Happy St. Patrick's Day

Today has been nuts, two physical therapy session, both in different directions and both quite a drive, pre-school and tonight dance class. I swear I've been spending more time in the car than at home. But at least she smiles through it all, so it makes it worth while.

Don't Get Mad...

Just Get Even or Turn off the cell phone you let them borrow over 5 months ago. I've realized over the last few months I have become extremly bitter over some extended family issues. This last week, weekend and today was the last draw. So just a few minutes ago, after 3 weeks of no contact and just having to relay messages through family members telling them they needed to get their own phone because they were costing me over $100 extra a month and refusing to help, I had my phone suspended. Maybe now we will finally be able to get on with our lives.

1st week of Pre-School

Well I had been meaning to post this sooner but it's just been one thing after another. K was suppose to start school on Monday but she was sick, so I took her to the doctor and he said wait another week (after the week we had already waited) and if she's not better I'll give her an antibiotic. Eeerrr!! It would have been different if I had ran in there the day after she started getting sick, I had already waited a week, she wasn't better, so don't you think you should treat her? So instead I get to call him tomorrow and say she isn't any better, now give me the freakin' prescription. So K's first day of pre-school was on Tuesday. I'm thankful that everyday they give a summary of what they did in class because whenever I ask K anything about school, she won't tell any of us anything about her school day. Which unlike I guess most Mom's I wasn't upset, weepy or anything at the thought of her going to pre-school, dropping her off or walking her to class. Instead it was the realization, that up until now I pretty much know everything that she did in her life. And unlike most children who want to tell you everything when you pick them up from class, K isn't going to be that way, so I will never know anything more that what is on the summary hanging up outside the classroom. Which that is what makes me sad.

Happy Birthday Baby Girl

Today is my Baby Girl's 3 rd Birthday, it's hard to believe that she's 3 and that we have been a family now for 2 1/2 years. Since last Saturday was her Birthday party, we have spent a low key today at home. Her Uncle called and sang Happy Birthday to her and so did Great-Great and YeYe. Her Godmother has emailed K at least 3 times now. K opened up presents right after breakfast this morning. And what a breakfast K ate, she had 3 eggs, 3 donut holes and a glass of milk, I couldn't believe how much she ate. I'm about to order Birthday dinner, K decided that she wanted to eat out, so we convinced her since the weather is bad that we would order out and bring it home to eat. So she's super excited about the idea. So Happy 3rd Birthday Baby Girl, Momma loves you so very much!

It's been awhile

Well things here are down right nuts. We celebrated K's 3rd Birthday last Saturday even though her birthday isn't until this Saturday the 28th. For her real birthday we are just planning a small family celebration like we have done in years past. We have been busy with dance classes, getting ready for pre-school, and a new brace from Shriner's. I was layed-off again at the beginning of February and am still upset about the whole thing. I have a job interview tomorrow so keeping my fingers crossed, I've been on 3 job interviews in the last 2 weeks and so far nothing. Otherwise extended family issues have taken up alot of time up in our life but I'm ready to cut the last remaining strings that are connecting me to the issue and just get back to my life and it's constant roller coaster. K is the closest one to the teacher and the only one with dark hair of course

We're In

Whoo Hoo!! Thank goodness the interview is over. My sweet daughter, who is usually calm, sweet and polite decided to have a bad day today. The downside it got even worse during the interview for Pre-school . I know that she was just overly tired because she decided to wake up at 4am asking for breakfast and when I told her it was too early for breakfast she wanted dinner. So needless to say that by the time the interview rolled around she had already been up for 6 hours, had our exit meeting this morning with our Service coordinator for Physical therapy and she also had her Physical therapy session. Luckily the Interviewer took it all in stide and my sweet Daughter got into the highly private, very elite, very expensive, way out of my budget, excellent educational and overally amazing Pre-School. She gets to start school on March 2nd and we are just so freakin' excited!!

Well I couldn't think of a better titled post than this because that is why I'm upstairs right now pouring over K's closet trying to find another "right" outfit for her pre-school interview tomorrow. I totally freaked out when I discovered on the "right" outfit there was this big ole' stain on the front which you just can't have. I mean really nicely dressed with this big ole' yellow stain on the front, I don't think so. So I'm down to two more "right" outfits. Still not happy with either of them but nothing I can do now because I already tired getting the stain out and it's not coming out without a fight or a good soakin in some oxi-clean. So now just to narrow down my choice of outfit and then make sure it stays clean till 10am tomorrow morning. I really just don't know how I'm going to get any sleep at all.
