By the numbers...

I thought I'd try one of those fun by the numbers posts to fill you in on the last week, but I must confess most of the numbers will be completely made up in the event that I can't actually recall how much of something took place.

7 - loads of laundry completed; this one may actually be a conservative estimate(beach laundry, linens, clothes and more)

3 - trips to the grocery store in the last week; I rarely remember or think to make a list until I'm walking in the store, so I usually end up returning a few days later, but I'm okay with it. I only had to take Jack with me once so that means two more bakery cookies hopefully found another home.

5 - the number of meals and or dishes prepared for people other than my immediate family. Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons were spent helping prepare this week's Wednesday Night Supper at church. On Thursday, I took dinner to a friend who had a baby a couple of weeks ago. Friday & Saturday mornings I made dishes for MOPS and a baby shower, respectively. Sunday afternoon, I prepared and delivered dinner to another friend who had just had a baby. (Yes, I know a lot of pregnant people.)

2 - doctor's appointments I had this week. One to have my eyes and vision checked, the other a prenatal visit.

1 - doctor's appointments that I arrived at the appropriate time for. Yes, I'm blaming it on the pregnancy brain and my multiple trips to the grocery store.

5 - number of sweet friends that we accompanied to Goldbrook pumpkin farm on Wednesday. Jack loved the train ride and hayride with Andrew, Carson and Davis. Mrs. Andrea & Mrs. Jenn were pretty fun too!

2 - photo shoots I participated in. The first on Tuesday for Initials, INC's Spring & Summer catalog; and the second with the Garrett clan in Dillard on Saturday.

732 - photos I've taken during the month of October. At some point I promise to sort through them and post a folder. When? If I could quantify I would certainly include it in this list.

20 - dollars I won Thursday evening in our monthly Bunco gathering. I also snagged one of Kim's super cute homemade door prizes.

14 - hours (give or take 3) spent cleaning, moving furniture and basically readying our basement for occupancy. With some much appreciated help from my mom & brother, as well as Josh's dad who helped get the cornices in place. It's starting to take shape down there.

You have been busy! I love your numbers post. I might have to try that, but it would mean that I would have to remember what I've done and that usually doesn't happen!
