thankful that it IS thursday (cause tomorrow is friday!)

yesterday...this



came in the mail. i have already finished it. actually, i started it yesterday afternoon around 3. had to stop to tend to kids here and there and do the supper thing. but i was done by 10. it was a nice escape. i bawled like a baby during all the NICU stuff. (ACs 1st birthday post aught to be a doozie!) and speaking of the angel...


she is a whopper kids!! she is just shy of 18 lbs (so they rounded her up) and she is 26 inches. (and did i mention the 2 teeth?? i did??) yeah, i know some of you have 1 year olds that aren't that big. but i guess that's just how we do things around here. for comparison, she out weighs seth (at 4 months) by 2 lbs and is the same in length and out weighs luke by 1 lb and is an inch longer. somebody tell me girls get to a point where they slow down!!

and i know it's thankful thursday, but i don't have a list today. i'm overworked

and underpaid

and i'm ready for saturday when i get to go to fun stores...ALONE like marshall's and tj maxx and kohls and michaels and the fabric store. and i'm getting my hair shaped up. i am nearly giddy!! by the way, that was my october calendar (compliments of my sister in law--who i love like a full sister--Sherri). what you may not be able to see is that there is something going on all month. every tuesday and thursday is preschool (which is 20 miles one way). we have several doctors appointments and various other things (and i added one more today for the boys to have spend the night company on the 24th. and i'm sure there will be a trunk or treat in there somewhere.)

maybe i should sneak in a pedicure and lunch alone. what will i do with all the silence.

I've got to get the book. How was it? Did Kate talk about her parents?? The voyueristic side of me needs to know that whole story, but I have a feeling that I won't. I HEART the Gossleins!!

well, they are talked about in as much as they helped out a lot before and after the 6 were born, but it doesn't address the relationship now. in the last Q&A they just say that jon's mom lives farther away and other family members just don't choose to be involved in what they are doing now (the TV show).

it was pretty good, just tells their journey over the first 2 years in more detail than the show. it also gives a little more insight to the volunteers they had and the help they got while jobless. otherwise, nothing new. but i'm still glad i read it. i enjoyed it.
