NOTE: Posting my "daily page" a bit late today since heavy winds led to power outages last night here in MD!
JOURNALING: Was still up at 4 in the morning this morning. It started off as me working late on Project Life, but then I couldn't sleep and couldn't breath, and then Evan was up for at least an hour. I think I fell asleep somewhere around 4:30 am after taking two Benadryl to help with the congestion and terrible hives that eating Chinese food for dinner caused all over my body. I was up at 6:40 am with Evan for good - and Cameron joined us at 7. I was a zombie with 5 million hives. Mom came over around 9 am and she amazingly watched the boys from 10 am -12:15 pm while I took a NAP! After meals, looking at possible Easter gifts and clothes for the boys online during their afternoon naps, etc., we got out to the grocery store at about 5 pm. Got two full carts worth of groceries and sadly this should last us about a week or two. We got home around 6:45 pm and were still feverishly unpacking groceries when Craig got home. I made spaghetti for dinner since it was fast and easy but still didn't get done feeding everyone until 8:15 pm. At 9:15 pm I have just finished getting the boys into bed and although I'm looking forward to starting on my February project life pages (I just finished catching up on January last night), I think I'm going to take the night off and get some SLEEP!
Sidebar: Every night when I take Evan up to bed, I let him roll around on the floor in his diaper, playing, giggling, and having some “mommy-Evan-time”. I look forward to it so much and I really think he does too. It's really a memory I will cherish.

Modified words on a card from Cindy Schneider's "Layered Cards: Winter 2" set for the "roll polly" card, slightly modified "our life" card from Cindy Schneider's "Layered cards: everyday 8" card kit, used photo card from Cindy Schneider's "collage 1" card kit. Used a few recolored solid papers and labels from Sugarplum's "Life in Real Color" kit, used "love this" from S.C. Lingerman's "The good stuff" kit.
