They grow up too fast

Saturday, September 20, 2014

All four of my children are taller than me. Which 3 of the 4 are boys so I would hope they would be! I am not quite 5'3"!!

But my youngest, the baby girl is now about 5'4" or 5'5". The Dr did say that looking at her bones, it appears she is done growing though!
She is moving around better on her crutches and we go to see the Dr again on Tuesday and hope to hear more good news!
The biggest struggle is she can't ride the bus because she can't haul the back pack with her crutches so we have to take her! ugh! Hoping this all ends soon!
Have a great weekend all!

    I'm barley over 5'1'' and that means pretty much EVERYONE is taller than me. Although both my grandparents are under 5 feet. At least I'm taller than most kinds under 10, LOL.

    Mikhail will probably pass me (& his dad) within the next year. We're both 5'9". Mikhail probably 5'6". I've got one nephew who is 6'10". Another 6'8". Dr says Mikhail will likely pass 6'2".

    They sure do, don't they! Crutches are the hardest thing in the world

    Glad your DD -- your BABY! -- is doing better. Yes indeed, they do grow up way too fast.

AT 4 ft. 10.5 in, I would be hard pressed to find many taller than I am! For sure my kids are.

DS is 5 ft. 10 and DD is about 5 ft. 5 in. Go figure -- my dad is 6 ft. 2.5 in., my brother is 6 ft. 3 in, and my little sis is 5 ft. 7 in. Mom is 5 ft. 8 in. All brown hair, brown eyes, but not me -- blonde and green eyes.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Friday, September 19, 2014

Made some for the first time tonight and believe it or not, hubs loved them! I have no idea what type of "green" tomato you use, but I accidentally picked a green one and thought, oh well, maybe I will try it.
Alls I know is they were a hit in this house and I will do it again!!!

Have a great one!

    Green toms are also good to make raspberry jam. It tastes EXACTLY like the real thing.. Fried eggplant is good if you have an extra,,same method, breading too!!

    They are good. With the storms that we have had, I pulled a lot of green tomato's out of the garden. I cut them up and made refrigerator tomato's and they are a big hit.

Have a great weekend!!

Ready to Fall into Autumn!!

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Are you ready to Rock October? It is my favorite month and yes I know it is still a few weeks away but with the beautiful weather we are getting, it has me ready for October!!!
I plan to finish September strong and make an even better October!
I found that if I don't have junk in the house to eat that is unhealthy, it limits any chance of bad binges! Because let's be real, chances are, I am not going to take the time to actually "make" something unhealthy, sweet and bad for me to eat!
Have a great day!

    Your post reminded me that I made an awesome pumpkin chili recipe last fall. I'm looking forward to making it soon. I wasn't sure I'd like it, but it was great!

    October is my fav too! It's also the busiest month of the year for me. So this year will be the first time in my entire life that there will not be Halloween candy in the house. My son is at college and my daughter is a cheerleader and has a football game on the 31st. My husband is going to the game, I have to run the snack bar, so.......the lights will be out at our house this year. Kind of sad, but I'm glad that we won't have a basket of candy that I would pick at for a month!

daughter update

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Quick update. We went back to the Dr today. He removed her casting, took out 20 staples, replaced the wrapping and put the brace back on. He loosened up the brace a tad bit. Told her she could finally take a shower, she then exclaimed!!! She was going to take 2 showers!! she had to sit in the shower on a chair but it worked for her.
He wants to see her next week and the following week after that so it looks as though she will be on crutches for at least another week or two.
Complete misery! I am having to do all the house chores and frankly, it isn't fun one bit!! I know, not a time for me to have a pity party! lol
That is the update we have thus far!
Have a great week all!

    Would it be possible for you to scale back your housekeeping and do the minimum necessary - to help keep your sanity, if nothing else? You can't take care of your daughter as you'd like if you're not taking care of yourself first - and that's not selfish, just common sense! (Think of it in the same way as what flight attendants advise wrt placement of oxygen masks - put one on *yourself* *before* doing so for your child(ren).......)

Good news on how your daughter is improving - here's to a quick and complete recovery ASAP!

one down .......

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

We have one room all but done. Hubs needs to add the trim around the floor but I am not too sure I am going to wait on him to get it done. He has the next 2 days off. Then after that, He works all 3 days for the weekend. So if he doesn't get at least some of it done, he is going to be force to work around furniture!
I truly can not take the mess any more! It is maddening to live in such clutter!!! We can't wait to see how beautiful it will all come together too!
The carpet in that room looks stunning! It looks like a brand new room!
As soon as I can, I will put up some pics!
Have a wonderful week all!
