Nothing much

Day care at my house this week so posting from I phone-to small to say much. We have been having fun and Angel likes being home once in awhile as do I.
I made a delicious dinner last night for J & S. I haven't cooked much lately have to get in a little practice when I can.
Must run a neighbor is coming for a visit.

Day three home free!

We had a good night and Rylee is playing with the dogs toys and watching the rain. Quick post. The parents will be home about supper. Hope they had fun! Rylee and I are going to pull out the books...

Two down

Today we didn't have an afternoon nap...and she is out like a to follow! I am having a drink (this afternoon was stressful!)

One down

This is the weekend Jon and Shannon are off for their get a way and I got through my first night with Rylee. She is still sleeping so I thought I'd catch up.
Last night she did not start off well. I put her down about 7:45 after reading stories. But she knew Mama should be putting her to bed apparently. She didn't cry but at 8:40 she was still squirming all over. I thought maybe she pooped so up I went and changed her, no poo, I gave her a bit of milk as she hadn't drank much of hers before. Then just rocked and hummed in the dim light. Then I put her back. She fussed a second or two but still didn't sleep until 9:30. She was trying too but I think she knew something was off. After that it was smooth. She is stiring now like a normal morning but not ready to get up.
Hope tonight goes smoother!

Drinking and driving? Who me?


Over the legal milk limit? Oh No! Please don't tell my Daddy!


Okay, I'm spoiled, I have my own I phone.

Sure Grandpa, I'll teach you how to use it.

Good bye to Gary's Bar

A sad tale from back home. A restaurant/bar/banquet hall, and a place all of us from C-I loved, has sadly closed it's doors this week. It was one of the few places in our area that was a clean family place to eat, where the food was good, but you could still grab a beer. The bar has been around for at least 75-100 years. It has had four or five owners but remained. Jon Polich's Grandpa even owned it at one time. It's closing is devastating to the town and the family's involved. Good luck to them in the future. I hope someone else will open it and try again. It is such a nice place with a lot to offer.

Rylee news:
Enter Rylee's picky eater faze! Right after her birthday she has decided to be a picky kid. No matter what I fix for breakfast, she won't eat it. So today I thought, maybe she takes after her dad and doesn't like breakfast, so I fixed lunch and ta-dah she ate it. (it's probably a fluke) And while I'm at it, a big thank you goes out to Campbell's for "chicken and stars soup"! She loves it and so far isn't sick of it. So when all else fails...But still I am hopeful that she won't be as picky eater as her mom was!

Another thought, why is it, Rylee has all these great new toys and still she picks through Rio's toy bin and goes for those groody things?

On another matter entirely: I made one of Racheal Ray's pecan and cheese stuffed/ bacon wrapped chicken breasts last night for! It may have been the best thing I ever ate! Can't wait to make it for John when he comes back.

Rylee's Bermuda Triangle

Here are a few Rylee-isums I've been meaning to post:

Every morning at Jon and Shannon's around 9:15 to 9:30 there is a triangle shaped sun-spot right by their leather sectional and every time Rylee walks through it the bright sun blinds her, she squints her eyes, and she falls flat. She will walk back and forth five or six different times. When she walks toward the kitchen she passes right through. But when she walks toward the front of the house, blind-spot and splat. I guess she is trying to figure out why she keeps falling one way and not the other. I call it Rylee's Bermuda Triangle!

When she wants to get picked up she throws her arms into the air, straight up and bends her wrists over. It's hard to picture, (I will try to get a photo) but it looks like a dance pose and cracks me up.

When she doesn't want to eat what you prepared she won't even taste it...she just keeps her mouth shut tight as a trap. Apparently, it looks like crap!

Today she has been trying hard to get a boo-boo before going to the doctor. First she fell on the tile with a toy in her hand and bumped her cheek. She cried and cried. She finally stopped when she was given angel kisses. Real ones, Angel washed her face literally. Usually, she won't kiss her as she is a bit leery of Rylee as Rylee can be over-exuberant with her. But today when she saw tears, Angel had to help.
Then Rylee got a mysterious injury, we were playing with her zoo toy and I don't know what happened but she started crying so it must have pinched.
Then she was riding her car and tipped it over and she went ass over tea kettle. So far, no visible injury's that I can see, but the day is young...

up date

Nana Day Care...going good.
Only snag is that because Rylee is teething...her eating habits have changed and I can't get her to eat much. But as Shannon said this morning...she will eat when she is hungry...she is fine, so I am not stressing. Rylee is loving the new birthday toys! Thanks folks!

Not much going on since John left, I sewed a quick quilt and part of a second. Visited with my neighbor last night, she is PG and home on bed rest. But all is going well and it looks like in two weeks they will let her deliver.

Last night I had two margarita's and off to bed with me. Might have to do that every night.

I feel as though I haven't settled into a routine yet...but I'll get there. We have a baby shower and book club this week to look forward to! I need to finish the book today. That is about it. Over and Out.

Rylee is finishing breakfast-only cherios are left, so I have a minute.

Busy couple of days ahead. TGIF! My John is coming in for Rylee's b-day tomorrow (hurrah) so I need to clear room in the closet, drawers etc. Do a bit of laundry, & give the place a lick and a promise. I don't want him to think I live like a slob.(which I have been)

Shop for party, cook a little for party, work on Rylee's party hat (which is not coming too great...might have to buy one.) Angel needs a pillow for the new couch so she will lay on it instead of directly on couch.

I have tried to work on the above all week but I have realized I only have energy in the morning. By the time I get home from work all I have enough energy for is dinner, dishes and rest! Today I got up at 4:00 to get a head start on the cleaning. But tonight I have to force myself...

In order to live more green...I have purchased two of the big waters with a spout for my fridge. Both have just leaked out all over my fridge and floor! I tried one last year...same thing. I am done with those and will stick to the gallon jugs from now on. Grrrr

Well miss Rylee is done and I must run. I'm sure I will be too busy having fun this next week to blog.

something stinks

Yesterday at 6:30 am when I got in my car I smelled something awful! Right away I thought, what died in here? So bravely I drove to Shannon and Jon's anyway. I asked Jon if he would check the car for critters when he got home from work. All day I fretted about what it would be. True to his word Jon went out on death patrol...but rather than a dead lizzard or rat (as I feared) it was....dead cilantro! Guess it had rolled out of the bag and under my seat!It doesn't matter, it could have been something awful, he is still my hero!

Thanks Jon, for changing my-too high to reach-light blubs, carrying furniture, fixing my garage and closet doors, leaky faucets and for death patrol! I know it's a pain, but thanks for always being there.

8 steps for Rylee

Rylee just took 8 steps in a row unassisted and uncoached and she actually moved forward accross the room with big steps! Now she is playing with her zoo toy so I am blogging quick.

With design help from Shannon and moving help from Jon (and with a bit of lifting help from Pete) I have re-vamped my living room. I love it! It seems twice as big and super comfy. I will take a few pics and post soon.

Pete & Amy also took my red furniture, which made me so happy. Now it is still in the family...from S&J to me to P&A.
