On a positive note: she seemed to be in very good spirits last night and this morning. Her only concern while we were waiting for surgery was that we find her a cute doctor to marry! She kept wanting us to put a sign on her bed that said: Man Wanted to Play Dominoes and Cards!!
At least her spirit isn't broken!!
Thanks for your prayers...

I practically have the entire movie memorized. Wanna know some of my favorite lines? Sure you do... here they are in no particular order:
Mike and Sulley at a crosswalk next to a giant monster]
Sulley: Hey, Ted! Good morning! [Ted clucks; light changes and they cross]
Sulley: See that, Mikey? Ted's walking to work.
Mike:Big deal. Guy takes five steps and he's there.
Mike: Roz, my tender, oozing blossom, you're looking fabulous today. Is that a new haircut? Tell me it's a new haircut. It's got to be a new haircut. New makeup? You had a lift? You had a tuck? You had something? Something has been inserted in in you that makes you look... Listen, I need a favor. Randall was working late last night out on the scare floor. I really need the key to the door he was using.
Roz: Well, isn't that nice? But guess what? You didn't turn in your paperwork last night.
Mike: He didn't... I... no paperwork?
Roz: This office is now closed. [Roz closes the window on Mike's fingers]
Sulley: Hey, Mike, this might sound crazy but I don't think that kid's dangerous. Mike: Really? Well, in that case, let's keep it. I always wanted a pet that could kill me.
Charlie: 2319. We have a 2319!
Needleman: So I said, "If you talk to me like that again, we're through."
Smitty: Oh! What did she say?
Needleman: You know my mom. She sent me to my room.
TV Anchorman: If witnesses are to be believed, there has been a child security breach for the first time in monster history.
CDA Agent: We can neither confirm nor deny the presence of a human child here tonight.
Witness #1: Well the kid flew right over me and blasted a car with its laser vision.
Witness #2: I tried to get away from it, but he picked me up with his mind powers and shook me like a doll.
Witness #3: It's true! I saw the whole thing!
Professor on TV: It is my professional opinion that now it's the time to *panic*!
Sulley(to Boo): That’s a cute little dance you got. Almost looks like you gotta-Oh.
That's enough of the quotes. Now let's enjoy some movie clips. If I have to watch this movie constantly, the least you can do for me is to watch these snippets. Love y'all!

1 Timothy 2:1-3 (from the Message)
Monday, January 19, 2009
- Jackson has been sleeping like a pro in his BBB without threats of any kind. We have it down to an art now. Jackson gets put in his bed and one of us will lay down with him for a minute and tell a story to just talk, then we say prayers, and then we leave. Jackson sometimes yells out from his bed for one of us to come back, but we just holler back that he needs to stay in his BBB, and then magically he does. It’s amazing!
- Jackson got a phone call from Santa Claus yesterday telling him that he has some leftover toys and that if Jackson did not cry during Sunday School, that Jackson would be able to get a new toy. Sunday School was still sketchy, but we survived, and Jackson is the proud owner of 2 new Matchbox construction trucks.
- And the biggest one of all….Jackson has just about mastered pooping in the potty. He has told us that he needed to go 4 times this weekend and then successfully made it all 4 times. We are so proud of him! I can see the light at the end of the Pampers tunnel and it’s getting brighter!!!
Have a great Monday!

Worked like a charm....
No tears, no fussing, no calling out for Mommy and Daddy...he just went straight to sleep after our little talk. I should have plenty of time to save up enough money for his therapy one day. Desperate times do call for desperate measures! Have a great weekend!

Jackson: "Mommy, I come cuddle."
Me: "Jackson, you have to sleep in your room."
Jackson: (now on Jeremy's side of the bed) "Daddy, will you go cook me some grits?"
Jeremy: "Jackson, it's the middle of the night. It's not time for grits."
And then an adorable pajama clad Jackson gets toted back to his BBB where he gets placed ever so gently on his bed, with no covers on mind you because apparently sheets/bedspreads are of the Devil, and then without fail, as soon as we disappear from sight the whole thing starts over again.
Requests last night: Grits, milk, to go potty, watch Silly Monsters (aka Monsters, Inc.), cuddle with Mommy or Daddy (whoever doesn't have him at the time), and repeatedly telling me that his bed is broken although I have no idea what he is talking about on this one.
Finally, after about 10 times of this entire process repeating itself, Jackson fell back asleep. At 3:30. We're all exhausted. I can't even think straight. Jeremy's first words to me today..."Your eyes sure are puffy." Thanks for noticing.
So for now we will just continue channeling Supernanny and continue to take him straight back to bed without talking or entertaining him unless y'all have a better idea. I'm all up for some suggestions...
Now, if y'all could please excuse me....I have to go get some caffeine. I have a feeling I'm in for another LOOOONNNNNGGGG night. Bye now!

Extreme hunger -Check
Unusual weight loss-Um. Not so much.
Increased fatigue-Why of course...
Irritability-Now that you ask..
Blurry vision-If my eyes were squinted then yes...I had blurry vision.
It was official. I had diabetes. I was so convinced that I even made my Mom take me to the doctor.
I didn't have diabetes. I still don't....yet.
I think Jackson has inherited hypochondria from me...
His newest thing is that he will tell me that he needs to go to the doctor. His doctor's name is Dr. Diebel. He recently saw part of the movie Dr. Doolittle on TV, and now he thinks that all doctors are named Dr. Doodle. It's rather funny.
So yesterday we are on our way home from school yesterday. He says:
Jackson: "I'm not feeling very good. I need to go see Dr. Doodle."
Me: "You're not? What's wrong?"
Jackson: "My tummy hurts....my head hurts...I have a little cough. (insert fake coughing sound here)"
Me: "I'm sorry. Do you want some medicine."
Jackson: "No. My knee hurts.....and my chin....and my finger...and my cheek."
Me: "Do you need to go see the doctor."
Jackson: "No, I don't want to get a shot in my booty. I feel better now."
End of discussion. Jackson miraculously felt better after he determined that there was a possibility of a shot in his booty.
It's amazing at what the fear of a needle can do for you :)

Trying on Daddy's belt. Aren't the pajamas so cute on him!
Jackson is such a cutie playing with his completely gender neutral itchen-kay!
I have loved watching the changes that he has made over the course of this year. I can't wait to see how much he changes during 2009! Stay tuned for more exciting adventures in parenting!!!

Try to ignore the fact that it's hanging slightly crooked on the wall. I was very proud of how it turned out. I even signed the bottom corner like a real artist. As if :)
I had a blast, and the picture looks great hanging in my living room. The color gold of the cross is dead on with the yellow walls in our living room. I couldn't have matched it better if I tried.
Confession: I even brought it to work today to show it to some of my work buddies cause I'm just a dork like that. Have a great weekend y'all!

Within the last few days I have heard some gems that I just had to share with y'all. Such as...
"I never ever never ever take a nap."
"I never ever never ever drink my milk."
"I never ever never ever take a bath."
"I never ever never ever clean up my toys."
And my personal favorite...."I never ever never ever go potty. Never. Ever." (This was said as he was pottying before bath time). My response to him...."Good luck with that kid."
I couldn't make this parenting stuff up if I tried...but boy, do I love that kid!!!

So, brilliant me decided to head up into the attic last night to begin the process. I was so excited about getting started that I even decided to forgo eating supper. That's dedication! I pulled the attic door down and because Jackson loves to climb into the attic, and since that could perhaps be slightly dangerous, I had Jeremy raise just the lower portion of the attic ladder up so Jackson couldn't reach it. So effectively, I was trapped in the attic (at Jeremy's mercy) although I could still see down the stairs. Looking back I see how weird it is that I willingly allowed myself to become trapped in the attic, but it wasn't like the attic door was completely closed. Because I couldn't be interrupted, I was a mad woman getting rid of stuff. I was on fire! I would make piles (trash, keep, or give away to family, friends, or church) and then pass them down the stairs to Jeremy and then he would take them out to the back porch for the time being. Everything was going great, and I was really working my way through the attic.
I came across a box lid full of small, square glass vases. I quickly decided to put them in the pile to give away and had Jeremy carry them out to the back porch. Because it was raining, Jeremy had been putting our "go through with family pile" in Jackson's playhouse on the back porch. When Jeremy tried to fit this box lid full of glass vases through the playhouse door, it wouldn't fit and the vases tipped and started falling. Jeremy tried his best to catch the vases before they fell and basically grabbed one of them as soon as it broke on the back porch.
Oh mercy...the blood.
Keep in mind that I'm stuck in the attic. As in, there is no way for me to get out without Jeremy lowering the ladder down for me. From the attic I hear the back door opening, and then immediately hear breaking glass. the back door opening again, and Jeremy call out, "Um. Amy...I need some help. I'm bleeding pretty bad."
I'm still stuck in the attic.
Finally Jeremy appears and pulls the attic ladder all the way down, and it is just chaos. Jeremy is bleeding, Jackson is crying because Daddy is hurt, and I'm just running around crazy trying to find a red hand towel to put pressure on the cut to get it to stop bleeding. Jeremy is running his left thumb under the faucet and every time he pulls it out it is just gushing blood. Usually I don't get sick at the sight of blood, but this was bleeding so much that I started gagging. The phrase "bleeding like a stuck hog" comes to mind.
Now we have Jeremy bleeding, Jackson crying, and me gagging.
Finally we get it together and just as I'm getting us ready to go take Jeremy for stitches, we get the bleeding under control and Jeremy decides that he can drive himself to Pri-Med. 2 hours, 6 shots of lidocaine directly into his thumb, and 2 stitches later, he gets back home almost in one piece.
So there you have it: Cleaning has now been proven to be dangerous for your health. Jeremy has the stitches to prove it...
