Let's have no more husbands getting arrested for at least a couple of months? Everyone?
I'm still so sick. Up in the middle of the night now because I'm waking up every hour, which is actually quite an improvement to how often I was going in the daytime, but still.... I'm actually getting worried that I won't be able to go on our vacation to Jackson Hole in a week. I couldn't leave the house long enough to bring the trash in from the curb yesterday. I'm supposed to cook a birthday dinner for my mom on Friday and that's probably not going to happen. I can picture food burning on the stove as I have to rush away.
Dh called yesterday and gently chided me: "I told you not to break anything while I was gone, and that includes YOU."
I feel badly for the babies, who aren't getting their normal playground expeditions and instead are alternating between hanging out on the couch reading a lot of books with me and then sudden bursts of tv-watching.
Everyone asks if the babies can keep each other entertained. They are just starting to get to the point where they chase each other around and giggle with each other sometimes, but half the time I have to rescue them from each other too, when they're fighting over a toy or Claire is trying to sit on the same toy that Ronin is riding.
LOL Alisha, It's edited because I quoted you wrong. I quoted when you were talking to someone else instead of when you were talking to me, so I had to edit or everyone would realize JUST how crazy I am!

I confess.. WHO WANTS TO HEAR SOME GREAT NEWS!?>!?
My caseworker FINALLY called me back, and guess what!? She said both mine and Audri's cases are active - meaning we are approved. The fax I sent went to the mail room, and she didn't get it till the day after my deadline, which is why a denial letter was sent. Then she got my fax, and went into the computer changed my status, and sent out our cards. I think sBIL just hasn't checked the mail!!
This means 1) I can go and make my appointment today and not worry about having to do a back pay. 2) I can make a new WIC appointment and not have to worry about our "income" since I now have medicaid. Until we had that, we had to take in paystubs from the people we are living with, and FIL and sMIL both make too much for us to be approved!

That's awesome news Ashley!
I confess af arrived this morning. Its about effing time. Now I have to figure out how to get through a busy day with cramps and exhaustion.
I confess I have a concert to go to tonight that I got free tickets to and I don't really want to go. Any other night I would have reveled in the night out but not today..
I confess I'm nervous about Aidan's dentist appointment this morning. Nothing like your kid having a cavity to make you feel like an awesome parent...
I confess I'm not looking as forward to our trip this weekend as I should be.
We haven't been to my parent's house since mid January and I know my mother is just dying to see Liam. (Parents = mother and grandmother). While I love my grandmother dearly, and for many years felt closer to her than to mother, she's a total PITA since she had a stroke. She's a stubborn ole bag who refuses to do any kind of therapy exercises and is mostly wheelchair bound because of it. She and mother fight like an old married couple and sometimes they're hard to be around.
Add to that fact I've got a crappy spring/summer cold (courtesy of one of the daycare kids that I got through Liam - he's almost well, at least), and that sleeping is going to be a challenge. Mother bought a new bed for what used to be my room, now a guest room, and it's hard as a rock and hurts my back and Tred's. A few visits ago we discovered HER bed (which she doesn't sleep in because she sleeps on Gram's bed and Gram sleeps in the lift-chair recliner) is nice and soft and squishy and feels great, but is only a full size - and we're used to a king.
We'll be there Friday night through Monday noonish. I know I'm probably not going to get a lot of sleep, and I feel guilty for not looking forward to the visit more.
