It's going to be a long day

I am so freakin tired, I am actually typing this with my eyes closed right now. They burn. Bad. Nolan was up coughing at 1am, and at 2 (when the cough syrup didn't seem to kick the coughs) I got him up and gave him a breathing treatment. He FREAKED, my poor buddy.

Anyhoo, it calmed the coughing a lot, but I was still pretty worried, so I was up listening to him until after 3am.

Me so tired. *yawn*

Not too much to report, am getting over my cold, and in typical fashion, I can always tell when I am nearing the end of a cold when I have to 'purge' the house of crap and clean like a maniac. When we got home from my parent's house today I had a raging headache that ibuprofen and aspirin had done nothering for. So I popped a vicodin (had taken the other stuff a few hours earlier) and started with the laundry first. Eventually scrubbed and sanitized both bathrooms, purged them of miscellaneous crap, got rid of a ton of stuff in Aaron's closet that he hasn't worn since I've known him and probably never will, and then weeded out the stuff he wanted, but doesn't wear often to put away into the dresser, cleaned the living room and made my lunch for tommorrow. By the time I was done I was dizzy and sick to my stomach... either from the vicodin or the smell of bleach radiating from the bathrooms. ahhh, bleach. ick.

anyhoo, I am happy to report that I am feeling better now and ready to call it a night.

catch ya later.

Finally. I've caught the crud. It's been a long time since I have been sick... so I guess I was due, but it sucks! I missed work yesterday (but managed to drag my sick self into school), but today... I am just too tired. I actually don't feel as awful, I am just exhausted, so I plan on laying low today and taking it easy.

I think I might try and get myself off the couch long enough to maybe make a batch of cookies with Nolan, I think he might like that.

anyhoo... here are some pictures and videos

Nothing to report. Busy as heck.

vroom! vroom!

I love

daddy and sethy

Heart to Heart
Nolan and his baby have a heart to heart

Into the mouth

Chew toy

Nolan looked at us and said "hat"
My kids are awesome.

Or as Nolan would say "aww-shumm!". Their awesome factor went up about 25% when they decided that it was time to play at 1:15 a.m. and proceeded to continue to run laps in their cribs, pretend they were jumping on trampolines and generally shrieking and laughing and chattering until 3:00 a.m. Awesome. I mean *yawn*.

Also, yesterday when we were at one of our Nephew's birthday parties, there was an elderly woman sitting on the couch and she was holding an empty plate as she had finished eating, and my kids spent entirely too much time standing at her feet staring (and if you're seth, REACHING) for said plate. NOT.EMBARASSING.AT.ALL. They wouldn't be swayed by distractions either. WTF, they never do that... she was kind and smiled and joked, but I was horrified. QUIT BEGGING!

So I am tired today... Aaron is probably beyond tired, I at least got to sleep in until 6, he had to still get up at a quarter to 5. Naps, we definitely need naps.

pretty boy

we have steps! Seth took two steps a few different times this morning at daycare. I set him down to sign him in, and stepped back when I was done and he took two steps toward me! His teacher and I were so excited, he did it a few more times, and she said she's going to encourage him to work on that even more.


My mom is the bomb. Seriously. I was having daycare issues over the upcoming Holidays (being a student I don't qualify for care while school is out, and it's out from 12/14 to 1/2. Aaron is taking the week of christmas off, so that left new year's eve and the week before christmas to fret about. I get a personal holiday at work, and since I am a 50% employee, I can split up the 8 hours over two days, so I'll be taking the thursday and friday off before christmas, and my mom has arranged it to watch the boys the monday, tuesday and wednesday before christmas as well as new years eve.

No time.

I have no time. And it sucks some serious dirt. I could blow off the workouts at night to have some time to catch up on my blogs and boards and such... but I'm starting to get compliments on my weightloss and that's the motivation I need.

so here are some pictures. As far as updates, assume the kids are fine (runny noses, but fine) and that Aaron and I are fine too... just tired.

mmm, donuts!
mmm, donuts!

Donut grin

mischevious grin
