Life Is Just So Daily

Sunday, January 06, 2008


So, Friday morning...couldn't find my wedding ring.
Went to work without it.
Came home.
Couldn't find it.
Turned the house upside down.
Found it.

Saturday, grocery shopping.
Dad came over for a bit.
We played tee ball w/ Baby Gage, and soccer w/ the new Soccer ball Santa brought, and the old SpiderMan ball.
Hubby installed a new shower head in the main bathroom. We were having faucet problems in there. Problems no more! And I was soooooo excited to shower!!

Saturday night....
Went to the video store. (1) Gage was such a big boy! He mastered his first outing in big-boy-underwear with no accidents! (2) He was excited to be walking on his own in the store, and was excited to leave. He headed for the door just about 3 feet ahead of us. He missed the door---and the glass next to the door was so clean that he thought it was an open space. Ran RIGHT INTO THE GLASS & fell back onto his back. Bless his heart. Luckily---it was really thick glass & knocked him down rather than breaking. OMG, that would have been HORRIBLE! His forehead & nose hurt...poor guy. But, in the end---he's okay.

After that, back at home, Gage was rough-housing w/ Daddy, and I took a header to the face. OMG, it hurt. My cheek bone & eye area started to swell. I asked Hubby if my face was swollen...he dodged answering. I had to remind him that one of my cheek bones does not normally look like Cher's. Mmmkay? Went to bed, and it just hurt & hurt.

Woke up this morning....not so swollen, and I don't notice any bruising, but it hurts when I blink. So, I'm very aware of it at all times.

This morning, we're in big-boy undies, and he's had one accident, and one successful trip to the potty.

The weather here in Dallas has been awesome. seriously---we're talking shorts weather. Today just might include a trip to the park!

So, when Gage is an accomplished potty-er, send him a few hours down 35 and have him work his magic on Tyler, mkay?

Where was the ring?

Good going Gage, with the potty training. Awesome!

My bruised eye is almost gone'll be amazed how quickly it gets better!

It is so odd to think of you guys in shorts ... we are on day 3 of a continual snowstorm here! Crazy weather all around, it seems.

This is so sad to say, but my arm is sore from playing Wii. How pathetic is that? I hope your eye is feeling better - that area is so tender!

Congratulations Gage, what a big boy you are!

I've had plenty of facial bruises from my guys while playing!

Hope your face is feeling better! It sounds like potty training is going amazing. Good for Gage!

We were thrilled here to get to 41 degees to melt most of the snow, but the reality is, we have a long winter ahead yet! I'm jealous of the park plans!

I wish we had nice weather. We aren't cold, we aren't warm... we are just sitting around waiting for the inevitable blizzard some day LOL.

The ring: well, when I got home from work on Thursday, I got the nail file out b/c I broke a nail. I took my ring off to file my nails. (Why??? I don't know!) I set it on the couch....and when I was done filing my nails, I forgot to pick up the ring. It was smothered between the couch cushions when I finally found it.

I so have to go out today. Maybe the local park with the soccer field. 80 degrees in January. Crazy. Last time I fell and hurt my face i told hubby I was going to take a picture just in case I needed to build a case against hi in court. He was not amused.

Hope you are feeling better today! Looks like Gage is on his way to be diaper free. YAY!

I think we are in the 50s today too, can't complain about the weather when last week we were at 5degrees.

Well, where to begin? Glad you found your wedding ring, that had to shave a few seconds off your life when you realized it was missing, yikes! Sorry both you and Gage have boo-boos, ouchy! My oldest son cracked me in the nose with one of those hard cardboard picture books once (by accident), I thought he broke my nose, but alas it was fine. (not unlike your "Cher" cheek, too funny!) Good job on the potty training, high five for Gage! (and love the Thomas the Tank undies, so cute!)
