Do any of you know what that is? I still get emails from one of the Quality Knowledge leaders from MedQuist, the transcription company that I worked for several months ago. I just haven't taken the time to email her and have her remove me from her list. She usually sends out a "word for the day", trying to teach everyone new terminology. I enjoy getting those emails. Today's word for the day was agateophobia. It means "fear of insanity". I didn't even know what the word was, but I have it. I fear that I'm going insane. Most days I think I am already there.

We nearly slept our entire morning away. Emma came upstairs this morning to ask me if I could button her top she had on that buttons at the back of her neck. I said sure, then decided I better get up to see what time it was. My clock projects the time onto the ceiling, and when it's light enough, I can no longer see the time. It was 10 o'clock! Emma asked me where Gage was, and I said, "I don't know? Probably still in bed!" He was. He woke up soon after that. Typically if I sleep that long I don't feel the best and often will wake up with a headache, but I apparently needed that sleep, as did Gage and Emma!

I worked some more on Emma's room. I am finally done painting her bed. I think she'll need to sleep in the guest room one more night just to make sure the paint is completely dry. The other morning when I woke her up I noticed there was some blue marks on the wall, so I moved the pillow and noticed she drew all over the wall in the guest room. I wasn't very happy about that, but since it is wallpaper that I want removed anyway, I didn't blow my top. I asked her why she did that and she replied, "I didn't have any paper!" UGH! As I was trying to finish a few things up in her room, I repainted the roof and trim of her dollhouse bookshelf that her Grandpa Stephens built her. Gage and Emma had written all over the top of it with a yellow highlighter. My Mom says every kid does that at some point in their life. I think she's right, although I don't remember doing it myself. I'm sure I did though.

I'm not sure what we have on tap for the weekend. Last night when I blogged I thought that today was Saturday, so I'm sure we'll have a nice long weekend because I don't know what day is what. We will be soon heading to Iowa for the 4th of July and we are getting very anxious to see everyone. The kids have grown and changed since Christmas, so it's time they get back to see everyone, before they're ready to graduate! It will be quite different when we're home this time since my Dad is retired. I'm looking forward to the fact that he will be around the entire time we're there. We're also anxious to see that Santa beard. (Beware Dad, because Gage is determined to cut it off!)

Have a great weekend!

I saw a supernanny where the kids just colored all over all the walls. I could NOT believe that!
Jody thought it was Saturday yesterday too! Several times he said tomorrow after church...
When do you guys leave for Iowa? I know you are excited.
