marriage stuff

There is a couple at church that just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. I am so impressed with that. Husband and I had a very heated argument on Wednesday night last week, and I am still crying from it. Back to counseling for us. I was assured by a friend at church, who has celebrated 47 years of wedding bliss, that it all takes a lot of work. She and her husband have been through counseling, and according to her that's what you have to do to make it last so long. I am hoping that this is just a rough spot, I'm sure that's all it is. I was also told by a mutual friend that I needed to put forth more effort, I have my work cut out for me.

We will celebrate 12 years in June.

the tooth fairy

Big Girl Princess has lost her two front teeth! I think she looks so cute without them.

Let me tell you about the tooth fairy... Usually, actually this has happened two or three times, BGP will wake up while I am exchanging money for the tooth, and it's no big deal because she is half asleep and doesn't remember the episode the next morning. Well, these last two teeth, husband has done the exchange, except he forgot that last one and a second after our alarm went off that morning he sat up suddenly with a gasp and said, "I forgot to do the tooth!" I asked him for a dollar and sneaked into BGPs room and made the exchange and got the hell out of there because she started to roll around in her bed. I made it!!! She didn't even get up until her alarm went off! I hope she doesn't know about me and her father being the tooth fairy because this would be a lot of work, our sneaking around if she is trying to humor us.

adventures with baby princess

Today I went to Target (probably my favorite store ever) to find some spring/summer clothes for Big Girl Princess. Baby Princess went with me and as I was looking at the clearance racks in BP's department I noticed that the Disney Princess pj's and nightgowns were strategically placed next to that clear. I noticed this because BP got the nightgown she wanted, The Little Mermaid. I really thought I could just fake it and then put it back later on when she wasn't paying attention. It didn't work out that way, she not only held on to it she also put it on over her dress while we were in the store. I got it off her, and explained that we need to wait until we buy it before we can wear it, and that seemed to work.

When we got home, Baby Princess found her new nightgown in the bag as I was unloading and putting stuff away, and put it on to wear for the rest of the day.

Just one of those days.

I don't know why, but for some reason today has been one of those days for me. It all started when I woke up, and everything has irritated me all day. I did feel a lot better though when I delivered dinner to I'm a Mom! and I saw her beautiful new babies.

I was also thinking about the old me. I used to be one of those kinds of people that would buy clothes to wear just for that season. I hated having anything over a year old to wear out or to work in. I look at myself now, and I wear sweats everyday! I seriously look like I'm in my tornado clothes. I was telling Little Red's Momma today that all I need is a camera crew to appear to my house to tape an interview and I look straight-up, well, I don't want to go there... I also wouldn't say I have let myself go, because I am working out very regularly and I have been much better about my diet since the whole cancer thing. I guess I am to the point now that I don't care what people think of me from what I look like.
