Roller Coaster

Today was ok...felt really good and felt really bad...

Dave was so sweet and got a signature from one of the principal's at Isabella's school this morning. It was for my log of hours and I forgot to get an administrator's signature. I was happy that he got to meet my counseling supervisor:)

Finley was not feeling well today. She has a cold and had gas...poor baby:)  

And....I'm so produd of Dave!!! He installed our dishwasher successfully...so he will go to Home Depot tomorrow and get a refund on the installation fee we paid:) score! 


Appliance problems

We have had the worst luck with appliances. Our dishwasher broke, then our garbage disposal broke (Dave fixed it), I tried washing two pillows at once and the washing machine overflowed with water. The dishwasher was delivered around 11 am. A few hours later the installation people showed up. They said they couldn't install it because of some tubing we had. Our house was built in 2005 or 2006....we are aggravated. Dave tried to put it in, but the front leaks so he is going to have to try and figure it out.

The good news is that we are sooo blessed!!! Life is still great:) 

We bought the girls Frozen. They watched it last night and are watching it again tonight. I have my class in a few minutes and the girls missed dance...we just couldn't get it together:)


I had surgery Wednesday morning to have the left side of my thyroid removed. Christa was awesome and spent the night Tuesday night to sort the girls out. I had to be at the day surgery center at 6 am. The surgery went very well. I imagined I would sleep the rest of the day...poor me, I was wrong. I was soo nauseated all day from the anesthesia. It was horrible...the doctor called in zofran...they didn't work...finally around 10 pm I threw up and felt better. 

This morning my awesome twin sister showed up at 7 am with flowers, sushi, magazines, and donuts.  Dave took me to have my port taken out (it freaked the girls out...Isabella asked if I was in a car wreck and Sophia asked if I was going to die)...poor girls:) Christa cleaned my house while we were gone..did I mention how awesome she is!!!

I'm just sleeping and taking it easy. I have an online class tonight:) I'm so grateful for everything!!!! God is great!


Lots of stories....

Today was so nice.....lots of positive vibes.... I interned at Isabella's school. 

My mentor counselor is so awesome.....I thank God for blessing me with this internship/mentor.  She is so nice, professional, and caring.  She treated me to lunch at Zoe's because tomorrow is my surgery.  Everyone has been so nice.  She, a teacher, and the assistant principal wanted to bring me food.  I told them I was SOOO appreciative, but they were way too busy and plus, I do freezer meal exchange:)

Sophia's school sent me a picture of her during naptime.  Imagine my surprise when I see her sleeping with her HUGE stuffed animal alligator.  She was all excited that this week's letter was A.  She decided she wanted to bring the alligator.  I told her show and tell was Friday, she could bring it then.  Somehow Dave heard part of the conversation and thought it was ok.  The teacher thought it was funny. 

Her teacher also told me that Sophia told her a princess story about Princess Arial and Prince Eric who kissed and lived happily ever after.  She said, "my mommy and daddy kiss all the time because they are in love"...

Christa and Charlotte are spending the night so she can help with the girls.  Christa facetimed Brad and Sophia started talking about her boyfriend "Niles" (One Direction).  I asked her what happened to Justin Bieber.  She said, "he's in jail".  I don't like him at all.

Isabella's class is doing a unit on farms.  She keeps on talking about interesting facts.  She said she wants to have her own farm one day. Sophia said she would milk the cows. 

Isabella told me "mom, I saved my friends life today".  Me, "really, what happened?"  Isabella "well, my friend is allergic to fire ants.  I saw one and stepped on it....I saved her life"....Too cute:)

Dave dropped Finley off at school.  When I left this morning she had the ugliest orange bib on.  When I picked her up from daycare 8 hours later she was still wearing the ugly orange bib. I guess the daycare thought we wanted her wearing it all day....First world problems.


Monday was good. I went to a mops meeting. I have missed the last few meetings because of being busy with the internship.

I went to the store to try and get my freezer meal stuff:)


Busy weekend

This weekend was GREAT! Dave showed up Friday night with a huge pizza (size of 3 large pizzas)

Saturday we went to Home Depot and bought a new dish washer. Ours broke. Dave was happy because he has always disliked ours:)

We cleaned the house during the rest of the afternoon.

Sturday night we headed to La Centerra for an Italian dinner and for the girls to be entertained by Radio Disney. They had a blast!

Sunday morning our carpenter came over to start on some of our projects (they still need to be painted)

Shelves will go here

Someone broke in our car last night (we accidentally left it open)..they only stole about 20.00...I called the cops because this is not the first time this has happened.

We met up with friends for crawfish and lunch:)

We then headed to the new Costco.

Dave was super awesome and took the girls to a dinner picnic so I could work on an assignment that was due. He's pretty awesome.
