More Family

I can not believe I forgot to post this! Yesterday we met some more of Mikes family. His half sister Melanie stopped with her boyfriend. We chatted for a few hours before they took off and oh they are so darn to earth and real it was very refreshing to share some laughs with them.

Melanie was born before Mike on his Dads side so Mike has known her I just have never met her nor had our son Michael. They live in Texas and were up for a class reunion and to visit long lost family member's. Its weird hearing her talk about Mikes dad knowing that Mike has only seen him a few times and I never have probably never will. Melanie didn't want to admit to Mike but I guess he does look a lot like his father and she said Mark might even look more so. They might be stopping back here on Sat to go to the party with us too!


Ok So I had my ultrasound done on Monday and had my regular appointment on Tuesday where they did inform me that I have gallstones. A few moving ones that are just floating around in there and then a bigger one that seems to be stationary. Either way like I expected nothing they can do till little Miss Emily is born.

Just trying to keep busy and get things done before little Emily enters the world. The boys sanded the picnic table then we all primed and painted it. Looks so much better! I also finished sanding the bassinet base one last time and primed that. Now just needs a coat of paint a voila that can be put in her room too and be done!So I am getting to check things of that dreaded to do list! YIPPIE.

Tomorrow is my nephews graduation party, 18th birthday party, and send off to the Navy:( I hate that he has joined while we are at war but not much say here just have to hope and pray that he along with everyone else in the troops comes back safe and sound! I am proud of him for wanting to do this but man will I worry for him too.

Well soccer has officially started this week and so far they tied the first game and unfortunately lost the second. Michael sure looks like he is having a lot of fun though and there will be lots more games.I have been talking to Molly's mom aka Laura there which is so nice to have a mom to chit chat with!We met up at McDonalds after the game on Wednesday and Michael had a friend who came to watch the game with us. So 3- 11 year olds all hyped up with energy after the game and boy the laughs we had watching those goofballs. I have to say I was glad we went outside to eat because I think we may have just gotten kicked out of the place otherwise. They were doing no harm really just being silly normal fun kids!LOL

Well I better get off to do some chores around here.....

Happy 4th July

Happy 4th of July!

Well this past Tuesday I was in pain and my friend told me to call the nurse just to see what they think. Well now on Monday morning I am off to see if it is my gallbladder that is causing havoc in there along with Emily kicking it. So yet another ultrasound but this is a gallbladder one so no eating or drinking after midnight which will be easier then drinking a ton of water and not going to the bathroom. So I asked my mom questions about it and read online too in case that's what it really is and looks as if I need or should stay away from fatty foods that can trigger an attack. I also read that chances are I will just deal with at least until after little Emily is welcomed into this world. Although this is all hear say really......may not be that at all.

I signed up for a challenge at my local scrapbook store and I need to get busy on working on the double layout to take to show them on Tuesday. Even though the store is on the north side of Wausau and with all the construction I would hate to see them leave so I am making a point to get up there more and shop!

Well not much else going on except that I was handy woman this week and put together Emily's little shelf unit that the baskets I got a while ago go on. The shelf unit had been on back order.
So now I am staring at her room trying to decide if I want to rearrange some furniture before I hang stuff up on her walls. The room just doesn't flow well I don't think right now. Here is a little look at how it is going though.

Hot Hot Hot

Wow has it been hot! 93 with humidity today. So that means living in the pond and pulling weeds, swimming, raking the sand area. Michael had a friend over for the last 3 days so that was nice for him to keep busy and entertained. We dropped him off then ran to buy more stuff for the pond. I think we are set for toys this season and then some.
So the second 3 hour long glucose tests came back in the normal range this time so that was a nice relief. My next Dr. appt is this Thur morning. I now have moved up to having to go every 2 weeks. So that means I am getting closer to her little birthday YIPPIE. I do still have a lot I want to do before she comes but am sure getting to the point where her coming a little early would be nice too. LOL
Thats about it not much to chat about I guess........

Doctors appointments and more.....

Well today I had my glucose test to check for gestational diabetes. They also checked to see if I was anemic and I am needing more iron but that was not to bad yet. However, guess the first glucose test showed I was elevated so that means I get to go back tomorrow morning for a 3 hour test! UGH They told me I could bring my laptop, or a book or people watch but I should stay seated as much as possible in between all the times I have to have my blood drawn. Which is 4 times OUCH! Hopefully I will pass tomorrow and not have to worry about it but if not that means off to see a dietitian to tell me what I need to know to about what I am allowed to eat and drink etc.....oh fun!

She is a little mover in there and we heard her little fast heartbeat at 160 again which is always music to me ears. I am also to the stage where I need to go to appointments every 2 weeks now. Who knows if that will increase if I do in fact have Gestational Diabetes guess I will find out more tomorrow.

Well Michael is officially had his last day of 5th grade and is off for summer vacation. His dad and him are building a outside wood fort to play in so far looking like a lot of fun. He is wanting to see the 3D movie UP that's out and well that sounds good to me so will have to see how Dads schedule looks like and do a 3 musketeer date night soon:) Of too pick up the house sure I will come back sometime tomorrow to fill in on the new results of the tests.

My First Paper Bag Album

So I made my first paper bag album for a friends baby shower and I am so happy to report both mommy and daddy love it! Also, one of her guests wanted to get a closer look and just loved it and asked if I had my own website!!!!! OMG that alone made my day but what mattered most was the babies parents loved it.

It has got me thinking that maybe I finally should get more serious and start scrapping more. Fill up my Etsy store and see how I do. Ebay and auctivia have just become so greedy that I am not sure if I want to stick with them maybe soon I will have a site of my own. hmmmmm here a few pictures of the album. They didn't find out the sex so it had to be a neutral theme.....

Track Day

My son had his school class track day.He raced in the 600 dash the 800 dash and did the high jump. When he came home a few weeks and told me what he was participating well I was quite nervous for him. See I was in Track and Field for a few years and well I know I have a very hard time running long distance and to me that is anything over 400 dash.Well anyways he proved my worries were for nothing the kid jumped pretty good for not being tall and he actually WON the 600 dash. He did pretty well in the 800 too considering he was pretty tired still from the 600 he gave it his all and he is so excited to get those ribbons. Watching my friends daughter run her races was fun too she did great too. Can not believe they are growing up so fast. I still remember crying at his first day of school.......his first school play.......but watching him race today shows me what a strong boy he is becoming.I also watched at how polite he and my friends daughter are. That made both of us beam proud at them. Overall what a fun day hanging out with my friend watching our kids have fun too:)

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

So it is a raining day again.....which is ok because I have a house to clean and chores to do inside. Memorial Day weekend was just gorgeous so how can I complain with an all day rain? It will keep things green and growing too. DS is having a friend come over this weekend so I am trying to do the whole house clean. It really isn't too bad considering I have spent less time on the computer these days and more time into cleaning the house and of course playing:)
I have to admit I really am procrastinating a scrapbook project. I know I will kick myself later for it too but am nervous when it comes to gift giving my creations away. They always get good reviews but still I am nervous.
Well I guess not much to say today. Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!

It's a Girl!

Yup I just knew I would forget my blog yet again......someday I might just be a hard core blogger. Anyways yes we got our little girl coming. I could not believe it when she first said it was a girl but then they got another shot of her and they said it for sure is a girl and explained the picture as to why they could tell. I tell you they are good at figuring out those pictures.
So I have been slowly shopping here and there for her and her new little nursery. I came to decide on a butterfly/flower theme. I got so lucky shopping some garage sales a little over a week ago and got the most perfect crib bedding set. I will be taking pictures of her room soon just need to hang some stuff on the wall and I will snap some to share.
So it is Memorial Day weekend and we had a blast today we took our son to the pizza factory, he just loves that place, and then we did a little shopping and picked up some malts/shakes for the ride home. We then did a family movie night. On the downside hubby just got called into work to fix something so I decided to hop online.
I have not been on much lately...... which in reality has been nice. I have been getting a lot of deep cleaning and organizing done.
So my son is almost done with school he will soon be the big 6th grader. Wow how time flies by. I do have to say with all the fun activities they have planned before classes are finally out he might as well be done now. LOL He gets to go bowling, going to the zoo, a talent type show they are working on as well as practicing for the big school track and field yea with all this going on how much school work is really getting done? I guess they all need this end of the year release and the longer he is in school the more my house is getting and staying clean too.
So I need to start scrapping again.......sheesh can't not believe I always put that off too. I am starting with a mini album for a friend and her baby shower that is coming up soon. Hopefully that gets me on a roll to scrap family pictures too and more. ok enough said for one night off to guitar hero jam with son LOL

I have news

Ok maybe I am just not the blog person.LOL

I have news though I am pregnant almost 16 weeks along will be going in for my ultrasound soon to see how this little Jellybean is doing and maybe get to find out if I need to buy pink or perhaps blue. I seem to like girl names more then boy names really having a difficult time coming up with a boy name I like.

I have not been scrapping as I have had some issues with pain, spotting and was sooooooooooo so tired. The tiredness seems to be leaving a bit and am doing ok some pains but the spotting thank goodness is gone, hopefully for good now. So I am trying to get my house back in order and then get back to scrapping since I need to work on DS pictures before there is another little one to scrap. I also want to list more stuff to sell so I can buy little clothes, toys and of course diapers LOL galore. So I will say I will blog more often but we know how that goes don't we. :)
