OUR BED IS FINALLY HERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM A LITTLE EXCITED

O.k. it is finally here after almost 6 agonizing months of waiting !!!! Here is the whole story (skip to pictures if you wish to not read the whole story). Anyway way back in May we ordered a bedroom set of furniture for our new home. Mind you Jason and I have not had an actual bedroom set in our 12 years of marriage (just something we dreamt about). So we ordered the bed ( Cal-king) special order, and were told 6 weeks Ha Ha. I know you are now wondering why two people as large and tall as Jason and I require a California king size bed, well, we just do. So after the first 6 weeks of waiting the bed comes and it is damaged, so it is returned. After the second 8 week period, the next bed is half way up the stairs and I notice that not only is it the wrong color, it was the wrong bed ( old English something). I was so upset !!

Now here it is October 21st and it is here !!!! I hope you are feeling my excitement and can rest easier tonight knowing Jason and I finally have a headboard to rest our heads on to read in bed !!!

Now all I need to do is put on the finishing touches and find some pillows for the shams. Have a great day !!!

Work in progress.... Maddison's room

Here is a preview of Maddie's room (we are still working on it). I painted her letters and Daddy made the display on the wall for them. We decided not to paint her walls because she could not decide on a color, it changed everyday. The flowers are fun and she loves them.

A day off for Daddy !!!!

Finally Daddy got to take Thursday off and we were so happy to have him with us the whole day !! Mommy took Maddie to Preschool and let Daddy sleep in, then he picked her up from school and she was so happy. After we all had a nap we took a hay ride out to the Pumpkin Patch. It was so much fun and such a great day. We really love the way Daddy makes time with him special. I asked him if he would rather go golfing and he said he would like to hang out with his girls !!! We love you Jason..... and you are so handsome.

Enjoy those precious hours.....


I have been thinking lately a lot about time and how precious it is. Jason and I used to get to spend whole days together, not really doing anything, just being around each other. There was a time in our lives that we were in school together and worked together, and of course lived together. Now I am lucky to get a few hours to spend with him. It is also amazing how having Maddison really changes the time we do spend together.
We knew the first year of residency would not be easy, however I never really thought about how much more time he would be at the hospital versus being home. So when he is home, Maddie and I try to remember not to mow him down with hugs and kisses at the door (truthfully it's his favorite part of the day). And we have managed this last week to make him a peach pie and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that he can take to work with him. I think his last day off was 2 Sunday's ago and tonight is another all night call shift, so we get to see him sometime tomorrow afternoon.
He has sacrificed so much for us, when was the last time he got a few hours for himself, to go golfing, or see a movie or just workout at the gym?? It's funny how we take time for granted. We now really treasure those few hours that we get to be together. I also know in my heart that Jason is enjoying the practice of medicine and that he is really learning so much more, and I am trying really hard not to be so selfish (very difficult for me). I just really miss my best friend... I love you J
