Party Was A Hit!

It's 4:50 a.m. and I can't sleep again tonight...insomnia...which I've had now for the past week. I've even taken Ambien CR to get to sleep and it did nothing...not even a sleeping pill is working...Ugh!! I think because I just have so much on my mind. I figured since I am up I might as well take advantage of the quiet time and blog a bit. The weather here has been so dreary for the last few days. Nothing but heavy rain and thunder. I'm hoping that will clear up.

The 6th Birthday party for Kaylee went very well. It was a nice day with family and she got lots of things that she really wanted. Thank you also for all your suggestions on things to make. I made a Jello mold that Kathleen suggested. It was pretty easy. I also did a dip that she suggested as well made with cream cheese and marshmallow fluff and a hint of red food coloring. They were both a hit with everyone. It's hard sometimes you always make the same things and it gets boring so trying something new was nice. Here are a couple of pictures of how they turned out. Did it look like I did it right Kathleen? They tasted good so that is the important part. I just had a little trouble getting the Jello mold out of the pan to the plate. I think I heated it up too much but I just popped it back in the freezer.

My mouth is feeling much better. I go back to the dentist next week for a porcelain crown on the tooth that had the root canal.

Things are still the same with my sister. I am still feeling really hurt and angry but I am just trying to get on with my life and try and put it past me for now. I know deep down what the real truth is and that is what really matters. It is been so hard this month--it's been nothing but up and down emotionally...though I got some great advice from Kathleen...."I can not change my sister, I can only change how I react to her". It is so true. I will just keep that in the back of my head and refuse to let her get me upset anymore. I think I let years worth of her upsetting me just pile up and then when this happened it was the straw that broke the camels back so to say. I have just decided that I will not do this anymore. I do not deserve to be talked to the way she talked to me or about my family and home. David is still very hurt especially with some things that just recently trainspired...just to long to go into.... but I am hoping with school starting he will be able to concentrate on other things.

Today was quiet mostly...the day after a pary is always cleaning up and relaxing for me. I even slept in a bit and my niece slept over as well and hung out with David all day. My mom stopped by and took David and my niece out to the pet store and David got a catfish for his tropical tank. He was getting some alge so the catfish should help clean that up.

Does anyone watch "Prison Break"? I always wanted to get into that show but never did and then when I tried watching it I was lost in the middle of the season so I just downloaded all of season 1 to my IPod so I can watch it. I know season two just started also so I have to catch up quick and I will DVR this season.

Well I am going to try and get back to sleep.
