For the First Time in Five Years

I have gotten a string of pretty good night's sleep. For if one good thing happened from Shey having three cavities, it is that I took away his nightly middle of the night juice fest. After the first couple of nights of only being offered water, Shey apparently decided he would rather sleep through the night than bug me. And the heavens parted and a lovely voice came down singing Alleluia! I may be on my way to functioning like a normal human being.

I bought my first post surgery underwire bra the other day and will wonders never cease, it actually fits me as the manufacturers intended. Meaning, the band fits in the middle of my back rather than up around my neck, and the wires between my cleavage actually touch my body rather than hovering a couple of inches out. Can I say again how much I love my new breasts? One day, I will get around to taking an after photo, and I may share them with you.

I just finished reading Buddha by Deepok Chapra. It's a fictionalized account of Buddha's life beginning when he was a small boy prince and his journey to enlightenment. Very interesting, especially if you have no knowledge of Buddha, which I didn't. Besides Buddhism, it's just an interesting read.

Larry's out of town, so I have the kids. Thankfully, tomorrow is Thursday already.

So Much Going On, So Little Motivation

The blog, she is suffering. I've had plenty of things to write about lately, like how my baby turned five on Tuesday


or how he graduated from Pre-K last night

After the Ceremony 2

or that Larry's cousins and one of my very good friends and their kids are moving in a couple weeks


When I put Peyton's gown on last night before the ceremony I couldn't help but think that in the blink of an eye, he'll be graduating from high school and I would remember the night of his pre-K graduation.

And, I'm spent.

Mom of the Year

Shey had his first dentist appointment this morning. Peyton didn't go till he was 3, but I had noticed some spots on Shey's front teeth that I thought I should have checked out. Actually, if I am going to be honest, I noticed his teeth were yucky a few months ago, but I didn't want to take him in too young and tramatize him. I try and brush his teeth, but he wants to do it himself and I have to fight him to get it done. I should have tried harder though because now he has three cavities and two teeth that can get there very quickly if I don't step up the brushing.

This means on his next visit, they will sedate him, then strap him down and bond the front two teeth and fill the one to the right. This is just going to suck.

Larry arrived home late last night after being out of town for a week. Couple that with my healing the two weeks before and, well, you can imagine it was a pretty nice reunion. With that being said, can I just add that my new perky breasts look amazing! Larry commented with, "they're so perky, they may poke my eye out!" Which, yep, that just about sums it up. ha

If anyone out there is even contemplating the surgery because you are tired of your heavy saggy breasts, I highly recommend getting a reduction and lift. You will thank me for it!

Speaking of smokin' hot, Blake Lewis was last night on AI. The new black hair was awesome and his rendition of You Give Love a Bad Name kicked major booty. His mouth bothers me though. I think it's the lack of lips. But, as long as he keeps the microphone in front of it, I can totally dig him.

And last on the smokin' front, but most important, after 30 some odd years and at least two packs a day, my dad has laid the cigs down. He started cutting back last week or so, and then quit completely on Sunday. I can't even express how happy I am for this or how proud I am of him. Thanks be to God for giving him the strength and courage to do this. I love you, Dad.
