in the last week

We ordered and received little sister's car seat.

5 of us had eye appointments this week. That was one long afternoon.

I blogged a total of two times, including this post.

I've stayed up way too late several nights trying to get stuff done on that never-ending to do list.

I've apologized to the kids more times than I can count this week.

I requested 4 books from the library this week. Why you ask? I don't know; I'm guessing I think I'll have lots of time to read in the car, plane, and train this month.

We've frozen our bums off in the early mornings and late evenings because we took out the old heater system in the first floor. Our replacement heater will be installed soon. (We still have heat in the upper level so if we get too cold, we just stay upstairs.)

I made an Elsa costume and 2 spooky ghost costumes at the very-last-minute.

My sewing machine decided to give me fits and say it was done at the very-last-minute.

Happy Halloween friends!!

in the last week

{Yes, I took this picture!!}

I packed baby bottles and size 2 diapers in the suitcase. Size 2!

We bought the two older kids their winter coats. On sale, of course.

I've thought about starting to sew Joci's Halloween costume.

We've taken R to speech therapy 3 times, and we have been using those 30 minute waiting times to do some schoolwork (mainly read alouds).

If stacked all together in a small 12" square, our dirty laundry would be taller than myself. #workingonthatthisweekend

Out of the mouth of babes this week: "Me have a wiener. Mommy have a wiener too?"

Joe applied for a position in Kansas with the same company. Thus, moving closer to family is expected to be in our future-sometime.

Rylan & Owen both have ended up in our bed at least 4 times. Rylan always says "I had a bad dream." When asked about it in the morning, he tells us it was about a bear.

Joe painted the garage with a little help from the kids. He also tore/cut out all the pipes to the old heater system, tore out a closet to access the crawl space under the house, and cut down the boards from the closet to build a new garden fence.  #hardworker #proudwife
