I hope your cold is still improving. And I hope your car didn't cost too much to repair. Our car repair really messed up our budget this month so I know your pain.

Sounds like you take the kids to Chuck E Cheese pretty often. I always just thought of that place for parties only, but I'm sure its fun for the kids.

I had no idea that things could be listed on Toys R Us's site as available and not realy be. Does that mean they can't get those items at all? That's really dumb!

Sorry I haven't been on - Leah's naps have been short and not usually coinciding with Andrew's, so I haven't been able to do much on the computer other than work.

DH has survived the first couple of days alone with the kids. Today will be a little longer. Its been hard because Leah hasn't been napping well, or only on his shoulder, so he can't do much. Then I get home, and he needs a break and disappears, but I'm tired from work, so that's hard too. I also have been having a hard time waking up in the morning. Not sure what I'm going to do Wednesday - if I want to wake Leah to nurse her before I'm supposed to be in the office at 8 am, I probably need to wake up at 4:45 am! Or I'll just the conference call from home again until I can wake up on time.

My family is having a range of reactions to my aunt's condition. Her daughter is just freaking out. My mom is sad, but having to help my aunt deal with the medical appointments and decision making. They went for a CT Scan last week to see if the cancer had spread to her lungs - that will determine whether they do surgery or radiation/chemo instead. Please keep praying!

I know exactly how you feel about not doing work when you aren't feeling well. I have been having a hard time waking up in the morning since I'm still not feeling great. (Yesterday I almost dozed off while rocking Leah at 7 pm - that would not have been good!) I'll keep praying that you get better - that's more important than cleaning anyway!

Why is Toys R us cancelling your orders? That is really frustrating. I hope they refund your GCs or give you cash somehow without issues, and soon.

The main reason I logged back in so quickly is that I forgot a prayer request, and if you have been on FB-CSP then you probably saw it so I apologize. Please pray for my aunt. She's been diagnosed with bone cancer, its supposedly aggressive, and they are recommending amputating her leg at the hip. I don't know how she'd deal with that. She's an alcoholic (she was sober for ~20 years, then recently started drinking again), and just has an addictive, easily depressed personality. She's also poor. If she does the amputation, she might need to move to a nursing home, or live with someone else, so my family (my mom, and her daughter) are weighing all that. This all came to light on Monday, my sister told me on Tuesday, so I've been waiting a few days for my mom to calm down (she's been working 3 12-hr shifts in a row too) before I called her.

I'm so glad to hear your first day back at work went well.

I like little amounts of snow - enough to look at and maybe Andrew to play in. But when it messes with traffic, that's no good. Plus now with DH's hips being so messed up, I hate for him to shovel, but he doesn't want me shoveling. Right now its raining here, but we are supposed to get snow later. Crazy weather.

I'm starting to get nervous that I'm developing an eye infection. My eyes are itchy and I thought I found some crusties, though those might have been standard sleepy ones. And I can't find the eye drops they gave me when I was pregnant and had pink eye. Pray this is just part of the cold and resolves itself! I do not have time to go see someone about this. I've been contemplating switching primary docs because mine is kinda far away (1 hour) - that was okay when I didn't have kids, but I realized that I've been going to urgicare for things in the past couple years that I probably should have been going to a primary care doc.

That's really terrible about your inlaw situation. Its terrible when people are so selfish and weird. Another weird thing about this dinner over the weekend - stepbrother's wife didn't come. She didn't come to Christmas either. That means that stepbrother brought their 5 kids all by himself. That's nuts.

Leah had another good practice with the bottle yesterday. I even had to entertain her for 45 min until DH was ready for her, so that means she saw me before the bottle and still took the bottle. So I think we're through the refusing stage. Next will be to see how much (amount) she takes, but she's been doing well with that too. I'm sure it will vary, and we're probably not totally there yet, but I can probably stop worrying as much!

Now if I could only start waking up on time...
