Today was THE day, and other stuff.

Last weekend was Jilly's last time with her dad. Today he left for Norway, with her little brother. Before leaving to the airport, he called her as she got out of school to say goodbye. Listening to Jilly say goodbye to her little brother got me all teary. Jilly seemed ok in the van on the way home, I think it was a front she put on because her friend Jackie was with us. As soon as Jackie got out of the van and headed to her house, Jilly grabbed me and hugged me and cried. We took it inside and hugged and cried together for about 40 minutes. I feel so sad for her. I hope she is able to adjust well, and that they are able to talk frequently. Please continue to keep her in your thoughts.

In other news...Money sucks. Or should I say lack of it sucks. Sucks big. Because of a mess up, my husband accidentily paid our mortage twice this month! While that is good to pay extra from time to time, now is a BAD time to do it. We are super low on groceries and now we can't get anymore until next week. Yesterday I used up most of my money getting the necessities that will hopefully get us through. I really hope I can work on the potty training with Bree so we don't use so many diapers, because that is something we might run out of. I'm thinking positive though (trying anyways) it is a good time to really work on potty training, and its a good time to diet, since there aren't any good snacks in the house! LOL

Speaking of potty training...Today, Miss Bree was wearing her super cool Blues Clues big girl panties. I kept asking her if she needed to use the potty, and she said no. Well...a bit later, I heard the sound of pee hitting the floor. I looked over at her and saw a wet spot on the carpet, and streaks of wetness going down her legs. I said to her, "Oh Aubrey, did you pee your panties?" She replied back, "yes mommy, and I pee'd on Tigger too!" Tigger is our cat. Tig was laying on a blanket Bree had on the floor, apparently Bree was standing over top of Tig when she had an accident in her thin big girl panties...and it leaked out onto Tigger. I at first thought she was being silly...until I felt the cat. Tigger didn't seem to mind much, she just laid there, debating on if she was going to go back to sleep or not. I washed her up good with a baby wipe.

Since we are talking about Tigger...she is a cool cat. She has 6 toes on each foot. Neat eh? Sissy our other cat is special as well...she has a chunk of hair that sticks up on the top of her head. My husband has tried cutting it off, but it grows back the same way. She is very odd.

Thats it for now...Toodles.

Well, since you have been trying to potty train Bree, I thought I would try it tonight with Tom-Tom. He pooped all over the floor!!! GROSS! Maybe he's not ready yet! lol I will try again in a couple of weeks.

I hope Jilly will adjust well to not seeing her dad as often. They can still talk over the phone and IMS, though.

At least you won't have to worry about the mortgage next month!

LOL, only Bree would pee on the cat. HAHA.

Poor Jilly, I really feel for her. She is going to really miss her dad and brother.
