Small update

1.  When do kids start having imaginary friends?  Matthew informed me while we were in a tool store that his friend Jack was following us around the store.  I thought he was telling me about my friend Jane’s son whom he played with a couple of weekends ago.  But, no, Jack rode in the car home with us, ran into CVS while I got Emma’s medication, and he played with Matthew yesterday afternoon before Jon got home from work.

2.  Jon’s effectively been laid off.  He works until May 1.  Anyone know of any Electrical Engineering jobs???

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to my wonderful husband!!  He turns 31 today.  While I was sorry it was so uneventful, he was happy to just spend it with his family.  He did tease me a bit about the delicious meal I made him for dinner, which consisted of leftovers from Matthew’s dinner over the weekend from Steak-and-Ale and a salad.  I suggested we go to Fuddruckers over the weekend, something I doubt he’ll turn down.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween was an eventful weekend day for us. Matthew had a blast. He spent a couple of hours next door at Amy’s while I went to the dojo. After a nice, quiet nap, he got up and played for a bit while we waited for Daddy to come home. And then it was time to get dressed. Our ninja turtle was a happy little guy when he got to put his costume on. Daddy took him out for about 40 minutes and he came back with a bucket full of candy. Emma stayed home with me to pass out candy. Aren’t they cute? More pictures can be found at our photo gallery.

TMNT jack-o-lantern

Matthew’s costume is mostly handmade. The sweatsuit and tank top were purchased. The tank top was dyed to be his turtle belly. Sword and mask were also purchased. When I get a better shot, I will post the shell. It’s the first time I’ve sewn something like that. It isn’t half-bad, if I do say so.

Update on Emma

For those of you who know what’s going on, I thought I’d let everyone know that Emma is doing well.  She was discharged from the hospital today.  I created another blog to help keep track of what’s going on with her…what she’s doing, her diagnosis, development, and anything related to her illness.  You can find it at

For those of you who don’t know what’s going on, I’ll be posting the Emma’s story so far in the next couple of days.
