Oof. I’m so glad it’s Friday today, even if it is pouring outside. Here’s a little TGIF post to celebrate the end of this crazy week!
A high of the week was celebrating Halloween with the girls! Isla and Norah both dressed up as Violet from The Incredibles and had the best time trick or treating. My mom came and joined us, so it was nice to have backup as they ventured from house to house.
I also got the proofs for Isla’s school photos back, and they look great! (But also – why do they have to be so dang expensive? Once Norah’s in school I’m going to have to sit down and calculate if buying a digital copy and printing them elsewhere will be better financially.)
A low of the week was Norah getting bonked in the nose by an empty swing seat. She swelled up and bruised pretty good and has a decent raspberry, but she didn’t break her nose so that’s a plus. I was hoping to take our Christmas card photos soon, but I suppose that will have to wait until the raspberry is at least healed enough to easily photoshop away.
Also, I got rear-ended yesterday so that was a hoot. In a nutshell, I was waiting at a yield sign to enter onto the highway and the guy behind me thought I was going and hit the back of my car. I have a bit of whiplash, and my car has a hole in the bumper and a busted taillight, but otherwise everything is okay. Norah was with me but she’s fine. (She was more concerned about me not chauffeuring her home where the cartoons I promised her awaited.)
An internet find I loved was this meme:
The best money I spent was some Christmas shopping items that happened to be on sale. I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around shopping for Christmas, but I’m getting there. I have may more fun buying stocking items than I do with the “big” items.
My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was taking them Trick or Treating. After Norah was done at a house she’s sprint down the driveway and yelling, “I GOT TRICK OR TREATS!” It was pretty hilarious.
Oh, and Isla lost another tooth! She proudly pulled it out herself too, after not letting me try for a whole week. Now she’s out of wiggly teeth and the Toothfairy gets a little break from visiting our house. ;)
A song that has been stuck in my head is everything Ru Paul. Is that weird? Probably.
My notable meals of the week were the homemade pizzas I made on Sunday. I finally bought fresh yeast so the crust was so much better than it usually is! (Fun fact: Yeast that has been opened for 3 years still works, just not as well.)
My plans for the weekend are relaxing, for the most part, and then some friends are coming over Saturday night for a mini games night!
