Things have been pretty busy here in Taylor Town so I'm sorry I haven't blogged in a while. My cousin Doreen came to visit with her husband Orlando and my super adorable godson Corey. It was a fun but crazy week. It was great being with Corey for a week and it was so fun seeing his reaction to Disney and meeting the characters in person. It was hit or miss whether he liked the characters or not but overall I think he had a really good time. I of course took a ton of pictures, now I'll have to work on scrapbooking them! There was some craziness while my cousins were here all five of us got sick one day it was awful and I don't think any of us were ever 100% and poor Mikey is still fighting with this bug. Then our little girl cat Alyssa had to be rushed to the vet. She was acting so strange but we thought it was having a baby around the house and then she peed on me and I noticed she had a horrible smell to her. It turns out she had a really bad infection under her collar. We have no idea how she got it but we have to give her antibiotics and put this powder on her neck. Thankfully she seems to be bouncing back.
Also this week my grandmother had to have emergency surgery. My parents were in Vegas but thankfully Andrew was still home and able to get my grandmother to the hospital and naturally my parents cut their trip short. Grandma seems to be doing ok but she has a lot of adjustments to make. I will be heading to Ohio on Friday to help out for a week. Hopefully that's enough time to help out but then we'll be back out there at Christmas so it will have to do for now. I have been stressing out making the flight arrangements and now with the airlines so messed up there are no non-stop flights to Columbus anymore so I was trying to pick out the best stop over. Last night I drank half a bottle of wine and I'm pretty sure the other half will get polished off tonight!!
With everything going on this week I didn't get a chance to make as many new recipes as I wanted to but this morning I did make chocolate filled crescents for breakfast! The recipe is SUPER simple you just take Pillsbury crescents and you fill them with chocolate chips! I don't know why I never thought about doing it before but I found the idea in Real Simple magazine and since I won't be home next weekend we are celebrating Mikey's birthday this weekend so I gave him his present yesterday and I am trying to spoil him a bit this weekend. I will try to make at least one more new recipe this week before I head out and then maybe I'll try something new for my family in Ohio - we'll see how things go.
I imagine this will be another busy week getting ready for my trip, catching up from last week but I want to try to get some creating done this week, some writing maybe, some scrapbooking and I will do my best to blog again soon. I will have email access at my parents so feel free to write since you know I'll be checking in!!
