I Know, I'm Slacking!

Life has been a little bit hectic this past week so I must apologize for no pictures of Emma. Last weekend we went out of town for a friend's wedding and came home Sunday night. Then on Monday my Aunt Marsha, Monya, and Melica came down from Nashville and left yesterday (Wed). They have been on fall break. Then Emma came down with a low fever on Monday but acted completely normal. So I thought she will be fine on Tuesday. Wrong! Tuesday night her fever went up to 104 so yesterday we took her to the pedi. After checking her out the Dr. came to the conclusion is was just a virus. We came home and around 5 or 6pm her fever was finally gone! But don't get too excited yet, b/c we ended up having the WORSE night of our life with Emma and bedtime. She spent almost an hour kicking, screaming bloody murder, and being a completely different child. Horrible, horrible, horrible! I just wanted to burst into tears. George finally got her to sleep around 10pm only to have her wake up at 12am and start the whole process over. I spent the next 2 hours with her kicking, screaming, and being completely unreasonable. She finally got so exhausted from her aerobics that she fell asleep. She woke up at 8am fairly happy and has been an angel all day. However, I'm not looking forward to tonight. Please say a prayer that it will be better!

Now on to today! We've had a great day so far. I have been so productive that I'm super proud of myself. Emma and I unloaded the dishwasher after breakfast this morning and then cleaned the kitchen. Then we cleaned the rest of the house, vacuumed, and mopped the kitchen. I've also done 2 loads of laundry, fed Emma lunch (which she ate ALL of it) and put her down for a nap! She's been asleep for almost an hour so far. I'm hoping to finish up the laundry, mop my bathroom and whatever else I can find. I know some of you are thinking "isn't this normal everyday stuff?" Yep it is but with a toddler it is so hard to clean these days and most of the time I like to have "me" time while she is napping. That means playing on the computer, watching TV, or taking a nap myself. I'm a big napper! :) But I have to say it feels awesome being so productive all in one day.

That's it for now. Hopefully I will post some pics later tonight or tomorrow. Friday (payday) is almost here!!!
