Great Weekend

It was a really nice weekend. I just can't believe that Kyle had surgery on Friday...he is completely normal!!! And call me crazy, but I think his speech is already clearing up some. He's always chattered a lot, but most of what he said, we couldn't understand. Yesterday I told him to lay down so I could change his diaper, and he said, "okay I will laydown." It was crystal clear! Amazing!

Nathan was supposed to leave Saturday morning for the UTEP game, but they were so excited that they left about 9p.m. on Friday night. He was traveling with the Eric's. (Eric his business partner and Eric his friend) He left and about 30 minutes later he showed back up. He says that he thought this was a "man" trip...meaning they were going to be roughing it, and wouldn't need to pack a bag. Well apparently the Eric's packed bags, so he packed him something too. They drove to Las Cruces and got tired, so they stopped at a hotel, to "rest." Well they ended up at a casino until 8a.m. that morning. Then decided to go to sleep. The hotel room was so small that there was only one bed and so one of the Eric's slept on the bed, and Nathan and the other Eric slept on the floor on either side of the bed. They ended up being so tired the next day that they thought about skipping tailgaiting, and going to a movie so that they would have a place to sleep. Needless to say, they had a blast and said that was the 2nd best game he's ever seen them play. I didn't watch it, I didn't know it was televised. Earlier in the day I was watching OU play and folding laundry and Madi comes in there and says, "Oh Mom, thank you for turning this on!" She went to Oklahoma about 6 months ago with my mom to see some of our family, and so now she's an OU fan. Anyways, they rolled in about 8:30 this morning, so pretty much two nights without sleep. They got lost when they were leaving El Paso. Nathan was driving and they were looking for the interstate, and they got on the wrong road. All of a sudden they see a big sign that says, "International Bridge" and some warning about having firearms and going to the prison in Mexico. They had a gun in the car...so they got a little scared. Ever since we saw "The Hills Have Eyes" we have been a little freaked out. That is the most disgusting movie...I thought I was going to throw up! Hence the gun in the car.

Next week is TCU. I'm not for sure what I was thinking when Nathan asked me if it was alright if we went to all the games. He always goes to the home games, but he wanted to go to all the out of town ones. For one, I didn't think he would actually do it, and for two, I think he drugged me. B/c I didn't actually think about what that meant. He is going to be busy every weekend until like the end of November!!! I want him to be able to do the fun things that he wants, but man I hope I make it until November. I am planning on going to at least one home game, maybe two. And I am going to take Friday off and we are going to go to Abilene and go to the zoo, and spend the night and then one of the Eric's will pick him up on their way through town Saturday, and we will come back to Lubbock. He is definately making it up to me, and I am planning on having a nice Christmas. I will probably milk this for all it's worth, why not, right???? The kids and I had a lot of fun Saturday...we went to Hobby Lobby and watch out everyone, Christmas is here!!! All of their Christmas stuff was out before the 1st of September! They were having a 50% off sale, so I got some things I had been wanting. Probably by the time we finish decorating this house, we will decide we want a new house. Then we went and ate lunch with my sister Jenny and her friend Ashley. Then we went and spent some time with my granddad at the hospital. Which by the way, he is doing great. He will be released tomorrow to the Care Center in Slaton. They have a rehab center there, and he will be doing rehab for several weeks before heading back to Post. His mental state has really improved since he had his surgery on his hip. We have all been really relieved! After we visited him, we came home made dinner and then we made cookies. So even though Nathan was gone, we had a fun time, but we are very glad to have him back.

So the week work starts tomorrow...the last 2 weeks I've only worked 4 days each week and it's amazing how much having a day off during the week helps you get things done. Someday, someday soon!!!!

Okay this is little off subject, but mosts of my post are. The little neighbor boy is about to drive me crazy. When we're inside the house, he sits on our porch and looks in the window, or the front door. I like to have the blinds open and have the front door open too, but he won't go away!And when my kids see him, they go crazy!!! He wants Madi to come out and play, but there is no way I am trusting a 7 year old to watch my daughter. I told him that she can't come out there by herself, b/c then Kyle wants to come out too, and he said, "I'll watch him!" Yeah right. I don't want to be rude, but that drives me crazy! Go home!!!

Well tomorrow is September 11th. It's crazy that it's been 5 years! I don't think any of us will forget where we were when we heard the news. I was pregnant with Madi, and thinking how scary it was to be bringing a child into this world when that had just happened.

Well I have to go. I think I am just going to have to shut the front door. I can't take it anymore!

Glad Kyle is doing so well, lots of people say they notice an immediate improvement. It took us a while. Miss you.
Oh, and yes, I couldn't wait to get my fall stuff out. It goes by so fast and I wanted to enjoy it for all its worth. I figure if my mother-in-law can put out her Christmas stuff the end of October, I can put out fall in September!
