There is absolutely no way it has been a week already! I guess it was one of the busiest weeks of the year for everyone but I should still take time to say "HEY!" Christmas was great. My kids have not put down the Wii since they opened it! I've decided that it is great exercize. REALLY. So I am totally ok with them playing that most of the day than them laying around watching TV. Christmas break is almost over. Only a couple of days left. It seems to me like it gets shorter. Weren't we out for like 2 weeks? Now they are only out for a little more than a week. I am going to go back to work on Monday. I can't hardly believe it. My doctor told me he thinks I need to chill out a little longer but I am only going back 1/2 days next week so it shouldn't be too bad. Plus I work for great people and if I am tired they understand. So for Christmas Rick bought me a printer that I had been wanting. It is a KODAK all in one that matches my camera. It prints great pics. So much cheaper than going to walmart everytime. Also, my parents (are you setting down) bought our family (me, Rick, Chase, Tori, Nate, my mom and dad and my brother and his wife) a trip to Disney World. HELLO!!! Disney World. Wake up people. If you have been sleeping through my blog now is the time to pay attention. I am always looking at the Disney section at Scrapfunattic admiring how cute it is and wishing I had a reason to buy it! Now I do! And that is one of the first things I thought of! Isn't that awful?? That's the scrapper in me! I hope you are all doing well! Hugs and Misses.....

I'm tellin' ya as Christmas gets closer the days go quicker. I'm sure it's because I am NOT done Christmas shopping yet! ANYWAY...I have to go back to the doctor today for my, "Oh your healing nicely, Amy!" Speech where I am going to turn around and say, "Really, cause it sure don't feel like it!!!!!" I picked up a Wii on Tuesday. Super excited about that because that helped sort of finish our Christmas. Most of our presents were based on us finding that stupid thing. Not a lot else going on here. However it will start getting crazy starting tomorrow. It's gonna go something like this:
Friday: Tori's Christmas party at school, haircuts at 4:30 for me, Chase & Nate and then Christmas with Rick's parents starting at 6:00
Saturday: Not quite sure yet
Sunday: The Christmas play at Church that morning
Monday: Kiddos out of school. I'm sure after Rick goes to work I will go hang out at mom and dads and probably make goodies to eat
So needless to say it's gonna get busy. I'm sure it is for you guys too! Chat later.....

This ones for you Renay nay

Ok...this is a layout that I called poor Renee and said...I need paper, just pick it out and I'll be by to pick it up! I knew she would do a great job and it was a layout I really wanted to ROCK because it is of our late Izzy! I am so proud because I am actually getting caught up on 2007! It was and will remain one of my New Years Resolutions to stay caught up (as much as possible) on scrapbooking. I think the only way this has been possible is because I have been home this month. I am going to try and go shopping with my mom, aunt and gma tomorrow. Hopefully I will survive! Ya' never know. I am definantely taking the narcotics along. I may be passed out in the back of the van within an hour but I'm going! Friday night ( I know i am going in reverse order) I was able to get out of the house for awhile and hang out with friends. It was so nice. I was definantely sore by the time I got home but it was so worth it. I laughed so hard (that probably helped strengthen my stomach muscles). It was nice to be able to leave the house for awhile. I have been so cooped up and I really needed a break from my kiddos. I hate to say that but it's like Summer says, "A break helps you to be a better mother!" Or something like that. But thank you so much to those of you who were there (you know who you are) not only for the good times but for making me feel missed. God I hope this hormone thing is NOT turning me into mushy!!! :)~ PUKE!!! HEE HEE!!

I'm Up

But this time not by choice! Tori came and crawled in the bed with me at 1:30 bcuz she was cold and couldn't sleep and then Nate at 3:00! I CAN'T sleep between people at night! I need to be alone or on the edge. I am not a closterphobic person just not a sleep between people person. So with their wiggilyness I'm up! Hopefully reading on the internet and being awake for a while will make me sleepy and I can go back to bed. In Tori's room. Not mine! A couple of things planned this weekend. Hope that they will be fun. I am sending out my Christmas Cards today. They are pic cards to family. I will get that picture on here soon! Not a whole lot else going on! Other than I am starving. What is a good snack food at 3:34 AM and that won't be loud and wake everyone up?

I am so tired of this I can't sleep crap it is driving me crazy. When I was little I used to be up almost all night, too! My mom asked me if I had my days and nights mixed up again! I so wish that was the reason and not STRESS! What makes it worse is that I am in this house all day with not alot to do so I just set and think. Last night I didn't even go to bed until 3:30AM and here it is I've been up since 2:00 and its 3:40! Naturally I will be up by 7:00 to get Tori ready for school. I am hoping this weekend with family and friends will help. I guess I have been getting caught up on my scrapbooking though. That has been the ONLY good thing about being home the month of December. That and not having to be out in the cold. I hope to post some pictures later today!

Bah Humbug

OK...It is officially 7:44pm and the Ozzy/Rob Zombie concert is officially under way. It started at 7:30pm. I am more than bummed that I am NOT there! If I had known that it was this close to my surgery date I would have scheduled around it! You think I am kidding? NO! Yes...I am a hard rocker fan! I will never get this opportunity again. God knows he'll be dead before he makes it this way again. Anyway...It has been a long couple of 2 days. I am starting to take back that bordum thing that I said a couple of days ago. I made a cake for Summer's Aweso{me} class today for a little suprise Happy Birthday for her today. Here is what it looks like! I am obviously rusty and hope that it tasted better than it looked.

Oh well I am totally rambling because I was waiting for my pics to upload to snapfish so that I could order Christmas Cards. Have a fantabulous weekend!

I think I am Bored!

I know...I can't believe that I said it either but I think I am getting bored. I have only been home 6 days but I am not a sit still kinda girl! I know there isn't a lot that I can do but come on! I have watched more boob tube in the last 3 days than I have all year. Speaking of just that I finally got to watch Hairspray and I wasn't as excited as I thought I would be. First and foremost John Travolta is my all time fav actor. There can't be a bad movie if he has a part in it at all. But Hairspray I wasn't excited about. I wish I would have saved my $20 and waited for it to come out on HBO or something. I have been going through Scrap Book Mags (old ones) and even that is not tootin' my horn. So I think we are going to try and leave the house for a little bit tomorrow! I probably won't last anytime at all but hopefully it will get me out of this funk. Rick works tomorrow night and REALLY goes back to work on Saturday and honestly I am really dreading it! He is my safety net. I am hoping to actually scrapbook tonight. Maybe I can get some pics taken and posted in the next day or so! Later Gators!!!

I will Survive!!!

I'm not exactly sure that that statement is true but I am definantely trying!!! Surgery went ok! There was alot more to do in "there" once my doctor had me opened up that he was so not planning on! My Endometriosis had really taken over and I had lots of problems. I couldn't have done this at a better time. Because of that reason I am extremely sore! Can't express how sore. I came home from the hospital on Friday Afternoon. Saturday poor Izzy died. Excuse me..."PAST AWAY!" Tori says she past away, not died. Ya' know like a person. At first she was so bummed. She even wrote a ulogy (sp) for it and everything. Saying how she was such a bad mother because she probably didn't change her water enough. DRAMA! So out to the backyard she went and I haven't heard another word about it! Saturday night I started really not feeling good and by Sunday it was so bad that I had to go back to the ER about 5:00pm for complications. Lets just say lots of medicine later and throwing up and other things you so don't want to know about I am finally up and moving and really feeling my hurt gut! I got up yesterday morning and got the kids around for school, got in the shower to get ready to go to the doctor. Went to the doctor to have my staples removed and then had lunch with my family on the way home. Got home and hit the bed about 1:00 and slept until almost 4:30! Whew. That was so much for me! I am feeling so "funny" and I am having a hard time telling where it is coming from. I am wearing a patch and had to change it yesterday! It is a new kind and I can't tell if some of my "sicky" feeling is from it or not! It has been really nice being able to lay around with the family. Watch the kids play. Be here when Chase & Tori come home from school. Eat dinner together as a family! Something we NEVER get to do because Rick works nights. RICK- that is a whole other story. I honestly could not survive with out my husband. He is not like most husbands. He is the kind that will never leave my side and can't stand to see me hurt. He is there at my beck and call and making sure that everything is taken care of! Fixing dinner, getting the kids to school, not letting me lift a finger! Giving me medicine the works. You name it, he has done it and would never say a word about it! He took off last week and this week to stay with me and help me get on my feet. I am sure that he is so ready to go back to work. He is truely my everything. I am so lucky. My kids have even been the same way. Chase and Tori picking up everything, asking me if they can get me anything. Giving me EXTRA hugs and kisses. They are unbelievable. I am really missing the little things. Like picking up Natey and hugging everyone extra tight. I also couldn't have done anything without my parents. Keeping my kids last week while I was in the hospital and being there for whatever was needed. I have been reading all of your blogs and I miss you guys bunches. I probably won't get to blog every day like I usually do. I will try. But please keep checking in with me. Thank you all of you for your comments, cards, emails, flowers, thoughts and prayers. I really couldn't have done it with out all of you! Until then.....
