Hello everyone! I meant to back on here sooner but things have been hectic. And I mean "buggy" hectic. Ah, the joys of having kids.... last Wednesday we got a call from a friend whom my daughter plays with and they said that their daughter got the dreaded words "HL", and my daughter has been playing with her. Ugghh, well, we dodged this for 15 yrs and at some point in time it was sure to hit us. Here I am frantically checking all of my kids hairs ( yes, all 5 of them) and low and behold, yeppers we got them, yuck!!I'm running out that door to the nearest pharmacy and cleared out their shelves on that special shampoo and in between each child's treatment I was throwing in a load of laundry of bedding and clothes. My poor washer must have done about 10 loads that day cause my kids all like to sleep with a ton of blankets, even in this hot weather. Than my hubby comes home and I check his hair and he checks mine...another ugghh...we had to shampoo our hair too :( These stinkers won't go away too and school hasn't even started! So tonight, I did a second treatment and 2 haircuts and the other day after reading on the web that using castor oils helps, I tried that and it really helped get those bugs out of the hair. I am so hoping that we are done with all this now. My teenage daughter has been freaking and has been staying up in her room cause she didn't get any and doesn't want them, lol. Oh well, that's life and it's bound to happen but oh what a pain in the butt it is, lol.
Anyhow on the weekend, I did go shopping to and got some prim goodies from a local shop and I went back to the one antique shop and she immediately told me she just got a crock in and that she knew I loved crocks so I bought it and for only $10, and I also got a wooden antique box that I'm hoping to put a fall display in it on my table. While we were out we got some small cucumbers and fresh Ontario apples ~nothing tastes better than our local produce!! I'm hoping to make some pickles in the morning if nothing else happens, lol.
It's been really hot and humid again here, temps in the 40's with the humidity and it makes you feel like doing nothing.I hope a slightly cooler weather is on the way, not too cool, but cooler than what we have been getting. On a good note, school starts in 6 days, whoohoo!! I love my kids, but it's time!! And this year, my youngest son Kaedyn starts JK so he will go Mondays, Wednesdays and every other Friday, all day, so I will finally get some "me time" and enjoy whatever it is that I do... hopefully my crafts :)
Anyhow, that's about it, hope everyone is having a great week :)

Blessings, Trish
