Facebook could change my life! LOL!


I just met up again with an old friend from HS...our friendship turned my Senior year because I was being a real you-know-what and thru the years I had come to really regret that! Had always wanted to contact her and tell her I was sorry. When I found her on FB, I immediately, with no hesitation, sent her a message telling her that I wanted to apologize. I personally wouldn't have blamed her for not even acknowledging that I had sent her a message!!! But she DID!!! I really hope to catch up with her more!!!!

I even found a girl that I was friends with in elementary school!!! I changed schools in the 6th grade, so it was fun to find someone from that far back!

So now I'm kinda obsessed! Thing is, the people I really wanna contact aren't on there! Phooey to them! LOL!

On the is here. She still has LOTS to move, but she has the essentials. It's nice having someone here who washes the dishes daily! LOL!

Pierson is a crazy little monkey...just this afternoon, he climbed the entire flight of steps from the basement up to the living room!! But the little booger won't walk! Go figure!

Oh! Here's my last two entries for the DT call...

I can post these now! LOL! The winners should be notified by the end of the week...I don't really think I have a chance, but it was fun, none-the-less!

Love playing with my camera!

Took these just a little while ago...a friend (thanks Michelle!) had commented that she never knew she could take B&W pics with her Rebel. I knew that I could, but hadn't really done that. I usually just converted them to b&W in Picasa. But I decided to take a few. These are some of my fav's...

I had to use what subject matter I had available! LOL! All the kiddos are gone right now! LOL!

Flu shots!

Took Pierson to the doc today for his 18 month well check...he's up to 25.1 lbs!!!! He's back on the growth chart for his age and doing well...except for the not walking thing. But doc didn't have a fit over that...said the same thing I did...he's lazy! Doesn't help that we pick him up whenever he wants us to! (BAD mommy!) So, while we were there, we got flu, Nevan, and Pierson. the only person left in the house who hasn't gotten one is H...and although it would be a lot of driving, I think I'll take him Monday after his dentist appt. HE'll still be doped on the valium from the dentist, so it should be a piece of cake for him! LOL!

My mom is moving in with us! YIKES! Could be good or bad...I'm hoping good! She's leaving her husband and has told him she wanted a divorce and would be out of the house as soon as she could find something she could afford...well all the low-income places seem to be full and there's no guarantee of when there might be an opening. So, we had told her in the beginning that if she needed a place to stay, she could come here. She kept saying no, but the other day I was talking to her on the phone and she was saying what a jerk the soon-to-be-ex was being and I told her again she could come here. Well, she took the bait! After I got off the phone I was like, "Oh MY GOD! What have I done?!?!?!?!" But DH is fine with it and I will be too. Just gonna have to lay out some rules and we should be okay. Besides, I'll have a built in baby sitter! DH and I might actually get to have a date more often than our anniversary!

Gotta go get some boys in the bed!

Life in general...

Pierson has finally decided that he remembered he could stand on his own!!! LOL! Started doing it again Saturday evening and now I can tell him to stand up and he usually will! Amazing to me that he knows what I'm asking him to do!!! And he will shake his head yes AND no now if you ask him a question! Where the heck is my baby going???? Just a few minutes ago, he stood up and then bent over to hold on to a large dump truck and started using it to help him walk across the floor! :( He goes to the doc on Friday for his 18 month check up...don't think he'll be walking by then, so not sure what the doc is gonna say about that. At least he IS showing some signs now!

Still battling fleas here...did I mention that? We have fleas in our house but no indoor pets! GRRRRRR! Last week, I vacuumed religiously EVERY day...even found some stuff to sprinkle on the carpet that was supposed to kill them. Well, I keep seeing one or two here and there. I really DON't want to bomb the house, but I may have to just suck it up and let Mark do it. At least after it's done, the house will be spotless...because I'll be going thru washing every surface I can find! And I'll shampoo the carpets, and mop the floors, and clean the tubs....I'll probably even wash windows and blinds! I hate insecticides/pesticides in my house!

Received the last sketch from yesterday...hope to work on it today sometime! It's a nice one!

WEll, that's all the rambling I've got for to vacuum some more!

Not a fun day!

BAsically, I had a flat and ended up at the tire store where I bought 2 new tires and paid to have the van aligned! Not exactly my idea of a fun morning!

Pierson cut his left eye tooth...

Been participating in a 4 week contest for a DT spot at's what I created for the first and second weeks...

I have week 3 done, just can't share it yet since the sketch doesn't go up on the site until next week!

Another tooth...

Pierson cut his lower left stomach tooth today...or at least I noticed it being thru the gum today! LOL! Only 3 more left until it's time for his next molars! Wow...can't believe teething is almost over for him...and that we won't have another child to go thru it with... :( Kinda sad. I guess I'll have to live vicariously through someone else! LOL!

Finally showing signs....

WEll, Pierson is 18 months and 3 days old...still not walking. It's had me freaked out for a couple of days, because H was 18 months and 1 day old when he the fact that Pierson has waited even know moms! LOL!

So, he did something today he has not done before! I had just changed his diaper and had put his pants back on him. He'd been crawling around the house on his hands and feet (instead of knees) and after I put his pants on, he got into that position and tried to stand up right there without holding on to anything! He tried twice and that's all I could get him to do...I sure hope he'll do it again afterwhile so DH can see it!!! I was soooo excited!!! LOL! Maybe there's hope for him yet!

My l'il pumpkins!

Went to the pumpkin patch that is set up at a local church...they sell pumpkins as a fundraiser every year and it's a great picture spot. Here's the best I could get of a very wiggly 18 month old and a surprisingly cooperative almost 4 yr old! LOL!
