I can't believe it has been almost a month since my last blog. I have to fess up and tell you that I have been "sucked" into the Facebook world. It's been a month or so now that I have been a member and so now the newness has worn off. So a-blogging we will go....

I know that I have some catching up to do but I know that when I go back and catch up that my blogs always turn it novels so if it makes you feel any better, we haven't really had much going on so that means not so much to blog about.

I will tell ya a little about today. It has been a good day, an easy going day. It's just me and the kids today. Oh yeah, I guess you may not know but for the last 2 weeks Jason has been on his ED rotation at Bertie County Memorial (it's about an hour away from here). His schedule for this rotation is like this: Works Tues, Thurs, Sat from 8am until 8 am the next day. Then the week after that he'll only work one day and goes back to the 3 days. So he has an easy week and then a busy week and goes back and forth until the 6 weeks is over. So his first 2 weeks have been very slack but today was his first day of his first busy week. So he's been home a lot which in some ways are good but it's challenging too.
Anyway, it's just me and the kids today. While Jonas was taking his nap (he's pretty much just down to one nap a day now), Maddie and I worked on her Halloween outfit. She is super excited about it. I think she's more excited about her costume than getting candy. If you know us then you know that we ALL love to dress up for Halloween. So I'll be working on all of those as Halloween approaches. I"m not going to tell ya what we are planning on dressing up as, we love to keep it a secret. I don't know why but we do. I'll probably slip up at some point but I'll try not to. Anyway we started making it this morning, made a pattern and then measured and cut fabric and all that. Later, I started the sewing part. It looked so cute. I had Maddie try it on for me...UH OH!!!! It didn't fit. I don't know how I could have done that. I was so mad at myself. I wanted it to be fitted but I guess I just didn't measure right. So what does that mean? That means spending more money to buy more fabric. That makes me so mad. Well anyway, I"m not going to dwell on it.
Other than that, today was good. We played outside. We had great weather. It was nice and cool but not cold. I love it. Fall is here!!!! The kids were good today. Not too much drama in the house today. It was just a simple but good day.
