so here's the story of valentine's day 09! ha! hope ur ready,,,,
I woke up around 11,thanks to hubby letting me sleep in :) ,went downstairs,and gave hubby his presents,a card from the boys and one from me,and a little box of chocolates (funds were limited this year!) and gave the boys their presents,,a couple heart shaped little baskets with silly little books/toys in them and a big thing of bath toys from "cupid". Keith had to show off by giving me a laptop earlier this month <3 Then I made a yummy breakfast of sunny side up eggs, maple-brown sugar glazed bacon,and whole wheat pancakes with heart shaped butter <3 We ate,played with the boys,and cuddled until naptime,,We put Kruise and Noah to bed,"snuggled"hehe,then Keith took a nap,I wanted to,but the boys took turns being aunry,so i gave up,and took a shower instead..Everyone woke up a few hours later,to a yummy early dinner of heart-shaped pizzas with heart shaped cheese and pepperoni,and for kruise heart shaped turkey and brocolli florettes pizza,,we ate,played some more,gave the boys their baths,got them in bed,and then Keith's mom showed up! He surprised me by getting her to come babysit for the night so we could go out and play! woohoo! We ended up going to Dave and Busters,we walked in and looked around,then went to the front to buy coins to play the games,at that time,two cops came in and shut the doors going in or out into the mall and said no one could come in or go out..people and cops were running around all over the place,,we were a little freaked out,and some cool girl that worked there finally told us what happened after some begging :) someone pulled a gun in the food court! WTH! that mall has always been nice,and more of a tourist attraction,so it was a little weird they had all these crazy ghetto people running around in there,,the crowd that night was soo not the norm! well,after THAT excitement, we hit the bar,,I drank 2 of a little concoction called a "walk the plank",and thats exactly what i felt like i did after the first HALF of one! ha! Keith doesnt drink,so im sure i was a fun sight,,we played games and just had fun..we were cuddly and cute like when we first started dating <3 we stayed until about 12:30 am and went by krystals for some good late night food on the way home :) when we finally got home and walked in,two little boys were wide awake! It was 1:00 by then,and these are kids who are NEVER up pat 7:30-8:00 at the latest! Kruise woke up around 11 we found out,and screamed until his granny went and got him,,so he stayed up until we got home,and then passed out,,same with noah! poor gran gran will never come back! We finally got in bed,"snuggled" some more and went to sleep,,,it was a great night!
my sister called me last night and told me my dad "suddenly and painlessly" lost 1/3 of the vision in his right eye,,its like he sees a black blob and everything else is fuzzy..i immediately researched it online,and all signs pointed to a mini-stroke,,i was upset,,i cried,,i was up all night worrying about my dad,,he lives 8 hours away from both of us,and is all alone ,and not the youngest man around either,,honestly,im scared he'll die all alone in his house,with just his dog as a witness,,i desperately wished my mom hadn't moved us off from him so long ago,but then i wouldnt have keith or my beautiful boys,,i sometimes think about moving back there,,well,the good news is,he called my sis after he went to the doc today,and found out he hasnt had a stroke,he said as u get older sometimes the "gel" in ur eye seperates from your retina,so his retina is still intact,which is good,,they said that his vision should hopefully get a little better as it "settles" but it is just something he'll have to grow accustom to,which is the sucky part,,my dad is active,he loves to run around,,he's almost 65 and bought himself a scooter to run around on last summer,,he said he prob wont be able to ride it anymore :( i hope a miracle happens and he's able to keep on living like he always has,,i guess this just shook me up,to see how fragile life is,it made me think things can and will happen to ur parents,,they're not as strong as u might build them to be,,my dad is still a superhero in my eyes,,
today i was exercising on my body/balance ball and Kruise decided it looked like fun,,he went and got his little thomas the train rubber ball and rolled it over near me,and sat on it,laid on it,bounced on it,,it was hilarious,,he fell off it a million times,but still thought it was great.after that i was running with the wii fit,and he put his arms up for me to pick him up,so i did and he made me carry him the whole 3 miles,he laughed the whole time,.then when i was doing crunches he came and sat on my tummy,,so i did crunches and then pelvic thrusts with my 30 lb lil man on my tummy,,i think he has a future as my personal trainer,,,man,am i sore!
after 2 weeks of no naps (argh) kruise finally decides he needs to sleep,so he took a 5 HOUR nap yesterday,,i guess he was playing catch-up...i just hope he keeps taking them,,,he's yelling at me from his crib right now,,oh i hope he sleeps!
we found an apartment,we have no more debt(excluding stupid student loans,,ughh),,now to get a paid for car,a few things we need for the house,some emergency cash stowed away, and we're outta here!! HOORAYYy!!! that day just can't come soon enough!!
