Maybe...just maybe.

We're going to be moving! We put an offer in on a house and we're waiting for them to counter. We'll see.

Either way the house has some carpets that I see need to be clean. I'm looking at options like the Ladybug vapor steam cleaner.

Having two kids I think it's important to have something on hand instead of going to Wegmans and renting a machine every few weeks!

Therapied out.

Well it appears that Emmy has some sensory stuff going on and so now she gets OT, PT, and a social worker! I believe in being aggressive about this and so we're meeting each therapist two times a week.

So far I've just been setting up appointments and everyone's on break but I'm guessing that this is going to get tiring pretty fast!

We travel so much

that I've been thinking about getting roadside assistance.

Since both cars are getting a little bit older and one is out of warranty it really makes sense. I just realized that one tow can cost (easily) $85!

PLUS, you never know when living in upstate New York when you might need a tow out of this snow!

Gall Bladder

The other night I was in so much pain that at 2am I drove myself to the ER. There I was diagnosed with what appears to be Gall Bladder Disease or Gall Stones.

Tomorrow I go in for an ultrasound and they'll be able to tell me more.

I'm going to try and control it by diet - eat less fatty and spicy foods.

Boo hoo.

Merry Christmas to me?

Ready for Disney again!

We had such a great time at Disney when we went in October. We could have easily spent more time there and it was such an awesome experience for the kids.

I think next time we go we might look into the downtown disney hotels. They're so close to the parks and you can enjoy the restaurants and shops within a walks distance.

Plus, there's really no need to have a car if you're in the middle of all the action.

Just a few more days...

til Christmas!

Every day Graem asks how many more days and each time I tell her something different! I was able to get all of the presents wrapped and all of the presents that we're shipping out are gone!!

Now we just wait for Santa...

McFatty.

I know the new year is approaching and I feel like with each new year I try to commit to losing weight and end up another 10 pounds heavier the following year!

Maybe I should look at a weight loss austin!

My friend who lives in Austin lost 75 pounds at the local gym and women's work out center.

Festival of Lights

I can't believe that it's already that time of year when Graem's school does a Festival of Lights program.

Last year we went and couldn't even find Graem and sat so far back we had no idea that her class had even gone. Ooops.

Tomorrow we're going to be better parents and plan on getting there early so that we can have a good view of our kid!

DONE.

I think I'm almost finished with Christmas shopping. I bought most of the kid's stuff online and was able to get it on sale!

I have yet to find the perfect gift for Margot and I'm afraid that the clock is ticking...

So special.

I don't know where to begin other than saying...I'm tired. I'm frustrated. And I don't know what to do about Emmy.

She's having a super hard time with this sensory stuff that she's been "diagnosed" with and to top it off she has horrible allergies that's causing her to go crazy in pain.

Her therapy started this week and although I feel good about the care she's getting....I know it's going to be a long haul.

RV'ing cross country!

One of my friends mentioned that they were going to get an RV and head cross country this summer.

While the idea sounds awesome and I'd love to do it when the kids get older. I can hardly think about it with my children at this age!

I saw a motorhome for sale on the side of the road the other day and was wondering what the maintenance, motorhome insurance, and storage fees would add up to.

Tree shopping!

This afternoon we're going out to our local Christmas Tree Farm to buy a tree.

I must say this is one of my favorite activities of the season and I love finding the perfect tree.

PLUS...it's so much fun now with the kids.

It's really this time of year that makes me want to have three more babies.

Yikes. Did I just write that?

Feeling better.

Thank God we're feeling a little bit better after having a brutal cold for over a week. Emmy and I got hit with it the day before Thanksgiving and we were a wreck for the holidays and after!

The good thing about it was that we didn't overeat during the holidays and I was able to drop a few pounds.
