I feel like I have lost the past two months to illness, and I can't get them back. I can't believe it is the middle of October. I am doing a lot better. I still have a little nonproductive cough, but at least I don't sound like a 3 pk a day smoker, (which is what I sounded like with pneumonia). I've lost 10 lbs, which for me isn't a good thing. I'm desperately looking for belts I've packed away, and I dread having to buy new pants. I hate shopping for clothes. Paper, no problem. Clothes, shoes, etc, not so much. J is doing much better too. He is still on antibiotics. He is on chewable Augmentin, after an extreme protest of liquid Cefzil. He always took liquid Motrin and Tylenol fine, who knew?

We have been cleaning out the closets in preparation for our move. We gave a lot of clothes and toys to charity. I think I've finally completed the last of the paperwork for our house yesterday (I hope). Changing lenders has been a nightmare, there's no other way to put it. There is big money in real estate and people's feelings get hurt when you change lenders and take away their commission. But I saved thousands by going with Wells Fargo, and I'm the one who had to fill out mountains of paperwork, so I'm not sorry. As they say, it's business. If you want friends get a dog. :)
I've been busy scrapping with the Cocoa Daisy Nov kit. You know, you just can't ever judge or pre-judge a kit by it's cover. I was worried when I saw the color palate, but I've made some layouts (and a project) that I really love. So, you just never can tell. Sometimes a change of color is just what I need to snap me out of a rut I guess. My American crafts Halloween project will be up 10/28 I think on their blog. I'm working on lots, but not much to share at the moment. I love this age, everyday J gives me ample scrap material. I just can't seem to scrap fast enough I guess.
I recognize I've been a lousy blogger these past two months, but something has to give when you are that sick. I'm hopeful that it will get better, especially now that things seem to be rolling along with the house. Happy Tuesday to you! Until tomorrow. I'll post my Cocoa daisy sneaks then.

Oh my gosh when I looked at the photo I was amazed at how TALL J is getting..all of a sudden he looks like a little boy, not a toddler. It does happen right before our eyes. Enjoy these last few days of autumn.

Glad you are feeling better! SO with you on the clothes shopping thing. Despise it. Good luck on the move. Definitely not one of my favorite things.
