Medical Needs

I need to get my oldest into the doctor to have a look at his spine. Before we lost our medicare insurance he was diagnosed with Scoliosis. We took him to a chiropractor to try to get him straight...long story short (and expensive) we got nuthin'!! So now that he is fully insured again, we need to start looking at just what the problem might be and how to correct it for him. I keep hoping to get it started before his growth spurt I better act soon!

Vay-Cay Or Stay??

Have you started making your summer plans? I know, it's nearing the end of June...but we are still trying to work ours out. Do we take a vacation with the family to somewhere fun for the kids? Or do we drop them off and head to a Hilton Head rental for some "Marriage Therapy" time? I'm happy either way! I don't know why. A vacation of any sort means more of my time will be required. Laundry to go--house to clean before we leave---laundry to do when we get's a never ending cycle! How about we just stay home, and spend the money we would have spent on a maid service once a week??? Sounds positively heavenly to me!!

My Scrapbook Goal In Life

If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you are probably well aware of what I would love to have for my living room. I have four kids and my goal is to have a digital frame for each of them. Each one going in chronological order showing my kids growing up before my eyes (kinda sad to think about it that way). But since I don't keep up very well with my scrapbooking, this would be a great way for them to get to see their lives in pictures! As of yesterday...I'm halfway there! My husband surprised me with frame number 2 yesterday evening. No reason. No special event. Nothing! He was just out at the office supply store for work and saw one on the shelf and thought of me. What a sweetheart!!

Foodie Fest '08

My husband's hotel is playing home base to a big convention coming to town for the food industry. My brother in law will be coming, in a work related capacity. But my sister is just coming to collect the goodies. You know promotional pens, t shirts, food samples! She's talked me into going with her, but since there are no strollers allowed, I will have to sit this one out. I hope she brings me a present from one of the booths---and enters me into the drawing for the wheat grinder...that's what I'm hoping for!

Livin' Large In Reno

My brother in law has been living in Reno for the past 18 months. He's had a lot of trouble in his life with drug abuse and addiction as well as being bipolar and manic depressive--the poor thing. Well this week he finally is moving back into an apartment of his own. He's been living in a variety of reno hotels after losing his last apartment due to not paying his rent. He still hasn't found the help he needs to conquer his demons, so I'm not to hopeful about this newest part of his life---but I really do wish him all the best!
