Kaitlynn's Choice

Tonight Kaitlynn and I went to dinner with MawMaw at Steak 'n Shake and then ran some errands. When we were at the gas station Kaitlynn saw a Steak 'n Shake next door and told us that's what she wanted for dinner. She said she wanted a shake. So we went with her choice. Of course, she got her shake but didn't drink it. She didn't eat either. But what's new?

Strep? I Hope Not.

Sunday night I started feeling so sick. I had a horrible headache and was very nauseous. Monday Kaitlynn and I missed the MomsLikeMe.com playdate at The Magic House because I still wasn't feeling well and Kaitlynn was sleeping so peacefully. Tuesday I woke up with a red eye. My throat was hurting worse than it had been this past week. Since I was still feeling bad today, I called the doctor. They thought maybe I had strep throat, and wanted me to come in for a throat culture. Everything looked clear, though. They went ahead and did a throat culture because I am having trouble swallowing. They gave me a prescription for antibiotics and said to drink plenty of liquid and get lots of rest. It's kind of difficult to drink anything right now because of my throat, but getting lots of rest is going to be the biggest problem, considering I have a 2 1/2 year old, provide childcare Tuesday through Friday and have other obligations.

Last Greek Festival of the Year

Sunday evening Dave, Kaitlynn, MawMaw and I went to the Greek Festival. We look forward to these festivals as we love the food (deserts included). Unfortunately, we got there late and they had closed the kids corner early, as well as the market. But we still got to enjoy great food, music and dancing.

Room with a Purpose

Saturday night I organized the kitchen cabinets and pantries, cleaned off the counters and got the kitchen back into order. Saturday night and into Sunday morning MawMaw, Dave and I stayed up moving the house around. For too long one of our rooms has gone without a purpose. We never even knew what to call this room. Was it the living room, the sitting room, the den? We referred to it as the room with the fireplace or the middle room. We never really used it. The cats (well, Tiger mainly) took over the room and used the loveseat as his thrown. Since Tiger has passed away, it was just empty. There was no purpose. So, MawMaw came up with a great idea! Why not turn that room into our dining room? Currently we were using the kitchen (which is a decent size) as a kitchen and dining room. It was getting pretty crowded. So we thought MawMaw's idea was great and we were open to trying it out. I had thought about using that room for a dining room before, but just couldn't envision it. MawMaw said it might take time getting used to it, but we loved it immediately. Take a look!

Parties in the Park

Friday September 25th Dave, Kaitlynn, MawMaw and I went to Parties in the Park. Kaitlynn had a great time riding a pony named Clarabell, sliding, climbing in the inflatables, bouncing and being wild. She also enjoyed several rainbow snowcones - one before dinner and one after dinner!

Botanical Garden Children's Garden

Wednesday, September 23rd Dave, Kaitlynn, Olivia and I went to the MomsLikeMe.com playdate at Botanical Garden - Childrens Garden. We had a great time. We met up with Trisha, Kylie, Emily and Ella. Kaitlynn had fun sliding, climbing and playing in the fountains. She also loved the penguin balloon SammyJ made for her.
