What a day!  My poor baby girl has a cold.. she is miserable.  I agreed to let Kirby come and clean my rug.. I figured.. sure.. clean rug to hear a demo..


The demo took over 3 hours!!  Oh my.  The vacuum cleaner was excellent!!  It was absolutely amazing… but we can’t afford it.  The seller was trying so hard to get us to buy.  Well, now my rug is nice and clean for the Laleche Meeting tomorrow..


Well, off to go make some dip and other treats for tomorrow’s meeting. 


Good night!



Why does it always seem like the house is completely trashed over the weekend when we are hardly even home??  I starting to have a major problem with Mondays..


Saturday Morning we went to the Mall and to Bj’s.. Nothing really interesting.. We also checked out Ames’ clearance.  Nothing interesting at all.  I actually felt like it was a complete waste of a day.  We got absolutely nothing accomplished. 


We watched Lord of the Rings Saturday night.  Angel and David were eating some candy and Annaleah ended up with a lollipop.. what a mistake!!  She was spinning around in a circle and laughing her head off.  She would stop and stare at the floor.. and then this giggle would just bubble up.. It was hilarious.  We actually missed part of the movie because we just couldn’t help but laugh with her.  No more candy for Anna.


Sunday, of course, was church.  I ended up missing the service.  I refuse to leave Anna crying.. So usually I will just play with her and have the worker for that day play with her.. and as soon as Annaleah feels comfortable enough, I leave.  So far everyone has said that she doesn’t cry.. until I get back.. (Mommy, you left me…lol)  Yesterday, she was not letting go of me at all.  Another little girl was screaming for her mom and it made Anna very nervous.  She did finally get comfortable 10 minutes before church was over.. so I went to the bathroom and waited outside the door.  I figure every minute helps.  I know that everyone thinks I am spoiling her rotten.. but I truly don’t want her to feel abandoned.  She is to young to understand exactly where I am going and that I will be back.. So far she is doing great.. she will have days where she is clingy and she will have days where she could care less where I am. 


Well, I have tons to do today.. so I should go..  



Well, it has been quite a day.  I am ready for bed.  But before I go I wanted to share something else Annaleah did today. She peed in the potty yesterday morning when she got up.. and today she pooped!!  I was in shock.  She was trying to tell me something about her pants so we went to the bathroom to change her and I discovered she had pooped.  She still wanted to sit on the potty and she finished in there..  Then she gave me a long story about her poop.  I wonder what she was trying to say.  It was so funny.  My baby is growing up so fast. 


I am finally starting to feel like I am accomplishing things around here.  I am feeling better about myself.  Now to get into a better rountine. 

Goodnight Everyone!



Good morning!  I wanted to post last night but that was not happing.  My loving husband logged me offline last night.. so I gave up and went to bed.


I finally made the decision to put all of Annaleah’s toys in her room.  The Living Room looks abandoned now.  I caught her playing dress up.  We found a Fisher-Price Dress and Play Vanity, that someone was trashing.  A few months ago I managed to snatch the Loving Family Dollhouse that they had also trashed.  I am surprised this family just doesn’t have a yard sale.  Here is a pic of Annaleah posing.



This picture was taken a few days ago.  This is why I have to put her hair up all the time.
