November 26, 2012
The past few weeks have featured Don and the kids all taking turns being incredibly ill with whatever annual flu is going around. It included a fever for the boys (one that Dexter got TWICE) and incredibly obnoxious coughing all around. I got the cough, but no other symptoms other than intense fatigue from the many consecutive nights of over-and-beyond night shift (as opposed to normal 6 month-old night shift).
That said, life goes on!
Edmonton continues to be dark and cold.
I biked down to the train in heels on a Friday night, to enjoy drinks and dinner with friends downtown, without having to find parking.
I have been nursing my sweet little babies back to health.
Amidst the increased household duties with my sick family (hello, barf laundry), I still had time to comb the newly opened Simons (drool) and boss Don into some sweet new things. I am happy to report that some Simons dress shirts come in a slimmer cut, and with extra long sleeves! They also have a relationship with Harris Tweed and therefore, are carrying some majorly fly items for my Scottish man. Apparently Don's ancestors come from the isle of... Harris? Way back when.
Sorry ladies, I only found menswear in the glorious tweed.
Here is my teething baby.
And Don managed to take a picture of me when I was coming back in from errands the other week. Our 15-85 lens fell and cracked in August, and he was happy to show me that McBain was able to repair it! I am really impressed, it's as good as new.
Notice how when I come in the door from errands, I am eating a Twizzler. That's how I roll.
Things have been icy and constantly below freezing. I have been making good use of my wide variety of boots, scarves, gloves, and mitts. Hope you're all staying healthy and warm out there! It's only November and we've got a long way to go. So far, other than dealing with my sick family, my emotional wellbeing remains intact. Onwards toward the holiday season!
