There is something magical about getting soil under your fingernails and eating the fruit of your harvest.  Last year I was to concerned with having a baby to worry about a decent sized garden but this year, oh this year, the vegetables are going to fly.

We’ve got bell pepper seedlings that are about an inch tall.  We transplanted them from the egg crates to a big plastic container.  Tomato seeds went into the egg crates so we’ll see how long it takes for them to poke out of the soil.

We’ve decided to do raised box beds to make like easier.  We need to get the materials gathered for that so that after it warms up we can get started with the construction.  I hope to be outside a whole lot this spring and summer.

Nothing much to update

March 1, 2009 at 11:26 pm (Day to Day life) (, )

We’ve just been cleaning and getting the house ready for Spring.   It’s been a little crazy because my mom is out of town in NC.  She’s visiting her sister who has terminal lung cancer.

My dad’s sisters have been watching the baby while she’s out of town.  So the schedule has been a bit odd.  The baby has been a tad sick the last few days.  I’m going to call the peds office tomorrow to see when they can get him in.  I’m going to have them run a lead test just in case.

That’s it in a nutshell.

J and I have been finding nails in the living room on the carpet.  It’s so odd because I’ve vacuumned in there twice since we’ve had work done to the house.  I asked a very knowledgable friend about it and she thinks that the message we’re supposed to get out of it is that we need to work on getting the house and our marriage back on the right track.  Making the living room a positive place for us to be and to be able to work on what makes our relationship thrive.  It makes so much sense to me.  We are at a crossroads and this is the perfect omen or message for us.  We have the tools or we are going to be presented with the tools to make everything more positive.  This will not only make J and I a happier couple but it will trickle down and make C a happier baby!

Thanks girlie.  I know you know who you are!

Do I love me the way I am…

February 18, 2009 at 10:39 am (Beauty, Emotions, Love) (, , , , )

People, most often women, tell others that they should love themselves the way they are.  In theory this is great but there is just one little thing I don’t understand.  Why, if we are supposed to love ourselves they way we are, do people dye their hair, get eyebrow waxes, get facials, ect.

Those are beauty modifications, they change the way I look.  Am I supposed to love the natural me, or the modified me?

Dr Estepp (the clinic dr.) is going to call Dr. Samuels (the specialist) to see what labs need to be drawn next after the ANA. it’s a step in the right direction.

She also put me on Zoloft for my worsening depression.

Nothing new going on…

February 16, 2009 at 10:11 pm (Emotions, Health Care) (, )

I had to cancel my appt with the rheumatologist.  They want no less than $150 down front.  We don’t have it.  I go tomorrow back to the clinic.  We’ll see how that goes.

I had a very rough time today for a little while.  Off the deep end if you will.  It seems like everyday is harder than that last.  I hope it gets better soon.
