1- A few days ago I fell walking down our stairs--missed the last step--and landed on my elbow. It is very bruised and sore and I feel a) old and b) vulnerable. When little kids fall, they pop back up and run around some more. Me? Not so much.
2- We got an email from Braeden's mission president outlining evacuation plans for the impending hurricane. Now it looks like the hurricane is going to miss them but there will still be a lot of rain and the possibility for flooding. If I know Braeden, he is thrilled.
3- Marianne directed me to come up with a craft for Thanksgiving (like the bracelets last year). She's my older sister so she is the boss of me and I am taking this responsibility very seriously. I am trying to come up with something that is not too expensive or difficult or cheesy and I called Marianne to report my progress. She thinks I'm better at crafts than I am.
4- Emma is gone on a school trip so we are getting a taste of Life With Mark. I have a feeling a lot of time will be taken with me stopping Adam and Mark from breaking
things. Those two throw things. Recently, Adam would throw a
football in the direction Mark was going to leap. Coincidentally it was
in the direction of a lot of breakables.
