There hasn't been an update because two kids with RSV will keep you extremely busy. They go back to the doctor on Friday and I hope that this will have cleared up!

She is sleeping!!!

It is 11:22 pm and she has been asleep since 6!!! Its bliss! I am afraid to lay down though because I know as soon as I do she will be awake. I will be uploading a video of Troy dancing around his Nanny's living room. As soon as we can get it off her camcorder I will put it on here. Troy went to his best friend Katie's birthday party on Saturday and had a blast. He started school today and had 5 pages of homework when he got home. It took us a half hour to complete. He said he had fun so I am happy about that.

Electricity - NOT!!!

So we spent the night at the inlaws house because we had no electricity at the apartment. When we were getting ready to move to Huntsville we had found an apartment and put the application in and where told no problems we would have an apartment when we got there. They told me when we signed our paperwork they would send a form to the electric provider and the electric would be put in our name and that would be that. Well that complex ended up not having any apartments available so they moved us to another complex that is owned by the same company. Well we moved in and never gave the electric a second thought. Well yesterday about 10 am the electric was cut off. I went to the office and they told me we don't deal with the electric company!! I told them what the other complex told me and they verified that information (to keep us from having a fine) and told me they don't know why we weren't told that we needed to get the electric in our name since we were at a different complex. So I called the electric and they didn't want to cut it on until Tuesday!! I convinced them to do it ASAP and they cut it back on yesterday afternoon. The only problem is that the office had cut it off at the main breaker. We called this morning and the maintenance man is driving in to cut it back on for us! At least we got our laundry done!

Its Cold

So the low tonight is supposed to be 35 degrees! That would not be so bad except that I hate wearing tennis shoes. James gets on to me because I will still wear my flip flops in the snow. I have a couple pair of leg warmers coming in the mail for Madyson and I hope they get here today or tomorrow so she can wear the pink camo ones to church on Sunday. This is the ebay store I bought them from. She has a ton of really cute leg warmers on there. It makes me wish I had more money in my paypal account so I could get more! Well I have got to crank up the heater and put some socks on.

Headache City

Well yesterday was interesting. It was our first actual rough day with Madyson. She woke up at 8:30 am and went to bed at 8:30 pm and only slept for 2 hours in between. Of course she was exhausted so we had a screaming baby on our hands. I so need to invest in more of the night time wash and I will be getting some of the night time lotion because after a bath, massage and nursing session she was out and asleep for nearly 7 hours.

I had another job interview yesterday, one today and have one scheduled for in the morning. You would think one of these would come through soon! I really would like the one I interviewed for today because it would put me working down the street from Troy's new school. He starts school December 1st and I am really excited for him. He loved school back in Arlington and I think he will really enjoy full day preschool here.

Here Goes Nothing

So since everyone in our family is so spread apart I have decided to keep family up to date with this little blog! As of today Troy is 3 and Madyson is just a little of 2 months old. She loves sleeping in her swing and he is finally potty trained!! I will be including pictures of the kids, schedule of special events, height and weight updates for Madyson, Christmas lists for both of them and hopefully at some point I will be able to include videos! We are just about settled in our new apartment here in Huntsville just in time for the holidays. I can't wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving when Troy and I will be putting up the Christmas tree together. Last year he insisted on having the lights on from the time he got up until he went to bed! We will see what this year has in stow. We have found a great church here and Troy really seems to be enjoying it. Madyson is the only baby in the church. They were wonderful about cleaning up the nursery and putting new bedding in the crib for her. She does really well sitting through service though. She is smiling and laughing more and more. I just wish she would smile long enough for me to get a picture!!
