Quick check-in, longer explanation later today, I hope...
Halloween was fun, we went to Fourth's BFF's neighborhood and our two families did the begging together. Really, really, really blustery and w-e-t that night. We all got wet, no exceptions, and broke a couple of umbrellas due to wind gusts.
Spent the afternoon and evening with Fourth in the hospital ER this past Sunday. Yup, Fourth, not Third. Fourth contracted a GI bug and had to have IV fluids and meds to set her aright. When a kid has the squirts out of both ends and then faints to top it off, you get a free ride to the hospital at my house. She is doing very much better, but still isn't on full solid foods yet.
I had a spell of the blues for week in there somewhere, but I feel much better. Overdosing on chocolate for the blues does not for a long-term strategy make... But it is a very effective method of belly and thigh plumping!
I need to reread that link badger posted here about Third Culture kids - interesting stuff. Thanks, badger.
Snow accumulation here. Blech. I like snow, but coupled with the time change so recently, I feel as if I have been catapulted into mid-winter from a warm fall with no notice.
Used book sale on this morning at the local county library - I will be there, right after I drop off Third to school. LOVE book sales!!
More fracking wells actively being drilled, more pipelines being buried, and a natural-gas power plant planned for this county. And hubby still wants to stay long-term. I feel OLD and cranky right now - we won't learn at all, will we?
Hope you all are safe and fed!
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
