If it Ain't Broke.........

Please excuse my mess. Clearly my web designer is having issues that hopefully will be resolved soon!

I have laughed harder today then in I have in a long time.

This morning I spent a bit of time doing 4 phone interviews with people who responded to my add for a nanny. I am really excited. All of them sounded really nice but one stood out. She has over 10 years of experience and some of those years were as a caregiver for wheelchair bound people. She is also certified to do g-tube feeds. I am so excited to meet her. What where the chances that I would have come across someone with those kinds skills?

Shortly before I finished my last call, my friends little girl came to me with the iPad in hand. She asked me how to put the piece of plastic back on.... Crap. The corner of the Invisashield had been coming off so she had tried to "fix" it. It now had plastic bubbles all the way to the middle of the screen. Then her little sister  took it all the way off. No biggy, it has a life time warranty.

There were no other plans on the book so we decided that we would go get it fixed today. No one was touching the iPad until it was protected once again. I tried to call the store before we left because of the experience I had the last time I went down there. ( I wrote about that here) however their phone line was not working. so we all headed out to the mall anyways.

We loaded 3 strollers, and 4 kids into the car and then unlaoded when we arrived. It was lunch time for Makenzie si I started her feed before we walked in. We walked into the store and I pulled the iPad out. Before I could even get one word out the sales man told me they were all sold out of front covers for the iPad. Needless to say I was not happy and left my number for the store owner to call me back. I had them call a different store at a different mall across town and we found front covers.

We decided to go ahead and travel there with our whole brood but Makenzie was still eating so we had about an hour to kill before we could leave. It turned out really good. We had lunch, and did a bit of shopping. I got a really good deal on jeans for the boys and we headed to the car and across town.

Needless to say the iPad has a new sheild on it tonight. This seemingly simple task only took 6 hours but I am sure the kids will be happy they can still play with it and we had a really good time in the process!

Shortly after we got home it was time to put Makenzie to bed. I laid with her and she was so giddy. I sang and she laughed, When I went to put her down on her pillow she just kept laughing. She was kicking her little legs all over the place and squealing at the top of her lungs. This went on for over 30 mins. I laughed and laughed with her. It was an amazing time spent with Makenzie!

After she settled down a bit I kissed her goodnight and settled into my couch. While Erica and I were killing time at the mall I downloaded an app called Talking Tom onto my phone so we decided to try it out. I laughed so hard I cried. Tom hears everything you  say and repeats it back  in the funniest most obnoxious voice. We had downloaded it for Makenzie but I think I am going to have more fun with that one then she is! LOL

Laughter is truly the best medicine.

Believe... Prayer Works!
