True Love: The feeling when you first look in your child's eyes, the tiny little hand gripping your finger, and you can't imagine your life without him or her.

Night Out

Matt & I got one of our somewhat rare nights out last night with some of our best friends & family. We went to a local bar (read "hole in the wall, redneck bar") where Matt's cousin Wade likes to sing occasionally. The video is of Matt dancing (which he *never* does) with Wade's sister Jennifer.

We had a really good time. We left Xandra home with our best friends' daughter babysitting. I had debated all day long whether we would really be able to go out because Xandra had been up almost the entire night before. She's got a lot of sinus drainage, which has led to a nasty cough. I took her to her FCC play group earlier in the morning, and ended up leaving pretty quickly because she was just not feeling well. We decided to go ahead & go out because toward the end of the afternoon she was playing like normal. I suppose we probably made the wrong decision, though I'm not sure. It's so hard to tell if she's really, truly sick or if she's being mellow-dramatic, as she tends to be.

At any rate, we're paying a bit today for having gone out last night. Xandra went to bed @ 1:00 am (yes, that late)and got up at 4 am. She had one heck of a fit, just screaming about how much she loved me & daddy (???). I was starting to lose my temper because it just didn't make sense what was happening with her, until I touched her. She had a fever. I figure she was just so tired & feeling so crummy, she kind of lost it a bit. We got some motrine in her, and she settled down almost instantly.

Xandra is already sick, and I'm getting there. I realize the weather isn't interesting to most people, but it's just been insane here. This past Friday (only 2 days ago!), I wore a tee-shirt to school. It was almost 70 degrees! Today, it sleeted & snowed. What the heck?? I really do not like Ohio. I've been saying it for as long as I can remember... I can't wait to get the opportunity to get the heck out of here!!!
