'bout time

We're this close to being done with our guest bathroom remodel. It's only taken us 3 years to do it. Not too bad. Pictures to come. If I feel ambitious enough to figure out where I need to download to because no, I still haven't figured out how to use Windows 7. So what. ☺

Tyler has pink eye. Yuck. He went to school yesterday looking totally normal and feeling fine. He came home with a very red, swollen and oozing eye. Great. I took him to the doctor last night and we're now treating it. It's looking much better today.

This morning, Avery said to me, "you know, Tyler's pink eye looks really cool! It makes him look like a pirate. Argh! I hope I get pink eye so I can look like a pirate too. Argh!"

Sadly, because pink eye is so blasted contagious, she will probably get her wish. Argh!

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting

Avery informed me last night that she wants to learn Kung Fu so that the next time Cameron is mean to her, she'll be able to beat him up. She then proceeded to beat up anything that crossed her path. Like the freezer, washer & dryer, doors, etc. I'm seeing a bloody nose, or something in my future.

Gap toothed geek

Tomorrow, it will be one week since I had the gap between my teeth filled in. My gums and the roof of my mouth are finally starting to feel better. (They were shredded in the filling in process and that is apparently normal. I kind of wish my dentist would have told me beforehand it would happen. I don't think it would have stopped me from having it done, but I would have been a little better prepared for the aftermath.) They don't feel great, just better. I'm still hesitant to bite into food with my front teeth because it hurts the gums. I know it will get better, I just wish it would happen sooner. Hurry up, stupid gums.

I'm still not totally used to the feeling of no gap. I lived with one for about 25 years. So, I would imagine it's going to take a while to adjust. I had a mini panic attack last Thursday when I realized I had done something that's basically irreversible. I'm pretty much stuck with it for the rest of my life. Yikes. Also, I was feeling really weird about doing something purely for the sake of vanity. The gap wasn't causing me any problems. Other than looking goofy and irritating me whenever I looked in the mirror. I think I'm over that now, but I do still get a little shock whenever I look in the mirror now. I guess that's better than being annoyed.

I love

This boy. I am where I am today because I decided that I MUST marry him. He didn't have any choice in the matter. I made him do it. I'm so thankful for him and I love him so very much.

Cameron told me this morning that he wished he had magic powers. I told him I thought that would be pretty cool too. He said, "you don't need magic powers because you would probably only use them to do good." I said, "well, what the heck would you use them for? To do evil?" He said, " What I would want to be able to do is if I was downstairs in the family room and was hungry, I would want to be able to wish for some food and have it appear on my lap. Then I wouldn't have to go all the way upstairs to get something. That would be awesome." I said, "you're right. That would be totally awesome."

Pants on the ground

I've been working out pretty regularly (5-6 times a week) since December. (I sure hope I stick with it for the rest of my life. I also hope that Betty Crocker doesn't throw me off again.) I've been watching and recording everything I eat too. It's beginning to pay off.

I decided to perform a little test last week and tried on a pair of pants I haven't fit in for a while. They not only fit, they were loose. Like, falling off loose. It gave me a very nice feeling indeed. I may still look like the Michelin man, but at least I do on a slightly smaller scale.
