On the sick side, I'm feeling much better. Still have a few days of meds left but am totally on the mend.
Earlier last week, my aunt had e-mailed me and told me she had a birthday package in the mail for me. Yippee! I love presents. I got the present on Friday while I was home alone. It was marked fragile and I had no clue what it could be. Then I opened it. Now just fyi, my aunt makes beautiful scrap books. She spends hours working on them, getting each page just right. Well, when I saw the wrapped package in the box, in the shape of a book, I wondered if she had made me a scrapbook.
Then I thought maybe she did one of my father, since she had pictures that I might never have seen before. I unwrapped it and started crying.
Now I know that is sooooo not what my Aunt Betty had intended, but it happened none the less.
My BFF Nikki wasn't around, my great friend Christina was not around, and Nicole was at school and Chris at work. I didn't want to call Nikki because she was at work. I couldn't call Chris for the same reason. I called Christina. Blubbering like a big idjit. She finally calmed me down enough to get out of me what was wrong. She told me she would stay on the phone with me while I opened it.
I calmed down alot, and looked at the pictures. Later on, alone, I went back to the album and read all the little additions she had written in it. Stuff about the vacations they took and such. Immediately I could tell how much love and time she had put into making it, and I realized it was something I would treasure forever. When Nicole got home from school, she and I also sat down and looked at it, and talked, and laughed and remembered.
Then Saturday we didn't do much but clean house. Trying to get everything off the floor in preperation for the new puppy. Thats right - we decided to get the puppy.
This was just after we got her:
This was lastnight - se how spoiled she already is?
I'm very proud of Nicole in the way she is already trying to train the puppy. She is already trying to teach her to come when she calls, get used to a leash, and of course teach her NOT to bite. My sock already has a small hole in from the mini razors in her mouth. She has not had ANY accidents in the house so far! In the two whole days we've had her, I thought we would have had at least a few. We are trying to crate train her and she yelps like crazy, and we take her out and she goes! We are giving her some puppy formula mixed with puppy chow , as she wasnt' completely weaned when we got her, but she is 5 weeks old and the vet said we could wean her just fine with the powdered puppy milk. Its a plus that she likes it:))
I had a nice, quiet Mother's Day. I didn't do anything special, but I did get a very pretty homemade card from Nicole, and she helped me make breakfast too! She makes awesome scrambled eggs. Then Chris did all the dishes, scrubbed down the counters and the stove. I've never been more attracted to him! lmao, haha j/k!
I worked yesterday, subbing for a fourth grade class. It went great! It was even better that I got my brace liners and was able to wear capris and my new sandals! I will show them to you tomorrow via pictures.
Today is my birthday and I'm not working. I will do the breakfast dishes, then pick a few movies to watch and sit and read the Sunday paper since I wasn't able to on Sunday! I also am not going to cook tonight, as Chris said he would buy me my birthday pizza from Romas - my favorite Italian restaurant!
Hope everyone had a great Mothers Day, and has a great rest of the week!
