My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Say What?!?
In case anyone out there was wondering why the US Post Office is not doing well and has to keep increasing the cost of postage, I thought I'd show you just how inefficient they are.

On Monday, April 23rd, I ordered a couple things from The Children's Place. Now, I know where their warehouse is. It's around Edison, NJ, which is apx 60 miles from my house (give or take) and I also am in NJ. So, you figure it should take a day, maybe 2 TOPS to get to my house through regular mail. Right? WRONG! Here is a the tracking information that is on-line for this package...

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't it say it was accepted this morning in New Berlin, WI - as in WISCONSIN?!?

I guess I won't be seeing that package anytime soon.

Not much else going on here. It's a miserable, stormy and rainy day. Had to drag them out in the rain for gymnastics this morning. That went amazingly well considering that both girls match the weather - miserable and cranky. :) At least they have their bath to look forward to later.

And no - I have not heard back from Verizon. Why would they fix something that's a danger, not to mention a liability for them. I still have to call them back, but I have not been in the mood. And since J secured the lid with 4 heavy duty deck screws, I know it's not a danger for them any longer.

I actually have to start their dinner. I'm just not in the mood - I wish it could be a lazy day for me today, but no such luck.
