Well, here we are.....another Monday!! This weekend didn't go by as fast as they normally do for some reason. (which is not a bad thing, of course!) I got some cleaning done Saturday, but yesterday was a little bit of a lazy day. The past 4 days have been pretty rough with Tyler and sleeping in his bed. He's still waking up early morning to get in bed with us and not going to sleep, but for the past 4 days now, he's had NO nap at all! It wouldn't be so bad, but boy is he grumpy later in the day if he doesn't get a nap. Which is telling me he still needs his nap daily! Saturday night though, he was grumpy and crying a little when we went to bed. I asked him what was wrong and he said his nose didn't feel good. I told him it was probably stuffy from crying and he said it just didn't feel good. So, I had him blow his nose which only seemed to help a little. I ended up giving him some Benedryl and he went to sleep pretty quickly. Once again, he was awake at 3:30am yesterday trying to get in our bed. I told him he needed to go back to sleep. He said he needed more medicine since his nose wasn't feeling good again.....before I could get out of bed, he was already up and heading to the bathroom! I gave him more Benedryl, had him go pee, then took him back to bed. After only a few minutes he did go back to sleep and slept until 7:15 yesterday morning. He did try and get up in our bed when he woke up, but we both told him he needed to stay in his bed. All day yesterday he was so blah.....poor little guy, he just wanted to sit and watch his favorite shows....we watched Little Einsteins, Spongebob and Wonder Pets almost all day long! He has had no fever, so i'm thinking it could just be an allergy bothering him. Last night he went to sleep fairly easy, but he woke up at 12:30am. I heard him get out of bed, so I sat up and he was walking around in circles....then he was heading right for my dresser!! Next thing I know, he is walking into the I called him and he screamed! My poor baby.....he was so out of it. He climbed up in bed with us and Zane was cuddling him. I went pee and when I came back, they were both passed out again. I figured with him being sick he would be ok sleeping in our bed. This morning he seems to be so much better, but still wants to lay around and watch his favorite shows, so I'm going to let him do that again today. He didn't eat much yesterday, so when he woke up this morning he told me his tummy was VERY hungry......he ate a little bit of a waffle and drank some chocolate milk so far. Hopefully I'll get a really good nap out of him today!!! I'd love to take one with him so I can catch up my sleep, but that most likely won't be happening......

Today is supposed to be the start of some cooler weather here!!! All this week it's only supposed to be in the 80's during the day and mid 60's at night. I can't wait until it's in the 30's and 40;s at night. We LOVE to keep it cold in our bedroom!!!! When it's super cold out, we open up one of our bedroom windows and put a window fan in and have that on all night. Ahhh, nothing like fresh cold air coming in......well, unless a skunk decides to make an appearance. YUCK!!!!!!

My awesome SIL Pam sent me an email about a consignment shop called Once Upon A Child, that buys children's toys and clothes. I had totally forgotten about that place!! Zane and I talked about doing something with Ty's old toys and clothes and we mentioned that place a year or so ago, but I forgot all about it. I would love to hold onto Ty's toys and clothes for when we have another baby, but right now the money would help us out greatly!!! Especially with the holidays right around the corner. So, I think I'm going to go upstairs in a little while and start getting some of his old clothes and things out. I'm sure I'll need to wash all the clothes since we have two dogs and a cat that shed non stop, but I don't mind really. Hopefully this Thursday (Zane's day off) we'll have some things we can take to OUAC and they'll buy from us. I guess we'll just have to wait and see!!!!

Well, I need to get moving so I can get some things done downstairs before I venture upstairs. Tonight for dinner I'm making meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans and biscuits....YUM-O!!! Hope everyone has a great day!!!!!

You have so much more things you can sell than I do. I can't even get ride of clothing cause they only want 2T and up. I've have only 4 things that qualify to be sold. I just hope it's enough to get Jessica a Mickey Mouse for Christmas. I'm also looking for something that teaches the alphabet like her cell phone. It's slow and says the number every time she pushes the button. She caught on to numbers fast. I just hope they make something for the ABC's. Everything that I have that does the alphabet sings the song and well she can do small parts but it does not she her what the letter looks like and that’s important. She’s a hands on child and I’m going crazy trying to find something that does that. Anyway hope things go great for you and that they pay really well.

What kind of Mickey stuff are you looking for? I'll keep an eye out for any deals I find for you....and for any ABC stuff I think she might like!

We called Once Upon A Child yesterday and they said they would take any size clothes for kids, they just needed to be freshly washed, folded and in some kind of container. The only thing is, they only take the first 35 people a day to buy things from. I'm just hoping we're one of the first one's there tomorrow morning! :(
