When it comes to my kids...

I'd do anything for them.

The other day I was talking to our friend who has twins. We talked about the risk involved and we talked about her son. He has epilepsy and has been on so many medications over the years. Right now he's seeing specialists all over and they've decided to keep him on his current meds.

The hard part is for him. Socially he sometimes has a hard time in school. He's had his seizures at school and it scares the other kids.

I've read up on Topamax class action lawsuit and I have to say that if a medication had an effect on my child the way that it has on so many I would be the first one to find a good attorney.

But no matter how much compensation you might never replaces having a healthy child.


There's so much rain outside. Margot had planned on spending this weekend doing deck stuff. YEsterday she poured the concrete foundations for the deck. Today it looks like it's going to be raining on and off for the rest of the day. I think this evening is suppose ot have half an inch of rain hit.

WHat happened to the sunny springtime??


Well, I'm almost 7 weeks. I've only puked once and felt sick quite a few times. My belly has popped out.

Tuesday we go in for another ultrasound. At this point it's still hard to think that there are three babies that are growing.

I did the consult with the genetic counselor this week. It provided some clarity and we're going to go ahead and go through with the procedure to reduce two of the babies.

With my heart condition there's no way that I can carry triplets to term.

I'm so sad about it all...but I want and need a healthy baby in the end.

Beauty school...


Of course, that is not my style. To drop out...that is.

One of my friends is a Cosmetologist and I am constantly amazed at how well she does financially! She also works as an airline attendant for American Airlines. When she doesn't have assignments she goes right back to her Cosmetology background and ALWAYS has a job waiting for her!

I think she might have gone to Springfield beauty school, where she was raised.

These days I have been looking at going back to work. I wrestled with the idea of doing real estate and getting my license but maybe I should look for a back up plan in case that does not work. offers Cosmetology school in many different areas and they are an industry leader.

Big wheels...

keep on turning.

I think I might buy truck gps because I've heard that they'r much better than the gps products that are out there.

OUr GPS is SO slow. It takes 10 minutes to find a satelight and typically you have to wait around for it to even figure out where you are.

Then there's the whole thing with big cities. The second we get near a big building it goes wonky and acts lost!

I think it's time for a new purchase!!


I'm pretty drained emotionally.

We found out there are triplets. All three embryos we put back stuck. To say the least...we're absolutely shocked.

Wish I could write more....

No more mowing for me!

We have a riding mower and over the years it's been incredible. This is the first summer that I won't be able to use it since I'm pregnant and figure it might just be too much wiggling.

I've been eyeing the honda mowers for awhile and my parents always had Honda mowers. I remember they never broke down and were always reliable!

Of course, I should just save my money because we also need to get a weedeater too!

We're having another baby...

or two.

It worked.

What was going to be our one and only attempt at having another baby worked. The numbers are great and we go in next Tuesday to find out how many bambinos have taken up residence.

I'm excited.

And tired.
