All the Small Things

Another week has begun.  Feeling optimistic about managing it, at this point...mainly because next week has that lovely long Thanksgiving weekend.  Yay!  Along with the extra day off last week, it seems manageable.

On Thursday, since I was off, I went out shopping with my mom and sister.  I don't care to shop, but we don't get to hang out much, so when they wanted to shop I said "sure".  I didn't actually make any purchases, but I did get some ideas for Xmas. 
Also on Thursday, Little Prince went in to have his ear tube things re-inserted.  It is a simple procedure, but I still feel bad for how confusing it must be for him to be put under.  Here are his before and after photos:

Before...happily playing in his little gown.

After...looking quite cross with dad.

At least now it is over, he is back to his own cheerful self, and hopefully, his hearing will continue to improve.

On Friday, I did very little.  Laundry, bill paying, groceries.  I know how to live it up on my days off!  It was, as I've mentioned, DR's birthday.  Being a sappy sentimentalist it felt like I missed him more that usual on this particular day.   

Saturday, work.  And it was sooo busy.  But time certainly flew.  When I got home I found that Handsome Lad had spent the afternoon watching his nieces and nephew.  Their parents did turn up to collect them eventually, and we all had dinner together.

Sunday, I went to my friend Milly's house for lunch.  Another friend of ours, KK, there too.  It was really nice to have some girl time.  Again, it felt like the day flew by.  Had a nice relaxing evening watching Dexter with Handsome Lad.

Brings us on back to Monday!  Hi!  See you tomorrow for Talk Talk Tuesday :-)

Sounds like a great weekend. I can't wait until you and DR are back together again. Do you have a time line in place for that?

Aw, poor Little Prince. He does not look happy in that second photo. I hope he's feeling better after the procedure. He looks like Harold from "Harold and the Purple Crayon" in that first photo! So cute!

Oh poor little darling! I'm glad he is back to his happy self.

Churlita: There is a time line, but I have a lot of doubts about how realistic it is. I'm trying not to count on it going as planned.

Tara: Thank you, he seems almost back to himself...a bit tired, I think.
haha! His little round head and the way Harold wears that little one piece outfit...I see it :-)

Ananda: Thanks, Ananda. He is generally a very good natured little fellow. It was hard to see him so down.

I envy kids for just showing right out there whatever it is they are feeling.

A friend's daughter had one of those. I hope he's ok...
Glad you had a great weekend...

Secret: When adults do it, it certainly does seems a lot more risky.

NoRegrets: I guess they are fairly common and clear up hearing issues that used to become permanent.
