Where do I begin?

4/24/10 Alaina feeding Bella

It's been awhile since my last blog. I don't even know where to begin. Last weekend we had Ethan over. He was going to spend one night, but wanted to go to church with us and who can say no to that :) Alaina and Bella love having him around as do Matt and I. He cracks me up.

Monday, I got my bloodwork done for surgery next Monday. Anne watched the girls for me while I did that and went to the gym. Thanks again Anne! Then we took the girls out to dinner, since Matt worked late. After that we went shopping and I got some really cute items for the girl's room and what not. It was a great Monday.

Yesterday, Anne watched the girls for me once again, so I could get the Ok from my PCP to get surgery. She said that my bloodwork was normal and I was good to go on monday. I'm so nervous though.

My dad had the same surgery and got staff infection :/ The staff ate away many vertebrae, causing him to get a metal bar in his back. Anyone would be nervous after seeing your father go through all that as a child. I waited long enough though. Can't afford anymore nerve damage when I have my girls to care for. Please keep me in your prayers. Thank you so much.

After my appt. I pushed the girls around the neighborhood with Anne for three miles. It was a nice workout and both of the girls fell asleep shortly after we started, which made things much easier on me. Matt and I ended the night watching American Idol and Glee. :)

Today, I worked my butt off! I cleaned out Ethan's old room and put everything on the livingroom stage, so we can start working on making it the girl's room. When that was done, I cleaned up, did the laundry, dishes and what not. The coffee Matt makes is sooo strong lol! I felt like I was on a sugar rush. I'm glad that I got so much done though.

When Matt came home he just looked at me like I was crazy. He was a bit upset that I didn't just wait for him, so I didn't screw up my back even more. If I did, at least they can fix it along with the other discs on monday ;)

After Zumba with Anne, Matt got right to work. He got the computer set up in the livingroom and now the speakers work!!!! I'm thrilled, because we tried for the longest time to figure out what happened. Matt thinks the Comcast guy screwed in the one cable wrong, because it was in there backwards.

Matt also sanded down all the wood and now we can start painting tomorrow. I'm so excited to get it all done. We still have a long way to go, but the journey has begun :) Goodnight everyone!
