Night-time Phone Calls

Okay, I've just got to throw this one out there. If you received a phone call at 10 minutes to midnight, and you answer it...who would you expect it to be? I would expect it to be a friend or family member in trouble, or needing something really bad to call that late. No I had a telemarketer call me at midnight. It woke me and the kids up and I'm fummmmmming mad. So what would the rest of you do?

Night-time Forays

So sometimes I have to get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night....don't know why, but I do. Anyway, one of the first things I do is stop in and check on the little ones to make sure they're still in bed, or that their leg is not stuck in the crib!!! Well as I was walking into the bathroom last night, I looked at the tub and noted something big and black in the bottom of the bathtub. I have a nightlight on in the bathroom, so I couldn't really see what it was in the bottom, so I flipped on the light and found a giant spider. Well usually I smash them and toss them in the toilet or garbage can, but as I got looking closer at this huge spider, I discovered that it was a Hobo Spider. Well my friend had just been telling me about these nasty spiders, so then for the rest of the night, any breeze across my arm, or any slight noise, I was jolted awake with the knowledge that a huge Hobo spider was bearing down on my arm, neck or leg area....needless to say, I didn't sleep much after that. I will be spraying my house next week. So that brings me to my next night time item of terror. Well sometimes I like to look at my friends blogs in the middle of the night, due to the fact I can't sleep, or because I don't have someone in my lap or asking a million questions, and I'm able to actually read what's happening in their lives. Well one of my lovely daughters has done this several times, and will turn the volume up on the computer, so that when I visit some blogs, that have music, I nearly wet myself with scare-dom because of the sudden blast of noise. Not to mention the terror that I've just woke up my two little I've now learned two things....Always check you bathtub for spiders, and NEVER trust the volume on the T.V. or computer at 4:00 in the morning!!!

Baby Partridge

Well Here are the first pictures of our new little one. The Dr. called baby, a Gummy Bear, and I believe this is the best description for these first pictures. Baby's head is up top (pointy chin) with two little arm and leg buds sticking (slightly) off the body.

Baby twitched and wiggled while we were doing the ultrasound, and it was fun to see our new little one wiggle around. I just got sick today, or else I have the flu...either way I've been puking for hours now and it sucks...but I thought I would share some pic's of baby Partridge!!!
