A breath of fresh air!

Yesterday was the best day I have had in a LONG time. I didn 't really think about the effect of attending to the cute little blub, blub till he had a good day. He ate food like a little birdie, smiled frequently, played happily and took several long wonderful naps! Wow. Charley was also able to really hold him and interact with him for really the first time since he was born. He was thrilled! There is nothing quite like the little birdie mouth opening when you have been fighting to get a little baby to eat so he can gain weight. Hopefully this keeps up and he does gain weight. That would be huge relief.

A small portion of my house got cleaned too! Another miracle. My kiddos can clean and do clean but they don't see the dust bunnies hopping around under chairs etc. Perhaps today the couch can be yanked out and the floor cleaned. Who knew that I would ever be ecstatic to be able to wash a floor.

A year after cute husband's 20th anniversary at Bosch, we finally made it out to eat with his boss and wife. Thank you Robert! We went to the Morris Inn which I think is relatively not known but I would say is one of the best restaurants in the area. The food was great and we had a nice time discussing Charley's obsessions. So there again I had two hours with the hubby and the baby was reported to be cheerful and happy while I was gone (even though his eight year old brother had a few bad moments.....).

My cute husband also fixed my other baby, the lawn mower. It purrs like a......lion? definately not a kitten but it does run smoothly and.......I can turn it on without jumping it.....and the blades actually can be turned on and off without monkeying around with it. Do all people get such joy out of a tool that works? The lawn should be looking pretty spiffy again and the winter blues will melt away. Or are the blues my personal hyper need to exercise? of those.

We shall see what today holds but thanks be to God for one good, perky day yesterday.

Very cool!

Hooray for both you and Stefan (and Charley!).

I hope your days since have been as grand, also.

And Happy Mothers' Day, today!
