Update October 8, 2022


It’s been a pause again, but here I am, back!

Sunday, we went to Olive Garden as a family.

Monday, M10 had his doctor appointment where we found that he’s been maintaining his weight at the minimum weight goal, which is nice. We’ll keep doing what we’re doing. We also went as a family to the Jack’o’lantern Spectacular at the Minnesota Zoo. It was quite amazing, and everyone loved it.

Tuesday, M10 treated me to a movie – we saw Avatar in 3D. I had seen it before, though not in 3D. M10 was amazed and awed. He loved the movie. During the day, IL3 had his occupational therapy intake. He was not qualified for fine motor skills, which he was in special education, but he qualified for feeding therapy. He doesn’t really eat a lot of solid food at home and wants the main portion of his calories to be from apple juice right now. He eats very little at daycare too.

Wednesday, D12 fainted in school, and we spent 3 hours in Urgent Care to be told there’s nothing wrong. Then we went out to dinner.

Thursday, I had a little extra time on my hands. D12 was supposed to have a procedure, but she ate something in the morning – we forgot to tell her not to. Now she has to wait till December! I’d like to say I accomplished a lot during my newfound free-time, but I relaxed. Which, I suppose, is an accomplishment in itself. The daycare teacher asked us to send IL3 in undies on Monday. That’s kind of her, because he purposely pees in corners at our house.

Friday was another calm day. I took a nap, then worked in the evening.

  1. Letter writing, what a novel concept! Of course most of us never write letters anymore; it’s a lost art. I got a long letter from my niece a while ago and it was SUCH a pleasure so I immediately wrote her back – and NOT an email. ๐Ÿ™‚ Lots of great seasonal books there. Hope you have a terrific week and find time to curl up with a good book.

  2. That neat seeing Avatar in theaters. Something I missed when it first came out. Plus 3D gives me a headache.
    Have a great week.


  3. I always like going to the Olive garden. And sounds like you had a busy week! Great pics. I hope everything is okay- fainting is kind of scary but yeah they don’t always find something wrong, you never know what causes things sometimes. Hope you have a nice week ๐Ÿ™‚
