Today is Gabe’s last day of work. Wow, that came up on us fast! He still doesn’t feel 100% healthy, but I think the fever part was just a 24-hour thing. He managed to enjoy his mongolian bbq yesterday, bless his heart.
Tug, Angie, and Tanner were in town yesterday to pick up something for their youth group and popped in to walk Ava to the bus stop. She was so surprised and happy. I’m just lovin’ all these surprises, but we’re running out of family!
Bible study yesterday morning was a blessing yet again. These ladies are so great. A couple are younger than me, most are older, some are years older than my mom. It’s been so fun to share our lives with each other.
Ava and I made pumpkin bread this morning–a first for me, I believe. It smells divine, and I might just have to go sit down with a couple warm slices and a book. Then, I’ll get to work on my book manuscript. (that’s coming along, by the way, but writing a book is waaaay harder than it seems. at least for me!)
So, there’s this guy in our neighborhood who is a bit freaky. Or maybe it’s just his evil-looking little dog that gives me the heebie-jeebies. You know how all the decent, respectful dog owners carry a grocery bag with them when they walk their dogs, to pick up the poop? Well, this man picks it up in a ziploc baggie. A clear, transparent, see-through, very small baggie. You can see the poop, you can see the steam, and it is revolting. Against such things, there should be a law!
Did you know that when hydrogen peroxide bubbles on a cut, it does not mean that it’s infected? It’s just reacting to a chemical found in blood. I did not know that.
I’ve gotten to bed at 11, 11, and 10!! the past 3 nights. And today is the first day in a long time that I haven’t fought the urge to collapse in bed while Nina was taking a nap. This is great.
Our weekend (at the moment) is completely free. That feels nice. I’m ready for a breather. Ava has a soccer game tonight (her last), then Livi’s last game is Tuesday. We just found out that Livi has tournaments this year. Just when we thought we were nearing the end…watch her keep winning and winning and winning…
Have a great weekend, all!
