Thursday Thirteen - Random Thoughts

Archived TTs ~ TT Headquarters
What's On My Mind

1. The weather here in central Arkansas this week has been very nice. Today is the best day all week. The high is 74°!

2. Tyler had a check up today. The doc gave him a clean bill of health. He had ran fever most of the night last night. (See post below) His pediatrician seemed to think it was some sort of virus that is going around since he's on antibiotics from strep throat he treated him for last week!

3. I am still angry with our dog, Oscar. He got out of his crate while I was gone to the doctor's office with Tyler. He chewed up a half a bag of Emily's diapers, opened (but didn't ruin them all) two new packages of baby wipes, and chewed up a rattle toy that I bought for Emily last week. Grrrrrrr...

4. My husband is going to deer camp this weekend leaving me alone with the three kids. I hope I am up for the challenge. I may need to invest in some acne treatments afterward from the stress, though!

5. My mother in law might have to come rescue me by the end of the weekend. The good thing is that she will if need be!

6. My mother in law is my hero! Yes, you read that right! I really do ♥ her.

7. My kids have learned about divorce this week. They are curious as to why some kids have "two" dads. I explained to them that I had two dads as well. Tyler is a bit amazed. He keeps asking who his "other" dad is. *LOL*

8. Shelby is "Kid of the week" at school this week. I get to go to her class tomorrow to read them a story. I plan to eat lunch with her as well.

9. That reminds me that I need to go talk to her teacher in the morning to find out for sure what time I am to be at school on Friday for the story.

10. So far this year for Shelby's school, we've had two fund raisers, year book advertisements, class T-shirts, & school pictures that have caused us to fork over money!

11. Oh, and we're still collecting Box Tops if you have any you'd like to contribute please click the link. Every little bit will help!

12. Oh, my Wordless Wednesday was a lizard, of course. If you click on the photo below, you can see it larger.

13. I have come to realize that if I want to get any photos of Emily without her big brother in the shot I have to do so when he's not here or he's asleep. He loves her to pieces and it's hard to keep him away from her!

Fun to catch up with your week in this manner! Sounds like you’ll have your hands full this weekend! Good thing your MIL can help as needed. The weather here in So Cal is going to be a roller coaster over the next few days … going from the mid 90s to the mid 60s and back to the high 80s over a 4 day period. Pretty crazy to consider, but I’m not complaining. LOL
Hugs and blessings,

Of course, before I knew anyone who was saving those durn box tops, I was just throwing them away... now none of my stuff seems to have 'em!
Hope Tyler's feeling better and that you get to have a few seconds of rest soon!

A good mother-in-law is a huge blessing! It is amazing what dogs will decide they want to "eat".

Patois said...

Lots of things on your mind, but you seem incredibly up for them all.

That's cute about Tyler and Emily. My nephew Kevan was the same with my niece Hayley. He was 7 when she was born and he just couldn't get enough of her.

This summer...he's 16 and she'll be 9 next month...he even let her run around with him sometimes. They are great together.
