Boots!

I'm excited - I got two pairs of boots, which would normally cost about $180 combined, for $32.00! Gotta love eBay. Here's what I got:




Can you tell I like boots? I needed some shoes for fall and winter. A couple of pairs of pumps and I should be set.

J is doing well with no bed rail. Last night he didn't fall at all - not on the floor, not between the bed and the wall. Such a big boy. And now he's starting to ask about letters and what words start with. He'll say (for example), "Mama, what does Pop-Tart spell?" (That's how he asks what something starts with, and he was eating a Pop-Tart at the time.) So I'll tell him, and then I can ask him if other words start with the same letter. It's really fun, and it's so neat to see him learning things. Last night, though, he used it as a tactic to delay bedtime, the little stinker. He was asking about his Thomas characters - first he asked what Bertie the Bus started with, then James. I told him that Bertie started with B, just like bed, and James started with J, just like his name, and that it was time for J to go to bed! I tell you, he'll try anything not to go to sleep.

I've suddenly become a popular girl - two e-mails and a wink on Match! I've e-mailed one guy back - he's a fellow Baylor grad, and it sounds like we have a good bit in common. He graduated two years after I did, and I don't think he's anyone I knew while I was there (although it's sometimes hard to tell from online pictures if you recognize someone or not!). So we'll see what happens!

I totally overslept this morning - I didn't wake up until 7:10, when J started talking. I usually remember hitting snooze, I wake up enough to do that. Not this morning - I have no conscious memory of even hearing the clock. So the day started off running. But I showered, got dressed, got J dressed, and got a Pop-Tart and milk for him to eat in the car, and we were out the door by 7:45. Not terrible, I've done worse! I was at work by 8:30 - again, I've done worse.

And work is - well, work. I'm doing what I can, just trying to make it through another day.

I had to laugh about J asking you how to spell stuff. A. asks me all the time "Mama...how does ____ start?" when she wants to know what some word begins with.

The boots are nice...gotta love ebay! Oh and I see Baylor got a win last weekend!
