We’ve had a busy week around here. You might remember that I had my grandkids over the weekend. Monday rolled around and I was back to childcare…or so I thought. My childcare kiddos were sick so the parents kept them home. Gannon and Georgia were still here on Monday but no extra kids.
Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday the kiddos were still sick so I sewed my days away all the while worrying about this guy.
Kayla’s boy Jasper landed himself back in the hospital. He was having breathing issues.
This picture makes it look like he didn’t mind the whole ordeal. That would be incorrect. He was pretty miserable there. Kayla happened to catch a happy picture.
On Friday we got this picture. He was being discharged. YAHOO!!
He stayed over three nights. Kayla is taking it well…Spencer too but Kayla is a teacher. This was finals week. It was not a good week to miss school but what’s a mom to do? Between Jasper getting tubes, his last hospital visit, and now this visit, she’s burned through all of her time off.
Being I was off from childcare I offered to go stay but she said if she went to work, she’d just be worried anyway. I totally understand but I wish there was more I could do.
Thursday was Georgia’s birthday. She’s TWO now. We all had a video call to sing her Happy Birthday on Thursday. She was crabby and wasn’t into it.
Kelli is having trouble sleeping already. UGH. I know typically those last few weeks are hard but Kelli is only at 29 weeks. It’s too soon for her to not be sleeping.
Buck’s kids ended up with colds when they got home from the weekend here. The kids are all feeling better but now Buck and Lora are both not feeling the best. Buck sounded terrible Thursday night.
Karl is finally pulling the last bits and pieces together to sign the final papers on his house. This week was a lot of finishing up estimates, checking into changing electric and internet…all of the fun stuff. We’re hoping next week will be time to sign closing paperwork. WHEW…
I got lots done while I was off especially being Kalissa’s family was on vacation in Wisconsin Dells. It’s easy for them to go being they’ve already had Covid.
Kalissa ended up coming home sick. She’s had a cold for the last few weeks but hasn’t been able to completely kick it. While they were gone, it really flared up again. They left Tuesday morning and came home Thursday afternoon. She had to work overnight Thursday night. I went on a walk with her and the boys Thursday afternoon. She was debating on calling in sick. I told her to go early and see if she could be seen at Urgent Care. She said no. She went to work.
Friday morning I called her as she was driving home and asked how she was. She said, “Terrible”.
I told her I was pretty sure she had a sinus infection and should go in. She started in on not being able to go and she’d go to Urgent Care over the weekend if she needed to. I said no she needed to call for an appointment. I would drive her to it. I worried about her driving. She didn’t get out of work until half an hour late, then the 70-minute drive home all while not feeling good, and then drive the opposite direction to the doctor once she got home, all on top of just working a 12-hour shift. I pushed her and she finally gave in to go to the doctor.
I ended up taking her…Guess what??
Mom was right. This girl has a sinus infection.
While she was in the doctor’s office I stopped at the thrift store…I have goodies to show you.
Check out these. Someone cross-stitched these and then gave them away to the thrift store!! I paid $1 for the bag. I am not in love with the way they were finished. I think it’s a little dated so my plan it is to finish them differently and use them in a dough bowl. Watch for more to come with these.
You all might remember that I’ve been contemplating getting an office chair for the sewing room. I ended up finding one at the thrift store. It was $8. I am very happy with it so far. I tried it out and it’s much better than my previous chair.
I’ve not tried a walker at childcare. For $4, I thought I’d try one with the baby here.
Happily, I found fabric!! There are two flannel pieces. I’ll send them to Jazz. She likes flannel for backing a baby quilt. The blue piece on the bottom right is a 4 1/2 yard chunk. It was only $4!! That will make a nice backing. The pieces on the left were one-yard cuts. 50 cents each. YAHOO!!
I found this Melissa and Doug brand toy. It’s magnetic “paper dolls”. It was $1.50. Perfect for the collection of toys here. You can find the same toy HERE on Amazon.
I got a new calculator for 50 cents. Mine had a key that sticks. I don’t love the calculator on my phone. I got the two decorations for 50 cents for the pair. I’ll likely put them in my dough bowl too.
It was a great day for me at the thrift store.
The end of the week is looking much better than the start of the week…Everyone is on the mend health-wise. I got a few things accomplished and I got some great thrift store find.
If you are someone who donates to thrift stores or Goodwill and charity shops, I sure thank you. Your donations make a lot of us thrifters out there really happy!!
That’s the latest update with the Kramer family.
