Project 365 {week 43}

I didn’t go to the ER this…WIN!

I did have horrible pain again on Friday.

You win some, you lose some, I guess.

But I would say this week was mostly a win.

October 21: We bust out the nubby and introduce Charlie to melon. Apparently once you go melon, you don’t go back.

October 22: Charlie wears different clothes home from daycare than what he wore to daycare. This is quite typical, actually.

October 23: new car seat for Eddie! Woot!

October 24: A little outside play before the weather turns brrrrr!

October 25: Turkey with the leaves he picked up yesterday (also? no pants because he decided he was done with diapers. YAY!)

October 26: My kidney tries to cripple me again, but I push through my day AND still do errands.

October 27a: Pumpkin patch day. Eddie didn’t want to be in a picture and Charlie seems mad about it.

October 27b: Pumpkin Patch Day. Eddie wants his own picture, by himself. Also? Home Slice is VERY pokey and slow about picking his pumpkin.

Like I said, the week was so full of win, it was hard to dwell on my Evil Kidney.

Which is what I call it now. Evil Kidney.

It’s screwed with me four times now.


Weekly this whole month.

Stupid Evil Kidney.

But awesome family stuff.  aw yeah. Take that, Evil Kidney.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Can Charlie get any cuter? Like, week by week?
    Answer: yes.
    Can Eddie get any more awesome?
    Answer: yes.

    Pumpkin picking is serious business, yo.

    And evil kidneys are evil. Bah.

    • KT: I’ve been reading for a while now about your kidney woes. I’m so sorry! I’m happy about the new SITs gig for Costco and I love that E is out of diapers! And I love that you guys got to the pumpkin patch. Good job, momma!

      I hope you are drinking lots of water.

      No more evil kidneys!

  2. I just assumed no-pants-Friday came around a little early.

  3. Hope Evil Kidney will go away and eave you alone. Charlie is such a cutie and so funny how Eddie wants his own picture. And yay, for no more diapers!!! 🙂
