Monday October 31

Well, happy Halloween. 
Definitely looked different this year. 
No trick or treating!
Today I reported a bunch of my plants that were definitely overgrowing their pots!
Then I went to go shopping. 
I went to Lowe’s first.
It was a whole thing 😞
Tried to use the LAR….. they couldn’t figure it out. 
So I said I could just use my card. 
Well…. My card was not in my wallet!!!!
Dad still had it from the BSU game. 
So we try the LAR again….no go. 
That’s okay…I found a check. 
With the check out.
It fed through the machine the first time, but then went so it when they needed it a second time. 
I was DONE!!!!
Not mad at them. 
Really, it was just the culmination of this last month…. This last year. 
I told them not to worry about it, I didn’t need the stuff. 
And I held back tears and left the store and held it together until I reached my car. 
Then I could not stop crying. 
I let myself cry for a bit, settled down enough to drive home. 
Then sat in the quiet and let myself cry and feel all the feelings. 
Again, it has nothing to do with Lowes. 
I guess I was just past due in a good cry. 🤷🏼‍♀️
After school, I helped cass and Lucas with their costumes. 
Port helped me make mummies for dinner. 
Dad is doing his helicopter class this week, but he was able to make it home for dinner and to make some homemade root beer. 
Then we watched Charlie Brown, the great pumpkin movie.

It was a fun filled Saturday….after chores anyway. 
Lots and lots of laundry got done. 
Why do we have so many clothes!!!!!
Dad and port went and got since wire to get started on ports bunny cage. 
His bunny is named Einstein, Stein for short. 
Elsie got to hang out with Annie again. 
I’ll have to get pictures from her to add!
We had a quick little visit from the young’s. 
The boys got hair cuts. 
Then we took the Leavitt’s with us to the BSU game. 
Cassi and Lucas joined us too. 
The weather was actually quite nice!!!!
It was a really fun time. 
Tonight was Winnie, Madi and Logan’s ward trunk or treat.

Thursday October 27

After dropping the kids off at school, I headed downtown for my MRIs. 
It was a LONG time…..two hours, laying down, not moving 😬
It was rough. 
Hopefully it will help with some answers. 
It’s a weird feeling to WANT someone to find something wrong with you so that you can prove it’s not all in your head and that you can finally do something about it. 
The rest of the day was spent cleaning up yesterday’s tornado. 
Annie came in town last night and planned a surprise visit to elsie after school!!!
It was so fun!
She was so excited!
They hung out and played games and hopefully they can hang out again on Saturday before she heads back to Utah.

Wednesday October 26

We had a lot of fun this evening at the ward trunk or treat. 
Elsie has been very badly wanting to go as the Sanderson sisters the minute she watched hocus pocus. 
So we made that dream come true ❤️
We won best family costume award and Elsie was SO EXCITED!!!!
And I’m exhausted because I have been doing not much else the last couple days except get stuff ready for the trunk or treat 😂
