The most wasted of all days, is one without laughter!

This N That

I'm getting ready for a gold party tonight. I went to one at Josie's house about 3 weeks ago and had fun hanging out with some girls and actually left the party with $150 bucks for a small handful of jewelry I don't wear, so I decided to have one! But I am going with an 80s theme. I have the music playing now and have my outfit laid out! I'm so excited and ready for some girl time! Pictures will be posted!

My family is in Georgia at my niece, Heather's 6th birthday party. Hank has a camera too! So I'm sure those pics will make it here too! Mom drove with me and the kids to meet Hank halfway and eat. Then mom and I headed back here. All the possibilites swam through my head of what I could do 'by myself.' But all I did was clean, get coupons ready, and play on the computer. I didn't turn on the tv or radio or anything. Man... does that say something about me? I could've been at a movie or out partying (cause that is so me!). Oh, well, I guess it's time to admit it. I was savoring the lack of noise and enjoying my name (aka Mom) not being called every minute. I miss them already though. Those crazy 3 make me smile.

We show our house two times tomorrow, plus we have an open house! So who knows! Maybe this is our weekend to sell! I'm praying it is.

The Day I Breathe

That's what today is for... it's the day Hank comes home and the day I get to finally take a deep breath. Not that I don't get down moments. Once the kids go to bed, I have time. And Sophie doesn't require every bit of my attention when the boys are at school (just most of it!). But those moments are usually filled with cleaning and such.
Over the past three weeks, my sleeping patterns have gotten horrendous. I guess you could call it situational insomnia or something. I find myself jumping at every noise, restless, antsy and craving adult conversation.
Even as I sit here typing and watching snow falling outside, the peace that usually comes with either of those activities alludes me.
When Hank gets here tonight, I know what it's going to feel like. It's going to feel like my entire being had taken a deep breath, and I will nod off early and sleep late. So I'm on a countdown.

And it gets better... Hankie has Monday and Tuesday off. Monday because it's my birthday and Tuesday because he has traffic school. I'm so ready for this. I know we are only a full month removed from all the holiday stuff, but it's tougher than I thought doing this by myself during the week.

This is not a pity party. We know God has us where He wants us. We know that His timing is the ultimate goal. We are waiting and learning to cope.

So here I sit, on the day I get to breathe...

Remember, Jamie!

Sophie says the following things that I love:

* "Can my take a bath?" or "Can my hab a snack?"
* bishes = fishes ; This can attract some funny looks when she is talking really loudly about bishes in public places!
* She can be sitting on the couch and act like she's in "twubble" and needs me to "wescue" her. I think this is because of Dora.

Bryant still says the following:

* "He bout we do this?"

Tres says the following A LOT:

* I'm just asking! I'm just asking!
