I babysat my friends 3 year old today because she had a follow up series of appointments to her 5 year old diabetes diagnosis at the local Children's hospital. Her husband would not go and he expected her to manage the appointments with a 1 year old, a 3 year old and then the 5 year old patient. I don't know what is the matter with some men. Anyhow, he dropped her off to me (who took a day off basically to take care of her??) with nothing. Then I am so distracted right now that I never changed her pants until 6 hours later, and then they were overflowing with pea and poop. I don't know what the heck is the matter with me. Additional sad news was that her little guy also has Celiac disease in addition to the diabetes. I can't believe it. It is manageable, but geesh, trying to control the diabetes is hard enough. He has to have some carbs, and now that will be limited to gluten free carbs only. I just feel so bad for them.
Honestly between them, my Mom (who has been diagnosed with anxiety after several trips to the ER and a ton of testing), and my nephew losing his Dad all in the last 30 days, I just feel weighted down with the impossibility of adequately supporting each of them. I know that the lord does not give you more than you can handle, but I am digging deep right now.

Yes! We went to Black Angus and I ate my little heart out! And I drank a whole 32 oz margarita by myself! I couldn't believe it.

I had fun with chu!

Big hugs Tracey, I know you must feel overwhelmed. You are one tough cookie though, and your faith will see yo through.

Hopefully my internet situation at home will resolve itself shortly because I try to get my DisDiva fix almost every night and fail. B!
How sweet! My BFF met her DH on the first day of college when we all moved into the dorms. Maybe he'll be a keeper!?!

Steph!!!! Good luck on the Price is Right! My mother went to a taping years ago. Do you have your I *heart* Drew shirt ready to wear? Did you take a gift for Drew? Jump around and act like a fool so that you can win a car (or a lovely dinette set )


Not much happening here. Nathan had an 'autistic' day yesterday-toe walking, repetitive language, lining things up, moving stuff from one box to another while 'in the zone'. I hope he has a better day today. The video I sent to the autism center last night was awful, but that might be good. Maybe they will have suggestions to help me help him. (I upload 3 videos a week, and they help me come up with strategies to make things better and help him talk more. It's part of the research project, and I will be doing it for 3 months.)

Nolan has discovered that if he climbs on top of the table, he can turn the lights on and off. I told Stacie on FB yesterday, that I'm going to end up in the ER many times with him. He's 'all boy' as they say.

I made another pampered chef recipe for dinner last night. It was the taco ring (Stacie says it's her DS18's favorite). It was so yummy! DH had 3rds!

I hope everyone has a great day. Talk with you all later.

Good morning my favorite Divas!

I found you! I haven't had a chance to read back but I'll try to catch up tonight. Hope everyone is well and that you all had a great weekend!

We got back from Seattle/Victoria last night and all I have to say is I LOVED Victoria. Such a beautiful city, flowers everywhere, very friendly people, and would be great for a romantic getaway. We did and saw a lot and we are all very tired this morning. It might take most of the week to catch up but it was so worth it to visit Victoria!

I'll post pictures later on my FB account later.

Have a great Tuesday!

Yay for Canadian vacations We actually had our honeymoon 18 years ago in Victoria, so it has a special place in my heart. It is very beautiful there - especially in the summer when the flowers are all in bloom. Glad you had a nice time!

I'm being a lazy bunny right now. Could not get up this morning. so have been working at home (although right now Ms. Sally is plowing my farm). Now I have to put on makeup and get dressed for work.

Tracey: that was so sweet of you to take your friend's child so she could go to the appt. I often ask myself what are men thinking (don't answer that)

Steph: good luck on the Price is Right and great job on the birthday!

Dawn: my friend, you never cease to amaze me.

Everyone else--hope you're having a great Tuesday.

Hi Steph! First off, happy, happy birthday to Selena!
Second, I am sorry you are having to go through that surgery. I hope things go smoothly, and the recovery isn't too bad.
And finally, good luck on the Price is Right. How fun!!!

But instead I was told about a day after the conference was cancelled that I was selected (along with 24 other military members) to go on the Veteran's Day Price Is Right that will be filmed tomorrow. Sorry for rambling. Kind of weird that they film the show 2 months before it will be aired.
and Happy Birthday to Selena!

Good luck on the Price is Right! My coach back in HS went on & won a car. But she didn't get it & couldn't tell anyone about it until the show aired.

Tracey - you are so nice for babysitting!!! I don't know about some men either, it seems like some just don't get the "dad" thing - esp when they are baby/toddler age.
