Hello everyone! I am very thankful that my dear husband let me have me time yesterday. I went on a weekend trip to have some little entertainment in Oklahoma. We go there once in a while when we he has a few days of. But this time we take turns on going there. I had lots of fun. I missed dear hubby and our little girl but I need some time off for myself once in a while – away from house chores and routine.
On my way home, I stopped by at a department store to buy some birthday gifts – for a friend’s daughter and for my niece. I took my time. I felt great when I got home. 🙂
How about you? What do you do or where do you go for a me time?
It worries me a lot when my darling daughter gets sick? Who wouldn’t worry when someone in the household is not feeling well? I mean if a family member is ill, our instincts tell us to check everything. We quickly check the temperature by feeling the forehead of the neck. We ask where is hurting. If he or she points to the head, then we’ll let them take a pain reliever. But to double check the temperature, we use a thermometer. It’s a very essential item in the house. If the body temperature is 100.4 F or over, then a fever is running.
Braun No Touch Forehead Thermometer
When I take my little one to the doctor’s office for a check up, they check her temperature by lightly swiping a thermometer on her forehead. I thought I would like to have a thermometer like that. But the Braun® No touch forehead thermometer is just right. I am very pleased to get a chance to try the Braun® No touch forehead thermometer. You just have to point the device on the forehead 1-2 inches away then it checks the body temperature quickly. I tried it on me and my daughter twice. My daughter’s temperature was 94.5 on first try and 94.8 on the second try. Mine was 98.4 on first try and 98.5 on second try.
The Braun® No touch forehead thermometer is battery-operated so you have to put two AA alkaline batteries in it. I was glad it came with two batteries already.
It comes with two AA batteries.

Petting the sheep.
On our way home from my work last night, I remembered to stop by at someone’s house to pick up a pre-owned Mickey Mouse toddler dress sold to me for $3. It was from a local online garage sale group on Facebook. Unfortunately, the toddler dress was not on the porch so my darling daughter and I headed home. We passed thru downtown Wylie and I saw some barricades and when I looked around, the park was all lit up. I thought something nice is going on at the park. So I told DD about it and we agreed to stop by and look. It was about 7:30 P.M.
So many people were there – grown ups, big kids, small kids, and babies. There were animals, too. I didn’t have much time to take photos of the tents and booths because K was excited to look at the animals. It was a mini Petting Zoo. There were two goats, a sheep, and a pig. Boy, how she loved that! There was a super big inflatable bounce and slide but we didn’t go there because it was so high and K said she liked petting the animals better.

Then we head to the playground because K wanted to swing but the four swings were occupied. So she went to the other playground set. She had fun climbing up and down the stairs and sliding down the small and big slides. Then I heard the emcee said that it was 10 minutes before the fireworks. So we waited for it before we went home. It was nice. K said, “I love watching fireworks.” “Me, too,” I said. After the fireworks, I let K play for 20 minutes then we head home.
By the way, on our way to the car, I asked someone what’s the special event about. He said it was National Night Out for the city.
