Thursday Five-3/24/11

After being postponed for a little hospital detour last night, I'm finally getting around to posting this week's Thursday 5! Go on over and link up with Nicole and the others to join the fun!


The nurse that took care of me at the hospital last night was outstanding. She was so nice and very professional. I only wish she would have been there when it was time to start my IV and draw labs. I had lab drawn at the clinic, lab drawn at the hospital, and an IV. Should have had 3 sticks. Each time, they missed the first one and had to stick me again so I ended up with 6 sticks instead. A couple of them REALLY hurt today too. Boo!

I am so proud of my husband. He has been working lots of extra days and hours lately to take care of our family. I'm so thankful that he sees the value in having me and the kids home.

I'm hoping the 2 units of blood I got last night will help me feel more energized. I really have been feeling rather tired lately, but I just thought it was a combination of age/weight/stress/keeping up with kids. Time will tell, but I'm looking forward to feeling good again.

Since we had to be in town during lunch time yesterday, we got to eat out. We haven't been doing much of that lately, so it was a special treat. The food and service were short of spectacular, but the company was good, so we had a splendid time anyway.

One of the most wonderful things in the world is hearing my kids laugh and play when they don't know I'm listening. A couple of days ago, Sierra disappeared into her room to play. When I hadn't seen or heard from her in an hour or so, I assumed that she had fallen asleep and went to check on her. As I got closer to her doorway, I saw her moving around on the floor of her closet. Then, I heard her whispering. She had her dolls and Barbies in the closet playing. She was having such a great time that I didn't want to disturb her, so I just stood there for a few minutes and listened. I love to hear them play when they're in their own little worlds.

My two get so caught up in playing that they don't notice me sometimes. It's adorable to listen to them interact and imagine together. Those days are certainly numbered.
