Catching up

Jessica hasn’t been feeling 100% today – last night when we put her to bed we noticed a runny nose and chalked it up to playing outside alot and going to bed a bit late. But she woke up with it and then I noticed we were clean out of diapers. Seriously. I’ve been changing diapers for over 2 1/2 years now and I still refuse to put the dumb things on my radar. Some how if I don’t acknowledge the need then obviously it’s not there. Maybe I do live in Spain and I’m dreaming today??
Oh wait. So we went out for an emergency diaper run, again, and bought some over the counter runny nose stuff which is at least helping her outlook on life. She still has a runny nose but not as bad as it was and she’s not screaming as we put her to bed tonight because she can’t breathe. Always a bonus.
Although it was nice to rock her to sleep after all the flailing and crying was done – she got all heavy and relaxed and closed her eyes. It’s been so long since I’ve done that. She’s such a trooper, such a big girl – always ready for the next thing that I absolutely love a glimpse of what was … baby Jessica. We’re no longer a toddler – she’s a little girl now. It just goes so fast.
Which means I need to seriously get caught up in her scrap book or ditch it all and find a program I like digitally – but so far, in ALL the programs available, I’m not impressed. Although I did preview iLife 08 and although I don’t have a mac (yet), if they got better printing quality with their books I might justify buying one to save all the other money on scrap booking. Which would be breaking even, so really I’d be saving time – and lets be honest here – thats what matters.
Speaking of time – I finally finished planting the new landscaping which was a job but I’m glad it’s done – tomorrow I’ll lay the wood chips and then put some more photos up. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. It’ll be a miracle if the weed preventing underlay actually works – here’s to hoping.

  1. Vick’s Vapor Rub on the chest works wonders also for Jessica…can hardly wait to see the finished landscaping too!!

  2. yeah – we’ve been using vicks but she hates the stuff. And it doesn’t do too many wonders for us. But we did use it at bed time yesterday. Just checked on her – she’s sleeping and breathing well.
