Ten Things Thursday

A wee bit late, I know....
1.  Yep, I'm still itching over here.  I found some stuff called Calagel at the pharmacy and that is helping some, but not gone completely.  The itchy areas don't seem to be as raised as they were and definitley not as red, so I know it's working, but it's taking its sweet ass time.  Grr!!

2.  For the most part, all of the incisions look good and seem to be healing well.  The one inside my belly button, however, is still oozy.  Is this some sort of drain site that they didn't tell me about?  Should I be worried?

3.  Kids go to their dad's tonight after school and we won't see them until Monday, well we'll see Kylie on Sunday but I'll get to that in a minute.  I hate when they are gone all weekend.  I'm sure you'll see this in my TTT every other Thursday from now until they are gone to college. :(

4.  The pool is almost finished.  They cam yesterday and laid out the forms for the decking around the pool and hopefully will pour the concrete tomorrow.  Then, starting Monday, they'll clean up the backyard and the walls of the pool and get it ready for plaster.  Once the plaster is dried/cured, whatever it has to do, JUST ADD WATER!  And acid.  Since the plaster color we chose is almost black, they have to add muriatic (sp?) acid to the pool water and let it eat away at the plaster for 4-5 days to reveal the black aggregate.  

5.  The dogs are about to go nuts.  Poor babies have been kenneled inside during the pool construction process and while we are at work.  By the time we get home at night they are ready to bust loose!  

6.  Our Halloween party is next Friday night and we haven't even decided on costumes yet.  This is no bueno.  We still have cleaning and decorating and shopping to do besides.  Not to mention next week I will be getting ready for the Cowboys game on Sunday and we will be closing up shop at the State Fair.  Fun stuff, I tell ya.  We have nothing going on for 2 weeks, then everything happens the next week.  

7.  So we have been cordially invited to a ball!  I like to say that.  It sounds so...Royal!  It really is a ball, since it's called the Dallas Margarita Ball, but it's really a fun name for a black-tie charity event.  Heck, for me I just like the excuse to get all dressed up, fancy-like you know.  I ordered my dress online and I ordered it a little big.  I plan on taking it to have it altered the week before the ball.  I'm hoping to make it to Onederland before the ball.  That's a little over 2 weeks and 14 lbs to go to get there.  I'm not gonna push it since I'm still recovering, but it sure would be nice!  I'll post pics of my fancy ball gown later.

8.  Eating some oatmeal today, wahoo!!  It's weird, I feel really  hungry, tummy is growling and the whole nine, then I get something to eat and after two or three bites, I'm done.  I'm not complaining, it's just a weird feeling.

9.  I love my hubby.  He is the most wonderful man I know.  He is stressed this week and I want to make it all better, but I can't.  I'm trying to back into doing the stuff around the house that I usually do, to help out, but it's slow going.  All I can do is hug him and love him.

10.  Taking my sweet girl to see the Biebs on Sunday.  What have I gotten myself into?

  1. What a nice mom you are to take her to see the Bieber! I hope you guys have a great time!

    Also jealous of the BALL! I can't wait until my husband's holiday party so I can dress up. I plan on pretending I've never met any of them before since I'll be 70+ lbs lighter. ;)
