As I type this we are waiting on Brian to come out of the antiques store. Each one of us with a different type of electronic device to keep us occupied. School is quickly approaching and will be here in a blink of an eye. Each child is getting antsy waiting on the big day to get here. I am filled with mixed emotions this year the summer has gone by so fast. Brian and I had a wonderful weekend alone in Chicago. We spent the night in a suburb just south of the city Saturday night. Sunday morning we headed up to the Shedds aquarium and then the Willis tower formally the sears tower. It is an impressive building standing 103 stories high towering over the other high rise buildings surrounding it. All in all it was a very fun trip, kind of odd not chasing the kids all around every once in a while I’d hear a child calling Mom and turn to realize it wasn’t one of ours Lol J .
Yesterday we took Will to a podiatrist about his ingrown toenails and had them worked on. They numbed him up and cut the nails down to the root and used some kind of acid to create a scarred area that will keep the nail from growing back again. It will take a few weeks before he feels better they say and he may miss some of his gym class at the onset of school but I am hopeful this will solve the problem for good.
We have been very fortunate this summer after the way it started to have been able to have two mini vacations. Grizzly Jacks for three days with all five kiddies (we took the little ones along) a day a Raccoon lake with Melissa and her folks and the Chicago one so we have been quite busy. The only bad thing that happened is my broken camera L I dropped it Sunday at Willis tower while getting Brains battery out of the camera bag. Boo hoo My sweetie says I get a new one for a anniversary present he’s so sweet. I think today we will look while in Champaign Urbana waiting on Jereme to get off work. We have a set of dishes for him and we get to see his new apartment which he is excited about.
I will have to get some photos posted I have been so lax lately on my blogging. My desk is piled sky high with all sorts of trinkets and souvenirs collected from the summer not to mention I dug out all my scrap paper bits and pieces- way too much. I have several projects in various stages of completion waiting on me. I found some really neat charms and shaped paper clips, hey a girl can never have too many of those or staplers of various sizes and color staples. Tee hee J Thanks by the way for the anniversary wishes I appreciate them. Hey Lynn when is your Birthday and anniversary? I remember your castle post with the sweet buggy but the date has slipped my mind. I think we should to a tag with an about me list of questions maybe. What do you all think? Well I guess I need to end for now the battery on this thing is running down.
I’m back !! I did find a camera on sale at Best Buy so now I need to read and then re-read the manual to wrap my brain around how it works. I’m kinda slow sometimes to change J and then there’s the new editing software hope it’s easier??
So how are you all doing? Leslie are you and Joe back on the road? Are your weather temps any better? We have had some rain finally so Brian had to mow the lawn it looks nice seeing the green shoots sprouting up again plus been getting some cooler temps at night we had some upper 50‘s. What about your weather Lynn still getting lots of rain? I feel like I have been away for so long and have a lot to catch up on J Hope you are all feeling well and enjoying your days. Gonna get off here so I can post hope to hear from ya soon.
Love and Hugs,
