Looking up. . .




















All is well here in our house. . .overall. No more vomiting for the most part. M' threw up last night but I think it was a fluke. She hasn't been acting sick, just had the one vomit. Today everyone had a good day. We attempted Costco again, which turned out successful. . .successful is exciting. I'm not sure if I'm braver, more strategic or if the kids have just gotten better, but a few months ago I would have done anything to not have to take them to a grocery store. As of right now, its not too bad. O' also wore real underwear to the fruit stand, Costco and McDonalds. No accident or anything. He did get busy playing when we got home and had an accident, but for 3 hours out he was good. I happened to be motivated during nap time. I attempted to clean up so the house wouldn't be a disaster for the weekend. I got out the vacuum just to find out it no longer wanted to suck. I attempted to fix it and find a clog but nothing helped. Mike came home and we declared it dead. We researched some vacuums and the one I have been eyeing costs a fortune. . .yes. . .its a Dyson. So there was no way I was going to pay for a Dyson. . .but then I decided to Craiglist it and there was one. . .brand new and for half the price. Plus we won't have to pay tax or shipping costs. Pretty good! So tomorrow we are going to go and check it out. Its brand new and still in the box but I think we are going to try it out first just to make sure its not broken or anything. The guy said he bought it two months ago and hasn't ever used it. So if that works out it would be great. That's about all our news.

I'm so glad that Obie and Mattia are doing better. That's a great relief and a big answer to prayer. Glad to hear about your awesome Vacuum. We just need to use ours a little more often (-; We're waiting for one that will get itself out and vacuum. Until then...
Love you all, Wawa
