Pat in OH- Thanks for the compliments on the boys and the ship! Let your DD know that this year's egg carton spaceship was made of 380 egg cartons all hot glued together.Mary- Good to see you!Allie- Ugh! I don't know how you do it. I would def be mentally strangling Jean, right now.Green houses- Anyone know where I can buy a green thumb? I would love to be able to grow things. My home is where plants come to die.Shepherd's/Cottage Pies- I have never been a big fan of these. I do make chicken pot pies for Tim, sometimes. I make mine with less gravy than the store bought ones. Always chicken, potatoes, carrots, onion, and a bit of cheese.
For anyone interested: Last year's spaceship lasted three weeks; at which time I took it apart in sections and gave it to another childcare provider whose kids played with it for three or four weeks THEN it went onto another provider. This year's spaceship lasted a total of a day and a half! Three of my kiddos dismantled it (while pretending to "repair" it). They asked me to fix it, as soon as a large, 20 carton section came off. Nope. Eight hours assembling a spaceship was enough time for me. So...at the end of day two (Thursday night), I took the ship down and cleaned up. The difference in how kids play is amazing. (Last year, I had four kids ages four and five to lead the play; this year the oldest is 3).
Getting shopping, cooking, and some outdoor/fall clean up done this weekend. ttfn xoxoxo KJ (Kelly)

Happy Birthday, Johnny!Kelly. If you want a faux green thumb like mine, you buy/start/accept way too many plants and then quickly dispose of all the plants that die so there is no evidence.
I have happy financial news! I am going to pay off the rest of our mortgage on Wednesday! I can hardly believe it.
Of course, my parents never even had a mortgage, they saved their money until they had enough to buy the house of their dreams,and then bought it from the original owner with cash. Five years later they had saved enough to remodel it. I lived in that house with my family until I was 18.
Here is my greenhouse, stuffed full because last night was cold; this weekend I hope to empty the greenhouse, secure the frame to the deck for wind protection, put down some pavers as a “floor”, and move the elephant ears to the garage where they will go dormant, then rearrange the rest of the plants back into the greenhouse. I have to work several hours at my telemedicine job, so not sure I’ll have time, but I’m going to try.

Katla - I suggested that he log his food. I don’t think it’s lactose though as he drinks milk every single night before going to bed and he eats cheese regularly. It seems to be after a big meal.
The first episode was after our daughters wedding, his Mother had been here and cooked a lot of richer foods than I do. Plus he drank at the wedding which he very rarely does. I’m trying to remember the time before this, I remember it but not the exact time. This time was after our Thanksgiving dinner. Each time he claims he’s not constipated, just very bloated and feels like trapped gas. Magnesium Citrate has been the only thing that helps each time though.
I went out and bought new furnace filters, humidifier filter and light bulbs for the new lights that should be delivered very soon.
I also found some smart plugs on sale so bought them to go with the Google Home nest I won a month ago.
So far it’s just been a digital photo frame.
I need to do some cleaning but I find it difficult with him lying on the couch. 🤨
