Quick check in...

Hey gang. Sorry I haven't been around much. This working full-time thing is seriously cutting into my free time. LOL! Between that, Tommie, and birthday parties out the wazoo that the girls were invited to, I seriously don't know how I'm finding time to breathe, let alone blog.

For those that have been asking, no more real news on Tommie. They're going to close him up tomorrow and hope for the best. They left him open after his surgery because his colon/intestines were SO swollen from the infections, that they felt it was best to leave him open and hope that the swelling went down a bit. But tomorrow, they HAVE to close him up and just hope that his body starts fighting off the infection. We need some hard prayers this week, guys. We just need his body to find the strength to fight it off and work towards some sort of recovery. So whatever you can muster would be so greatly appreciated.

In other news, today, Grace asked me if she could have a puppy for her birthday, and Hannah declared that she wants to be a big sister and that I need to have another baby. Hannah's even named this future, non-existent sibling (Sawyer or Dido (?!?!) for a boy... Sarah for a girl...). What was so funny is that 10 minutes after talking about it and moving on to other things, Hannah declared, out of the blue, "Hey mom. I'm serious. You ARE having another baby. I'm not kidding around here." LMAO! Oh darling, if it were only that easy. LOL!

And now, I'm off to bed. I have a brutal week ahead of me at work and need to get my ass to bed if I have any hope of surviving it. Thanks again for all of the thoughts and prayers for Tommie! Words cannot describe how much we all appreciate it. And I truly mean that...

Did she pick Sawyer from LOST? Now, that guy is HOT! :)

We prayed for Tommie yesterday at my Bible Study.

Thank you all so much for the thoughts and prayers for Tommie!

And actually, I suggested Sawyer. She originally said Hunter and something else, and I said, "How about Sawyer?" to which she agreed. And for the record, that suggestion has NOTHING to do with the dude from LOST. My friend, Emily, has a 6-year-old son named Sawyer and before I was even actually her friend and heard her son's name, I soooo wanted a son named that too. And that was BEFORE "LOST" was on the air. LOL!
