Baby's first sushi...he liked the ginger, but the avocado made him gag!

Hmm...plugging along. So far November is a bad month for lips. Thea put an incisor into hers last week, and abraded the outside as well. She nearly split it inside to outside, which would have required stitches (on her birthday, no less).
Tonight Willem fell off a chair and bit his lip (also, held his breath and fainted, he's a fun one). His was a fast fix, nursing babies with mouth injuries are such easy first aid. Nursing puts pressure on cut lips to stop the bleeding and rinses everything with sterile, antibacterial breast milk. Never a dull moment around here!

I started a new job a month ago. I am doing admin work for a therapy company, which is a new adventure for me. Only 10 hours a week, from home. Lots of my lab management skills come into play...collecting and arranging data, researching supply pricing, using excel. I am currently trying to figure out a State Billing system that is not intuitive, but the setup will be the hardest part. Once I've managed to get the correct data into the correct fields I should be good to go. Invoicing is coming together as I learn what different abbreviations and services go with different clients.
It's good to be working again...there has been a budget crunch here the past few years (as there has been for many people), so an opportunity to do something about it has been good for my state of mind.

Looking back, all I'm going to have is snapshots of November (and they all sound the same...sickness abounds, Thanksgiving travels, etc. etc).
Today is Friday, culminating a crazy week that's not quite over. There's been costume sewing, breakfast with a friends, treats for Halloween parties, trick or treating, treats for Thea's birthday, and a car that wouldn't start. Nothing horrible, but a lot of go, go, go. Today is Thea's 5th birthday, and tomorrow we celebrate with grandparents. I'm hoping tonight can be a little more quiet and I can get myself centered.
I owe Ella a trip for froyo since she aced her spelling test last week (no small feat for someone with reading challenges) so maybe a little time with my oldest will be just what the doctor ordered.
