Random Acts of Wonderful Thoughtfulness!

After the excitement of Halloween, everything else around here's been pretty low key. Working, cleaning, Mommy stuff, Family stuff. All's pretty good.

However, personally, I've been feeling just a little bit blah. I feel like my body is falling apart...headaches, and most the joints on the left side of my body (wrist, knee, ankle) are hurting. I know it's just my body telling me to reclaim my workouts (at least where the joint pain is concerned, the headaches are another issue), but I've been a bit down. Add that to the fact that I feel disconnected...circumstances all around preventing me from connecting with all my buddies.

To the rescue came a couple of friends...the first with a phone call and just a chance to talk...

Mother/Daughter pedicures were in order! I attempted a flower on my right toe...which turned out great, until a certain 2 year old said "Pretty flower Mama" while simultaneously touching it...while it was still wet. I repaired it as best I could, oh well. She was so excited, I didn't want to be irritated with her.

Poor Indy...he misses the days when it was warm enough that I would open the screen door for fresh air...he loves the smell of the outside!

My Mom's birthday was last Tuesday, but we all got together last night at Pei Wei in Bountiful for dinner...It's really hard to coordinate all our schedules, so we were just glad to be able to get together. Cole and I managed to find a sitter for our kids, and got a jump start on our Christmas shopping as well...

Thanks to all those who cheered me up this week!

Michele, I'm not going to be able to go this weekend :(...because of Halloween being on my weekend, I had to request it off...and I didn't feel like I could request 2 weekends in a row off...

Min, I don't like Chinese food. My mom and sister took me to Pei Wei the day that we bought my sister's wedding dress, and it was so good! Something about the fresh way they cook totally have to try it!
