Crazy. So far, it isn't having too much of an impact on me personally. We live in a town with a military base, though, and there have been lots of furloughs there.

I'm so glad it's Friday! I'm exhausted, my house is a mess, and I seriously need to get myself organized. Grace has not been feeling well the past couple of days...hoping she can rest it off over the weekend, and also that it doesn't spread to the rest of us.

I don't know what ripples are going to affect us north of the border. Hoping for nothing....

I feel horrible for WIC recipients, surely to god they can do something???

By some sort of Saturday miracle, I managed to stay in bed til 7, then later Anna took a nap while Grace quietly entertained herself. The rest of the day will probably be complete chaos lol.

Lazy Saturday around here, but that's fine by me. I have to clean my closet this weekend since one of my children woke me up last night to ask what happened to it. Apparently, while we were all at Jasmine's volleyball game, 2/3 of the shelving (also used to hang clothes) came crashing down.

My head is spinning these days. I have too much going on, for real. Tomorrow is Anna's 6 month well visit, and I'm taking the morning off work. Looking forward to sleeping in a bit!

I just got an email from our chancellor...a group of employees are being furloughed. It's a small group of researchers who also work at the VA. Hoping all of this can be resolved soon.

Oh that sucks! So far no impact on me and my family. And as far as I know wic still works. Everyone I know on it is still getting benefits anyway. Hope that that is true everywhere.

Unfortunately Grace has discovered the What Dose the Fox Say video and she thinks its hysterical. Wants to watch it all the time. Aaand now it's stuck in my head.

Oh, and Anna is sick. Most likely viral...cough, sneezing, runny nose, etc. We've pretty much done nothing but snuggle all day.

Hope she feels better soon! and LOL to what does the fox say. My oldest showed it to me a few weeks ago since one of his Jr high teachers showed it to the class. It quickly became my 2 year old favorite song, at first I thought it was too weird for me but eventually it grew on me. Sadly it's stuck in my head and now and then I'll sing it

Thanks! And yeah...I can't get it out of my head tonight because Grace asked to watch it again tonight. She's so cute when she tries to sing it lol.

I finally watched the Fox video this weekend- DH and I didn't get it.

I have been so freaking busy lately. Between tons going on at work and then a weekend trip to Boston for the circus for my son, then Halloween party last weekend... it's been insane. I am bellydancing at a restaurant this Saturday night, but otherwise there is nothing planned and I'm thrilled about it.

Watched it once. Don't get it either. Found it pretty dumb.

Oh yes, it's beyond ridiculous. Grace likes the animal costumes and the crazy sounds.

This week just will not end. I'm so ready for October/Halloween to be over.

So the nurses in one of our infusion centers always go all out for Halloween with themed costumes and decorations. Well, part of their decorations this year included a teepee, complete with "smoke" from a fog machine. Yeah. So they've already set off the fire alarm. Genius.
