Right now I’m sitting on the couch…Amon is sitting beside me after he downed his bottle. We’re having a pretty cool day so far. I’m getting everything ready for the hospital and packing the wee big Kelley’s bags for their overnight stays. I’m also baking. Is it normal to take bake goods to the hospital? I think it should be.
Josh said last night, “We should really get some before pictures of Amon.” I agreed. You know, before he gets that killer scar on his chest that all the ladies will swoon over when he’s older.
I’m really trying to prepare a months in a advance for birthdays and Halloween since we’ll be out of commission for a while. This guy turns 30 Saturday. We’ve been together officially 1/2 our lives. I like that about us.
I adore Halloween. I may go so far to say it’s my favorite holiday. I know some people don’t dig it and that’s cool, but I love it. I took the kids to a costume store the other day to let them get some ideas about what they wanted to be. It was pretty much a no brainer for each of them deciding what they wanted to be and I let Harper pick Amon’s costume. Then I went to work looking the internet over for much better prices. Success. Can I say right now this may be the best Halloween ever!
My polaroid is still pretty awesome. I plan on taking lots of pictures with it at the hospital of visitors and doctors and staff and nurses, etc. I know Amon won’t remember this at all, so I want to try and document this life changing event for him as best I can.
I’ve also been searching for the perfect globe…size and color…to take with us to the hospital too. It arrived today in the mail. I want all of his surgery team and nurses and cardiologists and visitors to sign it for him. I want him to have something he can keep forever.
This stellar number 6 arrived in the mail yesterday and I.Am.In.Love! It’s the perfect chippy redish orange paint color ever.
This happens every single day now. It never fails. I like them. Like a lot, a lot.
And a nice lady on craigslist totally made my day when she posted 50+ vintage wood thread spools for $10. I about wept. I’ve been looking for a large lot of these for a while, but they are always too expensive. My hospital stay just got a bit more crafty. Super excited to use them. Thank you craigslist lady.
Hope your day has been filled with awesome things too.
