Had my scope and dilation on my esophagus yesterday. Afterwards, Harry and I went to Subway and I ate a 6" sub with NO trips to the restroom. Yay! It was still a little difficult to eat, and since then some things have gotten stuck, but I can definately tell a difference! Still probably looking at more surgery, but I'll be able to nourish my baby 'til then! So there's my big fat praise report.
Have company this weekend. Harry's aunt, uncle, and cousin are coming. Guess what I've been doing this week? Uhh, yeah - cleaning. And organizing. And I even cut the dog's hair - it is SOOO funny! Putting it nicely, I did a terrible job. We still have to take the clippers to him, though.
Went through Tiffany's "old clothes". Do you KNOW how many 0-3 month outfits I had?? Enough to put a lot of 29 and another of 30 on eBay this Sunday. And I still kept a ton! ugh, where am I supposed to store this stuff? Maybe a fairy will come while I sleep some night and organize it all for me. :) Anyone have any pulls there? Notice my lack of nouns today?
We are trying to get a bill passed (House File 2658) that will automatically award joint physical placement (each parent has child = time) unless there is burden of proof why it's not in the child's best interest. So today I'm typing up a pamphlet to pass out to the legislators and all those special political people that persuades them to vote YES! Did you know I'm a lobbyist? Is that cool, or what? It's not like picketing. We are actually in the capitol building and call the representatives out one by one - by filling out a piece of paper saying who we are and who we'd like to talk to. Then the door person gives it to the rep, and they come out and talk to us - we tell them about the bill, and they can ask questions, and then we move on to the next rep. Now we'll have a little packet to give them when they come out to talk with us.

Might take 2 pages.
Pull quotes in there? Not sure. Hope the draft will be done by tomorrow, so we can get them printed and ready by Tuesday for sure. Better get on it....I think I need some coffee....still feeling a little groggy....I should be sitting at the table instead of reclining in bed....
