It's Definately Been A Manic Monday

This weekend has been hard on me. It's another occasion where I am reminded that my precious Ruby is not with us. Another reminder that she is not here and will never be here, that I am left here for the rest of my life to grieve and ache to hold her in my arms once more. I've had a really rough day and Daniel came home early to help me with the children and around the house, he made dinner and he's such a great guy!! Thanks sweetie.

I have a cold sore the size of Utah. It hurts so badly and sleeping is proving to be challenging b/c whenever I move I hit it and it hurts. It's at its worse point right now and I can feel the tingles and my heartbeat through it. So, I just need to be patient and let it run its course. I've been dealing with them for over 20 years now, so I'm just used to it. Thank you to whatever aunt I have that kissed me when I was a child and gave me this stinky virus!!! hehe can you sense my sarcasm??

Aizen decided today that he was going to pull stuff off of the table. He just happened to get the placemat with the mugfuls of watered down paint on it!! SOOOO all over our carpet was a nice mess of red and pink paint. It took us over 3 hours to clean it up completely and thankfully my inlaws have a steam cleaner that they let us borrow. If it wasn't for that I'd still be over there getting paint out of the carpet.

My mom was up for Halloween and we had a lot of fun. Daniel and I took the kids out trick or treating while my mom stayed at our house and handed out the goodies. To make things easy in our house, we all share the loot of chocolate. Melody cannot have candy b/c of her sensitivities to dyes, so those went home with my mom. Mommy and daddy need some of the loot as payment for taking the kids out... yeah... yeah... that's it. =P Daniel is completely done his stash, can you believe it?? Well if you knew him it would be no surprise to you that his one weakness is chocolate. He doesn't care for other sweets but chocolate and chips!! oh yes!!

We took my mom to the Pickering Flea Market and she got Melody a few new webkinz and really enjoyed the flea market. We got 4 new hermit crabs and they are adjusting well. I will take pictures another day as I want them to have some time to acclimate to their new surroundings. They are named Chumba, Wumba, Bubbaloo and Ruby Too.... the last 2 Melody wanted to name to replace the ones who died. She is such a sweetie. Atm Rico (the alpha crab) is having a bath in the salt water dish and it's one of the funniest things I have ever seen. He is sitting in the middle of the dish and will not move, moving his little legs and stuff... way too funny.

So that was our weekend and sucky Monday. I'll blog more on another day when I feel up to it.

I'm sorry but I giggled at "size of Utah". I usually hear size of Texas!
