday Mass/ Church Outfits. The thought is to give each other some new inspiration for Sunday outfits!
