And then

Thursday I got Tubey removed.  It actually didn’t hurt at all (yay for numbness!), and just for fun, I did look at the part that had been living inside my leg.  Um, GROSS.  I mean, really, gross.  The cool thing is how fast that little hole healed up…it’s still a little icky, but for the most part, it was like magic!

I started yesterday wearing my sexay compression stocking. Very snug but not too bad…until today that is. Today, after I had been walking around the house, cleaning up a bit, it started to bug me. Upon further inspection, it had slipped down my leg and was bunched around my knee. Huh.  Not going to stop a lot of swelling if it doesn’t stay up, now will it?! I obviously either didn’t have it up high enough (yes, it’s a thigh high) or it’s really not the right size.  Although, my upper inner thigh IS still fairly swollen, so that may have something to do with it.  Either way, pain in the arse!

The boys had their last soccer game today. It was windy and cold and I’m pretty sure the parents were more excited for the end of the season than the kids were!  When we got home, I put together all the pictures from the season and I’m going to order a photo book.  Normally, I would have made a scrapbook album, but apparently life has made other plans for my time and the photo books ARE super easy and inexpensive!

I’m working on the photo books for the grandparents as well.  Last year was the first year, so I did Birth to 5 for Matt and Birth to 3 for Preston.  This year I am doing one book of both of them, September of last year to August of this year (after birthdays to birthdays).  The crappy part is that sometime in March of this year, I lost a BUNCH of pictures from my computer.  I have no idea how, if it was one of the boys or just a glitch or if I did it accidentally, but either way, I am missing photos from October 4th through February 8th.  Which means that, especially since my memory SUCKS, I basically lost 4+ months of memories of my boys’ lives.  NICE. Also, it makes it hard to make a complete book with CHRISTMAS AND HALLOWEEN missing!! GAH.  Am trying a recovery, but last time it didn’t work; crossing fingers for better luck this time around.

Tomorrow we’re heading to the pumpkin patch and hopefully throwing some Halloween decorations up around the house.  I’m so behind because of my surgery and recovery it’s crazy…not to mention that Preston’s costume is NOT EVEN CLOSE to being completed (spray paint FAIL)! ARGH….

Hopefully I will be posting some happy fall pictures of mah boys tomorrow…until then! xoxo

Yay for the tube being removed! I’m glad I’m not the only mom out there who hasn’t started on their kid’s Halloween costume. Have fun at the patch!

we haven’t done halloween costumes yet, and the kids need them for school on tuesday! augh. this time of year is so crowded.

i had a compression stocking — they do tend to slide down. gravity, i guess.

I have to give people who make costumes credit. I’d rather spend money and save my sanity. Can’t wait to see the finished project though!

So glad to hear things are going better. I bet you are one sexy bitch with your thigh-high 🙂
Don’t you just love photobooks. They are super simple…and I love doing one each birthday. Quick and easy 🙂
Miss you!
