Catchup Post - Long

So I've been MIA the last few days..mostly because I was off of work and I tend not to use the internet at home.  To make up for it, I've brought pictures for my week in review.

So I told you we went to Zoo Lights on Thursday...here are some pics of my girls with the friends we went with.
My girls are the two on the left

Friday we went to Moo-ey Christmas.  The girls had a lot of fun and it was kind of neat to feel like you're in the country or something.  These darn city folks'll pay for anything...even just to see some cows on a dairy farm!  LOL!
My girls on the hayride

Yes...it was like 50 degrees out but what can I say?  We're in AZ!  It felt cold!

She's ready to move to the farm!

Yes...the sweatshirt is 1 or 2 sizes too big but whatevs.

She held this chicken for like 2 seconds!  Can't believe we caught a pic of it!

They want a john deere for Christmas :)
Saturday and Sunday are a blur.  We did some shopping, we bought a Christmas tree (which I haven't taken a  picture of).  We decorated said tree.  Hubby had his port surgery on Tuesday.  Surgery went well but they ended up overfilling him during the surgery.  The stupid nurses in recovery apparently couldn't tell the difference between "stuck" and "nauseous" so they sent him home without him being able to keep liquids down.  After an hour or so at home and everything he drank coming back up, it was BACK to the doctor's office for an unfill.  We didn't get to see the doc because he was in surgery all day so his assistant did it.  After going back and forth a few times, they ended up taking ALL of the fluid out of the band so he's literally stuck at square one.  He's beyond frustrated with the whole thing.  He hasn't lost ANY weight since being banded and feels that it's been a giant waste of time and resources.  I can't blame him for feeling this way.  i just wanted to offer this story up as an example of when band life isn't rosy.  I still believe once he can actually have good restriction and get the band working for him that it WILL work for him and he'll lose weight.  But until then, it's beyond frustrating.  Once we were back home and picked the girls up from school, we had dinner and then relaxed in front of the fire...a perfect fire if you will that yours truly built all by herself.  There's a lot I don't like about our new townhouse we're renting but it's the first time we've had a fireplace.  This made the rest of the day not seem so bad...
My perfect fire
Wednesday was spent recuperating.  I got all my laundry washed, folded and put away so it was good.  I'm back at work today and it was REALLY tough waking up this morning.  Ugh.  I have back to back meetings and should really be doing that instead of blogging and this has probably rambled on enough so I'll wrap it up soon.

I did have a NSV I meant to report last week but forgot.  The morning of my procedure I realized that I don't own a pair of granny panties anymore.  At first, I was like...nice!  Then I realized that I HAD to have a couple pairs to get through a couple weeks after this procedure.  So on my lunch break I ran to the pharmacy to see if they sold them.  They did.  Here's the NSV.  The only concern I had was that the pharmacy wouldn't sell them at all...not that I wouldn't be able to find a pair that fit me.  The second NSV came when I put them on.  They were too big and they weren't even the biggest ones you could buy.  So now I have 3 pairs of way too big granny panties at home just in case I ever need them again. LOL.  I'll probably throw them out and it's a weird NSV to have but I'll take what I can get.

Has the Christmas spirit found me?  Yes and no.  Putting the tree up almost got me there but the surgery stuff knocked it back a couple notches.  Doing better with it though.  Happy Thursday everyone!

I just came to your blog to post on your last post to say...Manda where are you? I'm so glad you posted.

OK...tell hubby...don't give up. Keep his head up. This is going to work and it is going to start working soon. I'm glad his surgery went well.

The girls are so adorable.

I hope it gets all worked out for your hubby and soon, please tell him he is in my prayers! I so agree with you, that it will all work out, once they get the right amount of fluid in his band.

You babies are beautiful!

I am glad to see you back, miss you!

Your girls are super CUTE!

Cece said...

Your girls are doll babies ! I'm sorry for what your husband is going thru but he had you there for moral support. Personally, I would take the granny panties and toss them into the fireplace .. you're too much of a young babe to be wearing them :)

Amanda Kiska said...

What beautiful girls! You look great too, big sweatshirt and all. I hope things go better for your husband. That sounds pretty miserable.

Amy said...

I agree with Cece - burn, baby, burn!!! :) :)

Glad to hear hubby got through surgery okay, just sorry to hear he still has to wait some more to get his fill sorted, don't you just feel like slapping the doc accross the back of the head sometimes :o)

I'm glad y'all had an eventful, fun week. Love the pics, you all look so cute! :)

Hope hubby gets some restriction soon. Must be frustrating to not have lost anything so far. :(
