The Best 24 Hours

   Good evening my Jland family. I hope everyone is doing well. I just put Rebecca to bed. She was so tired, and was falling asleep on the couch. She's had a long day today. School from 8:30 to 12:09, then home to change her clothes. Doctor at 1:45 for a physical and a chicken pox shot. I am happy to say she got a clean bill of health. The doctor said she is a very healthy 6yr old and very smart too. She also had an eye exam, which is so funny. The nurse was giving her shapes in a row. The nurse would point to a shape, say in the 4th row, Rebecca would tell her what the shapes were in the next row under it, lol. Nurse said no problem with Rebecca's eyes. She has the eyes of a hawk, lol. Rebecca is 47 inches tall and weighs 67 lbs. He said just to keep an eye on her weight, and if I can to help her be more active to possibly lose 5 lbs. She is only 5 lbs overweight for a child her age and height. So we're gonna cut down on the cheese and cracker intake and add more fruit and veggies and more water. She loves water with ice cubes and a drop of lemon in it. Tonight instead of a fattening snack she had cantalope. She got her chickenpox shot and took it like a real trooper. All she said was, ouch. And she got a dinosaur sticker that said Super Patient. Then we went over to Emma's so Marissa could hear all about the needle and the doctor. Around 6pm Rebecca said she felt hot. Her cheeks were flushed, so I took her temperature and it was 101. I gave her a dose of Tylenol and an hour later, she felt cool and her temperature was down to normal. She got really sleepy and is in bed sound asleep.

Anyways my "me" time last night was great. I got all comfy on the couch, lit my candles, got in my jammies, had a pan of very hot soapy water and sat on the couch watching CSI soaking my sore feet and then gave myself a pedicure, foot scrubbing of a build up of dried cracked skin. I used Angie's body butter and rubbed it all over my feet and heels and ankles and let me tell you it felt awesome. My feet look great, feel great and are so soft now. And best of all they don't hurt from the cracking skin because it's all gone. Angie if I didn't say it before I'll say it now, you have the best products I have ever used on my skin. And I thank you so very much for having Canyonsun products. Jim would tell me I need to see a foot doctor cause of the skin cracking so bad. I don't think so, not anymore. I can't wait for him to come home sunday so I can show him my feet.

Anyways I watched CSI and I was so happy Sara was found and she opened her eyes in the helicopter. But now I hear she is alive but will be taken from the show soon? That sucks. I like her. I think she is a very good actress and plays her part well. After CSI ended, I watched Without a Trace. It was really good. These 2 shows were worth the watching. And I got to relax, pamper my feet and hear every word said on both shows because I was alone in the livingroom. Jim is away on his fishing trip and Rebecca was in bed. I felt so good this morning. I even slept good. After I took Rebecca to school and stood with her until she went inside with her teacher, I went to Emmas and spent the morning with Daniel and Adrianna. Daniel kept running over to me patting my arm and saying, Me wuvs you mommom. I swear that boy melts my heart. Then he says, you no come over yeterday. That's how he says yesterday, lol. Emma said he kept looking out the window all day yesterday for my van to pull up. But I stayed home and did my errands. Rebecca and I made sandwiches for dinner tonight. And we had a pickle. Tomorrow my day is planned. In the morning I am going through all Rebecca's clothes and sorting them out. Keeping the ones that fit her and boxing the rest up to be mailed away. Mopping my kitchen floor and going to Emma's to do a load of laundry and having dinner at her house.

Jim called this morning to see how we were doing. He said it poured all night and lightning and thunder was bad. He said this morning he woke up freezing, the temperature dropped about 30 degree's outside. He was headed over to the restaurant to have coffee, then he was headed to the river to do some fishing. He uses his flyrod when he is salmon fishing.

Well, guess that is about it for now. I'm going to go to bed in about an hour, and I hope I sleep good again tonight. I wish you all a wonderful weekend. I am going to read some journals, then head off to bed.
