365: Day 20, 21, 22, and 23

I have a corneal ulcer and had to use these drops every 30 mins. Apparently some people have to be hospitalized for these ulcers and they can even lead to blindness. The worst part is I can't wear my contacts and they want me to change to disposables.

Jake is brewing his first batch of beer and wine.

Yes he has a doggie mat and a crate but this is his favorite spot in the house (not counting lap sitting).

Kirsten opened the mail this morning which would not have been a issue except this Netflix envelope had a DVD that was waiting to be returned to Netflix.

Project 365: Day 14, 15, and 16

January 14, 2010

I've always had a thing for peach flavor. I loved Peach Fango soda as a child. Now that it has become almost imposible to get the Fruit 2 O cases at Sams with the peach flavor, I am glad I found a new love.

January 15, 2010

It's nice to connect with others that share my passion.

January 16, 2010

I got this heating pad as a party prize at Madison Nursing Home (my 1st nursing job). I think it was the Christmas party. I was the youngest employee there and they offerred to trade my gift with something else but I didn't have a heating pad so I was fine with it. That was about 12 years ago and my little heating pad is still working. I slept with my heating pad on all night and my laptop, heating pad and I spent a little extra time in bed this morning after breakfast.

Project 365- days 10, 11, 12, and 13

January 10, 2010

We went to Mori's Japenese restaurant but Kirsten had Daddy take her to the restroom and refused to come out. Apparently she decided she wasn't ready to give them another try. Jake took me for my birthday last year and the start of the show when they do the big fire show scared Kirsten. Outback had a 45 min wait so we went to Chilis where we were able to walk in and be seated immediately. Kirsten informed us during dinner that she saw a lady with a "pig nose". She is noticing flaws in people lately from limpss to imperfections. We are working on teaching her to whispers things to us if she is talking about someone else.

January 11, 2010

Cold, Cold Cold! Send the sun back to FLORIDA! This week I tried to used my drivers license to scrape the ice off and all it did was make scratches in the ice.

January 12, 2010

Kirsten is going through a phase on getting up for silly things after we put her to bed. I can deal with once or twice but I think we had about ten this night.

January 13, 2010

It was Daddy's night off. I picked Kirsten up from school and we headed to the mall to grab dinner and see the Chickmunk's movie. We grabbed Chic-fil-a and attempted to take it in the movie with us (our theater use to allow this) but we were stopped at the entrance and told they are no longer allowing outside food or drink. So we sat on the bench and ate. We missed the first few mins of the movie. Kirsten was frightened by a few parts where she thought the Chipettes were going to get hurt and she love the movie.

365: Day 7, 8, & 9

January 7, 2010

Kirsten was excited to return to ballet and tap after being out 2 week due to the holidays. She still has over a week until gymnastics starts. We are all excited about that because they moved her up to the kindergarten class so no more Mommy/Daddy & child classes.

January 8, 2010

Daddy turned 32 today. We got him a pie but didn't end up cutting into it because we took him to the Chinese buffet for dinner. We were going to go somewhere a little more high scale but it got late quickly. We will take him for a better dinner later in the weekend. He got his present shortly after Christmas, a home brew kit for making beer and wine.

January 9, 2010

It is usually more of a brunch. It's really easy because we like the packaged muffins that you only need to add water. The bacon is precooked and only takes 20 seconds in the microwave. The fruit varies based on what is in the frige. Our favorite is mixing fresh strawberries with mandarin oranges and peaches in strawberry juice fruit cups.

365: Day 6

January 6, 2010

Yes I live in Florida and it was 19 degrees today. There is a reason I live in Florida! There are talks that we may see snow flurries by the end of the week. If it is going to be this cold is might as well make it worth it with a little snow.

Project 365- Day 5

January 5, 2010

Today I worked 11:30a-8p. I work those hours on Monday and Tuesday. It is one downfall to working from home. It usually increases our reach rate though and the benefits of my job far out weight that one downfall. We are losing a nurse on Friday. She is one that was hire instead of me at first and then I was so awesome they basically decided to open a new position :) I can dream, can't I? They did open a new position though and my wonderful sup said she knew exactly who she wanted to fill it.

Project 365- Day 4

January 4, 2010

Baylee saw the vet for the 1st time today. The vet estimated that he is 12 weeks old. He is heart worm negative and did not have a microchip. I was finally able to relax and stop worrying that he would have a microchip and we would have to break Kirsten's heart and give him back to his owner. He slept most of the day because he got shots. I set his bed and crate up in my office. He was frightened but the porcelain dolls looking over his bed at first but was ok with them after the growled a few times and realized they didn't growl back. He also went looking for Kirsten several times today.

Project 365- Day 3

January 3, 2010

This is Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus. Kirsten got a fish tank for her birthday (10/31). We finally made it to the pet store for her to pick out fish in December. They like chasing each other around the tank and don't seem to mind that the fish tank apparently has a defect which makes extra bubbles randomly come out of the filter.

I learned that flickr will cut me off at 200 photo and since my goal is 365 photos I have switched to Shuttercal. Click here to a nice calendar shot of my picture.

Project 365

I've decided to attempt Project 365 this year. The keyword is "attempt". If I slack off then it may turn into a project 52 (a photo a wk) or project 12 (I may have made this name up, it would be a monthly calendar with a picture from each day I was able to take a picture).  At the end of the week I will be scrapping a page with the 7 (or less) pictures I took. I may get behind but hopefully I will at least get the pictures taken. If it doesn't work at this year, I'll just consider it practice and attempt next year! I plan to upload the photos to Flickr also. Click here to see album.

January 1, 2010

We attended a NYE party at Ms. Celia's house. There were 6 families and lots of kids. Amazingly all the kids made it to see the ball drop. New Year's Day was spent driving to Lake City to pick up our new dog from Aunt Nanct. we had lunch at Texas Roadhouse. After meeting Baylee and playing for a bit, we headed to visit with Aunt Vicky so Baylee could meet his new cousin, Taylor Dane. Baylee got car sick on the way to Aunt Vicky's and then graced her carpet with some smelly poop. Hope he does better when he is settled at home.

January 2, 2010

Kirsten (ok the whole family) is in love with the our new dog, Baylee. We went to several pet stores today in search of a few more items he needed. We got a halter leash, a sweater, a bed, a different type of food, a dog tag with his name and our phone # on it, pork dipped doggie bones, shampoo that smells like sunflowers, and poop bags. We signed up for our very own membership card at Petco. He is doing well with house training and has been accident free so far. We are taking him out very frequently and he tends to go to the door when he is ready too. We hadn't planned on allowing him to sleep with Kirsten but that is where is ended up last night and he is there again tonight too.
