i just need to let everyone know that i am NOT cut out to be a work-out-of-the-home mom. i have been working at THQ this week (my summer gig, don't ya know!) and MAN! it's really REALLY hard to do that and still be a mom! and what's worse is that this week i am a single mom b/c robert is out at camp! so it's a double whammie!!!! but man, kudos to all your work-out-of-the-home moms out there. it's really really hard!!!

i woke up this morning at 5.15 with a migraine. i can't remember the last time i had a migraine!! it's crazy how they just hit without warning! i have no idea what brought it on...but i still feel like crap 9 hrs later. it's not as strong as it was, but DANG! migraines really knock the life out of you...especially when you have an 8 month old around as well!!!

here's hoping tomorrow will be better!

i had a dr appt today and while everything is great, i left completely brokenhearted. i'll spare you the details, but just know that just because a dr tells you something doesn't mean you have to follow it. if your instincts say to do otherwise, do it! or at the very least, get a 2nd opinion. you have a right as a patient, mother, whatever to do what you feel is best. if you don't agree with the dr, get a 2nd opinion. trust your instincts.

i certainly wish i had.

as a part of my cloth diapering addiction, i have delved into the world of wool (much to my husband's dismay). i got abby's first wool shorts and pants today and i am TOTALLY in love!!! i mean, tell me these aren't the cutest things in the world!!! technically they are supposed to be used as covers for prefolds and/or fitteds (those diapers are not waterproof - they need a cover to keep from leaking) but i think i will just use them as pants and shorts. they fit over her regular waterproof diapers and really, they are just too freakin' cute to mess up!!! i LOVE them!!!

WE'RE HOME!! we had a great time in dallas. saw mom's new house (it's beautiful!) and saw some friends! abby got her 2nd tooth and learned how to sit up all by herself!! she's growing up too fast!!!

while we were in dallas, we met lori and brenam for the first time face to face! that was the highlight of the trip for me! lori and i have been friends online since our girls were born. they were both premature -- due 1 day apart but born 8 days apart. so lori and i went through the NICU stuff together. it was awesome to be able to meet her in person finally!!! here are pictures from our time together!
