We’re sick again

Ugh. The kiddo stayed home again today. It started yesterday afternoon—sneezing. Then later in the night he said his throat started to hurt. :( He was up all night, and then finally fell back asleep at 7am. Obviously I can’t send him to school at 8:30 then. So, he stayed home. Going to have the husband take him to the doctor later.

I love the fall and this kills me that he’s been so sick throughout most of it. All my fall plans down the drain. I wanted to go to the local nursery to check out the big corn stalk maze, along with their pumpkin bowling.  Now we’re stuck inside. Bleh. And of course this means he’s going to get me sick, and I always end up worse than him and I also just got over being sick. It’s like the flu shot mocks me:

Flu Shot: Ha ha ha. You’re protected from the flu—but not from the cold!
Me: I know.
Flu Shot: So now you’ll suffer a cold every other week for blocking the flu!
Me: I know.

On a positive note, when the kiddo gets sick, he’s not one to be mopey. So he’ll act all normal, just be coughing and sneezing all over the place. Wait, that shouldn’t be positive should it?

Sigh. Time for more coffee.

Happy Hump Day!

Woo Hoo. Here we are on Wednesday. Almost through with the week, thank goodness. Saturday we have family coming over so I’ve been desperate to get the final Halloween decorations up and the house cleaned. It’s been soooo chilly (which I love) but I’ve been freaking sick again. Not sure what it is this go around. Started with a scratchy throat, now I’m just full of mucus. Fun stuff, I tell ya! And on top of that, my TMJ is acting up. Again. Which though, makes me think it’s all sinus related. Which is better than a cold I guess. ;) Just thank goodness I got the flu shot when I did! Speaking of which, the kiddo got his on Saturday, so he’s covered. Now to nag the husband into getting his. ;)

Happy Day—enjoy yours!

Happy October!

Happy October!

October 2nd. And it actually FEELS like October. Woo Hoo. *Ü*

We’re suppose to go to Family Fun Night at a nursery, but the weather may not hold out. Plus, it would just be me and the kiddo. So, it’s still up in the air. I’ve got decorations to get up anyway. Apparently, I was “on his ass” to get the fall decorations out of the garage and I’ve yet to decorate. Of course, I’ve put some stuff out. It’s really my Halloween stuff that is the bulk of it. That’s going out either tonight, if the Family Fun Night is a bust or tomorrow, when it’s storming out.

I also got my Vera Bradley bag I ordered the other day. It’s a bowler bag, normally $72—got it for $28! Woo Hoo! And I was even more surprised at how it arrived.

How awesome is that? I’ve never ordered directly from VB, so the packaging was a total surprise! And I couldn’t beat the price. Of course it was for certain colors only. The one pictured, the one I got, is the Mod Floral Blue. I have a larger bag in the Mod Floral Pink and I love it, so I grabbed the blue this time. So now I’ve got a nice, fallish bag to use. It looks REALLY nice with jeans. Yay!

Here Today…Aragon Tomorrow

OPI's Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow!

OPI's Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow!

I’ve been in the fall mood which often reflects on my nail colors. I go dark during the fall and winter. So I picked three colors from OPI’s Espana collection: Here Today…Aragon Tomorrow (green), Give Me Moor! (purply brown), and Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees (dark grey w/purple tone). Right now, the toes and fingers are Here Today…Aragon Tomorrow.

I have never done green. Not even the fluorescent green of the 80′s/90′s (and recent). But let me tell you, this is one fantastic color! You can’t really tell it’s green unless the light is hitting it, otherwise it just looks black. I also had to put on two coats. I think the next time I go to use it, I’ll go get a manicure and have them put it on. It’s a brutal color to paint with.

I haven’t tried the other colors other than a stripe on each nail, but from what little I saw, I know I’m going to love them too!
