short and sweet

Well hello there.

It's me. and yes, I am still alive.

WOW, it's been forever since I have posted. I am sorry.

Although, it's probably better I haven't posted. It's been a doozy.

Starting off with me changing medication ( the crazy meds ) because the one I have been on for the last year and a half was tearing my stomach to shreds. So the doc put me on this other medication which I am allergic to, apparently. Hives everywhere. Oh yeah, it's pretty. Anyway.... I originally went to the doc because I have TMJ. For those who don't know, my jaw is coming dislocated everytime I open my mouth. So, I am on steroids and pain meds for that too.

Fun times.

So since I am allergic to the crazy meds I stopped taking them 3 days ago. Today I am dizzy as fuck. I mean REALLY dizzy. I have a final exam at 12:30 today and another final presentation tomorrow for another class, so I took the old crazy meds this morning hoping that I would feel just a little better.... maybe better enough to drive myself to North campus to take my test today and not fail it because I cannot see the pages..... they are wiggly you know. oy.

So thats the deally-yo.

The kids are just getting over double ear infections. All 3 kids. Another round of visits to the docs office.

Kevin and Bailee missed almost a week of school. AGAIN.

BUT, I had parent teacher conferences yesterday and BOTH children are smartie pants'. BOTH children are doing great. BOTH children are showing signs of "advanced" learning. LOVE IT!

I warned Bailee's teacher about Justin next year.... his horns are not around right now, but be sure they will show their red pointy selves once Christmas has come and gone........ believe you me.....

My daughter turned 5 on Sunday.


Can you guys believe it???? FIVE YEARS OLD!!! For some of you, that means I have known you for 5 whole years! This is the age Kevin was when all the crap happened with my ex husband. I just cannot believe how time flies. That also means that Jesse and I can celebrate our 5 year anniversary in January.......


We had a pretty good day for her birthday. Presents in the morning. Jesse's Xmas party for the kids at noon. Jesse's parents house for a party for Bailee and Justin at night. So fun.

Have I told you guys how much I love Jesse's family? Seriously. They are amazing people. They love my kids just like they were their own. They are such amazing people. ALL of them.

OH! Did I mention that Jesse's grandparents gave us their van???? Oh yeah! We are now the proud owners of a 2000 Olds Sillhouette. ( sp ) YUP! It's a mini van... and up until now I was COMPLETELY anti minivan, but you know what... its damn convenient to have it. For more reasons than just the kids. It's been a god send with all the doc and dentist appts..... It's amazing that they just GAVE it to us.

God I love that family.

and on that note.... I have to go pick up Bailee......

I am thankful for Facebook and MySpace because I don't have to worry about you being dead or alive, I had no idea about some of that though! (SHAME!!!!)
Well I guess we have known each other close to 3 1/2 years because Bailee was a bitty girl when I found you and that stuff was still fresh! Justin was a baby baby, I remember his first birthday so, GOD! Time flies!
I had the same feelings on the mini van until my BIL gave me one earlier in the year. It is SO nice with the kids and shopping. Sometimes I have 4 kids (nieces) with me and let me tell you, nothing like it! Enjoy! Hope your meds get straightened out, side effects..YUCK!

I can't believe that Bailee is 5! That's insane. Means we've "known" each other for a while now too.

I remember cuddling with Bailee when she ahd her first ear infection at 5 months. Poor kiddos I hope they are feeling better! I hope you get your meds straightened out soon!
I felt the same way when my dad called me up and asked me if we wanted a mini van. I cant drive a car anymore! I love how much I can see in my Silhoutette! It has to be so nice not to have to walk to school everyday and to have some freedom!!! Plus with the gas prices going down (knock on wood) it's easier on the budget.
