Blaze updates

My little fella is now 13lb and 13oz as of Friday, Oct. 20. I bet he's a bit more than that now, because he's been eating so very well all weekend! He's the sweetest babe... he laughed for the first time the other day because his darling sister brought him a toy and played with him. He really seems to love seeing Jesse and Ivy when they stop by and spend a minute or two with him!

He really seems to like church, and all the people who want to love up on him. We're really, amazingly blessed!

My day...

This is a cross posting... too tired to write something different than what I put on my board today! :)
We have construction/interior repairs going on, so I'm likely to be tired all week... but I'm thankful it will soon be done!
I got SOME sleep last night, between 1:30 am and 6:30 am... hoping to get to bed by about 9 tonight. The repairs are going well... the hard part is just keeping everything done and out of the way for the contractors. All our furniture in the living room is smushed together, makes for interesting tv watching! :)

We went to the pumpkin farm in Half Moon Bay this morning... (google it, soooo gorgeous over there!) Kids had so much fun on hay rides, etc, and when they found out that we were home schoolers and not part of the Public School group, they ended up giving us lots of free rides and extra turns. Apparently the PS group that was there at the same time was extremely rude and abusive, even throwing gourds at the tractor driver!!! My kids shocked them by being oh-so-polite and thanking them for the good time, etc., so we ended up being given "treats" all the way around the place! I guess "common courtesy" stands out these days?

Then we ran home (the ocean was ever so blue today!) and picked up Andrew who'd picked up deli sandwiches and packed us a picnic, which we voraciously consumed at our little park, the B
Bay was gorgeous today too! There was a goose that Jesse went to chase, only it didn't run away like all the others usually do... instead it turned it's neck around and stared at him, like, "Ok Buddy, you wanna peice of me? Bring it!" That goose (we nicknamed him "The StareMaster" let Jesse get within a foot of him before Jesse realized that the goose was probably gonna win this one! Jesse ran away just in time! haha! The goose gave him a look that just eloquently seemed to say, "Yeah, I thought so!" LOL!

Now we are at yet another really nice library. I mean, wow, they really do up libraries nicely around here. I can smell the java beans... mmmm... great computers, about a hundred nice chairs and couches, feels like I'm in some really great hotel lobby... volunteers roaming around asking if you need anything... I almost ordered one of those drinks with the little umbrellas and scheduled a massage! *wink*

Actually, I'm plain exhausted... heading home as soon as I can work up the energy to get my car out of the parking garage... the contractors finished early today... tomorrow they paint.

I woke up this morning mid way through a list... :) I'm goofy, sometimes I wake up in the middle of something really silly. :) (Sometimes I wake up with a beautiful scripture, or a lovely song, and sometimes, well... here ya go!)

Why I am suited for prison life...
-Somebody else does the cooking, the cleaning and the laundry
-Plenty of time to read
-Church service comes to you
-Never have to worry about what to wear
-Plenty of company, large mission field
-Assured of at least *one whole hour* a day outside!

-lack of privacy (used to that already)
-open bathroom (used to that, too)
-inmates fighting (same here)
-poor interior decorating (hahaha! won't even say it!)
-loss of freedoms to go where you want and do what you want (again, totally used to that!)
-the guard may look at you with a gleam in his eye (well, that'd be an improvement! rofl3.gif haha!)
