And now...I'M BACK!!!


What day is it?



Hmmm, let's see, what's been goin on since my last post? Well, as I mentioned, Jayla is doing much, much better. And thank you all for your well wishes for her.

Saturday, for some weird reason, Jayla's temp went back up to 102! Are you KIDDING ME? Something tells me the thermometer wasn't working properly :-). Because not 10 minutes after I took her temp and gave her some Motrin...she was back to 98.8! And we haven't seen anything resembling a fever since.

SO, being that all was well on homefront, I took a chance and went to the scrapbook store. Not sure WHAT I was thinking. But I did it. (Note to self: Don't EVA..EVA, eva, eva, eva, do that again!!) I got to the store in record time, handled my business and was back on the road in no time. ONLY to get stuck in an hour and a half worth of traffic. 30 minutes of which I sat, pretty much, in the same spot! SHEESH!!! I talked with Mister M. while I was out, just to check on Jayla. And he even asked me, "Where did you have to GO?!?" It was a MESS!!

Traffic and no soccer? How much am I supposed to deal with? :-)

Anyway, we sprung forward with the time, just like we were supposed to (still not sure why we have to do that...buy ANYHOO!) and still slept...right through church, LOL!!! Ooops! (we didn't actually sleep IN church...we just kinda, didn't even make it). OK...enough about THAT!

Yesterday, Jayla went back to school for the first time in a week. She was so excited to get back. I was so proud of her. She had a few things to work on while she was out last week. And she couldn't get back to class fast enough to show her teacher that she did all of her "homework".

I volunteered in her class yesterday and had a really great time with the kids. I always look forward to seeing them. They're a great bunch!

When I picked Jayla up from school, I asked her if she was going to feel like going to soccer practice. Being that they played outside yesterday, I thought she might be feeling up to practicing. At first, she said yes. Then, a few minutes later she tells me that she might not want to. HOWEVER, she did still want to go to the fields, so she could sit and watch her team practice. I asked her why and to my surprise, she says, "Well, I just wanna watch so I won't miss anything. I wanna watch what they do so I'll know what to do the next time I practice. Is that ok?" I don't know why I was surprised by that. I just was. So I told her that would be fine and that her "coach Daddy" would probably like that. Knowing my daughter the way I do, I decided to take her practice stuff...just in case. And good thing I did. Half way through, she came to me with her finger in her mouth and this silly grin. And said to me, "Mom, they're about to do one-on-one and I wanna do that. Can I?" LOL This girl LOVES to compete. I just love that she's such a team player and congratulates her teammates even when they score on her (which isn't that often, lol).

Today, I just went to the scrapbook store (YES, AGAIN!) and to 2 different Walmarts. Then back to Walmart, AGAIN after I picked Jayla up. WHAT?? lol

Alrighty, that's about all I've got for now. Sorry, I don't have any pictures to share today. Maybe tomorrow :-). Enjoy your day!!!

OH...for you scrapbookers out there, I have a question. What's the difference between sheets of acetate and transparencies? Sorry, I'm having a DUH moment. Thanks!

Scrapbook store twice in one week huh???!! Sounds like the ultimate shopping experience to me! LOL! I went to two different scrapbook stores and Hobby Lobby in one day. It was a disaster for the finances!! hehehe!!

You know what's funny? I have a friend named Dawn that lives in Powder Springs too!! What a coincidence huh? Well, take care and I'm glad your little one is feeling better.

Wow jayla is really dedicated in soccer! That is great! I am glad that she is feeling better.

Sorry that your "quick" shopping trip wasn't so short.

Glad Jayla is back to her old self and traffic makes me twitch and not in a good way either!

Babydoll said...

Don't feel bad. I didn't know what Etsy was either until a few months ago!!hehehe! It's an online store where you can sell hand crafted items. Kind of like Ebay, but it's only for handmade things. They sell everything on there from scrapbook pages to altered furniture. You should check it out...http://www.etsy.com/index.php

I am SO jealous of your trips to the scrapbook store. I haven't really bought me a stash of anything in a while! But... I can't wait to go to Archivers!

I'm so glad that Jayla is feeling better now!

Gretchen said...

I don't know what the difference is, Dawn. Sorry.

Glad Jayla is back in action. How cute that she wanted to be a part of practice and her team no matter what.

Sorry about your traffic headaches. No. fun. at. all.

Have a great day.
