Another whirlwind trip.

Cody had his appointment today with the specialist in the big city. As a result, we went in last night as a family and stayed with my parents. It was not a good night for sleep for me as Micah didn’t settle until after 11:30 p.m. and was up at 4:30 a.m. to eat. Then even after he was settled a half hour later I could not sleep until probably around 6 a.m. I had a sore throat and a stuffy nose, so I couldn’t sleep, and when I did sleep I had disturbing dreams. 

Tonight was a bit crazy and the boys only settled at about 9 p.m, or more accurately, shortly after that. Jamie kept saying he had a tummy ache and wanted to use the toilet, but when I take him he never does. He just gets on and off the toilet over and over again, so it drives me nuts. I finally got a chance to use the bathroom myself and when I came out of my room, there was Jamie sitting on the toilet in the main bathroom all by himself, and wouldn’t you know it, he actually pooped. Haha. That was our breakthrough moment for the evening. 

The good news is, Cody's eyes are not any worse, and they are even slightly better so he is getting a weaker prescription. (He wears glasses, for anyone who did not know, and he has since he was 20 months old.) So, he still does not require surgery and we don't have to go back for another six months, so that's good. 

Now, it's 11:22 p.m. and I just got Micah settled about twenty minutes ago. I'm dumb to be up still because I'm very tired and my throat is quite sore, but I'm also home alone and for some reason I always stay up too late when I'm home alone. I'm watching Transformers, of all things. I saw part of it a long time ago and found it quite lame, but everyone told me it was really good, so I decided to watch when I saw it was on TV tonight. So here I am, watching a movie I don't care about and staying up way too late despite a yucky cold and extreme fatigue. Not smart. Yep, this movie is still lame, but it has some funny lines in it. 

This has not been a very thrilling post, but that's all I've got for now. For anyone who still reads my other blog, you can get the real low-down over there. I can't share it all on this blog. Tomorrow promises to be a busy day cleaning up after our trip and getting ready to go out with a friend from work. The boys will be raunchy from being so overtired, so I hope it won't be too brutal. If it is, I'm sure I'll have stories to tell. Speaking of which, I'll leave you with this Jamie moment. Yesterday morning when Mike was getting ready to leave for work we couldn't find Jamie. Mike went outside and found him sitting in Mike's car. He had with him a "briefcase", which was Mike's laptop case. In it he had packed a random item, which unfortunately I can't remember at the moment. Mike asked him what he was doing and he said he was going to work. Hehe. He also said something about the bunny. Apparently he had tried to pack Oreo to take along first. Mike saw him in action. He is so funny. Good thing he did not take the bunny outside or Oreo would probably no longer be with us. Radar would love to sink his teeth into Oreo, and if he didn't get him, the coyotes surely would. Fortunately, everyone is safe and sound in the house for now, other than Mike, who is out at a movie tonight with one of his brothers. 

I really have to go now. The movie is not over, but I have not been paying attention for at least the last hour, so I don't really care. Hopefully I'll have time to post tomorrow, but I also have a lot of homework to get done by next Tuesday, so I'll be working on that too in my spare time. Goodnight all.

I thought Transformers was lameo too. But you are right there are a few funny lines. And that girl the lead actress, what is all the hupla about how gorgeous she is? She's really pretty and all, but all the ra ra ra, it's silly. I think that every beautiful woman needs a little meat with her potatos, you know what I am saying? I owe you an e mail and it's comming. I am very happy that your son doesn't need surgery, Woo hoo! So cute that Jamie was on his way to "work". He sounds like a very entertaining character. Last night my 2 year old unlocked the dishwasher while I was cooking dinner and took out a small steak knife and was pretending he was a brave knight with a very sharp sowrd. That lasted all of 4 seconds. I need a pad lock for my dishwasher. All three of my kids are magnitized to that life saving appliance.
Talk to you later!
Love Candy

Hehehe, you're funny with your meat and potatoes analogy. I like it. Your kids are so much like mine. I wonder what it would be like if they were all in the same room at the same time!
