*UGH!*...Call me weak-ass! I don't know at what point I went from being buzzed to flat-out-drunk, but I woke up this morning at 5am with an incredible urge to puke. I drank a bottle of water that Aric left next to my bed and forced myself to go back to sleep. I woke up periodically feeling crummy. By the time I woke up at 11am, I was feeling heavy-headed but much better. Today was really uneventful...or at least for me. Aric got up, changed and dressed the baby, took her downstairs for a feeding so I could lay in bed a little longer. From upstairs, I could hear her cough getting worse. I dragged myself out of bed and jumped in the shower. I could smell the alcohol permeating through my pores. =P The shower made a world of difference. After joining Aric and Ashlyn downstairs, we gave Ashlyn some cough syrup and played with her. The snot running from her nose is really thick. When she sneezed, a bubble appeared at the base of her nostril. It was so funny! We laughed and that made her laugh, causing more bubbles to appear. Then she smeared it across her face. *eeew!* The day was pretty lazy. I lounged on the couch and watched TV with Ashlyn. Wey came over, and the guys took off to Home D to buy some more stuff for the house...then they moved some furniture upstairs from the home office. I talked to Sis on the phone for a while... found out that Chris and Amanda got their driver's permit! I can't believe how fast my nieces are growing! *yikes!* Pedestrians beware! HAHAHAHA! Then I called my parents and talked to them for a while. Since returning from our trip, I've been so busy with visitors, the house, and such that my phone calls home have diminished to a call a week. My mom seemed a bit peeved until I caught her up to date, then she sounded really impressed and excited. She even offered to come visit. YAY!

The ant problem wasn't as bad as yesterday, but we still have a lot of stray ants scouting around. I vacuumed the living room and kitchen, and have been diligent in wiping up every ant on the countertops. I know the weather is a big factor to our infestation. I just hate ants. I get itchy everytime I see them. *sigh*

Aric and I made dinner, while Wey played with the baby, and we ate in front of the TV. We popped in "The Lord of the Rings" DVD. The movie was long, but filled with awesome visuals. I kept wondering how they made Frodo and the other Hobbits look so small. Of course the ending makes me anticipate the next installment. Wey left midway through the movie, and Ann and Phil came over to pick up some CDs. After the baby went down for bed, Aric worked on clearing out his home office, preparing it for laminate flooring. He cleared that room in a quickness.

What a lazy day. I feel drained. G'nite! Hope y'all had a fun weekend! =D
