this could be the longest october evah

Well Michael is coming along. Thanks for asking, those of you who asked anyway. It was a bit touch and go there earlier today when he decided that since he felt better he didn't need to take all of his pain meds. A whole lot of pain later he came to the conclusion that perhaps he was feeling better because of the medication. So we're back on track.

His surgery was of the carpal tunnel variety meaning he is down to one hand. Luckily this time around it's his right one (he's a lefty) so I'm hoping it will make things a bit easier for him. The kids have been pretty good and I'm trying to be a good sport about having to change all the diapers... I mean pull ups... I mean panties..... ahhh who am I kidding she's never going to toilet train...., give all the baths, feed us all and basically be Mike's right hand. Literally.

Of course we're only one day in and Mike's already claiming he has cabin fever and is rapidly going stir crazy. And I've already ducked out to Wally with my Mom and TLP where I bought some beautiful new beads and two magazines. That's right TWO magazines. I earned it.

What is TLP?
What magazines did you get?
I love magazines, Shan. Dave says I "cannot go past a magazine rack without buying something". It's almost kind of hurts not to pick up ~something~!! ;-)Well...there could be worse addictions, I say.

Poor Mikey. He is going to get so bored. :(

Hope Michael is feeling better and that next week goes a little faster.

Normie - TLP is my Mom's bestest bud. Actually short for a silly nickname Michael gave her. I picked up the latest issues of Chatelaine and Canadian Living. Love the recipes. And yes Michael is bored. So bored that today he watched a movie and then locked himself out of the house and then destroyed our door trying to get back in.

Julie - me too!!!

Widney - he is thanks Simone!
