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!
I’ll leave you with a cute picture of Jaxon from this week:
I hope you are all having a great day!!

Suzanne, Tell Joey I am praying for his full recovery. I know back pain stops you in your tracks when its just muscle pain. I can’t imagine what he is going through with the disk. Looking forward to seeing you all soon. Dad
Oh.. I want those bowls! Those are too cute!I wish that we had a Target close by, but the nearest one is about an hour. Darn it!Talk to you soon!AND.. what a sweet dad. I have never had a disk out. But I know it must be horrible. Hope he gets better soon.
Hi Suzanne,I just wanted you to know that I had stopped by and read through your blog. Looks like you have a lot of happiness and cool things in your life and home. Loved the pics of you and your sister. Jaxon is adorable…as are your new wooden bowls with pastel eggs in them! Hope the pink eye is all cleared up by now. Thanks for reading my Nitty.Gritty. Hope to see more of you around! Ciao for now~
Enjoyed reading your post today. 🙂 Sorry that you have infection in both eyes now! Hope it goes away soon. Oh wow, sorry to hear that Joey is in such pain, I will keep him in my prayers that he is feeling better quickly!!aww, that sweet “real” Jax Kiss is priceless!Happy Birthday to Joey, and Happy early Birthday to you as well!Loved hearing about all the bargains you got! Makes the shopping day a lot of fun then. :)Have a super weekend!
I hope you and Joey both get better. I will keep Joey in my prayers. I’ve never had back pain until this pregnancy and as bad as it is, I’m still sure it doesn’t come close to what he’s going through. So, I can sympathize. I hope the therapy helps and he has a 100% recovery very soon.Yall are some birthday maniacs right now. Joey, you, and Jaxon are all what, like two weeks apart? (Yes, I’m still preggo. Hey, I could deliver on Jax’s b-day.)And girl, just wait until this second year of Jaxon’s life. It is SO much fun! Yes, it gets stressful, but as you now know, a kiss makes everything better. Just wait until he can say “Wuv you.” Ooooh, talk about melting of the heart.Last thing, LOVE the bowls!
My mother in law just got addicted to Real Simple also. I am a cleaning, organizing FREAK so I love that magazine! Love the bowls and I love bargains – that is why they call them MUST HAVES!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have read through yours and it is really fun! I will have to bookmark it! I love great shopping deals too! If you have a Kohl’s around they have the best deals on their clearance stuff! I got my little girl some PJ’s and they were less than $2.00!Anyway, hope all is well. Have a great weekend.
