Emma's hair is finally long enough to put it in ponytails & pigtails! I love pigtails - I think they are so cute!! I sent her to the babysitter yesterday in pigtails, but they didn't last too long. After playing a while either Emma or another little one pulled them out! She did really well when I put them in the first time, though and didn't bother them.

Rough Day

Yesterday was my Friday off. I had a doctor's appointment at 10:00 and my parents planned to come visit for the day and watch Emma in the waiting room when I went in to see the doctor (just my yearly checkup). I took Emma with me b/c I wanted her to say hi to my doctor - my doctor didn't get to deliver Emma b/c she had her twins two days before Emma was born two doors down from our room in the hospital!!

Anyway...I guess it was a good thing my parents had already planned to come visit b/c I really ended up needing their help. About 4am yesterday morning I woke up so sick. Starting about that time I would wake up, get sick, sleep for about 40 minutes, wake up and get sick again. That happened until around 7 or so. Luckily my parents got here right about the time Emma was waking up b/c it was hard enough for me to hold my own head up, much less be up chasing Emma around. By 9:30 I thought it was mostly over and that was about the time I had to leave for the doctor. I sipped on sprite and daddy drove (thankfully).

I felt okay for a while, but after we came back home I finally decided to put something in my stomach besides pepto and sprite. So, I ate a few crackers and drank some broth - yeah, that didn't work either b/c I lost all that, too. Michael had checked on me from work and turned out he was feeling about the same as me. I don't think he was getting sick like I was, though. By the time he made it home from work I was at least able to keep everything down. I was still very nauseous, though.

My parents left a little while after Michael got home and I drank a bit more sprite and pepto and actually started to feel human again, which was good b/c we were supposed to go to a company function for Michael's work last night. We left a little after five (I still took sprite with me just in case) and I was mostly alright the rest of the evening. The event was a crawfish boil and as much as I love them I just couldn't stomach anything. I ate one I think and a couple of shrimp, but mostly just drank sprite and ate a few salty chips. Emma had a great time, though. She even ate some of the shrimp and loved it! I was scared it would be too hot, but she is my daughter so I guess it was okay for her! There were a lot of other kids there and she had fun watching and playing with them. They had a crawfish race for the kids and prizes and pinatas. She had her first ring pop, too!! It got all over her! Ha ha!

After a couple hours, even though I didn't get sick anymore, I told Michael I really needed to lie down and since he really wasn't feeling that great all day either, we decided to head home. Emma was so tired, but would give in to sleep on the way home. Too pumped up, I guess!! After we got home, though she snuggled with me on the couch a while, then ran and played, then came back and snuggled some more, then played some more. After a while, when I was ready to go to sleep myself, I put her to bed and out she went! She is still asleep now. Catching up after all that playng yesterday. I woke up early this morning unfortunately, though and as tired as I am, I just could not go back to sleep so I decided to just get up instead of tossing and turning and keeping Michael up.

Today is going to be just as busy for Emma, so I know she'll sleep good tonight, too. Today we're going to MIchael's brohter's house. We're having a crawfish boil out there. So far this morning I feel fine - thank goodness b/c I really want to eat some crawfish today since I missed out yesterday! Christopher and Amanda have a big back yard, too so Emma has a blast running around all over the place! I'll have some pics to publish later I'm sure!

24 Days

Only 24 more days till I get my MBA!!! My cap, gown, tassle, and HOOD came last night!! I had to prance around in it a while, though I should have taken a picture wearing it! I'll save that for the big day I guess!

Kubeczka Update

I haven't done a good update on in a while. Things have just been too busy!!

Emma is keeping me and Michael running more than ever these days! She is now 16 months old - actually 16 and a half now! I can't believe how big she is getting!! Time is going too fast. She is jabbering on like crazy and running all over the place. She loves to be outside and loves to slide on her playground toys in the backyard, too! It's amazing to watch her learn to do something new, which seems to happen almost daily!

Michael is doing well...he is having a hard time right now, though b/c he just lost one of his pups and the other one isn't too far behind. They were both his buddies - he has had them for a long time. Other than that, though he is doing well. Working hard and them coming home and working more in our yard and garden. This year he has beautiful cabbage and romaine lettuce growing like crazy in his garden and the tomatoes aren't too far behind them!

As for me, school is getting close to the end - Yes, I'll have my MBA in less than a month now, which means the work load is ramping up a bit. Trying to finish my paper and work on presentations for another class, too. I just ordered my cap, tassel, and masters gown & hood today! I should have it in a couple days so that will be plenty of time to make sure everything fits right in case I have to exchange something. And work is going well, too. I am still loving the new department that I am in at work and am learning all the time. Quarter close is upon us now and we have been working hard to get everything finished for part is just about finished. I just have to tie up a few things now that my reports are done!

Well, I hope this makes up for my lack of posts in a while...I know I've done a few picture posts (and yeah, there is a picture in this one), but I thought it was time to let everyone know what's really been keeping the Kubeckza's busy!!

Bye Ace

Michael came home yesterday and found that Ace had passed away. Oreo (our other pup) has been sick a while and I guess Ace was, too. Michael got both of them around the same time and it looks like they are both going to leave around the same time.

Bye Ace - you were a good pup!
