No more cheap laugh's at my expense......

Notice any thing about my title? Yes, I have L's and P's now. And question marks and commas and all those other keys I was missing!! Saturday, my hubby and I went out to celebrate 6 years of marital bliss. We ate supper at Carrabas and went shopping at Good Will. Isn't that romantic? We were elbow deep in books when I started laughing and told Jon we really were just an old married couple now. We were shopping at Good Will as part of our anniversary outing and not because we had too, because we wanted too!!! That trip though landed us with a nice new (uh used) key board (that doesn't have milk stuck to the inside of some of the keys) for a whopping 10 bucks!

Now that I have all my alphabet back, I will try to post more frequently through out the week. TRY being the operative word here! I started feeling like I'd been run over by a truck Saturday night and just knew for sure I was coming down with the flu. Or worst, the piggy flu. I layed up in the bed all day yesterday while my mom and Jon took the kids to church that morning and then Jon took them back with him that night. I feel better today but went to the doctor any way since we are planning on going to the Good Hope Association in Mississippi this weekend. They did the flu swab on me and it came back negative. I do have a low grade fever so she said I probably have some type of 48 hour bug and to get lots of rest and drink plenty of fluids. Will do captain. At least the drinking plenty of fluids part any way. I'll get as much rest as two 2 year olds will allow. Which isn't much these days!!


A few afternoons last week Jon had to meet some people at the church to discuss some renovations that the church is going to be doing. So, he would come home after work and get one of the kids to take with him. James went the first day and this is what Audrey did pretty much the whole time they were gone: Lay up on the couch like a teenager and watch Popeye!The next day Jon took Audrey and James and I went to the store. He really enjoyed getting to ride in the seat the whole time we were there! I know it gets old always having to take turns with your little sister! He had a fit when he saw the pumpkins (or mumpkins as he calls them)nso I had to let him "touch" them. "Touch" is his newest thing to do. He has to "touch" everything. Guess that's better than licking! The last day, Jon took James again so it was just me and Ms. Audrey. I didn't have any thing to cook or clean or iron so we had some great one on one time together. They haven't had much of that that since there's always been two of them and it was really hard for Jon to come get one of them when they were real small and not walking. But the older they get, the more important it is for them to not only have one on one time with Jon and I but also to play by themselves. They are so used to always having a play mate around and it's rare that they go to separate parts of the house and play alone. Not that there is any thing wrong with that and I am sure the older they get they will WANT to play alone. Okay enough of that! Audrey Grace is really into playing with her dolls now and this is what I walked in the room to find the last afternoon of "alone time". She had lined all her dolls up and was sitting next to them, reading!

Aww! That's precious! Hannah LOVES Popeye. She thinks she is entitled to watch it every single night before bedtime. Hope you're feeling better!

I have to separate mine sometimes when they've had too much togetherness (if you get my drift), but the moment they're separated, it's "but he's my BEST friend!" They can be a mess!

Welcome back to the world of P's and L's. Must say I'll miss the deciphering a little bit...but, if it means you can post more, I'm in! So glad you have assistance when you are put to bed with something. And, so glad you and Jon have discovered where I have MY good times! Goodwill! Greatest store. Greatest finds there. And, sweet, SWEET way to spend an anniversary. When I visit my friend in Augusta, that's what we do with our day. They have a HUGE store. Love that Audrey plays dolls. The little dolls all lined up next to her. Children learn what they live. God bless you all.
