Hey Internet - hope you are doing well ... things here are still NUTZ! Yesterday Miss Tatum had a BREAK DOWN in the am. She did not sleep well Monday evening, you see she sucks her 2 middle fingers and when you have a stopped up nose, sucking those fingers is nearly impossible! Anyway long story short - THANK GOD that DH was at home to help me get her ready, because she was FREAKING OUT!!! Got her into the car for Day Care and she was asleep before I pulled out of the driveway ... so now what do I do?! With gas prices I can't just drive around ... um I'll just go get breakfast ... which by the way is way out of my way ... but I go get me 2 plain biscuit, and some of their great southern tea ... and start driving back the way I came from to take her to school. I drove about 7 miles under the speed limit - and I let her get a 40 minute nap in. When I dropped her off she was screaming mamma mamma as I was walking out - I wiped my eyes dry told her teacher call me if I need to come back and good luck. I got to the car ... cried my ARAS off and sucked it up, after all I have to go to work ... I didn't work Monday because I had to pick her up from school then. (With the not so busted busted lip) Okay the long story short isn't going to be so short after all ... DH goes to pick her up yesterday and they have ANOTHER injury/incident report for him to sign. Seems Tatum Bell fell off of the climbing matt and got some carpet burn on her forehead. (it must be getting better at least they didn't call us)
Wednesday is Daddy's day to take her to school and get her ready all by himself ... I go to work early on Monday and Wednesday (6:30) and he takes her to school. He called this am after drop off to tell me that this morning was one of the best mornings he had had with her, she was a JOY and very happy to be at school. MAYBE just MAYBE today will be a good day!
Okay now my visit ... Little Lisa (from my SnowBE's) came to visit us last night ... She wanted to see the new house and Tatum. She missed Tatum, she was already in bed ... but loved the house! She now lives in MD and her boyfriend flew here to surprise her ... she got into town on Monday and He surprised her that night at dinner ... her mom picked him up from the airport and he hid in the car for a while until he knew that she wouldn't be looking for him. How romantic! I love it, love that guys think of us like that ... she has been out and about traveling seeing a lot of our friends (other SnowBE's and people I don't know) and she wanted to skip home to see her mom and dad while she was down this way! Well ... get this everyone sit down ... Vinny (the boy friend) came to town JUST to ask her mom and dad for her hand in marriage ... he told my hubby that he was very nervous ... of course they both said yes, but ... they TOLD HER! Yep ... of course she asked and would have begged and pleaded, but they both told her that he asked. He was bummed ... and as we sat on our back deck last night laughing ... I haven't laughed that hard in a long time about how it was all ruined and how he would now have to pull off the engagement I was so happy for her! I think the FUNNIEST idea was him saying he was going to now pop the question at South of the Border, with signs saying Perdro says ... will you marry me! Hhaha I laughed so hard I almost cried! Anyway it will happen soon ... we all hope and I am glad that she stopped by to say hey and visit with us! He is a great guy and you can see the love he has for her in his eyes!
Okay this long post is almost over if you all are still with me ... Thank you and if you gave up reading I am sorry I was so long winded today ...
