I just had to post these pics here. The first one I swear she looks like she was trying to dance, hehe, with her hand holding the edge of the dress.

The second one with her little grin. Gotta love the rolls on her arms.


Today I went to my niece’s dance recital. She did great, she won an award for best little hip hop dancer. How cute. Anyway, we took all the kids there, the baby was the best behaved. My almost 5 yr old was pretty antsy as well as my son, but I didn’t expect him to really enjoy dancing. LOL. The baby was pretty interested in the flourescent lights. Does anyone else’s baby just stare up at those lights too? I get the biggest kick out of watching her, she’ll try and twist her head off to look at them.

So after the recital we just came home. Little E was playing around in my room as I was in the living room feeding the baby. She was really quiet and mother’s always know, that when the room is quiet, most often they are up to no good. hehe. Anyway, she came out with her sweater on and jeans and said I’m going out to play with the girls. (my oldest and my neice). They just came in the house about a half hour ago and we put a movie on for them. I decided I better get all their pj’s on, chances are they may fall asleep watching the movie. As I was helping E get dressed, she took her shirt off and started laughing. She had a little girls bra on, which belongs to my 10 yr old and she had 2 nursing pads in the bra and was laughing about her new boobies. (these ones are quite puffy) That’s what she was up to while in my room! HAHA.

Survey Says!!!
I took this from Tonya’s Blog since I was going to do it a few posts back but ended up doing different ones. So since I have nothing in particular to post about today, I shall complete the survey.

1.Grab the book nearest to you, turn on page 18 and find line 4.

“A hundred years ago, the average white American could expect to live for only 48 yrears; nonwhites to age 38. Infectious diseases, such as smallpos and tuberculosis, claimed tens of thousands of lives, particularly among the young and the poor”. This is taken from one of my nursing texts from school. My computer desk is plauged with them.

2.Stretch your left arm out as far as you can & catch air?

Yah, I caught air.

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?

Oprah, well didn’t see all of it, but watched it cause it had some of the actors from Grey’s anatomy on it today 🙂

4. Without looking, what time is it?

I would say 7:47pm, Jeopardy is on in the background.

5. Now look at the clock, what time is it?

7:53pm. Good ol’ Jeopardy.

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

My typing and my oldest daughter R, brushing her teeth. lol. And the fan on in the bathroom and of course ‘jeopardy’ 😉

7.When did you last step outside? What were you doing?

I last went out at about 4pm. I was taking the baby over to my mother in laws. A lovely 2 minute walk, because I’ve mentioned before I could spit at their house they live so close.

8.Before you started this survey, what did you look at?

I was looking at Tonya’s Blog, then I was thinking hey I never did so that survey, must do that now, kids are all in bed. So here goes. Before that I was talking to my aunt on MSN.

9.What are you wearing?

I am wearing a green and pink striped t-shirt with my pj bottoms that are blue with ugly cats on them. Yah, totally don’t match but I just had to mop my floor up since my son “spilled” his juice on it. urgh.

10.When did you last laugh?

Earlier in the day when my son came in after he fell off his bike and said, “you know what, this sucks, my bike is bent, maybe pa can bend it back”. Anyway, after pa fixed it he said, “pa you should be one of dem mecanicicks”. (he had to go to speech therapy for a year and still prounounces words funny at times) I thought it was pretty cute.

11.What is on the walls of the room you are in?

My nursing degree parchment, my business degree parchment. Ummm, a mirror and an ugly painting of a clown my hubby loves. I will not let him put it in the living room so it stays in here, hidden.

12.Seen anything weird lately?

Not that I can remember.

13.What do you think of this quiz?

It’s all right, just another random quiz to get to know more about me.

14.What is the last film you saw?

Over the Hedge. We took the kids last sunday.

16.Tell me something about you that I don’t know.

Lets see. I worry alot. And I worry about things that I have absolutely no control over, for example the impending bird flu epidemic/pandemic. urgh. I would rather not know about it then to hear it on the news. After taking my microbiology courses, I know too much for my own liking about how the world is “overdue” for a pandemic, etc. So yah, that’s it. Also I am addicted to pretzels and diet pepsi. Yah didn’t know that either. 😉

17.If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?

Get rid of terrorism. That just plain old sucks. So that goes with world peace eh?

18.Do you like to Dance?

Not unless I have about half a pint of vodka in me. 😉

19. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?

Well my first child was a girl, I named her Rebekah Brianne.

20. Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?

If she were a boy, I would have called him Ethan Tyler. Ended up, that’s my son’s name.

21.Would you ever consider living abroad?

No, but I certainly would live closer to town than out in the wilderness. 😉

22.What do you want GOD to say to you when you reach the pearly gates?

Have a seat and enjoy the rest of your life 🙂

7 Weeks Today

Well, I can’t believe that our baby is 7 weeks old today. The time is just flying by. She’s getting soooo big. She weighs over 11 pounds now, and is getting too big for her 3 month sleepers. She’s just getting so long. I booked her appointment for her first set of needles for June 13. She was so close to laughing out loud yesterday, she’d be like, ooo, oooo, oo-ooo. LOL. She squealed at her father last night. Of course, not for me. *the one up at all hours, bathes you, etc*.
Oh and last night, she went to sleep at 11pm and slept until 4:30am. Didn’t I wake up at 2am and not be able to fall asleep until 4am. I hope I get a better sleep tonight.

I booked E’s appointment too for her immunizations. Her’s is for June 15th. I hope she doesn’t flip out too much when she gets the needles. She has to get 2 at this visit. Ack. At least with the baby she has no choice but to get them, but E will fight you like there is no tomorrow. I hope she does well. We shall see.

The weather around here is getting so nice and warm, but with that are TONS and TONS! of black flies. OMG, I actually think I have a “phobia” of them. I cringe everytime i see them come near me. I would rather stay in the house 24/7 then go out there and get attacked by them. Hubby is trying to get my gazebo together but for some reason he’s “stuck”. LOL. It seems that only by like 1/4″ it is too narrow for the bars at each end to screw into the main part.

Oh remember the post about the DVD camera, well I got my response. Apparently when we bought the camera, the salesman sucked us into buying the “expensive” disks. Well they are DVD-RAM, where you cannot finalize them. The only kind you can finalize are the DVD-R. URGH! I protected it from being able to record over it and that’s all I can do. Crappy for me. I did however buy the el cheapo ones that I can watch when you put in the dvd player. 😦

Ok, enough ramblings. Must make supper and do the homework thing.


I just got off the phone with a really good friend of mine. We went through nursing school together and she actually entered when we were in our 3rd year. The program was 4 years altogether. Anyway, we automatically clicked. We have very similar personalites. We’d do all our projects together, cause God knows there were a ton. We had the BEST time at graduation drinking it up, hehe.

This is her 2nd pregnancy and she’s 20 weeks along. I was talking to her last night asking her if she was going to ask if she was having a girl or boy. She said was. I was asking her how her visit went last week and she said she was measuring exactly at 20 wks and heartbeat was perfect. So she gives me a call and I said, well is it a boy or girl, she’s like GUESS??? I said, boy, she say, TWO! I’m like what the hell??? TWINS!!!!!!!!!!!! She’s all like, I can’t stop thinking about it, and I’m roaring at her saying, I=ME, I can’t stop thinking, and I’m not the one that’s pregnant with them. hehe.

She was telling me how at the ultrasound the lady put the wand on and then she saw them. She was like, ok, tell me that’s a head and a belly, the lady put up 2 fingers. I would have died. There aren’t any twins in her family either. I just can’t believe that the doctor had no clue, never suspected a thing! When they were measuring the babiesss, they had to get one in the image anyway, the other little one would creep his head around the corner and get in the pic. How cute! She still doesn’t know what the genders are, but she’ll find out, the u/s lady said she couldn’t get a good view. I just had to post about this, I’m so happy for her.

I AM: a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a niece, an aunt, a friend and a nurse.
I WANT: a new house, this 3 bedroom place is getting cramped, also we only have one bathroom. This is gonna be a problem in a few years.
I WISH: I didn’t have to live so darn close to all my in-laws.(hehe)
I HATE: being late for appointments.
I MISS: my old body, the one prior to this crappy crohn’s disease.
I FEAR: that something will happen to my children, like getting really sick or getting lost (wait didn’t that happen this week?)
I WONDER: what I’d be doing if I didn’t have any children.
I REGRET: buying my treadmill, come on I use it as a flipping clothes hanger.
I AM NOT: as organized as I’d like to be, actually my life is a whirlwind of chaos at the best of times.
I DANCE: only when I’m drunk. Damn, I have no rhythm at all.
I SING: to my baby.
I CRY: when I get frustrated and when I really want to tell someone off. I just try and spare other’s feelings and keep to myself, then I end up crying.
I AM NOT ALWAYS: patient with my children. Especially after having only 3 hrs of sleep and then having to listen to them fight. Ugh 😦
I MAKE WITH MY HANDS: meals and crafts.
I WRITE: blog posts and emails. I used to write essays and I even wrote an advanced major on teenage pregnancy.
I CONFUSE: people when I try and give directions. I am so geographically challenged. Must be because I haven’t traveled anywhere. LOL.
I NEED: to get my crohn’s disease in remission before my guts end up being in such a mess that I have to get a colostomy. I really don’t want that!
I SHOULD: probably run the tub for my little E since she needs to get in and get washed.
I START: making things but somehow don’t want to finish them. BUT, I made a baby blanket during my night shifts! Woo hoo, I did it.
I FINISH: those things when the guilt gets the best of me saying, complete this project.
I TAG: whoever wants this!


Saturday my little brother in law borrowed my video camera. It’s a DVD kind that once you finalize the disc you can watch in the DVD player. Anyway, he used it to video tape his girlfriends dance recital. So he came over and I went through the instructions and finalized it for him. Easy as pie! We were able to watch the video, even on our Xbox.

Then I thought, hey it’d be a good time to get our DVD’s finished the ones from Christmas and when the baby was born. So I proceed to do the exact same thing. Except that the option for finalizing is not there with my discs. I’m like, what the hell??? I don’t understand! I did exactly the same thing as I did with his disc so what is going on? Why can’t I do that! Anyway, I get a little more pissed off and tell hubby, I would love to just throw it through the window, but logic sets in and say, no you cannot fire your video camera out the window that’s not sensible. So I walk away!~

Needless to say, I never did figure that out. I just don’t have a clue. I did email the company stating exactly what model camera I have and what the screen shows me, I’m waiting on a response now. Just makes me so darn pissy when I can’t figure things out.

Emma in Canada thanks for telling me how to do that. Hehe, I just had to try it out!
