I’m still infected here! Now it is in both eyes. I think it’s getting better, but was informed today by the Dr. that I am still contagious. Thank goodness Jaxon is better. I just hope I don’t give it back to him. It’s hard to keep a loving, active baby away from your face. I’ve just been washing my hands constantly!
In other news…Since I’ve been home all week(by the way, I’m so thankful to work for such a wonderful, understanding Woman. I couldn’t imagine myself working any other place, execept for home!), I’ve been cooking, cleaning, organizing & catching up on a few shows I DVR’d!
Before I begin all the randomness, I must report. I got my first real kiss from Jaxon today. I was holding him while we told Joey goodbye this morning. Joey and I shared a quick peck & Jaxon watched so intently. Next thing I know, his lips are puckered and right on mine! How sweet. It was only once & he will not give one to Joey. It totally made my day!
We woke up to snow this morning. Yes it is March 23 & it’s FREEZING outside. CRAZY!!
I’m totally enjoying this:
I’d never REALLY looked at real simple before a few months ago. I got a trial subscription & I am totally hooked. It is the only magazine that I ACTUALLY read every page of. They even have Real Simple organizing things at Target now. So cool. I went today. Tomorrow is Joey’s birthday & I had to go get his gift. I saw the organizing stuff, had a great organizer in my basket, then decided to wait until after my birthday, which is Sunday.
While at Target I scored a couple of deals. I walked the ends – you know where all the clearance stuff is! Oh Yeah!! I got some wrapping paper for $.74! I also got a new bathing suit for $9.76!! It is not the cutest in the world, but I know we will be swimming a lot this summer & I don’t want to wear the same one every time. I AM NOT where I want to be with my weight, so I’m not going to spend a lot of $$ to cover it!
I had to go to Wal-Mart to get Joey’s gift, because it was cheaper there. Right around the corner from us is an old-fashioned Wal-Mart. I don’t mind going there at all. I DO NOT like the supercenter’s around here though. I wasn’t there too long & found some great stuff.
I got Joey’s Video Game – The Godfather (I know 29 might be too old to be playing video games, but that is his “wind down” thing, while the computer & my addiction to all things blog related are mine). Oh yeah, and I got carded while checking out. His game is rated M for mature & I guess you have to be older than 18 to buy it. I guess someday I will love the fact that I look like I’m still in high school!
For a while now I have wanted a wooden salad bowl/set. I came across this while looking for a candy dish. Oh my. I really like it. I again decided to wait until after my birthday, so I just got A small bowl for candy. When I handed the lady (that had just carded me)the bowl she said “Oh, I love these”. I said “me too, I’ll be right back, I’m going to get the rest” I knew if I waited & they weren’t there in a few days that I would regret it & always wish I’d bought them!!
Here they are:
This bowl has some YUMMY Reeces Pieces Easter Eggs in it!!! I’m sure they won’t be there for long!
I also found these videos for the playroom for $1.00 each!! Jaxon is watching the Muppet’s right now!!
That’s about all for today. I’d like to ask you all to keep Joey in your thoughts & prayers. He has been having back pain since August. He recently found out he has a herniated disk. He is undergoing decompression therapy & will be for the next month. Normal, every day tasks are very painful for him & sometimes impossible. He is not the “sit around type” and is taking this very hard. I just pray for a full recovery so he can get back to normal. Thank you so much!
