Happy Halloween!

Alas, fair readers, we have not had much to report as of late. After Thom's surgery things have been a bit slow and I'll admit it, I've been more than a little preoccupied by thoughts of a baby. No, not yet, but maybe sometime soon.

Anyway, in lieu of any new progress we are instead sending out our Halloween wishes. We present our first carved pumpkins in our new house. We're having a big bash on Saturday night too! I'll post a few good pics afterward too. Happy haunting!

A night in the emergency room

Thom woke up in the middle of the night with abdominal pains, which turned into nausea, which turned into worse abdominal pains. I was in the middle of weatherstripping and rushed him to the emergency room. Ten hours later I am now home. After myriad tests they found he had appendicitis and took him in for surgery at 9:30 - by 10:15 he was out. Very easy and all went swimmingly. He has three little band-aids - that's it.

He's spending the night in the hospital and I'm home to feed the cat and get a few hours of sleep before I re-join him in the morning (did I mention another nice thing about our house is that it's 3 blocks away from the hospital?). Send him your healing thoughts, friends. He feels so much better already!

And, bonus: the surgeon took some really cool photos of the appendix - pre- and post - maybe I'll post them :)

Autumn Day in Maine

While we did make some very un-sexy house purchases today (extra insulation for the attic and weather stripping) we spent the majority of the day out playing in our lovely state. A great deal of the day was spent finding our way through a corn maze, finding some pumpkins, and picking some apples. Although a chilly day it was a fun one. Here are a few photos of our day at Treworgy Orchards in Levant, Maine.
An aerial view of the corn maze - pretty cool, eh?

The chosen pumpkins

Thom blaming me for getting lost in the maze
