Riding in the van...

Why is it that simply sitting in a vehicle for more then an hour makes you extremely tired? I wasn't even driving. Yet, here I sit exhausted, though come to think of it my hubby did wake me up around 3am because he was not feeling well. He looked bad too, sorry honey, you were pale. Then he had left his phone at work and the lady called to let us know it was there so we didn't get worried looking for it, which was nice, but at 6:40am we are all sleeping! She said, "I figured you would be awake by now with all the kids." I groggily said, "They're all still asleep." And we did just get out of the pool after swimming for a little over an hour, we needed to do something because we had been sitting ALL. DAY. LONG. I'm hoping we all sleep good tonight and that they sleep in...here's to hoping!

On a side note: J ordered me a water sling. Just a little background on this. When GG was almost 2yrs old she took swimming lessons and Monkey was just a baby. There was a mom at the pool with a water sling and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. At that time we were dirt poor, being a stay at home mom straight out of college (2 kids 18 months apart) with a hubby still in college doesn't leave much for spending money let alone groceries! I had won a free sling from the local LLL and was so grateful for it. Needless to say, I have wanted one ever since and every time I had mentioned it to J he always said something to the effect "why do you need one" so I just dropped it. When he ordered me it I was bouncing off the walls happy. It came so I was able to use it tonight in the pool love, love, love it!

Oh, I like mine, but my little guy wants some freedom now days. Great for the shower though! Glad you are finally getting one!

Came over to let you know I greatly appreciated your kind words on my blog. I have been so overwhelmed by the amazing sweetness of so many - some who have never even met me. You truly brightened my day. Thank you.
