Fun Times...

Fun times are upon us. I just got back from a mall where I met WWE announcers Jim Ross (JR) and Lillian Garcia. They were very nice and were in town to promote Wrestlemania 24 tickets going on sale. Wrestlemania will take place on March 30th at the Citrus Bowl and tickets go on sale Saturday.I plan to have mine on Thursday from the presale.The bottom line is... come Sunday,there won't be a ticket left. I'm looking forward to it, but I won't weight the entire blog down with wrestling.

Earlier today I had my one year evaluation with my company and in addition to saying very nice things about me, they decided to give me a raise. I was expecting a small raise, but this was a bit more, so that was nice! More than anything, it makes me feel justified in moving here.
My only complaint about work was the pay and since that area looks to be improving, I'm happy all the way around.

Last Thursday we embarked on a road trip to North Carolina to see Whitney and Graham and attend their Halloween party. Mary and I went as Wario and Princess Peach. The party itself was fun, but I think we had more fun just hanging out with them. We wish we could have stayed longer, but thats the way work is sometimes. We got a break from the ever beautiful tropical weather here and experienced "real" weather up there. It felt nice to
be in a cool rain.
It made me miss home a little, but then I remember that those cool rains turn cold and last for months... Mary and I really enjoyed the time together on the road as well. It helped us refresh our batteries and feel even more connected to each other. We made a stop off in Jacksonville on our way back to hang out with Annie and Billy, or Bannie. Annie was kind enough to make us supper and we watched her Sox destroy the Rockies. I didn't want to leave there either, but we carried on and made it home safe. This was our second trip to Annie A's apartment. On our first we ended up going to the beach, playing some games, and watching Florida get beat by Kentucky. Also a fun time.

This weekend we also plan to see the Abbots, as they come visit us for the weekend. We decided to hold off a bit on taking Annie to the Happiest Place on Earth. We will probably do that next month so Bannie can see the Christmas deco. However, we will try to find some drinks and fun around that area this weekend.

Speaking of drinks, we went out last
Wednesday night to celebrate Krystal's 21st B-day
with some of the BWP crew. It was an interesting night of birthday cake, panhandlers, and the backseat of our car never being the same again... We'll just leave it at that... If you want to know more, just ask...

Well, I think I have fulfilled my contractual obligation and have run out of things to write about. Holla.

Golden Slumbers (On God & Jude @ 15 Months)

Golden slumbers fill your eyes. Smiles awake you when you rise. Sleep pretty darling do not cry. And I will sing a lullabye.— Golden Slumbers, The Beatles



My child does not sleep. He’s a sweet little 15-month-old who thinks sleeping through the night is for wimps. In fact, in his little mind, it’s not even necessary. I have read every book, asked seasoned parents, and even thought about just letting him cry-it-out, alone in his room, but nothing seems to work. Our bedtime routine happens like this: Dinner time at 5:30, it’s usually something yummy like green beans with turkey or mashed potatoes with ham, followed by a tall glass of milk and maybe some yogurt for dessert. After filling his cute little tummy, it’s on to bath time where we sink a thousand rubber duckys into a pool of bubbles while dumping cups of water out of the tub onto the tile. Then it’s off to the nursery where we read “Goodnight Moon,” sing a special lullaby, and begin the rocking to sleep. Now, all the parenting e…

Hey Jude!

Jude is finally here! I have SO much to say and so many pictures to share! But, I'll try to not ramble on too much and just give you the facts about my little perfect little boy!


To the Hospital:Here we are, our little family before Jude, on Wednesday morning May 26. I was nervous going in but I knew that by the end of the day our little boy would be here and so it calmed my nerves a little bit. We ended up getting to the hospital a little late because I was moving so slow, but thankfully they still let us in! : )

Hospital Time:
So, here I am after we got all checked in. They would only allow Martin back in the room with me so he took this shot, my last pregnant belly shot with Jude. Having a scheduled c-section still doesn't prepare you for how scary it all is. At least when you go into "labor" there isn't time to really think about the "What ifs" but sitting there I was nervous and scared and afraid of everything that could go wrong in a c-section. They …

6-Ten Yoga

--> 6:10 a.m. Yoga club. Well, that’s what I’ve named us anyway. My friend Jenny (who also happens to be our child care provider, homeschool expert and all around great person) and I decided to start going to Yoga at 6 a.m. because an awesome woman in the community was offering free classes.
Okay, so they aren’t really free. They are “donation” based – but a donation is far better than paying $100 a month for the gym in the off chance I’ll get up. Plus – I feel a lot guiltier skipping out on the “free” yoga because this sweet woman is giving her time to a small group of women and doesn’t expect to be paid for it. I WANT to go so that she gets a donation. It’s a weird reasoning.
Anyway. We get up at 5:30 a.m. after probably only sleeping 4 hours (Jenny has four kids and I have two, so there isn’t a whole lot of hours to get to ourselves so going to bed early is always out!) and we drive the 15 minutes over to the lake front park to be there by 6:10.
The sky is still dark when …
