Colin is better

He has a cold & left school sick Friday. His school called my sister Karen, she emailed me. I can't figure out why they never have G or my cell phone number. Our numbers haven't changed in 6 yrs. I think it's because my niece Karen's daughter goes to the same school. I'm sure they ask my niece for her mom's number. Colin has our home number memorized. I need to teach him my cell number.
G picked Colin up from school he said he wanted his Aunt Karen. He took him to my mom's & she kept a close eye on him. They were home when I got home. Colin's asthma gave him issues thought the night which meant I didn't sleep by watched him breath. I hate when he gets a cold it always causes issues w/ his asthma. He was better Saturday.

I DVR the Oprah & Dr Phil show. I found it very interesting the things women do for beauty all over the world. Brazil is the diet pill capital of the world; they are second to the US in plastic surgery. You can be poor & put your plastic surgery on a payment plan. Women cover most of their body & hair in Iran, so most get nose jobs. It is a status symbol to wear the bandage. Japaneses women bleach & whiten their skin & straighten their hair. Most of the hair for hair weaves come from the women in India that sacrifice their hair to a God that loves hair. They get pennies & some hair weaves cost $4000.
Mauritania West Africa plump women are more desirable. They force feed young girls to fatten them up. The men are drawn to the larger women.

Yesterday was 78 degrees today it's 54. I wished I would have cleaned out my flower bed.
I made space for the guys Christmas tree in the family room. We may bring down the decorations this weekend. I'm not going to put the girl tree up this year, unless by some miracle, I finish my craftroom.

We have 2 birthday parties this weekend & one next weekend. Colin is ready for his birthday.
He keeps asking when is November going to be over.

He got a prize from his teacher yesterday for doing so well on the craft project. I'm sure the teacher didn't know he's been making crafts w/ me his mommy since he was 3 yrs old.

G really wants to get Colin the Wii for Christmas. I want to wait until next year. On most things I get my way, when it comes to Christmas gifts for Colin; G gets his way. No, G usually just goes & buys what he wants him to have w/out me.

G had a good day with his feet. We will take progress, it doesn't matter how small.

I haven't blogged about G in a few days. It seemed like every time I wrote he was doing better he would have a bad day. He has done really well this week. I hope we have a great weekend.
His hands are much better & his feet are improving.

Colin wants a Wii for Christmas. I told him w/ couldn't afford to get him a wii this year. He sd they are only $300.00. I told him 300.00 was a lot of money & to write down 300 tick marks.
He sd he would ask Auntie Karen to buy him a wii. Karen sd I should buy him a wii in front of Colin. I sd you do that, ask Auntie Karen.
I think he's pretty sure we will not buy him a wii this year. Yesterday he was playing around the house, he was practicing his karate moves. G asked him what was he doing he sd, he was practicing for a karate contest. The prize is $300.00 & I can buy my wii. I sd "How will they know you are in the contest?" He sd they are smart, they are mens.

pool fun

We had a fun morning at the pool. Colin & I played pool basketball. I got to shoot a few times. According to Colin it was always his turn to shoot. The heated pool wasn't 80* Thank goodness the weather was warm & sunny.

Hilton Head Island

I love Hilton Head Island. The Island is different this year. There seems to be less activity. We usually are offered money by condo places to listen to a presentation. In the past we've gotten free breakfast & golf. We do get free golf w/ our stay. We don't golf & this is one of the best

places in the states for golf. We will spend tomorrow in Savannah. Thursday we will spend at the beach it will be mid 70*'s.

I'm glad we voted early absentee. History will be made today we will have either the first AA president or the first female VP.

I got the cutest photos of the baby.
