Things and stuff

I am very aware that I am overdue for another post. However, I feel very scattered at the moment, so this might be a I'm-totally-rambling-in-efforts-to-catch-up-but-go-to-bed-soon post. Here are the important items I feel warrant mentioning tonight:

  • Casey's seizures have gotten worse this week--so much that he hasn't been able to go to work since last Friday. We went to Little Rock to see his neurologist today, and it looks like we're going back to the Seizure Investigation Unit at Baptist in 2 weeks. The doctor is concerned that the seizures are more frequent and severe, and he wants to make sure we're still dealing with the same thing.
  • I somehow miraculously created 120 tile coasters in 3 days and delivered all of them this past Monday. 24 sets went to Davis-Kidd Booksellers in Memphis, and 6 sets went to Aunt Janet to give as gifts to her Tupperware managers. In the rush of it all, I forgot to take pictures of the new floral set, but I hope to make it again and post it on my Etsy site.
  • Throughout the insanity of this past week, I have also been trying to prepare and pack for a week long trip to Kentucky to visit Kyle and Melissa Vath. I'm SO excited to visit them now that they're back from Tanzania, and I can't wait to see Mel as a beautiful pregnant woman! My friend Lindsey and I are packing up everything we own along with our baby girls and making the long drive to northern Kentucky together. It should be quite an adventure!
  • I am currently searching for peace. I usually thrive on being busy, but I'm feeling a little overloaded/overwhelmed right now. Too much to think about and do--not enough hours in the day. Hopefully, things will calm down soon.
  • Abby now thinks that she can stand up all the time, and she is driving us crazy with trying to pull up on everything! She almost has the crawling thing down, and the poor girl just can't sit still! There's always something across the room or higher up that she just has to get to. I know I will regret this later, but I really am looking forward to her being able to stand and move on her own without having to cling to Mommy and Daddy constantly. Here's my little crawler:
See that last picture? She just has to get that box! :) Ok, I'm sure there are other things I could mention on here, but it is definitely past my bedtime. I hope this was enough to appease the masses (*ahem, Becka*). :)

Early morning

Abby was having a hard time breathing at about 4:45 this morning (time for another cold, I guess), so I got up to give her some more medicine, clear out her nose, and rock her back to sleep. After I had her back in the crib, I realized... I was totally awake! Since I knew there was a Zumba dance class at the gym at 5:30 this morning, I decided I was just going to get up and GO! It is now almost 9:30 a.m., and these are the things I have accomplished so far:

  1. Folded 2 loads of laundry and started another load
  2. Worked out at the gym--I love Zumba!!!
  3. Taken a shower
  4. Put dishes away
  5. Prepped Abby's bottles for the day
  6. Made a pot of coffee
  7. Changed 2 diapers
  8. Talked to Dad
  9. Fed Abby breakfast (yum, rice cereal!)
  10. Had waffles and coffee for breakfast
  11. Rocked Abby back to sleep for a nap
  12. Washed tiles for sample coasters I need to make today
Hmmm.... maybe I should be napping, too! I'm afraid if I stop going, I might not be able to get back up! I also have to work from 3 - 8 p.m. tonight, so I'm sure I will crash when I get home from that. This is the week Abby turns 6 months old, so I can start taking her with me--more hours! This is going to be a very busy week, so I guess I'm just trying to start it off well. I'm working 25 hours at the gym nursery, and I also got another order of coasters from Davis-Kidd Booksellers in Memphis. I have until this coming Monday to make nearly 100 coasters--yikes! Looks like I don't really have time to keep blabbing on here! :)
