A New Baby, a Walk and a Missing Gallbladder...

...Whew! What a day!!! Last Friday, I was off work so I decided I'd make my rounds visiting friends. First off though, on Thursday night, Jen and I had a great workout but when I went to bed, I could not turn off my brain. The last time I looked at the clock was 3AM and I finally drifted off to sleep. At 6am, Emma was whining to go out so I was up and at 'em. I started my day off early.

First stop-Christina's!!! I got to visit almost two-week old (1 day shy) Baby Matthew. He's so tiny and precious!!! Here's mom and son:
His brother Brutus wanted in the picture too. I seriously LOL every time I see this pic!
After I left Christina's, I headed over to Angie's. We took Nick on a walk around Francis Park which was two miles. It was a GORGEOUS day out and a great way to visit with a friend. Angie along with some other bloggers (Cece and Jen and me) are doing the Delta Gamma 5k in May. She'll rock it!
Then I headed back out to St. Charles County to visit my friend Stevie who just had her gallbladder out. We looked at wedding decorations and decided what the different speeds for the tealights meant you were either a partier or not. Here's Stevie minus her gallbladder:

After I left her place, I went to have our taxes done. I found out that IVF would count as a deduction-woohoo!!! We also counted our medical miles and I was shocked! I thought we lived fairly close to our clinic compared to other women but after I added it all up, Matt and I drove 868 miles to and from there!!! After I left there, I went grocery shopping, came home and made dinner then we headed to the nursery to load mulch. Once I got home, I had to figure out our IVF expenses and med miles and WHEW! Ladies, I.was.exhausted!!! I was in bed by 8pm but I loved every minute of my busy, busy day!
