Haha, I was excited to talk about pumpkin patches when I read the title on this post! What are your pumpkin plans, everyone?
I bought two little pumpkins at Wal-Mart on Friday. One of my friends is a private photographer, and she's going to do a photo shoot with Jenny for her ads (which means FREE for me!!). So, I went out and bought some pumpkins and a pumpkin shirt for Jenny to wear .
We are planning to go to the pumpkin patch with some friends in the middle of the month... and I'm hoping to go to one on the east coast when we're back there visiting in a few weeks .
We're totally missing out on the pumpkin patch this year. Nothing even close on the island. We are going to carve pumpkins though, with pumpkins purchased from Safeway, which is nearly as fun as picking yourself, but what can you do right?
I would like to vent here for a minute though.
I babysit two kids, my son's best friend Iver and his little sister Aislyn. Originally, agreed to babysit 4 hours on Saturday and Sunday for two weeks a month. I currently babysit for 8+ hours a day, five days a week. I am TIRED of it. It's not that I don't love the kids, I do. They are good kids. And it's not that I don't love their parents, I do. They are our best friends here. But if I wanted four kids, all day everyday, I would have had two more children of my own. It's complicated and stressful, and I'm just sick of it. DH and I aren't struggling for money, I basically agreed to it in the first place to help my friend out, when she decided to take a second job. But she quit that second job and instead just took on more hours at her current job.
Oh dear Lenae.. that doesn't sound like a fun - OR easy situation to be in... but you DID only agree to the 8 hours a week - and you're doing 40 now? that's not really fair on you, especially if it is starting to feel more like a chore, than something you're doing to help out your friend. I don't know what I'd do in that situation - I HATE upsetting people, but perhaps you need to talk to your friend & explain that it's getting a bit much now.... tell her you're happy with the 8 hours a week (if you are), but that you'd prefer her to find someone else for the rest of the hours...
it's so tough when a friend is involved!!!!!
Gaby stayed at her school visit by herself y/day - was weird being free to go out and do what I wanted
Yeah, it's weird when Colton is in school, too. But he only goes 2 1/2 hours twice a week, so I actually am not without him much. And it's sort of good for me, because I don't know if I'm ready to have him gone more than that, lol.
We are going to a pioneer homestead close to the house this weekend and then probably next weekend to a pumpkin patch. We are planning to spend Halloween with some friends who have a daughter who is about 6 months older than MB. The girls are both going to be dressed up in tutu's!
Chy has a tutu for Halloween too! She's going to be a fairy ballerina. She is in a stage right now where she loves ballerinas. It's funny because calls them 'reeene' like the end of balle'rina'. Our best friends here on the island don't celebrate Halloween for religious reasons, so we don't have any friends to pair up with, but oh well. We'll still try to make it fun.
