Welcome to my world...

Well.. just putting in an update.. it's been a while. I had my surgery.. it went ok.. it's amazing how much going for surgery reminded me of giving birth in a hospital.. scary.. made me cry.. I'll stick with homebirth if we have more.. I was feeling pretty good a few days ago but yesterday was feeling pretty bad.. really tender and swollen.. so I got some antibiotics.. the incision around my belly button was infected and my lymph glands in my groin were swollen like crazy.. it hurt to walk yesterday and I couldn't bend down without it really hurting like crazy.
Mom and I went shopping yesterday.. We picked up some cute little shoes and a bathing suit for Tisha and got Drew his lightsaber so he can be Jedi with the other kids. We also grabbed 10 bags of sand for Joey's sandbox. Then we all went to free burger day at Harvey's. Matt and I made up an awesome trout dinner on the barbecue. Matt tried a new recipe for hot asparagus salad.. It was delicious! We found out that Tisha likes trout more than she likes bread! Once mine was gone she was trying to get Matt's off of his plate..lol



I got some cute pics of Matt yesterday

Mom bought Joey some new sand for his sandbox.. Got the cool sandbox off of freecycle. Joey was so happy to finally get some sand.. he bought himself some sand toys with his birthday money last month and has been waiting since then for sand.

surgery went well

well.. I'm done surgery.. that was yesterday.. I'm finally unstoned enough to type. Still in a bit of pain but no where near as bad as I thought it would be.
They said my gallbladder was like a little bag packed with gravel.. with over 100 stones... and adhesions all over it.. so it was stuck to all my other internal organs because it had been inflamed for so long.. which explains why I was getting such bad attacks and so often..

I tried out a new pattern for Tisha's diapers.. Copied her Motherease dipes that I love.. only made them out of flannel and used velcro and they're pocket dipes.. Quite cute I'd say :) Sewed these the night before surgery and the morning before to keep my mind off of it.

I think they turned out really nice.. I have some nice bamboo fabric coming in the mail to stuff them with so they should be quite absorbent.. I'm pretty excited about that. I can't wait to use them on her little bum.. they're so cute.. I also can't wait til I feel well enough to sew again so I can finish the rest of the ones I have partway done.. some are hey diddle diddle.. some are blue with little alphabets and diaper pins.. some have hearts all over.. just frickin adorable.. lol. and I gotta say.. I'm REALLY happy with how they've turned out so far.

another fun day

well.. yesterday was fun.. so was the day before.
Just a little post on what we've been up to.
I hit the mall and the fabric store the day before yesterday.
Got Tisha a couple new outfits and picked up a really cool pattern to make some outfits for when she's a bit bigger.
I picked up this dress finally.. I've put it back 3 times before I bought it.. keep going back to the store.. keep picking it up. Bought the matching hat a few days ago.. It's not a very good picture cuz my camera is cranky lately. But you get the general idea.

I was really really excited to find this pattern! It's a new pattern for matching cabbage patch kids clothes with kids clothes.

and I picked up some dye to dye her diapers pretty colors :)
