I'm expecting it to be mad quiet here on the Sunday Salon front, since most of you guys participated in the readathon. I spent the morning reading everyone's updates while catching up on Jersey Shore. My readathon experience once again had the intentions but ended up in a #majorfail.
I finished one book (Want To Go Private) and got about halfway through another (The Maze Runner). But then Life gets involved AGAIN. This is been a crazy year folks. I think I was asleep by 9PM. One of these readathons I'll actually stay focused!
IN OTHER NEWS....my baby boy, Corki, gained half a pound this past week which is fantastic. Realistically I know that he is still sick, but it gives me hope that he'll be around a lot longer than what we anticipated. Also, we have a new addition to the family. Her name is Stella and she's six months old. All of her siblings got adopted out and she remained by herself for like two months. It just broke Di's and my heart. (Evidently people don't like black cats?) We took her home Wednesday and she's been a big bag of excitement. The poor thing had been in a cage all of her six months.
ALSO...I got my first stitches ever! Last week I was making tacos and ended up slicing my knuckle with the bean can. I didn't think anything of it, but it wouldn't stop bleeding. After driving around for a bit of an hour to find a walk-in that was actually open, we found one right before its closing time. They thought I was a weirdo for laughing so much. But truly, I felt pretty damn outrageous. The sucker only needed two stitches. I still have them in because the knuckle just won't close up. One of our nurses at school said to hold out cuz if it opens after the stitches get taken out they can't restitch. What the what? It's a pain I tell you.
FINALLY...we have our first field trip this week. We're walking the kids to the park, about a mile away. You guys! These kids have never been to a park. They keep asking what do people do there?! So we're bringing basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, lunches. Plus today, I'm heading up there to check out a trail by the river. I want to make sure that it's not flooded. But we might have prime gator spotting!
Hope everyone has a fantastic week.
