I went, not to long ago and got my hair dyed. I asked the lady to dye it as close to possible as my natural color since I hadn't had it done in 6 months! The kind lady doing my hair replied "I'm sorry ma'am but it's incredibly difficult to dye hair to gray" WHAT THE...?!?!

Just kidding, that really didn't happen. But not only do I feel like I'm tearing my hair out I also know that deep down in there somewhere, my poor little hairs are quickly making their way to gray. Why? Here is the reason:
I know I've posted this picture before but it's the best picture that I've taking where you can see the sweet, innocent, adorable face, with quite a bit of 'tude.

Now, everyone, I'm a good mom. I promise. I have safety latches on things, I lock the doors, I have everything put up that could harm her, and I have developed the most amazing hawk ears that any mom would be envious of. I have even developed not one but 10 new eyes on the back of my head. I see all, and I know all. But somehow, Emily seems to sneak past all of my spidey senses and get herself into some sort of near death experience on a daily basis! Don't worry everyone, I only exaggerate... a little.

I have always thought that I was made to have many many children. I grew up and only child and always said I wanted a zillion. Well folks...I'm saying it now; YOU WERE RIGHT, to all those people who said "...oh, you just wait until you have one..." you were right. I am in fact beginning to contemplate if I even want another! Again...I exaggerate. However not by much. If all children are created equal...another might just kill me!

Internet Issues

So, My internet is out, done, finito. I woke up this morning and it had rained about 3 inches outside and my internet is down. I called and got added to the long list of people who were also having the same problem. WONDERFUL. Therefore, I might not posting for a while. Or maybe I will. I found this wonderful cozy little parking lot out front of a church that apparently offers free wifi! I drove around Paso with my trusty computer in the passengers seat and watched for a place to stop with full service just so happened to be in front of a church. That's not bad right?...RIGHT? :P Well so that it's not all in vain:

Mom, I just pretty-fied all of fish tanks...will you keep them fed for me? :P

I will be back in a week or so.

P.S. If anyone was curious...I always tell Aaron that there is not enough time in the day to get EVERYTHING done that I need to....Funny thing is that today, without my computer, I easily got all of my chores done and more!!! We just won't tell him that!

Viewer Discretion Advised

I debated for a while whether or not I wanted to put these pictures up. Although they may be heart breaking to some, for me, they are a constant reminder of how things could have been. Every time I see them I go and kiss my Munchy. So far, this was the scariest moment of my life:

Sleeping. This was after they put the IV in and she passed back out.
Note: the charcoal on her face and shirt.
Peacefully sleeping. Although I'm not sure how with all of those monitors on her!
You can kind of see the bottom one with the red clip on it.
She had about 15 of those all over her chest.

Aaron strapping her into the car seat strapped to the stretcher.
I wish this one was clear because it would have made your heart melt.
She was smiling and flirting with the EMT's.

Oh Twilight...I pitty the person that hasn't heard of the series. I think a mountain man would know what it is. Given I'm not psycho obsessed and wish I was a vampire, I did enjoy the series and the movies very much strictly in the fictional sense. However...I may or may not wish I owned a 'Team Jacob' shirt (Even though it said "I like my men tall dark and hot" Aaron said no) and I may or may not have waited in line for 6 hours to get the best seats in the house for the midnight showing (they were THEE best seats by the way). I'm going through a little bit of withdrawals and may or may not have been searching for trailer videos for the next movie and found this: I'm ashamed to might be slightly appropriate.

Emily is sick...again...enough said. My blog life ends as soon as she wakes up. Pray she gets better soon because I my mind is hanging on by a thread.

"nows" pronounced nose

"nows" is the dyslexic form of the word snow and what Emily likes to call it. So what did we do this weekend? We went to the snow!

Me and my bug
