It’s time for sharing caffeinated beverages again. Your choices today are Seattle’s Best K-Cups, Swiss Miss hot chocolate, or Coke Zero. For food, we have a couple of Little Debbie cakes left over from the Blogiversary and there’s a box of Halloween cake mix sitting on my counter if you’re in a baking mood (and have two extra eggs).
So, if we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m sick to death of this monsoon weather we’re having in SC. Over the past two weeks, I think we’ve gotten a break from rain maybe once or twice. We’ve been cooped up in the house over the weekend, since flood warnings are in place until tomorrow. I know some streets in my area are flooded over thanks to Facebook, so no point in taking risks.
If Accuweather is right, it looks like the weather will get nice around Tuesday and stay that way for a few days. Mid to upper 70s and sunshine. Hooray!
This will be great for LM’s soccer, too, since in the past month, they’ve only had two practices and one game (two canceled due to rain). Now maybe I will be able to decorate for Halloween. I have never liked decorating for the holidays much, but Little Man loves it, so I’m going to try to do a good job with that for the holidays coming up.
While we were trying to avoid leaving the house, Sam and I thought we might have to go to the urgent care last night. Baby Girl was wearing her rain boots in the house (they make a lot of noise, which she loves), and she tripped and fell forward and smacked her head on the edge of the coffee table. Fortunately, I had put foam covers on the coffee table two days before (which she pulled off and I replaced), so she didn’t hit the wood. But, it was still a hard hit and she was crying her little heart out.
I looked online for symptoms of concussion in toddlers and we kept a close eye on her. After monitoring her for a couple hours and determining that she was probably fine, the girl stumbled in the kitchen and smacked the back of her head. She cried for a while, but still seemed fine, thankfully, outside of being more loving than normal by giving extra hugs and kisses. (And she seems fine today, too.)
So, tell me about your weekend. And if you have any Halloween costume suggestions, I’d appreciate it. I prefer mildly offensive ones.
