I ROCK... that's right... I said it...


Yep - I have had a GREAT day...

I Rock... even Corinna says so... so - ya know - it must be true!? LOL! Anyway - we had a rough night last night... my little one could not sleep... had a headache and a tummy ache and was just wide (I mean WIDE) awake... I could see her brain working overtime - but she was not wanting to talk about what was worrying her or where her thoughts were going... I am guessing that after an evening of playing at a friends house for his birthday party - she was once again reminded that she will have NO Classes with these friends. Up until last night - she literally knew NO ONE in her "Pack" Anyway - I am thinking that may have been what was causing her distress... Anyway - what that meant for me - the Mom... AND the Light Sleeper... was literally every 30 - 40 minutes - I got up - out of bed... and went down the hall to check on her... to sit with her - to pray - to get her a drink... whatever was needed... by about the eleven-teenth time I was fighting being cranky with her... but I managed to not let it show... I finally fell completely asleep at about 5a.m. However, she never actually did fall asleep - and so by 6 a.m. she was talking in complete sentences to me... wide awake and wanting to know when I was getting up?!!? (... remember - no sleep and no coffee yet - and STILL I didn't think or say any bad words! LOL!)

Anyway - finally she crawled into bed with me at 6:45... while she went on to fall asleep soundly - I realized that once again - my little one has stolen the covers, and the pillows, and is pushing me off my own bed?! So... I arise! I had a meeting at 9a.m. and ended up leaving her home to sleep... my Mom lives right next door and she was planning on checking in on her for me in a bit... I had a good meeting and then called home to let my daughter know I would be swinging by the grocery store unless she needed me... nope - she was fine... feeling rested and all better too (praise the LORD!)... So - I grocery shopped in record time - all the while shopping for my Honey - as I am leaving town tomorrow and won't return until Saturday or so... I bought him all his fav's and came home - put things away... managed to do some laundry, clean the house, do the dishes, fix lunch and listen to one of our Dr. Dobson CD's with KK... then we packed our bags, and I made up my Card Kit Cards... made 5 cards and I must say they are super cute... AND I made a Baby Shower Gift Frame and matching card as well!

Whew?! So - my DH is wondering why - since I am leaving for DAYS tomorrow - I am typing on here tonight?! LOL!? So... uh ... I guess I should get going... Tomorrow I am out of here... we are so looking forward to this trip - for ALL the reasons... the shopping, the swimming, the talking, the laughing, the food... and seeing my family as well...

OK - so - I even took PICTURES of my creations today - AND Uploaded them... but Blogger won't upload my pix again!? What is up with that?! I will try to add them tomorrow maybe - if I remember?! Anyway, I will be back and update when I can... until then... ROCK ON!

Corinna,

Hmmm - I was WONDERING how someone so sweet and kind and nice could be Darcie's friend... so - you DO have a mean streak in ya... LOL! NOW it all makes since!!! LOL!

Yeah - Darcie - you would think with THREE kids she would slow down a bit... but no - not gonna happen - especially if there is FREE STUFF to be had!!!

Besides... it's not driving me crazy to not be caught up...um.... no - it's not at all... I have other things I can do... so I'm fine... I'm not in a hurry or anything... it's FINE... really?! LOL?! (Of course - NOW - when I return from my trip I will have THOSE pictures to scrap and then my universe may spin off its axis because things will be OUT ...(can't ....breathe...) OF.... (Gasping for air....) ORDER!?!??!?!

Sigh....
