Will you marry me?

It's been ages since we've talked about getting married. I know I should probably make an honest woman out of Margot but at this point I am not sure either of us see much benefit in it.

However, it would be worth it just to see Margot in a white and frilly dress!

I'd also like to think of a time when we could head out of town to a destination weddings at Karisma Hotels!

They offer amazing wedding settings where you can have a private wedding on a beach and eat some of the best first-class cuisine in the world.

Hidden Beach Resort in Riviera Maya offers a full service, all inclusive, nudist resort.

The good thing about getting married at the nudist resort is that at least we wouldn't have to worry about wedding attire and we'd get to pack light.

Snow, snow, go away....

come again - NEVER.

I think I'm ready to move somewhere tropical. We're on day two of constant snow. Day TWO of kids at home and mama's about to go CRAZY!!!

Thank God Margot's going to be home tomorrow and Sunday she even said she'd take them out. Maybe I'll have time to sit in a vegetative state and rock in the corner.

Ass breath.

I just ate a sandwich with onion and my breath smells like total ass. SEriously.

We used the same onion last night for hamburgers and that thing is strong.

Maybe I'll go down and brush my teeth before I pass out.

Are you covered?

Since we're moving to a bigger house it means that god-forbid something happens to Margot I've got to come up with the money to pay for the mortgage.

Considering I don't have a job and we're not independently wealthy I am glad that we've thought it through and decided to invest in life insurance.

Of course, I think we probably need to get another policy to cover the more expensive house and two kids!

Snow, snow and more snow!

Today we're stuck inside for a SNOW DAY!

I knew it was coming and people have been talking about it for a few days now. It's suppose to "sit and spin" once it hits our area.

I'm guessing we have around 4 inches out now and I just plowed the driveway.

I also took it upon myself to plow my neighbors driveway.

Damn, I'm a good person. Maybe I'll get some heaven points.

Ugh. Infection.

I went back to my doctor today for a check up on my belly. It's still disgusting, however, i was glad that I was able go et an appointment with the doctor that actually did the surgery.

He thinks it's a skin infection but he really looked stumped. I can't imagine he has never seen this before, right??

Anyway, I'm getting tired of seeping out my belly button and going through tons of gauze pads, bandaids, and qtips! Not to mention, the second I step out of the tub I have the drippies from my wound.

He gave me some heavy duty antibiotics 825mgs of Augmentin. I think that would just about kill any infection!

twine tastes so good cats ask for it by name

That's all I have to say about that.

Gold is a girl's best friend.

One thing that never loses it’s value is gold bullion! Even when our stocks are floundering you can always look to silver, gold, and precious metals to maintain their value. Our friend, L, has had gold bullion in her portfolio for the past few years and we constantly compare. Despite the crashing economy - she's always in the black!

I'm sure she's looking to buy gold bullion with her tax refund money!

US Gold Bureau offers silver, gold, and other precious metals for delivery or they will make arrangements to have your metals stored privately and securely at a bank or depository.

I didn’t realize this but US Gold Bureau is an industry leader. They sell gold in two forms: coin or ingot. The world demand now exceeds the supply demand for gold - which makes it a pretty smart investment.

Baby stuff is almost gone!

Well, I didn't think I could do it but the move has made it much easier.

I got rid of my baby stuff.

I must say that it's been a bit of a relief. Not matter how much I think about it...I'm tired. I loved being pregnant so much but I'm not sure I could take care of another baby. Especially if it was a high needs baby like Emmy.

Don't get me wrong...I love Emmy to death and she's so damn funny but she's a hard nut to crack! My friend, L, swears that I would have a different kid - but I just don't think I can take my chances.

Maybe I'll find some gay guys who will let me carry their baby! That way I can be pregnant and not have to deal with the baby!

Baby down.

It was a rough day today.

I got frustrated.

I'm sick.

Ugh...this motherhood thing is so much harder than I ever thought it'd be.

Emmy has been sick for a while now and she's on antibiotics for double earaches and an upper respiratory infection. She gets so mad for no reason and then she's unable to communicate so she instantly falls to the ground and starts kicking the floor.

The good thing is that the therapists have been here over the past few days and been able to see the behavior. They've been able to give me some tips to handle it when it happens.

Looking younger?

Since having a birthday I've been feeling a little bit older! I've realized that my body's getting older and the other day when I purchased beer at the grocery store I didn't even get carded!

I've looked at some youthology reports and think it's pretty amusing.

I realize the need to take better care of myself and my body but I'm not sure I'm going to go out of my way to look younger!

HGTV

Seriously addicted.

I can't stop watching Property Virgins and House Hunters. Seriously. I watch it 24/7 and I even went through a stage of denial.

Now I think I'm ready to admit my addiction and deal with it.

Vitamins!

My kids love their vitamins. Each night when they're in the tub we pass out their vitamins and they think they're candy!

These days they have vitamins for men, vitamins for women, vitamins for seniors, and vitamins for teens!

I think it's important for all of these different groups to have different vitamins because each group needs different things in a multi-vitamin.

USA Hockey

The other day we watched USA vs China Hockey and USA kicked some major ass. It was a great game. Tonight we're watching USA vs Russia and they're at it again. The score is 13 to 0. USA's winning!

There's no doubt in my mind that USA's going to win the gold!

Diet pills

Years ago I dieted. I lost a lot of weight and after losing 75 pounds I was able to get pregnant with Emmy.

I used fat blockers and diet pills with ephedra. The combination of the two worked great for me. The ephedra gave me energy and really helped with suppressing my appetite. The fat blocker helped reduce the fat intake I did have.

This time around I'm really trying to lose the weight naturally by better diet and exercise. But it's so hard! I wish I had more time and better controL!

I *heart* my washing machine.

Most of you know how much I love my washing machine. It gets out the deepest stains and makes our clothes smell so good.

So it might come to a surprise to you to know that I've sold it.

I was able to get a brand new washing machine $899 for a mere $200 during the rebate program offered through NYS and Maytag. Then I was able to sell our old machine to the people that are buying our house for $300.

Margot's results.

I wrote a few weeks ago about how Margot went for her physical and she had all of the testing done. Her cholesterol came back high and so her doctor ended up putting her on Lipitor.

Of course, we're looking at all types of cholesterol treatment. Including a change in diet and exercise.

When things calm down with the house and work we plan on getting gym memberships and taking the much needed time to get the workout that we need.

We've got to start taking better care of our bodies. They need to last us a long, long time!

The Olympics!

Each night I lie on the couch with my little girl and watch the Olympics! Most of the time Graem's attention span only lasts minutes - but I love it.

I love sports and miss that aspect in my life. The other night I saw the USA hockey game and watched them spank China.

It was a great moment to be able to explain to Graem what was going on and when the USA scored she started chanting "USA USA USA".

That's my girl!

Eating better.

We've been trying to take better care of ourselves lately. The whole gall bladder scare and then Margot's escalated blood sugar has really raised awareness. Not to mention, we are getting younger. And we have two little girls who need their mothers to live a very long time!

I did some research and discovered that CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) helps fight cancer, burn fat, and acts as an anti-oxidant.

I need all of the help I can get!

The new house!

It looks like we might be moving into our new house around March 5th or so. Or at least that's the goal. We still have to get the bank on board and then we have to make sure that the buyers of our house can do closing around then too.

Of course, that's a best case scenario and I feel like things are just lingering right now. We've done everything there is to do and now it's up to the bank and the attorneys to iron out.

We have a list a mile long that we want to do to the house ... I just wish we had more money!

Back and forth!

Since my gall bladder surgery my weight has gone up and down. It went down after the surgery because I just wasn't eating. I was scared! Then I realized that I could eat and it would be alright and I started to gain a little bit of weight.

I'm not just looking for quick weight loss diets because it seems like every time I lose weight fast I gain it right back.

I need to start eating better and once I'm healed from the surgery I really do want to get a membership to the gym.

Maybe I'll get better?

I went to the doctor yesterday and he said that my belly is looking better and he thinks that the antibiotics are doing the trick. I still don't know...

I'm having tons of yellow/brown stuff come out of my belly button and it hurts like mad when I'm not taking my narcotics.

I have another appointment Thursday and I hope that the wound will have healed up, no more yucky stuff coming out, and my other three wounds will have cleared up too.

Happy Valentine's Day!

A few days late.

Oops!

Margot and Graem got me flowers a few days before Valentine's Day and we were all so sick and on the couch that we didn't do anything for the special occasion.

Of course, now I need to find gifts for her! I might be able to pick off a candy heart 75% at CVS - but after we move in our new house I really would like to get Margot something special.

Maybe for our fifteenth anniversary we'll do something special - or who knows - maybe we'll even get married?!

Snow Penis!

The other day I was driving around the CU campus trying to get Emmy to sleep. I drove past the sororities and saw this snow penis. Of course, I had to pull over and take a shot of the biggest penis I've ever seen!

A warm heart...

Tonight I watched the news and it was so depressing. There's so much pain, hatred, and sadness that looms in our world.

Of course, that's what media feeds on and it makes "good news".

It always warms my heart when I see a story like richard willich.

Richard Willich donated $100,000 to his local elementary school for teaching technology.

It makes me realize that there are good people out there who value our education system and tomorrow's future.

Is it bedtime yet?

It's been one hell of a day.

Emmy's been so horrible. I feel like nothing I can do makes her feel better. She's still sick. She's on antibiotics and it seems like everytime something happens it's magnified by 1 billion and she throws a terrible temper tantrum.

I'm hoping this isn't terrible twos starting early.

I'm screwed.

Yikes.

Lately, I've been feeling the joints in my fingers seize up. I know my mother has grandparents and parents have rheumatoid arthritis and so I'm guessing that it's hereditary.

However, I'm only 33 and it seems to be starting pretty early. Ugh. I figure I'll try to deal with it and treat my body better with diet and exercise.

We got it!

We got the house on Kay St. and we're so damn excited! We were able to negotiate the price quite a bit and in the end we got the house that was listed at $219,900 for $195,000.

Not too shabby.

Now we just have to do the non-fun stuff - roof, siding and we're on to fun stuff like the kitchen, bathrooms, and inside painting.

I'm so damn excited.

And scared!
