1000 words thought for Thursday

So you know when you are in the check out line at Wal-Mart really needing to hurry as you need to be somewhere in 20 minutes on the other side of town.....yes that is 20 minutes, doing good, should be fine with making it there on time. NOPE.....did not happen. Yes it was 20 minutes of the guy checking us out making funny faces at Haley (which is fine with me if I was not in a hurry), talking about this and that, going one at a time as slow as he can (when you have 20 packets of Kool-Aid), asking if we needed bath towels (as if he needs to know why we are purchasing bath towels), asking what Haley did to deserve a Barbie horse and carriage (thanks to Grandma Sue for the B-day gift card), wondering if we need that box bagged (heck no just get us checked out). UGH........FINALLY getting to the grand total and he screwed up the cash total that Chris gave him (thanks honey for paying)......mind you this has already been a 15 minute check out that should have been at tops maybe 5-7 minutes. He cannot figure out what he did, would not let us figure it out, called for another associate to help him figure it out........go figure just put in the other $100 that he did not put in and magic he gets the change he owes us. Meanwhile Rachel is waiting at church for us and frusturated that she is the last I blame her no, was it our fault, not this the lesson learned tonight is not to go through the checkout line with the young, babbling man that can give a care less when you tell him at the beginning of this process that you have to be somewhere and would really like him to get us checked out.....Have a wonderful day!

I'm still here.....

Just a quick post to let everyone know I have not fallen off the earth. We have been busy with this and that and then just plain lazy...if you know what I mean. This weather is enough to drain anybody.

I did major house cleaning this weekend with getting rid of toys and rearranging and trashing stuff that has not been seen for a while. Maybe some day my house will be more organized, but until then I can say I have been trying. Everyone have a wonderful Tuesday!

Well tomorrow marks another milestone in our life. Haley turns 5! Yes another birthday. We have to love December and January......seriously we need to do half birthdays for the girls so they can at least enjoy their gifts and not get them all at the same time......we might eventually do that.......I have tried and it just does not happen.

Anyway this time 5 years ago I was one miserable person. I remember feeling like I had wet myself the night before and did not say anything to anyone about it...who wants to tell that you wet yourself. Well my doctor called that night and we talked and she told me I had probably better be checked out and she would meet me at the hospital. I arrived at 8 a.m. on January 13, 2004 like I was suppose to (leaving Chris at work telling him I would call if I needed him). As I parked my car, I spotted Andrea's car there too....yep we were in the hospital at the same time....kind of neat I thought.

The doctor checked me, after the nurse told her that I could not have the baby as they were full, me taking one of the last open beds. Well my first bag of water had already broke on it own and the second bag was still intact...yes I had two bags of water. I called Chris and the rest was history!

I asked the nurse to let Andrea know that I was there and she stated that she could not for policy reasons, but my doctor was also Andrea's and she so kindly let Andrea know I was there. Andrea and I were in the two delivery rooms at the same time......who will go first was the question. Andrea visited me for a little while, until she decided she might toss her cookies...

Needless to say Emma arrived a little over an hour before Haley. My sister and mom reported on Emma's weight as she was weighed right outside my room. Well it was Haley's turn to arrive in this wide world weighing in at 9 lbs 5 oz. Yes I went from a 6 lbs 6 oz baby to this 3 month old baby (it seemed like it to me).

Oh how the time flies when you are having so much fun! Haley is definately a joy, I really think she is going to be the class clown as much as she goofs around. I hope not, but we will see. She is so excited about starting kindergarten this fall.

This morning she stated as Rachel was getting on the bus "Am I ever going to be able to ride that bus Mom?" I stated "Yes, soon enough you will be riding that bus." I do not know if I am ready for it, but I know she is!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
