Thankful For the Weekend

This has been a busy week.

On Monday, on my drive to work, I hit a patch of ice as I was coming around a curve and onto a bridge, and slid all over the road before hitting the bridge barrier with the back right side of my car. We just found out yesterday that it is a total loss. Boo. Although Average thought it was a grandma car, I really liked my 98 Camry. It served us well for the past 4+ years and spending time on looking for a new car was not on my list of things I was hoping to do soon.

In other news, I had two meetings with doula clients this week. It is so exciting to be working with expectant families as they prepare for the births of their babies!

Today is the birthday of my husband, a.k.a Average. He is 29 years old today! He was able to get the day off work, so we actually have a 2-day weekend together, and he is enjoying himself laying on the couch and watching the Civil War. If you don't know what that is then you are not from Oregon.

Yesterday afternoon Sweet Pea came down with a fever. She had a rough night sleeping the night before, and again last night. Luckily we all were able sleep in today. We are nursing lots and giving her a fever-reducer when she will take it. She doesn't seem to feel sick currently but her nose is pretty stuffed up. Right now she is laying on the couch with her dad watching the game.

I don't have any photos to go with these bits of news, but I do have a few photos from Thanksgiving to share.

After the Thanksgiving Day 5k. Left to right :me, Sweet Pea (she rode in the stroller), Average, his sister, her husband, and another brother-in-law. It was a fun run to do as a family and ended at an indoor wave pool where we played for an hour or so,
