Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about Jessica

1. Eleven days until Big D and A Girl come home! Yippee!
2. I'm plugging away on the book - I'm nearly done with three chapters. Not very good chapters but three chapters nonetheless. Maybe I should have done Nanowrimo but I'm glad I don't have that pressure right now.
3. While I was at kickboxing Tuesday, I was so mad about the possibility that the kids in our building won't be able to play out in front, I think I punched the bag a bit too hard. My hands have been hurting since Wednesday morning! As my instructor warned me, the bag's pretty unforgiving.
4. I had to come home early from work today because I have a horrible stomach ache. I don't know if I'm sick or if it's just stress.
5. M-Girl is so sweet - I've been in bed since I came home and when she needed me to get something for her, she helped me out of bed and held my hand while I walked (doubled over in pain). She said "Sorry I made you get out of bed, Mommy." and "Sorry you're not feeling well." She is the kindest child.
6. Have I mentioned that Big D and A Girl are coming home in 11 days! It's hard to think of much else.
7. I've gotten great advice from landismom and Metrodad regarding the bad situation at my condo building. Any other advice is welcomed!
8. Right now I'm eating Cambell's Chicken Noodle soup. It's good comfort food. Just looking at the can makes me feel better.
9. I know I said this before but I want to mention that Big D is incredible. My mother is going to Hong Kong for a visit next week. He's working his cute butt off trying to make sure that it'll be a good trip for her. He even managed to win her tickets to Cirque du Soleil which is playing near their hotel. (In fact the cast and crew is staying at the same hotel).
10. I ask again - how many husbands do you know that would voluntarily invite their mother in law to a foreign country WITHOUT their wives being there? I'm a lucky, lucky lady.
11. It's going to be really hard to come up with thirteen things - I really need to get back in bed. 12. I need a haircut.
13. M Girl promised to paint my nails this weekend. I can't wait!

I hope you are feeling better!!

and, your husband definitely gets kudos for inviting MIL over--- I can assure you that my dh would not voluntarily invite MY mother anywhere without me there to serve as the intermediary! haha.

I hope you are feeling better soon!

That's really cool about your dh and your mom, you ARE blessed :-)

Leanne said...

Hey girl! My hubby has suggested that my mom come live with us. I think he's agreeable because he knows she'll decline everything he offers. haha! I either give him too much credit, or not enough. I can't figure it out. :P

I hope you're feeling better!!!

My DH thinks my mom is great...HA! I don't think he would invite her on vacation though.
