Something great happens today...
For once I can give a positive note. Today Michael and I decided to push it and go out to lunch at Olive Garden with our certificates from Christmas. Yes we have had them that long. So we go and take the babies. Braddy had fell asleep and Mom kept him and the other 3 were in school.

On the way there Michael and I have a wonderful conversation and we are just cutting up and giggling so. (Like it was when we met 16 yrs ago) We go have lunch and the babies of course wake up when we sit down but stay just content in their car seats the entire meal. They didn't really want to eat just talk to each other and play. We had the best time and for a few minutes I got to forget about everything in my life. I want so hard to ignore everything and just respond to the good but I know that is not impossible.

Donnessa the babies both had tubes about 5 wks ago. They did wonderful with the surgery and by that night you couldn't even tell they had anything done. They heeled quickly and were fine until this week and it all hit. The ENT said their canals were so tiny that you could barely see the drum. My father had this and I have to return for a hearing test next week. Right now I have lost 40% of my hearing. My kids got ear problems honest.

My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including,,, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online. Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
I am so glad u got a break. I know u needed it. We all need to get away sometimes. Sometimes I ask my hubby to keep Megan just for an hour so that I can run to wal-mart. It is a cool down time for me, to reflect on my day and just take a short break.

I hope today is a great day too for all of us. I don't know how u keep up with 6 children. You must be a super super mom.

GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
I was just dreaming for a second about a dinner out with my husband....and then realized it was a dream. Great news about the wonderful night you had!! Really sorry about your hearing, though. Is that permanent?

Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
That's wonderful about going out with Michael - it's amazing what a little time with hubby will do, huh? If anyone deserved a nice time, it's you. My dh and I went out to dinner last night as well - it was heaven.

I forgot the twins got their tubes already - sorry!

So happy to hear you had a sanity moment. My dh and I are going to try to go out to dinner with another couple tonight. My ILs are watching the boys. DH and I both agree, we'll be shocked if we don't have to come home early. Nicholas is teething and just being a super fussy and only wants mommy and daddy. Wish us luck.
