catch up time - worth the read ;)

Todd just got hired on with a company in Orem to do computer programing. He's very happy to be getting paid what he's worth and not having to deal with BYU's messed up CS department. (Long story). He starts at the end of June and will work full-time and go to school part-time year-round.

So "potty training", yeah. Well every time N is straining to fill her diaper with stinky-ness, he was lifting her up and carrying her to the bathroom which she must have found to be a scary experience because she'd cry and run to me. So needless to say I've discouraged that a bit and now we just talk to her as if prepping and telling her what to call the toilet. To be honest, I'll be the one home and teaching her. Lets not traumatize her.

I've been making felt food like a fool. I'll have pictures and a post for this when we get back home from vacation.

And our vacation trip will be another post.

I had an order on my Etsy shop! The only problem was I left the bag that had my shop merchandise in it on my desk back at home. Great, so I'm having them shipped to me, and till then I've sent some complementary bows as an apology for my brain-fart. I've since put my shop on vacation mode so that I dont get any more orders till I get home.

N got VERY sick the day we arrived at my parents. She woke up crying and as I pulled her from her crib she threw upon me. She did so about 5 times that morning and refused to eat and drink, which is nerve recking enough, but she was running a high temp. We set up an appointment with Urgent Care here, and were seen by a doctor my mom has worked with some. We got there and N was running a 103.9 degree temp. She was soaking her clothes. Thwy drew blood and needed a urine sample. I can deal with blood being drawn but the catheter was breaking me. For her to be so miserable and then for the tests, I wanted to cry. She slepted well that night after her temp dropped to 100 degrees, and woke with major munchies. Thank heavens! I'm glad mom with me to Urgernt Care for the 4 hours we were there. And a special thanks to Todd and Mari who helped cleanup vomit that morning.

I hit my 12 week mark today, yeah for finishing the first trimester! Due December 11th, we're so EXCITED!!!

yeah yeah

I know, I know I haven't posted anything for almost a month, give me a day and I'll fill you in. It's not that nothing has happened, things have happened, I've just been slacking.

Why I'm (still) a Mormon

I don't expect much more to ever be posted on this blog, and I'm largely just posting this to share it with some particular friends....
