If you can believe it - today Kevin and Johnny left and went to a skate shoppe! Yep - they left me all alone here for a couple of hours and they went shopping. I could almost here this sigh of 'all is right in the world' when Kevin walked in the door with a new skateboard. Yes, yes - I know - he can't even ride it, but it is the one thing that he is most in tune with. The one thing that he NEEDS to have near him. I foolishly left his other ones in FL so he hasn't had one in his possession since we got here in Feb. Poor kid.
BUT - all is well now. And who knows...maybe it will get him working at PT and OT all the more with the goal of being able to ride it someday.
(oh and I already took a picture of it, emailed it to him and it's now his background on his iPad. You shoulda seen his face when I surprised him with that!).
So I got to stay home ALL ALONE!! Yipee!! I scrubbed the kitchen down and then prepped some snacks/lunch for the next couple of days and then called my parents and actually had an uninterrupted phone call with them. Amazing. I still can't believe he went and I am going to try to push Kevin to get out with Johnny every Monday. I know they are both anxious for the movie "The Expendables" and I think that's on next week's agenda.
And don't you think it's just a miracle that Kevin can go shopping kinda by himself? I mean, he knows how to use his debit card and everything. I am allowed to give him a monthly allowance out of his VA benefits and he does really well with it. Obviously we don't really do much so there isn't a whole lot of money spent each month, but it still just makes me so happy that he CAN go shopping and he CAN use his own debit card.
Ok, I need to get Kevin's bank accounts reconciled so I am going to sign off. Before I go though, to the anon person that asked about shirt sizes - we are both mediums.
And technically - it's only 1 1/2 days before Moe gets here. And Moe? Don't let me back out of vacation. I am having a little bit of anxiety at times about leaving him. I know Breezy can handle it, but still...
Oh shoot - and speaking of Breezy - I have had a few phone calls lately and everyone wants pictures of the preggo girl, lol. Here she is:
She is somewhere around 4 1/2 months pregnant. She thinks she felt the baby move last week one day, but now she is questioning it. She just went to the ob/gyn on Thursday and the baby's heartbeat is really strong. The doc also told her the baby is about 10 inches long and it's head is the size of a walnut.
I am still having all of her symptoms. I have been nauseous for a while now (I even threw up last week after eating pizza), I am constantly peeing and oh the heartburn! I have not had heartburn since I was pregnant with Kevin. I ONLY get heartburn when I AM pregnant. Totally not right for me to be having a sympathy pregnancy. I'm tellin' ya - if I feel even one tiny contraction...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
