I am so thankful that I took Monday and Tuesday off, rested and finally started to get over the head cold/allergies I have been down with since last Sunday! No Quad Monday and no Tuesday Treasures.
I didn't even make up my bed for days! I'd get up for a little while and then slip back under the covers and nap. I have grossly underestimated the value of REST!
I did accomplish a few things while I was down and out, though.
While it is not nearly as much fun to take fall down as it is to put it up, I did it anyway!
I can't tell you how proud I am of Louis Dean - and myself! - for getting the old storage building cleared out and cleaned up so I could store my huge collection of 'debris' in there!!!
I only photographed the part that is clean and usable.
This is only about a third of the space that will be available. We will finish the rest of this clean up project this winter. At long last I will be able to store ALL seasonal decorations in areas that are accessible for me to take them out and put them up all by myself - if need be.
Louis Dean helped me so much by storing it away. I just put it all in the tubs or bags.
The house is now a blank canvas just waiting to be dressed for Christmas - which will begin tomorrow afternoon.
This morning I left the house by 10:00 heading for Quadville.
Amber's day was chock full with back to back appointments. First the vet and then the Children's ENT for Kailey. She swung by her house to leave Bandit The Cat and pick me up.
It was a good day for coloring.
First at the doctor's office......and later at lunch.
Our next stop was the Tea Place just up the street where we all got fancy flavored tea. Mine was a blueberry/pomegranate while Amber opted for a coconut flavored tea.
Then it was lunch at the Greek Restaurant right beside where we got our tea.
Our fourth and final destination was the movies!!
While Amber got the tickets, I took the kids to the video arcade.
They had so much fun and it didn't cost a dime!!
They are young enough to be impressed by all the lights and action.
They will learn about tokens soon enough!
We saw Pete's Dragon and we ALL loved it!
It was a good day and it was nice to be out and about.
My hat's off to Amber for all the energy she puts into her days.
She shared on Facebook an article about her life with quadruplets you might find interesting.
In other news, Summer finally got the injections for her back yesterday.
She has really been through as tough a time as she has ever had physically.
Being in pain for so long affects your mind and emotions.
It's only been a day so there's not any improvement yet.....but we are hoping there will be very soon.
Thank you for the kind words and prayers for my daughter.
Now! While I was gone all day, WHAT was Louis Dean doing??
Baking dinner rolls for the Thanksgiving meal at Nita's tomorrow.
AND he picked up at least 2 gallons of pecans from the front yard!
Now it's time for me to get in the kitchen and prepare the potato dish that I will take for the meal.
I love all the recipes I see on Facebook and actually make some of them!!!
Wishing you and yours a lovely Thanksgiving!
