october twenty-six

Sean got to stay home today. My mom was able to take Mack to daycare, so I didn't have to take Sean out of the house. He's got this wicked bad cough that has seemed to have gotten worse over the weekend. While I worked in my office today, somehow he managed to get a hold of one of my packs of post-it notes and stuck them everywhere behind me in my office. This pile he's got going on is actually contained after the mess he made. The unfortunate part is now he knows where I keep my office supplies and has been digging with his little fingers to see what fun he can find.

At lunch we made together a banana bread. It's super delicious. I don't see it making it passed tomorrow night. It'll be gone. Sean's already had 2 slices in one shot. It's that yummy and whole wheat too!

This evening after bath time and the kids were in bed, Jamie and I watched first the Habs game (We won again against the New York Islanders - we played them last week and won as well). I worked on my nephew's tube socks and made great progress on them. I am now just at the part before the toe decreases (which I am doing my own decreases, which I altered from the pattern I chose to follow - mind you - I modified the whole pattern actually and am doing the entire sock in 2x2 ribbing). After the Habs game we watched Heroes and then I watched last night's Desperate Housewives while Jamie went to go play on his computer for a bit. Now we're both going to go to bed. I think Sean will stay home again tomorrow - his cough hasn't really gotten any better since this morning, but at least it's certainly not any worse.

Oh, before I go, I wanted to tell you what happened to my cousin's kids (on my dad's side of the family). My (ex)Aunt (my dad's brother's ex-wife) called me up the other day to tell me that she washed her grandkids baby blankets, which my grandmother (their great-grandmother) crochet for them. One is almost 5 years old, and has had hers that long and the other has had his almost all his life as well, and he's 12 days younger than Sean. Anyhow, so she washed them, and hung them out to dry on hangers, since it was a nice October day. SOMEONE STOLE THEM! Can you believe it?? I can't either. It's freakin' disgusting. I told her it has to be teenagers/kids. She was like "Why would anyone want my grandkids used baby blankets?". She said they clearly looked loved and used... Anyhow, people in this world are truly sick and disturbed to do something like that. She asked me if she paid for the yarn, if I would make them each a new one. I will, I told her, but only have I am done with a few deadlines I am working on, which she said was okay. So I've picked out the yarn... and am almost done with a few deadlines and will get them done as soon as I can for her. She said that her grandchildren (who would be my 2nd cousins, as they are my first cousin's kids) haven't slept properly since they were stolen. I don't blame them... and I still can't believe someone would steal them - including the hangers they were on....

How terrible!!! That is absolutely despicable.

And Sean - peeking up at the banana bread, what a cutie!

Bea said...

Wow. Stolen? That's totally crazy. I hope Sean's cough is calming down.

I am still shocked someone would do that... what is this world come to?

Once again, I can't say it enough, thank you for the surprise - you are beyond lovely my friend. Do you want a pair?

Hugs,
K.

Dailaesse loves sticky notes. Especially the ones that pop up out of the dispenser. She loves them so much that she asked for her own. She leaves us little love notes all over the house now.

The banana bread looks so good! Do you just swap out whole wheat flour? Would love to have the recipe!

I can't believe anyone would steal something so precious. Of course I still can't believe people steal in the first place. There are so many resources for people who don't have what they need. Why on Earth do they feel compelled to take what doesn't belong to them? I hope they get a horrible case of the guilties and return the blankets.

I can not believe that still! Poor Zack and Jordyn!

PS - let me know if you want me to make one still...?

I can't believe somebody would steal something like that!

I'm sure they'll love their new blankets too, though.

Tara said...

Wow, who steals a baby blanket? That's just... no words.

Awww poor kids..what will they do without their blankies. My boys have both been sick. Seems like they pick up everything when they're in school/daycare. I love the new blog look!
