My New Nephew

I finally got a picture of Jay. Needless to say, he has his mouth open. Looks just like his mom. (When she reads this she'll kill me.) I think he's adorable. I know you'll fee the same.

Some Adult Conversation Needed... Please...

I know you've read several times about how much I love my children, but, when they are all you have to talk to, you tend to look forward to sales calls just to hear the voice of another adult.

I know children are a blessing from God, and I cherish mine. There is nothing I would trade for the two I have. I just miss having another adult to talk to. I spend most of my time at the house with my 3 year old while my 7 year old is at school. When my husband comes home from work, he's so tired that the last thing he wants to do is talk. He just wants to relax for a little while, which I can understand. Things might be different if there were some places I could go to that cater to stay home moms, but this is a small town, and it's not exactly the hot spot for things like that. Everyone other female I know works, and I hate to bother them there. To me that's an unspoken rule. For example, my best friend, Dru, and I have a code set up. As soon as she answers I ask if she's busy. If she says yes, I say call you later and hang up. There is no reason for her to have to explain why, she's busy and can't talk, enough said. It doesn't hurt my feelings. I guess that's why I enjoy doing this so much. I have no idea if anyone is reading this. I like to think someone is, but I do it to keep at least a small amount of sanity. Children can drive a person crazy. Hahaha. This is one way to stay in touch with the outside world. Besides, I'm not that much of a phone person. I would much rather talk to someone in person.

It gets so bad sometimes that I try to reach some of the guys on the forum that I go to. I know that it's not the same thing but it helps. As you can tell from my post I like to talk. I'll talk about anything. Sometimes it drives my husband up a wall. I can meet someone for the first time and in just a few minutes have their life story out of them. I try not to ask prying questions, I don't like to give away too much personal information about myself. I just really like to meet new people. I like to hear where they are from, what's it like where they live. Things like that. People fascinate me.

Anyway, I'm going to go for now. I really need to get some sleep. I've got a lot to do around here. I won't bore you with the details, suffice it to say, I need to do some heavy duty cleaning. If you're in the neighborhood, come by and help. I promise I won't turn down the offer.

God's blessing to you always.
