Have you ever had one of those days where you wake up in a great mood and you decide right then and there that today is going to be an AWESOME day no matter what?

Today was one of those days for me. I was in the best mood this morning and then I got to work. *Before I begin let me just say this: I am thankful that I have a good job and I like most everyone I work with.* Why must everyone pass everything off to someone else? Why do I have to do everyone else's job? What are they doing? When do I have time to do my job? Why does everyone have to be in a pissy mood? UGH!!!!! That's all I have to say about that. My AWESOME day has been ruined and my mood is less than okay at this point, but I will make it my goal to leave it at work when I leave and my AWESOME day will pick back up when I pick up Drew from school and I am greeted with "MOMMY" as he runs into my arms for the best and biggest hug/kiss ever!

Thanks for letting me "vent" I will go back to doing everyone's job now.

Crack and Cheezers

When I get frustrated sometimes depending on how frustrated I am, I will express that frustration with words. Seeing that I have an almost four year old that repeats EVERYTHING, I really have to be careful when choosing what words to express when I am frustrated. Keeping this in mind I tend to use the phrase, "cheese and crackers" a lot. Don't ask me why, I have no earthly idea where it came from I just say it. Hey, it beats the other choice (you know "naughty" words)! Yesterday I was on the computer and getting frustrated. Drew was in and out of the room and he could tell that I was getting frustrated so before I could even get it out of my mouth my baby looks at me and says, "Crack and cheezers mommy". My frustration melted as I laughed for a solid 5 minutes. I love my boy!!!

Seeking Your Advice Please!!!

I have a few things that I would love some advice on:

1. I am trying to decide between buying a Netbook or a new Laptop. I know netbooks are really small, but I don't want another large laptop. I need this for downloading pictures, internet, and a few word/excel documents only. The only people I know with netbooks are children because they are really small. My concerns are this...will the netbook be too small, and will it have enough "memory" to store all the pictures and editing of pictures that I do? If anyone has any knowledge or experience with netbooks please share. :)

2. Buzz Lightyear...my son's favorite super hero but a pain in my neck. The reason I feel this way is this: Drew is obsessed with Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story) and wants a Buzz Lightyear birthday party. Doesn't sound terrible right? Wrong! No place in the greater Birmingham area carries Toy Story or Buzz Lightyear party supplies. I have found Buzz Lightyear party supplies online which is great, however I am still left with one small issue. CAKE. There are no buzz lightyear cake pans, cake decorating kits, toppers anything. I have found one "kit" and it is not cute and I think Drew would be disappointed. Any suggestions?!?!

I would also like to ask for your prayers for our dear friends and their beautiful new baby! Addi is 1 week old today in the NICU and needs God's healing touch right now. I ask that you keep baby Addi and her parents in your prayers.

No Cavity Club!!!

I know, I know it's been a long time. I thought I would give a quick update. We took Drew to his first dentist appointment yesterday and he did amazing. My big boy sat in that chair and let them count, scrape, brush, and floss his teeth and did not move an inch. He had no cavities, which makes him a member of the No Cavity Club! He was so excited to have his picture made and put on the wall. He also got to pick a treasure from the treasure chest! While leaving he asked if we could go back tomorrow. :)

Later on the ride home Drew says, "Mommy you didn't have any cavities either." I said, "No baby, Mommy didn't have any cavities!" He asks innocently, " Why didn't you get your picture put on the wall?" That is a good question buddy, I will have to ask Dr. B. next time we go!
