Stretchy Max, Photos, and French Toast

This morning, I woke with a plan. Okay, well not a plan, but a few ideas. One, I needed to find Max a new pad for his Cloud Nine Pillow. Two, I was hungry for French Toast. I washed my face, combed my hair, put on some shorts, and hit the road.

At JoAnn's I found a 3 inch pad, that was approximately 2.5 ft long, to fill in a smooshed spot in Max's foam pillow perch. I found what I needed for less than $15, took it home, and loaded it into the bag. I got Max out of bed, that kid, he would sleep 24/7 if I allowed it, and he actually stretched out on it. It was, as these small happy surprises are with Max, thrilling. Lately, he has taken to pulling himself into a protective semi-fetal position. To see him stretched out and looking up, it's progress. And for only $15. :D Okay, I didn't load these photos in the correct order, but I'm in a hurry, so I've got to roll with it. I want to learn how to catch the kids mid-run. Here's an attempt I made about a week ago. It's Alana running. The feet look cool, but no amount of messing with the photo could make the body look the way I wanted it to. As soon as the smoke...........
this is a photo with the smoke - can you see it in the background - clears..................
I am going to see if I can get the kids to try again. Right now, I don't want to encourage them to run when the air sucks. Sarah and I have been swimming and we poop out after 30 minutes. It's hard to breathe and really gives us a headache, but we've got to get outside a little bit. I'm trying to re-fit myself. Sometimes, in the evenings, it's clearer and Sarah will go hang out with the neighbor kids.

Speaking of neighborhood kids, 4 of them are moving today. Two families are combining, which is pretty cool. The rest, I know one family is moving in, not sure about the other family. I think it's been hard for people to get through today with the trucks and the trailers.

Lastly, I did make the French Toast. I started a new blog today - a cooking blog at I started it last Spring - only a couple of posts - but I'm moving it over here. I love food and cooking. Please take a look, if you have a chance. Only the one recipe so far, but I will be adding more regularly.

That's it. Happy Saturday to you!
