And a few other random things.  Yay me. :)

Yesterday was our anniversary! I knew that Jeff had ordered me some flowers, so all day long I waited anxiously for them.  Once the afternoon hit, I went to the flower website to make sure they were actually ordered.  They were and were supposed to be delivered by 4:30.  I waited and waited.

Nothing. :(  They didn't come!

I checked again this morning and now they're in Jacksonville, hopefully to be delivered today.

Good grief, if anything should be delivered on time, flowers are pretty high up on the list.  I was so disappointed!  Hopefully they will come today and be so beautiful it will make up for the fact that they're late.

Poor Jeff feels bad too. :(

WIC Guilt

I signed Jonathan up for WIC today.  I have so much guilt associated with this!!  I should just let it go.

Guilt 1. That I'm not exclusively breastfeeding anymore.  About a month ago, he got thrush.  OW! Thrush makes breastfeeding excruciating!!  I wanted to quit then, but I stuck with it and when I couldn't stand another second, he got a bottle.  Whew, I made it though.  Then a little over week ago, he got it again!! I guess it never went away completely.  So he got more bottles again.  And I started some intense dieting, so all those combined made my milk go waaay down. Now we're doing formula during the day and breastfeeding at night.  I try to tell myself that he's still getting the good stuff from breastfeeding even if it's not exclusive.

Guilt 2. That I even accepted WIC.  We're not rich or even close to it, but when we budget and are careful we have enough for our needs.  But formula is expensive.

Guilt 3. The ladies at WIC tried to make me feel guilty that my other kids (and I) aren't on it!  Why, why, why? they asked. They started to make make me feel that I should put everybody on it.  When I finally got out of there, away from the pressure, I remembered that No! They don't need WIC!  I work hard to try to feed them well.  They don't eat a lot of junk, but eat meat, fruits, veggies, grains, and dairy.  So I don't need to feel pressure to put them on it.  Sure, then we would have more money for other things, but good food is more important than toys or non-essentials.  We have enough for our needs, and don't need all our wants.   

What a day! Time to just get over it.

In other news, today is our 6th Anniversary!  We'll be having a little family party tonight to celebrate. :)

I don't have a lot to say tonight.  Kind of like the last few nights as can be surmised by the quality of my posts. :)  Tonight I will iron, make another bow tie, wrap a wedding present, and watch some olympics.  Ta Da!

Maybe I'll be more inspired tomorrow.

The heat has been killing us.  Yesterday we went to a park for an hour and a half in the morning and today we just went to the playground in front of our house for 30 minutes and I felt like I was going to die.  I think temperature-wise, it's only in the high 80s, but the heat index is 112.  Yuck.  I feel so bad, because the kids really want to go out and play, but we just can't for very long.  I wish there were a mall nearby with an indoor playplace.  I have a feeling it would be very popular.  I'm learning that while most places stay indoors in the winter, here we play during the winter and hibernate during the summer.

This post is about how awesome my husband's chest is.

I asked Jeff what I should blog about tonight and that's what he said.  So that's what I'm doing. :)  

He's been working out a lot and has added quite a bit of bulk to his chest and arms.  So yeah, he's lookin' pretty awesome these days. :)
