Day 115 – Great Expectations

Day 115

Today was a great day, but it’s not even over yet.  In fact, at the writing of this blog, I haven’t even been to Chick-fil-A. But I’m going, don’t you worry. And when I do, I will order a 6-pk of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies to share with the family. Me, Asher, Liza, and a fourth who will be staying with us – Mom!

It’s rare that a family member of mine comes to Florida, but two weeks ago my sister was here with her son Reid, tonight my mom comes, and in a couple more weeks my brother is coming with his boy, Luke. I guess I need to adopt children more often.

Speaking of adopted children, Asher has had a GREAT two days. Here he is enjoying his birthday gift from my mom:

After we played a little this morning (I was on Asher duty while mama was working), we headed out for a couple of errands: bank, Publix, and the pet store. While at the pet store, Asher and I took some time to check out the fish and birds, and a very cute rabbit.  **Side note** I have a thing for bunnies and rabbits. I don’t know from whence comes this soft spot in my heart for these furry creatures. But this bunny was awesome. Followed us all around the glass. And, he wasn’t scared of Asher’s pounding on the glass encasement.

(Yes, that is the dog’s free birthday toy in Asher’s mouth – I mean, it’s hard to blame him… looks like some delicious linked sausage.)

The afternoon consisted of cleaning up to make sure the house wasn’t a total pigsty for our special visitor. Asher tried out the Ergo for the first time facing forward while I vacuumed. You can tell how much he loved it:
