Yesterday was my OB appointment! Hubby and I heard the heartbeat on the doppler. It was so awesome! It took a little bit to find the baby but once we did we had a nice strong heartbeat! 166 😀  Hope this means GIRL!!!

How Much Do You Do?


How much work do you personally do in your relationships? Not just the one with your spouse….the ones with your friends too.

With Hubby I’d say it’s like 40/60. Honestly I can say Hubby does more work than me. He has more patience with me then I have for myself 😉 It works for us.

As for my friends that is where it gets very uneven for me. I have some friends that are a nice 50/50. We text, talk, Facebook and hangout. Then I have other friends that I’d say were more 60/40. I do more texting and talking but it still goes both ways. Then there are the friends I feel like I do almost all the work. I feel like if I didn’t make the contact the entire relationship would just fizzle away. As I write this I am wondering if maybe that is what I should do (let the friendships dissolve) as it seems as if that is the way it is headed.

Well now I have something to ponder………what should I do????

Summer Flew By!!!


In a week school will be starting. I can’t believe it!!! Our summer just flew by. Most of my days were spent driving Goober to and from football practice. He had to be there by 7am. So I pretty much did not get a summer off.

Busy Bee started cheerleading this summer. She loves it. This is something she was made for considering her very loud voice 😆 I volunteered to be the team mom. It’s a lot of work but I love it. I do best when I have something to keep me busy.

So what did we do all summer??? We got some beach days in. Hubby joined us for a few trips too. We spent a lot of time hanging in the yard and enjoying the pool. I added some new ink to my “collection” and I got my lip and eyebrow pierced. I found time to get some reading in. I read about 6 or 7 books so far. If I keep up my reading hubby will buy me a Kindle :mrgreen: I had a rough time with my mom 😦 She is not loving my new look. As of now we are not speaking to each other.

Gosh writing all this down makes my summer seem so dull! It wasn’t our most exciting summer but I have to say I enjoyed myself.

I am looking forward to school starting. Busy Bee will be in full day so hopefully I will get more done this year. I’d like to start working with Jo-Jo since he wont be in preschool and maybe get some more sewing done too. I’ve been trying to save more money with coupons and I hope to have more time to search for good deals while the kids are off in school.  I really can’t think of anything else?? I’ve just been living day by day and enjoying what I can 😉

I do hope to get some more blogging in too 😉

It’s Back!


I knew it wouldn’t last forever. I was expecting it to come. I’ve been trying to night wean Gus so that he would sleep through the night. Approximately 4 weeks after starting this IT returned. I have to say it is weird to have this old friend back. One good thing that has come of this is that the pounds are melting well dripping away! I lost about 4 pounds right away and I’ve noticed that my appetite has decreased a bit. I’m sure it has to do more with less breastfeeding than it does with my monthly visitors return. Either way I am happy with the change 😉

On a side note this explains a lot for me. I was feeling quite moody and emotional last week. I even went as far as logging off of Facebook 😳 Now I know I wasn’t going crazy!!

Relief At Last!!!


I am finally feeling some relief. About 2 months ago I had a piece of my wisdom tooth break off. It was fine for almost 2 weeks. Then the pain set it. At first is was a come and go pain. Then it turned into a throbbing sharp wake you up from a deep sleep pain!! Last night I finally got it pulled. This was the first tooth I have ever had pulled. I was quite scared. At my moms suggestion I brought my ipod with me to distract me through the procedure. It went much quicker then I expected. I was in some pain last night, but nothing like the tooth pain of before.

Hopefully I’ll lose a few pounds from this 😆
