We had a busy weekend and I'm pooped out!
Saturday we went to the Christmas Extravaganza at Essex Alliance Church...to be continued. I'm too tired!
For some weird reason, I was motivated to make 3 things today. Gene planned on making deviled eggs, but the shells didn't come off nicely so I kindly offered to make egg salad. Yum. Some mayo, salt, paprika and celery. Then, since I had the celery out, I decided to make ants on a log for Gene. I prefer my logs without ants, so I made a couple of those, too. This afternoon I finally had the umph to make Frost on the Pumpkin. If you go to this blogs tags you can find the recipe. It's pretty straightforward to make but it takes a long time to bake and cool. STILL waiting for it to cool enough to flip it and put the frosting on!
It was very nice to have the extra hour of sleep back. We all felt a little off today but I'm sure we'll get used to it in time.
Once again Casey was a perfect sleeper and Colin was a fusser. Moxie tolerated my getting up and down a hundred times and snuggled for most of the night.
Colin had a shower with Dada. I removed his Frankenstein black nail polish and he insisted I put blue on. Yes, he's an odd duck!
Here's a funny. On Friday, Colin was giving Priscilla a hard time and was not paying attention and kept asking for bipap when he didn't need it and carrying on. She told him that he had to finish his work and that if he kept being distracted she'd take off the nail polish on one of his nails. Well, he still fussed and asked for bipap so she used remover on one pinky. After that--he was perfect! Ha ha!
Nancy was here for the day. Casey had his tubby and had a trach change.
Then the three of them spent the rest of the afternoon playing computer--Toy Story 3 and Shrek the 3rd.
Gene worked on the windows adding foam and doing some stuff with insulation and that kind of stuff.
This was the easiest mammogram appointment I ever had! (which will probably mean that I have to go back for follow up like I did last time :( )
Anyway, I was in and out and on the road BEFORE my appointment was actually scheduled! How's that for efficiency? I guess I was there at a lull because on my way out the waiting room was full. Oh, and there were wet flurries flying around on my way home. UGH!
Nancy L wasn't here today so Colin was in charge of Gene, Aunt Ju and Priscilla. I guess he whined and fussed and used every trick in the book to get Julia to fix him or get his air out--anything so he didn't have to work! He ended up doing better the second half of the day.
Julia spent a lot of time taking down the Halloween things, removing batteries, and putting things in totes. That's a good job done! Now I just have to get Gene to put them in the attic. Maybe it would be easier to keep them out until next year??
Casey got to go to Costco today to pick up some supplies for the Harvest Dinner on Wednesday. I think he liked it. They ended up with a flatbed full of stuff!
He seemed pretty tired when he got home. He rested in bed and fell asleep for about a minute.
Colin waited ALL day to see the new movie Aunt Chris got him for Halloween. It is the Scooby Doo Camp Scare. He watched it two times in a row and would have watched it a third time if we had let him. We watched Scared Shrekless, which I had DVR'd and that satisfied him.
Casey had a shower and fiddled with his DynaVox for the rest of the evening.
We're reading a really good Goosebumps right now. Casey really enjoys it but is so tired we only get to read a couple of chapters at the most.
