Morning ladies. Hope everyone had a good night. Of course, I didn't but only 1/2 because of Andrew. I didn't go to bed until 1230, I was watching a movie, but also we've had some burglary attempts at some neighbors and such here very recently, and dh was out late with friends so I was sort of keeping my guard up. I did go to bed but only dozed and everytime a dog barked my eyes popped open. Then when dh got home and got in the shower it was 145, Andrew started his waking up every few hours thing. I was hoping to sleep late today since it's Saturday, but at 555, Ally wanted to get up and watch cartoons, I told her to go back to bed. Then again at 700 and it was already getting daylight, so I got up. But that's okay, I'm staying home today and after lunch we can all have a nap. Alisa won't be home until close to dinner time.
I didn't do much since I last posted, I did win an ebay item for Andrew, I think a couple of sweat suits or something. I watched Man on Fire, it was okay. I did cry alittle.
Jill, hope you got all those errands ran yesterday.
Spryng, hope you're enjoying dh being home.
Penny, is there a party this weekend?
Hello Geri, Michelle, Mel, Cindi, Deana, Amy, Chris and everyone else out there. I think I'm gonna enjoy my coffee and do some ebaying for a while.
GOOD MORNING CRYSTAL!!! I do hope you get in a nap today. Me too. got in at 12am and because Bugga didn't take is mylanta for the babysitter, he was up at 1230 and 4:30. It may have been he was just looking to see If I was there too. Anyway, Today is just taking abigail to dance and getting the breaks fixed in the car. Then I will clean the house to prepare for the party tomorrow. It's pretty clean, just need to vacuume and do the bathroom, which I won't do till tomorrow. The tidying I will do today just so tomorrow is a breeze.
Have a good day all. ttyl

Hey everyone! Sorry I didn't get a chance to get back on yesterday, but we got in pretty late. Dinner was okay, everything I got last night was from the WW menu at Applebees, but for some reason it didn't agree with my stomach. I was up all night with the awfulest stomach ache not related to my TOM. I'm still feeling a little sick from it. I don't know if it was the oils or cheeses they used, but whatever it was I wasn't use to it. I probably won't be on too much today, I've got to get ready in a little while to go to my cousin's wedding. Thank you all for the b-day wishes!!!
Crystal: I am so sorry you didn't get enough rest last night. I hope you get in a much needed nap today.
Penny: I know the boys will have a great b-day party and get lots of neat stuff!! Sorry, but we didn't take any pics last night, I dont' even think I have any film for my camera, but I need to get some before I go to the wedding!
Mel: I hope you get in a nap too! Sorry bugga kept waking up, but you're right, he probably just wanted to make sure his mama was there!
Spryng, Cindi, Michelle, Ricci, Melinda, Geri, Chris, and all the rest of you wonderful ladies, I hope you have a great weekend!!!! Get some rest!! Take it easy if you can!!
How is everybody? Not too bad here. Today is my "drug" day as I call it. I get the pleasures of all my medicines today so I usually feel sick by evening time. The price you pay when you have arthritis, I guess.
Penny-My daughter is a copper head yet. My sister has put her off til tomorrow. Tonight Tiana gets baptized at church and they do a full submursion thing, so we did know if they have chlorine in the water but I didn't want her hair turning any stranger.
Hi to everyone else. I don't have much time. The school district does a fundraiser every year at the park. It's called Saturday Live and gives the PTA for each school a chance to make some money for school things. They have like 100+ booths for the kids to play games at. You can get 4 tickets for a buck and each game cost 1-2 tickets. A cheap way to spend the day. Then we hustle home so Tiana's dad can pick her up and take her to church. He's getting baptized too, and they have to attend a baptism class beforehand. So me, my husband, and the rest of my huge family are watching. It'll be neat.
We watched 50 First Dates last night. Tonight its Mystic River. 50 First Dates was funny but also kind of sad to me. Can you imagine going through the rest of your life not remembering the day before and starting all over again. I couldn't even begin to imagine the heartache you'd go through every day finding out what happened before. Not that she'd remember, but..
Or the family that had to tear her world apart every morning to start the day. SOOO SAD!!!!
Gotta go, my creep crawly child is on my lap now making it hard to type. She's got her paper and her pen...demanding to know my name so she can write it down (not like she can write or spell, but she loves to pretend). She's a little too smart for a 2 yr. old. BTW-I posted some pics on the MSN site. None of me because I can't get the scanner to work. But I had some recent pics of my kids and husband stored on a disk. TTFN...
Penny, you're right it depends on which kid is gone and since Andrew is always my biggest problem then it wasn't any different.
Amy, sorry you had a stomach ache all night. Hope today goes better.
Chris, I know what you mean about that movie. I cried like a baby when I watched it. But imagine the love they had for her to go through that with her, even though it may break her heart for a few minutes every morning, the love it took for them.
Anyways, just got out of the shower. I'm gonna get some cleaning done. TTYL
Hey everyone! Had a pretty good day yesterday. A lot went on and it's too much to type so I will just say it was a good day! LOL Bayley got shots and did great and she is in the 97% percentile for her height and normal for her weight and head so that was good and I got my hair done and got a couple things on sale at the gap, then we went to a football game last night and it was a great one. Ok so I did tell you what I did but not going into all the details
Crystal sorry you didn't sleep well last night. Cool about e-bay. Did you get a good deal? What kind of sweatsuits? I love buying stuff on there.
Mel sorry bugga didn't sleep either. Hope you get a nap in! Happy birthday to him!!!
Penny Happy Birthday to your boys!!! I hope you have a great party. I'm sure all your planning will make the party turn out great!!! Hope to see you on soon!!
Amy have fun at the wedding and sorry about your tummy ache. Any chance it was food poisoning? I hope not!
Chris sorry it's your medicine day and it makes you feel sick. That's the pits! Cool about the babtisms though! It should be a great night!
Ok guys I don't know how my house got so bad. I was doing so good for awhile with flylady but somehow I fell off the wagon. I need to get cleaning or I will be doing it all day! I'll check in later!! TTYL
Jill, I don't remember what brand of suits these were. They look almost brand new in the picture. ONe is solid red and the other has navy blue pants and blue and green striped shirt. There were also 3 sleepers, which look worn, but that just means comfy. All that for total, shipping and all, $7.50. Not bad, huh?
Glad you had a good day yesterday and Bayley did good. That makes for a nice time. Can you imagine taking 3 in for shots at the same time? I actually did that once until Alisa and Ally were caught up. Andrew just lacks one which is behind. Anyways, we've just finished lunch and I'm waiting for Andrew to fall asleep then hopefully it's nap heaven for me.
Hi gals- flyby for now. Still using DH's computer, but still wanted to quickly check in. We finally got the bedroom together!!! I'll try and post pictures later.
Is it Geri's Birthday?? Happy Birthday!
Married since 2002
Mother to 1 (10.03)
Hi again Okay, Here is a link to my photobucket album with photos of the redecorated room. I forgot to take a closeup of the bedding - but it is primary colored, safari pattern. I thought this would be easier and less slow than loading all the photos here. Click on the link if you want to see photos of the redecorated bedroom/bathroom.
Leigh it looks fabulous!! I love it!! I have a palm theme in our guest room which will be our master bedroom in a few years but for now my girls can share a room cuz I'm not comfortable letting them sleep upstairs alone. Is Liam walking yet? I know he was getting close did they figure out what was wrong with your computer?
I slept most of today I needed it, but also because I had to take a demerol for my cramps they were so bad LOL like you wanted to know that lol I am starting to plan Teagans Party which is going to be very small just my sisters and parents there so I'm thinking just cake and maybe like cheese and cracker and relish tray OR I could make a big sub (or buy one) and cut it up so there will be mini subs.
Crystal hope you get some good well needed sleep tonight!!
Jill glad Bayley did well with her shots and such. I want to see pics of your hair!!!
Ok I got pics of teagan walking that I want to post. Gotta go upload them to photobucket first. BRB
ha ha bet you didn't even miss me!!
What a cutie but of course I'm very biased lol
Ok I'm gonna relax a little before I have to go to work!
Love to you all!
