How I Spent My Monday
On Monday, I took the day off to spend time with the kids, since Miss. E. was on fall break. I kept Little Man home from daycare as well so we could enjoy the day together. No, I didn't have a fantastic day at the museum or zoo planned. Well, I wanted to try the zoo, but it finally rained after weeks of drought - of course - so we took to a trip to the grocery, visited my mom and then took Mom to her physical therapy appointment. The kids really enjoyed this part because it involved a visit to the hospital gift shop for a treat. Mom is making amazing progress. Her therapist is working to transition her from a walker to a cane. To think where she was in late May to now is a true miracle.
Anyhoo, after my kids wreaked havoc at the physical therapy gym (don't get my son around those giant exercise balls - you're only asking for trouble), we headed home to get Miss E. dressed for her class's Halloween party. It was supposed take place at one of the parent's homes, but given that it rained (again, seriously, of all the days that it finally rains) they moved it to one of the fire houses. So, we took Dorothy and her ruby slippers to the party. As you can see from the photo above, it's late October, yet my kids are still wearing summer clothes. Today it's a warm, stormy day. Batten down the hatches, folks.
We then returned home and met some more of our new neighbors who stopped by to drop off Halloween cookies. They seem very nice and I look forward to talking with them at our other neighbors' Halloween party on Saturday.
By the way, notice the doors in the photo? Yep, we did away with the yellow doors. Yes, they were cheerful, but not quite the color we wanted. Now we have the traditional black and I'm quite happy with the change. And those white things around the door are skeleton lights - they're actually pretty cool at night, but during the day, it's an odd look to say the least. :)
Happy Tuesday, folks. Hope you have a good one!
