WHAT do they teach you in grade 1???

So.. had to note this before I forget.. we went out with Tina and David and their kids for dinner.. and we're all sitting around the table.. and these two little boys come over and start talking to Tisha..

the younger boy asks if she can have one of his skittles.. the older boy says no.. she'll choke.. I know lots about babies! "You'll learn about babies in grade one!.. guess what else you learn in grade one!! You learn how to breastfeed!!!"

I nearly fell off my chair laughing. lol

Well another week has gone by.. what's new..

Ok.. The Brick royally messed up.. brought us the wrong table set.. I wouldn't have complained if it had been a better set than what we paid for but it was about 400$ less than what we had bought so we had to complain.. They told us to use the set they had dropped off until tuesday when they could bring us our set.. with three hours to assemble the set there was no way I was doing that.. so it stayed in boxes for the week.. BIG boxes.. taking over my dining room.. fun fun.. on the upside they brought the right set yesterday.. and you'd think with all the hassle they'd throw in free assembly.. but no.. took me 3 hours to put it all together.. but I did it! I feel powerful! I am woman! hear me roar! Pity Matty was too sick to eat on it last night with us.. but the kids and I broke it in last night with a nice meal of spaghetti..

As for my tummy troubles.. I got set up with a monday appointment for the surgeon.. so rescheduled Tisha's appointment for today.. monday the surgeon called back.. rescheduled for today.. got up this morning feeling kinda chaotic as I was also supposed to pick up the photo's today.. The surgeon's office called.. rescheduled me for tomorrow! problem solved! I did mention to them that 3:30 pm is not really a good time as I will have to bring 4 kids with me.. they seemed ok with that.. I doubt they've ever met my kids though.

So we went to the doctors... Tisha and Matt's dr. agreed to take me on as a patient so I have a new family doctor! yay! Tisha got two shots today.. she's cranky as heck now... and I got to pick up the pictures from sears!

We had decided we needed a family portrait since the last time we got one with me and Matt in it was when Drew was 2 months old. I'd like them a lot better if I lost 40 lbs.. but hey.. if it's anything like the other pics we've had done I'll look back on them in 5 years and think I looked great..lol We got some done with just us and one of each kid and one of me and Tisha and mom and one of us all with mom too.

blech!!

OK.. so I'm on the web.. trying to find relief.. and I find this recipe.. and I should have known better.. absolutely no good can come of zucchini right?

"Green Soup Recipe for Relief of Gallbladder Pain
One bunch parsley
3 medium zucchini
½ lb. Green beans
5 stalks celery

Steam together for 8-10 minutes.
Or partially steam and boil in ½ cup water.
If you have a steamer, you retain more nutrients and flavor with that method.
Puré in a blender.

This soup is wonderful for relief from all sorts of gastric disturbances such as stomach pain, gas, and indigestion. I do not add any fat or salt to this recipe. It can be used anytime but is particularly useful as a three day fast with nothing else but water. It is both nourishing and easy to digest. You can alter the amounts to taste. More beans add more sweetness."


and all I can say is.. BLECH! eww.. yuck.. this is the most vile disgusting tasting nasty ass shit I have EVER eaten..

sucks ass that I'm going to be eating a LOT of it.. argh... please just kill me now.

hiya y'all

ok.. so an update on me first.. I went to the hospital today for an ultrasound.. the doctor said I have "a WHACK of gallstones". They referred me to a surgeon and I am going for that appointment on the 23rd. Hopefully I can make it til then without another attack.. pray for me.

ok.. now..
I spent a while doing a photo shoot with Joey last night.. just for kicks.. he's such a silly kid and almost impossible to get a nice picture of because he's so silly.. so I figured I'd share the silly ones with you since they're so funny.

and Tisha got lots of nice mail today :) a new diaper and a new pair of wool longies!
here's her funky new diaper
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
and her awsome longies which she is currently napping in :)
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
to those of you that haven't heard of longies.. basically it's wool pants made out of an old sweater that she can wear instead of plastic pants over her diaper. Especially nice because there's no elastic or rubber and they breathe which is really good for a rash and nice and comfy for her. It's really cool because wool is both water repellant and super absorbent.. so it repels the moisture back into her diaper.. and what it doesn't repel it soaks before it soaks you :)
.. oh.. and this is cute.. gave Tisha a bubble bath today.. she thinks bubbles are yummy!
in this pic she was kinda laughing at Celina

and here's a pic of Tisha in her pretty easter dress. You can see the difference a nice camera makes as this was taken on grandma's camera when I was over visiting on friday :)

That's the one pinafore dress I made before.. but I had to take off the pinafore because the stupid lace came apart and I have to fix it. Oh well.. that's what I get for using lace I got from value village. lol
easy to fix at least.

ok and THIS is the last pic of the day... I just finished this cute little dress for Tisha :)

Happy Easter!!

Well.. finally got a diagnosis from a doctor.. I have gallstones.. clogging the common duct in my liver I guess.. so I'm going all jaundice and stuff.. fun fun.. but on the upside on tuesday I get to go back to the hospital and they can ultrasound me and then hopefully remove the stones that day..downside is that pretty much ALL of my favorite foods are off limits for something like the rest of my life :(
It's been a pretty cool easter. We spent friday night sleeping over at grandma's and got to see my cousin Jenn and meet her little one McKenna. (she was SOOOO cute!) We went out shopping with my mom last week and got the kids all new outfits and they looked so cute. The boys got matching outfits and Tisha got a really cute little smocked dress and a cute little jumper.

That's the one she's wearing in these pics.. They had their easter egg hunt this morning.. This house has so many nice spots to hide easter eggs :) and then tonight we had Dad, Kelly, Melissa, Cameron and Alun over for dinner. Got to look through pics of Melissa's baby. 3d ultrasounds are cool!
The other day Drew saw Herbie out front.. he got a really cool pic.

It's a really impressive copy of Herbie considering the guy did it all from photo's. I must say Drew got a really nice pic of it.
The other thing that was cool this week was getting my dolls organized.. I finally have a place for them! My mom brought down some shelves and cut them down to 7 feet long so we put three of them up on my bedroom wall and now my dollies all fit in my bedroom :)
these ones on the shelves

and then Melissa (my sis) tells me that they have cpk babies on sale for 10$ at walmart... hmmm.... methinks I have space for a FEW more.. lol
hmmmm.. what else.. what else..
OH!!!! we got a new table set! for the first time in my adult life I will have a table and chairs that MATCH!! I'm really excited because I've always wanted to have pressback chairs! They should get delivered around the end of april because they had to order in a couple of the chairs .. they only had 4 in the store and we wanted 6. The best part is the 5 year keep it perfect guarantee.. where if my kids color on it.. or if the chairs break.. they fix it to perfect or give me a new one :)

Oh one more pic of Tisha.. she can sit on the couch now.. not very well.. but she can do it!
