We're back!

Sorry been MIA. It was a nice trip. The last day of travel was the worst. One of the worst experiences ever. Then as if we weren't worn out enoough we went out and bought a new car! That was exhausting. But we've been planning it for a while, saving for a down payment, etc. We ended up getting a black Nissan Armada Platinum edition, woo-hoo! We now have SPACE!

It's just been busy here. Have I ever mentioned I'm tired?!?! LOL. Anyway, hope to get back to normal with posting here soon.

Leaving on a Jet Plane!!

So T minus 18 hrs until we leave the house for our 8:15am flight! Wish us luck we can totally use all the postive vibes we can possibly get coming our way!

We'll be spending the week in my hometown. We piggybacked our vacation onto a work trip for G. He'll be doing recruiting at his Alma Mater for a few days during his trip. One of the guys he recruited last year (the last time we were back there too!) works the floor below him!

There will be a little get together/all day open house sort of thing on Saturday for mostly visiting and catching up but also for J's 3rd birthday! He'll turn THREE while we're there!

It'll be nice to be able to visit fall and come back home :) We have highs in the 80's and with the humidity the "real feel" is 100! I've never experienced this in October!! Makes it hard to pack for colder weather! Talk about a temperature difference, the highest I saw for while we're there is 60! Lows close to freezing! Oh my... we're going to freeze our converted Texas booties off!

Oh and in other news... I didn't die from mastitis, whew! Went to a fun Moms Night Out thing last night at a local painting ceramics place. It was a ton of fun! I was worried about going due to being sick this week and getting behind on what I needed to do. But I made a Target shopping trip on my way there for things we needed for traveling... so it made it worth it! I'll be on Facebook due to my phone... but won't be around here or other sites. So check ya later ;)

What a pain in the...

So I have mastitis AGAIN. That makes it twice in one month. I'm so frustrated. I'm guessing I need to see a doc about this. But don't have one here AND we leave on Friday early am for Indiana for the week.

I don't know what is going on. This is usually something that new moms get with newborns. Not this late in the game and TWICE in one month. This is not something to mess with... it makes all my joints and muscles stiff and sore, high fever, chills, aches, severe headache, no energy, not to mention the white hot breast pain.

Here I am just trying to provide my baby with the best nutrition possible for the first year of his life. Why do I feel like I'm being punished? I get bit, I get sick, I get leaky, and I get interupted sleep at night.

I would kill for some SLEEP in a quiet DARK room. That would be divine.

Happy Birthday to me! 31 years young?

Ha ha... no it's definitely years old not young. I always swore I wasn't going to be a woman that gets down on her age or whatever. You're only as old as you feel right? Well, I can't go with that because I feel a hell of a lot older then 31... but I don't want to feel OR be 31! Oh well, I don't really have any say in the matter do I?

I got tons of well wishes today, probably the most ever... thanks to good ole Facebook! I received some nice cards in the mail and this afternoon I received lovely flowers from all my guys!! It's a mixture of flowers, but J was right "beeaaauuutiful rooooses!" LOL!

Age aside, it certainly does not feel like my birthday. The weather doesn't feel right at all to be my birthday. Even Atlanta they get a sembelance of fall. My first birthday EVER that it was a high of 90 degrees out with a possibility of swimming this weekend! Thank you Texas! :)

Right now J and G are off getting some sushi carry out to top off my day!! Now only a root beer float from sonic while watching the office (on dvd, we're catching up on last season while dvring this season). But it might be too much to ask G to out AGAIN on my behalf :) We'll see how much I can milk it!
