November 6, 2012

Presidential election day in the States, got my vote in, hoping for the best. I will be so glad when tomorrow is here. 
Ayla and I are fighting colds again, we've spent the past week stuck at home, and it's driving me nuts. Jessa says when we're better we'll have Mom watch Ayla and Sanatra, and get Sean out of the apartment and just clean like crazy. Hoping we can manage that this weekend. Family pictures got postponed until November 17, as I got sick the day we were supposed to have them done. However it does work out well in one way, Mom will get to get some pics of all four grandkids together. So after they're shared with us, I'll share a picture or two from LOL Photography of everyone. 
Found a fingering guide for the viola, that I ordered pretty cheap, and planning on starting to teach myself when that comes in. 
Ayla's going through a fear phase, she's afraid of the bathroom and the bedrooms. Pretty sure it's because they're dark, so we've got a projector nightlight for her room, and considering putting a Dream Lites on her Christmas list with family. Week of Thanksgiving, Ayla and I are going with my parents and Mckey to see family in Oklahoma, and back in time to have Thanksgiving dinner with Sean's family that Saturday.
Ayla and Sanatra October 25th.

It's gotten cold here, and I hate the cold, and with fall comes rain. I hate being cold, and I hate being wet, so being both is misery. Have pretty much been stuck at home lately, especially with being sick. Thankfully, Jessa and Sanatra, and our friend Dani come visit us when we're not sick. 
Had to buy some magic erasers as Ayla colored on the wall behind my couch. Those things work great, someone needs to find out what's in those and tell me so I can make them myself... 
I think Ayla's going to have a bunch of toys disappear when we clean. She doesn't play with 95% of them.
She's gotten better at expressing her opinions, and the attitude is growing. Her fear of the bathroom (she's not afraid of the tiolet, she has no problem flushing it) has led to many pairs of panties being changed because she'll hold it so long...working on that. I let her know when I'm going, and usually she'll go then, and that's helped. Still asking her if she needs to go. Can't wait for this phase to pass, but I guess it could be worse.

Other than that not much else is going on.After the apartment is cleaned thoroughly, and as long as I'm not sick again, I'm going to find a way to get a "me" day. I need it. 
Hope you all have a great week, stay warm, and try not to get sick.
