I Got Nothin' ...

... except for a little complaining, though I'll spare you the agony of listening to me kvetch. Lucky you. Seriously.


Like sands through the hourglass, this was the past week of our lives....


Grady's 6 month immunizations ~ split up over two separate days

A cooking demonstration and lunch at a fabulous Mediterranean restaurant

Two trips to the Apollo Children's Hospital to visit our good friend's little guy who was there for observation due to a horrible drug allergy.

Riley started her swim club practice twice a week

We had parent teacher conferences, with Sheridan's lasting twice as long as Riley's

And Shabbat dinner with a small group of other "Members of The Tribe."

We were house-bound for almost three days due to the monsoons that finally rolled in

... though we did make a quick escape to dinner Saturday night with friends.


And Riley finally lost her tooth. Which reminds me that I need to ensure that the tooth fairy doesn't forget to stop by our house tonight ... which would be bad if she did, considering Riley wrote her a personal note, and I promised her that if the fairy had trouble deciphering what she said that I'd call her and explain ... as I have her number programed in my iPhone.




Riley asked how to spell 3rd ... to which I responded "it's three with an 'rd'.
I thought she'd write the number three, but instead she spelled it out and added the 'rd'.
It took me awhile to figure out what she wrote ...





Visiting Carter in the hospital. Sheridan LOVED looking at his IV and everything he was connected to. Riley was just afraid he was contagious and quickly jumped off the bed after the photo.




The back patio after the monsoons. This area is MUCH larger than our last home, and thus it takes a LOT longer to flood. The water is still about 10 - 12 inches in some areas, though it pales in comparison to last year's floods. Not that I'm complaining...

Hope your friend's little guy's better soon.

Riley definitely looks ready to bolt, LOL.

Sorry about the monsoons! That would be a pain. Glad you got to escape a bit.

Hope Grady did fine with the shots, how's his skin doing?

I found your blog from the DS spouses group. I love it.

We are about to go on our first overseas experience, and it is fun to read about all of your experiences and your perspective.

So did all that monsoon water end up in your house?

Christy said...

Hope that little guy gets to go home soon! And wow, that is a LOT of water!

(grinning from ear to ear) What would you do if Riley asks for the Tooth fairy's phone number? Won't that be a pickle!

I thought that was your swimming pool!

Natalie said...

What an update! Sheesh! No wonder you went for the bulleted reporting style.

And who made the rule you can't whine on the blog? It's your blog for cripe's sake! And it's whining season. Go for it, girl!

I like how Riley is leaning as far away from your friend as possible. And I LOVE the tooth fairy letter. So cute.

Monsoons sound like fun, but of course, I don't have to live through them. :-)
