Random Thursday

First off… thank you for all the emails and messages on my last post. Wow! I’m not sure what else to say. Certainly my insecurities didn’t vanish just because I wrote that, but to know that so many others have them too just makes me feel like less of an “outsider.”
Ok, moving on… Remember ‘Random Thursdays’? Let’s bring that back, at least for this week, shall we?
I had a whole post written yesterday about a guy that I’ve been working with (a contractor, not a co-worker), I went on and on about what a sexist, insecure, pig-headed idiot he was… I read it again and decided it wasn’t nice, so I deleted it. Oh, oops…
We’ve started nightly dance parties in our house; it is the absolutely best way to end my day. We crank up the music and everyone dances around for 10-15 minutes. The kids get a little energy out and everyone is smiling and laughing by the end of it. You should see Olive dance, hilarious!
I never mentioned it here, but I had shoulder surgery again last month… It seemed to have gone really well and I feel so much better than any point in the last year (tomorrow is actually 1 year since the first surgery. Crazy.)
Halloween! This year Natalee was a mermaid and Olive was a fish. I made Natalee’s costume and bought Olive’s (Grandma Olive glued the pink bow on Olive’s and she made the “seashell” top for Natalee’s as I ran out of time before my surgery). Sean’s friends came over and brought their little boy, I’m pretty sure Natalee has a crush on him, she asks about him EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!

I got a new jacket for work. It’s one of those “high visibility” ones. Our bathrooms at work have those automatic sensor-type sinks and hand dryers, when I walk in there with the jacket on every sink and hand dryer turns on at the same time. It’s awesome.

A couple weeks ago we spent the afternoon at Urgent Care because Sean was “pretty sure” that Olive had swallowed a AA battery, she didn’t (thankfully), but I just have to wonder what the people that work there must think of us? “Say what? You think maybe your kid swallowed a (fairly large) battery??”
Here is O in her 'skinny' jeans, not too much is skinny about this kid. I just love her so much!
