Merry Christmas

Ho Ho Ho (that is Bradyn's way of saying Merry Christmas!) Maybe til next year he will be able to say it. We left Illinois on Monday and unfortunately we got a very late start because I worked late. We did not leave until 7pm and drove for about 4 1/2 hours. We spent the night in Indiana and then got up Tuesday and drove the rest of the way. Bradyn did very well and we had no bad weather, which was great!

We got rested up yesterday. We went to the early church service at Bob's church. Bradyn slept thought the entire service because he did not nap at all during the day! Then we went to the late service with my family and Bradyn was awake the entire time! It was 12MN until it was over. I could not believe it but he was so good at that service for it being way past his bedtime.

Today we celebrated Christmas with Bob's family at lunchtime and now are at my parent's house for dinner. Bradyn had a blast opening gifts. He would rip one open and say "MORE" without even looking at the one he opened! Too funny!

Bradyn blew the socks off of Bob and I this week- on Tuesday at the hotel he was playing with the cups in the room and I asked him how many cups he had and I said one and he goes "two, three!" He was correct. He must have leaned that at daycare because we haven't taught him numbers yet! Unbelievable for a 20 month old to be able to count to Three.

Enjoy the rest of Christmas day with your family and friends. Remember...JESUS is the REASON for the SEASON!

WE have had our low temps set in. UGH! It was minus 3 when we got up and hasn't warmed up much since. The wind is unbelievable. We had a few blinks in our power today but we are lucky so far! We had a horrible ice storm here Thurs night into Friday. I missed work due to the weather and Bob went in later. Bradyn and I hung out at home and got some more chores done. That kid LOVES to help me clean. I hope that continues!

Saturday, Bradyn and I finished up my Christmas shopping and Bob did his. He always waits til the last minute to START!! We then went to see the Christmas lights in the evening. Bradyn sure loved them. Some of the lights were out because of the ice storm but it was still nice.

Today we stayed inside due to the low temps. A lot of churches cancelled due to the temps but ours didn't but we didn't go. We are getting packed for our trip and lots of last minute things to do.

I am off to work tomorrow and then a nice and much needed vacation ahead! Yeah!! Have a great week!

Snowy weather

We have had quite the weather here this week. Freezing rain on Monday which mad for a very long trip to work and then snow yesterday which made for a very long trip home from work. On top of all that it has been in the single digits here and we are to get MORE freezing rain tomorrow afternoon! When does spring arrive???

Other than the weather it has been a quite week. Busy today doing some errands, picking up some last minute Christmas presents and cleaning the house. Bradyn sure likes to help me clean. He gets out his little broom, dustpan and mop and follows me around the house- so cute.

He is really interested in my manger scene that I have under our tree. He likes to carry the animals around. His new words this week have been- sheep, donkey, baby Jesus and pocket! And it's only Wednesday!

Tomorrow is our 9 year anniversary. It is so hard to believe that we have been married that long. It seems just like yesterday that I was walking down the aisle! I am married to the most wonderful man and father. Bob is my best friend and I treasure every moment that we spend together. We are planning on just going out to eat when we are in PA for our anniversary so tomorrow I think that we will just order in and stay out of the nasty weather.

I am off to do some chores while Bradyn is napping. Have a good week.

Mischieveous child and sick cat

It has been a very busy week. Bob got home Thursday (thank goodness)! I had sick cat all week to take care of and a child that has been into everything!! He's not even 2 yet!! Belle had been very sick and so Bradyn and I took her to the vet on Wed. This is the first time he has gone with me because I usually make those trips on Saturdays so Bob can babysit but this time I had no choice. The vet thought that maybe she had a virus but she could have eaten something she shouldn't have also (which she has been known to do on several occasions!) so we opted to try an anti-emetic and appetite stimulator because she had not been eating and lost a lb. Then off we went to my foot doctor to see the nurse for a follow up from my surgery. I will post a pic of my foot later. It is healing well and feeling much better-finally.

When we got home I gave Belle her meds and she didn't fight me too much. On Thursday morning I gave her the meds and she began foaming at the mouth so I of course was scared to death that something was majorly wrong with her so I called the vet. As I waited for a call back Bradyn decides that he needs to imitate the cat and spits his milk out all over his shirt and onto my tile floor and then took his little hands and rubbed it into my floor! Oh was I mad! I am already late to work by this point! Anyways the vet calls back and tells me this is a normal reaction to giving cats meds (???)

Anyways, Friday she was finally acting normal again and eating on her own. Thank goodness! She is back to her normal self again. I was really worried about her. Bradyn decided to get into my hand cream one night this week while I was in the shower. When I got out I heard him say "uh oh, oh no no no" and he was hiding under my comforter. His one hand was coated in white hand cream and he said "oh no wash!"

Saturday, Bradyn got to meet Santa! While we were waiting in line we asked him if he was going to sit on his lap and he said "NO" so we watched the other kids go and sit on his lap and by the time we got there he did fine- he wasn't so sure at first but did just fine. He says "Santa and Ho Ho Ho" every time he sees him! We then went to dinner- what an experience that was. Bradyn decided he was not sitting in a high chair so we got him a booster seat which was fine until the end of dinner when he managed to make his seat fall off the chair with him in it- he hit the floor with a big THUD. Bob gathered him up and he didn't even cry. Thank goodness he was not hurt but everyone in the restaurant hurt him fall! (those booster seats should have straps on them to tie them down)- next time we will be sitting in a booth with the booster seat!

He came home with an "ouch report" from daycare this week. He and his little friend were sitting the teacher's rocking chair and bumped heads and he ended up with a black and blue eye! Poor guy. We finished up our Christmas shopping last night and then went to church today.

Enjoy the pics and have a great week.

It is VERY cold here- in the low teens! Then add the wind to it and it's even colder. I am not a fan of winter. We have been very busy here and so I apologize that I missed my last post. I am still trying to get caught up on things since we had been away for the holiday. Having Thanksgiving a week later this year has really messed up my schedule!

On Friday we got our Christmas tree- we always go to the same place. Bradyn had fun but it was soooo cold outside. We got it home and brought it in the house which he thought was pretty neat! Saturday, we got the tree decorated and it looks great! Bradyn tells the tree "nite nite tree" when I turn the lights off and when he gets up in the morning the first thing he does is goes and looks at the tree and says "hi tree hi"-so cute!

Sunday, we got most of our Christmas shopping done- yeah! Bradyn was a good little shopper again. Bob left for a trip again on Monday and won't be home until tomorrow so it's just Bradyn and I. I am hoping to get my Christmas cards done today. Am sure that I will have some help!

Bradyn has been eating really good for us for the past week. He must be going through a growth spurt because he's even eating his veggies- which never happens! He's been going potty for the girls at daycare again but not for me at home. Oh well, he's still young. He turned 20 months old yesterday- unbelievable!

I will try to get some pics posted when Bob gets home. I know that it has been awhile for that!
Have a good week!

Home Safely

We arrived home safely after a 12 1/2 hour trip- 2 hours longer than usual. The roads for the last 3 1/2 hour part of the trip were very bad and no salt trucks to be seen! It was about 40 mph on the interstate. We are happy to be back home. Bradyn did great on the trip. He only fussed about the last 20 minutes- he had enough!

Tuesday was a busy day at work and of course we were exhausted from the traveling. Bradyn cried when I dropped him off at daycare which I kind of expected after he spent 6 days with us. He was fine once I left. Am sure he was happy to see his little friends. I left work early to go have laser surgery on my foot. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting- the lidocaine was to worst part. It actually doesn't feel too bad today but it will take 6 weeks to heal so I have a long time to go!

Bradyn is napping now and I sure could take one too but I have too many things to do today. It is hard to believe that Christmas is only 3 weeks away. Just not enough time in the day to get things done. Bradyn has swim lessons tonight and Bob will get in with him since I can't with my foot. It is his last class. I think we will wait until the spring for the next class. We are planing on getting our Christmas tree on Friday after work.

I am sorry today that I don't have any pics to post because we forgot our camera in PA but as soon as I get it I will post some.

Have a good week. See you Sunday!

Winter Weather

Yes, we can never come home to PA without running into wintry weather! It always seems to happen right before we are ready to head back! And it is here today! Ice and snow later- just our luck! Looks like we will be driving through it our entire trip back to the Midwest!

Anyways, on Friday was our annual shopping trip! We are not early birds anymore and actually there really wasn't anything in particular we were going for. It is just a fun day to start our Christmas shopping. Actually, I had already started mine earlier- I am trying to do a lot more mail ordering each year. Bradyn was such a trooper! We got to the mall about 10:30 and left about 7:30 and he did not fuss once! He is such a wonderful little boy. He even took a good nap in his stroller. We did get some good bargains!

Saturday was a day of relaxation! I went with mu mom on a Christmas house tour. Bradyn sure missed me for the short time I was gone! Today we went to church with Bob's family. Our new little niece got baptized today. We were so happy that we got to be here for that. It's such a special day in her life! Bradyn was very good in church. He SHOUTED "amen" numerous times! His little ears are definitely listening to Pastor's words. So cute!

We are packing all of our "stuff" now and getting ready to head out in the morning. Good thing that our new vehicle has all wheel drive because I think we are going to need it. We were going to take Bradyn sled riding today but it is pouring down rain. Guess we will have to wait til next time. My brother-in-law came home toady to go hunting tomorrow so we got to see him. That was nice to visit with him.

Well, we will be back home for my next blog and I will get some pics up then. Back to work on Tuesday- I sure have enjoyed my time off. Have a good week.

Happy Thanksgiving

Today is a time to spend with family and friends and we are fortunate enough this year to be "home" for the holiday. It is great to be with our family. We had a VERY long trip. Bob picked me up after work on Tuesday with our new vehicle fully loaded and he had gotten Bradyn from daycare. So I changed clothes at work and then off we went. Our new vehicle rides so nice and did great through the snow! We left at 5:30 pm central time and got to PA at 5:30 am eastern time! Bradyn did really well. He watched 101 Dalmatians FOUR times without the sound. He did not like the earphones on his head! But he just sat and giggled and kept saying "Puppies" - so cute.. He is a belly sleeper so he was not real comfortable sleeping in his car seat. He would fall asleep and then 10 minutes later fuss and then fall asleep again. But overall he did very well. We stopped for dinner and then once for gas and that was it. We started to hit some snow around Columbus Ohio and then it got worse as we headed east and then we hit Somerset County and it was sleeting and snowing! Typical PA weather!!

We got to meet the newest member of our family-Mia. This is Bob's sister's baby. She is very cute and has lots of dark hair. Bradyn can say her name because we have been working on that.
He really isn't that interested in her but he did try to give her some blocks to play with!!

So we got some sleep yesterday and then last night we went to church with my parents. Bradyn was very good in church and then we stopped to see my grandma and she was very excited to see Bradyn. It has been almost a year since he has seen her. Today Bradyn slept in and then we had turkey at Bob's parents for lunch and then we are going to my parents for dinner. We did get to see my sister yesterday for a few hours which was nice but then she had to go home. Bradyn hasn't been afraid of going to anyone. He acted like he sees everyone all the time. My parents have an Irish Setter puppy and he really liked her which is unusual because he has been very fearful of dogs.

We are off to shop tomorrow but we definitely won't be early birds. I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday and I will have to post pictures when I get home!

Busy Busy

It has been a very busy last few days. So much to do and so little time. I really wanted to get my Christmas decorations out this weekend but that didn't happen. We had so many little errand to run. Friday was a busy day at work. When I went to pick Bradyn up from daycare he was sitting in the rocking chair with his little friend "Nanna" is what he calls her. Her name is Savannah. It was the cutest and I wish that I would have had a camera. They are really good buddies. If you ask him if he wants to go to school he says "Nanna"! So cute!

Saturday I got some things done around the house and then we did some errands and went out for dinner. Yesterday, we went to church and then did some more errands. Bradyn so quite a few trees with lights on them while we were out shopping and he was very excited about them so it will be fun to see what he does when we out our tree up!

We are busy now getting ready to travel for Thanksgiving. We are excited to see a lot of our family. I hate packing and there are never enough hours for me to get it done especially because I have to work today and tomorrow. I did start some of it. I will try to post while we are away! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Oops I forgot

Yes, I know I forgot to post last night- sorry! Last evening was busy and time just flew by. Bradyn and I have been by ourselves this week so it's always busy for me to get everything done in the evenings to prepare for the next day.

Anyways, I am SLOWLY getting used to my new vehicle. It rides really nice and is very quiet. Quite a change from my car! I was busy working Monday and Tuesday and then yesterday I took Bradyn for his Christmas pics. He really wasn't in the smiling mood but e did really well. They did get a few grins out of him. He looked so cute in his outfit. He was really patient while I was ordering the pics. We came home then and he took a nap and then off to swim class. He was so excited to go swimming but when we got there he wasn't really into it because it was actually kind of cold in there. The heat wasn't cranked up like it usually is. He kept saying "swimmy mommy" all week!

Yesterday I was watching Days of our lives and Bradyn really doesn't care to watch TV but for some reason he was interested in my soap and there was a girl crying on there and he said "crying mommy crying!" Not sure where he learned that word at! He is one smart boy!

Today Bob came home and Bradyn was happy to see him! But the poor little guy was asleep by 7pm because I had to get him up so early this morning because I had a meeting for work. He only got to see Bob for about a 1/2 hour.

Have a good weekend and I will be back on Sunday!

New Set of Wheels

YEAH! I got a new set of wheels- Finally! After 19 months of traveling with a child in a 2 door sports car I have upgraded to something with 4 doors! My life will be so much easier. We got a new SUV yesterday. I feel like I am driving a house on wheels! It is really going to be hard to get used to driving it because all I have ever driven is a very small car. It is a nice change and of course Bradyn loves sitting up high so that he can see out.

Bradyn had swim lessons on Wednesday and Bob was able to go. He did OK but wasn't really into it so much this week because he was tired. That was the day of no napping for Mommy! We had busy days since then. Saturday was car shopping and today was church and then we ran to the mall afterwards. Bradyn was really good in church. Usually one of us ends up going out into the entryway during the sermon because he gets a little noisy but he was perfect today! He really enjoys watching the kids around us.

We have a busy week ahead of us. Bob is going out of town again this week for work until Thursday. It's always busy for me when he's gone because I have to make sure I am off work on time to get Bradyn. I am going to try and get his Christmas pictures taken this week and he has swim lessons on Wednesday again.

Enjoy the pics!

Gloomy weather

It is very cold and gloomy here today. Looks like it could snow at any time. Bradyn and I went and did our grocery shopping today. I hate grocery shopping but I needed a few things so I just did it all today so I don't have to go back this weekend. He was pretty good but got a little fussy at the end because it was his nap time. However he's decided to go on strike today and NOT take a nap. He does this occasionally and it drives me crazy. Usually on Wednesdays he's a good 3 hour napper but not today! He just keeps on going! I don't know where he finds the energy. He usually doesn't get too fussy

So we are doing some chores around the house today. Nothing exciting but Bradyn does have swim lessons tonight. Bob and I have been busy working this week and really not much new.

Bradyn's new favorite word this week is HUG! He loves to give hugs and snuggle. I am trying to teach him what Santa says and he does it pretty good. I can't wait to see what he does this year when he sees Santa.

Hope everyone has a good week.

19 Months Old Today

Wow, I can't believe it but Bradyn is 19 months old today! I don't know where the time has gone. He has been a blessing to our lives! He is a really wonderful laid back boy! He is so much fun and we love to see him learn new things. He's like a sponge- absorbs everything we teach him!

Wednesday night was swim lessons and as always he enjoyed that. It is getting cold out now so it's not much fun to come out a 95 degree pool to 30-40 degrees outside but he only has 4 classes left and then we will take a break until spring.

Thursday Bob came home but it was late so Bradyn didn't get to see him but he was sure happy to see his daddy Friday morning. He's all about daddy after Bob's been gone all week. It is nice to have him home. We sure miss him when he's gone. Saturday we went shopping for a little while and then out to dinner. We all wore our Steeler gear in preparation for today's game! We had snow flurries yesterday and again today.

We looked at some cars last night and again today. I am so ready to trade my in! We are staying indoors this afternoon and watching the game and race. Hope everyone has a good week!

Another Busy Week

Yes, we have had another busy week here. Can't believe that it is Wednesday already! I have been busy with work this week and Bob left for Canada on Monday so it's just the little guy and me.

Bradyn has really been picking up new words lately. He hears you say something a couple of times and then he says it. He speaks quite clearly for his age. On Sunday in church he heard everyone praying and say Amen and then he said it 3 times! The people behind us were cracking up laughing. We have really been working with him on praying before each meal. On Tuesday we were eating breakfast and just had finished praying when he says "Daddy, pray, Amen" he did this three times and wanted to keep praying for daddy because he wasn't home! So funny!

Today we had errands to do. I had to take him to daycare for a short time because they were doing class pictures today so I waited for him to get done with that then we did our errands. The girls at daycare have a bunny in their room. They said yesterday they let it out to run around with the kids and Bradyn was scared! He sat on the chair and pulled his legs up so the bunny couldn't touch him. Not sure why he is scared because we have 2 cats and they are both bigger than the bunny! They said he is a "ham" at school!

We our home from our errands and Bradyn fell asleep on the way home so he is napping now. He has swim lessons tonight so we are looking forward to that. It is beautiful out today but windy. We may go out to play later. I think it is to cool off later this week so it's probably our last warm day of the year!

Have a good week!

Halloween Fun

We had a fun Halloween this year. Bradyn was a chicken! He looked so cute. If you asked him what he was he said "kickin"! He got to dress up in his costume on Thursday and go trick or treating for daycare to all the businesses in town. He came home with a HUGE bag of candy. The girls at daycare loved his costume.

We careved "mumpkins" as Bradyn calls them on Thursday night. He thought it was fun but wanted NOTHING to do with the guts. Then we lit them and put them on the proch and every time we walked by the door he had to stop and look out at them! Very funny!

Friday night we decided not to go trick or treating because Bradyn had so much candy already so we stayed home and answered the door for the kids. I dressed Bradyn in his costume and he had so much fun. He got so excited each time the doorbell rang- he would run to the door and couldn't wait to see who was out there.

The weather has been beautiful here this wekend- almost like summer is here again. I got some things done around the house and then we spent awhile outside playing. Bradyn is obsessed with his mower (he calls it a manow). He wants to take that thing everywhere! Yes, even in the house. It may have to get washed so we can bring it in for the winter. We went to dinner last night.

Today was off to church and then grocery shopping. Bradyn took about a 30 minute nap on the way home from church and has been on the go since then. We have another busy week ahead of us. Bob is off to Canada agiain tomorrow until Thursday so it's just Bradyn and I. It was nice to have Bob home for a week finally. He got to go to Bradyn's swim class on Wed and Bradyn enjoyed having him there.

Here are the pics that I promised. Enjoy!

Flurries in the air

Yes, we had flurries here on Monday! Yuck! I am so not ready for that! However it is very sunny here today and nice. It's actually to be in the 60's for Halloween which is very unusual because it's always very cold when those trick or treaters come.

Bradyn's daycare is taking his class trick or treating tomorrow to all the local businesses in town. Am sure that he will have fun. He's going to be a chicken and I promise I will post pics later this week. I have no idea how to download our camera to the computer so I have to have Bob do that for me!

We have had a busy week so far. We went to church on Sunday and then did some car shopping afterwards. Yes, I am still driving a 2 door sports car with an 18 month old child! It is definitely not a family vehicle and I can't wait to get rid of it!! Bradyn is just getting too tall to get in and out of the back seat. It's time for it to go! Yeah!!!

I worked late Tuesday which worked out OK since Bob is home to pick up Bradyn. Tonight we have swim lessons which Bradyn is really enjoying this time around. Bob gets to go with him tonight and this will be the first time since he moved up to the big boy class.

Bradyn cracks me up sometimes with the things he says. He really does have quite the vocabulary for a an 18 month old. This week I put his mittens on him and he just stood and looked at them for the longest time and then he says "SOCKS"- too funny! He's probably wondering why Mommy puts socks on his hands!

Extreme Makeover wrapped up here yesterday. The house is beautiful! It was for a really deserving family. I actually work with the girls' spouse that had nominated the family. The little boy has a bone disorder that make his bones very fragile. It will be very exciting to watch it on TV. They were really pushing to get it done on time because we had such awful weather this past week and they were behind but it all worked out. I will let you know when the show is going to air.

Check back later this week for pics-I promise! Happy Halloween to everyone!

Windy Illinois

Well, the wind in central Illinois has kicked in! It feels like winter is here with that wind. There is a wind advisory out for tomorrow. That is what I hate about living here. It's way too cold and windy to go outside and play so we have been spending our time indoors.

Bradyn is feeling much better finally. He is still chewing on those hands and working on his teeth but he is not cranky anymore. Thank goodness! He had swim lessons on Wednesday and is doing really well. He will try to blow bubbles in the water and did a back float with his head in the water so he can get used to water in his ears. He did really well with that.

Thursday Bob came home and Bradyn was quite happy to see his daddy! He really misses Bob when he's gone now that he's older.

Today we went to vote (yes you can vote early in Illinois) this is the first year that we did that and it was great. No waiting in long lines! Then we went to the mall for a little bit and then out to dinner. We are watching the Penn State game now. It's nice to see the local games from home.

Tomorrow we are off to church and grocery shopping. I don't have any pics to post tonight but will try to do that tomorrow. Oh yes, my new niece has a name- Mia Grace! We are excited to meet her. They were to come home from the hospital today.

New Member of the family

I am an aunt again! How exciting! My sister-in-law Kristin and her husband welcomed a little girl into the world today. Congrats to them. She is a big girl weighing in at 9lbs 1oz and 21 1/2 inches long. She has a full head of brown hair! Which is funny because Bradyn is 18 months and hardly has any! They haven't decided on a name for her yet. We can't wait to meet her next month.
We are doing ok here. Bradyn has had a rough couple of days. The poor guy has 4 teeth coming in and is just miserable which is totally unlike him. His poor little nose just runs like a faucet. His favorite word right now is "outside". The little guy just wants to spend all the time outside and it is too cold. It's only 50 here today and is to rain the next 3 days.
Bob is in Canada until tomorrow night so we will be happy to have him home for a little while. He said that it has snowed there this week- sure hope he doesn't bring that home with him!
The other exciting news here is that Extreme Makeover is here filming this week and it's to air in January. I really wanted to help volunteer but it's hard with working everyday. I want to drive by the house this weekend to check it out and see if I can see any famous people!
I hope that everyone is having a great week. Talk to you Sat!

Fall is here

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Fall has finally hit us here in Illinois! It is COLD! Last night we took Bradyn to a hockey game. He did pretty well but was a little antsy at times. It is a little long for a kid to sit still so overall he did OK. He seemed to enjoy it for the most part. We are just glad that we didn't renew our season tickets because I know he wouldn't do well every weekend!

Bradyn has been quite cranky all day today from the time he got up! He is working on 2 molars and they must be painful. This is the first time he's been cranky with any of his teeth so I really can't complain. He spent about 1 1/2 hours outside playing today while I worked outside putting away my flower boxes. He needed the fresh air. It was cool but sunny. Then tonight we went to the race track to watch Bob race but didn't stay very long but it got COLD! I HATE cold weather!

Bradyn's swim classes started on Wednesday and he did really well. He actually stuck his face in the water to try and blow bubbles. This is a BIG accomplishment for him because he hates to get water ion his head or face in the bathtub so needless to say hair watching is a challenge each and every time! He is one of the youngest in this class because it's for 19 to 36 months.

Lots of errands to do tomorrow and then the work week starts all over. Bob leaves for Toronto on Monday so it's just the little guy and me again this week. My plan is to post every Wed and Sat so enjoy the rest of your weekend and I will be back on Wed!

The Beginning

Here we go! This blogging is all new to me but I want to give it a try. Bradyn just turned 18 months old and I thought that this would be a good way to keep our family and friends updated on our day to day life since we live so far away from everyone. Wednesdays are my days off from work and I love having that extra day with Bradyn plus it's a good break for him from daycare right in the middle of the week.

He went for his 18 month check up and continues to be tall and thin like his daddy! He is 34.25 inches (93%) and 25lbs. 12.8 oz. (49%). He is growing like a weed and is soooo much fun! He has quite the vocabulary for his age. He really enjoys going to daycare and spending time with the other kids. It's good for him except when there is some sort of illness going around (colds, stomach bug, etc)!!! He is learning so much there and he's in a great Christian environment. They have even taught him to pray and he says "Amen" He seems to amaze us everyday. He is interested in the potty training thing (must have picked that up at school) and he's doing pretty well with that.

Bob and I keep busy chasing after Bradyn! Bob is actually in PGH this week at his Alma Mater CMU for work. He enjoys going back there every year. Bradyn starts swim lessons tonight. He moves up to the next class so we will see how that goes.

I will try to update this once or twice a week!
