Beatled Out

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

A copy of Wii Fit should come with your health insurance. I am totally serious. I played it at Angie and Joe Mac’s house Friday night, and I am seriously obsessed. It is so fun, and I broke a sweet. The best part…my butt and abs hurt today! What could be better. I subscribed to an RSS feed that shows me when it becomes available on any of the major retailer web sites. I must have one! For real, if you don’t like the gym, get one of these! Way worth the money! There is something motivating, yet infuriating, about having a Japanese video game tell you that you’re overweight. And when you step on the board and it goes “ooow!,” you just want to hula hoop until you bring the damn thing!

So Maggie’s renal ultrasound results came back on Thursday…they didn’t see anything of concern! They only checked for kidney structure, not function, but they said everything looked good. We’ll have the tests for kidney function in the next few weeks. Maggie has her eye appointment this Tuesday, so I will update when we find out about that.

Maggie did really great this week with Joe Mac. He is so great with her! He held her hands and they walked all around the house for like 45 minutes. He took her outside, and he worked with her on all of our therapy goals. I was so impressed! He even fed her once. I’m so excited about this. I can actually get some work done, and know that Maggie is getting the attention that she deserves. I love it! She really seems to much more balanced and confident with her standing and walking now, and she just seems to be getting a little more adventurous.

I finally got a couple of projects finished, and hope to have two more done by mid next week. I’m super excited! I do have more new projects coming in, but none of them seem quite as involved as the ones I’ve been working on. Hopefully it will be a little less stressful with the new work than it has been with the latest projects. They’ve all been great projects with great clients, but its just been a lot to handle with Maggie diagnosis and appointments and all the work. It would be great o be a bit less stressed out all the time.

Maggie’s Granny and Grandiddy are getting back from England today! I’m so excited that they finally took the trip, but I will definitely be glad when I know they’re safe back at home. I was proud of myself for not worrying too much while they were gone. I’ve only worried on the days when they were traveling by plane or train, and I was mostly fine with it. When I talked to them yesterday, they said they were about “Beatled out” (they went on a Beatles themed tour). I think they ended up having a great time, though they didn’t like London so much. Too big, too noisy, to fast. I can totally understand. I can’t wait for them to get back and we can see all of the pictures!

More good news…Jonathan and Kate had their baby this week! Jack Sylas (calling him Sylas) was born on Wednesday. He weighed 8 lbs. 6 oz. He is so cute! The perfect combination of Jonathan and Kate as far as looks goes, and really a handsome little man! I was very glad that Mommy and baby were doing well, but even more glad that Sylas didn’t decide to make his appearance two days earlier when his mommy was sleeping on my couch. Congrats to the happy family!

Tyler’s car is having troubles lately. Its leaking oil, we replaced the battery yesterday, and now it won’t start. Turn the key and nothing happens. No noise, nothing. So, he is driving the Mustang, which leaves me with no car. Not that I have to go anywhere most days, but the next few weeks are full of times where I’ll need to have a car. I hope this gets resolved quickly. I know the Infiniti has like 300,000 miles on it, but I just need it to last until we get into a new house. We can’t afford to get a new car right now. Keep your fingers crossed that “TwInfiniti 1″ pulls through!

Here are some recent pictures for your viewing pleasure :)

This is the Daddy bird who built a nest in our fern. His babies have hatched, and now I can get back to saving my pitiful fern without a bird coming after me!

Maggie hanging out with Great Aunt Trish. Trish LOVES babies, and especially loves Maggie! Maggie wanted to get at her glasses :)

Why do the girls always attack the boys?

Daisy, who wishes I would put the camera down and go get that furry tail thing for her to play with
