It was windy and a bit cooler today, but still kinda nice. Dave let me sleep in, and then the kids and I went to Malinta to pick up a check from a friend, so that I could close out her Discovery Toys party!! The kids played with her little boy Luke, and his cousins that were there. They had such a good time. And it was nice to just sit and visit with my friend Kris. It's a comfortable place to be, and it's nice and quiet there, kinda in the country.
On our way out there though, we stopped at a Dairy Bar, and had lunch and then ice cream.
I'm lovin this weather. This evening after dinner, the kids wanted to run around in their underwear after they put lotion on their arms and legs (they said they were itchy, so we started the lotion thing, and now they don't want to stop LOL) and they danced around the living room for an hour!!! It was nice to have the windows open and listen to the rain outside. We watched the lightning (Jesus' flashlight). They are sleeping good tonight.
I even have a little sun on my face from yesterday!! Feelin good!!!

Today was such a FUN day. The trio and I met with Amy and Calvin and two of her "charges" today, and walked down to Rita's to get some ice cream!! The kids had a BLAST. Amy and I really enjoyed ourselves too. It was nice to just walk and talk and let the kids play and have fun. I really really needed this sunshiny day!! Amy had to get back for one of her kids to be picked up, so the trio and I went back home. We didn't really want the nice day to end, so..........we went home and packed a picnic!! They've been SO wanting to go on a picnic. We've just been waiting for the weather to get nicer. SO, we went home and packed a picnic, and went down to the park. We played on the swings and slides. We walked down to the store to get stuff for sandwiches. We ate, and played some more. It was a great! great!! day!!!! I feel like I'm alive again since being home from the hospital. The days since I've come home have been SO cloudy and rainy. I haven't wanted to do anything. But it was nice today to finally get out. I kept having that song run through my head "coming out of the dark. I finally see the light now......."SUNSHINE IS SOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!

My kids have this fixation with brains! I thinkit's from watching Jimmy Neutron. They know he has a BIG brain. And that the brain is in the head. SO, I say all of that to tell you a few funnies........ Trevor was sitting on the potty the other day, and I went in to check and see if he was finished. And he told me "not yet" then he told me "my brain is KILLING me!" I assume that meant he had a heahache. LOL Then, on our way home from church this morning we walked outside, and he hurried to put his hat on and said "ooohh, my brain is cold!" On a "make mommy feel bad" note, I went to a ladies retreat this weekend. It was just one night!!!! I was having a good time. We got down to Columbus, and checked into the hotel, and I called home. Dave informed me that Dylan had asked him "where's mommy?" And he told him that mommy went to a retreat with Brenda, Chris and Jill, and that she would be home tomorrow! Dylan then said (and remember, I have had LOTS of dr.s appt.s lately, and it seems to them that mommy is gone a lot) "Mommy is Gone and Gone and Gone, and it makes me Nervous!!" Of course Dave couldn't help but laugh a little, and then Dylan got mad. SO, when I talked to D on the phone, I told him I loved him, and asked him how he was doing, and he said "Mommy, I'm nervous and Angry." I asked him why. He told me "because I said you're gone and gone and gone,and it makes me nervous,and daddy laughed, and I got angry." :( Bout broke my heart. When I called to say goodnight to them all, he asked me again where I was, so I told him. He said "But you better hurry mommy, it's getting dark!" UGH. I don't think I'll go anywhere for a while without my babies!

Today me and the Trio went out to lunch and shopping. It was crazy as usual, but fun. We had a good day. First we ate at Big Boy, always a favorite for us! The kids were good, and did some good drawings while we waited for our food. I think Dylan and Abbey both will be good artists. They both love to copy what they see in a drawing, and they both love music, and love to dance. Trevor, well, he mostly loves to tackle. LOL We then went to Walmart, and were only there about an hour, and had to make trips to the bathrooms THREE times!!! SHEESH Between them potty training, and me with Crohns Disease, we sure do have to go Potty a lot. THEN we went to Aldi. And of course, one more bathroom trip while we were there. But when we left, we needed to go left out into traffic (had to cross over to the opposite side) and the cars just kept coming and coming. So, the boys rolled down their windows and started yelling "STOP CARS!" But the cars didn't stop! So they said "maybe we should ALL do it!" So, we rolled down the windows and we all four yelled "STOP CARS STOP!" And wouldn't you know it, just then there was a break in traffic, so of course they thought we worked a miracle. We had fun though. It was a good day!!

What's the "sweetest thing I've ever heard?" "I'LL MISS YOU WHILE YOU'RE GONE MOMMY." wow. I have had ALOT of dr.s appointments lately, and this week in particular. Well, today is Friday, and the last one (of FOUR) this week. And the worst. I've been getting pretty good news at every appt. Nothing devastating. But today, I had to have a breast biopsy. OUCH. We prayed as a family last night, and the boys were curious as to why mommy was going to the doctor so much lately. So, I told them the best way you can tell a four year old, what the dr. had to "check" today. They were both showing me their chests saying, "look ma! no lumps!" ha ha (well, maybe not in those words.....do you remember that gravy commercial?) Anyway, They had to kiss and hug and say "I love you " several times. But what touched my heart the most this morning for some reason, was "I'll Miss You While You're Gone Mommy!" And the second sweetest thing? "Welcome home mommy, come on in!!"

Ok, at the sake of embarassing the snot out of myself, not knowing who will be reading this. I'm going to tell a Trevor Story. I was getting them ready this morning to go to my friend Amy's house. She watches them for just a few hours for me on Wednesdays, just to give Dave and I time alone, or for me to clean, nap, run errands.......whatever I want. OK? So, we're running late this morning, and I had just gotten them all ready, and in their coats, and ran back to my bedroom to get myself dressed. Trevor walks in in the middle of that process.....he's always VERY complimentary to me. He will tell me I look pretty, or that he likes my new shoes, dress, whatever.....But this morning,...........and here's the embarassing part........I was putting on my bra!!! Well, it was a (ugh, can't believe I'm telling this) flowery one, and Trevor walks in and says "Oh Mommy!! I LOOOVE your Booby Diaper!!" I'm laughing so hard writing this I can hardly type. I laughed and said "my booby diaper?" cuz I wasn't sure that I heard him right, and he got this silly grin on his face like "well, that's probably not the right word is it," and started laughing too!! But then repeated it, because he knew he had said something extremely funny at this point, and wanted more laughs!!!
