1. Jack was hit by the "bacterial infection" bug last week and poor guy was grum-py. We went to the Dr on Tuesday b/c he had a fever, his eye lids were red/goopy (not pink eye), yellow runny nose, and he had a cough. His ears were perfectly clear. He was prescribed an antibiotic that NOBODY carried, but thankfully Kroger ordered it. Ben picked it up and informed me that it was "$700". SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS. Thank God for insurance and that we've met our deductible (and now pay $0 for drugs), b/c I really didn't feel like selling a kidney to pay for an antibiotic. Geesh.
|feeling better on Sunday....making a joyful noise!|
Jack is the worst medicine taker, ever. He literally runs as soon as he sees us coming with the syringe. Of course, a few days AFTER he's on his meds, his ear decides to start draining (which in tube terms means he has an ear infection). Fun. Ear drops and oral antibiotics are pure torture for a little guy.
2. A friend of mine posted on FB about collecting "blessing boxes" for Heart of Worship ministries. I signed us up for one and we received a 2 year old Haitian boy named Kerwens! I wanted us to go together as a family and shop for Kerwens, even if Jack had no clue what we were doing. I had such a fun time selecting the perfect outfit (even though there are NO shorts anywhere to be found here in TN) complete with a UT (university of TN) shirt and other fun things. I made sure to tell J that these were for our "Haitian friend".
I know he doesn't get it, yet. However, I want to instill the love of GIVING rather than receiving, with a grateful heart.
3. Saturday the boutique that my friend Sheena's jewelry line is in had a Christmas open house. For some odd reason, Ben AGREED to go with me! Of course it was only b/c his friends (Justin and Dave) would be there too. Lets just say, these three fit in like socks on a rooster! ha!
|SILLY! He's making a crazy face b/c the first 19 pics I took he wasn't looking...ha!|
|just some of her beautiful pieces!|
|me, Sheena and our friend Jen|
Her jewelry is gorgeous and she can create practically anything your heart desires!!! Check her out.
4. Friday is a certain someone's, ahem, MY, birthday! I used to celebrate for the entire month, but honestly I FORGOT all about it! Monday I decided we should make reservations and of course the place I wanted to go only had a 9:30 open. I'm too old to eat that late! Dave suggested the Music City Tippler, so we're going to try it out!! Can't wait!
Hope you all have a lovely rest of November and the greatest of Thanksgivings!
