Paris is near.

I think it is something like 17 days, 13 hours, 54 minutes, & 13 seconds before we leave for Paris and I could not be more excited, unless... I was David, that is. ;)
The boy cannot stop talking about Paris and my precious husband, who needs every second of travel to be planned out, is doing very well to fight the urge of charting our course.  We talked about it and we have decided that for once, we won't have a plan.  If you know us, then you know this is scary stuff! LOL  Of course, there are several things we HAVE to do, but we wont have a day to day schedule and that is new for us. :)

Our house is STILL on the market and I HATE it.  I now feel sorry for anyone who has ever tried to sell a house, especially if you already had your heart set on a specific new home.  It is so hard to try to be out of the house, at the last second, every time someone wants to see it.  It is even harder to get out of the house at the last second and then get absolutely no feedback, or even worse, negative feedback!  I have said all of this before, but it still applies and it is still miserable! LOL

Osa got her first professional "cut and curl" yesterday and she looks so cute! She was beginning to look pretty unkempt, but she looks so precious!  Don't you agree??

She didn't like the bows, but I think she loves her new do! :)

We are going on a double date with some of our best friends tonight and I am so excited! :)  Robert and Kathy, are you ready for this? :)
We are going to try a restaurant that none of us have ever been to: Ciao!  Does anyone have a review or recommendation for this place??

Rough Start

This day started out a little bumpy.
Maybe it will help to know our morning routine a little before I divulge the bump...
In the mornings, while I am making/serving breakfast to the kids, David will often take his two HUGE cups of coffee upstairs and start getting ready for work. This morning, he stopped to help me with a few things before going upstairs.  He was in the laundry room with the fur babies (keeping them away from the kids and their food) doing a load of laundry.  I went into the laundry room to get something and as I was leaving, I pulled the door HARD behind me (if you live in Hillcrest, then you understand why you must pull hard on doors when closing them) and the next thing I heard was a scream!  For what I firmly believe was a solid minute (at least), there was yelping and screaming. :'(  When I pulled the door closed behind me, I had apparently slammed the door on Osa!  :'(  This isn't any ordinary inside door.  It's an outside storm door and its metal. :(
I laid her down and did a thorough check.  I pushed and squeezed over her entire body, but still worried, I called the vet.  She assured me that she was probably more scared than hurt and the yelping was probably hurt feelings (which I must admit, did not make me feel better).  I don't want to hurt her body or her feelings. :(
I am completely stalking her today, as I am supposed to make sure she eats/drinks/potties normally, but more than anything I am feeling so guilty and sad about this morning.  Am I overreacting? Probably.  Does that make me feel better? Not a bit. :(
Keep Osa (and mommy) in your thoughts and prayers today.  I am trusting and believing that there is nothing wrong internally, but my "internals" ;) aren't feeling so hot. :(  She is scared of doorways and jumping back every time I try to pet her, so mommy is feeling a bit heartbroken. :(

A touch of whiny.

Before signing on, I felt like I had so much to say. Now, I am speechless. Maybe I need to go stare at a wall. lol   I am exhausted. :/
There are very few people that follow my blog that are not mothers of toddlers or at least have been mothers of toddlers at one time, so you know what I mean when I say I am exhausted.
I love this little man. I really do. I adore him, in fact.  He is cuddly, affectionate, smart, creative, kind, loving, playful...the list could go on and on.  He is also down right exhausting! lol  He is going through a touch of a whiny stage and some days I feel like I am going to break down and cry right along with him.  Have you ever felt that way?
It is hard living so far from family because there are very few people we feel comfortable leaving our children with and that leaves us at a disadvantage when it comes to a break.  I can't relay enough how important I think this adult time is for parents.  We are finally on a bit of schedule with date nights, but they cant come soon enough some days. ;)
I think I will arrange a girls night out very soon.  Who wants to come?!  :)
