Feeling used?

Lately, I've really been trying to find things that I can recycle or buy used. For example, today I went to the kid's resale shop to purchase clothes for the kids. I got some great deals on clothes that were barely used.

Just the other day my dad was talking about how he likes to purchase used cisco for his office. He can get a great deal and many times the only reason why they are available is because the company is upgrading to a newer model.

15 days old!

Today I took Emmy to my old work and showed her to the staff. One of the residents was dying to hold a baby and so I let her hold Emmy for a few minutes. It was precious and I must say that I really miss having older people in my life.

In fact, the lady who was holding her (Ruth) mentioned how her mother's name was Emmy. So holding a baby named Emmy must have been super special.

Maybe I can figure out a way to volunteer at the senior citizen's council or the assisted living place when Emmy gets older.

Not so tired.

Right now.

We actually have slept pretty good the past few nights and the thing that I'm starting to realize is that I just have to pace myself and try to do my best to sleep when the baby sleeps.

Of course, that's easier said than done and I have a pretty hard time going to sleep in the middle of the day.

We're giving up on WIndows.

At least that what Margot says each time our computer craps out. She's looking at getting a Linux machine to run email and a web browser on. We figure that since that's what we mostly do on a computer there's no need to put up with Windows Vista.

We might even consider getting a Linksys router at some point so that we can go wireless!

It's that time...

for me to lose weight.

I'm already down almost 30 pounds from my pregnancy weight. Of course, 15 or so were directly from the baby and I'm guessing that the other 15 was water weight.

While I'm nursing I won't be able to start on a diet pill that works.

Before when I weighed a lot I was on diet pills and they really helped me lose the weight. In fact, it was just the little jumpstart that I needed in order to lose a total of 75 pounds!

I can't wait...

til I'm eligible for medicare insurance and social security. Of course, by the time I'm eligible there will be no money in the budget and I'll be slumming it on the street.

Maybe the whole thought is to have more kids so that they can all pay for me to have healthcare and put me into a nice assisted living?

What's the point?

The last time we were at Margot's dad's house we watched a lot of television. The one thing I couldn't figure out was how to get the closed captioning turned off of the television.

Margot's dad has it on because he's hard of hearing and so he likes to read the script.

Of course, it's hard for me because he has this beautiful television with great bose speakers set up and all you can see is the bright green writing at the bottom of the screen!

Take me away!

Before Alex and Dom left to go back home we decided that we should meet up again in the next six months.

The one place that we agreed on was the Virgin Islands! We thought that it would probably make sense for us to rent through St. John villa rentals!

We've all heard of the great villas they have and it just makes sense when you're going with a group of people including a family of four with two small kids!

Good times!

It was so much fun to have the boys visiting last week. I really do wish they had more time to spend though. Of course, I know we could always visit them too!

Alex was studying for his pharmaceutical job and this week he's going to be in Atlanta. They have a two week training seminar full of testing and hard core studying that they make all drug reps undergo.

I'm sure while he's there he'll check out the jobs in Atlanta!
