Happy Friday. We’re laying low as we have a sick toddler, again. I’ve lost track at this point but I think the poor girl has had more sick than healthy days since the beginning of September. Hoping it means she will have a strong immune system as so many of you have said. It’s going to be rainy so I think maybe we’ll get some of the Christmas decorations out and start early because, why not? I could use some holiday cheer right about now. Wishing all of you a good weekend.
