I'm thankful it's Thursday. Had my first anatomy test last night. All multiple choice so I'm hoping grades will be up soon. I have an online test in my other class this weekend that I really need to do some studying for. Distracting me at work - planning a family vacation! Thinking of a Disney cruise from San Juan to Port Canaveral in May. Time off from school and work sounds amazeballs.
I got a late start today because I overslept my alarm, with the result that it feels like the day has gotten completely away from me. It's already 2:00 and I still have so much to do!
We are having a party this weekend so I have lots of cleaning and cooking in mind for after work. We'll see how much of it actually gets done. My back has been bothering me a lot more now if I try to do too much. Honestly my house could be in worse shape right now so if I don't get it sparkling perfect before Saturday, I'll survive.
I'll have to read this when I get home later. I cry so easily right now! And I'm so hormonal that even tearing up at something sends me over the edge into sobbing. DNW to be the crazy crying pregnant lady at work lol
So... I had this huge rant typed out about how my cousin's wedding is in less than a month and my parents and I didn't get invited. It helped me get it out and you didn't have to read it! I'm still miffed, but nothing I can do. Went to story time this morning. Had to leave. She kept touching things that were "no touchie". We went to the earlier one, which has a ton more kids and I'm wondering if that plays into it. There were a couple kids who were much older and were attention seekers. (Clearly staring at mom while doing bad thing.) I think I'm going to make chocolate chip cookies this afternoon. I've been in a baking mood lately, I don't know what's gotten into me. First, I'm going to the store for apples. I have to find somewhere to go apple picking still!
I'm thankful I get to stay home with my beautiful LO and watch her grow and thrive every day.
^^^This is the same for me, too. I miss teaching a lot, especially this time of year, and I worry about my future career. But I'm so grateful for this time with lo.
Also thankful for the cooler temperatures. It feels really nice out. And I'm still in shock after receiving last month's electric bill in the mail. Yikes. Hopefully our air conditioning days are behind us.
Thankful for getting to go to the zoo with this little nut today. We went with my mom and had a lot of fun.

raven I'm dying waiting for our apple orchard to start picking. I want my apples, dammit!! littlelion stories about sick kids just kill me now. laceysbryan yay for vacation! kcrus- from yesterday's thread, I'm so sorry for your loss. Big hugs to you. sgio7485 way to go Leo! That's awesome!
Oh, and the Christmas question. I know I'm late, I'm sorry, but I still wanted to answer. I've already gotten her Duplos (toddler legos, great deal) and jammies (will post picture soon, from Breckenridge). I've been in talks with DH and all grandparents about what's on the list. She loves being pulled in her wagon, but it was FIL's when he was a kid, so a bit rusty. I want to get her a custom built one from the website. There have also been talks of the push cart/trike thing, same as ourcrazynavylife.

raven those pjs are so cute! and +1 on being able to stay home ashlantic I can't wait to take LO to the zoo. It needs to get about 15 degrees cooler for us to go. laceysbryan you taking me on the cruise right? ourcrazynavylife GL while your H is on duty! Solo is always hard. dashook GL getting ready for the party. littlelion I'm not sure if I can read that story right now lol
I'm thankful for my H and the sweet ways he shows me he loves me when I least expect it. I came out to my car today and he had left me a sweet, tender card because he saw me tear up when I was leaving the kids this morning. My nursing mentor that passed yesterday was in one of the kindest, most loving marriages I've ever seen- I can only hope we can be half of that as time goes on. It felt like a good way to honor her, by honoring my own marriage; with him acknowledging me, my own struggles, and how he's proud of me and me acknowledging his efforts after the rough time we've had lately- I felt like we were honoring her well. I guess I'm super cheesy at 2 am!
