Packing & Preparing for Our Cruise!

Today was a loooong, busy day. It’s a little past 10pm, and I’m just now really sitting down to rest for the first time since… well, since all day. Since it’s late, and I’m exhausted, I’m going to keep the writing to a minimum tonight and just share a few quick things.

Yogurt & toast for breakfast before church.

French Toast & Puffins & Chores

Jeff went to the church first thing this morning in for a men’s breakfast, followed by a few hours spent as a work day on our church campus. So I made cinnamon & pumpkin french toast for Emmie and I. Unfortunately I didn’t realize until everything was done, that we didn’t have any syrup. Oh well, plenty of butter did the trick.

Rarely in my life do I get migraines. In fact, I can probably count on one hand the number of real migraines I’ve ever had in my life. And tonight is one of those. It came on out of nowhere after work tonight, and at 7:30 (after taking Tylenol at 6pm, which usually works for me) it’s not gotten any better. I didn’t feel like cooking, so Jeff got Guthrie’s on the way home, and that was good. Here are a few photos from the day, and now I’m gonna try to lay still & quiet & hopefully this will go away soon.

Strange Sunday

Today ending up being kind of a strange day. Strange in the fact that I didn’t take my first photo until 1:30pm, and after that, I still barely took any. But anyways, here’s a rundown of the day…

We went to Sunday School & church, both of which were great. Emmie wore a cute, fancy dress, that I didn’t get a photo of.

*Monday morning edit* – One of Emmie’s sweet Sunday school teachers just sent me this photo! Thank you, Mrs. Kristin!

Mama Called The Doctor And The Doctor Said…

That baby girl has hand foot mouth. Well I didn’t call, I took the day off and we went in to the pediatrician’s office first thing this morning. Our normal doctor/friend Abby was off today, but we saw our next favorite person, the nurse practitioner Mona. I had noticed these sores around her mouth yesterday, but didn’t think too much of it. I thought the one in the center of her top lip was from when she busted her lip Friday, and then the others just started showing up yesterday afternoon, and I was hoping maybe her skin was just irritated from all the snot. But then she also developed a few bumps on her bum, and teeny tiny barely visible ones on her legs too. So by the time Mona saw her this morning, she gave us a very quick diagnosis.

It’s Been A Rough Day

Today has been kind of a rough day. Emmie is still not feeling well, and although the fever didn’t even break 100° today, she barely slept, ate very little, and was super fussy all day long. To top it off, I don’t feel good myself now (started around lunch time – sore throat, headache, stuffy nose), so that’s lovely too. A few quick notes about the day, before I attempt to go to bed early…

When Life Gives You Lemons…

Alright, so two nights in a row now I haven’t felt much like writing/talking. Here’s the reason today – as an introvert, I only have so many words per day before they’re all spent, and on a very long Wednesday night, all my words are depleted by the time I make it home after church & choir & praise team rehearsal. So again, tonight’s post will be kept short & sweet…

Emmie wore new gold ballet flats to school today. Aren’t they adorable?!

Flower Power Pants

I’m not feeling very wordy tonight (shocking, right?), So I’m going to keep it short and sweet, then get back to my Netflix shows. Look at my baby girl in these flower power pants! I love this outfit. There was actually another little girl in a different class at school today also wearing the exact same thing. She was cute too, but obviously Emmie was cuter : )
