Today is ST's birthday, so there will be partying. Sort of. Vanilla cake with strawberry icing, and a plain vanilla cake with vanilla icing since Amber and Elijah are allergic to strawberry. Mom is going to bake the cakes-- thank you Mom, best Mom ever! <3 We got ST art supplies for her presents today, and a cosplay outfit that will get here eventually as those things have to be custom made in China-- at least the ones she wants. Only place we can find them. I'll have her dress up and post a pic when she gets it in a couple of weeks.
This will be the first holiday in a while that I haven't posted a short story, and I'm sorry for that. Very sorry. It saddens me to miss a short. Unfortunately, with everything that's happened, I still haven't even gotten to finish writing Dark Nights and Headlights. I will instead write a Mother's Day short for the blog. Now, who to write it about...
I've been sick as *#&$ since Charlie was born, slammed with allergies on her birth date and I kept trying Claritin, Benadryl, teas etc etc, yesterday I gave up and went to the clinic once the Spouse got him. I really don't like going to doctors or taking meds. But, desperate times and all, because I've felt horrible for almost two weeks and was so exhausted yesterday I couldn't hardly get out of bed. Allergies, sinus infection, fun stuff-- a steroid shot started helping within hours. I have antibiotics, spray, cough meds to help clear the rest of me up. I know I said I'd start the new blog story Monday (or was it Weds?) but I'm going to say we will see if I've got past feeling worn to a nub before doing that.
Also, next week I will do the monthly winner, I promise. Probably the end of the week, but it'll get done.
I think that's all for now, so I'll do the grandma thing and post some Charlie pics :D
And thank you all for being such amazing people. Y'all helped us through another rough patch, and saying we're grateful doesn't express the depth of our gratitude adequately. Again, thank you.
|This morning, I picked Charlie up and she wasn't sure she was cool with that.|
|Then she gave up and went to sleep.|
|Elijah peeking at Charlie while Mike holds them both. That's Elijah's baby handprint Mike has tattooed on his arm in the bottom center/right.|
|Not grandkid related-- I have an amazing Hubby. This is what he made us for dinner the other night when I was feeling particularly crappy. Funnel cakes!|
