Don't Worry About ME! I'm Having a Ball!

All the days have run together this week
and I haven't been able to keep track of what day it is.
But I know a Friday when I see one!
Thank heavens it's Friday!

For more Friday Fun than you will ever find here -
Go see Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin Time


* I've been on newborn baby schedule the last two days.
I get up every four hours throughout the night to "feed" my baby.
Instead of delivering a bottle of milk,
I come in with the nectar of the Gods:
Percocet and an Ice Pack.
Don't you wish I was your mom?


* Garrett's "emergency" surgery went well.
He's in recovery mode.
He's a HE, so recovery includes a LOT of groaning
and saying, "You have NO idea what this feels like."


* If I EVER hear the word "balls" in ANY context again,
I will scream and ban the person from the house.


* My brother told me that there is an amnesiac in anesthesia so patients usually don't remember surgery, recovery or the first few hours after recovery.
He's mistaken.
Garrett remembers EVERY single thing he said and did in recovery.
So that means, his memory of CRAWLING from the car to the couch after surgery is crystal clear.
He hasn't forgotten that I "made" him do that.
Children's Services is probably on their way here to remove me from the home.
I'll go pack.
Will it be tropical?  Do I need a swimsuit?



* You would think that in a week's time, something else would have happened in this house.
Surely there is more going on.  But no, it's all been about "balls."
Oops, I said "balls."
Ban me from the house.
I'll go pack right now...... I'll grab a swimsuit........and a good book.

* I LOVE our weather.
Seriously LOVE it.
Yesterday was foggy, cloudy, sunny, rainy, and then tornadoey.
When the tornado sirens go off,
we always go outside to watch for a tornado.
Why would you "duck and cover" and miss all the action?
Right now it's raining water and sometimes slushy snow.
Just as long as it's not raining men, I'm happy!


* I NEED a cupcake or ten.

* Oh and for fun,
I'm joining up at
 The Girl Creative
You should too!
Get going!

You don't need to hang out here all day!
Seriously!  Don't worry about me. 
I'm having a ball!

All day yesterday I thought it was Friday!

On Wednesday, at work, I thought it was Thursday.

I'm glad today really IS Friday. Except it was supposed to be a track meet day for William, but his coach told him yesterday at practice that he wasn't running in ANY event. He's REALLLLLY mad...and I'm sad, but there are 3 meets next week THREE!!!

Get a nap and some cupcakes!!!

Gina- you crack me up! And you have my sympathy. Man patients aren't much fun.
Oh- and around here- "crackers" is often the term used. Silly boys.

If it was raining men, you would just have to listen to more talk of balls. Uh-oh, I think I just got banned from your house. I'll grab a swimsuit and meet you wherever you are going since you are banned too.

Just found your blog, and now I can't remember where from. But I'm so glad I stopped by, with a house full of three girls, your glimpse of the other side was great. A good giggle for this mom. "You have no idea.." too funny.
Take care,
Dana
