It has been 13 days since I have had a working washing machine!
OHMYLANDS, 13 days!
And what if I hadn't kept up with the laundry completely before.....that means I have 13+ days of clothes from 4 persons.
We are waiting on parts that have been ordered. Now, everyone say "hooray" for ten year warranty on the EXACT parts that are needed. "HOORAY, HOORAY" Finally, a warranty that actually warrants something I need :)
I wouldn't suggest real snuggly hugs to any of my Harris' boys....or even me :) Although we do TRY to shower regularly, we are officially OUT of clean clothes.
I love you, dear LG washer, but my love is wanning as I wait out for some new parts for you...Please return with a fury.
Smell ya later-

And somehow it is already nearing the end of October! Crazy how that happens...
We had a pretty good weekend! The Doc was on call Friday and today, but that still left us some of Saturday with him, which is always a good thing :)
We went to Wildwood Park and just walked around. It was beautiful and perfect. The weather was nice and the big kid had a blast being out in nature.
We also got to go over to Sydney's for dinner, and we all had a good time...and REALLY delicious burgers!

The big kid is still, most certainly, in every aspect, a RAT. I think that's the best word to describe him right now. He is into everything, super dramatic, and always testing his boundaries. PHEW, just thinking about the child makes me tired ;)

And the little guy is wonderful. Really starting to get around with his fully-funtional army crawl. He is less than 2 weeks away from being 1! Holy moly, has my life changed in the past year! But he's doing great right now, and I'm praying we stay out of the hospital through the winter months! Can I get an amen?!?!

Oh, me? You want me to talk about myself? Well, I really don't like to...but just for you, I will. I'm doing good. I'm still rejoicing over the end of summer. I have big lofty goals for myself- like getting on top of the laundry, cleaning the house up, organizing closets and such that keep me busy in thought...but not in deed.... However, I stay physically busy pulling things out of little guy's mouth, taking away toys that have become weapons to the big kid, responding to 50 thousand "UH OHH'S" a day, and attempting to feed one of the 3 males in the house every hour of every day...
Little guy's therapies keep us on a schedule, and I am so thankful for that. Otherwise, we'd probably never get dressed. It amazing how much more productive you are when someone is at your house every day of the week :) (honest sidenote: what I consider dressed is probably not exactly what the therapists would agree with but if the babie have on pants, and I have on a bra, I'm sticking by that that's DRESSED to me :)

Okay, my pictures from my phone aren't uploading...ridiculousness! Here's the lame ones I actually have on the computer...
ignore the bulging thigh.....
 melts my heart!!!

looking at pictures reminds me...I should start doing the big kid's hair...haha yikes :)

And now, I'm off to be mad my myself for finishing my book today b/c now I don't have a book to read in bed! NUDGE NUDGE...Yep, I hear that God. I take it back, I'm happy I finished that book, so I quit wasting time in my fictional world. Also, I hear you have a really great book out too... I'll read that tonight..

Pumpkin Patch

I think this series of pictures is the cutest thing!
When this guy is 16, and wanting to ask her out on a date... (Syd, when I say 16, I really mean 32...promise ;)
I'm going to have to remind him how long he's been chasing after her...
We sure had some fun at the pumpkin patch and I actually took pictures, but uploading the rest is taking forever. So I'll just leave you with those for now!

Hey Friends

Hello world wide web :) I finally bit the bullet and have taken down all my previous posts. Bummer, I know, you all loved spending your day reading my lame and old posts...but just so you know, they are now gone. I haven't updated in a while. I have been on the fence about what I can share and what I shouldn't share, I didn't want to go private, because I secretly like it when strangers happen upon my blog... Anyways, solution, is final (hopefully). Previous posts with names and important personal info are gone. And now, I can get back to blogging anytime I want about any info I want, just using nicknames or 'assigned names'. Perfection! Thanks P.S. Yes, I do realize this is the 3rd of 4th time I've tried to do this.... buuuutttt I'm thinking its going to stick this time :)
