Timothy is a clever boy!

I went to Timothy's Christmas play tonight. He was required to be in the play and to have lines. He had 2 lines and he did them very well. He cleverly volunteered to help the teacher which got him out of all the singing and dancing. He's a sly one.

Here are pictures and a video of his second line. Don't blink, you'll miss it.

Walking in.

1st line.

2nd line...remember, don't blink

Nice $20

Woohoo!! A big box of nerds! (for the nerd)

Hello everybody...

Just wanted to check in and let everyone know I'm doing fine. I've used crazy glue 4 times since my "episode" and all my fingers and toes still operate independently. So I've grown in the crazy glue area of my life. Just thought you all'd want to know that.

How about some Simmons or Goehrings come to visit me?

I got myself in a predicament all right


Well, I crazy glued my fingers together. Not the tips either... 2 fingers from the knuckles all the way to the tip...stuck, stuck, stuck.

It took a long, long time to get free, but really warm water, dawn dish soap, nail polish remover, the pointy thing on nail clippers, a lot of patience and laughing did the trick.

Freedom!!

I may never use crazy glue again. Now I get to spend the rest of the night picking the glue off. At least I can type now. :)

Momma's home!

They finally set Heidi free today. She's so happy to be home. Alexis didn't have any trouble remembering how to nurse. In fact, she got all excited, kicking about. It feels a little funny to me right now. I'm not sure when to step in and help or when to let them be. I find myself more in tuned to Alexis and her needs. I am sooo tired though.

Now to get Heidi healed up and all better.

5th night, believe it or not...

Well, Heidi's blood test today gave the news that she has pancreatiits and they're keeping her another day. So, we spent another day with Alexis and are going into our 5th night. I feel so bad for Heidi, stuck in that hospital room with no food and no baby. Hopefully she gets released in the morning and this nightmare can end for her. Tomorrow is her birthday, so coming home would really be great for her.

3rd night went well and going into 4th

Heidi is still in the hospital. Poor thing. She had another procedure today that got the last of the gallstones. She looked so much better tonight, more like her old self. She's got good color now. She should be coming home tomorrow. So, just one more night with the baby by myself. It'll be nice to have Josh and Heidi back home. It'll be a week or so before Heidi can pick up Alexis, so even though she can hold her if we give her to her, she'll need a lot of help.

Survived 2nd night

Alexis and I survived our second night together. I really should be showering instead of blogging right now. We went and visited Heidi last night. Mom and daughter were happy to see each other.

It's been good bonding with Alexis. I've kind of kept my distance even though they live with us. I've not wanted Heidi to feel like I was going to take over her baby when they moved in here. So this time has been nice. But I think we're ready for mommy to come home now.

Off to try and sneak in that shower before Alexis wakes up again. I might add a picture of the two of them at the hospital, but we'll see how they came out and if there are any Heidi would approve of. :)

Emergency Surgery, sort of...


Well, emergency in that her surgery won't wait till the scheduled date of the 24th, but not emergency like rush her in immediately. Heidi's gallstones are on the move and one has moved to a duct, she's jaundiced and itchy which indicates she's loaded with toxins or something like that. Josh took her to the emergency room last night and they kept her. She will be having surgery today.

So I have Alexis, who is 4 months old now. We had a good night together...me, her, some formula and my rocking chair. So, here we go... another exciting episode in the Hernandezclan household.

Grandparent's Day

Friday, I was honored to go to school with Katie Ann for Grandparent's Day. She had interviewed me days before and did an oral report.

Katie Ann wore my high school cheerleading sweater to school and wore her hair in two ponytails just like I used to wear. Many kids brought cookies and goodies to share.

After all the presentations, we went to lunch. We each brought our own lunches. Katie Ann showed her hula hooping skills with six, yes, six hula hoops at once. I tried just one, but could only do it for a few seconds.

After lunch we went to chapel for a program put on my Mr. Cushings, students and a guest speaker.

It was a fun, memorable day. I look forward to next year!

Easy access to posting

Julee & Jess set up a bookmark on my browser so I can post easier. If you notice, there's no bar on my blog to get to my dashboard or anything. Posting used a lot of my limited brain power to remember where to go to blog. Now it's easier.

Post to begin posting

Okay, I would blog more if there was a button on my blog that said post new blog. Having to go to blogger.com separately and then also remember which email I signed up under has been a bit of a roadblock into my blogging. That's one excuse anyway. :)

This is a "I've got to post on my blog post." Hopefully it will get me going again.

Sad news

Our special friend Peggy Evans passed away this morning after suffering a heart attack. Our hearts are breaking and we will miss her dearly. Please join with me in lifting up Maury and their family during this sad time. Julee's sweet blog post.

Learn vocabulary and fight world hunger

I just blogged about this at my homeschool site and thought my family and friends might like to participate too. So hop on over and learn all about it. Put some of that game playing time to good use.

I will be cross posting things from my About.com Homeschooling site that I think might be of interest to anyone who happens to find me here.

Job hunting

Believe it or not, the job that Jesse interviewed for contacted him the other day. It is still open and they are still considering him. This interview was a long time ago. I can't believe it's still open. Well they are busier than ever and really need to fill the job...so what's the hold up?

Well anyway, it gave me a ray of hope again. If anybody reads this post, feel free to join me in praying that Jesse gets this job. It would do me a world of good in many, many ways.

Send a car service to pick me up??

I had a very exciting, but equally scary email in my inbox on Memorial Day morning. Fox & Friends from the Fox News Channel in New York wanted to send a car service to pick me up and take me to their satellite studio for an interview on the Subway story I reported on. The time zone is all that saved me. It would have been a great experience and I would have done it, but I would have been soooo nervous.

Visit with grandma

We're having a nice visit with Grandma this week. We went out to lunch and to Target today. Jessica and Eric and Alissa came over for dinner tonight. I made Really Garlicky Salmon. We're going to go have lunch with Jessica tomorrow and help her hang pictures and decorate her new condo.

Welcome to my world

This is my very first blog post. I will do another one in a little while with pictures and everything, but I wanted to make a post now just because. Katie Ann is helping me. She explained that I don't have to sign my name because it will always say "Grandma Bev's Place" and everyone will know it's me.
