I can't belive that summer is over.  It went by so fast for us.

lily had a stomach bug all yesterday and though she was fine today, i kept her home because she had not eaten in 30 hours and was afraid to. so we stayed home and she played and watched tv while i filed and made a huge shred pile. i got so much done... stuff i have been trying to do for weeks. and i have so much room in the file boxes now. i have kept everything digital for the past couple years, but need to keep the older tax stuff and other important stuff until it rolls off the 7 year mark. there is still more cleaning and organizing to do, but isn't there always?

brady wants to be a power ranger (red) and lily wants to be a character from monster high - you know, mom, something creepy and dark and goth... i will be the spider lady, which is a made up halfa$$ costume, as usual. brady likes to call it lady spider.

Monster High - fun costume!! Thanks for the tip on oil pulling. I will try it! I had read about it when I first started researching coconut oil and it seems like a silly thing to do... but it can't hurt, right? it's worth a shot if it means avoiding massive quantities of antibiotics!!

Karen, I tried the oil pulling and I only lasted 5 minutes!! Vs. the 20 you are supposed to do it for. IDK how people can do that. You have a mouthful of oil and your mouth then continues to produce saliva until you are ready to explode! (My overactive gag reflex didn't help.) I guess I'll keep trying to work up my "stamina." LOL

Yep, i know it sounds silly. and i have no idea if there is any merit to the idea. i am trying it for the dental benefits, though i can not seem to remember to do it first thing in the morning, and with brady's constant questions, i find it hard to get through... i have only done it a few times.

Haha - I'm just picturing the game of "50 questions" with a mouth full of oil! LOL It's bad enough with a standard teeth-brushing session!
