TSSG Weekly Edit No. 53

Happy Friday, gang! I feel like I’m slowly crawling out of the hole that was my life in August aka me trying to work while the kids were out of school with no nanny and all of my babysitters at college. Oh yeah and that whole moving and my husband getting Bell’s Palsy thing. September’s outlook is bright! The apples are ripe for picking, I can taste the cool fall weather on the horizon and I have a pretty exciting trip at the end of the month that I can’t wait to take you on.

Also, I’m speaking at a conference! Ok, ok I’m leading a small roundtable as a mentor but nevertheless, I’m excited!! I’m already brainstorming ice breakers, conversation starters and cersies for my attendees. Would you rather have mini champagnes or beauty goody bags? But seriously if you are coming to The Southern C Summit in February sign up for my roundtable and we will have a grand ole time!

Thank you to all of you who have messaged us on Instagram about Zach’s Bell’s Palsy or Hayden’s front teeth that she may or may not lose. I try to respond to all of them (eventually) but I’m sure I’ve missed a ton. Zach is slowly but surely getting a tiny bit better. We are on week 3 and are doing all. the. things. Meds, acupuncture, massage, herbs, oils, eye patches, eye gel, you name it. Bell’s Palsy is a beast and the most frustrating because you can’t pinpoint the cause, can’t do anything to treat it (really) and don’t know how long it will last.

Hayden’s teeth on the other hand are looking great. (She jumped into the side of the diving board trying to jump in the pool and her teeth were lose and turning grey.) As it turns out she might not lose them and they are tightening up. TBD on if we keep the chic grey color.

Scottie turned three and has been a cuddly, sassy little animal. We don’t call her the honey badger for nothing! You know, she looks cute but is fierce and tough as nails and may or may not attack you at any moment.Her personality extremes have gone up a notch or ten since becoming a threenager. She also spends a great deal of her life on the floor since she likes to throw her body down in protest of damn near everything.
