Catch 22

So, I'm at home with Abby today....always a good thing!!! But, as usual, I'm only at home because she's sick. And that STINKS....literally in this case! All morning, I've been cleaning poo off of surfaces that should NEVER have poo on them. Not fun AT ALL. But...I had been telling myself that I really needed a day off to get some things done and spend some time with Abby....so I am trying to look at the bright side here...

Elliott's Excellent Eats

I created a new blog! Actually, I just took the 'junk blog' that Zac made awhile back and decided to do something with it. I love to get and share recipes, so I started a recipe blog! You can link to it from the right of this blog, under Websites to Visit. If you have any yummy recipes, please e-mail them to me (sarah_e04@yahoo.com) and I will gladly put them on my blog. If you try any of the recipes, post a comment and let me know!!

NOTE: I have some Pampered Chef stoneware that I don't use, it's just taking up space in my cabinet. I have a 12 cup muffin pan and a pizza stone - if anybody wants it, let me know!!

Ok, I read this article and it makes me feel soooo much better about my occasional ditz moments. It talks about how babies can cause 'momnesia.' A must-read for all moms!

Ponytail Challenge

Ok, so you've all seen my posts about the Ponytail Challenge. This week, Camille is giving away some cool prizes and the challenge is all about posture. I'm pretty sure all of us could stand to pay a little more attention to sitting/standing up straight!! Check her out at http://ponytailchallenge.blogspot.com/

Bodily functions...and other stuff...

Abby pooped in the potty yesterday! Of course, it was at daycare. Not that I miss dealing with poop, but I feel like such a crap mom when she does stuff for the first time at daycare. But she is getting the hang of the potty thing and I am very excited about that.

Still waiting on someone to call us about the inspection on our house. Apparently our buyers are getting some kind of government first-time home buyers assistance and the inspections are pretty tough. So, if everybody would say a little prayer for us, it'd be great. Then another little prayer so that we can figure out what the heck we want to do with the rest of our lives....lol.

Had a great time at Scrapbook/Craft Night last Friday. I just love it! As Jennifer says, "It's therapy." I love talking to my hubby, but I can't talk ABOUT him if I'm talking TO him. hehehe

Our house...

I talked to Wade (one of our buyers) today and the appraisal went well!! I didn't get a specific number from him, but it appraised for enough and that is all I need to know! Now we just have to pass inspections and get the ball rolling - hopefully we'll close by the end of July. wooo hoo!!!!

Some fun pictures

On Saturday, I kept a friend's 4 1/2 month old little boy. Wow - wake up call! Jayden either had a belly ache or separation anxiety; he screamed his little head off for an hour straight! Thankfully, the Lord heard my prayer and Zac got off work around 5 pm, a good four hours early. Abby, Jayden and I went to pick him up. He played with the kids for the hour or so after, till Collin and Carolyn came to get Jayden. I stared into space and wondered if I could get by the pharmacy quick enough to fill my birth control prescription! haha But, Abby did have fun playing with the baby and we got some funny pictures of her playing in his car seat and loving on him.

Zac's schedule is a little different this week and he was off today and will be off tomorrow, instead of his usual Thurs/Friday. Tonight I got home and he'd made dinner (what a great hubby!!) and I had to take a few pics when Abby started making this hilarious face that we'd never seen before...

I'm in here messing on the computer and listening to the Fox News background (Zac's fave news station) and they're talking about all the craziness in the world...murders, abuse, old ladies falling out in hospital ERs and nobody checking on her...I mean, come on!!! People are doing all this stuff (or NOT doing anything, as in the old lady case) and they REALLY wonder why bad things happen to us??? "Wrath of God," anyone? Sheesh.

Had to get that one out...the gospel according to Sarah, I suppose...
