It never fails, we plan a trip and Owen gets sick. Yep, we planned a trip to INDY, pretty last minute too. We both took Thursday and Friday off work and headed out Wend. We dropped the dog off at Kelly's in Columbia City and got on I-69 and the projectile puking began...Oh what a treat. Owen got sick on the way there once we got there and the next morning. So no fun for us. I was on the phone with the doctor and hunting down a gas station to get some Gatoraide to ensure he did not get any more dehydrated then he already was. So I asked the front desk if we could cancel the next night and check out to go home on Thursday. They said sure (and ended up charging us for it...unfinished business there), so we headed home on Thursday afternoon. Owens puking stopped but he ended up getting a stuffy nose. We stopped at a mall in Carmel so Wes could get his computer fixed at the APPLE Store. Then we stopped and got Sasha and ended up home around midnight. We figured since we were both off on Friday we would go to Health Works in South Bend. It was fun. Owen played a lot, we also took him through the art gallery at the convention center and to the mall to play..not to mention the Chocolate Factory so he could play on the new little tree house they have in there. Tried to get pictures but of course my camera died..this is why I do not post as many pictures lately..my camera is crap. OK, then Sat. we went to Tara and Darins and Owen played with the kids. We also did our usual Saturday grocery shopping. Then today we mostly just stayed home and relaxed. We did go out to eat this morning and we went to the mall. Owen's eye started to goo..its pretty gross..green goo..Oye Vey.
I have been looking for a purse with no luck. I just want a really pretty purse for spring, that has lots of pockets, big enough to throw some diapers in and a small thing of wipes. I have been on a search now for a while. I almost got a Vera Bradley with is a really cool purse but I am kinda up in arms if that is my style..so I hesitated. Then Saturday I went into The Natural Way in Granger. Its a kick ass store for babies..its all designer everything from cribs to diaper bags. Well I found a diaper bag by Petunia Pickle Bottom that I LOVED it is everything I have been looking for. So I went online and found on on ebay for a little cheaper then they wanted at The Natural Way and I got it. It is a serious treat for myself but I LOVE IT and can not wait to get it.
My neck has been hurting a lot lately. I have been stressed. It makes me sad that Owen is already ONE and it makes me happy. It just seemed like I brought him home and now he is walking. It really is overwhelming. He is such a sweet kid. He has to wave and say hi to everyone..it kinda ticks me off when people ignore him. I am sure to tell him loud enough that he is very nice and polite even if other people are not. I do not want him to think he is the one with the problem, because it is not him but the millions of rude people out there who can not even tell a baby hi. It seriously amazes me. I realized how freaking rude and inconsiderate people are when I was pregnant. I plan on teaching Owen that he should always be kind and respectful especially to women!!!!
Well the weather has been wonderful. Owen and I were outside a lot today walking around looking at my bloomed crocuses and looking at the daffodils and tulips that are starting to emerge out of the ground. It is so cool. I need to do some serious yard work. Monday I am going to call and see how much a spring clean up would cost us. Hopefully affordable. I am going to do some planting this summer. I am ready for a nice yard again. It was so hard to get out there last year because Owen was so young and I was trying to adjust to work..which I still am..I think that has something to do with that darn lump in my throat that keeps coming and going. Anyway, I am looking forward to what is to come weather wise and so thankful to see green grass again!!!!!!!!
PS Next weekend I am going to start going to church again. I need to feed my soul spiritually. I am looking forward to it.
