I am assuming that one of these days I will learn the lesson of being content with an uneventful and boring life. In the meantime, this happened: my dad fell off his horse and ended up in ICU because of an oozing kidney related to the blood thinner he's taking as a result of the stroke he had 2 weeks ago. Oh, yes. That same dad who has never had so much as a cavity has now had 5-bypass surgery, a stroke, and now a fall from the horse resulting in an ICU hospital stay. All in a 6 month period of time. I told my friend last night that I am now experiencing being on the other end of hospital stays and medical scares, and I am fairly certain that I like being the sick person better than the family member waiting for news.
Kids Face timing with mom and dad Sunday night.
Prior to the whole falling off the horse thing, the big event from this weekend was a haircut for me. The kids, especially Rory, have really wanted me to have long hair again and at some point over the last couple of months, I decided it was the least I could do for them. Turns out, it *is* more than I can do. Life is too short for so many bad hair days.
Thanks to vscom photo filters for making me look much better than reality.
Hello, bangs. I've been resisting them for quite a while, but I think I like them.
The other major event was finally finishing Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets last week so that means it was movie time. Rory spent the night with Uncle Michael, Aunt Liz, and Addison so that Camden could watch the movie. Even though Rory has followed along with the book, the movie is much scarier. This boy could not have been more excited. He was literally quoting the book along with the movie, which is kind of amazing since we've read it once and also slightly annoying. :)
One other thing that happened this weekend: I managed to get sucked into a Korean drama. I haven't watched one for probably 2 years, but oh, heavens, are they addictive. Also incredibly soapy, cheesy, poorly acted, etc., but addictive. The glimpse into Korean culture is so interesting and the story appeals to the less mature side of me. It's Boys Over Flowers for my adoptive mama friends, and, yes, I do realize I'm the last person to actually watch this one.
You'll notice there's no mention of Labor Day. That's because we didn't really celebrate. Camden was sick with a cough and fever all weekend (and I'm trying to be a bit more compassionate after that whole summer pneumonia episode) so we spent it quietly at home while Brian worked away on school work.
