We made it to Pella today. Tomorrow, my dear friend Chari, her hubby Scott, son Zachery and Chari's parents and Scott's parents will finally meet Chewie. About damn time I say! Chari is probably one of my oldest friends--even older then Stephanie--if that's possible! She was the one I called right after I met Ted and told her I just met the guy I'm going to marry. And 5 months later I took him down there to get the approval of her folks and also to see baby Zachery. Scary--I talked with Zachery on the phone Monday night and his voice is starting to crack. I am getting old!!! While this trip is going on, my bathroom is getting trashed out. Well ok not trashed out--fixed. The tub surround that Ted and I put in--to fix the one that Rauan busted while he was trying to climb the wall (!!!!)--well cheap temporary fix. Now that I actually have some $--redoing it with new plumbing, vapor barrier, cement wall, tile, etc. In other words--doing it right so my little monkeys can't bust it again. Ok, I would like a bigger house--but after putting all this money into the place--I might end up leaving it in a casket and no other way! The boys can just deal with sharing a room!
I would also like to put a plug in for whoever invented portable dvd players. Whoever you are--you probably saved 3 kids' lives today! I'm glad we decided to delay the Disney trip. Aye Yi Yi!!
And while I'm at it--I'm so glad I got on to check my facebook and blogger tonight. It appears that my friend Sara(http://noeskeclan.blogspot.com) has a surprise coming in about 8 1/2 months! YEAH!!! I know this has been a long wait and I'm hope her uterus is sticky! Honestly Sara, as much as I complain about my kids--they are the best thing I've ever done (ok--about equal with marrying Ted). Parenthood is incredible. And I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Ok--do you suppose they are sleeping yet??? I snuck down to the business office and left them with Ted--and left Ted with a beer!
