    AND it's another lovely and cool day today!! I'm so excited that it's getting into the 60's at night again! I can finally sleep well.

    OK, this is how bad it must have been...after just 1, count them, 1 good night sleep without tossing and turning due to the heat, then a cool morning with lower humidity, I had people coming up to me yesterday asking why I looked pretty, what did I do different... My answer? A Good night's sleep and I could finally do my hair for the first time in like 3 months :rotfl2:

    Wow, I must have been really looking rough!! :eek:

    I so know what you mean!! This humidity kills me!! I've sweated off my makeup by the time I get to work. . .I dropped DS off yesterday, and Mom said, "Have you been crying?" Um, no. Just the humidity tracking mascara down my face!!!

    Glad it's a cooler morning for you!!!

    OH my gosh, my big kids are getting harder and harder to wake up... they go to bed by 10pm (based on sports events, homework...that is there usual bedtime...) They don't have to get up til 7am as bus doesn't come til 8am... We will be having a family meeting tonight about it taking 30 minutes to get them up and moving... this will stop today! I'll wake you up twice... you over sleep, you are in big trouble! I think DS13 is going through a growth spurt because his emotions have been all over the place...so I'm trying to give him a little lee-way.. DD has a track meet today, so I'm sure she is trying to get that little extra rest before running 3 miles at full force.... but getting nasty at me doesn't work!!!

    Well I'm up still feeling yucky but DH was grumpy so I slept for maybe 10 mins between the phone calls. off to see what I can accomplish.

    Nancy that's how my house was this am. plus Levi feeling yucky I'm sure it's allergies golden rod is full force here right now. but it is still no excuse for causing greif in the am's. Our bedtime is 8 light's out at 8:30 at the latest bus comes at 6:54 so they are up at 6.

    My darling baby bunny is off for her first day of 4th grade. I didn't cry this year. She was very excited to get back. Her backpack/bag was FULL today, she's got loads of stuff to leave for her teacher and classroom.

    I'm going to work on my resort swap today, and do a little laundry. I think I need a second cup of coffee ;)

    It's BEAUTIFUL here! Dry and cool, perfect for my stupid hormones!

    Deb, Happy Anniversary! 20 years is quite an accomplishment.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Getting better- we were worried last night because it was swollen but it is hurting less today and the swelling is down- I need to take it easy over the next few days or I believe the swelling will come up again. I think I just have a really deep bruise in my large toe- so some icing and heat therapy.

    Well, take it easy so you don't start swelling again!

    She doesn't have a problem with me calling her Bunny. I call her all kinds of "pet" names. I think she's used to it.

    I still haven't heard anything about Baby! I'm dying to know what it is!

    So Ash, how did the interview go?

    As for nicknames, my kids have them.. I referred to J as PJ now since that is what we call her here... of course no one can figure out why we call her that.. .
    DS13 is his name the man...
    DS8 is Bear

    my kids said they were embarrassed for DsS15 yesterday.. he was running for a TD, the only one our team had (a QB run)...anyway, his mom was standing up screaming at the top of her lungs, "Go BABY, Go BABY, Go, there you go.. go BABY".. DH said it reminded everyone in the stands of an X rated movie... Anyway, DS13 was at the concession stand which is 50+ yds from the stands and could hear her all the way over there..actually had the staff in the concessions asking who was that "loud mouth".. Of course, DS13 doesn't miss a lick.. and says "oh, just ..........".. and everyone shook their head and said, "oh, figures, always making a spectical of herself!"..... LOL DS13 was telling me about it on the way to soccer and asked that I please do NOT sound like that.
