I am in need of some deep breathing and wrapping my mind around why today is a good day. I have been on the phone for over an hour dealing with a stupid lab bill, and have yet to get the issue resolved. So irritating. On top of that, I am STILL sick. I have yet to keep anything in my system for the last 3 days, and it is really starting to get old. I am tired of feeling horrible and not wanting to stray far from home, for fear of getting sick while I am out with Abby. So, thankfully, it's a good day BECAUSE.....
***While I have been sick, I am feeling okay for the most part (just exhausted, but what's new), and I am NOT dehydrated or having contractions (both of which would be BAD).
***Laurie Berkner's new CD came out today, and we were able to get one. Abby is in HEAVEN!:) For those of you with no kids, she is like crack for kids-haha! They love her. She sings wild, goofy songs that kids LOVE!
***The Olympics start FRIDAY! YAY! I am a huge Olympic watcher and fan!
***Abby NEVER fails to crack me up. I looked over today and she had a high-lighter. Ugh...but, she drew on her arm and said, 'look, I have stamps on my arm like Uncle does!' haha! So, when she comes to me in 15 years wanting stamps like Uncle, I am sending her to you, UNCLE TIM!:)
***Scott, his Dad, and a friend are putting up our fence this weekend! YAY!
***One of my friends/sorority sisters is getting married this weekend. The wedding is here, so I will be able to go (no more long drives for us until POST-Olivia), and I will get to see lots of old friends.
***Okay, I am not one of those moms that wants to talk and compare kids, even though we meet them every where around here-ugh! (I despise it actually, because who gives a rip if my kid was walking before yours. In my opinion, they will all be walking, talking and potty-trained by Kindergarten, so who cares-haha!). So, I try really hard to not brag about Abby's intelligence to anyone other than family;-), but I was truly impressed with this. She and I colored this pic yesterday. She brought it over to me and told me she wrote Dora's name on it. Sure enough, she showed me, and she wrote D O R A (or the best 2yr. old version I have seen:)! I swear, this child is going to be more intelligent than Scott and I by the time she is in 3rd grade. haha!
(it's there on the bottom left...the A ends on Dora's butt! haha! Not bad for a 2 yr. old!...her R needs a little work, though-haha!)
***Good cookies. :)
***Scott will be home from work in about 2 hrs. (this momma is TIRED...and I have to go to the library and Farmer's Market when he gets home, so I am ready for him to get home...I am trying to talk Abby into going with me now, but having no luck-haha!)
