Nilla- Sounds like the right thing was done with having your mom move out. I'm sure its still hard though.
Erin- Sounds like a busy season for sure. So great that your garden produced so much this year! Nice work! And woo hoo! You got the manuscript off.
Mal_ Crossing fingers for you! That is so awesome. I can't wait to see pics! :)
AFU- First frost today. DH finally replaced the bedroom windows on our house yesterday. The windows have only been in our garage for a year! So glad to have that done! The kids are both sick. Maeve is a week in and the cough and snot will not let up. Fiona just started coughing. We have not been sleeping well and I'm wondering if by some miracle we might all be able to nap today.
2 weeks in a row of getting out by myself without the kids. It feels really good. Next weekend we are going to bite the bullet and leave both kids with a sitter for a couple of hours. A little nervous about leaving Maeve since she has only ever been with DH or my sister (once during vacation). DH and I really need time together though so we are going to go out to breakfast and a long walk somewhere. I know Maeve will be fine and our relationship really needs this.
