|(It's almost fall!!)|
It's Friday and things are getting back to normal. The Handy Man is at work and I'm babysitting twins. (Cue Blue's Clues in the background.) I feel like maybe I can get back to the things I normally do, since that stupid cancer cloud has finally gone away. Here's five things about my life--
1- The Handy Man went back to the doctor. His 'empty space' is healing nicely. So the doctor says. Looks gross and swollen to me. We discussed how in a year (or two) it won't even look weird to us. It'll just be his foot. And, someday, our grandkids will think it's awesome that Grandpa only has 9 toes. I considered including a picture, but wasn't sure you wanted to see it. I find it fascinating, but, then, I kinda love him, missing toe and all.

2- The reason I have few pictures lately is because my kids make a habit of stealing my batteries. Every time I get some new rechargeables, I swear to them that they will not use my batteries. Ever. Then, a few days go by and someone comes to ask for batteries. I'm a sucker for their puppy-dog eyes, and the draw of a quieter house while they play the Wii. I give in. Every time.
3- I saw on the news that they now have rehab for people addicted to the internet. I don't think that's me. I didn't go on the internet at all yesterday. Unless you count the 16 times I checked facebook on my phone. Maybe it's time to book me a room.
4- Comic Con is in Salt Lake this week. Even though my two oldest boys are there, I still don't really know what it is. Lots of people in costume, some famous people (who you can pay to have your picture taken with- what?!? You can have your picture with me for free!), and other stuff. I thought it was about comic book characters, but Henry Wrinkler is going to be there. The Fonz? My son says it's a geek convention. At least he didn't wear a costume.
5- It's September. September. My favorite month. Not just because it's my birthday month, but because it's the month of the autumnal equinox. I love autumn. It's my favorite. Today I got out my fall decorations and realized something- I need more. I'm not putting up anything Halloween-ish yet. I'll wait a bit. Mostly because the Handy Man hates Halloween and I'm keeping that decor to one month. (It's taking a lot of willpower.)
My sister and I went through our Pinterest 'fall boards' a couple weeks ago and are wanting to make some stuff. Are you on Pinterest? You should be. Also, you should follow me and I'll follow you right back. Because, along with September, I also love Pinterest.

That's it. My life in 5. What's going on with you??
