October.

It’s cool and chilly outside today. It actually feels like fall. I think I have SAD. I’m not a fan of cold weather or winter. I can’t stand gray, dreary days trapped in the house. It makes me anxious and depressed to think of the looming winter. This afternoon I managed to light our gas fireplace in the livingroom. I’ve never had a gas fireplace before. We haven’t turned the heat on in the house yet, and I just decided to...

Mortality & Also Some Pictures.

For some reason I started reading The Fault in Our Stars tonight. I’ve been avoiding it, and I clicked on it, and got I got sucked in. No. No. No. No. Why do I do this to myself? I can already see where this is heading and I don’t want to go there. Nope. It reminds me of middle school, and maybe high school, when I would read those Lurlene McDaniel books about teenagers who die of cancer. Raise your hand...

Thanksgiving & Fall Leaves.

Apparently I thought Host Boy had gotten his visa but that was wrong information because I found out their visa appointment is actually this coming Thursday. I will continue holding my breath until then!  There should be no issues, but you know. The disorganization of Ukraine and timeline for the program is hard.  I desperately need to buy plane tickets to pick up Host Boy at Dulles but I’m not doing it until after he gets his visa at the embassy...

Fall Leaves.

I am so effing miserable.  My head just hurts, really bad. I got antibiotics this afternoon.  They are gigantic pills.  Bigger than the Mucinex.  I can’t swallow them. I could barely swallow them when I cut them in half. Why do they make pills so huge? What is the purpose?  My throat just isn’t that big! I swallow and the pill is stuck in there while I gag it back up, it’s horrible. I hope gagging these pills down is worth it.  I want to feel better soon.  I can’t keep...

Afternoon at the orchard.

Today was our homeschool field trip to the local orchard and pumpkin patch. I’m loving homeschool field trips–we get to pay the school group rate to all kinds of places!  We have been looking at The 9 Best Apple Orchards to Visit in the Twin Cities this Fall and are currently saving up to visit one! Today at the pumpkin patch it was $7 for each person over age two and we all got to pick a pumpkin, take a private...

Fall is creeping up on us. 0

Fall is creeping up on us.

Father/daughter dance from the wedding I did this weekend: Laughing bride’s maids… The wedding itself was difficult.  The minister was an older man who didn’t like wedding photographers, clearly.  He said we weren’t allowed to be in his line of sight at all during the service, not allowed to get anywhere near the stage, and not allowed to use flash. Why the minister gets to tell the photographers what to do is beyond me–if I was the bride I would be angry!  She’s the...
