Holiday Recap

Alright so Thanksgiving went better then I could have hoped for. We had dinner at Brian's folks house my parents also came over.
Then Nolan stayed the night with Grandma and Grandpa Dickman for our anniversary. Brian and I rented a movie and just enjoyed each other. Friday morning we got up and went to Fred Meyers for socks. After we were done getting socks for all family members it was back to bed.
Saturday we headed up to a family meet up in Spirit lake Washington woot. That was boring and well boring. I did get to meet back up with my baby so that was nice. Then we headed up to the Smiths Nolan slept for almost the whole drive. Friday night Shalisa feed us this really yummy Pot pie.

Saturday Shalisa and I meet up with Kristi while the boys played. They were installing Leopard on the mac's.
I had a great visit Nolan did alright not the best but not horrid.

oh Shalisa what is the magazine you get? I tried looking it up but couldn't recall the right name.
thank you for having us.
Justin and Kristi it was great meeting you face to face.

These are the people that know you best. They also know what buttons to push and when to do so.

That said I love mine even if they drive me bonkers. I am not really looking forward to the Holiday's this year. Our wedding anniversary falls on Thanksgiving this year. Then Friday I guess there is a thing at Brian's Aunt and Uncles. Don't get me wrong they are very nice people I just don't want two days of them.
On top of all of this my folks are coming over to the Dickman's for Thanksgiving day. I know it was my idea but, now I'm having second thoughts.
Is it bad that I feel this way?
part of me is really happy one person will be missing thats mean. Oh well its the truth I have bent over backwards to get to know her. She on the other has not sad but true after five years she has know idea who I am.

Sleep Over

Last night Nolan had his very first sleep over. Things went great he had a blast and slept great. He and aunt Tami played and snuggled.
Mommy did alright she cried a little when things hit that he was not home. We did enjoy having some "grown up" time wink wink ;). We went out to dinner and hung out at BN looked at at few books. I had to take a sleeping pill to get some sleep last night.

Right now he is taking a good long nap we have been down 1.5 hours.

insert wacky saying here.

Lets see I have time for a real update while Nolan sleeps.
The "pusher's" won in the end Nolan has not nursed in a month. My supply died a little over 2 weeks ago. I think the mastitis was the last straw. I miss it and am very sad that Nursing has come to a end for us. I will nurse longer with baby number 2 if there is a baby.

Sleep that is a joke for the last 5 nights Nolan has been waking every 2.5 or 3 hours. We might be in the 6 month growth spurt. None the less it really stinks and makes us very crabby.

I have been thinking about getting a Holiday job. This being at home thing is killing me and making my Depression worst. I looked up MOP groups but there are none that don't meet during Nap time.

Being a stay at home mom just might not be for me.
We keep talking about going back to church and then don't . I am not sure how it works with a 6 month old who is clingy.

I think thats about all for now. there are other things I could say but, I am not sure who reads this.
