Did you know that pumpkin seeds are supposed to help you sleep? I read about them the other day, so I'm giving it a shot tonight. They apparently produce stupid looking grins in front of webcams, too. So, you know, pros and cons...
Only three more weeks until Thanksgiving! I completely forgot about last week's Thankful Thursday - I'll bet most of you didn't even notice (I sure didn't! haha). I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving, though! Getting to hang out with family all day, reflecting on all the things we're thankful for,
eating foods I'm not supposed to... It's gonna be awesome.
Today was amazing because I got to see both of my moms. First, my mom came over to use our oven to bake a pie that dad needed for work, so I got to help her out with the pie and I got a few mommy hugs out of it! It was wonderful to see her in the middle of the week. :) And I want to give special attention and thanks to Josh's mom - she is the best mother-in-law ever! She is so selfless and willing to help out however she can. Y'know when I said that we really needed to grocery shopping but I can't make my way around the store? Well, Momma Laurie loved on us greatly today by buying our groceries for the week. Isn't she wonderful? It really takes a load off my mind to know we have good food in this house to keep us nourished til I'm better :) thank you so much momma Laurie!
