October, Lily, vacation, and I whine a little.

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. - (Philippians 4:6)

It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! For me anyway.

I made sure everyone I spoke to today knows that this is my favorite month of the year.
My good thing: It's October!!!!
My bad thing: My shins are killing me.

I was glad when this day ended.
My good thing: A small McDonalds fry for lunch.
My bad thing: Pretty much the rest of the day.

I know y'all don't care about my reproductive system, but the cramps and pains were so bad today I spent my entire shift at work on a heating pad. I did all my paper work, but other than that I failed.
After work several of us went to Papa's Bar and Grill. It was nom.
My good thing: Free cheese sticks.
My bad thing: The Braves lost the first game of the playoffs.

So I went to the Dr. with Rebecca.. Who found out 5 weeks ago that she is pregnant.
The baby, Lily, will be here Tuesday.
In 3 days.
Yeah....this month's blog just got a whole lot more interesting.
My good thing: I had a cheeseburger for dinner, the Braves won.
My bad thing: Not mentally prepared to be a good example for my niece.

Off day! Went to buy groceries, ate lunch, then spent the rest of the day cleaning.
My good thing- PIZZA!!!!!
My bad thing- It was SO hot and muggy.

I have so much to do today, and yet I lay on the couch watching the Braves game. It has felt so nice outside today, I have the windows open now and I am loving it!!! I wait all year for this day. Tomorrow Rebecca will be admitted and then soon Lily will be here!!!!
When we went walking, we always stop at the bridge. This nasty thick foam stuff was in the water.

My good thing: Leftover pizza!!!!
My bad thing: The Braves are losing this series.


Click here to see Lily!!!


Lily is in NICU in Shreveport, they took out the breathing tube. Hopefully she can come home in a week or so. Rebecca will get to come home tomorrow (my good thing). I can't imagine having a baby and having to come home without her(my bad thing).

What you're seeing here is more rare than a sprinting gazelle frollicking after a hot pink mother in a picture.


I slept until 10am and now I am catching up on all of my shows.
Cleaned house and went grocery shopping.

My good thing: ^^ that picture
My bad thing: *note to self* stay away from alcohol for a very long time


I am so ready for her to come home so I can hold her.

When the Alabama game and NASCAR race were coming on, it started to rain and we lost signal. Scott handled it well:

My good thing: Had a nice day at home, watched all my DVR'd shows
My bad thing: Headache and nausea. Totally alcohol related.


In what universe?

My good thing: The Walking Dead is back!!!
My bad thing: It kinda sucked

A day of unevents.
My good thing: I finished the first disc of Elementary. Outstanding.
My bad thing: So very tired.

She gets it from me.

I am still tired, but determined not to slack on my exercise today.
It's looking like Lily will get to come home this weekend. I canNOT wait!!!!

My good thing: Air conditioning.
My bad thing: I totally didn't exercise.

Off day!! Got my flu shot. I could be dead.

My good thing: This awesome lamp^^^^^^
My bad thing: Still no sleep.

Apparently I am not splitting this blog into two parts, I just realized it was already the 17th.
One of my favorite guests at the hotel left today. He didn't know today was going to be his last day, so my last memory at least won't be a sad one. He was cool. And so old.
My good thing: It's payday!!
My bad thing: My blood sugar is over 400 and I feel like crap.

Off day!!! It is a beautiful, sunny, 55 degrees this morning. No word on Lily :(
This has been the longest October ever. And I love that!!!

Callie doesn't like to share her food, but the kitten is a bigger badass. Callie would take a bite, snarl her lip, take a bite, snarl her lip....And yes I feed them in the living room, that way I can play referee AND watch Criminal Minds.

3 1/2 years later, and I still haven't recovered from this evening:
The worst late night snack ever

My good thing: SLEEEEEEEEEP.
My bad thing: This Paranormal Activity 5 trailer

Great googlie mooglie this work day is vicious!!
Update on Lily, health wise she is getting so much better, but on the downside she doesn't want to eat, so she can't come home. She is 11 days old and I haven't got to hold her, and I have only seen her right after she was born. This sucks, she is delaying me being the best aunt ever.

My good thing: The weather is amazing!!
My bad things: Mean hateful people.

My mother is awesome. The end.

My good thing: I went to bed at 5:30pm
My bad thing: Asleep at 5:30pm, I accomplished nada.

My good thing: I have discovered Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman
My bad thing: There are only 3 episodes a season, & I have to watch online.

My good thing: Sherlock and my comfy bed.
My bad thing: I miss Lily so much, and I haven't officially met her yet!

My good thing: Chocolate ice cream.
My bad thing: 10 long days til vacation.

I cooked:
Burrito Lasagna

My good thing: Had bonding time with the fam.
My bad thing: I have failed as a sister. Bailey says, while we were watching hockey, "so it's like baseball!!"

I cooked!!!
Divine Potato & Chicken Dish
And Happy Birthday to a great friend, Virgil

My good thing: I watched Bones and Elementary all day.
My bad thing: The "chicken" incident.

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

So when they find the bones of Christ, in crucified form, i.e. Crown of Thorns, the pierced hands and feet, it turns out it is in fact, Judas, who took Jesus' place. Get off of my Kindle, trash.

My good thing: Bubba Wallace won his first race. It makes me happy to see anyone win for the first time, but especially a drive I like and follow.

My bad thing: I went to sleep, Scott woke me up, then I laid there for hours. Pouting.

Oct. 27th:
Lily will possibly get to come home Friday. It's been 19 days....Haven't seen her yet. I am whining, I know.

If anyone wants to buy me this door rack , I will totally give you my mailing address.

My good thing: 4 1/2 more work days then VACATION!!
My bad thing: Those 4 1/2 days....

Oct 28th-
My good thing: I discovered Earl Grey Tea.
My bad thing: Life-ruining headache.

Oct 29th-
I cooked. Again. Creamy Beef & Rice

My good thing: Another day closer to vacation and Lily coming home.
My bad thing: I'm totally over this 2-day headache

Oct 30th-
Now they are saying Lily may get to come home Monday, Nov 3. Sigh. She's going to have teeth before I get to see her.

My good thing: ^^^^^^
My bad thing: ^^^^^^^

Oct 31:
Happy Halloweener!! It was raining so hard that my 10 step walk from the driveway to the truck resulted in pouring water out of my shoes. My absolute favorite day of the year, you'd think I'd be happy right? Wrong-o.
Work was very long and horrible. My legs started hurting so bad I was a bawling mess. I had two trick or treaters. I didn't get home til late, and didn't have time to go do my traditional fun things with my sister.

My good thing: I am one work shift away from vacation.
My bad thing: I am one more work shift away from vacation.

Let me leave you with a picture of the most perfect baby in the world.
