I was planning on putting up our pumpkin patch post tonight but it is already 11 pm and I need to get to bed, so you’re getting a mishmash of this and that instead.
My mom is coming up tomorrow night to stay for a few days as this is doctor appointment week. We have a consultation with a pediatric surgeon for Hutt on Wednesday afternoon. We’re leaving Keaton at home this time because we need to be able to focus, ask questions and explain what’s going on without having to also wrangle a child. Two weekends ago was a bad weekend with lots of episodes and he had another one for no apparent reason this morning. So this is definitely an issue, it’s not getting better and when then tell me he isn’t in pain I call bullshit. I see the kid’s face; he is most definitely in pain.
On Thursday morning I will be going in for the LEEP procedure. We’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to sit and think about it and I think it’s probably better that way. When I do think about it I get nervous and scared. I’m not necessarily sure of what I’m nervous and scared about, but I am.
This weekend we went grocery shopping and the cashier asked to see my card to check the signature when I was done with my transaction. Keaton was sitting in the cart and I was holding Hutt so I didn’t have the best penmanship to begin with but then the pen on those signing machine thingys didn’t write very well and so my K looked more like a C. The cashier looked at it, then looked at me, then questioned me. This is all fine, she’s just doing her job, but here’s what I find funny – I used two $1 coupons to complete my order. If I was going to steal someone’s card would I worry about using coupons?? I mean really.
Hutton had his 3-month pictures taken on Saturday and the session went pretty good. I was nervous after his newborn pictures required TWO sittings to get some decent pictures because he cried through the entire first session. I’m looking forward to his 6-month pictures because CaS said she’d take them for us when she’s home for Christmas!
I’m reading the book A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose and it is really making me think. I’ll have to let you know if I recommend it once I’m done but so far it’s hitting home with me.
I spent a awhile talking to a friend today about living more simply. About being happy with what we have, not being content, but really being happy and how freeing it is when you get there. It’s awesome having conversations like that and having the other person practically complete your sentences.
But, if we’re talking about wants then you should know, I want chickens. Like, for real, I want chickens. But Collin is not on board. I’d also like a goat, but I’d settle for just chickens. But Collin still won’t budge.
I think I'm addicted to organic chocolate milk. I have been drinking SO much lately. I heard it was good but I was not prepared for that much deliciousness. Speaking of milk, we've completely converted to drinking organic. It took awhile to take the plunge, I mean, that price tag. Ugh. But once we finally bit the bullet and did it we haven't looked back. It tastes THAT much better.
Cluck Cluck. I mean, G'night!
