Thanks, guys ... I'm dragging a bit this morning. I just can't sleep soundly until Mr. is safely back home when he's been working late. They worked him past midnight last night, and he got to bed about 2 a.m. The advertising business is NUTS. I'm hoping that, just maybe, today at the office is less jam-packed than it has been. Can't wait to get to the weekend. Hoping they don't have work for Mr. again this weekend. Lately it's been a rare weekend that they haven't had him on standby for something. His office just doesn't observe normal working hours, and some of the clients at my office have a habit of submitting work around 5 or 5:30 p.m. that HAS to be done before morning. Still, I'm always grateful that we're both employed full-time.

Thanks guys I will certainly ask them this afternoon because I will be picking them up today after work! And merry thanks if I may ask how long did it take before things got better? James is almost 6 months old now,and the thing is he was not like this until after Christmas break then it seems like it stared in January. Thanks for the advice and empathy!!!
Dawg I am not saying for you to do this but for us it was that my son STAYED hungry. we ended up giving him a little baby ceereal in the evening after 5 months & he would sleep longer. I'd say it was all done by 1o months. good luck!

Well I hope everyone has a great and exciting weekend ahead and get a chance todo whatever you want to. I am cutting the grass as soon as I get home because the ppl that are buying our house are coming over in the morning so I want it to lookas good as possible. Now tomorrow me and Brandi have been invited to a buddy of mine's wedding. It's going to be held at a Tallahassee country club. Tal. is about an hour and a half drive from us and it's all back country roads to get there in the fall it would be beautiful and I guess in the spring it will be very pretty too. Then on Sunday I have a Baseball game after Church services we are playing a team that works at roadway it's a freight company and they are suppose to be pretty good..now are they as good as the US Air Force? I don't think so...although I will admit my fallure if we lose! Have a great morning buddies!
great news, you've already sold ur house!

We still have to have the glass on her phone fixed so that may be our first stop.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
nothing like mother/daughter time.

As I shared before, tomorrow will be a tough day for me and we go 'college shopping' with our son.

Have a blessed day and a great weekend everyone.
I have a few years till I have to do that, but I'm still dreading the day. I hope it's not too bad for you!

Good Morning MMC and Happy Milestone Day!!!!!!!! It's going to be a beautiful day here in central Indy with a high near 63 this afternoon. Mom is doing good today. Pretty much back to normal today besides a little bit of lingering numbness in her face. I have a lot to do today. It's amazing how fast you can get behind on stuff. Plus I have to spend all day tomorrow helping my sister set up for the girl scout mother daughter banquet so I won't have time to get anything done then. At least I got a good nights sleep. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!
