OK. We went from having the warmest Oct to SNOW and ICE!? WTF? I was in capris last week. We might even get 2-4 inches this weekend! BEFORE HALLOWEEN?! I planned this vacation just in time I think. Get out! I just cant believe it.
We went to our friends wake this week. Very hard. I wasnt at the funeral but my parents said Paul's brother spoke about Paul and mentioned ME. I had bought Paul a really soft blanket at Brookstones. He was very uncomfortable and this is the softest blanket around. I have one and love it. Paul's brother was there when I brought it over. Paul started to cry and said everyone was too good to him so in my ever so gentle way I told him to cut it out. LOL! He did so many nice things for everyone and it was just a blanket. He laughed at my yelling at him. Well the brother thought this was so great he told the story at the funeral in front of everyone. I would have been so embarrassed. Imagine yelling at a cancer patient. What kind of person would everyone think does that!
His wife did tell me that he LOVED the blanket and now she uses it every night. That blanket went a long way.
Off to work.
Awwww Sam that story brought tears to my eyes! (((HUGS))) I hear ya about the weather!
Not much going on here today. I'm bringing Emma into the doctors later. She's had a fever for a few days and is just super miserable. I'm not sure that she has an EI but I think she may but I want to get it checked out before the weekend! I would like to get some gym time this afternoon but we'll see how Emma is feeling and if P ends up going into work. I've been the last 3 days so if I don't go it won't be the end of the world. I think P may take the older kids to family swim tonight or maybe we'll carve the pumpkins.

The S word Sam? Seriously?????? Run, run as fast as you can!
Hope Emma feels better Melissa!
It's a dreary day today. Days like today make me want to take a nap! Guess that won't happen since I have too much to do. I'm looking forward to getting out pumpkins carved! I think I'm going to roast some pumpkin seeds too! YUM!
Sam, I"m very sorry to read about the passing of your friend. It sounds like you made his life better, and that of his family. You're a great lady and I'm blessed to know you. I was sorry to read about your grandmother. How's she doing today?
Melissa, I hope you can figure out what's wrong with Emma! Poor thing. I hope Percy let you get your workout this a.m. He owes you.
Love you ladies. xoxo
Brandi, you slipped in ahead of me! Have fun with the H'ween activities!
Yikes Sam! Snow? (((HUGS))) Sam, sweet story about the blanket.
Hope Emma feels better Melissa!
Good luck getting everything done Brandi! I completely forgot about carving pumpkins until now.
How are you ML?
Dakota was sick on Wednesday and Thursday and I have her home today just in case. It's her birthday party tomorrow and I need her to be healthy!!! She's seems fine today, even bouncing off the walls a bit.
I have to ice her cake this afternoon and clean the house. We're going out for a late dinner and leaving the kids with a sitter. I'm putting the girls to bed before we go and not telling them we're leaving because I need them to get a good sleep.
Then we have Dakota's birthday party tomorrow with 10 little girls and Rapunzel is coming to entertain for 1-1/2 hours! Yay!
Then Sunday we have dance, pumpking carving and Dakota's family birthday dinner! Busy busy!!!
