Ahh the Thanksgiving holiday. Family, shopping, and excitement. Sometimes.
Tues Nov 22nd
I had an appointment at my doctor. Diagnosis: A polyp on the wall of my uterus. Fun! Surgery was originally scheduled for the same day but due to scheduling conflicts at the doctor, surgery has been rescheduled to January 10th. Please schedule a little prayer for me on this day. I will be put under for the surgery and I am not looking forward to it.
Wed Nov 23rd
Since I was supposed to have surgery on Tuesday, we were going to stay home for Thanksgiving, but since surgery was rescheduled, we packed up and headed to my husband’s family in upstate New York. What was supposed to be a 6 hour trip took more like 9 hours with traffic.

Happy Thanksgiving! Today we enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving meal at two different times in two different places. There’s nothing like being overloaded with carbs.. twice. And then at 10pm, shopping time at Walmart. That’s right. We braved the 10pm opening at Walmart. It was INSANE. But I got everything I needed. After Walmart, we went back to my husband’s uncle’s house and finished our shopping online. Overall a pretty productive shopping experience, but I didn’t get a Leappad for my youngest so that will have to wait for his birthday in February.

I was waken up by the sound of my 3 year old screaming. Apparently he was standing on the couch, fell off, and smacked his head on the coffee table. He had about a 1/4″ hole in his scalp and the bleeding would not stop. After about 10 minutes of constant pressure on the wound, it let up. Since the bleeding stopped, we headed to the ER which was about 40 minutes away. On the way there, he would not stay awake and I was freaking out, so my husband sped up. And then he got pulled over. Luckily I was hysterical enough that the police officer let us go without asking any questions at all. End result: Two staples in his head. They didn’t even numb it first either. I feel so bad for my little man.

It’s the end of our journey. We’re heading home in about an hour (as soon as our laundry is dry). I’m looking forward to getting back to the daily routine. We probably won’t be home until late tonight but it has been an eventful trip, for sure!
I hope all of you had a nice Thanksgiving!
