I suppose it is time for a little update...for those of you who care. It has been cooling down a bit here. It's at that point where I can't decide if I should dress the girls in pants or keep them in shorts for a little while longer. Although it has been nice, I am really dreading the winter ahead!
Brett had a couple of pretty laid back weeks which was really good for all of us! He was home early most days last week and we love that! We are really blessed that he isn't one who has to study 24/7 & when he does, it is usually at midnight (when the rest of us are sleeping). He has very weird study habits, but they work out nicely! And, being sleep deprived doesn't affect him the way it does most people.
Quinnlyn is happy as can be. She started going to a little preschool (like 'Joy School') and she is really excited about that! She loves nursery, still loves princesses, and is starting to play with Avery without making her cry! It is so nice when they play nicely for more than 5 minutes!!!! We continue to enjoy her little drawings. She actually drew a toilet the other day...weird I know but we are quite impressed by her abilities...
Avery is sick this week. It began with a runny nose, then a tiny fever for about 1/2 a day. Now she has little 'blisters' on her bum and around her mouth. I didn't think much of it until I noticed the blisters in her mouth this morning...so I have officially diagnosed her with 'Hand, Foot, & Mouth' Disease (I am quite the internet doctor).
Painful....Should be but so far doesn't seem to be
Miserable...all of us (once it gets painful)
Treatable...nope, it's viral
She should be okay soon though since it has been going on for about a week. Her new words are: Stuck, what's that? chapstick, help, hand (she's obsessed with her hands), toes, book, potty (hates having a dirty diaper....may be ready for potty training soon), outside, bike, buckle, & Duke (the dog next door).
As for me? I am awaiting the day I get my new car...and yes I say 'my' because I have officially claimed it. There will be very limited eating in it, frequent washings and WAXINGS (because I will NOT drive another oxidized car), no garbage in it, etc. I am determined to go back to my old ways (before my hubby influenced me into bad habits...yes YOU!) I am also excited for the visitors who are driving it out here (Brett's Parents...Thanks in adavance). I am also looking forward to our Christmas vacation but am quite content on being here for the time being. My exciting news is that I will start selling my Digital Scrapbooking Kits in an online store called: 'Ahhh Scrap'. Hopefully I will make a little money with this.
