Well, I'm getting my wisdom teeth extracted tomorrow. Fun! (sarcasm) So I will be out of commission until I feel better. Some time next year I'm sure.
A couple of prayer requests before I go:
My grandpa. He's back in the hospital, and could use all the help he can get.
My twin nieces. They are three, and going through some adult stuff. No good.
Anyway, try to hold yourselves together until I get back. Just remember, I'm not dead, I'm just in a lot of pain. Wait, that came out wrong....

Monday FHE

It was an interesting Monday. The weather was AWESOME, and Erik and I went to Wal-Mart, mainly to pick up a new microwave. Ours bit the dust on Saturday, and let me tell you, living without one, even for a day, sucks.
I made chicken and dumplings for dinner tonight, and they were super duper uber good. Then we went for a walk to the grocery store and got some pumpkins. 'Tis the season and all! Watching the kids race each other is always way fun. We were checking out our pumpkins, when Erik stuck his hand out to the cashier, and said, "Hi, my name is Erik." He shook her hand, and then ran off. He's been doing that lately. I have no idea where he got it, but it's freaking hilarious!! The looks on people's faces....! While Erik and were at Wal-mart, I spied these cute little pies. They were about the size of one medium sized slice of pie, only round, and only fifty cents each! So I bought a good variety and that was our treat for FHE. Why is watching your children really enjoy their food give one such a warm, fuzzy and fulfilled feeling? I love it.
It was a good day.

I do not know what the FREAK is up with my children today, but they are driving me bananas. Bouncing off the walls, sassy, destructive, and pain inducing (that's mostly Erik)...I'm about ready to throw them out the window. And of course, John is gone until tomorrow night. Nice.

ETA: It got better. I took the kids out to the Huddle House for dinner, where they charmed the waitress and all the diners, played tick-tac-toe nicely with each other (Jonni confided to me later that she let Erik win, lol!), and were very good. Until we got home anyway. :P

Much Delayed Review

Okay, so we've had the Sleep Number bed for just shy of a week, I think five full nights. My initial reaction was LOVE, and now that I've had a few nights to try it out, it's turned into ADORATION!! I worship this bed. It wouldn't have been so good without the topper we got for it, but with the memory foam IT'S PERFECT. I've been running on pure adrenaline for several weeks, and now that I'm able to sleep again, I'm beyond exhausted, lol! It's like my body is saying "finally, now we are going to get caught up....for the next month...." John really likes it too. He's one of those people that likes a constantly changing sleeping surface, I think, kinda like a cat, so this is perfect for him. He can adjust to to his heart's content, so we're both uber happy with it. Which is the point of a Sleep Number bed after all: to make both people in the couple happy, and it works. How did I live before we had this?!!
For those of you thinking "why should I get one, it's just a air mattress!" You are so totally wrong. I can see it if we didn't get the topper like I said, but with the topper, it's not air mattress-y in the least, not even a little bit. It's soft and fluffy and wonderful, and I'm totally in love with it.

I'm So Excited!!

Our new sleep number mattress is coming on WEDNESDAY!! Two more nights and then, hopefully, I can get a good night's sleep....
Oh, and I ended up getting a 4 inch, 3 lb density memory foam topper for the new mattress, and it should be here this week as well. My giddiness is immeasurable!

New Mattress!

So, my mattress is shot. It's eight years old, and it's just gone cahpoohey. Neither John nor I have had a good night's sleep in over a month. I keep getting sick, and I just don't have the energy to do anything at all. So, several weeks ago, the search started, and last Monday, Labor Day (when the sales were good), John and I ordered one! I'm really excited about it, because it's a Sleep Number bed. I have high hopes for it. John and I are polar opposites when it comes to how soft we want our sleeping area, and I think this will be our solution. They are MIGHTY expensive, though, so we got the cheapest one. That means it is a little less-than in terms of comfort, so my next project is a super good topper to put on it to make it perfect. Anyone out there in blogger land have any good suggestions? I've done some legwork and a lot of online research, but I just don't know what's good because I haven't slept on one! Our mattress should be here in two weeks, weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
