So yesterday Hubby and I went and bought the stroller/car seat.  Babies R Us is having a Columbus Day Sale and we got $30 off.  I was going to get it from Amazon, but apparently I waited too long.  The expected shipping date is within 1 to 2 months.  I certainly don’t want to risk it.  So with the money off at Babies R Us (BRU), it was practically the same price and they had a nicer color at BRU anyway.  🙂

I opted to go with the Graco Travel System.  It has the Snugride 30 car seat which has a great rating and so far I really like the stroller.  And a big thanks to Grandma for buying it for us!


Today I finally got some autumn decorations put up outside.  Not many but enough to get into the spirit of the season.

As you can see my marigolds are still in full bloom in the flower bed.  I want to buy 2 mum plants for the planters on the stoop then I will be finished.    Not quite sure what happened to my corn.  Last year the stalks dried out nicely and gave me that light tan color, but this year I have almost purple.  I guess it adds a nice bit of color to the display.


So bending over has become quite the task lately.  And thanks to Murphy’s Law, I seem to drop something at least once a day, usually more.  I just don’t have the room to bend with the belly these days.  So I tend to have to spread my legs out to lower my center of gravity and that usually helps.  Otherwise, I just ask Hubby to pick it up.  Trouble is when he isn’t here.  I would love to be able to train our dog to do it, but I don’t think I have the patience.  🙂


Had a pretty bad night of sleep last night.  As I was going to bed, my sciatica was acting up and I had a sharp pain in my right butt cheek.  So much so I could not move my right leg with out a stabbing feeling.  Falling asleep was next to impossible and I think I finally found a position that lessened the pain and was able to fall asleep about an hour after I went to bed.

We had to put the heat on last night,  I think the temp dropped into the low 30s or upper 20s. (During the day it is upper 40s to low 50s and I LOVE IT!)  But with a split level house you have to close the vents in the winter up stairs to get the warm air to stay down.  We did not do that last night and it felt really warm and woke both me and hubby up before 5am.  He went downstairs to watch TV and I stayed up in bed trying to fall back asleep.  About 6:15am or so I think I dozed off and then our dog started throwing up.  We both rushed to him and poor guy looked so sad.  We let him out and took him up to bed with us and we all tried to fall back asleep.  It worked until about 8am, when I seemed to be getting squeezed out of bed.  I was literally on the edge and Buddy was up against the pillow I use to lean on (helps with the side sleeping) followed by hubby snuggling with Buddy.  So I stayed in bed for about another 20 minutes until we all got up.

So not a great night.  Buddy is fine.  Not sure what caused it, but he is acting like nothing happened.  Hoping I can get a nap in today.

Hope everyone out there is having a great weekend!

Thanks for reading.
