happy day

Okay, okay....I know I promised some more blog action and then I fell off the wagon...again. My apologies. Truth is, I've not been all that exciting. I'm still laying low and trying to squeeze in as much sleep as possible. However, I got some super duper news this afternoon. I've reached the 3 week mark after surgery. I visited with my surgeon and he gave me the green light to start solid foods. I came straight home and ate a piece of peanut butter toast and 1/2 of a banana....and it was the best toast and fruit I've eaten in a long time!!

Just because I have been sitting around the house sulking over the foods I can't eat, doesn't mean a little action hasn't found me....

When I woke up this morning I saw a mess of sticks and whatnot on the front porch. I knew the robins were out in full swing lately, banging their little heads on the front windows of the house and snatching up worms from the lawn. So I quickly realized the mess on my porch was made by a bird. Sure enough, right on top of the porch light is the start of a nest some wee mama robin is making herself. Sadly, I don't want the nest there because, well, because of all the bird poop I'm picturing on my furniture below. I took the start of a nest down and swept the debris off the porch.

Looks like I've got a little war on my hands though as that bird has been giving me the stink eye for most the morning. And, when I came downstairs after getting ready for the day, wouldn't you know it....a new nest was being built. And Ms. Smarty pants used all of her supplies from what I took down the first time. Then she sat on the railing and stared at me through the window.

Other exciting news involves Miss Divine. She lost yet another tooth two night ago....annnnddddd, she swallowed it in her sleep. Poor girl. She has lost more of her teeth down the ole pipes than have actually fallen out of her head. She is a pro at writing the tooth fairy a note in place of a tooth. When she woke up the next day after leaving a note she told Mr. Hawthorne that the tooth fairy didn't like her note because she only left a dollar. Wha?!

Speaking of kids: El Fuego and Miss Divine went back to school today after spending their Spring break at baseball camp. But because Miss Petite's preschool is in a different school district, she is on Spring break this week. And just in time....she came down with a cold. Ah well...I can't wait until next year when all the kids are on the same schedule.

We've been watching lots of movies lately. The weather has been nasty so we occupy out time indoors watching flicks. We did take the kids to the theater to see the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie, which was fun. I love the cast. So cute! Mr. Hawthorne and I recently watched Fair Game which was also a great movie. It sort of made me mad though. But I enjoyed it none the less.

My mother came up to visit last week too. She mopped my floor and my dogs chewed up her glasses. And that concludes my week wrap up. Good times, good times.

Yeah for food! That has to feel good!
The war of the bird's nest, we've had that too. Ours was on one of the vents in under the roof. We finally screwed in metal, then the woodpecker would peck on it…..lil' pecker! WAR! Good luck!
Yeah and sorry about the tooth, oops! Only left a dollar, thats funny! The tooth fairy leaves a dollar for our kids too! So no worries, it's across the board!
SO nice of your mommy to come and help take care of you and the kids! Hopefully she didn't kick your dog too hard over the glasses. :o) Is this the same barking dog? Just asking… :o)
