Baby Items Checklist

I am now 30 weeks along. I can't believe Prince will be here in just about seven weeks or so.

I just went online and found a "baby items checklist." Here I thought I had almost everything for Prince, boy was I wrong. How can such a little person need so many things? Oh well, I am so excited he is coming, I can't wait to go shopping!!


I finally remembered my user name and password!!! I will have to start posting now:)

We're having a baby! Yes, you heard right. This in number four and we couldn't be more happier!

My due date is May 25. However, I think he/she will arrive on May 12. Anyone else want to guess a date?

I am feeling fabulous and getting a little bigger everyday. I guess now I have FOUR reasons I need to start blogging:)

Well, it has been over a year since I have posted anything. I don't know why I have picked today to do so because I don't have much to report. Life has been crazy with it's ups and downs. I just have to remember that things happen for a reason and everything will work out in the end.

When I have time - in a about a year - I will post pictures from our vacation. We had a BLAST in Chicago. I can't wait for me and Patrick to be able to go with out the kids sometime:)

Stay cool! I am so ready for the fall!

My alarm goes off each morning at 5:37 a.m. after I fit snooze a few times I roll out of bed and try to get ready before the kids wake up. I try to have the big kids at the table by 6:30 ready for breakfast. However, I never know what to feed them! So, I rely on the good ol' sugary pop tarts and sugary cereals.

I am at the point where I am reaching out to my friends for breakfast suggestions. What do you feed your kids for breakfast?

I went shopping at the Plaza way back in 1995 or 96 with my friend Mandy (at least I think it was her, it was a long time ago. Mandy let me know if you don’t remember this.) Anyway, we thought we were big shots because we were shopping at the Plaza. We went to Saks Fifth Avenue just for the fun of it. Well, I found this black wool blazer that I thought I just HAD to have. However, it cost a whopping $99 and I just didn’t have the money. The sales lady saw me looking at it and offered to open a credit card account for me. Who couldn’t pass up that deal!! So, I opened the account and the blazer is still in my closet 13-14 years later. What an investment.

What a Day/Night

I put the kids to bed about 20 minuets ago. Claire just came into the living room, for the second time, saying (she even had her fingers up in quotes) "can Truman and I play in bed for about 20 minutes? You know, he really needs to get his energy out!" This cracked me up!!!

In all honesty I have to give them a little break. Since we have been living in this house they have had to share not only a room but also a bed. They have been great sports through the last four months. And NO I did NOT let them "get their energy out."

Kind of on the same note... Jason and Jamie had a couple look at their house for a second time on Sunday. This couple has Jason's house in their "top two." By the end of the week this couple is too make their final decision. If Jason ends up selling his house that means we would have to move before our house is done. Where would we move??? Good question.

Way off the subject, I had a horrible day at work today. Why do adults have to act like children? I could go on and on but I really don't want to waist my energy on something like this. I would rather use my energy too pick chicken out of my teeth. Can you tell I just really need to be around my real friends. I can't wait to see Abby and Mandy next week!
