Hey ladies! I feel so out of touch with everyone! How are all of you? Anything new or exciting going on? We are just trying to adjust to being home together. I'm very happy to finally be home with all of my boys, but we all have to get used to each other again. Torey definitely isn't used to how noisey our house is but he is doing the best he can. I still can't leave him alone, so there is no running to the store or gym or even going for a jog by myself. But these things will come in time. Until then I am enjoying my family time and soaking it all in.

Anyone have plans for mothers day? I'm not sure what we are doing yet. I got my mom a charm for her bracelet and sent flowers to her, my sister, and DH's mom. I bought myself a new charm too since DH can't go shopping.

Hope things are getting a little better each day. Brain injuries have a tough recovery. I bet it is a little hard as he gets his physical strength back to remember he still has a lot to work on. Maybe tougher for others than you.

We have a fun weekend planned. Saturday morning my hubby is running a race in Fort Worth. My brother lives there so we are going to drive over and cheer the runners on. Then we will get some breakfast with friends out there.

Saturday afternoon my sister is arriving with her two kids from Michigan. They will be staying for an indefinite amount of time. She wants to go back to school/get a job. She has been isolated up there. This is stressing my parents out a bit.

Sunday, we are going on a tour of mansions (a friend had tkts she did not want to waste). Then to the art museum for a mother's day brunch. I wanted to go to the Gospel Brunch at the House of Blues but it was sold out. Sunday afternoon we have soccer lessons for Luke. Then we usually get dinner with one of the other families who go to soccer practice.

It is going to be a busy weekend. Not sure where we will fit in laundry and cleaning the house in, but we have to.

I'm so glad you guys are home as a family now. Hopefully Torey adjusts quickly. Does he still do therapy as an out patient?

We don't really have any plans for Mother's Day except to make chicken pot pie and a chocolate peanut butter pie Biggrin We started a diet this past Monday and our 'cheat' day is Sunday.

I need to be on a diet! I have eaten so badly over the last couple months and haven't been able to workout much. I should be able to get back to the gym next week though. Hopefully anyway.

Torey is doing really good and he will be doing outpatient therapy for 3.5 hours 2 days a week. Each day is a little better than the last and when I think of how things could be right now I an very grateful for what I have!!

Tomorrow we are going to a crawfish boil and then I'm not sure what we are gonna do Sunday. It should be s good weekend though!

I'm so glad your all home together again.

Nothing new to report here except that Alexander is now fully potty trained and it did only take 3 days. Dry day and night and no poop accidents. I'm totally :eek: that it just happened so quick. I knew he was ready but I though it would take a while

WTG Alexander!!!
Glad your all home together Jenny!!! (((HUGS)))

Not too much to report here. Emma is sick yet again :roll: This child always has some sort of cold, plus she is getting in her two bottom molars so its not fun! Jakey is doing great at potty training. Though he's still very resistant to underwear - he'd rather be naked from the waist down.
