Catch Up Time

Well, let's see....Graham will be two weeks old on Friday. He is doing well. He hasn't quite figured out when to sleep and when to eat, but he will when he's ready. His mommy hopes that is soon.

Matt will be home Friday late night. His girlfriend, Rebecca will be with him. We are really looking forward to their visit. We haven't seen them since Christmas.

A friend of mine will be in southern Illinois tomorrow and asked me for a list of Vintage things I am looking for. She said if she sees anything, she will text me a picture to see if I want it. How sweet is that?

Irv is busy working on that old window so we can turn it into something really cool for our shop. I also found a place online that sells the chalkboard vinyl in a big roll. Now I don't have to buy it on e-bay. It came today. Yippee! Now I can make more chalkboards!

I put my SNOW letters in Four Dog Day already. I know it is only October, but they were done and it's cold and snowing somewhere, so why not? I like them.

I fell off the healthy eating and workout wagon for a little while, but I jumped right back on this week. I even walked at lunch today. Chee Hoo for moi!

I need new clothes really really bad. My fall/winter clothes were looking pretty crappy last year so when I pulled them out this year and took a look, I knew they had to GO! So, I logged into Ann Taylor Loft the other night and had some fun. Of course I ordered some cute little sweaters and today it was almost 80 outside....but I've lived here long enough to know that winter is just around the corner.

I went to the GAP on my way home from work the other day to get some khaki pants for this fall and they had 3 pairs of womens khakis. Are you kidding me? It's fall and it is the GAP! How could they NOT have KHAKI pants??? That's what they are known for!! The girl said they aren't sure what happened and that they had lots of black pants. Black pants? I want khaki!! So I bought the pair right off the mannequin!

I took Friday off. We have a really busy weekend planned. We are spending the day at Tresa and Chris's in the city on Saturday and then Sunday is the Chicago Marathon. We will be down there cheering on Matt. His knee is pretty bad right now, so he isn't sure what's going to happen, but he is going to give it one heck of a try. He has trained so hard for this. I hope he can run. I miss being a spectator. It will be fun yelling, "Run Matti run!" :)

I also got my hair cut yesterday....really short. I'm sure I'll have some pictures of it next time.

Well, I really have some work to get done so I have to close for now. I will be back after this wild and wonderful weekend with lots of pictures and stories to share. Have a great rest of the week. Chat with you soon.

Oh, I went for my mammogram today......I hope you are keeping up with yours.

Graham is a cute little bug. Cannot wait to see the new cut. I love your etsy shop. You are so talented.

You have a busy life. Sweet little Graham. Good luck to Matt in the race.

Angela said...

oohh where in Southern Illinois??

I hope he can run in the marathon- it would be a shame to train and not get to run.

I want new clothes but I am not sure why since I will be inside all day now. I could stay in my jammies but I HAVE to get dressed, fix my hair, and put on make-up or I am just not productive at all.

Have you tried the chalkboard paint- you might get more bang for your buck and you can get it at Wal Mart

Oh and let's not forget adorable Graham- what a sweet little man.

That first picture of Graham just melted my heart. So adorable and so peaceful! Have a wonderful weekend. Hope Matt gets to run.

what a little cutie! love that picture of him.

sounds like you have a lot going on these days. congrats on getting back on the "health" diet. i need to. i'll do well for a while and then fall off for a while. right now, i'm sort of in between.

Matty said...

You're right, Graham will get into a sleep pattern on his schedule, and no one else's. I know 3 times over.

Sounds like you are quite the busy bee. That 5 year plan is really cooking.

Jen said...

What an adorable kiddo!

Blissed-Out Grandma said...

Wow, you are keeping busy! Sounds like happy times.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hi Kathy, Graham looks so sweet and peaceful sleeping. Two weeks old already- amazing. Hopefully his little body clock will get on track so Mommy can get some sleep.

Give him a little smooch for me.
