Words so sweet

Today I picked up Logan from school and as we walked across the parking lot he said, "Mommy lets play I spy, I'll start. I see something red." I replied "the car". Logan said it was my turn and I said " I spy something yellow" and he guessed right. Then he said "my turn! I spy a beautiful lady, who I love." and it was me.

Another year older!!!

Aaaahhh!! I'm another year older and can't understand where the years have gone. I have turned 38, how did that happen???? I don't feel it, well maybe, my body seems to be doing some new wierd things, but mentally no. Actually I should say at heart because mentally there have been more episodes of forgetfulness, sometimers or momtimers. I had a great birthday, it was the little things that meant the most. Logan painted a beautiful picture of hummingbirds, my favorite, and Dennis gave me a card that meant a lot. It was a card that I knew he read and felt the words and it made me cry. I love my boys!!!!

We didn't do anything on Friday, my actual birthday, because the office I work for takes a picture every year for our holiday card. The Drs. always buy us dinner after. This year it just happened to be scheduled on my birthday and it was a lot of fun. We took our picture on a boat off the wharf in Monterey and even went on a mini ride for about 30 min. There is one male Dr.(poor guy!), three female Drs. and 12 crazy, silly women who actually all get along and have a great time. Saturday Logan and I went to his little swingers golf class and out to breakfast, just the two of us (Dennis works every other Sat. till 12) and I spent the afternoon cleaning the inside of the van. I recently sat in the back seat after not doing so for a very long time and was horrified at how dirty it was. Especially the sliding door, I never see the inside of when I put Logan in his seat. I think his juice box exploded a few times, or most likely he used it as a squirt gun, without me knowing it. So I scrubbed the whole inside of the van, vacuumed and fabreezed it.

Today was my birthday fun day. The Renaissance faire is at Casa de Fruta and we went for the whole day. We love the faire, its so much fun. Logan really loves it. Unfortunately I didn't have any time to make any costumes but will have to maybe start planing now for next year. Logan was very upset with me. He wanted to be a Knight or at least a squire, especially since he just had his Knight birthday party. I haven't gathered all the pictures of his birthday yet but as soon as I do I will post some along with our renaissance pictures.

Thank you for all the happy birthday cards and comments. I love and miss you all too.

Spoke too soon

It's 12:30 Mon. morning (Labor Day) and Logan wakes up screaming and crying because of a terrible earache I drive all over town looking for a store open to buy eardrops and finally find a Longs drugs, on the other side of town, open. I get home and give him the drops, Dennis rubs his back and we play soft music, he falls asleep and we think he'll be ok. Again he wakes up crying and screaming and says his ear is worse, it is now 3am. After a half hour, I can't take it any more and don't think he can either, we decide to take him to emergency, thank goodness it's a slow night and they see him right away. Yes, it's a really bad ear infection and they give him pain med and antibiotics. We go home, it's 4am, and we sleep until 2pm.

What a crazy couple of weeks! I can't believe what Logan has been through. Today he is fine he went back to school last Tues. I think we are staying home this weekend and vegetating.

I have survived!!!!

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity and it ends this weekend, thank goodness, because I am about ready to collapse!! It's all been for fun though so it has been worth it. Two weeks ago we started with Logan's first week of school and and ended the weekend with: Friday night at the Circus, Saturday night at the Heart concert and Sunday all day at a family picnic and swimming. Logan spent 4 1/2 hours of swimming, non-stop, really and truly! How anyone can doggy paddle that long, I have no idea. I keep telling Dennis that Logan is part energizer bunny or I guess, fish in this case. I think now he believes me.

Monday Logan was back at school and Dennis and I back at work, then Logan came down with a Nasty virus on Tues., I have never seen him so sick and miserable. Three days of coughing, high fever and stomach ache. I thought he was on his way to recovery Thurs. morning (his actual birthday), he seemed a lot better and requested pizza and Ice cream cake for his birthday dinner. When I got home however, he had just woken up and his fever had, soared again and he was vomiting non-stop. He had really bad stomach pain and I couldn't even touch his tummy. I freaked out thinking it might be appendix and we took him to urgent care, we sat there for 2 hours and in the meantime Logan had purged that "evil" virus from his system and was bouncing around the exam room like he hadn't been so ill, just a few hours before. I told the Dr. it was like taking your car to the mechanic with that weird noise, that suddenly disappears when he looks at it. The Dr. said it was the tail end of the virus, his tummy was fine and he wouldn't be surprised if that was the peak of it, sure enough he was better the next day. He still has an occasional bad cough, but as per the Dr. he's ok for his birthday party (really an event!) on Saturday.

So here we are the day after the event and I have survived, Dennis and I pretty much did nothing except try to un-package Logan's new toys, which is really a job in itself. Can you believe all the twisty ties, tape and little clear rubber bands they use anymore? It took us two hours to figure out how to turn his new Optimus Prime transformer into a big rig, only to have him want it turned into a robot again right after! You gotta just laugh and love it though. He had a really great birthday party, as soon as I get the pictures I'll post them and tell you all why I have declared myself certifiably insane. Also, I have to thank God for his little miracle this morning, Logan slept till eleven and so did Dennis and I!!! Yeah!!!!!!!
Energizer Fish

Not so happy Birthday Boy :(
