Dropping!

So my big appointment is 2/28. I'm going back to the doctor to try and get pregnant. There. I said it.

Now I've been trying to lose weight. I really want to be down to the weight that I was when I got pregnant with Emmy. I'm only trying twice and if it doesn't work - it doesn't work and we move on.

However, I figure if I lose weight then I'll have the best of both worlds because I'll look good in a swimsuit for the summer and I'll be healthier!

Tomorrow.

Tomorrow is my day home with Emm. We don't have big plans. I think she has OT in the morning and then we're doing lunch home, and when Emmy's asleep I plan on working on the house.

We're going to L&L's parent's house for dinner. They're doing baked potato night. YUMMY.

I'm pretty packed Wednesday with work and I'm going to the next county to finish up reports. HOpefully, I'll be back in town by pick up.

Zits? Why me?

My face has been breaking out terrible lately. It seems like when it's that time of the month I get the worst acne ever. I wish I knew how to get rid of blackheads because my nose is infested!

Even when I do not have a big outbreak I always have blackheads on my nose. I wash my face daily with cleanser and I think it cuts down on the oil but I am not sure it's touching the zits.

You'd think I was 12 with this skin!

Home.

Today was much busier than I thought it would be. I dropped off the girls and then I went to Home Depot to get some electrical outlets. Then I went over to my friend's house. She has triplet babies and I helped her with a feeding or two!

Then I went to work - one job. Came home and did computer work and by the time I was done it was time to pick up Graem.

Then we went to pick up our new light and came home for piano lessons. The teacher was great and I think Graem really is going to enjoy lessons.

Gold!

my best friends!

One thing that never loses it’s value is to buy gold coins! I love the new American Gold Eagle Coins too.

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 with her tax refund money!

United States 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.

From one to another...

It's pretty fun passing on toys from Graem to Emmy. I'm going to try and fix the Leap Frog and ipod shuffle for Emmy. I figure if I give her some good entertainment for the ride Tuesday I might be able to buy myself some peaceful time driving and won't have to listen to "Single Wady" 500 times.

Here's hoping...

The drive.

This weekend we're going to try to clean out the cars. We have a big ass car ride ahead for us when we head to North Carolina Tuesday! I don't know what to think of a 12 hour ride with two kids. I'm sure by the third hour and half way out of NY I will want to go home and sleep in my own bed!

Night night.

Lately, I've been able to go to sleep pretty easily. But that's because I've been so tired. Most times I toss and turn and have to watch television before going to bed.

At one point I was on a sleep aid that really helped but I stopped it after a month because I was afraid of getting hooked!

Desperate times call for desperate measures though and there is absolutely NOTHING worse than not sleeping.

At least I know that the meds work and if I need help I can always go to the doctor and get more!

8:56pm.

Did I mention that it's 8:56pm and we're still waiting for the plumber that's cancelled on us twice? I have faith in the guy because he's super nice.

I just wish he were more reliable and we weren't coming upon a holiday where we are leaving out of town!

The sump pump stopped working and so the best thing to do is to buy a new pump and replace all of the piping going out of the house.

OKAY>..the real reason why I put up with this shit?? The guy is cheap. And I'm a cheap bastard.

What ever you do...

don't click here.

Seriously. You don't want to see what's behind that link.

I know you think it's probably good stuff and since I am full of knowledge you probably think I have something great to pass along.

Maybe you are right. Maybe the click above tells all of my deep dark secrets. Or maybe it takes you to an addictive website that you'll waste way too much time on.

I dare you...

Greys.

Feeling good. Friday night. Weekend hasn't started and I'm watching good television with the kids sleeping.

Did I mention I have a fire crackling and I'm on my comfy couch with my soft blanket?

HEAVEN.

My new best friends are...

gold and silver!

I think it might be a good time to buy 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!

WEEKEND!

Work.Sickkid.DayOff.Work.

It's been crazy this week. However, I'm glad work is slow and I was able to take a sick day with Graem and have fun with Emm Tues and Thurs.

Now for a great weekend of wine club, car cleaning, and bouncehouse awaits.

Another bathroom remodel?

We just finished the master bedroom remodel and it looks incredible. At some point we're going to start up the kitchen remodel and I think we're probably going to go with undermount sinks. They looks so clean and with granite counter tops it's just the look we want!


The undermount sink I want is a 70/30. Which means that it offers a bigger side and a smaller side. The one I want costs around $400. EEK. I was able to find one on mrdirectint.com for around $100 though!

Now we just have to save the $10,000 or so it's going to take to be able to afford the kitchen remodel!

TO heat?

We're trying to figure out if we're going to get a new furnace. Our existing furnace works but it's 60 years old AND we're afraid it's going to break and we're not going to be able to get some of the great tax credits and rebates that are currently available.

SOoooooooooooo...I think we're going for it. I have to talk to the wife of the heater guy and make sure that they can at least make sure that the heat works in the playroom. It's friggin' freezing in there now!

Oh brother! Toner?

In my job I am contracted per job. The amount I am paid is dependant on the actual job ordered. The expenses sometimes are quite a bit. I have to pay for toner, paper, gas, cell phone, and my home office. What’s really been killing me is the cost of printer toner! Each one of the cartridges costs around $45.00 and I go through a color and a black cartridge ever month and a half.

The job is perfect because I really get to work on my own schedule and when the kids are out of school I get to spend time with them and make up my time on the weekend. Plus, I can do reports in the evenings when they are tucked in bed and sleeping.

I’ve thought about switching printers to find something that might print faster but I actually priced it out and it makes sense to keep my old printer because it averages around 1,000 sheets per cartridge. WHereas, the other printers do half of that amount and the toner costs a fortune. Plus, I really don’t need a high quality printer for these basic reports.

Brother toner seems to be discounted pretty good and was one of my options. In fact, the-toner.com has an awesome website that has just about every toner out there - at a fraction of the cost!! They have printer and fax cartridges too!

Since I go through so much toner I am glad that I came across a website that offers great prices and free shipping on orders over $50!

Most of their prices are up to 15% off. I looked at my HP cartridges and they are about $10 cheaper PER cartridge!

Now, if I could just figure out how to get a better deal on gas and my phone bill I would be in really good shape!

Hell's Kitchen!

I've been out of the loop for a few weeks but I was so relieved to see that I had actually been taping them this whole time. Now I get to sit in front of the tube, blog, and watch my show.

Hells yes.

I love

gold and diamonds!

All work - no play.

This weekend was a waste for me. I feel like I pissed it away working. I had to work because I was so far behind and I felt like in order to at least catch up I needed to put in my time.

Now it's Sunday afternoon and I feel like I haven't done a thing!

Darn.

Smasher city.

So at some point I really have to potty train Emmy. Her craps are monsterous and disgusting! Then there's the pee pee diapers that start to leak out and contaminate the whole house.

The kid is so stubborn so I've tried to go with the flow and not push too much...but damn...2 1/2 years old? REALLY?
