we have a dog

she has been with us for about a month and she is wonderful. there is a huge story to go along with her (isn't there always when you add a family member)
she is cute and sweet and although she is another responsibility, I really look forward to seeing her every day. And I'm kind of surprised.
Took her to the vet for her SD card, which is more like a chip for them to scan if she gets lost. That's how much we love her already.

food! quarter pounder with cheese with extra pickles and extra onions baby!! perfect Sunday lunch as far as I"m concerned :)

Add into that, eating said lunch while dreaming about an ipad. Also eating lunch while working with my netbook that I love but want to upgrade to an ipad. While watching dvr'ed Law and Order on our television. Each day, I consider how lucky I am.

One for the afternoon

The older two are at a birthday party. The baby is home with us. We have taken a walk to eat our lunch and walked back. Our service at lunch involved someone who was working on a sales career. We have napped and watched television. We ask each other if this is what one child feels like. We kind of can't wrap our minds around it. We are enjoying him. We are missing the others.

Nana's nightgowns

Today was a day where I looked forward to putting everyone to bed. Most of all myself. After my bath, I put on a jewel toned, beautiful green nightgown that was my nana's, never once wondering ' do diet pills work' because my mind is so relaxed. I have many of her night gowns from over the years, but the ones that I have gotten from her estate are especially comfortable. A few times a week I will wear one and it always is comfortable and it always makes me feel better.

Holy Smokes my kids are loud

But now, since we have been in our new bigger, much loved, bigger house, they aren't even as close to as loud as they used to be. Even if they took some hgh supplements, I don't think that they could be any louder! The designated noisy areas are in the basement and in the backyard which, are a nice ways away from where I usually am. It's just nice to have some distance before the soundwaves hit my ear drums.

A nanny

I wish. But, since I'm laid up this weekend and I have a woman staying in my home and caring for my children, I'm pretending that I have a nanny. I love it.

The 4 year old isn't having it though. He keeps sneaking away to 'wash his hands' or 'find a car' and then he ends up in my room and won't leave. He really misses his dad. He really misses his brother who is staying with a friend of mine. But, for now he is asleep and I'm living the nanny dream.

Jack Frost Cold Pack

In my recouperation kit from dental surgery today, they put in one of those cold packs that you snap and shake to make cold. I am in LOVE with it!

I'm supposed to pack for 20 minutes then rest my face for 20 minutes. So guess how long the cold lasts? 20 minutes!! And then guess how long it takes to chill in the refridgerator before I can use it again? Yep, 20 minutes.

It's so cool when things work like that!
