        @bestcee Appendicitis and appendectomy on Tuesday. She seems to be doing really well. They caught it super early. My only paranoia now is that she's been asleep for like 10 straight hours. I'm sure she's just catching up on all of the sleep that she's missed, but it makes me nervous since she never sleeps like this.

        Sleeping is good usually. Dh always says that's when the body heals the most!

      My MacBook is making noise, I'm pretty sure MacBooks shouldn't make noise. This isn't good.

        @scrappyjedi - a rattling humming type of noise. It has stopped and I was able to get everything backed up. But I'm thinking that things aren't magically fixed... sigh.

        That actually sounds like the cooling fan and not anything that would be terribly expensive to repair. If you have a newer MacBook, then your hard drive is an SSD and the fan should be the only moving part. If the fan stops completely, then your system could overheat, though.

        Thanks for that info @scrappyjedi! My macbook is probably four years old. The battery is shot on it and I have been meaning to take it in, but I wanted to make it through MOC first! However, my husband did say to just start looking at new ones though :-)

        @Juliestcyr That's great that kids can apply and renew by mail! Children have to appear with both parents (or with additional paperwork if only one can come) to apply and renew until age 16 (strange age since everything else here is 18). After 16, they have to appear in person to get their passport and after that they can renew by mail.

        I don't entirely understand it all... the guy was trying to explain it all to me today. Until 16 they're somehow attached to the parents' passports, after 16 they're on their own which is why they have to do it in person one more time (almost like a new passport, I guess).

        Our driver's license place (DMV) had gatekeepers of sorts that rejected everyone without proper paperwork right off the bat before they got too far. That way everyone who got to a "real" line had everything ready to go. Still took forever though.

        Last year we took a road trip in the middle of MOC too. I kept a notebook with me and drew out my design ideas so I could still keep it on my brain. Worked out pretty well. Safe travels!!

        There are lots of photos to scrap! He had to take them to prove that he didn't just buy the cookies. I told him that taste alone proved that he didn't buy them... no bakery would stay in business selling cookies that tasted like that! lol!

        Hahaha this made me laugh! Most German baked goods are actually really good though. My opinion. But then I buy them in a bakery or my German relatives bake them. He was probably also messing around with different measurement standards? I know from experience that making mistakes there can do a lot of bad things, even though I was obviously working the other way around.

        I didn't even have actual glitter... but my daughter bought a tube of Christmas balls for our tree that were glitter covered and I bought a set of gift card holders that were glitter covered. Just those few items and there is glitter everywhere!

Was so proud of my spread all coordinated with my Hello October card and then went to put the calendar card on there and realized that week was still September. :-/

        @bestcee The teen is home and said that his teachers say that there is still a possibility of a strike, since this was just an agreement between the bargaining committees, and hasn't been approved by CPS or CTU yet. But it seems unlikely that they'll strike. Definitely last minute... Alex said lots of tired or absent kids today.
