I love my hubby, but this new position at work is killing us both. The boys miss him so much. I'll admit, I even miss the big guy a little, too! Hubs, where oh where, are you tonight? You left me here, here all alone (w/2 boys). Love you! Come home soon! Nothin' like a comedy break to lighten the mood and lift the spirits...one of my favorites (yes, I realize this makes me a total nerd and social outcast.)*Pause the music player on the right side of the screen first...too much of really good things if you don't! :0)

I just want to go on record right now..."Thank you" to those of you who have been so kind with your comments, both personal and electronic, about our newest addition. Everyone has been so amazing! Sometimes it's hard to see what is right in front of your face...Eric and I have numerous friends, all sending their best wishes and congratulations. When you're in the grind of daily life, you tend to lose sight of just how many folks are backing you all the way, through thick and thin. Hopefully, we are in the thick of life now and we so appreciate all of your love and wishes and support and offers to babysit three children at once...oh, I might have made that last part up...maybe...

Okay, I'm done pouting and I'm totally over myself. Apparently, there are a grand total of two people who look at this blog from time to time and I'd hate to disappoint. So...
We are pregnant!!!!!
I was a classic case of denial after our ordeal at the end of the summer, so I didn't even find out until Christmas break. By that time, I was almost three months...go figure...you'd think I'd have caught on a little sooner, right? Anyway, we are almost four months now and are VERY excited. Eric and I both wanted to wait a while, so that hopefully we won't have to go through all the drama like the last time.
We should know what we are having at the beginning to middle of March...and we can't wait! Obviously, it matters not to me whether it's a boy or girl. However, I did mention to Eric that if this is not a girl, I may have to invest in a lap dog...I have a serious need to put bows on something!!! :0)
Other than that, Braden is getting ready for his Scout Blue and Gold banquet in a few weeks, where he will advance to the next level. It's very exciting and he's just beside himself over it!
Garrett is in full kindergarten prep mode, although that kid could run academic rings around most kindergarteners. He is reading and the sight words are abounding and his math skills are impeccable...thanks to big bro Braden! I will be filling out paperwork very soon to have him transferred to the FS district and early kindergarten enrollment should be in April. The time...my how it flies!
In future posts, look for updates on my new project (haven't actually started it yet, and won't until I know if we've gotten ourselves a boy or girl). I have decided to sew my own crib set...so be watching, waiting, and praying!

Hey, I realize I totally fell off the blogging wagon and failed to post for quite some time. BUT, it's hard to motivate myself to post when it appears that I am posting for my own health...and I'm NOT! Who wants to spend all this time away from the joy of life if nobody is even going to comment, editorialize, argue, or just tell me to kiss their patooty!???? It's just like that classic Reba song..."Is there life out there?" Well, is there? Hmph! And I have big news to share, but I guess I'll just keep it to myself. Yes, I'm pouting...deal with it.
