So far so good

Another day, another dollar, right?
No disasters to speak of. Yet.

My mom took over Gabriel duties at around noon yesterday so I could go back to work. She said that while he wasn't really eating, he was in a perky mood all day and wasn't a sad miserable sick boy. With Gabey under the expert care of my mother, I went to a coworker's retirement party last night. I had a lot of fun, but I would have had even more fun if it had been a Friday.
I was wearing a fabulous and flattering purple dress that I found on ridiculous $12 super sale from Macy's, but I suck at life and took no pictures.

Gabriel can't go to school today whether he's sick or not, so my plan was to spend the night at my parents' house last night. My brothers don't have school today, so what I actually ended up doing was kidnapping my brother James and taking him back to my apartment, where he's watching Gooberpants until I get off work at noon. My hope is that Gabers will be perky enough to enjoy his first trick-or-treating experience tonight.

AFTER the kiddie part of Halloween, my mom has agreed to watch the Love Dove, which means I have a free evening. My plans are at this point not very....existent? I'll keep ya posted.


  1. Just how many nicknames do you have for Gabriel?

    I could three just in this post.

  2. I’m glad Gabriel / Gabey / Gooberpants / Gabers / Love Dove is feeling better.

    I hope you both have a most excellent Halloween!

  3. Boy I really managed to pack the nicknames into this one didn't I?

  4. yay he'll be able to enjoy Halloween! that's such a big deal at their age.

  5. want to let me borrow your dress?
