When a man loves a woman . . and a family

I truly believe that children bring another dimension of love to the reltionship between man and wife; creating that child, watching it being born, and then struggling through the sleepless night, stinky diapers, and celebrating the joys of smiles, rolling over, and walking.

Chocolate Raisins, which food group?

My mom bought me a tub from Trader Joes. I started on them last night when I found them in her house. My surprise when she told me they were for me. I snacked all night long. Then at 6 am they were calling my name. "eat me, eat me". They are disappearing, by the handfuls. I have decided not to feel guilty. After all I am getting my fiber and my fruit.

So I have decided that I am not *really* eating junkfood, just fruit . . . . chocolate covered.

The Cable Guy

Well, actually it was DirecTV. And I am not bashing them. I am bashing the small company they sub-contract out to. We had no cable, we did everything. We restarted the system, adjusted the satellite, and stood on one foot and hopped around. Nothing worked. I called the company absolutely desperate. I had been missing cable sporatically (of course during primetime and the morning news) since Tuesday evening. I told them of our troubles and promised a guy would come out on Saturday between 8-12.

The Level II Ultrasound at 18 weeks

I was seriously procrastinating all the way there. I took a shower as late as possible, put the kids down for late naps, and was just dragging my feet. It all started when I was trying to decide what to take with me to do in the waiting room - that's when I remembered that last time I filled out my paperwork to join the local twins club.

First trip to the ER

From talking to other mother's of sons I hear it is a Rite of Passage. However, not one I want to do again anytime soon. Today I took my baby, 17 months, to the emergency room to get 3 stitches.

My daughter's 3rd Birthday

Today my daughter turns 3. I can't believe I just typed that. I am pregnant again and it feels like yesterday when I was pregnant with her. She has learned so much in her 3 short years, most of it good.
