I feel as though my legs have been switched with someone else’s. My calf muscles are messed up, I can barely walk. So today, nick has been showing me how to do some stretches for them and I took a hot bath too. I have to take some Motrin before I go to work this evening- but I am feeling a lot better. I’ve been pretty much lounging around for last couple of hours watching TV. And I just put Miss Abby down for a nap, so now I have some time to get ready for work and type this blog entry. I’m typing now, because I know that I won’t have the energy when I get back from work later. I love jeans and t shirt day….hang on that’s pretty much everyday, LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

So the new sheets on the bed are really nice and soft considering they’re from Walmart. Nick complained how warm it was in bed last night, pfffft. It’s always too hot or too :p I personally slept like a log last night, in fact I think I slept too long, 10 hours. Ah well…back to six hour stretches for me tonight :p

Some dumb people in the street have still got their Christmas lights up on their houses. It’s almost February people! And I know their Christians, so it’s not like they have an excuse. Stupid people. I took mine down weeks ago- January 3rd. I don’t get it, are they just lazy or something?!

Nick wants us to take a trip back to the UK to see my parents in October. I’ve still not got my visa info sorted out yet, and I don’t want to run the risk of not being allowed back into the US. I’m saving at the moment to save some money for going to see Rhonda in March- Oklahoma. We’re hopefully going to be going to Checotah- the home town of Carrie Underwood as she only lives about a half hour drive from it. I’m gonna be taking Miss Abby with me, it’ll be a lot of fun. I am really looking forward to it. I still have to plan it over with Nick, but I think he’ll be okay with it. I hope. We’re gonna take a Greyhound bus down there, the ticket is going to cost me about $150, but I don’t have to pay for Abby because she’s under the age of 3. So that’s always a money-saver ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll be taking my camera with me so I’ll get some great photos and I’ll upload them when I get back ๐Ÿ˜€ Since it’s almost the end of January, I just have February to save for it. Hopefully, Nick will give me a bit of money from the tax refund to pay for the trip ๐Ÿ˜‰

And so, the weekend has finally ended. Not that I did a heck of a lot- I went to Walmart to buy laundry detergent, dishsoap and new bed sheets. Oh and the grocery store to buy more grub for Miss Abby. I’m telling you, she eats like a pig and you’d think that she doesn’t put on any weight. It’s ridiculous. I can feel the eyes of all the other parents in the waiting room at the doctor’s burning into the back of my skull- all because she’s a tall, skinny kid. Well, excuse me that my daughter isn’t the jolly tubby, roly-poly baby. At least my baby is cuter than yours. Ner ner ner ner ner! :p

And yes, I buy my bed sheets from WALMART. And no, before anyone says it, I am not white trash. When your husband sweats as much as mine does, then come and tell me you don’t need cheap bed sheets. Besides, having a baby means that you can’t buy bed sheets from Crate&Barrel or wherever it is that you fancy folk buy your housewares from. Bugger the lot of you.

I’ve discovered that Abby is a mini Carrie Underwood fan. It’s hilarious. When she hears her singing, she squeals and then gets up and starts dancing (well bouncing around) to her. We were watching the NFC Championship Game between the Carolina Panthers and the Seattle Seahawks and Carrie comes on TV singing the National Anthem. She squeals and starts dancing- TO THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. I think the insanity torch has been passed ๐Ÿ˜€

I need some more tea. And I’m cold, but I can’t go to bed yet as I have to wait for the new sheets to come out of the dryer. I am one of those kind of people who buys new sheets and washes them before using them. I just don’t like all the starch in new sheets, and you never know what kind of germs are on new sheets fresh from the shop…oh Lordy stop me now. I’m turning into my mother. Eek.
