DYK my parents are settled into the nursing facility, and even have a room together.
DYK they may only be there for a couple of weeks; we'll see.
DYK my dad's dream is to die in his own home, so he will do everything in his power to make it back home.
DYK after surviving this past week, I truly believe he has the power to will himself to make it back home.
DYK this is all so incredibly surreal.
DYK with Abby's gift ball (in party streamers), I did girly stuff...started it with a shower scrunchy sponge; included bath gel; fun soap; flavored lip balm; mini emery board; etc. You could do that for each gender of kid. What was funny with hers is that hers was a sleepover birthday party, and the girls unwrapped it in a restaurant where we went for brunch. Abby didn't even know what I had created, and really enjoyed it.
DYK the restaurant staff also like it.
dyk and Ellie is being.... ugh a toddler
dyk we put her in bed at 6:45 b/c she was having meltdown after meltdown just crying, whining, fussing, etc
dyk and she never did go to sleep so we've gotten her back up and she's just being cute as can be lol
dyk but why couldn't she be cute earlier and stay up until her bedtime? oy.
dyk she brought me my cup, "Here's you water, Mommy." then checked to see if Daddy had water.
dyk we were playing Hands and Feet and in the final round, me and E went out and left the guys with both hand and foot and Sean tossed his cards on the table and wouldn't count them up so we could get the final score
dyk with a sour look on his face and as soon as I went out I KNEW he was going to behave that way.
dyk right now it's 71 %
dyk we are in front of the cold front
dyk behind the cold front it's 36 degrees
dyk cold front will be here in morning when our temps will plummett and then only warm to mid-50's
