Watch your step... [Aug. 29th, 2005|10:34 pm]

i forgot to mention that joel broke his pinky toe two nights ago. he stubbed it/broke it on the chest downstairs that we keep sophie's toys in. *OUCH* i know it had to hurt so bad, but it must have been manageable because i didn't awake to any cursing fits. he went to Urgent Care, and the doctor gave him pain pills, but there's not really anything they can do about it. they can put pins in it or even amputate, but mainly joel will just have to deal with the pain. aww... i'd just tell 'em to cut it off... :) no, i wouldn't. that's gross.

hung out with friends today... lots of fun... realized that we (some more than others) have absolutely no table manners; therefore, we have no place eating at respectable restaurants. on that same note... do not "make-out" with your significant other while people are trying to eat... in that same respectable restaurant.

bye y'all!

my mama turned 47 on Monday... 47!! i hope i look that good when i get that old. well, i guess i shouldn't say THAT OLD. i mean... some people are just now having kids at 47. or maybe that's just in Hollywood. anyways, she and i, little Sophie, and Grandma and Grandpa Brewer went to O'Charley's to celebrate. mom ordered a drink that came in a really cool-looking glass... i wanted to steal it for her... you know, just slip it in the diaper bag, but it felt a tad inappropriate. then the O'Charley's clan came out clapping and singing Happy Birthday to her. I was afraid sophia would get scared, but she loved it. She must have thought it was for her... and it sort of was! :)
i'm trying to get Alex to go to church with me tonight, but she's not feeling very well. i think it's those $.99 pizzas she loves so much... GROSS... tastes like cardboard. "then why do you eat them," asks alex. because it's there... pure laziness. once i convince her to go to church with me, i'm going to work on getting her to go to BW3's after wards. i want to visit my brother-in-law. he makes me laugh.
i finally went to don and audrey's shop to get our art framed. she is so good at her job. together, we picked out some really amazing mats and funky frames. i'll post pictures when we get everything up. almost a year later, but our apartment is coming around.
well, i'm going to get sophie ready for church. she did so well last time. let's hope it's another good night.
love you all,
~heather

So, I was running so freaking late this morning that I didn't even have time to wash my hair. I felt really nasty all day. Ok... who am I kidding... I felt really nasty because I woke up so late that I didn't even have time to take a shower. I would have been okay going in a few minutes late, but I missed on Friday. I can't have attendance being a problem. I'm trying to get promoted. I want to be a lead in Quality Assurance, so now's the time to shine. (no pun intended... I usually take regular showers)

Joel showed me the newest and CUTEST thing that Sophia is doing. She pulls herself up in her crib, faces the mirror, then starts jumping up and down, laughing at herself. She's walking along all the furniture really well. She'll be taking her firsts steps soon.

This next part is just for Amy...
Sweetie, it was really great to hear something from you. Am I supposed to send a quick message to that email address you left in your comment? So you can get my address, right? It'd be great to talk to you. I thought of you just yesterday... I went out to get a yogurt at I Can't Believe It's Yogurt, and Jake Balline (spelling? I forget his last name, but the pervert in me remembers that it had "ball" in it.) was there with his latest woman. We didn't talk to each other, but I felt so old thinking about when we all went out that night... it seems so long ago. Girl, I'll talk to you later.

Okay, bye everybody!

Stephanie, I love you. I miss you. Get internet access soon, please.
Rian, I promise I will call soon. I really mean it this time.
Barb, I think of you every time I see that commercial for honoring nurses. You're the best.
Nicole, Sophia's been askin' about you... And I'd like to hang out with you too. :)
Alex, "I think you left your lights on." This must be code for, "You need the exercise... walk outside, then walk back in here, k?" JERK!!!!!!

ok, i really need to get it together... i called off work today. i woke up to the alarm and hit the snooze, but the snooze didn't go off. once i knew i was going to be late regardless of how quickly i got ready, i was just draggin'. it got to be about 10ish, and i just decided to stay home. isn't that awful? i just could NOT wake up this morning. it was the biggest struggle just to keep my eyes open long enough to call the right people in the office. i'm going to bed right after i get off here, so i should feel nice and refreshed tomorrow morning. it's such an adjustment to have all those days off, then have to get up at 4:30 am, but being tired is no excuse. i have responsibilities now.
sophia is so smart. she loves her new stand up toy... you drop balls down the middle, and they circle around like a gum ball machine, then they pop out of four different tubes at the bottom. i'll drop the ball down the middle, and she immediately looks down at the openings from the tubes because she knows that the ball will appear soon. also, she stands up with the toy and hits the noise and light button over and over again, and she squeezes her stuffed animals' paws because she knows that some of them will make noises if she squeezes it. those seem like little things, but her spacial skills are developing really well. i'm proud of her. she's still practicing standing by herself. she gets so excited. it's cute.
well, i'm going to bed.
great news... we got a new washer, so no more trips to the laundromat!!
