Today was Fat Tuesday & I did not celebrate, to say the least. I brought Jax to daycare around 9 & got back & ate king cake while I watched that awful Bad Girls Club show. GOD HOW AWFUL. Bunch of cheap whores. I went to the store & spent 200 bucks on random food. The Lowes guys came over to deliver this: The one they brought last week when we moved in was dinged on the front door, so we ordered a new one.
I would like to say that I had a great day off, but I really didn't. I was R E A L L Y lazy. I picked Jax up @ 4 & he is already in bed. I fed him some apricots & green beans, gave him a bath, & a bottle....& he is passed out in his bed. Landon left for Mobile for a work thing @ 5am, so it's just Jax & I until 10 tonight. My plan is to be IN BED @ 8 pm. Reading Dexter. I doubt I read, though. I am so tired. I just want to take a hot bath, get into my comfy bed, & veg out to some HGTV.
Landon went to Mobile this morning. I really hate it when he does. I have to get up extra early. (like, 30 min.) So I can bring Jax to daycare & not be late for work. Then come home & be all lonely until 9 pm or so when he gets back. Right now it's triple sucky bc the cable man hasn't been able to get out here to hook us up this week, & won't be able to until tomorrow. Taking care of Jax by myself isn't a problem. He is @ a age (6 months) where he can sit up on his own & keep himself entertained if I put toys around him. Tonight, though, he is being extra "needy" & it has taken him almost an hour to eat a 6 oz. bottle. He wants it, then he eats for a second, then he starts looking around, then he wants to play with something else. I put him down to play & he is fine...for 6 min. Then he starts whining again. We have done this 4 times since I began this blog.
Playing is my fav.
No one to cook for means leftovers. It's Dorrito pie, ya'll!
I missed work yesterday bc Jax had Dr. appointments all day long. He had his RSV shot, his 6th month well baby visit, & a ENT check. His ears are SO infected. I hate it. All together he had 5! shots. He was a trooper though. He is getting tubes in his ears the middle of next month. I think this will help with the vomiting/wheezing/runny nose he has been having. He is ready for phase 2 foods & sippy cups. Next thing you know, he will be driving his own little self to the Dr.
The house is almost put together. What sucks is we have NOTHING. Living in that tiny house didn't allow us much room for a lot of furniture. Now we have an echo. It's weird. I guess those things come with time. What's important is we are now spaced out, instead of on top of each other. Plus, a nice sized yard, a big kitchen, a huge living room, & a EXTRA bedroom. Storage space x's 12,000!
Last night, Landon's parents & his brother, his wife, & their son came over for dinner. (I hate to even say anything on here for chance that someone would pass this along & then I would be "outed".) Landon's SIL is nice, I guess. We used to be best friends in college. But see, I'm over college. I'm over drinking & being loud & making a scene. Sorry. It's just not who I am anymore. Those WERE NOT my glory days, letmetellyou. So they come over with the 5 yr. old who forgets his manners everywhere he goes. That boy. All I can say is, when I was pregnant with Jax, & found out I was having a boy, I was scared. He makes me scared of little boys. The way he is SO disrespectful. It's just unnerving. Landon's SIL (who we will now call SIL) always sends M (her son) to Jax's room to play when they come over. I take a lot of pride in Jax's room & I hate it when M goes in there bc he pulls everything out, breaks things, tries to ride all of his baby toys, etc. It's a NURSERY. NOT a day-care for your son when he comes over. SHIT.
M was throwing pizza across the table, pretending to "smoke" with this foil he found (hello! not funny!), yelling @ his parents, had a major shit-fit when it was time to go home. I just..ugh..I will put it to you this way: JAX WILL NOT ACT LIKE THAT. I will not have that. I'm sorry, I know boys are boys, but dammit. No way in hell will I tolerate Jax acting like a effing creep when we go to visit someone. When your child plays in the master bedroom, you should probably remove them from there. If they throw food, punish them. Yelling "NO!" whenever you ask him to do something. Watching your child chase the owners cat around the house & scaring it so much that it is BEGGING to be let out, WTH? Is it me or I thought this was all common knowledge. It would break my heart to watch Jax turn out that way. It really would.
Ugh. Anyway. I'm just glad that isn't my child. I would be sad to go home everyday after work.
Last night was the first night in our new house. We love it. We started moving @ 10, & had everything out by noon. We still have things over there that we need to get (like the cat) & some boxes, but other than that, we are out. My bathtub is my favorite part of the house. It's BIG & it WORKS & it has WATER PRESSURE & the water gets SUPER HOT. Sucky part is: we don't have internet/cable right now. We ordered a FABULOUS new french-door fridge & it was delivered/installed today....with a giant ding in the front of it. Awesome. yaaaay.
I had to bring myself to the after-hours clinic today. I was going to get a little lunch from Whole Foods, but then all I wanted to do was lay down/ puke/ cry, so I drove up there. I got a shot & 2 antibiotics. Turns out I have an ear infection & respiratory infection. Right now, I feel BETTER. Not great. No more wanting to die in my car, though. That's a huge improvement.
Valentines night was great. Landon & I went to Kevin's & drank & ate about $80 worth of food. I got a little drunk on white Russians. Why I drank THAT, I don't know. We had a nice night. We went home with Jax & crawled in bed.
That's all, really. Not too much to say. It's been a pretty hectic 48 hours.
Ok. I'm already over moving. IN FACT. I still have about 4 hours worth of work to do, & guess what. I'm sitting here, with my feet propped up. Eating a Valentines Day cupcake. Because I wanna, that's why. Landon gave me $300 to go get my awesome duvet from Z Gallarie next week. Can't wait. I admit it. I'm materialistic. =[
Jax is @ Landon's aunts house for the day. Tonight, him & I are going to dinner. We love this small little place not too far from us that's on a river. It's a seafood place & it's G O O D. nom nom nom. I'm gonna nom nom nom on some fried hotness. That's what I'm gonna do.
I will update later tonight with the progress of Movefest 2009. I'm sure it will be full of bad language & bitching.
