I have 2 weeks leave in a month, which if things keep going like this will be much needed, but I hate others having to do my work when we are understaffed and the amount of work that is there when I come back, it's hardly worth having time off.

I know what you mean about it not always being worth taking time off. I always hated how much work was waiting for me when I got back! I may have gotten a few days away, but then I come back and had to work longer hours and be under more stress. Sad

I lmao when your DH turned around and Aiden poked his head around him like "what about me?" so cute lol.

i hate people taking over my desk when i go on vacation. they always do it wrong and it's more work when I come back. I always get blamed for any mistakes too. Even when i was off at the beginning of my maternity leave it killed me that someone was taking over. i kept logging in from home. ya, i am crazy

Yay! My house is clean! DH is still on the computer ... grumble grumble grumble ...

He at least recognized that its unfair for him to be working every waking moment. Sure, he's making more money but its not worth it. I cannot keep this house running AND do my own schoolwork. Its going to be madness if this keeps up when classes start again a week from now. He says he's going to tell his boss he can't continue working like this. He says he'll quit if his boss doesn't agree to cutting back. Now, that's not exactly doable seeing as we kinda need his income. Ergh! I just wish he'd taken a fellowship instead of agreeing to do this work for extra pay!

I'm really wanting to pull a beer out of the fridge. My back is killing me and I just want to put my feet up and relax before I have to cook dinner. Its only 4pm but if I pretend that we're on Mountain time instead of Pacific time (because Arizona flip flops), then its 5pm! Woot!

Jackie, that video is too cute! I love the look in Aiden's eye as he smacks his Dad for more. He's like, "Fool! You best be giving me that yogurt!" He's such a little food monster.

Cute! I really should be working on Aiden's picture baby book. I got through the first 4 months at least so far.

DH and I are arguing over where he should put each plane on his wish list. He has to rank every single plane the Air Force has. 4.5 weeks till we have (some) answers!

I don't even want to think about how many photos I've taken! I take on average 200 a month just with our 2 digital cameras, not including our phone cameras!

Guess I should add that I'm not a photographer in the least bit. I figure if I take 200 pictures, 5 might be descent. Lol

I'm back.

It's been a very long day. We left this morning to go to church in my IL's town and watch MIL get baptised. I videotaped it for her. Then we went back to their house where MIL had a very yummy lunch cooking, and while she was getting the final touches taken care of for lunch I took Lyla to the guest room to 'change her diaper' ;). I changed her into her onsie and then stayed behind while DH went out to start videotaping and setting up the scene. And then I came out with Lyla. I handed her to MIL who didn't immediately read the shirt, but once she did she screamed. I'll post the video later.

Unfortunately, this afternoon MIL suddenly started feeling poorly and was complaining about her heart racing. DH and FIL took her to the ER while I stayed behind with Lyla. Her heart rate was 140 (she's 68 years old). They are going to keep her overnight and then put her on medication to regulate her heartrate. We're going back to see her again tomorrow.

I always take a ton of pictures with the intention of deleting some, but then I never do. I keep them all, unless they are of me. I don't have a hard time deleting pictures of me.

Anna, I hope your MIL is OK! I can't wait to see the video.

I don't even know how many pics we have of Teagan. We haven't been so great about taking pics in the last month or so though.

I'm making BBQ seitan casserole. Nom. Back to the grind tomorrow after nearly a week home with Teagan. At least its a 4 day week and we leave for San Diego on Friday! Then classes start the following week Sad

Glad that the "revel" went well! That really stinks about her having to go to the ER though. Sad Hope she's doing better.

Aiden is just now going to bed. *yawn*

He bought me a birthday present (1week late) so I dont even count it.. and wrote out a card apologizing.. But after we started talking about it he was trying to justify his actions which I told him would piss me off even more. So he is trying to drop it but I told him I dont know how long it will take for me to get over it..

Birthday present included..

Box of chocolate
2 bottles of red wine! lol

I said what are you trying to get me liquored up but at least he got the type of wine i like.

I've worked out how to get Ronin to stand better, give him a spoon to hold in one hand and hand him some food so he has to let go to grab it with the other hand. He stood unassisted for nearly 20 seconds with this method. He then realised what he did and there was no getting him standing alone at all because he thinks he is so clever and gets too excited.

I now have 16 cloth wipes, and somewhere a bunch of small washcloths I put aside to use as cloth wipes which I can't find now.

Yup I'm really bored, hubby is still at work, Ronin is asleep and I'm bored and lonely.

Now I am just posting for something to do. I am wondering how much to bend the truth at Ronin's 12 month appt when they ask if he is sleeping through the night. They were less than complimetary about that fact at 7 and 8 months so at 12 months it will be worse. Taking a guess on his weight if he keeps his current pattern up they shouldn't complain too much, and I am trying to find where I packed hubby's growth charts so I can take both our charts from when we were kids to show it's genetic. Hubby's is more accurate though because I was formula fed.

When I was young I never needed anyone
And making love was just for fun
Those days are gone
Living alone I think of all the friends I’ve known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobody’s home
All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself anymore
Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure
All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself anymore
When I was young I never needed anyone
And making love was just for fun
Those days are gone
All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself anymore

Maybe I should go and read my trashy novel, or my not so trashy but I'm sure will shock me book. Much more constructive than googling things to plan my next baby

Ronin's new trick, climbing up the slide


He managed to get all the way up once and three quarters of the way up the second time. He needs to work on some more useful skills like walking rather than party tricks like climbing slides, but he just wants to find the things to impress the girls.

ok, so I didn't wanna start a thread for this.. but I figured most of ya'll are busy on here anyway Smile Ya'll sure do talk alot. I wish we had internet all the time so I could talk more. My dad's internet sucks and is usually out so I almost always post from my cell phone which is a pain in my butt.

We are going to look at a townhome across the street from our apartment complex. The apartment mangers are STILL screwing us around. I am not sure if I told ya'll about how they told me it would be another two weeks, but then he would be out. Well they called me last week and it is gonna be another week!!! UGH! I can deal with another week, but I do not wanna keep doing this until next year, ykwim? so come the end of the week, we are gonna call, if he is moving GREAT but if not we are gonna start to look elsewhere.
I just can not believe they are not making him leave, he gave his 30 days notice months ago. but I am super excited to look at this town house. Is it rude of us to go look without the 100% of intentions to rent there? I mean, I would have to look at it anyway and think about it and we will be getting back with them within the week.
Same price for rent but tons more room plus an extra half bath. I might need to go look and see what school trevor will go to....but we will have to pay bills here, which isn't a big deal but still alot more expensive than the apartment. I still would rather live at the apartment but I do not wanna wait 3 more months..
ok this is long, sorry. lol
