I'll just lay it out there. I'm scared. I'm terrified. I have "the fear." Tomorrow I have to wake up, get Mad ready for school, get the baby up and feed her and then I have to go get my wisdom teeth taken out. This may be my worst fear. Now, I should be specific here. I'm actually not super scared of the actual teeth pulling; it's the whole anesthesia thing that's getting to me. The what-if's have been haunting me: What if they use so much anesthesia that I have trouble breathing and can't wake up? What if they use too little and I wake up to them yanking a tooth from my head? What if these teeth actually made me wiser? etc. You know, ridiculous, waste of time thoughts. Also, I've never been "put to sleep" as I keep saying, to which my sister said "you are not a dog and your not going to die." Nice sentiment but because I've never been sedated like this, I am fearful. It's that whole unknown thing that's gotten to me. Everyone I tell this to reassures me (in their own special way). As Gabe put it, "I've never heard of anyone dying from getting their wisdom teeth out." So, that thought will carry me through the night into tomorrow then into the oral surgeons chair. If you believe in prayer, please pray for me not only during surgery (11:30am EST) but also for a fast recovery.... Is it okay to say that I want my mommy now?

I know there are people in the world who thrive on being busy. I am not one of those people. Sure, I like having things to look forward to (a trip somewhere, playing in a park, etc.) but I don't have a strong desire to fill my days to capacity. Which is why the last couple of weeks have been trying. This online class feels like it has taken over my life. I'm behind on emails, I have no idea what's going on on Desperate Housewives, and my desire to take photo's of every moment of my children's' lives is waning. Basically, I've been busy. So, here's to the fact that today I'm going to be a good kind of busy. The kind of busy that involves baking a cake with my 2 year old for my hubby. The kind that involves trying to take a great picture of the two munchkins to give as a present to said hubby. And, the kind of busy that means I have to get everything done in order to go out and celebrate with him. Here's to Gabe being 31 today and to me being busy in the best kind of way.

Just wanted to post and say "Happy Easter" to everyone. It's been busy around here for the last week or so; I started a class online (to renew my teaching license), my wedding anniversary, out late to celebrate said anniversary, Maddie's day at the Barn, and now Easter! Lot's going on. Here's a few pic's I wanted to share and also the link to see the California pictures from last month. Be forewarned that there are A LOT of pictures of the ocean (Gabe got carried away...but who can blame him). Today is such a celebration for us and we remember that "He is Risen!"
