Almost functional!

We're back online! I cant upload pictures yet but I am sitting in my own house, typing on my own keyboard and it feels GRAND!
'I AM LEGEND' was incredible. I almost left 7 times. I'm not good with scary anyway... and pregnant, I'm just ridiculous! I thought I was going to have several heart attacks! I've never seen more scary creatures; not even in my nightmares. Go see it but wear Depends Undergarments.
The unthinkable happened to us a few days ago. I lost Cohen at Kohl's Department Store. He was sitting on the floor playing with a toy so I was looking at the rack right by him... and then he was GONE. I looked frantically for probably 2 minutes before I alerted an employee. I heard someone call a "Code Adam" over the intercom and instantly there were a dozen employees asking me to describe him. I lost it as I described what he'd been wearing, how tall he is, and told them his name. I remember saying, "He's not even two yet..." NIGHTMARE! Even with all of us looking for him, it took another 5 minutes (which seemed like 45) before I heard the intercom announce "Code Yellow". The employee with me said that meant he was at customer service. He'd been sitting on the floor in one of the dressing rooms, happily playing with his toy. He didn't even know he was lost!
Speak of the devil, he's awake. The angel has slept from 8 to 8 four nights in row! PLEASE let this be a new trend!

Congrats on having your computer back!

My hubby and I are dying to see Legend movie. And we love scary, so I'm sure we'll love it. Just trying to find the time to squeeze it in. He's going to be working lots of days in a row the next 2 weeks, so I guess we'll have to wait til January. Oh well.

And the CODE ADAM thing! We totally almost had to do that in TX when Nathaniel was about the same age. We were in Toys R Us. HOly Cow I was freaking out!!! I totally know what you mean. I thought I was doing ok trying to find him & Ben was running all over the whole store. But when Ben kept shaking his head NO to me & I finally had to go to the counter and start to explain our situation, I started to cry. Then suddenly we found him outside (it was a corridor w/ carts & playhouses) playing in a playhouse all by himself! I have no idea how he got out there cuz I was standing right next to the doors when we lost him. I swear my heart stopped & didn't start again until much later and I could cry more in the car! So glad that Cohen is OK!

We saw I Am Legend last weekend. I loved it. Wasn't scared at all. Meredith had to walk out though. She was terrified.

Oh man I am dying right now. That is so scary about Cohen. Trey will run away from me and hide underneath the clothing rack. I can't shop with him anymore because of this. I'm glad it all turned out well. :)

I would probably break down too if Scotty got lost like that. He tried to do that today in JC Penny today. I can't believe how fast little boys can go. He crawled under numerous racks of clothes and I finally caught him running up by the registers. Naughty little boys!!

How scary Jill! I am so glad it didn't take long to find him and that he didn't know to be scared.

Oh my, thats is the worst feeling ever that happened to me in Wal Mart of all places. Jake was hiding under a rack. I wanted to cry. I'm happy that everything is okay. Hope you have a nice christmas...

I think that I just had a heart attack reading this story. I'm so glad that he was alright...

Whoa! Can I call you to freak out the first time I lose Morris? Everyone says it happens at least once...
On another note, what are you doing to get him sleeping so well? Whatever the secret, you could make a mint off a book...

Your "losing Cohen" story was even scarier than the movie! That movie scared the pants off of me, but I loved it afterwards!
