I'll have to make this one quick because I should be cleaning and packing. I'm leaving on Monday!!! I'm so excited.

I've changed a lot of my ideas for my wedding this past week, but you'll have to watch the video to figure out what:

That video will be ready somewhere around June 2 at 6:00 pm PST and up to 30 days after.

Anyway, so far I've borrowed some suitcases, done some laundry, gotten my toes and nails done, gotten my eyebrows and lip waxed (OMG that one hurt like a b*tch), and bought some stuff. Now I just need to do more laundry, clean the house, and actually pack, and I'm sure that I'll have to go shopping for somethings that I may have forgotten. I also need to pay the rent before we leave.

Anyway, I need to get to that as it is getting late. Hope you get to watch the video. Last name is Fleek for those from my message board!

Time is going so fast... it seems like just yesterday I was thinking about leaving for Las Vegas in a MONTH... now its less than 2 WEEKS! I feel so very far behind, but there isn't much I can do about it right now.

I need to make sure that all of the bills are paid, along with the rent for June.
I need to make sure that my house is in good order for my wonderful house sitter Lisa. I need to pack. I need to make sure that there is some sort of food for Lisa in this house. I need to call the airplane people and have them move my seats so that we are actually sitting next to each other. I still need to work. I have to figure out how I'm going to exactly take my wedding dress on the plane with me. I have to figure out how I'm going to wear my hair. I have to figure out my makeup. I could probably make the list go on and on and on.

Good news is all of the announcements are done and sent out, and I don't have to worry about it anymore. I love making cards. I like to show my creativity, and I love to see the look on someones face when they find out that I made it myself. This time though, it felt very frustrating. I felt like I did not have a place to work on them, so I ended up putting it off for awhile.
Hopefully, in the near future, I will have a little spot in my own HOUSE.. yep I said it, we are thinking about moving and we have our eyes on somehting.. anyway my own spot for my craft things. That way I don't feel like there is no one for anything. This place is so small, and there isn't enough storage.

Anyway, AJ went to a super hero birthday party this weekend. He dressed up as Spawn. I made his costume in 12 hours, so its not the best looking, but Aaron practically insisted that he be Spawn.

This is my absolute favorite picture of AJ at the moment:

And here is the birthday boy, he was running up the playground ramp:

Poor Baby

I had to take AJ to the ER last night around 3:00 am. I had noticed around 11 pm that he felt very hot. A not so quick temp check turned out to be around 103F but we didn't get to finish it because he was flailing and screaming. I dose of tylenol and a little while later he felt cooler, but a temp check a little later still had him at 103F. My mom told me to give him a cool bath, but I didn't want to freak him out, so I gave him an almost warm bath, which brought his temp down to 100.5F but 5 min later he was 102F and we decided to take him to the ER.
At the ER they temped him at 104.2, and gave him tylenol and motrin. Turns out he has a bilateral ear infection. It's puss behind the eardrum in both ears. So, on top of the other stuff he has ear drops for pain, and antibiotics for the infection. So, about every 2 hours he's taking some kind of medicine... and he isn't happy about it. As long as his fever is gone tomorrow we can cut out the tylenol and motrin, but as of this point, while his fever is under control it still isn't gone. It lowers for a little while after his medicine but then goes up when it's time for more. Luckily, not as high as yesterday.
Today, he's been cranky... oh boy it sucks. He's normally such a happy little boy, and loves to play, but today it's been crying and whining all day. He's not eating, but the doctor says that ok. He's also not drinking, which is not ok. We're trying everything to get him to drink... applejuice, water, milk, chocolate milk, slurpie, ice cream... nothing worked, but just a little bit ago he did start drinking apple juice... not enough though. We'll see if he starts to drink more tomorrow morning. If not I'll take him to the evening pediatric people.

So, that's the update on my sick little one. I can't wait until he is feeling better!
