Tonight is the first night I completely enjoyed Elliott. That song Home I love and I thought he did a good job with it. Not everyone thinks so apparently, but I really liked it. And I’m not alone because he ended up in the #2 spot on dialidol stats tonight. My guess was and is Paris is goin’ home tomorrow night. I was a little disappointed with Chris tonight. I think his voice hurt him and took away from the song unfortunately. I need to rewatch the first part of the show because I missed it since I was a little late from dinner. Which by the way went very well. I think I sort of talked her head off. I realized halfway through the dinner I was talking. A lot. And I could have talked for like 4 more hours. No lie. I really need some girl talk! Put it this way, until the grocery store this afternoon and dinner tonight with her, I haven’t been anywhere outside of the house or van since Sunday morning for church and lunch. Yeah. That’s the bad part about working from home. You don’t get out much. Anyway, so dinner went really well. We talked I think 99% about our upcoming reunion. I think we’re both nervous and worried we will revert to our shy selves (is that a word?) and not really know how to act around everyone. I don’t know. I was fine at the reunion meeting the other night so I’m not quite as nervous.
I have a orthodontist appt in the morning. Yeah, haven’t said that for about, oh, 10 years. My teeth have really moved since getting my braces off in 1996. Which by the way did not come off before senior pictures which really did and does make me mad. Because guess why? They are going to make us wear nametags with our senior yearbook picture on them. So yeah, I knew there was a reason I HAD to have them off! At least they were the clear kind and not the metal kind! ANYWAY, I feel like I’m on speed or something like I just need to rattle. I NEED SOME GIRL TALK! So I’m taking my retainers tomorrow–yes I still have them and no they don’t fit anymore–and seeing if they can use them. I really would like to get a permanent retainer on the inside of my bottom teeth so I don’t have to worry about it. I just don’t really want to go through all that pain again. The last thing I want him to say is I need braces again. Won’t do that again! I hear they have gotten pretty good at that stuff though. I think people wear them for like 9 months now or something.
So my bible study is going really good. I was literally in tears the other night during my homework session it was hitting home so well. I really recommend it to any female. It is a great study and I think would be really good with a small group of women that really trusted one another. I really hope I will take something from it.

Project at work is back on track. Or at least half of it. At least I have something to do for now.
I think Lexi is addicted to tv. I determined this morning I wasn’t going to let her watch so much and she was literally banging on the tv screen for me to cut it on. Yesterday she brought me the remote in the bathroom WHILE I was USING the bathroom for me to turn the tv on. She was cranky today which is probably a result of all this. Hopefully I can resolve to cut out more tv.
Emma has been so sweet lately. She’s acting so grown up. Tonight I was laying in bed with her while I was putting her to sleep and she says in her cute little voice and lisp, Actually…actually, I have a question for you. I’m trying to think what she asked me but I can’t remember. She said two things. Something and if I could pray for angels. Almost every night since the first night we did that Emma has asked me to pray for angels. I ask for them to help her get to sleep, keep her warm, keep her in bed, keep her safe and help her not to be scared. Yes, I know some of those things are sort of random to be asking of angels specifically but basically those are the things I want from her and she has not much control over while she is asleep so I was hoping some angels could help a tired mommy out. But if I miss any of those things on the list, she reminds me. Tonight I said amen and she says you forgot to say help me to get to sleep. So I have to do a “prayer addendum” and ask for that. LOL.
