Dare to Muse me!

So I decided to jump on the Dare to Muse me Challenge on Holly's blog. Link is to the left... Here is mine for this week...

Also debating on trying out for her creative team again. I've done it once before and still thinking about trying out, she is looking for 3-5 members. I'm just really not sure if I'm good enough. That's what holds me back from trying out for these creative teams. I've only tried out for Holly's that one time and have never tried out for anyone elses. I just hate rejection. I still have a little time to make up my mind. So I'm trying to get back to posting my pages on scrapbooking sites for now. I'll make a final decision next week on if I want to take that step.

Feeling better and back to bloggin!

Tally and I are both feeling 100% better this week. Sorry about my lack of posting last week. Just wasn't on the computer for very long during the day. I am now back and will be posting though. :D

So last week Matt became President of our condo association. Mr. President can't even walk to the QT to get me a diet pepsi without getting stopped by one of these idiots that live around here. What used to take him about 5 mins has now turned into at least 30 mins. Let's just say I'm less than happy about this position. I guess I'm selfish in wanting him home alot when it seems like now he is going to be at meetings a couple of nights out the month especially until things get in place.

Miss Tally has two new teeth coming in up top but not the middle two, the ones next to them. The middle two are right there though, you can see them pushing out on the front when you lift her top lip, so it won't be to long. Then baby girl will have 6 teeth finally instead of just the two. Going to start her on some of our food, was just waiting on some more teeth.

She fell Saturday and hit her cheek on the incrediblock. Has a nice bruise there now. I swear she feel and we aren't beating her. ;) Here is a nice little pic of it...

I have an excuse I promise ;)

I'm sorry I didn't make a post on Friday. I meant to all day then when afternoon hit, it was not going to happen. Tally and I were both sick all weekend. Starting Friday afternoon Tally stopped eating, started have diarrhea and then started throwing up. I started feeling achy that night and was running a fever. Was up on and off all night checking on Tally making sure she wasn't dehydrated, during one of those she had another nasty diaper and had to change her clothes and the bedding. She took a bottle after that though, all 6 ozs. Then when Matt tried to feed her breakfast she refused the bottle and only ate a little of the cereal. Ended up throwing that up and then some..

Took her to the Urgent Care Sat around noon and found out she has Rotavirus. Nasty stuff and apparently it's all over the place right now. They told us they've had alot of cases of it. Makes me sick since I'm a SAHM and nobody at my dd's playgroup mentioned anything about having something like this so it must have been from a stinking shopping cart ... UGH. Need to make sure I have the shopping cart cover next time I go shopping. So anyway she is doing better, no more throwing up and diarrhea is only once a day so far maybe a couple more days of that.

Now on to me... by Sat night my fever had gotten up to 103 and my throat was killing me. So I went to the Urgent care near my house, not the one for my daughters peditrician. Found out I have Strep Throat. So I'm taking my meds and actually haven't had a fever today which makes me happy. Since yesterday I was scared I wasn't going to be able to take care of my daughter today if I would have. My poor husband was running around this house all weekend trying to take care of me and Tally. He is so great! :D

So that was my excuse for not posting on Friday and whatever I would have said Friday it now lost in my head so that is all you get for today. Of course I couldn't do any scrapbooking since I was resting most of the time and just checking in to my Forums and YIM on Matt's laptop. Plus I don't have any new pictures so far this year. Once we are feeling 100% we'll start that back up.

We'll see how I'm feeling tomorrow but I should be able to post a little something.

I'm back.....

Day 2 of my weekday blogging and I made it. Good start don't you think.

Our day started the same as any day. Woke up to Tally crying ready to get out of bed. Came and layed on the floor in the playroom while Tally played. Then fed her and myself breakfast. She had some tasty formula and oatmeal cereal mixed with Pears and Pineapple. I had a wheat english muffin with egg and half a slice of cheese and a glass of orange juice. Tally took her morning nap. Not a long one though. Took a shower right after she woke up from that.

Decided to take a trip to Target and Bath & Body Works. So I got her ready in the cutest dress outfit w/ matching hat. Headed towards Target, parked and decided to walk down to Marshalls. Used to work there in my highschool days, so I visited with people I know that still work there. Went into Target after that and Tally kept taking her hat off. Found it on the floor once picked it back up and gave it to her. Payed for the 2 cd boxes and the cute pair of shoes for Tally to replace the ones my dog ate last week. You know last week when my dogs also decided to eat a box of brownies from Swiss Colony, you know the ones covered in Chocolate. So it's also the day we went to the vet to spend $100 to have them make Chance and Caramel throw up. Anyways... on with my day.

Called my mom after Target to see when she was getting off work. She said 2 and it was 1:40, so I went and picked her up from work and headed to the mall to go to Bath & Body Works. Ended up not getting anything because I couldn't decide and they didn't have the candle scents I wanted. Got a pretzel and drink and walked around a little bit. Then dropped my mom off and headed home.

Got home and realized, where is the hat. Yes, I lost the hat. Can't remember what happened to the hat after I picked it up at Target. Can't remember if I stuck it back on her head or what. I know for a fact I didn't have it on her head after I picked up my mom. So I called Target, no hat, even went to Target and still no hat. So the cute hat that matches her cute outfit is GONE. Makes me sad but life will go on.

All I can say is I'll miss that hat. ;) See you tomorrow!

Happy New Year and all that other stuff.

Hope everyones New Years was nice. We just stayed home this year and rented a couple of movies to watch. Nothing special other than quality time spent with my family. Matt and I did stay up and watch the ball drop though.

I've started back on Weight Watchers again. I've been slacking the past month or so. Good news is that the slacking didn't throw me off to much. I only gained back 2 lbs of the 15 I originally lost. So nothing I can't fix within a week or so. So the countdown has begun... again. LOL Looking towards losing about 30lbs by the summer, if not 45. I can do it. Just need to control myself. Matt and I are talking about trying for baby number two towards the end of the summer and I want most of this weight off and to have a regular exercise schedule down. So keep your *fingers crossed* that I can make that far.

I've done a few scrapbook pages the past couple of weeks.

I probably should start posting who the kits are from but not to many digital scrapbookers look at my blog so eventually I might start giving credits but for now if you want to know where I got the digital kits I used in a layout, email me and I'll let you know.

Today I went to playgroup after not going to one since November. It was nice, met the new SAHD that may be joining our group. He has a sweet 16month old DD that is just adorable. Then afterwards went to lunch at Cheddars and had a salad and Tortilla soup (which btw is the best I've had at a restaurant, cause my rocks too) Then Misty and I went for a walk, whew I am soooo out of shape. Hopefully we can keep this up and on days we don't see eachother I can walk around the neighborhood. Need to fit in time to see my XBOX girl Maya. It's hard right now since Tally is in that almost walking clingy stage. If I could only get myself away from the computer at night when Matt is home. LOL

Ok I'm off for now but I am going to try something new, at least during the week, I am going to become a weekday blogger. We'll see if I can keep it up ;) So see you tomorrow! Have a great day.
