Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{1Today is Monday, as you all know, which meant babysitting my little Munchkin for four hours. And..... it was a really good day! Friday and Saturday were not very good days (I was asked to work extra days last week). Munchkin was not feeling well because of his allergies, and he was quite cranky both of those days. Nothing I did made him happy. He wouldn't eat, he wouldn't nap, he cried everytime his dad came in and out.... yeah, they weren't good days. But, today was! Thank you God! :)

{2} Dad is going back down hill a little everyday. His speech is getting worse. His balance is really bad. His hands aren't working right and he gets really frustrated when we mention anything about it. Mom thinks another lesion is growing. She's going to call his doctor in the morning. 

{3} Has anyone noticed all the Halloween decorations going up at all the grocery stores and restaurants? I have. >_> Even every tv show is about Halloween. My family and I don't celebrate Halloween and all this Halloween stuff is getting quite annoying. Everywhere you turn it's "Spooky!" "Scary!" "Skeletons!" "Witches!" And Eldarwen's screaming, "I can't take it anymore!" lol

{4} Congratulations to a family at our Church who just had their third baby! A boy! :)

{5} Tonight my family and I made *drum roll please* Coke Floats! Well, some of them chose Dr. Pepper *gag*, but I am a Coke lover, no other will satisfy this girl. :)

I hope everyone had a lovely Monday! :)

12 Greetings from Elven Friends

Oh, boy... I know how a bad babysitting job can go. Not fun! So glad it went well for you today. Yay! :D

I know what you mean -- all the Halloween stuff can be really annoying. It's everywhere right now! O_O

Oh my goodness, look at that Coke float. I want one! I haven't had one of those in forever. And yeah, Coke is just way better than Dr. Pepper. Way better! ;)

Of course, I'll be thinking about y'all and praying!

Love you!

I love babysitting. I am praying for your family every day. I agree, Halloween is sooo anoying. I do an anual "Why do we celebrate Halloween" post every Halloween. Most people don't even know why we celebrate that. I do not clebrate halloween. Boo halloween...but that kinda gives someone the wrong idea.

Hi Mollie! I love finding new bloggers. :) I'm glad you left me a comment! I will be sure to check out your blog. ;)

Babysitting's a lot of fun, except when the baby is cranky. ;)

Halloween is so annoying! I can't wait until it's over. And you know what, a few days after it's over there will be Christmas stuff everywhere.

That coke float looks SO good! I love the pictures you got of it... so professional. :) Oh, and I agree, coke is way better than Dr. Pepper. :)

I got your letter yesterday and will write soon! I'm going to respond to your e-mail in the letter, too. :)

Love and hugs,

Oooh, I love pepsi floats! They're AMAZING. Dr. Pepper? *gags and clutches throat* it's Too sweet. It tries to choke us! Nasty elves mix-tid it. :) I'd take coke over dr. peper anyday, but I'd take pepsi over coke. :)

Kristina said...

I know, the halloween stuff is VERY annoying - and the worst thing is when the girls ask why people put fake spider webs on their bushes. We just took out thanksgiving decorations today - and it is soo much cuter than the ghosts that hang in some peoples window!


Näna said...

Ditto to the Halloween decor! Drives. Me. Crazy.

So sorry to hear about your dad...I'll keep praying for him and for your family!

And since it is now Tuesday: Happy Tuesday! But, of course, it's almost Wednesday so maybe it should be Happy Wednesday. Oh, well. I wish you a very happy day! How does that work:)

Love and hugs to you, dear!
