Saturday Stumbles

Since I've been home this week with no responsibilities, I've had a ton of time to look for new blogs. I found lots. One that stood out to me was Makeover Momma.

I've always loved reading about beauty products. One of my favorite magazines is Lucky which is about shopping for clothes and beauty products. Since I've had some time to think, I've decided that I need to start putting some effort into me.
I've had a pretty craptacular year. I've had throat issues to the point where I haven't felt good in months. If I felt good, I was just too tired from not sleeping the night before. So, I would roll out of bed, put my hair in a ponytail and head to work.
I'm hoping that having my tonsills out will help me feel better eventually. I've saved Makeover Momma for the time when I have the energy to actually do something with myself. I haven't looked through the entire blog, there is tons of information, but what I did see I enjoyed. Alot. I owe myself the chance to feel good about me. I have a strong feeling that this site will be there for me when I need it. I think that could be a whole other
Overall, it's given me the jumpstart that I've been looking for and I can't wait to get started.

My Baby Comes Home Today!

I'm super excited. When my boyfriend gets home from work, we are going to get our son! He's been staying at my sister's house at night. She's been taking him to my Mom's daycare during the day while she works.
It's been a week of mixed emotions. While I've missed him sooo much, I've kindof enjoyed this week. Is that bad of me? I know he's in good hands and my sister has been giving me little updates. It was def. nice to do what I wanted during the day. Well, not exactly what I wanted since I can't drive..LOL. As the afternoon goes on, I'm getting so pumped to go and pick him up. I just wish I wasn't on pain meds right now otherwise I would go and get him this instance.
I'm still off of work most of next week. So, I'm going to use that time to make up for the lost time with Jack.
My sister did tell me this today. As she was packing his bags last night, he asked her if he was going home. She told him that Mommy would come get him tomorrow night and that Mommy was feeling all better. Then, my sweet little baby boy says, "I love her." AAAAWWWWEEEE. I'm tearing up just thinking about it. I was so worried that he would forget me. But he hasn't. Only like 3 more hours til I can see him!!!!

Things I Love Thursdays

Today, I'm loving old keyboards.
My laptop recently got a virus. So, after spending all night last night trying to fix it, I've given up. I tried to reinstall Vista like I've done in the past. Well, it worked, but it's so basic that I can't even get online.
That brings me to an old laptop. The laptop works great, but all the buttons are torn off thanks to my toddler.
So, I took an old keyboard from my desktop that recently took a dump. Now, I'm able to post and actually get things done online! I'm so happy that for one I did listen to my boyfriend and not get rid of something that is broken. I could write a whole other post on that though.

Visit The Diaper Diaries for more Things I Love Thursdays.


My other laptop has a major virus. I'm currently typing on one that is missing half the buttons thanks to my hopefully i can get things fixed soon. Might be awhile before I post again. Wish me luck!!!!

Tackle It Tuesday: Tonsillectomy

On April 23rd, I had a tonsillectomy. I'm actually not doing to bad. Or at least that's what I think before the drugs wear off...LOL.
The weirdest part is that I have nothing to do. I don't remember the last time I had no work or no child to take care of. I'm off work for two weeks and my sister has Jack. I slept until 9:30 this morning and was back in bed by noon.

Luckily, I have a large circle of support. First, there are my parents. My Dad picked me up from the surgery center and brought me to their home for the weekend. It was like I was 9 yrs old and sick. It was one of the best feelings. They were always checking on me and asking if I needed anything. It was just really nice to have that again, esp since I've been out of the house for 10 years.
Then there is my sister. She has Jack and will have him until Friday. The minute I told her about the surgery, she offered to take him. I didn't even have to think about what I was going to do. She already has 3 kids of her own who are 5 and under....bless her.
There is also my boyfriend. He was home with our son alone for the entire weekend for the first time, EVER. I have to admit, I was a little worried about how things would go down. But, everytime I got a report, they were having lots of fun and everything was good.
Finally, there is Jessica. She took me to the surgery center bright and early. This is after one of her children were up all night. Then today, she stopped by the pharmacy to pick up the rest of my meds even though she had a sick little boy in the car. She didn't even think twice about it.

So, overall it hasn't been to horrible. But I've heard the worst is to come. I'm not missing food all that much and maybe I will get the hang of this whole doing nothing thing.
