Oct. 31st

Question? Halloween plans? What’s your costume?

2012

No costume. Going with Adric, his friend, and his friend’s mom.

2013

No costume. My daughter had hip surgery today. A minor one which was an outpatient thing. Once she felt ready we went to her bar that she bartends at around 10pm. We enjoyed watching all the crazy drunks and costumes. There were some neat costumes. She was on crutches but felt good. It was good to be out.

Nov 1st

Question? What was something you couldn’t do today?

2012

Write.

2013

I didn’t see my boys. I’m staying with the daughter for awhile until she feels comfortable with the crutches. She is doing good. It was a movie watching kind of day. 🙂

Nov 2nd.  Happy birthday to my youngest kid, Adric!

Question? What’s your biggest expense right now?

2012

Rent on the duplex.

2013

Rent on the duplex and upkeep on the house back home. It is well worth it. Enjoying our time in big little city. Love having two places to call home. I don’t have to live full time in a messy remodel of a home. LOL

Question? When did you last hold a baby?

2012

Wow, probably Adric my son. Ten years ago.

This summer at a baseball game for my son Jessup, a lady handed me her baby while she was swatting bees! LOL I was like, oh, don’t cry little one, I am out of practice!

Question? Today you made ______.

2012

Progress on writing my first novel. A small progress but it is a start!

2013

My daughter feel better. 🙂 She was having an allergic reaction to the bandages on her hip incision. I had to go get some new bandages from the store. I brought Wendy’s food back while out getting the bandages! I am such a good mom. LOL

Nov 5th

Question? What should remain as-is?

2012

???????

2013

My hair. I am keeping it long for the winter. It makes a great warm covering! lol In the Spring, I can cut it for the warm weather. It actually grows fast anymore so I am not afraid to cut it off. 🙂

Nov 6th

Question? What time did you go to bed last night?

2012

I believe it was about 11pm. Normal.

2013

I think it was between 11-12pm. Fairly normal thing. It varies depending on what I am doing. If I read, it tends to be later. I hate putting a book down once I get to reading it. 🙂

Nope. Some done though. Yay! My lists are usually really long. I guess I feel I have to be a super hero or something. 🙂

I did get the emails read, the boys’ laundry done, went to the YMCA and worked out, read blogs, and wrote this blog. 🙂

Yes I have lists on my phone, on paper, and all electronics…still don’t get them done. 🙂
