Oh Goodness!

Oh Boy!  So much is going on around here.  Let's see what can I tell you about first.  Well the most exciting thing to me right now is that we got a new computer!!  We got the white MacBook.  I love it, love it, love it!  I have no idea how to use it, but apple is pretty cool about explaining things so I think I will be able to figure it out.  I am going to need you other Mac people out there to help me out I am sure.  
BellaRose is also changing a lot lately too.  She is starting to not want her morning nap. I am a little up in the air on how I feel about that.  I know she needs that sleep still.  She did not take it yesterday morning and got a little whiny in the evening and was still a little whiny this morning, needless to say she is already asleep.  We will see how long she stays asleep.  She is also not eating like she used to.  She used to eat everything, and now it it becoming much more difficult.  She is a fruitarian pretty much, but I want her having veggies and other good stuff.  I would love to hear what you have to say on that front.  From what I understand it is just one of the many phases that they will go through.  I guess this is all good.  She is continuing to do well when I take her to the gym.  It does my heart good to hear how much they like her and how sweet they think that she is.  I heard SO many comments when she was a baby about why she cried and the different theories on why she was like that, which, I might had, I believe to be ALL hogwash, thank you very much!  My heart hurts sometimes because it is so filled with pride and love for this special little bean!

And in local news, we have NO gas!  This was the line at the shell station here in Black Mountain.  It was insane, cop cars, people yelling, people standing around waiting for the line to move.  I read online this morning about how this one student drove around for hours looking for gas and found none.  Now I may not be the smartest person in the world, but I know not to drive around for hours looking for something that is currently in my tank, and that I would be wasting by driving around!  I was sitting here thinking about how nice to is to live in a small town and how I really can walk to everything that I need even the grocery store, but I guess this is the reason we don't have gas either, because we are so remote.  I guess there are advantages and disadvantages to this town we chose.  Good thing I only have to go to places here and have no need to drive to Ashe-Vegas.  
Well I think that is enough for today.  I am off to figure out flash cards, USB's, purl stitches, knit stitches, and all things MAC!

I heard about the gas. Mom sent us a link this morning about how they are out in Asheville. When I was driving to see JP in Rockingham this weekend I needed gas and I went through 3 towns before I found some! It was stressful I thought I was going to be stranded in the boonies.

Way to get to pictures out there, it's like we are all co-reporters for the Black Mountain news:)
You tell them Sunday, I like that you used the word hogwash, ha! Nobody knows a baby like their mom! I'm so glad she like Cheshire, how exciting is that to have her do well in the real world!
Oh very jealous about the Mac! so cool! where did you get it? I need to come see it! does it have a camera on it?

becky i need you to come see it too b/c i think that you will be able to teach me a lot and help me with the USB thing. I am going to the gym when she wakes up and then the grocery store and will be around this afternoon if you want to come over. Warning, my house is a disaster!

oh and i got it a Charlotte street computers by the airport (i had 1/2 tank of gas). i would recommend them to anyone. I spent forever in there. they are awesome and know what they are doing. they might be able to fix your laptop they do repairs on everything. yes it does have a camera as well, but have no idea how to use it.

Becky Swann said...

Oh I will come over later probably like 1:30ish I might just show up and take pictures of your house juuuust kidding

I guess that is one good thing about living in the west, our gas comes from somewhere else! We are thankfully still under 4 bucks too!

Rylie went through the same phase and still goes through it often. Smoothies were always good with her because she thinks its like ice cream and you can pretty much put everything in them. Plus you can also put it in thier cups and shethonks its milk. But alot of those days we just end up drinking extra milk and that is all we will let her have in her cup. Its tough cuase you want them to eat so bad but you just have to rememeber they will, keep trying.

Another thing with Rylie is I let her "help" me make the meal. She always wants to eat it then. Or we make our plates and make her food from them. She thinks she is getting a treat that way!

so tell me some good recipes for a smoothie. i really only make strawberry smothies but if there are other ones then i would love to know. of course lisser got me a smoothie book years ago, maybe i should look in there!

Yeah, the gas issue has been crazy. Seth made us carpool to Black Mountain today. We had a lovely day walking from the gym to my parents empty rental house for the afternoon and then to McDonalds later. It was nice but I don't think I would want to do it all of the time.

That is so exciting! I have to admit that Mac's are pretty cool. We were raised IBM but both of my sister's have converted. Who knows, maybe I will too one day. I just don't get them, though. I think it would take me awhile to learn. I bet you are an expert now.

I'm sure BellaRose's fruitatarian phase will end. Stuff like that never lasts too long.

niki you are so funny on all parts of that comment!
