good day and tagged

Today was a pretty good day. I showered, read blogs, ran errands, spent some quality time with little Mark. I chopped his head off in the picture, but it wasn't easy taking a picture of him while he is laying on me. I got to feed him and cuddle with him. He was awake the whole loved that. While I was rocking him, it started raining...with LOUD thunder and lightning. I wanted to see it but I was holding him and he's all hooked up, so I just leaned way back in my chair to get a peek out the window. The nurses were all so excited about the rain. We always get excited when it rains's like a novelty...very fun!After I laid him back in his crib, I turned on his music fishies. He loves that thing and always stares at it as soon as you turn it on. It has been his favorite thing since he was first brought into the NICU. The only bummer part is that it belongs to the hospital and I haven't been able to find one for when he comes home. :o( Yesterday they didn't let him eat for 6 hours so they could give him this drink stuff that shows up in whatever test they were doing. They said it looked good. There was some dilation, but no kinks or pinching in his intestines. I'm happy about that! He was still awake when I left. I usually leave when he's sleeping or when Brek and Brittany are there. It was so hard to leave...I cried on my way out. I love him so much and I just want him home.
Look how big these cute kittens are! They love sleeping ontop of the couches. I got them all collars today. They can't be so sneaky anymore, because they are jingling all over the house. Actually it's making them crazy, but they will get use to it.
I also got my nails done today. It was loooong over-do. While I was there I got.........waxed!...there I said it! Now you know my hairy little secret. Oh my heck, does that hurt! I wanted to sink my face in a bowl of ice water. I'm still pink. Why are women so willing to take pain to look good?...just so dumb!
I got 4 letters from Chad today. He is doing so much better. It's hard of course, but he's doing well. They train guys for the Army and the Army National Guard there. The sergants favor the "real" army guys and give him crap for out performing them. He did say that he occasionally sees them smile when he does so good, but wont let him know he's doing good....gotta save face I guess. :o) My boy is AWESOME!
Okay...I was tagged...twice in fact. Here are the rules.

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether or not they have words, or even if they are not any good, but they must be songs you are really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal/blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they are listening to.
1. I can't unlove you - Kenny Rogers
2. Jesus, take the wheel - Carrie Underwood
3. Love me - Collin Raye
4. Don't forget to remember me - Carrie Underwood
5. Angels among us - Alabama
6. In my daughters eyes - Martina McBride
7. Grandpa - The Judds
I'm really not so good about remembering songs or who sings them. I just know I like a song when I hear it, then my brain lets go of the rest of that info. There's only so much room in there, ya know. Gotta save space for the important things.
Now List 5 weird things you don't know about me.
1. Snoring and rude gum smacking/chewing makes me crazy. (sad thing is I snore)
2. The right and left sides of my face don't "match" because I got bells palsy a few years ago which paralyzed my left side. I never fully recovered.
3. I love to watch the first 15 minutes of Live with Regis and Kelly. I just think Kelly is so dang funny and she gets my day started with a smile.
4. I'm very competive and a control freak. I like to do things myself so that I know it's done right.
5. I don't eat almost all veggies. There are a few I like, but won't touch the rest. Salads are beautiful and I make them...for others to eat. Wish I liked them so I would fit in socially at meal time.
Now I'm tagging...
oops...that's 8. Oh well....and anyone else who reads this and wants to play. Please don't feel like any of you have to play. It's just for crazy deadlines or impending bad luck if you don't.... That's just silly! :o)
P.S. To the girl who posted a comment a while back that lives in Yuma. You didn't leave your name. I would have loved to have met you at the bazzill sale. I hope you at least went to Scrapbooks Etc while you were here. There are other girls out there that I can't talk to because there is no link to you, but just know that I honestly appreciate your comments....I love all my new blogging buddies.
I'm thinking this post was way too sorry! :o)

It sounds like you had a very good day ... you got alot done!

I know what you mean about the rain. It actually started raining about 3:00 this morning and it's still pouring ... we do not get rain very much here either, so when we do, we relish it.

I'm glad you were able to spend some quality time with Baby Mark. He's such a beautiful baby ... and I pray he is home with you all as soon as possible.

I'm so excited ... I've been "tagged" for the first time by you ... thanks!

The kittens are getting so big and adorable! Love that close up of Mark! Even if his head is cut off! ;) He's so sweet!

Valerie said...

come home soon, Mark! grandma needs to do some spoiling!!

ah, the joys of waxing. i've GOT to get that done today, too. you're right, it hurts like $%!@# and while i get so mad at myself for being so self-centered, i then get a glimpse of myself in the mirror & suddenly have visions of being in a "freak show" at the carnival.

Chris said...

Baby is looking good!! glad they didnt' find anything...but then I wonder what the problem is?? Maybe just needs time.

I also watch the host chat of Live with Regis and Kelly. I hardly ever watch the rest. too funny. Eccasionally there is a guest I want to see.

Good for Chad. So he is National Gaurd? e-mail me his address, if he can get mail.

Cindy said...

I've never posted a comment before but read your blog quite often! :) That little fish mobile that hooks onto the side of the crib can be bought at Target. Or at least that is where I bought my twin boys theirs 2 years ago. If you can't find one, let me know, I have been cleaning out their stuff and I'm sure I'll be getting rid of theirs.

Jacquie said...

Coleen said...

Hi Sis,
Glad to hear baby Mark is doing good today. I am leaving for Vegas in a few hours for Brian's wedding. Just wanted to look to see what's going on! Love ya!

Jennifer said...

If it makes you feel any better, the regular Army guys go through the same kind of hard-nose training... :0)

Mark looks so sweet! I hope he gets to come home soon!

I can never remember song titles or group names either. I have to sit online for hours and sort through samples to figure out who sings what!
