I hope everyone has a wonderful, family and fun filled Thanksgiving.
I know I'm usually the pessimist, whining, complaining, wishing I had this or that, but I really am grateful with all I've been blessed with. I have a wonderful husband (though I admit I DID take the long road to finding him) 4 healthy and beautiful children, parents that I don't know what I'd do without, and friends (near and far) who mean the world to me.
We'll be spending tomorrow at my big brother's with the entire family. It'll be lots of fun and there will be tons of yummy food too; can't get better than that!

Crazy dog. Somehow she got the poof out of the bathtub and absolutely had a BLAST tearing it apart. Yes, it was naughty, and she normally gets scolded for such behavior....but for some reason this hit me as too cute and funny and I just grabbed the camera instead. Sometimes ya just gotta let them be kids I guess. I replaced the poof for a buck, the 5 month old Ally had fun with that one and all is well.
Nothing new around here really. Basketball has started up so I'm the mom-taxi lots and it's ok....mostly. She still has to take it slow until after xmas, but she's healing nicely and has a new titanium brace fitted specifically to her knee....she thinks it's cool....if it keeps that new ACL intact, I think it's cool too.
All 3 older kids got EXCELLENT progress reports. I was very happy. Crossing my fingers that report cards look as good. (please, please, please, please)
LittleE has started her first "bay-cation" as she calls it. Today was her last day of preschool until after Thanksgiving. She's been counting down the days, I'm not sure why. I'm not sure what exactly she thinks is going to happen, and when she realizes that it actually means that she can't go to school she's going to be pissed! Oy, what a kid.
Up to 6 hours of work, 5 days a week. After next week, I should be back to 8 hours. I'm ready, I'm PAST ready......grrrrrrrrrrrr
Jamie's work is going well too....I may actually have good news soon. I'm not going to jinx it and talk about it until it's 100% for really-reals!

My mind is centered on that right now, nothing more really, except day-to-day stuff.....
Soooooooooooo, what do you think about Florida?

Saw the surgeon today; 4 weeks post-op. He wanted to see me off it for another 4 weeks! HUH? I think he could tell by the look of "are you f__king kidding me?" on my face that it wasn't going to work for me. He compromised and said I can go back starting next week but only 4 hours a day. There's still a bunch of healing to be done and I have 2 toes that are numb (like I care) so he's a bit concerned. Will go back in another 4 weeks and hopefully everything will be fine.
The fun part? I get to wear my boot another 4 weeks! Jealous? I know....I have an extra for anyone who would like to make such a fashion statement.
Nothing else new. Jamie will be home saturday....YAY. The day after Halloween; which LittleE just realized today. She's sad about daddy missing her being Cinderella. She's been sick the last 2-3 days. YUCKY nose (gross) and fever. So she's not sleeping well....I'm tired! and so is she, lol.
Alrighty, have to go get the oldest from basketball.....have a great night!
