TGIF

A week after minor surgery, I can actually sit in my chair and type.

In-laws have come and gone, Halloween whizzed by and the baby is now a year old! (One year and 6 days but who's counting?) ;) He's taking a few steps, climbing in the bottom of the kitchen table and then climbing onto the chairs. (Just when we thought one short fall from his hiding place under the table, he's standing on chairs already. I guess if he's going to fall--he's going to make it as dramatic as possible.)

While I marvel at how quickly the baby is growing, my oldest daughter is asking to begin shaving her legs and, when she notices that I am trying to do 3 other things at once, she tries to get me to sign a blank piece of paper before going to school.
Poor boy--the middle kid is doing great on comprehension quizzes but can't remember to bring home a book or use shampoo in the shower.

I had a new story idea so I thought I'd throw myself into NaNo again this year and get it written but can't quite remember what it was I was going to write...

I'm very glad to read (implicitly) that your surgery was uneventful and that you're doing ok.

I'm fine, thanks. It was to make sure they got everything after last month's melanoma diagnosis. The surgery was done in the office and was fairly quick--but the stitches and big bruise afterwards made it awkward to sit down!

Glad the surgery went okay and you ca now sit. Caught up on your blog. I don't know whether I laughed harder on the remark you were going to throw yourself into Nano but couldn't quite remember what you were going to write...or you have less trash because the baby eats out of the trashcan *g

Becky,
HI!! I sent you an email...

Kacey,
I just can't figure out how to craft a whole story about a trash-eating baby! ;)
We moved the trash can but I'm not much further along on the writing front...*sigh*
How 'bout you?
