Almost 10 on Tuesday

1. Our girl is on "vacation" at Grammy and PapPap's for the week. I miss her terribly. Maybe it's because of the whole surgery thing going down on Thursdays that's got me all sentimental. Now I can guarantee you that she isn't missing us. In fact when I talked to her was on her way to go visit her great grandma and ride her "cool chair" that goes up the stairs (a la the Gremlins).

2. So here's the deal for Thursday since a lot people have been asking. I check in at nuclear medicine at 7:30 where they will inject the area around my ear with some lovely radioactive dye. This is for the sentinel lymph node biopsy. Then I set around for a few hours and let the dye work its magic. Around 11am I get put under. The general surgeon will use a geiger counter type device to find the closest lymph node and surgically remove it and ship it off for testing. A plastic surgeon will come in a remove about 1 cm of tissue around my ear where the mole called home. Then hopefully I'm finished and can put all of this behind me :) If that lymph node comes back with cancer I am going to be pissed.

3. We have a little get-away planned for an after tax season/my birthday celebration. We are going to load up and head to Columbus and spend a night or two at an indoor water park called Ft. Rapids. Hopefully I can squeeze in dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and a stop at the outlets in Jeffersonville.

4. I went to a meeting this evening about signing up Little Bit for pre-k. I can't believe my baby is going to be four next week AND starting pre-k next year. After that is kindergarten! Lord help me.

5. I finally located the paint color I have in mind for Soph's room. Click here to check it out! This particular color is a Walmart paint. Has anyone bought paint at the Walmarts? I'm sure it's fine and probably cheaper!

6. So I signed back up for Netflix and I'm on a documentary kick. We watched Food Inc. the other night. GAG A MAGGOT. Actually, I think I might take my chance with some maggots. Up next is The Cove which just won an Oscar and Born into Brothels.

7. Ok gotta cut this short...Lost is coming on and it's a Ben episode. His are usually pretty darn good!

But here's one of my girl being silly.

Hey Kim,

Sorry you have to go through all that biopsy stuff. Hope everything comes back okay. Hang in there.

Warning on paint from the dad bought some last summer, and it did not go on smoothly AT ALL. He went back and bought a different kind...same problem. AND they wouldn't take the unopened cans back (even though he hadn't had any color added to them!).

Kenneth uses WalMart paint at our house but would NEVER recommend it to a customer. He generally prefers Lowes or Sherwin Williams. If it's outdoor painting, he will ONLY use severe weather from Lowes. He did say that the Dutch Boy you can buy at WalMart is pretty good. I used the WalMart brand on the kitchen and bathroom here and I thought it was fine. OH, he also suggests the Satin paint. He likes it best. I don't know the difference, but that's what he says!

Hope everything went well with the surgery. We are just going to miss you in Columbus. If all goes well, we are heading there Easter weekend.
