10:11 pm - Cassie
Cassie cracks me up. Today at park after school she was making wishes on dandelions for a Hello Kitty Doll. I said she has plenty of hello kitty dolls. She said she wanted a hard doll. She told me to go to hellokitty.com or hellokittydoll.com.

11:34 am - Happy Valentine's Day!
I want to wish all my friends a "Happy Valentine's Day!" I know it has become a very commericial day but remember the days when we were kids *everyone* was your Valentine, because it didn't have romantic or sexual connotations. Please be my Valentine and I would love to be your Valentine too.

Happy Valentine's Day to my loving husband, daughter, family, friends and acquaintances.


Chris surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of roses of many different colors yesterday. But they messed up the order so I will be getting another bouquet of flowers in a couple of weeks. :) Chris, I love you very much! Thank you!


As I was typing this one of my friends posted something very similar. ;)

12:21 pm - Gall bladder removal
Ugg. I have gallstones and my bile duct is clogged so I need to have my gall bladder removed. To make matters worse he wants to do the surgery on Monday and my parents are suppose to leave on a cruise in 2 days and now they have to cancel because Chris doesn't have enough time to take off to care for Cassie. Sorry for venting, but I don't want them to cancel but I can't take care of Cassie. The surgery will be laproscopic so just 4 small incisions and 3-4 days complete rest then reduced activity. There is small chance it would be abdominal surgery.

current mood: scared

7:35 pm - Preschool
My little girl is growing up. Tomorrow we have a meeting at the Preschool Cassie will be starting in the fall. It is hard to believe that she is already starting preschool. My mom is suppose to watch Cassie so we can both go to the meeting. I think Chris might have more to offer a committee than I would so I want him there to hear the different ones. I am nervous for some reason. I was hoping my mom would take Cassie over night so I could sleep in on Friday, but Cassie hasn't been napping when she has been over there so she might be nervous about having her for night when it is more important. Cassie has been getting up at 6 am and with the new medicine I am on I am very sleepy. I am tired of having to get up early. I guess we will see tomorrow.

current mood: nervous

9:53 am - My Birthday
My birthday yesterday turned out pretty well. Chris was fighting off a cold and didn't sleep well Monday night so he called in a sick day. He let me sleep in a little. When I got up, they gave me a hand blender for my fruit smoothies and told me they are getting me a new bike. They decorated the wrapping paper with stickers and made a banner. Then Chris went to lay down for a while. Once Cassie and Chris woke up from their naps. We went to Olive Garden for a late lunch/early dinner. I love their salad and breadsticks. The meal was very good and I have some leftovers to each today. Then we went to Cold Stone Creamery for Cassie and my free birthday ice creams. We only eat 1/2 of each and brought the left overs home for today. I didn't want a cake because I am still trying to lose weight, of course the ice creams were pretty fattening but very yummy.

When we got back we went to the backyard to play at the new playground that they put in a couple of weeks ago. Cassie was having fun trying to play with the older kids that were out. They were nice letting her play catch with them for the most part. Towards the end she asked them to play with her since they had taken a break from the games they were playing and one of the boys kept tricking her. Telling her to go long and then he would go & hide. She took it well. His friends got mad at him saying he was being mean to her. So he threw it to her. Then he did it again and she started to get upset so we headed home.

Then Chris tried to give Cassie a bath, but she has a bad diaper rash so she didn't want anything to do with it but I think he got it done. Not a pleasant time with her screaming. Then he read stories and put her sown for the night.

Then we watched a dvd and relaxed until bed. Overall I had a very nice birthday, it was nice to have Chris home, but I sat around waiting for him to make a decision if he felt up to doing anything. I was upset during the day that my family didn't email or call during the day. My parents called while we were out saying their days were crazy and my sister called in the evening saying her day was crazy also. So they were forgiven.

current mood: happy

11:02 am - 3 yr check up
Cassie had her 3 yr check up this morning. She was very happy and smiley for Dr. S. She is 37 inches tall 75% and 34.7 lbs 80% so she is proportional. He said that she is looking good. The one area we were concerned about was her eating, but he said she is a intermittent eater, like a boa. (Eats a lot for a meal or a day and then is set for a time-barely eating for a couple of days.) He said this was fine, just that we should start her on a daily multiple vitamin. He was glad that she hasn't had anymore wheezing episodes and hopes that she has out grown that. He did say she had some fluid in her ear leftover from when she was sick, but he isn't concerned about it because he didn't tell us to do anything for it. (I am still sick so I'm not thinking straight and didn't think to ask him about it.)

She is in a good mood. I hope she will play by herself today because I feel awful. I need to get better because we have a birthday party to go to tomorrow, and I doubt Chris would want to take her by himself since he really doesn't know everyone very well. (If I go I will just sit away from everyone so I don't get anyone sick.)

10:24 am - Sick
It is really hard to be a Mom when you are sick. I hate being sick. I feel awful. All I want to do is go back to sleep. I guess today will be a movie day for Cassie. We missed going to the zoo yesterday with playgroup because I was sick.

I took Cassie outside since the weather was really nice. We went out in the morning to blow bubbles and then she wanted to go somewhere so we ran out errands. I had to go out yesterday to get stamps to send out Cassie thank you cards, get new key copies for our parents that Chris installed, x-rays of my back for my doctors appointment(I thought it was next week, but isn't until the following week). All the running around didn't help being sick. My mom came over so I could get the x-ray without Cassie since she freaked out with the nurses last time. I was hoping that she would stick around to take Cassie outside, but the sky looked awful and it started to drizzle. So she left and I had to take Cassie outside. Of course, it didn't rain so she could have stayed. After she left Cassie was demanding to go out. So we went to play at the new playground in the backyard and then more bubbles for a bit.

All the running around didn't help how I was feeling. :( Time to relax or as much as Cassie will let me.

current mood: sick

5:59 pm - Cassie's Birthday Party
Friday Chris told me on his way home from work that he hurt his back somehow during the day. :( So I started worrying about Cassie's birthday party on Saturday. My ankle is still not 100% and I didn't want to have to chase after Cassie in the pool. He stayed in bed all Saturday morning to rest his back so he could be at the party and be in the water with Cassie. So I had to deal with Cassie and get everything together for the party. Each day we had told her about her party because saying it was getting closer and that it was a swimming party which was a mistake. Yesterday all she wanted to do was go to her party. We had it at our local indoor pool because they take care of everything, it is very responsible priced and she loves swimming.

I needed to make sure she took a good nap so she wasn't a grump for her party. So we went up early since she was up bright and early and very tired. Of course she barely slept an hour and then I had to deal with her begging to go swimming when she woke up. Of course Chris was still laying down so I needed to delay her as long as I could. We went downstairs. I had her gather some things. Then we changed into our swimsuits slowly. Finally Chris came down so she was happy to finally be going swimming.

Overall, I think it went great. But since Chris back was hurting him I needed to be in the water with Cassie. So I didn't get to really talk to the Mommies. Most of the dad's were in the water with the kids. All the kids looked like they were having a blast. Cassie had fun she wanted to go back today for swimming. The Swim Center Party includes hot dogs, soda, chips, ice cream and the cake. I got a few extra hot dogs so the parents could have some. I think everyone had enough to eat. Well, they didn't do the cake right. I had said our theme was Rubber Duckies, the cake had Mallard Ducks on it. Everyone got a kick out of it.

This morning Cassie woke up with a fever and runny nose. I hope she feels better for by Tuesday her actually Birthday. With her being sick we had to cancel our 2 playgroups this week that we are suppose to host. Chris' back is still really bad so I couldn't sleep in and had to get up with Cassie. I brought up her presents upstairs last night so Chris could be with her when she opened them. Luckily she got some cool presents so she played for a while as I tried to sleep. I am still really tired and sore. My ankle did pretty well yesterday except when 2 kids stepped on it wrong. So today it was very sore. My parents got Cassie a trike so We had to go out in the windy cold weather to take a ride. Grandpa got her a doll house, luckily it had some furniture with it, but we will have to get her some more.

Some 34 pandas were born by artificial insemination in 2006 and 30 survived, both record numbers for the endangered species.
