Mumsie and painting and sewing projects

Boy am I glad we got out the last couple of days and explored nature because the weather forecast is all ☔️💦💦💦💦💦❄️😳
Hola, blog. Things around here are better, health-wise.

Is this the most beautiful staircase or what? In San Fran, of course. 🌈 (thanks @streetartmagic)
I reeeeaaaally need to go to this gorgeous staircase in San Francisco some day.

Happy Dia de los Muertos! My lil' sugar skull painting with easel is still available in my Etsy shop! Only 30 bones. 💚💀✨✨
I’m currently taking the OAB medication prescribed by the urologist, which has helped about 80%. I don’t want to be on it forever, though…it causes dementia. And I certainly don’t need any help in that direction!

💀✨✨
I’m also taking a small dose of a medication called amitriptyline at night. It was formerly used to treat depression but also works in small doses for nerve pain, and it makes you very sleepy. Much like my beloved Trazodone that I’ve taken for years.

🍁
So over the past 3 weeks of nonsense I’ve gone from being a breastfeeding mama only taking 50 mg of Trazodone at night, to a pumping (barely) mama who takes three different meds. BOOOOO.


Next month I have an appointment at the UW with a doctor who specializes in problems like mine. It’s certainly better, but not 100%. Yesterday was kind of a bad day, but I did get my eyelashes done in the morning and then Mumsie and I got our hair cut last night so it wasn’t the WORST.

Mumsie and I got our hairs cut. ✂️
Freshly-cut hairs.

Lab pack! Pack 'o' Labs!
My mother is here for the week, and it’s been wonderful. She’s getting a whole lot of Goo time in..

Medium cheddar on potato bread made with real butter. It's how my mom shows her love. 💛💛💛
…and I’ve had grilled cheese for lunch three days in a row! YES!

HOT.
Jeff Goldblum somehow is hotter in his old age, eh? I want that space sweater he has on.

Gotta love Moira's commitment to her wigs. Also, I think it's hysterical that it took Josh three seasons to notice that she wears different wigs in every single episode. 😂
I love the Canadian show (also on Netflix) called “Schitt’s Creek” so much, I’m re-watching it from the beginning again. We started watching it when Goo was just born and who can remember that time?? It’s all a blur.

Everyone was surprised by the snow in Seattle yesterday. I'm not ready! Still enjoying the Fall colors too much! 🍁🍂🍃
Seattle decided to skip Fall and go straight into winter temps this year, GROSS. I already have my snow tires on. Better safe than sorry, buddy.

🍁🍂🍃
These are photos I took during our nap/drive (the car was parked, of course). I decided now that Goo is almost 10 months old and winter has started AND I’ve had all these bladder problems that it’s time to crib train for naps! He’s napping right now. After 17 minutes of sobbing.

Apparently this happened while I was in the shower this evening. 😂
Look at what he did while I was in the shower the other night! Whaaat?? Adorable.

Bear Cub and my mother. 💕
Mom and Bear Cub love each other.

How adorable is this look? And who else is so friggin' tired today from the time change?? (thanks @ellenvonunwerth 🌈)
Ellen Von Unwerth has been inspiring me with her photography since the mid-90’s.

Working on a new sugar skull painting for my Aunt Claire. 💖
Current painting project: a lil’ sugar skull for my Aunt Claire.

Reading time with Grammy Kim. 💙
Mom and Goo reading time.

Mumsie and me on a cold sunny dog walk yesterday.
We’ve been going for dog walks every day, of course.

Baby's new favorite spot.
Goo has a new favorite nook.

I made matching hedgehog scarves for my mother and I. She picked out the fabric. 💕
She watched the baby this morning while I whipped up these little scarves for us. She picked out the fabric.

Ughhhhh he’s crying again. What was that, a 15 minute nap???!!! Help me Rhonda!
