My mom invited the kids and I over for the day so Brady could focus on framing our basement all day without any big interruptions or nap times to work around. We have been anticipating a day or two like this for a while now, and it felt so good!
Brady was home while I took Dekker to school this morning, and he had everyone dressed and ready to go when I arrived back. I took the kids to my moms and Brady got to work! He and a guy from work had started framing the interior walls a long time ago, and they had made pretty good headway, but there was a good chunk left to finish. But he got to it, and I didn’t hear from him until he came by my moms and we all had lunch together.
As for my mom and I, it was kind of a weird day, if I’m being honest. We both felt a bit off. A bit out to lunch. Foggy. But we just didn’t push it, and kept things pretty low key as the morning rolled on. Lunch helped a little, and then the two little boys went to bed and Laela asked for a show on.
Brady headed back to work and my mom and I continued our visit. I made a couple of phone calls that kind of set me off into a flurry of annoyance, and it was hard for me to come back from them :/ But, I tried, and I was feeling a bit better when I went to pick Dekker up from school. He, however, wasn’t feeling 100% either.
The poor kid lost his voice! I’m not sure I’ve ever heard his lost voice voice, but it is SO cute and high and raspy and I love it. But even that, I’m not sure what to make of. He has a gross, wet cough that I’m pretty sure indicates that all of the crud building up in there is finally coming out. I don’t think he’s really “sick” anymore. But I feel like he’s going to be kind of miserable having no voice at school! Yet, tomorrow is Halloween, and he’s so psyched to dress up and watch the Charlie Brown pumpkin movie, and do all the fun things! Ugh. Decisions are hard.
I’m chilly and ready for bed. But first, a bath. As always. Seriously, any of you that don’t have a soak every single day, you really should. It feels amazing.
