Happy Thanksgiving!

Feline: I hope you went with the black. It's a nice neutral.

How was the catered breakfast? And I trust lunch at least had sprinkles.

I told Brenna that you aren't supposed to know who the Santas really are, so we keep it a secret. Not everyone is a Santa so we can't blow our cover. But I think adopting a senior to be Santa for is an excellent idea.

If you can't find a list most nursing homes will tell you who's up for a visit. They usually like general toiletries since the family is supposed to provide "special" soaps and shampoos. Not to mention powder, lotion or deodorant. Fruit is usually welcome or some candy. Jimmy's Mamaw uses to swear chocolate cut the taste of bitter medication and kept a small stash of Hershey kisses in a drawer. Socks were a big item on the lists. I think they get lost in the laundry a lot. Our local ones have a tree in the front with a name and a wish shortlist. The list is usually less than $20. You could call or email the activities director and ask.

I hope you all have a wonderful day. We are headed to my SIL's for lunch. The other SIL has to be at work at 2 pm, so an early lunch it is!

Eva: I'd heard about the most recent e-coli outbreak, but it hasn't affected my salads before so I guess I was just surprised.

Our daycare closed today because of weather (a little prematurely, we think) - it was raining, snowing, icing, and sleeting last night but the weather seems fine today. So little man is helping grandma with Thanksgiving preparations today. It also meant that we didn't pass any gas stations along the way for me to get lunch...so DH took me to Dunkin to grab donuts for lunch emoticon My work is catering in breakfast, so at least I'll have a fairly healthy breakfast. It's usually bacon, sausage, eggs, hashbrowns, some sort of quiche, fruit, and pastries so that's what I am expecting this morning.

I've seen the suggestion before that we're all Santa, and I like that premise. I'll have to take a look at that book - I like the idea of teaching him about Santa as a person, and that we're carrying on his tradition with the spirit of giving. When I worked for the school district we would adopt a nursing home and buy gifts for all the seniors, I bet I could find a nursing home wishlist online somewhere and someone on it would love a gift and visit from a little boy around Christmastime. I'll just have to carefully teach him that part of the spirit of Santa is not ruining the belief of others who think he's real, once he's off to school.

My work is letting us leave two hours early today, so DH and I are going to return a broken Diaper Genie and I am going to paint my nails. I won't do as good a job as a professional, but I haven't painted my nails since little man was born and I'd like them to look nice for Thanksgiving. I plan on wearing my jeans and a nice burgandy blouse tomorrow so I think I'll paint my nails either black or red. Black would look nice with the shoes I wear all the time, and if I remember right it's a dark red so that might look nice with the shirt. I am leaning towards the black, though.

Feline: Salads with "Salinas" on them have all been recalled. That might be why no salads were there. There was an e.coli contamination.

Ahh. My DH learned several years ago just to take what I put in his box and hush because he feels better LOL.

Who doesn't love a good donut? Our farmers market has fresh Amish donuts cooked on the spot. It's a huge yeast donut with a simple glaze and it's WARM when you get it. That thing is like kryptonite. So I admit I get one at the market.

On Santa, I always told Miss B the origin of Santa. Then I told her that while the original Santa is no longer with us his spirit lives on, the spirit of giving without expectation of receiving. So she knew Santa was a person that just had the spirit of giving in their heart. For a long time when she was little that meant, to her, putting money in the red kettle because she wanted to be Santa too. Then she figured out that her parents were her Santa. It was official last year but she questioned it a year earlier. I told her now that she knows the secret it's time for her to be someone's Santa. Sometimes that means buying something and putting it into a Toys for Tots bin. Sometimes that means adopting a kid from an angel tree or a senior from the Silver tree at the nursing home. It depends on what we can afford that year. Last year, since all the kids in the extended family knew about Santa we all got together and adopted a kid from our school that's family was in need but did not meet the financial requirements to be on an angel tree. This year it's a donation to RIFA's holiday snack pack program and adding to an angel tree family adopted at Mom's work. If the family decided to adopt a child from school again, we will do that as well. I've also taught her the origins of many traditions, like why we put out Christmas lights and put up trees. Both pre-date Christianity. We've discussed the other winter celebrations as well, like Hanukka and Kwanza. Anyway here is the origin story for Santa. I used one that is similar.

I also taught her the story of Babushka. So the gift giver isn't always Santa.

documents/2010/TheStoryOfBabushka.pdf


This book is the one we have. The legend of Babushka is in here, as is the legend of the Poinsettia. It does not have the story of St. Nicolas, but King Wenceslas is in here. His song is somewhat of a "Santa" story. It contains the Christmas story, exerts from Little women and Anne of Green Gables, plus children's version of the Gift of the Magi, and A Christmas Carol. It also have a bunch of Christmas songs and Poems.

When Little Man goes to school there will be some sort of holiday celebration at school. Our teachers have classroom elves that show up the Monday after Thanksgiving. So keep in mind that when he goes to school he's going to have a lot of questions if he doesn't really know the legend of Santa at the very least. Heck, even my in-laws' church has Santa show up the night they do their Christmas play. They literally sing, "Here comes Santa Clause" every year. We didn't have Santa appear in my church as a child, it was a strange experience for me the first time I saw it.

The tooth fairy and the Easter Bunny are a little easier to let go. Most people don't ask what the Easter Bunny brought, but they do ask what Santa brought.

I want to be clear I'm not pressuring you either way. Your little guy still has this Christmas and next before he really gets the concept of Christmas or will grasp who/what Christmas is supposed to be about. Right now it's just shiny and eye-catching. Next year it will just be about paper and boxes. Nothing is more fun than playing in the boxes at 18 months old. You have plenty of time. I was just sharing how I handled it so that it wasn't just some creepy old man shooting down your chimney and she had her own answers when Santa came up at school.

Miss B only has 2 tests left to make up. She can do that on Monday, because of the holiday. The new principal doesn't allow teachers to hold kids back for tests if they earned a reward for fundraising. Yesterday was the celebration for PTO fundraising. Miss B hit her mark so so got to go to the gaming truck. She won her round of just dance and played laser tag in the blue gym. She held her own in Minecraft after she figured out the Xbox controller. We have a Switch, so different sets of controls. Today she works on her ornaments she's giving as gifts and helping me food prep for tomorrow. She's at a fun age where she wants to learn how special holiday foods are prepared. I love it!

Eva: Yep, Emergen-C is a big dose of vitamin C. You're only supposed to take one packet per day. I told DH to get a big box so he could take some too, since he started feeling sick last night, but he got a small box just for me because he doesn't believe vitamin C does anything. So when I am sick for 3 days and he's sick for 2 weeks I'll just be quietly smug.

While DH was getting the Emergen-C he swung by produce to grab me some salads for the rest of the week, but they were completely out! No salads at all! So we hit the gas station again this morning and I will have another egg salad sandwich for lunch. I also got a burrito for breakfast - their burrito has jalapenos in it so it sounded good. My work is having a snack day today, and thinking it'd be like the last one (bowls of chips and cookies) I ate the whole burrito. The HR secretary came in early and when I commented on it she said it's because she has to meet the vendors for snack day - a whole bunch of donuts! My burrito was probably the better breakfast option, but I do love a sprinkled donut.

DH and I were discussing today about how we're going to approach holiday myths with little man. I am uneasy treating Santa and other myths as though they were real, and DH agrees with me to some extent but also has concerns about how a child might see every story as real and it would be difficult to explain the difference when they're still so young.

Little man is 6 months old today! He discovered his voice last night and has decided that yelling is the new fun thing to do. He was yelling from when we got home to when I put him to bed - he wasn't unhappy though, he'd be smiling, too. He'd yell at the TV, at me, at the cat, at the window, at dad. The daycare said he was grumpy all yesterday, and he was extra fussy this morning, so I wonder if a tooth isn't getting ready to pop through.

Feline: In the winter months I take a vitamin C supplement all winter because I really feel like it helps keep me from catching stuff in the first place. Emergen-C is a mega-dose of vitamin C is it not? I hope you feel better.

Your little guy is so cute! I love that grin!

At least DH apologized for his mistake. That's good progress. Maybe he'll pay attention more. Having a baby does make a man grow up and pay attention. It did Jim, but it's a slow process. But then what isn't?

At least you expect to get fussed at because Chapter 2 is short. It is what it is, and you'll have it ready by the deadline.

Miss B has half her tests made up. It was good work for the hour she had to work with. Hopefully today they make time for her to finish the other 2 tests she missed. If not she actually has until next Thursday to get it all done before she can be docked for it.

I finished sanitizing the house yesterday. I feel like a germaphobe but I promise I'm not. Anyway, that means I get to have some down-time today. Miss B is out of school 3 days this week for the holiday. Jim is off 2 days this week for the holiday and 3 days next week to use up his vacation days. So that means I will have little to no quiet time this week or next. So today unless it's the school, Jimmy, or my mom I doubt I answer the phone. I need quiet to prepare for the onslaught of the holiday whirlwind.

Eva: My drafts are due 11:59pm on Sunday, but to avoid difficulties with time zones I turn them in on Saturday evenings. Since I got the email Friday afternoon that didn't leave me much time to work on a new chapter draft, especially since I'd spent three days on those drastic revisions. Chapter two is supposed to be 30-70 pages long but I only got seven pages written. Technically I now have 18 weeks to write chapters two and three since I finished chapter one six weeks early, so I went ahead and just turned in the seven pages on Saturday. I'll probably get a strongly worded review telling me it's way too short, but eh. I can add on to it week by week.

I know my paternal grandma will be absolutely thrilled to have a photo, and my paternal aunts will, too. My BFF has even specifically asked she be included in any photo gifting so she can fill up her fridge. I thought the photos would be a good idea for most people. My cousin won't care about photos so we're getting him a utility tomahawk instead, and my niece is of course too young to care so I have a huge list of toys and clothes to pick gifts from for her. I know what I want to get her but with the holidays the price jumped up to $75!

DH has never tried Lara Bars, but I told him they are his so we'll see if he snacks on them. He was sad for me that I couldn't have them, and apologized about the salad. He said he remembered about the almonds this time - he went to the store yesterday and the only salad they had was Spinach Dijon so he didn't get it. We popped by a different gas station this morning and they had egg salad sandwiches, which are my favorite, so I very happily grabbed one for my lunch.

I did a little mini photo shoot on Saturday until he spit up on his Christmas outfit, lol. I spent about 20 minutes making him laugh and smile for the camera and got two good pictures. One of them was more posed and suitable for a card, but I went with the other one because I just love the crooked grin. The front of the card says "Joy" on it and his smile just says joy to me.


I woke up this morning with a sore throat, which is always a precursor to getting sick for me. I think I will ask DH to pick me up some Emergen-C. There's no proof it actually helps, but for me it's helped at least cut down the length of time I am sick. Maybe if I start taking it now it will nip this cold before it gets bad. Hopefully I can still make it to Thanksgiving!

Feline: I'd be frustrated to no end about the paper. It's hard to stay on schedule if your advisors are all behind.

The pictures are a good idea, but some of the Black Friday ads are available online on Thursday and Friday. Most have free shipping or store pick up. Just a thought from one anxiety-ridden mom to another. But for the record moms love pictures for gifts. Grandmas love them even more.

Will DH eat the Lara Bars?

I figure people eat pretty much the same thing on the holiday no matter where you are. Unless you're my friend Tonja. Someone always makes lasagna and a pot roast lol.

Did you get your picture for the card?

Miss B is better. I picked up her makeup work packets on Friday. She finished yesterday. We studied for the makeup tests and will do so again today. I thinks he will be done by Tuesday afternoon. Anyway the Lysol cloud is about gone. Thank goodness for that.

I just checked my school email before settling down to revise my introduction over my lunch, and I received a congratulatory email from my chair on passing my first chapter! It was sent this morning, so I guess the rubrics took longer to update and it was old data? Or something. But all those drastic revisions were for nothing emoticon

Eva: He doesn't read labels (and that salad is one I've specifically mentioned not being able to eat in the past), but, to be fair, I asked for the Lara Bars. I'd heard good things about them and looked up a list of flavors online and they sounded yummy. I should have checked the ingredients online before telling him I wanted them, though, especially since the label says they are "fruit and nut bars". Dates are becoming a more common ingredient in health food items, where before it was an allergy I only really needed to worry about with my MILs fruit salad or when eating tapas I now need to keep a closer eye on ingredient lists.

We're in the midwest, but that sounds fairly similar to what my grandma used to make when she did big Thanksgiving dinners. She'd make deviled eggs, two kinds of stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, ham wraps, pinwheels, two kinds of gravy, olives and pickles, cranberry sauce, and several desserts. I'd usually make grape salad and pumpkin fluff, and sometimes a second green bean casserole since we get pretty close to having duels over my grandmas green bean casserole. I miss the big holiday dinners, but she's not up to doing them anymore. We (my brother, dad, and I) have offered to bring the food to her a few times but she always turns us down. One of these years I'll probably end up hosting Christmas - we even have a table with enough seating as long as extended family doesn't join - but the house is definitely not clean enough for that right now. I don't know that she's quite ready to give up hostessing altogether yet, but my SIL has already made comments about me taking over the family get-togethers for her.

I have my rescheduled therapy session tomorrow, and I need to get a photo of the baby in his Christmas outfit for our Christmas card. The 50% off sale ends on the 26th but it gets dark so early that it's dark when we get up and when we get home, so I haven't been able to do it during the week. I want to take the photo when there's some natural light coming in from the window, so I'm hoping to get that done tomorrow or Sunday so I can get those cards ordered. We have our family photos on the 30th, but DH is having second thoughts about them. He doesn't think anyone will care about them or want them and he's upset that we can't afford for him to get a haircut before the photos so he doesn't feel like he will be looking his best (I think he looks fine and actually think he cuts his hair too often, and feel like my hair is the shaggy mess). I offered to cancel the photo appointment and go out on Black Friday (which with my anxiety AND a baby was a huge offer) to get the best deals for everyone on our list, my grandma and aunt love to Black Friday shop and I know they would be thrilled to take me with them. He told me not to do that, but kept grumbling about the photos. Now he's got me worried that they were a terrible idea.

Feline: I'm sorry about the paper. Your chair is less than helpful. Geeze.

DH doesn't read labels does he? I mean for your allergens? I'm sorry that he forgot to order your breakfast. That salad sounds good, but I'd be scared of the almonds being CC for Miss B. And a definite no for you.

What screams Thanksgiving besides turkey? Our family does deviled eggs, cornbread dressing (others like stuffing), broccoli and rice casserole, green beans sauteed with bacon and onions, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, corn, English peas, a "Coke-cola" ham, a pickled plate, Mac and cheese, and cranberry sauce. I'm not sure that list helps you help MIL or not. Keep in mind that's a southern thanks giving. And I left out the dessert table.

Miss B's teachers are getting her makeup work together for me to pick up later this morning. Her fever broke in the early hours yesterday morning, but I'm not calling her fever free until today is over. The school is tracking the kids that are out. We must be closing in on shut down numbers.

Jim is home today. He waiting on the cable internet people while I go do the shopping. We will be watching movies this weekend. Miss B will stay inside unless we get a wild hair to go look at the lights in Pringles Park.

Eva: I had heard about e-sports scholarships. When I was in college I heard about a university that was offering a class on the economics of World of Warcraft and I was so jealous.

My dermatologist office is kind of like that, but it's the doctor that is not all there. He's very nice but the nurse rules the roost and keeps everything running. She sets the appointments, runs everyone to their rooms, checks the patients in, does the preliminary part of the appointment, fills out the prescription refills, and guides the doctor to the rooms. The doctor mostly just chit chats and signs the prescription pad. He's gotten pretty old and should probably retire - he's cut his offices and hours down already.

That sucks that Miss B is sick again! Hopefully she's just getting it out of the way before the holidays. Nobody wants to be sick for the holidays.

DH took baby to a watch party last night, and it started raining heavily. He couldn't figure out the carseat cover so he came home after and plopped the sleeping baby in his carseat on the bed and immediately left to get some groceries. I left baby in the carseat for about an hour before making him a bottle for the inevitable waking and taking him out. Shockingly he did NOT wake up! So it was a wasted bottle. But I discovered this morning that while DH got himself a 48-pack of his favorite poptarts he forgot to get me anything for breakfast, so I am having more poptarts. He got me some salad for lunch, but he got me Spinach Dijon salad - spinach makes me sick to my stomach and I am allergic to almonds. I was going to grab the Lara Bars he got me as a morning snack since the poptarts don't fill me up, but the first ingredient in them is dates, to which I am highly allergic. Sigh.

We're having Thanksgiving at the in-laws and she usually serves turkey, but with such a large crowd this year (14 people) I am wondering if she's going to make multiple turkeys or make something else? Since she was asking me about what "screams" Thanksgiving I am thinking she's probably aiming for a traditional turkey dinner. I have a feeling she'll be cooking for days! For Christmas my mother usually does spaghetti and my grandmother and in-laws both do soup, but since we're doing New Years at my mother's this year instead of the bowling alley with friends (I don't think the little one is quite ready for the noise and crowd of a bowling alley at midnight) my mother decided to do turkey since we're doing spaghetti for New Years. I'm making green bean casserole for both Thanksgiving and my mother's Christmas - I have a recipe for a Creole sausage and green bean casserole that is very good, but DH thinks I should stick to a traditional casserole. He is probably right.

I got the results of my second formal dissertation review back yesterday...and there were NO comments. Just a "does not meet expectations" grade and rubrics. So I guess I am supposed to just figure it out on my own now. I have 6 more weeks, including this week, to get it up to par. Between my chair and the SME, based on the rubrics they attached, they thought the whole thing was a mess. So that's nice. I worked on it over my lunch yesterday and made edits to the whole thing. I think the only thing left that still needs significant edits before I turn it in again is the introduction. I liked my introduction a lot, but they've had issues with it since the beginning, so I think I'm going to just have to rewrite it.

Feline: Baby maybe an athletic geek. Who knows! You know they have e-sports scholarships now?

We have a drawer of chords! It follows us like a lost puppy. I think it's a man thing. Jim cleaned his out a couple of years ago. There were chords he had no clue what they went to 20 years ago...

Mom set her doctor straight. Her appointment had to be rescheduled earlier in the month because he had a seminar he was going to. The called in meds were to just cover the gap. He usually hand writes his prescriptions. He finally admitted that his nurse dropped the ball. The chief of medical staff was there when the conversation was going on. He did not seem pleased. I'm betting that nurse is put back into the walk in clinic rotation. She's nice, but not well suited for the primary Care clinic.

Thank you about Miss B's picture. It is an albino praying mantis. We have a bunch hatch in the back yard. They are rather small. We also have large brown ones and tiny green ones and then you standard mantis. They love her. She'll lean on a tree and the sit on her shoulder. She jokes that they live here because they think Jim is Po lol.

Miss B didn't get to be a photojournalist yesterday. She instead got to be a flu victim. She woke up with a temp and a headache. I took her to our clinic. It's Flu B. She's home until Monday. So I'm living in a Lysol cloud.

My niece is home until Monday with strep. They are the same age and we're comparing illnesses yesterday, like old ladies. I told them if they wanted to play hookie we could have done better than this. They laughed.

Eva: You know what, I do have an old phone. I completely forgot I had it and it's just sitting on a set of drawers gathering dust. I bet DH even has its charger somewhere, too. He's the kind of techy that just has bags of cords that follow us everywhere for no discernable reason, lol. I had to refill the diaper bag this morning so I set baby down on the couch with my phone (closed in its case) and he was thrilled. It has a dangling cord on it and it's a faux leather case so it's great for baby gripping. He was just sitting there happily turning it around in his hands and pulling on the cord.

DH is bound and determined for baby to love technology as much as he does. Ever since we found out we were having a boy he's dreamed of him being a geek like him. I asked him what he'd do if we end up with an athlete (he's VERY physically strong and an active little boy, so it's a distinct possibility) and he sighed and said he guesses he could handle signing him up for a sport. He's against anything like Boy Scouts though, which purely from a moral standpoint I can understand. Boy Scouts has not had the best publicity.

Your mom should move here. I get refills at every appointment - I now have three bottles of one of my prescriptions because my pharmacy just fills the prescription every time a refill is sent in! One in my purse, one by the couch, and one by my bed. Can't forget that prescription, it's everywhere.

My niece got to take a stuffed animal to school yesterday. I don't know if it was part of a spirit week or not, though. But she chose to take a stuffed Pusheen doll I got her during our special date before the baby was born. Her mom messaged me to say everyone loved the doll and that my niece was super happy and wanted to tell me thank you again.

Career Day is a cool idea for spirit week. We always had something like pajama day or crazy shoe day, lol. That's a pretty awesome picture, too. Is that a praying mantis? I've never seen one that color before.

Baby is a Gemini, and even at 5 months I can tell he is very much a Gemini. He's so talkative and dramatic. He loves attention and interaction, and I won't be surprised at all if his activities reflect this in the future. What I've read says Gemini boys will be huge jokesters, filled with wanderlust, and smart as a whip.

Feline: Do you happen to have an old phone with no service? You could take it to where there's free wi-fi and download his apps if you don't have wi-fi or a hotspot at home. then Baby could play his app when he gets a bit grabby.

I think apps have their place (it's awesome to learn letters and numbers by sight), but when Baby is old enough to start to write and color, make sure he does those things to build motor skills. There's a new issue with kids going into kindergarten. They don't have the motor skills to hold a pencil or crayon. So as long as you balance his app time with real playtime I think it's not a bad idea. Life is not going to get less technology-based anytime soon. Miss B had a kid's tablet when she was small. They are made to take a drop better than your cell phone.

Mom is headed to the doctor this morning for her check-up. It's a good thing I'm not going. I'm afraid I'd show my @$$ since his nurse failed to call in 3 of her meds. One of which was her fluid pill. When the pharmacy and mom called the office to let them know, they still were never called in. I'll be helping her pick a new clinic before the end of the year. I'm usually pretty mellow, but that's ridiculous.

Miss B. has spirit days at school. Today is career day. She said she wanted to be a photojournalist. So I dug out a camera that doesn't work and made her a fake press pass. You know it's totally in her wheelhouse, and as much as I'd hate to see her be far from home, I think it's a job she would actually love. It'd be awesome is she ended up working for something like National Geographic one day.

She took this picture with cell phone not too long ago.

Eva: I don't mind the poptarts too much, they're the right amount of calories for my medicine. They're just not very filling since they have no protein! I'm hoping for more Kroger sandwiches. Paired with the yogurts that was a nice breakfast with a great amount of protein.

Baby had a surgical follow-up yesterday and a follow-up hearing test this morning. He looks good, we just need to be more consistent in using a humidifier at night and a nasal spray after he eats to help with his mucus build-up. He passed his hearing test today, so yay! He needs a swallow test, but DH took him to yesterdays appointment and didn't ask what the swallow test was for so I don't know why he needs it. And he'll get a follow-up sleep test in January. First week of December is his next well visit with his pediatrician, he'll get shots (yuck) and we'll talk about starting him on solids (yay). I've been seeing a lot of the moms in my Facebook groups doing baby led weaning instead of purees, so I might have DH ask the pediatrician what she thinks about that.

I have a pile of books I want to read, but baby is in a very grabby stage so I don't think I can get anything read right now. He's especially fascinated by my phone so I can't even browse Facebook while he plays on my lap anymore! If he can see my phone he's reaching and grabbing for it. DH has downloaded some baby game app for his phone and when I hand him off to shower or something he lets him play with it. I have some concerns about screen time so young, but it's very interactive and it's only, like, 10 minutes.

I'd like our garage cleaned out sometime, too. A portion of it is items that I had put in a giant box for donation, but that my husband forgot were for donation so he bought a shelf for and took out of the box. So we have a shelf of useless things.

Kali: Was DH able to drive himself to therapy? Bless his heart. I'm so glad to hear you both are doing better. He's still in my prayers.

Miss. B is growing up on me. She's going to be a lovely woman one of these days.

Feline: My ex-husband was like you DH. Everyone was a quack. I hope tomorrow you can make a grocery order with your choice of foods that don't make you feel like crap.

I'm glad Baby Boy is doing so well! When is his next check up?

You needed a wasted day.

Oh we love Descendants! I've seen all 3. The first one has the best music, for the record. The parents for all the villain kids, except Mal, are just random normal humans. Mal's dad is as special as her mother, and you'll find out in 3 that she's been lied to about her father being just another normal human. I'm a geek I read the books too.

Jim was home yesterday. He took a random vacation day. He actually used it to clean the garage! He was out there most of the day. Now we can get his work van and my car both into the garage! That's a project I've asked him to help me with for a year. Yesterday he just wanted to know where to take the stuff, recycle, dump, or donate. It was a proud wife moment!

Eva: DH is against medicine in general, but especially psychology/psychiatry. He thinks they're all quacks out to steal your money. He would absolutely never agree to talk to someone.

Breakfast today was poptarts again. We get paid on the 20th at midnight and hopefully I can get something else then, but for now it's either the Jimmy Dean sandwiches or some of DHs poptart stash. Breakfast was a lot easier when I could just drink a protein shake!

Kali: I am glad your husband is feeling better.

I didn't work out on Saturday. I caught up on my shows, cleaned a little, then fell asleep until my husband got back. It was a pretty wasted day in all. Baby boy let me sleep in until 7 though, which was shocking. But he was back up at 4:30 on Sunday. We had to go to church on Sunday so he was awake from 4:30 until about 11:15, when he fell asleep while I was feeding him. He slept the few minutes it took us to drive to the restaurant where we were having lunch with my in-laws, then woke up when a child there began shrieking at the top of her lungs in the waiting area. He was awake the entire time we were there and then fell asleep again around 1:00 when we were on the way home. Napped a good 2.5 hours in his carseat and then woke up starving! While I was feeding him he got kitty cuddles, which was exciting because the kitty usually doesn't like to get close enough to be touched by the baby but he was rubbing his head on the bottle and snuggling right up to my little man. It was a very happy lunch.

We watched Descendants 1 and 2 last night. They were fun movies, and we will watch the 3rd movie when it's available, but the baby and I agreed the songs were kind of boring. DH was trying to figure out who their other parents were, but I don't think that's something that can be figured out.

Eva - so agree with the show hole - actually started reading again.
Love 'Miss B' - sounds like her life is blossoming.

Feline - I agree - the non-profit might work...

We finished (I hope) a whirlwind of medical experiences - ER, hospital, rehab and now therapy. Drug interactions are nothing to mess with and a few days of bed rest really mess with strength and stability. The nurses couldn't believe we didn't have assistive devices @ home...
DH drove for the first time yesterday (just around the neighborhood and to the car wash) but if he's feeling up to it, will drive to PT (a mile and not during rush-minute) this morning.
50 degree weather is allowing some much needed yard work to occur!

Hope all is well with you!

Feline: DH has some growing to do. He'll get there. If talking to your therapist about him makes you feel better, the go do it. If not let it be. I'd suggest a couples tune up but men hate that.

But I think bringing up the non-profit again couldn't hurt.

I hope you have a better day and maybe you found a different breakfast than Jimmy Dean sandwiches. The mess with me stomach too.

Eva: I rescheduled for next Saturday at 10, well before the 2:30 game. I don't know that I will have anything to talk about next week either, but at least the time works out. Someone in another group thinks I should talk to her about my husband, but he's been the topic of conversation a few times and I know exactly what she will say.

I was looking for online jobs and I found a few, some were even part-time, but I am worried about trying to fit a second job into my schedule. DH has more time for that, but when I brought up him getting a side hustle he said he'd rather let us die than get a side hustle. His field has more online opportunities than mine so there are lots of things he could do from home, he just won't. My therapist suggested a nonprofit we could call to help us get out of debt and I told DH about it, and he said he would consider it but hasn't spoken about it since. He said we're "doomed" this morning after looking at the budget sheet he has so I'd really like him to give them a call. I'd do it but I don't know anything about our financials so I can't.

I went to a musical while pregnant and he definitely liked the experience. I'd been getting worried because he wasn't moving, but when the music got going he got wiggling.

I got in another video this morning. It made me late again by a few minutes, but the sandwiches kept making me really sick so I just had poptarts today. Jimmy Dean is not my friend, I guess. But now I am exhausted - I am falling asleep at my desk!

Feline: If you haven't rescheduled you, therapist, I think you should. I would. Sometimes we don't need to talk to anyone. We just need the downtime to regenerate. I oftentimes think hashing out the same problem that isn't an easy fix makes it worse instead of better. I'm an avid believer in therapy, but I am also a believer in that self-healing time. And for Momma's that stuff is in REALLY short supply.

Besides, while you relax you might have an epiphany of how to ease your financial woes. I know my best ideas come when I'm relaxed.

I wonder what Baby Boy would think of an actual musical, Just from the music standpoint.

Last night we tried the Mandalorian. I liked it and I think it will get better. Jimmy and I are in a "show hole" My favorites were canceled (Big Bang Theory) or are in their last seasons(Supernatural). So I'm in search of a new line up. Through the week we go to bed early, so movies are difficult to fit in. He has to be at work by 3:30 am and 2:30 am comes EARLY. He's falling asleep by 7 pm. Miss B and I tend to tuck him in, then go read to each other or just talk for about an hour. I know it seems weird that I swap off reading with an 11-year-old(most don't want to read with mom at this age), but I choose the material (mostly mythology) and have discovered that while she reads on a 12th-grade level, occasionally we get to add a word or 2 to her vocabulary. So I think it's beneficial, and we both enjoy it. Anyway, I leave her about 8 and then we read our separate books until around 9. It works well for us. Anyway, I suppose I could stay up and watch something, but I sleep better if I just go read.

I'm currently reading one of Miss B's books by Sharon Draper. It's called "Out of My Mind." It's about a girl with cerebral palsy and non-verbal but is extremely intelligent. Her family gets her a device that "talks" for her. I'm assuming she makes it on the academic team, to the surprise of her teachers and classmates. I'm enjoying it.

Miss B is headed to a school dance tomorrow night. She's ready and today I'm headed out to do the shopping. I plan to enjoy myself this morning. Last week was difficult as I got the call that my neighbor passed while I was picking out potatoes.

Eva: We watched Moana last night. Baby loved the music at the beginning of the movie, but fell asleep before "Shiny". I had wanted to see his reaction to the glittery crab!

I want to fit in my clothes again, but I also want my heartburn to go away again and my knees not to hurt. I had planned to do another Leslie Sansone video this morning, but DH woke up half an hour late so I didn't get to work in enough time. I suppose I could have done just a mile or two and still been okay, but I wasn't too worried about it since I have a strength training class this afternoon. I'll plan on doing another video tomorrow morning.

I got an alert in my email reminding me I have therapy on Saturday. The game starts at 11 and my therapy starts at 12, so DH has to skip watching it at his parents and I don't get the me time I was so looking forward to. I offered to see if my therapist had an earlier time but DH was already texting his dad that he couldn't make it Saturday. I don't really have anything to talk to my therapist about other than the usual "I'm so stressed because we're poor" woes, so I am tempted to just cancel. I really want that me time!

Feline: We signed up too!!! I was so excited to see Disney + offerings. And I discovered some of the old movies, like the Apple Dumpling Gang, Jim's never seen. I almost fell off the couch.

It sounds like DH means well, but he doesn't understand that losing weight isn't about losing your chub so much as it's about how you feel physically. I have to remind mine that it makes my joints creak less.

When baby stuff was everywhere I took my workouts outside if I could. I also made a list of standing exercises and reps so I didn't need more than the space of a kitchen chair. I don't know if that's helpful or not. But I'll tell ou standing up and sitting down with the baby in your arms is a game to him or here and a heck of a work out for you.

Miss B. has decided to go to the winter informal. Which isn't in winter. It's this Saturday. I love that she wants to be social at school events. Now I need to pick her up a small handbag to keep her phone and epi-pens in that zips. The one she used at the last dance kept popping open.

Eva: The new meds aren't supposed to have as high a risk of weight gain as the old ones, but it is still a side effect. But I've also been eating poorly and only working out during my classes, so that's probably the bigger factor. I told myself I'd do a Leslie Sansone video this morning - I turned in this weeks edits for class yesterday so had no excuse not to do one. And I did! I was cutting it real close to when I had to be at my desk, and after heating my breakfast sandwich ended up being 4 minutes late, but I did a full 3-mile video. It was actually kind of fun, too.

The men on DH's side are pretty average, but I've got a few on my side that broke past the 6' mark, so he has quite a range he could grow to if we're looking at family history. What I've read says children tend to be an average of their parents for height, though, so since my husband and I are both average I'm guessing my little man will be on the average side as well.

DH remembered my breakfast sandwiches when he ordered groceries, but he got regular Jimmy Dean sandwiches instead of the light Kroger sandwiches. When he was apologizing he grabbed my stomach and shook my chub, saying "That's alright, isn't it?". I didn't really know how to react to that. I also spotted ice cream and a frozen pizza in the freezer, and when I was grabbing the salads he got me for my lunches I didn't see any dinner ingredients in the fridge (like chicken or veggies). I noticed on the counter he got some olive oil so he must have a plan for something but I have no idea what it could be since he didn't buy anything to use the olive oil with.

I was checking the forecast here and it's supposed to warm up to 49 on Saturday, so if it does I might think about taking a walk around the neighborhood. DH is taking the baby to his parents for the football game so I'll have a few hours to myself. Or I could do one of the videos I have at home. It's kind of hard now with baby stuff all over the floor - his bouncer and play mat and sit-me-up take up a lot of room, but I could probably pile them up on the couch for half an hour.

Disney+ rolled out yesterday, I read in the news that it crashed during the day and a lot of people had trouble getting into it (DH said he read 25% of the issues were in our state!) but we got signed up and logged in just fine last night. I watched Inside Out with the little one and am excited about everything Disney+ is supposed to be rolling out.

Feline: Do you think it's the meds causing the gain? I know you said it was a serious side effect of some of your medications.

Your little man is GROWING! It's it wonderful? It sounds like he'll be as tall as you by the time He's Miss B's age or even taller.

At least DH took initiative. It might not be what you would have done, but I'm happy he tried.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with parents that are afraid of their phones. They even let me set up Google Assistant the last time they were here! I'm not sure what's going on in their world but I sure am happy about the change.

I'm going to take a day of quiet. I have Mrs. Jan's books sorted for distribution. I'll take care of that over the weekend. Today I pay bills, but I do it all from my desk. It might take 10 minutes.

Ariel, the dog, has been inside since Sunday. It's supposed to warm up in the daytime. I talked to Jim about keeping her inside at night through the winter. It looks like it might be a rough one. She's 7 years old and I'm afraid that even with winterizing her kennel that it might not be enough at her age. She's allergic to cats, so that will mean dosing her with Benadryl. I'm thinking this will be the best for her for this winter. I hope it works.

Eva: He is starting to catch up to height and weight for his age. He's just a little shy of the average now at 14lbs and 24.5 inches. I was comparing his height to mine yesterday, and I am amused that at 5 months he's already about 1/3 my height. He loves to sleep sprawled across my chest and it's like he's one of those prize ribbons - his head is at my shoulder and he crosses my chest at an angle with his feet draping over my hips.

DH told me Saturday that after paying our bills we were already out of money until the 20th. This morning he told me he'd done a grocery order, so I suspect he asked his dad for help. I usually make the grocery lists so I have no idea what it is he ordered.

My dad sent me and my brother a text the other night saying he finally got a smart phone! He says it didn't come with a guide on how to use it so he's still trying to figure it out. I'm excited for him, I think once he figures out the basics he'll really enjoy it. I've been trying to get my moms to get smart phones for years - my stepmom is keen on the idea, but my mom says she doesn't want a phone smarter than she is, so they've kept their flip phones. I even offered to add them to our family plan so they don't have to pay as much, but my mom is quite resistant to the idea of a smart phone.

I tried to put on one of my dresses this morning, I bought them before I got pregnant and basically lived in them while I was pregnant because they are maxi dresses. They're uncomfortably tight in the arms now. I already couldn't fit into my cardigans after the pregnancy because they're all a size small, but now I've lost an entire week of outfits with the maxi dresses. I really didn't want to have to buy new clothes but I might have to. I need to get back to my Leslie Sansone workouts in the mornings. I'm just so tired and unmotivated - but we definitely can't afford for me to buy new clothes, especially not new plus sized clothes so I need to nip this weight gain in the bud before it gets out of control.

Feline: I'm glad Baby Boy is feeling better!

Baby clothes are like women's clothes, no 2 brands are the same size. it's crazy!

If you have the extra cash, go to the notions section and buy skinny hemming tape. It irons in. You'll be thankful for it. You can roll the pants to the inside, add a little strip of the tape, and iron it down to make it fit him. I had to take darts in all of Miss B.'s pants because she was tall and thin. That was a nightmare.

I think Mrs. Jan had more fall injuries than were detected. The bruising on her right never faded. And it should have. The bruising on the left had begun to fade to green. She had a chest aneurysm that burst. I wonder if there was maybe some internal bleeding that was missed. I also know she had a concussion, but no one at the ER checked her for that. So I'm not surprised that they would miss something on the opposite side of her break.

Mr. Charlie has started planning what to do with her things. He's asked me to take care of her books. And asked for suggestions for her clothes. I gave him a couple. It seems soon, but he explained that their lives were so intertwined that he has to start now so that maybe he can move forward. I told him if he wants help to let me know. He's a good man. Overly practical. He said she wouldn't want her stuff to lay and waste. She'd want someone to benefit from it as soon as possible.

I got a nice surprise this morning when my mom *FINALLY* asked me to help her learn to text on her phone and to use the contacts to save seldom used phone numbers. We changed service providers. My old cell phone would work with her current provider so I just swapped the sim cards out to a phone with a better processor. I bought the same exact phone with the new provider, I like it so much. So this weekend I get to sit with her and show her step by step of how to make her phone work for her so her life is a little easier. I'm 100% sure that it's about to become a glorified Rolodex for the landline, but I don't care. I'm just glad she's agreeing to learn the features that will help her out in her daily life. She only agreed to get a smartphone in the first place because of the app she uses at work to request time off and verify timesheets.

Kali: I hope your husband is doing well!

Eva: He ate just fine for his grandparents on Friday, then would only take half bottles from me Friday night and Saturday, but Sunday started taking full bottles from me again. He took a full bottle at 5:00 this morning so we dropped him off at daycare and have our fingers crossed he'll take bottles for them.

He's growing so fast. His 3-6m pants are riding up his calves now so I had to order some 6-9m ones. We have family photos on the 30th so I hope his jeans will still fit by then, they're 3-6m. I don't know that we have enough on my Amazon gift card left to buy him another pair of jeans. His Thanksgiving outfit is too long in the arms but almost too short in the body and it's 6-12m. The pants that came with it are too long, though, I have to hike them up to his chest like a little old man and it covers the little turkey on his tummy on the onesie.

My chair told me to ask my SME, so I sent my SME another email. She said I shouldn't have to change my topic but to keep the need for relevance in mind. I spent a few hours Saturday making the revisions she had marked, mostly just adding more citations but also reorganizing and adding to my introduction.

I'm sorry to hear about your neighbor. Was it a complication from her surgery?

Yesterday the temperatures dropped into the 20s and it got windy, with snow falling overnight. It's expected to stay like this most of the week. Baby boy was grateful for his car blanket this morning!

Kali: I hope Dh is doing well in rehab. You are both in my prayers.

Hi Richard!

Feline: I'm so glad your friend is coming to Thanksgiving.

Is little man feeling better? Baby's often slow down on eating if they are teething. Particularly bottom teeth. It makes the belly feel "off." Freeze him a soft cloth and rub his gums before bottle time at home. It will help.

I hope you have good news from your chair. I'd be disappointed for you. You've come so far!

Friday morning while I was shopping I got a phone call that my friend and neighbor that had the shoulder replacement surgery died suddenly in her sleep. I was shopping for some things she needed at the time to survive the winter with an arm in a sling. It's been a long weekend. I've had more people reach out to me checking on me. It's been overwhelming. Particularly when her son that lives out of town asked if I was okay. This week I'll be going to check on her husband, once the family goes back home. Most of them live away from here.

Eva: We ran into a little hiccup yesterday. Baby boy was a slow eater at 5:30, but did finish his whole bottle. I got a call around 11:30 from the daycare saying they hadn't been able to get him to take any of his bottle! She said he was playing and sleeping fine, having plenty of diapers, but he was refusing his bottle and just playing with it. I called DH who said it could potentially be career ending if he left work at that time, so I called my FIL and asked if he could go try to make him eat. FIL managed to slowly get him to take a whole bottle, but when DH did pick-up daycare confirmed that was the only bottle he'd had the whole day. I got him to take half a bottle at dinnertime, then he woke up at midnight and sucked a whole one down in record time, but at 5:30 this morning he was back to taking only half a bottle. So he's with his grandparents today instead of daycare to see if they can coax him into eating a little more. He's teething and recovering from surgery so that might be all it is, because he seems happy enough, but if his grandparents can get him to finish a few bottles today I would feel better.

The subject matter expert emailed me back saying she submitted her comments on Halloween, so I told my dissertation chair who then said she had already submitted her comments, too! Complete reversal from what she'd said just the day before. So I went back into the submission center and looked at my submission and found their comments uploaded to my submission portal. Apparently the formal drafts don't work like the weekly drafts, where the system alerts you that comments have been uploaded and need your attention. You have to go in every day and check your submission to see if anything has been added to it. Extremely frustrating and when I ASKED my dissertation chair where to find the comments I wish she had just told me that. But what's really got me upset is that the subject matter expert left a comment, pretty much the first one, saying my dissertation may not be approved if the topic is not directly related to my program of study. When I did the enrollment interview I told them what I wanted to do my dissertation on, and I've told every teacher to date what I wanted to do my dissertation on since I worked my assignments around the topic, and nobody has told me there would be an issue with it. I sent my dissertation chair a kind of panicked email asking if I was really going to have to change my dissertation topic but she hasn't responded yet. I've worked incredibly hard to get to this point - I've even won a $20,000 grant related to my dissertation topic for once I graduate. I don't know that I have it in me to suddenly change gears and start all over. I'll have to wait and see what my dissertation chair says, then decide if I want to change topics or drop out if she says my topic really is a no go.

We asked my MIL about my friend coming to Thanksgiving this morning and she said sure. So that will make things a little easier for me, since I am not a fan of crowds. Although having the baby to focus on has helped in situations that usually trigger anxiety. I can just play and cuddle with him instead of focusing on myself. And now she doesn't have to spend Thanksgiving all alone in her apartment! Win-win. I bought the little dude a First Thanksgiving outfit but DH says it looks like it could fit a one-year old, so we'll have to try it on him tonight so I have time to exchange it if we need to. It came in unusual sizing, and since he's fitting in 6m clothes I chose the 6-12m size. I may have needed to select the 3-6m one instead. Amazon is usually pretty good about returns and exchanges, though.

It's getting cold here, too. We've had some snow and I've brought out my winter coat. I need to hunt down the warm jacket I bought the little one while I was pregnant - they were having a sale on winter clothes so I got him a nice 6m jacket that should fit him pretty well about now. It was definitely a fast change this year, I was wearing flip-flops and a light coat one day and then bam - real shoes and a winter coat!

Have fun shopping! That is one reason I want(ed?) a girl so bad. I'd love to go on shopping trips with a daughter. I suppose I will just have to make some more dates with my niece, that's a girly girl for sure if I've ever met one. I was talking to my mom the other day about maybe trying for a girl once my son is around 2, and she was joking I'd have to get three more jobs for all the sparkly pink things I'd be getting her.

Feline: I'm so glad to hear little man made it through his surgery well. Fingers crossed all of his post-surgery check-ups are good.

I hope you hear from your draft. That would tick me off just to be honest. It's been close to 2 weeks.

I think, asking FIL if your friend could come is a good idea. Maybe ask if you can help with anything while you're at it. I know DH said it irks his mother when you bring food but with extra people, a dessert or a horderve might be welcome if you ask first. Or even showing a bit early to be extra kitchen hands.

I'm off to do the shopping. It's cold here. I hate complaining about the cold in the south. I know people have much colder temps up north, but I think it's the quick change that gets me.
Yesterday I checked in on my MIL. I told her I'm taking Miss B. shopping tomorrow for clothes for Christmas. I have no idea what size to buy, so I have to have her try some of it on. I happen to have a coupon to MIL's favorite store. She asked if she could come! emoticon I almost fell off my chair! She never wants to go with us. I said of course! We have plans for a late lunch and then a little shopping. I'm glad she asked to go. But it was just unexpected.

Eva: Surgery went well. He had a bit of a rough time coming out of the anesthesia, and he slept very poorly in the hospital, but he was very happy to get home and see his kitty friends. He took a nice long 4-hour nap after we got home then fell asleep at his usual time and slept straight through the night. They didn't take his adenoids out so recovery is going to be pretty easy - he's pretty much already back to his normal self, just a little spitty from the discharge from his ears and throat. He's going to get a repeat hearing test in two weeks to make sure the tubes are working, and another sleep study to make sure the surgery fixed his breathing.

I submitted my formal draft to my school on my birthday, October 25th, and the paperwork for my dissertation says this chapter should receive feedback from the dissertation chair and subject matter expert in seven days. I still don't have feedback. I couldn't submit a new draft last week, I submitted an alignment table without the draft, but this week I am supposed to submit an updated alignment table and a new draft, and I won't be able to submit anything if I don't get feedback. My dissertation chair says the program won't let her add feedback until the subject matter expert adds feedback so I hunted down their email and contacted them this morning. I'm hoping they get back to me.

My in-laws invited us to Thanksgiving this year, and since my grandma no longer does it DH accepted on our behalf. We've gone over the last few years and it hasn't been too bad, usually just the four of us - sometimes a stray friend of his parents. This year, DH says, they've invited 13 people over. My friend who adopted Rue can't afford to fly home for Thanksgiving this year so I wanted to invite her to go with us. DH won't ask his parents until Saturday, but said his dad would like it if I texted him more so suggested I ask. I don't know if I am comfortable with that. Especially if it's just to ask a favor. But I do want her to come, especially if it's going to be a large event where I don't really know anyone.

Feline: Little man is in my prayers today as he goes through his surgery.

I'm glad DH is okay with your making a dinner list and a shopping list to match.

Normally I wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving to put up Christmas decorations. But being injured and taking a fall vacation to boot I skipped out of the fall decorating. The attic climb was just more than I could deal with, fresh from the nerve being pinched. So the consolation prize for Miss B. was putting the Christmas stuff out 3 weeks early. We have Thanksgiving day at my SIL's house (her choice. It started the year her DH passed) and on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, we eat with my mom and step-dad. So no one really sees anything until December anyway.

Eva: Little man discovered his feet yesterday! It was so cute. He was exploring his toes then grabbed them and lifted his entire leg up like he was showing it off to us, with this big grin on his face, like "Look what I have!". This morning he had his feet lifted in the air and he was just staring at them. Maybe now that he knows they exist he can start figuring out how to move them in concert with his arms to crawl!

DH actually let me make a grocery list yesterday, but it was kind of rushed since he had to work to make up hours so I spent most of the day with the baby. I realized this morning that both of us forgot about my breakfasts, so it was the gas station this morning for a burrito. I had done six dinners last week, three oven and three slowcooker. We've still got two slowcooker ones left and DH just keeps putting them off. The chicken is probably going to go bad, because he didn't prepare it this morning, and we'll be at the hospital for the next two days. For this week I skipped the slowcooker and did only four dinners - two oven and two instant pot. DH is hesitant to try our instant pot (a Christmas gift last year), but when I told him it could make mac n cheese in 4 minutes he was like "Okay, why not?" lol. I'm hoping choosing less dinners, since he's currently not home for two meals a week and won't make a full meal if he's not there, will result in less food wastage.

Today baby boy has his 4 month wellness check (a month late) that doubles as his all-clear check for surgery tomorrow. We have to be at the hospital at 5:30am tomorrow and poor baby can't have any formula after 1am, he's not going to be a happy camper. I'm going to wake him at midnight to make sure he gets a last meal in before 1 and hope I can distract him with toys when we head to the hospital. They're going to look in his ears and possibly insert tubes depending on what they find behind his eardrums. His ENT suspects there's fluid that is causing his hearing loss. They'll do a hearing test while he's under, too. Then she's going to look in his throat and take out his adenoids and possibly remove some of the skin that is causing his obstructive apnea to help him breathe more safely while he sleeps. The whole thing will take about 2.5 hours and he'll be staying overnight, which means mama is staying overnight, too. Both sets of my parents are insisting on being there for the surgery. So that's going to be interesting. Usually at events that have both of my parents I sit with my mom, since my brother will spend time with my dad. But this is just me, DH, and my parents so it's going to be awkward.

I am glad Miss B is feeling better! And that you get another shot at trick-or-treating. I think I've decided to wait until little man is at least 2. I might hand out candy next year, though, and he can help with that. I am in the camp of let the turkey have his season, I won't put up our little tree until December. We don't decorate outside.

Feline: your little man is so cute!! He looks so happy. And his homemade Halloween gift at daycare is adorable.

I'm glad DH is seeing the light on the financial situation. I take care of the books here. I'm better at it than Jim. I'm not sure why he feels "less manly" if you do the books, but I am glad he is listening to common sense to get finances under control. It's easy to swipe a card and forget about it.

Miss B is feeling 100% better. We put up our Christmas trees yesterday. BOY was she a big help. I'll have to share pictures soon. I was proud of her taking creative control this year. She was shy about it at first but then she got in her groove and her inner artist's eye took over. My mother got tickled. I robbed her donation pile of Christmas decor (mostly outdoor) for items that I had that finally bit the dust at my house. She's glad they will be used well and she can still see them when she wants. They don't do a lot of outdoor decorating anymore. Neither of them can get on the roof.

miss B. did say she wants to trick-or-treat next year! It's on a Saturday so YAY!! I may figure out costumes for me and her dad after the Christmas season passes.

I'm tired. Today I go up and help the neighbor get cleaned up and ready for her post-surgery appointment. Her poor husband doesn't know where to start.

Eva: The fox costume still has the tags on it, so I am definitely going to try to sell it next year. I got it on a good sale so I might even be able to make a small profit since it's a good costume for not much money. We didn't go trick-or-treating or hand out candy, but I got the little guy dressed up and we watched Igor to get into the holiday spirit.

And they made cute little signs in daycare!


DH finally admitted we need to manage our money a little better and has agreed to spend less on our cards and to start carrying cash. His parents are wealthy so charge absolutely everything to their credit card - even new cars! But the thing is, they can pay their cards off in full every month, so they aren't running up interest all year long. I managed to save up enough to move out of my parents house before we were married with strict budgeting - something I had to learn growing up poor. He has never had to learn those skills, so this is his first experience struggling with money. His dad is very generous and loves to help us, which really doesn't help my husband with learning to manage our budget. But I think having our son has made him want to be a little more independent from his parents. My mom thinks I should force him to let me handle our budget - which I was doing when we were first married. But he said it made him feel like less of a man to have me handling our money, so I let him do it. I don't mind too much struggling for awhile so he can learn, but I do mind that he doesn't trust my advice unless his dad says the same thing. I took family finance classes in college, have an accounting certification from Coursera, and worked at a credit union - but all he really sees is my learning disability so he doesn't trust me with any number or money related issue.

I am shocked your stepdad would go that far for a favorite soda. He must feel awful! Congestive heart failure, kidney stones, and kidneys shutting down should be enough to switch his go-to drink, you'd think. I'm so sorry you have to deal with that, it must be hard watching him do that to himself.

I'm sorry Miss B is sick and had to miss trick-or-treating. Do you think she'll want to go next year? I know you said this might be the last year. It could be fun to do a family theme next year for a final hurrah. I'm not sure if we're going to go next year or not. Baby boy will be 1y5m so he should be walking and talking, but it's still kind of young. I might wait until he's 2 or even 3. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Richard: Thank you for starting our November Thread. Hope your TV is there soon.

Feline: To reply from October's thread, that is crazy that the pantry isn't open on the weekend. I think ours opens half a day on Saturday for people that work but need a boost. If I'm not mistaken they close on Wednesdays early to counterbalance. I'll keep thinking. I'm honest my brain is fried.

Your little guy is cute, Fox Costume or not. Hang on to it and you might sell it for next year.

I think order pick up is a wonderful thing for some people, but in my house substitutions can be dangerous. I couldn't do that. You have food allergies as well, so I don't think I'd like the 1/3 of my groceries being inedible for a household member.

I hope DH lets you swap stores.

You asked about my stepdad, his stones are the reason for the reduced kidney function. One kidney was 80% blocked, causing damage. This was about 3 years ago. That blockage sent him into congestive heart failure. He now has a pacemaker/defibrillator implant. We had another incident where he 100% blocked last year, causing more damage. He had stones to pass before the first time he was blocked to 80% or more. These last 3 years of surgeries have been mostly because he just will not follow doctor's orders. I guess Mountain Dew is worth dying for...

I had to take Miss B to the doctor yesterday morning. She has a sinus infection. She doesn't have a fever but she has drainage and her throat looks funky. It's just as well she couldn't go trick or treating it was too cold in my opinion anyway. We are under a freeze warning.

She goes back to school this morning. I'm hitting a huge sale at Kroger and going to Sams for bulk items tomorrow. So that means I can rest today (Ha! I made a joke.) so I'll be fit for the shopping tomorrow.
