Well, it has been a stressful weekend. Fischer was tested for lead poisoning at his 2 year visit, and it came back positive. So, we went to Children's Hospital yesterday and had a second blood test. I know in my heart that he will be fine, but as a mother I was a little crazy. It is hard when your child's health is at risk and there is nothing you can do but sit and wait for the results to come back. I thought about all of the children who have leukemia or some other childhood illness. I can't even imagine how those parents watch their children suffer day after day.

This morning at church, several people(including a doctor) reassured me that many of those lead screenings come back as false positives. So, until then pray that this is the case. I don't handle health problems very well. It makes me feel very out of control. It's something that I need to work on.

Anyway, here is a pic of Fischer. I told him to go to his bed and start reading his LeapFrog Pad and that I would be there ina minute. This is where I found him:

So, not only am I going to the Natalie Grant concert, I won a Meet and Greet with her before the concert! YEAH! When I told my mom, she said, "Man, you are a lucky person, you seem to win a lot of things."

It's the past three years I have won:

A $150 set of professional chef knives

A video IPOD(which at the time was worth $300 and I didn't really know what it was)

An $80 CD that has the entire Bible on it(like an audio book).

And now a meet and greet with Natalie Grant...the female vocalist of the year for two years now!

ANYWAY, here are some new pics of Fischer:

Random thoughts for today:

1) I have encounterd three sales people today...every one of them was rude, aloof and apathetic.
I guess customer service does not exist anymore.

2) Why is getting pregnant so difficult? I guess I will have to resort to drinking, smoking, drugs, and welfare...then I am assured a child or two.

3) Natalie Grant is having a FREE concert in Omaha next Thursday. I am SO excited! I am going to get there 2-3 hours early to make sure I get a seat!

4) When I arrived home tonight, my son was asleep on the hard, cold floor. What is his aversion to his new bed? Every morning at 4am something tells him to get out of his bed, turn on his light and come crawl in bed with us...grrr. I am fast forwarding to when he is 21....will it really matter that he woke me up every morning for months or possibly years? I will look back and wish he would still cuddle with me.
