Where to begin...

Thursday, Nov. 5

My sister came in town that weekend because she didn't have class on Friday! (ugh! Don't you remember how awesome that was when you had those days in college??) And so Wes and I took that opportunity to have Amy and my mom babysit while we went to see Michael Jackson's This Is It movie. INCREDIBLE! Have you seen it?? I know there is controversy that swirled all about that man, but the movie has nothing to do with that. It is just him, being truly in his element, and I don't know how you could walk out of that theatre not being completely impressed by him. LOVED it!

We picked up Eli, came home, put him to bed, and by this point it's like 9:00. I decided to check my work email and I had a new email from our campus secretary! She sent an email to the entire school that read something like, "The Allen Events Center has given our school some Reba McEntire tickets to thank us for the use of their facility and for us to preview the facility before graduation. First come first serve." I was like WHAT?! Reba McEntire??? Now friends I don't know how you feel about Reba, but I love love love her and have from the time I first heard her years ago. I asked for 4 tickets and got them! YES!

Friday, Nov. 6


So Friday night Wes, Jeff, Amy, and I all met in Allen to go eat and go to her fantastic concert. We walk in and our seats were awesome! We were on the floor, in the center, and could clearly see her and all of her greatness! ha! (Thank you Mom for watching Eli again that night!)

The majority of the crowd was probably in the upper half of their life which made it such a chill and relaxed concert. Reba sang some of her new stuff and plenty of her old songs that made her. I don't think it lasted that long, but everyone there was so excited and the four of us were dying that we were actually there!

She looks exactly like she does on TV in real life. Completely cute and tiny and perfect looking skin, and her voice is flawless.

And at the end of the night, she walks off stage, hasn't played Fancy yet and so we all knew it would be her encore. Everyone is screaming and getting excited and then Reba rises up from the back of the stage in that red dress and everyone went crazy! hahaha... y'all. It was SO fun.

Saturday, Nov. 7 and Sunday, Nov. 8

Not too much happened over the weekend. Wes was busy playing guitar and I was feeling so sick with a cold or something so I laid low.

Monday, Nov. 9

Monday was a really busy day. As soon as I got home from work and got to eat lunch with Wes and Eli, I had to drive to Dallas for my doctor's appointment, you know the one where I got "checked." Nothing crazy to report. Everything was looking good. Judah's heartbeat was good, his movement seemed great, and my doctor thinks he was head down but kind of off to the side. Surprise surprise... I'm feeling more and more relaxed that I just went ahead and booked that c-section.

Then Wes had to leave as soon as I got back for the afternoon. So I took a really long nap while Eli was sleeping and then when we both got up it was time for supper! Jourdan was coming over for dinner! I wasn't feeling that great, but she is so sweet and made the drive all the way out here instead of meeting somewhere, so it turned out to be so fun, as always... We love us some Jourdan!

Wednesday, Nov. 10


What is there to say about this day really. Wes was working so I dropped Eli off at his babysitter's house (which he LOVES by the way) and off to work I went. I picked him up as usual, brought him home as usual, and fed him some lunch... as usual.

We played for awhile and then it was time to go "night night" which means climb up on our bed, get in your sleep clothes, and read books before nap time. He was acting tired, everything was normal, and after "night night" I put him in his bed and I went to lay down in mine.

My child never went to sleep! Two hours later (almost) he is still just playing around in his bed, talking, laughing, just whatever. I finally just go get him out and he thinks that is the best thing ever and is laughing just running all around the house. Please remember that I am feeling horrible still and really really wanted to take that nap that obviously was never going to happen.

All I remember is that I was laying on the couch watching him literally spin in circles laughing when he tells me that he is going to go get some chips. Great, go get 'em kid. He comes back in with a full bag of chips that we had opened the day before but never ate. He's just bouncing a long carrying the bag and I notice that he's carrying it upside down. No chips are falling. I did an excellent job of rolling up the chip bag, but I'm starting to panic so I get up as fast as I could (ha...) and right when I reach for the bag it opens and the entire bag of little tortilla chips spill ALL over my living room floor.


Some of you might be thinking (if you've made it this far... haha...) "aw man! That stinks! Well pick them up lady!" I on the other hand lost it. I'm sure it was the tiredness, the sickness, the end of pregnancy hormones, the fact that I am huge and can barely bend over to reach anything, the Wes isn't home, the Eli didn't take a nap part of me that kicked in but I started SOBBING. And I'm not talking just that constant flow of pretty tears, I'm talking hysterically crying.

I scared Eli half to death probably because he got teary eyed and started saying "sawyee sawyee" and that made me cry even more because I wasn't mad at him obviously, and so I just hugged him and had him help me pick up some of the chips and sent him playing. I, on the other hand, just sat in the floor and cried.... over spilled chips! I was a HUGE mess.

Meredith called, could tell immediately something was wrong, I started telling her and just cried the entire time. Then Wes called, same story, asked if he should come home, told him no. Then my mom called, and was on her way home and so she just decided to come over.

Retelling this story makes me sound crazy. And I guess I was that day. But I just could not control myself! haha... Jeff said it would make for an awesome youtube video if that scene had been recorded. I would have been famous! haha...

But, the chips are cleaned up (thanks to Ebony) and I got my haircut that night with Meredith, so I was much better by the end of the night. sheesh...

...more to come about the rest of the week later...

Oh, Amanda! I'm so sorry about all the tears. Sometimes it's small things that happen to start the tears and once they DO start, look out! ;o) I totally understand. How sweet that Eli was trying to comfort his mommy. love it!

Jennifer said...

Awww! I'm so sorry you were having a bad day. Just think, the pregnancy hormones will be over soon and you will have another perfect little boy to hold!

Oh, you have no clue how many moments of "crying over chips" I have had in my short life! I am NOT a good tired wife OR MOM. I hear ya sister! You're normal, not crazy. Or we're both crazy...hmmm. I'm totally jealous of the Reba concert! I LOVE Reba! I'm trying to figure out when she and George Strait come near us so I can see them! Praying for you in these last few weeks!

I just love stories that make me feel normal. :) I am by no means emotional, but when it starts lady, just hold on, haha! The last time I can remember the straw the broke the emotional dam (if you will) I had to pull over because I couldn't see enough to drive and Ansley was just bawling in the back seat with me because I was crying. :) I finally just turned around and went home and cried some more. haha! I SO had every Reba tape as a child too btw.

Oh! Poor Amanda. I have meltdowns like that occasionally, when everything just seems like too much. I'm sure you'll feel much better when you're not pregnant anymore...Post pics of your new haircut!

You are not crazy! Just normal! Hope you all had a great TG!
