What to do...

It's Sunday, and I have been planning on going back to work tomorrow. But I'm a little nervous about getting back into the swing of things. I am feeling ok, but if I move around too much, walk too much, or ride in the car too long, my tummy hurts. It's not horrible, but I don't want something to come undone or too have too much pain. And going back to work means long drives and a long time to sit in a chair. At home I am doing light housework and moving around, but if I get tired I can lay down for a minute. Can't do that at work. But... I don't get sick time, and I used all my vacation at Christmas. Yikes... I may stay home tomorrow and go in Tuesday.

Boo is doing ok potty learning. One day he uses the potty a lot and the next day he does not. This morning he pooped his pants and said "I need to tee tee potty!" Too late... At least he is making the connection. Nathan bought him some Cars movie pull-ups and he loves them. I don't think he is going to want to wear any other diapers. And he gets upset when you take the diaper off and throw it away. Silly boy.

Getting back to normal

I am feeling much better and getting strength back and getting back to normal. I feel yucky when I first wake up for a little while and then feel better after I move around. I am glad I kept Boo home with me even though there were a few rough moments here and there. I am visiting some family today and taking Boo to the allergy and asthma dr later, so I will probably be tired, but I will make it.

We have had a couple of showings of the house. None were too serious, but it's good to have interest.

ABCs and 123s

Chesley can count to ten!! Well... sort of. He hears counting a lot and really tries. Last night he pretty much got it! We all clapped and laughed and had a good time with it. Then we sang our ABCs and he chimes in "A...E...G...LMNOP...TU..W..YAY!!!"

On a gross note.. pottytraining is so gross. The potty we have downstairs is horrible. Everytime he pees, it goes all over the floor. Then I didn't get a diaper on quick enough and he pooped on the floor in the kitchen!! Yuck!!

I am feeling better today, but still hurting. I really wanted to keep him home with me. I know it's probably not the smartest idea, but I can't help it. I'm trying not to take pain meds and feeling ok. He is calmed down now and watching Elmo. He has been sleeping all night!! Finally!! So that is very good.

I'm home

Surgery is not fun. I was feeling a lot of pain after surgery, so the doctor admitted me to the hospital for the night. With some good medicine, I was feeling better and resting. Then later, I could not pee! They used a cathetar. Then later still, they had to cathetar again, and again... 3 pm the next day, I finally peed. They were not going to let me go home till I could pee. I was also throwing up a lot after surgery from the meds. I got home at 5 pm yesterday and slept well. I was so happy to see my little Boo and to sleep in my own bed. I will try to rest today and let Nathan take care of Boo. Nathan's parents and my mom kept Boo yesterday and last night. So we are very grateful to have help so I can rest and get better.

I am having surgery tomorrow to remove my gallbladder, not anything major, but still surgery. A little scary. I have been having off and on upper abdonimal pain. I've had all kinds of tests done and finally we got an answer on what was the problem. I'm trying not to worry too much about how long I'll have to stay home and how long I will feel bad. I'm hoping that it will be a quick recovery.

Playing with toys

Boo really enjoys playing with his toys and playing with Daddy! Nathan has been working a lot lately, and hopefully he will be home all weekend. Boo definitely misses him and is happy when he does get to spend time with Daddy. Last night, Boo was almost asleep and just couldn't turn off his thoughts and was saying

"Play with Daddy. Play cars, play choo choos, play Thomas, play airplane, play dump truck, color, ..."

And he was so excited to play with Daddy today. Nathan told me Boo was listing off his toys with him too.

Happy Birthday Lil Boy!

I can't believe my baby is two years old today! It is a nice rainy cold day. Nathan is at work. We are being lazy and hanging out at home till it's time for the party. We are going to Bounce Zone where they have big bouncers and slides. We will have Elmo birthday cake and lots of fun.

Yesterday we went to Kinsley's birthday party, also at Bounce Zone. Boo loved it! He got really cranky since he skipped his nap. Let's hope he takes a nap today since we are supposed to go to Corben's birthday party at Chucky Cheeze's right after Boo's party! Yesterday he was zombied out after Bounce Zone. It should be a fun magical day for a little boy.

A busy week

This week at work was so busy! And Nathan has been working late... And I don't think I mentioned it, but Chesley broke my beloved prized Nook ereader a few weeks ago. I bought another one, and it was acting up, so after two trips to Barnes & Noble, I exchanged it. Fun times. And I bought some new Brighton charms for my bracelet that I've had for a while. I just re-discovered it recently! It makes me happy to look at my pretty sparkly shiny things! And I bought Nathan a new bible for his birthday. It is really nice with a leather cover, not too big, but the print is not too tiny.

A Great Surprise

Last night, my friends and family gave me a great semi-surprise birthday party! What is a semi-surprise party you ask? Well, I knew we were going to mom's for dinner with family, but I did not know that a few of my friends and Nathan's family would all be there. My lovely bestest friend Tabatha was there! We had great food and a great time. It was also a celebration of Mamaw Celeste's 79th birthday. What a great night!

Happy New Year!

Today finds me beginning a new year and being a year older! I can't believe I am 30 years old! Of course after chasing Chesley around, I have felt old for a while, but today is proof. Just kidding. I feel so much happier being 30 than when I turned 20. I know who I am. I am comfortable in my own skin. I have everything I could ever want, a family, a good job, a nice house, car, the whole package. Of course everyday is not perfect, but I am blessed! So come on 30, I'm ready!
