BUSY SUNDAY
I'm gonna crash hard tonight, I hope, lol. I've washed about 100 loads of clothes, copied a bunch of cd's to use at work so I don't mess up my originals, got our bags together for work, cooked Mags some bkfast ahead, cleaned out my car-whew, went through years of past projects to weed out bad or religious themed stuff, what else?

Now it's 730pm and I'm about to drive 20 mins to wal-mart to buy groceries for the week. Geez. I wouldn't go to wm bc I hate it but I need a lot of the type stuff that's "cheaper" there and target is too far. I don't know, I might just end up going to target.

Well, I know y'all are enjoying reading this, lol. I'm nervous/excited about tomorrow.

OH THE BAD NEWS.... mil called this afternoon and said Morgan had thrown up this morning and is running a fever. Great...she hasn't been sick in 3yrs, seriously! I gave mil the add meds to take home with her and didn't even give her a second to say anything :) Now I have to take Morgan to a psychiatrist though to get the ins to pay.

Hope everyone has had a great Sunday.

Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
Good luck tomorrow! So sorry to hear that Morgan's got a bug :( Hopefully, MIL will endure the worst of it, right? ha!

Try not to worry, you will get the hang of getting everyone out the door. I will admit, I spend a lot of Sunday's doing just what you did today. Running around trying to take care of as much as possible...you will find a groove. I also get very planned about meals. I'll decide on Saturday what we are eating for the week for dinner, then I make sure I buy the stuff at the store over the weekend. I HATE stopping after work for stuff!

Take care Melissa! Enjoy yourself touching those children's lives tomorrow :)

Yeah, I already do the meal planning all at once. That way I don't spend a fortune at the store :)

I know y'all will miss my stupid posts but maybe not me so much, lol. Don't worry, I'll be here, you know I will. And no, this absolutely was not a day of rest for me. I finally just got home from the store--930.

Picture: This is what happens when you raise a kid on health food and they get ahold of a Coke! Bad mom, that soda is NOT on the reflux diet.
UPDATE: Isaiah is now 12 and off meds! He is doing great, eating again and hopefully will be catching up in the growing department. I am still in the "hoping it sticks" phase, but we're so happy that he's better!
Whew! I'm tired just reading this! Praying for your first day back at work...I hope you get some good sleep tonight and that it goes well tomorrow.

Melissa, I don't know if you have posted on this in the past and I didn't catch it or not, but how is Morgan doing on her meds? Can you see a difference and is she doing better with things? I know school is starting soon and you wanted to trial it. Hope it is going well and hope she is better soon! -Liz
