We've had a reprieve from autumn....just for the weekend I'm sure. Our season changes for the worst, here, usually on Halloween when the brightly colored trees are hammered with a blasting cool wind and pounding rain. I say usually on Halloween, because that is 'trick or treat' night which is usually ruined! We just got her costume, and are looking forward to my prediction being wrong!
I saw it was snowing in Reno yesterday, so i won't complain about the upcoming rain and REALLY enjoy being outside today!
I will be taking one last dip in the pool, to recover all the stuff molly has thrown in there (i don't know why she does that) at which time we will tack on the new cover...and daddy is actually mowing the lawn this morning!
Miss tactile defense went right out to help. Made it to the garage, took out the push mower, and even though she cannot TOUCH it with her bare hands (the monkey had to do that) she did venture out onto the grass with bare feet! (an amazing feat for her!)
No worries now...it isn't running, she just went and got it from the garage!!
GO MONKEY! TOUCH THAT HANDLE!!
And for the OMG news in my small town...THIS appeared on the southern
hiway coming into town this week...made all the state wide news...
How embarrassing is THAT!! I cannot believe how UNenlightened people choose to remain, and pray that one day this will change. Only then can we reach world peace...when we learn to just ACCEPT people for what they are, instead of fearing it, judging it, and letting it
separate us as a nation and as a people, and instruments of world peace. *sigh* Just when i think we've come a long way, baby....someone has to do this.
Politicians?? you need to stop enabling the haters. I'm not voting for EITHER of you until I start hearing what you ARE going to do, IN DETAIL, instead of the mud you both seem to ENJOY slinging around......
and sara...dear sara (Palin-Rep VP candidate) you broke my heart. I KNOW they told you to fire up the masses.....but you DIDN'T have to DO IT!! You cannot advocate for my child on one hand....and PREACH fear mongering on the other!
You cannot promote world peace, by spreading hate.
DIVERSITY is not limited to our children. Think about it.
Molly is still recovering from the bug...we did not get to go back to school on Friday, but after calling the school, that probably was a good thing. Both her teacher AND her aide were at home. Teacher's daughter had the flu....the AIDE had the flu! Missouri even beat the flu shots!! Hopefully this means we are done with it for the rest of the winter!!
I am still cleaning up the aftermath, Lysol-ing all the common areas....bleaching the appliances, and shampooing the master bed and bath for the third time, trying to get all the peanut butter out of it. Maybe Molly is going to go into Interior Design....as she got the urge to turn my bedroom from blue to 'peanut butter' brown!
Daddy isn't seeing budding talent.....he is still just seeing red. It's a good thing she holds the key to his heart!
I think everyone else is recovering nicely in the family...missed seeing them this weekend, but Moll still isn't up to traveling. We may take her first trip out of the house this afternoon to go to walmart and restock(not buying peanut butter again....ever!) pick up more meds, and see how she does with a short trip. I know she's got the cabin fever, as she brought me her bookbag, and her lunchbox yesterday.
Hope this finds yall happy and healthy, and enjoying beautiful weather!! I will leave you with the Larson twins enjoying some time in NYC, the last week before chemo resumes on little Coleman.
Please continue to pray that Mercy and Total Healing is shown to this beautiful little boy and his family, and while we're on the subject of politicians...START DEMANDING A CURE FOR PEDIATRIC CANCER!! 64 kids will be diagnosed next week! it HAS to STOP!! We see lots of pink around...but we're not seeing any GOLD!! Pediatric Cancer has GOT to be ADDRESSED AS LEAST AS MUCH!!
