Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Fall Fun...and other ramblings

I finally made it out to Walmart yesterday to pick up some things I needed. I was able to get some more bottles and nipples, some 'gas' drops for Autumn (really could have used those days ago), some nursing items, and a few groceries. Thanks to a friend and a couple of my aunts, $30 worth of that was at no cost me! Logan came along to help me lift things, such as the case of cokes and the 10 lb. bag of potatoes we purchased. Even thought it was just grocery shopping, it was nice to spend some alone time with my oldest son. :)

Last night was the Fall Fest at our church. It began right after the Saturday night service, which lets out at about 7:15 p.m. Typically, Emma is in bed by then, but we made an exception and all went together....the kids wore their costumes. I'll post pictures of them soon. There were several games to be played with candy as a reward...also a dunking booth, a blow-up slide, and a bounce house. The kids got free popcorn and Karl bought each of them a cherry-flavored Italian Ice...well, Emma shared with Logan. She kept wanting "mo-uh!" from everyone. I think they all had fun...and got some candy. Emma even played one game and got a few pieces. We plan to trick-or-treat tonight, so I'm sure they'll have more 'booty' after that! We're planning to be here for a little while to hand out candy as well...we'll see how many kids stop by.

We have not made our Halloween cookies yet, though I did get the needed ingredients. I think those will have be done after the fact...they'll still taste good, no matter when we bake them.

I see the doctor again tomorrow. I still have a tender spot where they said last week there is a remnant of infection. I have not had any fever, chills, drainage, or redness, so hopefully the tenderness will go away soon as well. I'm not sure if the OB will want me to have more meds for it, but she said previously that the next step, if needed, would be IV antibiotics at the hospital. I'm praying that will not be necessary.
