Moving day...

Ok so the guy we are getting our house from has a close date for his new house...Aug 27th. So with any luck we will move the first or second week of Sept depending on what weekend I have off. We think that Rachele is going to start school at her old school then move her once we move...still not 100% sure on that yet. So happy to have found something.

We had a visit today from a couple of Lee's aunts.

Sharon who lives here in Michigan and Annette from Tennessee.

Annette was up visiting because her brother asked her to come up when he left Tennessee last week!!

Anyway she (Annette) asked about the "tumor" Lee's mom had in her brain. Lee asked why...well she has one too. I have been with Lee for 13 years total and his mom as always called it a tumor...when he called his dad he said it was just a "fluid sac" in her brain. She (his mom) said that it is genetic...well 3 out of 4 sisters have/had it!!!

Annette and Sharon have been researching it on the Internet and women/girls are more prone to get this condition!!

So now I'm panicked...Rachele is 6 and complains of headaches...that is the first symptom!!! So when I go to my neurologist in August I'm asking him about this...I mean should I have her checked or wait or what??? What would any of you guys do??

Can someone tell me why some people can get away with things but others can't???

A co-worker had a family member pass away...I feel sorry for her because it was her dad and hey I can feel her pain. However she is taking almost 6 weeks off work!!!

I wanted one day for when Lee's grandpa died and could not get it even if I used vacation time!!!

Another person can pre schedule overtime but yet some other people can't!!

I have no idea why this is? Am I being pity?? Am I ranting again??

Not sure why this bothers me. It is kinda like when my fellow coworkers have had family pass away we start a collection for them and give them a can't bring them back but hey it is nice. Well when I had 2 deaths in the same week no one did that for me...I did get a card from one co worker...very nice of her. I also got a card from one of the RN's that took care of my mom a lot. So sweet of her!! Any who do you guys have any ideas??

I keep thinking it is not very Christ like to have these thoughts...I need help!!

All better!!!

I just need to rant...ignore my last post!!!

I told Lee all about my day after he got home from his 11 hour day...he said I need to go to the park but I need to watch doing that because then they will want to go everyday...even if the weather is bad!!!

Kenny is doing awesome with potty training...just need to get the night time thing down...but I'll deal with a wet pull up from night time any day as long as he goes on the big potty during the day.

Rachele has been a little on the sassy side...she does not get that is only 6 not 16. I know all mothers of young girls goes through this but she seems to be doing it more and more. Anyone else having this isssue??

I need a vacation...on 7 tower!!

Ok for those of you that do not know 7 tower is where the crazies are in my hospital!!!

Kenny is fine with out Rachele and Rachele is fine with out Kenny...but when you get them together they drive me Lee would say "you want more"!!!

I don't think it would bother me so much if they did not tag team me!! They know I will cave which is why they do it...I need to fix that!!!

The thing that set me off today is the fact that Rachele comes in from out back saying Kenny peed on her...the back of her short were soaked...hello how can you let someone pee on you to get you that wet!! Then Kenny comes in and says no sissy peed herself..ok so who do I believe???

So Rachele changes her cloths...Kenny then comes in the livingroom with a pair of pants because his shorts are "yucky" they are not...he changed cloths once today I'm not going to do that again...after a huge ordeal he is wearing his shorts!!!

I stood my ground...but boy do I need a break...why do they push my buttons??? I love my kids but does anyone want to borrow them for the day??
Ok not really...I do think I need to find more things to do with them so they do not aggravate me so much!!!

Ok so it looks we are going to get the house in Berkley.

After a long search and failed attempts to get a house of our own we have one...

It is a nice little house that will suit our family just right. It will fit us all and has room to grow. I won't be able to have chickens but maybe I'm not meant to have them...I would be heart broken if one died. I only say that because I'm so emotional on lots of things.

I hope that come September we are ready to move and join our old ward...Southfield. Maybe we can get them to help us unload a truck load...I'll try to get pictures and post them later.

The Craft Bug!!

I have the craft bug!!! I hope to have some stuff done to post by tomorrow night. I have a dress in mind for Rachele, a few skirts for me, and as luck would have it the pattern for me works for Rachele in the short version...and she only needs one panel instead of two!!! I also have a new blanket for Rachele as she has almost out grown her "cake-cake" blanket from when she was about 18 months old!!! Kenny is getting a new buzz blanket and a buzz bag....should be fun!!! I hope that it lasts for a bit so I can get all my ideas done!!

Plus on our Railroad trip I seen some very cool ideas for other crafts...maybe I can do some of those too! But on those I need Lee's a few metal some tin and of course I need to get Lee to agree to a new craft that I may not get to do....but I have given it a lot of thought and could use many of my other crafts with the new one...I'll keep you posted!!!

10 Years!!!

Today is Lee and I's (is that right...oh well) 10 year anniversary (our temple one is coming up on five years). Over the past ten years we have been through a lot.

Buying a house
Losing a house
Having kids
Losing a child (still gets to me some days)
Him paying for a child he never sees
Losing loved ones
Medical issues
Joining the church
But most of all staying in love with each other....

I look forward to 10 more years with the love of my life.

Happy anniversary Lee!!! I love you!!
