Weekend Highlights

Friday afternoon dermatology appt was interesting. He had me change out my shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, sunscreen to some super hypoallergenic stuff that you can't just pick up at the local store. My laundry detergent was on the approved list, but I had to remove the oxyclean. It's only been a few days and my skin is noticably better. Yay! Once the dry rashy itchy stuff is all cleared up, we'll try to figure out which of these products is/are the culprit.

Son's marching band performance was awesome Friday night, and was even better at the competition Saturday afternoon. It brought tears to my eyes. We had to leave before awards due to our hectic schedule for the day. What a bummer because they took first place in their division. Woot! Moving onto another competition next weekend.

Dropped off Daughter at her friends house so they could get all dolled up for Homecoming dance at friend's school. She must be studying in the school of Marcy bathroom shots, because this is the photo she sent to me when they were all ready to go. She's the one in the middle.

Son had rushed from Band competition back to school to prepare for the first show of the comedy troupe and that is where we went next. Parts of the show were quite funny, some parts I didn't "get" (guess it's a sign of my age). One of the sketches that they performed was written by him. He seemed to really enjoy it and was comforable on stage. Next performance is in January.

Our church is leaving the rented space and going portable for the foreseeable future. We'll be meeting in an elementary school. This means unloading before the service and reloading after the service into a large trailer. It's going to be "interesting." We had a practice portable service today and it seemed to go pretty well.

Admittedly, taking a nap wasn't on my schedule, but I was exhausted this afternoon and did just that. It was probably a good thing, because things are slowing down for me anytime soon...

  1. Sounds like a crazy busy weekend, but fun for all. I can't even imagine life with teens as I'm still dealing with the elementary and preschool (and I'm not much younger than you, just got a slow start LOL).

  14. Oh, I forgot, good thing you are narrowing down the skin irritants. That can be frustrating! My hands itch sometimes to distraction but there is no rash or anything, so its hard to know what causes it.

  15. Sooo busy!!! I love that your daughter has a modest dress! ;>) She is a cutie! We went to a portable church for about two years. It can be exhausting...that is for sure. We rotated set up and tear down by SS Class so it wasn't too bad. I hope it works out for you!

    P.S. Your daughter looks beautiful.

  18. Cute pic! Didn't know you were having skin problems -- glad that is getting resolved. My skin is really dry lately, driving me nuts.

    Glad you took a NAP too. Sometimes you just need to . . . . :-)
