Home Happenin's

John's home! Woo hoo! There's nothing like growing closer to a spouse because of being separated from one another. It's so nice to have him home.

We've been reading Junie B. Jones books. They're children's books and are hilarious! I had a laugh attack into the first few pages of the first book of hers we read. The kids didn't quite know what was going on - besides Ethan who had witnessed such an ordeal before.

We're getting our garden going! I'm so excited. I'm a convert to the "SFG" (Square Foot Garden) idea and I think it's going to be great. We're going to plant beets, collard, kale, spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, string beans, sweet peas, and pumpkins. Sounds like a leap of faith considering this will be my first real garden ever! But, the SFG makes it so simple and almost fool proof - I can't wait to see the results.

I slept good last night but listen to the details of the night before....I got up twice to take tylenol (ongoing toothache), once to go to the bathroom, once to blow my nose, once to cedric crying for his binkey at the end of my bed, I placed millie's binkey back in her mouth about 5 times, I nudged John about 5 or more times to stop snoring, he twitched in his sleep for about 30 minutes, and I fed Millie once. I was awake from around 3am until after 6am.

Those kind of nights make me insane...I mean really insane! I don't even know why I ever layed down. But, I survived and I'm sure glad not every night is like that. Sometimes Millie really gets going with dropping the binkey out of her mouth and crying for it, wow.

I need to start posting more photos and I still need to re-do my blogs look...it'll get done - one day!

I had a night like that last night! I seriously was up and down and tossing and turning all night. Awful... I feel your pain.

I have read a couple of Junie B. Jones books with my girls and they are SO cute!! I seriously love your laugh attacks. The one at Marcie's house was awesome. I'm laughing right now just thinking about it. I still remember the one you had in the Kearns Library when we were in 9th grade! Do you remember how we would rent the stupidest videos from the library? Didn't we get a pregnant exercise video once? Good times...

Wow, and I thought I had it bad getting up a couple times for the bathroom. I have the smallest bladder in the world. But apparently it could be worse :)
I;m so proud of you for having a garden. Chris and I have a spot for one in our backyard but I don't think it will get done this year. Who knows though, there's still time...
Have you ever read Judy Schachner's books about Skippy Jon Jones? Actually most of them come with a cd of her reading it. They are adorable. We bought them even though we have no little ones yet. We seem to do that a lot. Hmmm... does that mean we're like little ones?

I think your blog is beautiful! I love your banner!

(Cheers of happiness) To have a husband come home after being gone for a while is quite a wonderful thing.

(Pats on the back of sympathy) The sleepless nights of motherhood are quite a difficult thing. I totally hear you there. I don't ever remember hearing about this part when I was a little girl and so looking forward to being to be a mom. Sigh...Hang in there.

We love Junie B. Jones too.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your very nice comment. :)
