Today started out pretty rough. Woke up MOTN with another fever. It was gone by morning, but a headache, sore throat and tight feeling lungs took its place. Such shitty timing, I'm supposed to leave for a girl's weekend at the beach tomorrow. And then my dad called to tell me they were putting their cat down. They got her when I was 12, so for a time she was my cat too. She's 17 and I know it's time, but it's so hard knowing she's not going to be around much longer. Lo is definitely a bright spot today. He's been very sweet and even has been happy for all his diaper changes. (Go figure.)

ashlantic sorry for the rough morning. I hope you feel better soon. & hugs for the cat ((())) that's never easy.
The cookies are Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Cookies. It's a new recipe I found last night so fx they turn out good. They're actually "healthy" as far as a cookie goes. Less than 100 calories a piece. So that's got me a little giddy
Not much going on at our house today, DH has been helping his dad who is an electrician. It will be nice to have the extra money but that means he leaves super early in the morning and doesn't get back until late because of his music at night.

We are just hanging around home this morning. I think we might check out a new running club tonight at a local brewery. I just wish it wasn't so hot here. The good news is that a "cold" front is coming over the weekend and it should get in the low/mid 90's next week.
ourcrazynavylife if they turn out, share the recipe, please! And re: gallery wall. The symmetry of the 2nd one appeals to me I like the 1st one as well, but it feels like something is missing. Is there anything else you could add to the right hand corner of the 1st one? nemomof2 you are a trooper basically solo parenting! Glad you're feeling a little better. BabyStandish lol now I feel like a wimp for complaining about our temps here. We've been in the 90's but it's been crazy humid. The air just feels thick. kcrus thanks! How are things going for you? Hope life is still calm!
ourcrazynavylife I like what you picked overall for the pics. It looks beautiful. ashlantic Yay for happy diaper changes. I'm trying the "give a heads up" approach today. So far, so good. BabyStandish Yay for breweries! And for running clubs to help burn off beer calories! littlelion DH hates working from home. He gets distracted way too easily, more likely to play games than work.
nemomof2ashlantic I'm ok- I had to do a steroid burst (long story) and now that I am done, I feel kinda cruddy and worn out. I'm sure it will turn around soon. Or maybe I just need more coffee today? As for home life, things are steady. The kids like school, my H is doing well in his therapy, and I'm slowing picking away at my GIANT task list before I go back to clinical in a few weeks. Thanks for checking on me!
Met insurance people and dropped off the truck for repairs (from deer). They gave us a brand new 2017 Jeep Cherokee, only 58 miles on it from driving it from Denver to me. It's really nice, but I miss my sunroof and it's hard going from a huge V8 to a 4 banger. (#FWP I know lol) Should hear back later today or tomorrow morning about what's needed to be fixed and how long it will take. We did have previous damage from a hit and run in a parking garage (DH came out from work to find purple and yellow paint down the side), a bird I nailed at 65 mph, and a FIL who can't park. I know we are getting most of the driver's side front end fixed and a new headlight. I have no idea what to make for dinner. I'll probably end up making a parm crusted fish (cod on sale) with salad. I bought a pound of pine nuts from Sams Club and have been finding every excuse to eat them before they go bad. I've already made pesto and an arugula salad with pine nuts and parm. They are so good. *drools* All right. Off to do laundry. I have to finish ours before the IL's come back and take it over. I have 24-48 hours to pull off a miracle.

We're doing pretty good here. Mh is driving me crazy though, he's home a lot but not reeaalllyyy helping with B or around the house much more than when he was working and he's just getting down about not being able to find a job. I get that it sucks but it's not like it's been easy for me, plus I just try to be grateful for what we do have and the fact that he has the video skills that he's been able to get some work. I'm really hoping one of his leads is going to pan out asap!! B has been pretty adorable lately and is really repeating tons of words now. He says 'bless' when someone sneezes (even himself lol) and says thanks when you give him something (or when he gives something to you ha) but when he isn't happy he lets you know and there's been a lot more high pitched screaming that I could do without! Hoping he sleeps through the night!!
