Just another day in paradise

Wow, it's been an eventful 24 hours.  Shortly after the last post, I noticed the contractions were picking up again, so I called my OB.  Of course, he wanted me to go in to be monitored.  Thankfully, the contractions stopped again, and as luck would have it, they didn't catch a single one on the monitor.  So I got to go home after about 45 minutes.

Earlier today we got a call that my mother-in-law was in the hospital.  She's been having vertigo type symptoms for almost a year now and the doc wanted to make sure it wasn't anything more than that.  We'll know results of the tests tomorrow, hopefully.  She should also be coming home.

AND, during my afternoon nap, the doorbell rings.  I get up in a sleep induced haze, angry as a wet hen that people are so STUPID when there are so many SAHM mom's around with sleeping kids.  I promise you it never happens until they're sleeping.  I peep out the window and it's a man dressed in a button up and a slacks.  He's looking right at me when I open the blinds and smiles and waves.  I'm not about to open the door for strangers.  Only this particular one knows I'm home now.  I was ready if he rang that door bell again I was going to peep my head out and give him a piece of my mind (which these days I have little to spare).  I'm pretty sure he was a Jehovah's witness or something.  He walked away and Punky came walking out of her room.  I was soooo angry.

I've decided I'm putting a sign on the door that says:


I can get mad about trivial things, I'll admit but ringing the doorbell on a complete stranger's door just gives me a tick!  I guess I would just never go door knocking and make people uncomfortable like that.  I just feel there are many more opportunities to spread God's word through less uncomfortable means.  Maybe I'm wrong, but that's how I feel.

So just another day in paradise.  Hubby just pulled up, so I'll wrap this up and go catch my soaps since I missed them today.  Yeah, I live an adventurous, fun-filled life.

And if you think of it, please say a prayer for my mother-in-law.  I'm sure she's fine (the doc has already ruled out a brain tumor), but extra prayers never hurt.

Wow! What a day! The door bell gets Tyler every time too. I will keep your mother-in-law, who's name I won't type, in my prayers.

Here's to a better day today!

At least with vertigo, the symptoms go away after a while. My mom was diagnosed with this about 2 months ago and she is fine right now. It's a scary thing though! I'll say a prayer for her.
And I feel the same with with doorbells & napping children! And my dog starts barking too which does not help... Ugh!!

I love the idea of the you wake them, you take them sign on the door. Does that apply to noisy husbands too?

You asked about coupons on my site. I do get some from the paper but I also use www.coolsavings.com a lot. Just click the Printable Coupons tab at the top. Most of the coupons can be printed a couple of times. They are constantly changing them and adding new ones. I also do coupons off www.bettycrocker.com, there is a link at the top for coupons. I subscribe to www.moneysavingmom.com too and she does a lot of links to manufacturer websites when they have coupons available to print too.

I would totally use that door sign. Knock on wood, we've lived here a year and I've never had to answer the door to a solicitor or any one else of that type!

I hope your MIL is doing better. That's super scary.
