Ok so I have done some reasearch and checked out youtube... It does seem that one size diapers are a good investment. On youtube I watched several reviews from people who use and sell one size diapers. The one complaint is when baby is smaller you do not get as tight of a fit so they leak. No biggy to me I have lots of prefolds. I just need to narrow down the type of diapers I want. I am drawn to the kissaluvs. They have a onw size that you use a snappi or pins to close it...or a snug diaper cover. Kissaluvs also has a all in one one size diaper...kinda price though. Does anyone have any thoughts??

Cloth diapers

So with me being pregnant I have been doing the whole cloth diaper thing again. So I have been looking online to find good deals. I found some that go from birth to potty training. Does anyone know if these would be a good way to go? Is anyone making them these days?? Could I get someone to make them for me?? I really want to cloth diaper again but not sure what way to go. Help please??? I hate the cost of diapers. Although I'm currently blessed with my dad buying them for me...but I can't do that for another 2-3 years.

Ob appointment went well. I have to get and ultrasound in a few weeks. Doc wants it no later than 8 weeks along. She did not seem concerned about anything I think she is just being careful with my family history of diabetes and my new migraine issues with this baby. She even gave my a perscription that is safe for me to take with the baby to help if I do get a headache.

The house offer was accepted with all of our conditions. I'm so excited. Now it is the paperwork game. Closing is around March 19th. It is the chicken house. We are going to go to the city to get it in writing before we get anything rolling on the chickens. I even have an idea for a cage for when they are still in the house. Anyway...I will keep you posted on both the house and the baby.

Let the bidding begin....

We have put a bid on the house in the country. It has almost an acre of land. A nice huge fenced in back yard with a barn, chickens here I come. It also has a section for a garden fenced off by the barn. We are really hoping for this one. We even found out that it has city water and sewer not a well and septic like it said in the description. It is so awesome to think we could be home owners again.

Ok so I went to the doctor again for my foot. Still no work unless I sit. Which my boss found me a sit down job...just has to update my computer access so I can do it. However, they still don't know what is wrong with it so they wanted me to have an MRI, but the MRI won't let me have it until the get clearance from a doctor because I'm pregnant. I never thought a foot injury would cause such joy and issue. Joy because we found out we are pregnant, issues because everytime they order something I have to wait or not get it. Don't get me wrong I do not want anything to hurt the baby but if I can't have the tests then just treat my foot for what it could be...broke. It would be so much easier...right?

Lovin' Sunday!!

We started our day listening to the rain fall. It was coming down hard. It was really nice. We went to church. The talks were wonderful. We went to primary where Rachele announced the new baby. We had a good day over all. I even got to start the blanket. It looks so good so far. I love my looms.

Saturday, January 23, 2010


Ok so I have been slacking on my crafts...who can blame me. I work full time, go to school full time, I have two kids and really no room to do anything.

Not anymore...I want to do the things I have learned to I am finishing Lee's scarf and moving on to a blanket. I am using the knifty knitter looms to make them. I have made scarfs before very easy just cast on and flip till you get the length you want. a blanket I'm going to actually have to count out the rows and not lose track. I would hate to have to start over. I even found a quilt design that I might try.

Big news!!

I did not get the bone scan to see what is wrong with my foot...the reason why...I'm pregnant!!! We are very happy. It was a little sooner than we planned but it really isn't up to us is? Funny story to how we found out...
I woke up in the morning (Tuesday) to help get the kids up and get going for my bone scan. Well have been feeling "odd" lately...I wasn't late (that doesn't happen until tomorrow) but just felt "odd". So I got up and grabbed a test (always have some on hand). Took it and it was positive. I only checked because I knew that the bone scan dye could hurt the baby so I thought I better check and make sure just in case...I would have been so stressed if I had not listened to the voice and took the test. Due date is Sept 25th per family doctor...I say Sept 30th...need to get one of those prego tickers on my blog. Updates soon...

FOOT!! and DAD

Ok so I'm off till Monday. I get a bone scan tomorrow. I will be radioactive...what fun. I was really hoping to go back today but better to be safe than sorry right?

Dad goes Thursday to get his testing done. At least some of it anyway. He gets his bone scan and Ct scan done. Then on the 29th he gets yet another biospy and the Dr wants to get a good look at everything, so we can figure out the game plan. I think dad wants to go with the external pouch rather than in internal or neo-bladder. We will see. It's going to be a long few (4-8) weeks. Dad likes the new Dr. and feels really comfortable with him. Finding someone you can trust is half the battle.

My Sunday was good. Lee did the lesson this week. I don't have to work...only because I'm still off from my foot. I think I got my house answer. But I am going to continue to pray. Rachele is feeling sick but is not whiny yet. Kenny is doing good. Lee is going to call a guy for some work, I am so geateful for that. Some of the pressure will be off me. I'm hoping to go back to work this week.

Houses, houses and more houses

Ok so we are still searching. When our agent gets back from vacation in Mexico I think we are going to put a bid on the house with almost an acre. However we are going to keep looking. I feel that is the house for us. It is the only one that we have felt that we even want to put a bid on. Lee is not as confident as I am, but we drove by it yesterday and he is talking about it more. He even told me to go ahead and order some books on raising chickens. We still need to get the house and make sure the city will let us have does have several farms on either side of the property we are looking at but they might be grandfathered in, Lee said that maybe with the property having a barn it could be grandfathered in too. I will keep you posted as we continue our hunt for houses and our bidding.

This was my 170th post. Not as many as Emily's but hey it's a start.

House Hunting!!

So we have been doing some house hunting. Before going to a realtor we looked up a bunch of houses online. So when we went to see her we had a list for her to check out for us and set up showings.

Day 1: We found one that we kinda liked out of four.
Day 2: We found two we liked and one we really like. We like it so much that Julie is looking up current owners buying price and a few other details for us so we can possibly put in a bid. We still need to pray about it and find out some details could we have a chicken coup in the back yard...yes Emily I want one too. It sits on almost an acre and the back is all fenced in with a little barn and section in the back for a garden. I can see things from my house in this house and it is so exciting. I will keep you all posted. The other two are very nice and have a little more room because they have four bedrooms but this one has more room to expand if need be. One even has an indoor year round pool. I like that feature.

So I was at work transporting a patient from CT scan. As we rounded the corner the bed ran over my foot. It was a bariatric bed so it is bigger and heavier than normal beds plus the patient was in the bed. I have to go to occupational health to see what they want to do. I did not break it but it really swollen and hurts a lot. It is brusing up a little. I can't even wear a sock it hurts that much. So no shoes either.

Doing good!!

I can say that I have been doing really good with getting my homework done. I am still checking things out but not as frequent. I hope I can stay on track.

My dads bladder cancer is back and he has an appointment next week at UofM with there Bladder cancer specialist. We are keeping our fingers crossed.

Oh yeah and if you haven't seen my FB we are house hunting. We got approved for a mortgage at a good rate that could even go down a little more. Now we just need to find the house.

New discovery!!

So Rachele lost her second tooth last week. No big deal right??? She even pulled it herself. Well her new one is growing of right now it is really far behind the line. So it looks like at this point she might need braces. I know she is only six I should not worry until more teeth fall out and the new ones grow in but...I fear the cost of braces. My current insurance covers 1000, but that will barely touch the cost. Some might say if it is only one tooth then why bother but me I say her self-esteem will be higher if her teeth look like everyone elses. Is that wrong of me? Any comments would be so grateful.

Okay so I decided to work hard on my school work this year. So far I'm doing so so. I need to buckle down a little more. I need to figure out how not to be so addicted to my blogging and facebook. So if You do not hear from me do not feel bad. I will try not to leave you all hanging. I might still be on everyday and try to comment but we will see if it distracts me.


So after Christmas Lee got the bug to clean. So he started with the kids room and their toys. We ended up giving away three totes full of toys. Two to the church for nursury and one to Kenny's babysitter. I think all the toys are out of the garage other than outside toys. It is nice to have someone to do all the work that you think about but do not do because it is overwheling. The kids room looks better and a bit bigger too. Thanks honey.

Today was a good day for church...despite the bitter cold air. We had a great fast Sunday, the first in a long time that I could actually fast for. I was not sick or working the night before. I even found the strength to bare my testimony. It was simple and short but I think I got my point across.

We had a nice dinner with the whole family. I think dad still cooks a lot in hopes that we will come over and eat. Sometimes he just texts us all and tells us to come over.

We hooked up the Wii fit and tried it out. Looks like it is going to be a nice way to lose weight.
