As you can see there was a problem on the domain change so it looks like the new domain won’t be completely live until late Monday. It’s just a little hiccup that we are going to work through 🙂
Last week was pretty light as I was anticipating the name change.
I am a little behind on my horrible housewife decluttering project. I am cutting myself some slack because there is literally years of accumulated clutter from various extended family members that have lived here in years past plus all the clutter that having young kids brings!
However, I have made some huge improvements that I will be sharing with you this week. I am pretty proud of myself.
I started working out last week (at a real gym) and I will tell you all about it tomorrow. It’s now Sunday and I am feeling a lot less sore than I was the last few days.
No pain no gain, right?
I also have some fun Thanksgiving and Christmas crafts lined up.
This time of the year is also when we have issues with Pea’s Juvenile Arthritis. Life gets a little bit busier for us each winter but we love it.
My kids had a fun and full day this Halloween.
There was a storybook parade at their school, led by a local high school drum line. All the kindergartners were scare crows (It’s a school tradition.) Pea refused to wear a real straw hat. She also refused to wear real denim and chose a too small plaid shirt to wear. The big change in weather prompted a pretty awful arthritis flare the day before Halloween. The special festivities did a lot to distract her and she was happy.
Pork Chop chose to be a Skylander named Stink Bomb for Halloween. Apparently, most kids did not recognize the character and even more adults had no idea what a Skylander was so Pork Chop ended up upset about his costume choice. My heart broke when he told me his classmates made fun of him and called him a skunk and stinky. We had a talk about how I dressed up as an actual black and white skunk when I was little and got made fun of too. It was even worse because I split the cheap plastic pants on my costume! Kids are kids and can be mean sometimes and unfortunately, Pork Chop is a gentle and sensitive soul.
We all had a laugh when Pea, who is by far the shortest kid in her class every year, asked him if he wanted her to beat everyone in his class up because she may be little but she sure is tough. I told her “no!” She really is tough and I have no doubt that she could rain terror down on his first grade class but we don’t want to start a precedent of his little sister retaliating when he is hurt.
All in all, it’s been a great weekend! Elsa called upon winter and Florida is getting a chilly.
