I am going to admit that I have been very slack on my blog here lately. I stay pretty busy and this is not on the top of my list of daily tasks.
It has really been a whirlwind past few days. Um, okay, Saturday I put my hand through a window and slit my wrist. Okay, before you all freak out, it was not a suicide attempt, but rather bad judgement on my part. I am okay though. Rick and I were hanging Christmas wreaths on the 6 windows on our front porth. In order to hang the wreaths I had to push the top window out slightly to slide the wreath's hook onto the bottom window. All was going well until I got to the 4th window. I barely put any pressure on it and it just gave way. My whole arm went through it. When I pulled back to survey the damage my wrist was bleeding terribly. My first thought was that I had sliced my main artery and I was sure to die, but after Rick calmed me down I saw that I had indeed done a number on myself but missed the artery by less than 1 cm. I am a truely blessed person. The bleeding finally stopped and after we had time to calm down and think logically I decided not to get stitches. So I bandaged myself up real good. I had decided if the cuts were not growing back together like they were supposed to then I would have it looked at. They are already much better. I was without a doubt a bit shook up.
I managed to regain my composure that evening and we went to the annual Williamston Christmas Park Lighting Ceremony. My wrist was in really bad pain but Arianna had really been looking foward to going and I couldn't bare to let her down. We all had a great time. You can view the photos of the event here.
Um, let me see.....Oh, we got our Christmas tree yesterday. Arianna was so excited about helping us decorate it. This is the first year she has been able to really be hands on with it. She helped last night until she couldn't keep her little eyes open any longer. We really had a nice family time together. We even had homemade hot cocoa and apple cider. I felt a little bit like a member the Cleaver family.
Well, that's all I have to say about that. I will try my best to post more often.
This year was a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had 2 dinners to attend so we could be with both sides of the family. Needless to say we were stuffed. We did have a wonderful time visiting and spending time with family we do not get to see that much. I have posted the photos here of both events. There are very few of my family's dinner because I left my camera at our office. We stopped by to pick it up before our next dinner so we could have some pics of at least one get together. Thanks to my mom for the few pics I do have.
Okay, I know that I have been a little slack on the blog. Please forgive me, but I have been extremely busy these past few days. I am just going to try to catch you all up on a few things.
Okay, We are sick again. We cannot seem to stay well (sorry, bad confession). Arianna was the leader of the pack when she started throwing up early this morning. Poor little thing. I think she has thrown up more in her 2 years on earth than I have my entire life. I just can't seem to keep her from catching all those little stomach viruses. Savannah seems okay right now I think...no throwing up, and just a little constipation. Of course, that is not unusual for babies. Oh, Rick is fine.....like always :).
Okay, next I have to give you all a laugh at my expense. I think I did the other day the dumbest thing I have EVER done in my entire life. I was preparing leftovers for supper so I needed to heat up the mashed potatoes from the night before. I had them in a pot in the fridge. About the time I got them out I heard Arianna scream she had to go potty. Here's the funny part.... I threw the pot in the microwave and cut it on so my taters could warm. Dummy here was not thinking that pots are made totally of metal. After I was in the bathroom with Arianna I heard Rick scream my name REALLY loud. I came running in there and about the time I saw the look on his face I realized what I had just done, and the burning electrical smell was a big hint too. I do not think Rick will ever let me live that one down. Goods news..... the microwave is not ruined to my surprise.
Lastly, I am 99.9% sure I got a job today. I had a wonderful interview with the lady. She really confused me though. She told me she was going to call me later today so I could fill out papers. Does that sound like I got the job to you? Well, if it is God's will then I will get it.
Alrighty guys, that's about it for me right now. I will be back for more later and some updates on the job status.
Okay, I have a job interview today and I am a little nervous. I always get nervous before an interview, but then again doesn't everyone? I want to give a big shout out to Meg and Ken for referring me to this job. I really appreciate it and I love you guys. I am hoping this is going to just be a temporary fix until our business really lifts off. I can feel it happening too, and soon!
And in bigger news......the moment we have all been waiting for.....drumrole please.........SAVANNAH IS CRAWLING!!! Okay, so maybe I am more excited than anyone. She has been so close or so long now and she has finally gotten the hang of it. In just a few days she will be going more than just a few strokes, and I will be running to keep up with her too, oh joy. Yea for Savannah!
Since we have been a little slow at the office lately Rick and I have found a very fun, but addictive game to help you with your typing skills. Since we have started playing this I have gone from 60 wpm all the way to 80-85 wpm. I warn you, once you start you may have a hard time stopping (or maybe it's just me). Anyway, just try it here.
I took down my motherhood blog not too long ago because I did not feel like it was getting the response I wanted it to. I just kind of felt like I was wasting my time writing it. Since a lot of people do read my main blog I figured I would just write about my girls in it! I just wanted to write a few things about the progress they are both making in their development.
We will start with Savannah, my youngest. She will be 8 months old in a couple of weeks and I cannot believe it! It really does seem like yesterday when she was born, or better yet, it seems like just yesterday when I was pregnant! This has been a very fast era in my life. Not only is my little baby growing fast but so is my sweet little toddler. Anyway, Savannah has been rolling over and sitting up for quite some time now, but now she has just about mastered the art of crawling....yikes! That means I will have not just 1, but 2 to chase around. This should be fun for me and anyone else that ever watches them. She is an excellent scooter. By that I mean the can scoot on her belly just about anywhere she wants to go. Now granted, she scoots backwards, but it's better than being stationary in her eyes. But as far as her crawling goes she has got the position down pat, but she just needs to put those chubby little legs and arms in motion. She has 6 teeth now, and has moved on to stage 3 baby food for the most part (I think she could actually handle a t-bone, but I am not gonna push it)! I wish she would just slow down and stay a baby a while. I already miss the little infant stage which she left a few months ago. Do they ever stop growing up? I guess I know the answer to that, but sometimes I wish I could freeze time right over the cutest parts of their lives!
Now let's talk about Arianna. She is indeed my little fiery 2 year old! She is wonderful. I could not ask for a better toddler. I know she is 2 and her attitude and personality are going through some critical changes as she grows which is the cause of some of her rare but typical behavior. She has become very contradictory lately. She is definitely a very independent little girl. If she has her mind made up about something then that is the way it is going to be. She is not like that all the time, but when she gets on one of her kicks you can tell her something till you are blue in the face and she will tell you it is not true. It is not frustrating to me though. I know it is just a key to her development and she will eventually get tired of arguing with truth. It may annoy some people, but I think it's kinda cute. She is talking a mile a minute now. Yesterday she actually said a 22 word sentence. Actually it was a run-on sentence, but we havn't gotten into grammar and composition with her yet. Anyway, it was astounding to see her put that many words together. She toook a short break in the middle to compose herself I suppose and then continued on. She is such a sweet little angel and the prettiest little 2 yea old on in the world. I'm not just bias, it's true! I absolutely dread when she becomes and teenager and starts dating, and Savannah too! We are going to have fun weeding through the all suitors. Oh, but we will (Emily lets out an evil laugh).
Well, I guess that is about all for now. There is absolutely no way I could ever write all the things they are doing. Just as I think I am finished they will surprise me with something else. I will to keep all of you as up to date on my sweeties as I can. Check out the most recent pictures of them here. They each have their own album.
Okay, so I am "testing" out Word Press blogging right now trying to figure out how I like it and if I want to switch. Normally is is by invite only but since I downloaded the new blogger friendly browser Flock I can get it. I am hooked on Blogger though. I get in my comfort zone and I just can't get out.
We will see how it goes. It is in expermentation phase now, but if I decide to change I will be sure to post and tell you so you can change it in your blogrole.
I am branching out into some new forms of revenue building. I am starting to list items on Ebay. I have one auction going right now of some baby clothes that both my girls have outgrown. It has only been listed for about 2 hours and I already have a bid. Be sure to check it out here. Wish me luck!
We have had a very slow past 9 days at the office. This is not a good thing because we have not been in business long enough to afford any slow times. I know that is to be expected since we are new, but we are praying that business picks back up very soon. We are really having to trust on God for his help with everything. He is going to take care of us, and we know that. It is time like this when your faith has to kick in full throtle. You cannot constantly think about you situation and wonder how bills are going to get paid. We just have to know that it is in God's hands now as long as we continue to give to Him.
God has so richly blessed us and I know that he will continue to. I have no doubt in my mind that Rick and I are totally in God's will with what we are doing, so he will provide. But for all reading this please lift a prayer to God for us.
