Week 47

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  Tyler flies home today--TODAY!! I can't wait to see him and have him here for at least a few days.  We're enjoying being on Thanksgiving break and just hanging out at home. We have no big plans except to spend some good quality time with each other and to stay dry and warm.  It most certainly feels like late fall here which will be a shock to my LA sunshine boy's system ;0)

Now for last week's pictures:

Day 319- Monday, 11/14/16
Crushed it!  His migraine that is.  He was in a bad way as soon as he got home from school and took some meds but still wasn't feeling well.  Then I had remembered reading something about taking caffeine in addition to help and just so happened to have a small can of Coke on hand.  He gave it a try and it worked.  That smile did not exist 10 minutes ago and there was no way he'd be doing his homework otherwise. It may just be a fluke this time, but we'll try again when needed to see.

Day 320- Tuesday, 11/15/16
Now for my caffeine--served today in a festive red cup.  They have so many cool designs this holiday season and it's great to see the change from last year's fail. 

Day 321- Wednesday, 11/16/16
I'm getting creative with leftovers by sizzling up some fajitas tonight while sipping on a margarita.  We haven't made fajitas in years because we usually don't have leftover steak but with Tyler gone leftovers are now plentiful again ;0)

Day 322- Thursday, 11/17/16
Last week they started charging for bags, and I still for the life of me can't remember to take the bags I have in my car into the store.  One of these days, soon I hope, it will become a habit. At least the bags they make us pay for are so much nicer than the ones we got for free, and I  now have a good collection of them to reuse providing I remember. 

Day 323- Friday, 11/18/16
Yesterday was super windy in the late afternoon so now all the colorful fall leaves are no longer on the tress but instead covering the ground.  I do like the crunch they make as we take our daily walk and they are still just as pretty. 

Day 324- Saturday, 11/19/16
Justin's been waiting for this new game release and ordered it online not expecting it until Sunday, but it actually came today so he's a super happy camper especially since he's now officially on fall break and can spend more time playing than doing school work.

Day 325- Sunday, 11/20/16
It's been raining the past couple days so it's pretty wet out with a lot of puddles around.  Bella and I found a nice dry break in the storm for her walk and enjoyed the fresh clean air.  For Sunday dinner Justin was thrilled to discover we were having orange chicken and rice--his new favorite meal.  It's spicy warm which is perfect on a cold wet day.

That's it for now.  I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving week and gets to enjoy some good family time.  See you all next week.
