A big thanks to Ashley and Nichole for motivating me to get my butt in gear and get back to work on my scrapbook. I'm so thankful because I've really enjoyed the creative outlet it provides and I've felt so much better ever since I've started again. Thanks, girls!

Ashley - Thanks for the awesome storage bag (the big one for paper and stuff). It is really going to come in handy!

If you are not a member of the "Isaiah's Room" group room on Snapfish and would like to be, just let me know. I keep it pretty up to date with recent pictures of the rugrat.

- Earned a wicked bruise from running into a corner of a counter at work
- Been spontaneously and violently ill (I won't go into any more detail than that)
- Aggravated a muscle in my left arm/shoulder so badly that I can't even dress myself without screaming in pain
- Had to drive back home with a nine month old WAILING at the top of his bloody little lungs for an hour and 17 minutes while I panic and try everything I can think of to help him, but to no avail.
Seriously, he had better not leave me alone again!
Despite all the butt-kicking I received over the past couple days, I did still have a very enjoyable visit back to Waupun. My mom's situation remains the same, but I think it did her some good to see her grandson for a while. I was fortunate enough that my sister was able to come over to visit for the day as well and she was the one who took this lovely photo of Isaiah and me. Other than that, it's back to the normal week once Evan gets home from the airport. Hopefully my arm will be feeling better by tomorrow or work tomorrow night is going to be really difficult. Karma sucks.

Talk to the gold medal, baby.
And then Michael Phelps manages to absolutely SHATTER his own world record by about a mile and half in an individual swim.
It will be really neat to see if he can pull off winning 8 gold medals. How cool is that??

Oh, and Isaiah officially turned 9 months old yesterday as well! Hard to believe that he's getting to be that big already, isn't it? He wants to walk so badly, so we have a feeling that it won't be too long before we really start chasing him around. That should be fun!

I absolutely LOVE watching the show "Jon and Kate Plus 8" on TLC....I figure if they can make life work with a set of twins and a set of sextuplets, I can make my life work with the hand I've been dealt. Anyway, they have this handy dandy little Time Out mats set out in set spots throughout their house where they send the kids when it's time for a time out. I love the idea because then there is a consistent location for time out every time, which creates a routine...something we know that all kids inherently need. This may seem a bit premature, but Isaiah technically becomes a toddler in only 3 months! I totally want a couple of these mats though. Think Evan will go sit on one if he gets in trouble?

After Isaiah's 6 month photos, I sent an email to Emily asking about when I might expect the proofs to be completed. She replied that she had fallen a bit behind, but that the order was in so it should be arriving shortly. Not thinking anything of it, I replied with this email.
Traded to the New York stinkin' Jets. Unbelievable. Is this really how you wanted to go out, Brett? It just wasn't good enough to have the entire state of Wisconsin bowing down to you and your legacy when you "retired." It just wasn't enough when legendary athletes of past and present paid homage to your greatness on and off the field. Nope, not enough. Instead, you have to act like a little kid who changes his mind about quitting the team and goes up to the coach at the last minute, "Put me in coach!" That's not the way it works, my friend. The team moved on. YOU RETIRED!!! They can't just start over in AUGUST just because you have a sudden change of heart, even if you are the best quarterback ever to play the game. Best of luck in New York, Brett. You won't see me crying.
By the way, I have a framed flood damaged Brett Favre poster for sale. I'll sell it to ya cheap.

Just look at him doing his "evil genius" laugh.....creepy.
So, here we go!
