More catching up....

OK..time to do some catch ups! Here's what's been up since I blogged last.

1st off, I've taken 2 more shots since then. The one last Monday was awful! It was much worse then the 1st one. I got everything all out and set up...thinking it was gonna be easy that time. Then I sat down, alcoholed the spot on my leg, opened the shot up, pressed it to my leg, and couldn't do it! Andy was all smiles, and ready to do it for me. So...I let him. I guess I was too tense, because it hurt like HELL! I cried. Yes, like a baby! I don't know if any of you have every had a shot that ached in your bones? Where you could feel the medicine going through you and it ached and hurt down to the bone? Well, this was like that....but 10 times worse! So, then I was NOT looking forward to my shot this Monday. I got all set up again, and planned the process with Andy. This time I pinched my leg fat...very attractive, I know....and Andy was going to give it to me again. I was a very good girl this time. It didn't take me but a minute to get up enough courage to tell Andy to do it. It did hurt, but this time I could just squeeze my leg really hard and it took over the pain!!! It was soooo much better then the 1st time when I did it myself, and the second time when it hurt like HELL!!! So, I'm not too worried about next week! Woo hoo hoo!!

Also new these days...my little man is 6 months old!!! Goodness, where has the time gone? He is sitting pretty these days. He loves to sit and play with toys, sit in high chairs when we eat out, and sit up in the carts when we shop! He thinks he's hot stuff...and he is! He has two bottom teeth shining pretty too! He loves running over your toes in his walker...so watch out if you're ever at my house! I just can't get enough of my little man...but I won't bore you further with my details!

Besides that, I've been watching my nephews once a week to give my mom a break...and so Porter can get used to lots of action and noise! I didn't want him to be all shy and scared around kids, since he's always home alone with me. In return for mom's day off, she takes Porter on most Fridays so I can run some errands, or just have a day off to play!!! It's been going great! He loves seeing his cousins and he isn't jumpy when they're up in his face or yelling..haha! It also gives his Mama some good quality time with him.

The only other new thing, is we're trying to plan our summer vacation. I wanted to go to Florida, but Andy says we should go there next year when Porter's older and can enjoy it more. FINE! So now we're pretty sure we're going to the Wilderness Lodge in Lesterville, MO. Andy went there when he was little, and said he loved it! We'll get a little cabin or cottage all to ourselves, with a screened in porch. How cute! At the lodge they have a dining room where you get all your breakfasts and suppers. They also have a pool and hot tub! Then of course, they have the black river to swim in. We're going in late July, and staying 4 days and 3 nights. Before that, in June, we'll take Porter to St. Louis and stay a night or two so we can take him to the Zoo and Grant's farm. We'll also stay at Sam A Baker sometime too..for another night or two...when my family goes. I love the idea of 3 smaller vacations instead of 1 long one. It'll be nice for a change, and better for Porter I'm sure! I can't wait!

Well, that's about all really. I live a pretty simple life. I love everything about it though, and wouldn't change a thing!!! Thanks for listening!!!
