I'm wiped out! I was up until 4 last night talking on the phone with Emily. Hush, Kelly...no comment on it! It's obviously exhausting to be up that late but so good to just be able to talk without interruption, the most interruption I get is Emma needing to nurse and so at times Em has to hear my little piggy as she calls Emma (lol) but otherwise it's just the two of us talking, laughing, crying....I love these moments. Now I had to be up early this morning and it HURT...I had to be up at 7:30! Ouch! I had my friends son coming over for a few hours. She had her glucose test this morning, her husband actually dropped her little boy off (he's 2) about 8:30. I had rotting pumpkins (already bagged up) and a full trash can to empty and take down. Luck would have it the trashman was picking up today so I just dropped the bags off at the back of the truck as he instructed me and upstairs I came. I did a few last minute clean ups and then laid on the couch for about 30 minutes, then thought "I should vaccuum"...so I did! I did the living room and dining room and cleaned up all the bird seed that our messy bird feels the need to throw out of his cage. He drives me up the wall with his constant singing (that lovely phrase...sings like a canary, well ours is one and he's loud and obnoxious!) it's insanely correct. The boys had popcorn on Saturday and 4 little boys 4,5,6,& 7 are messy popcorn eaters, so that had to be cleaned up. Oh yes..Saturday I had 4 little boys over here. Friday our friends son, B, spent the night and about 2 in the afternoon our downstairs neighbor came up to see if the boys could go down and play in their apartment, since we already had a visitor I told her (mom) that he (T) could stay up here and play. I took the boys both home about 4:40 before heading to the store to pick up a few odds and ends that I needed. So anyways....I do have laundry I MUST get going today on, but otherwise things are pretty clean around here. Jacob took out all the recycling today, I'm going to have to have him taking it out more than once a week, we just end up with way too much recycling and he has to take often 5 or more trips. We recycle everything we possibly can. It limits on the trash which is great but the recycling gets to being a mess in the corner we have our container in (which isn't near big enough).
So....anyways I'm going on virtually no sleep. I'm tired, but at this point I'm scared if I slept I'd never want to get up, so my "GOAL" is to get to bed early. ROFL...if Emily doesn't call! Oh not sure if I shared or not, but we got Vonage! Yes you can get it in Germany too! We got a Kansas number knowing we'll most likely be moving back there when the times comes for us to leave Germany. My parents have called, Emily's called, Tami's called...amazingly my inlaws have not called. Of course if she's not checked her email and seen we have the new no, then she doesn't know. Which is ok since Chad's out in the field right now anyways. Oh and last night while the boys were talking to my dad....my friend M called from Hawaii! :) :) I will probably call her tomorrow morning.
Ok so the pictures are of the infamous hedge hog that Chad caught. Oh that man! LOL There's a few other pictures thrown in too! :) I think I may go ahead and lay down with Emma and just snuggle with her!
Oh before I go! Jacob, that boy ROCKS!!! He swept and swiffered (wet jet) the whole stairwell. He cleaned the walls and the stair railing, and he swept away the leaves that were in front of our building! He asked for $1.00 to do it! I gave him $10.00! He's asked to clean the laundry room, but we have 8 apartments in this stairwell so one of them can do the laundry room, although I just cleaned it and the basement so what needs to be done isn't much! I have a good boy and I KNOW how blessed I am!
