I have been working at the office a lot lately. My co worker is a college student and he went home for 3 weeks so I have to cover the office. I found a nanny on craigslist (I have never been so spoiled) She comes to my house picks Gabe up from Preschool, takes the kids on outings, cook, and even CLEANS). It is just what my doctor should have ordered because me stress levels are at a climax.

We are almost at the end of a very long journey. My husband is about to graduate with his Master's this will happen around the 15th of December. I can't tell you how happy I am that he is going to be done. He already has a new job and is going to start on Dec. 1st. It is in Idaho Falls so he will be commuting. Our townhouse has depreciated about $2000 in the last year so it is not a good time to sale, so we will just stay here. We bought a Toyota Yaris for Mike to drive to work. It can get 40 mpg on the hwy.
Thanks for reading my blog, maybe I will get better once my husband starts working full time and I can cut back on my hours.

These top pictures I was modeling my sister in law's wedding dress. If anyone is interested in it let me know, we do have lots more pictures but I was just posting the one's that were really of me. She is going to post them on craig's list.
This is my wedding dress. It is also for sale. I couldn't believe that I actually fit into my wedding dress. Yeah!!!! Mine is also on craig's list.
OK isn't this just the cutest. My sister made this bow to look vintage to go with the dress. I love this outfit. I have another post to make of all of Lacey's pictures.

I still can hardly believe that she learned to pedal so young. I have to really keep an eye on her, because she has been know to take right off and ride down to the playground.
The D&C went well. I even went to work the next day. Physically it was not a big deal, and I think getting all of the hormones out of my body is helping my ezcema to get better.
I am doing much better, and promise to start blogging more positive blogs. I am back at the gym and I am determined to get back on a diet.

Also I got my first stitches today. My family doctor took a sample of my spots. I went there today and she called her dermatologist friend and he suggested that she take a sample of my skin. I am just full of unpleasant experiences lately.

The doctor did say that it was from nothing that I did it was either a bad sperm or a bad egg.

Well this is for all of you out there that haven't heard the news yet. This is also my excuse for not blogging so much. My bed is just more appealing now than the computer. Also it may explain all my mood swings (as via my last post).
Me and the kids on the second day of my class reunion.
My cutest little girl.

So we went to WIC 2 days ago and they made me feel guilty enough to finally take Lacey's bottle away. She has been using one to help her go to sleep. Anyway it has been just has hard as I thought it would be. She has been trying to fall asleep now for 3 hours. She didn't take a nap and she went to bed late last night because of the same issue so I thought for sure she would be so hammered that I could put her to bed at 7:00. Well it is almost 10:00 and I just heard a cry. Do I give up or keep trying?
So I have been working about 5-6 hours a day from home mostly, few hours here and there at the office. It becomes pretty much consuming because everytime I have a calm moment with the kids I am working. It doesn't leave me much time to enjoy my children or clean the house, or to even unwind. I haven't even watch any olympics or any TV for that matter in weeks.
I read all of these blogs of yours and I think I am not a very good mom. Maybe you guys are only posting the good stuff. It seems lately that It has only been hard stuff in my life. I could really use a vacation with my kids and husband, or at least a change. Mike isn't going to get as many hours this fall because grade school is starting and they past a law saying that you can't work with school age kids before school hours are out. Anyway I will be working more, but at least it will be at the office and Mike will be home with the kids thus actually giving me a brake. Maybe it won't be bad after all.

Anyway I got a kenaloge shot and more allergy medicine and steroid cream and they are finally going away. I am so glad :) I will never take my skin for granted again, and I will never be taking amoxicillian again either.
This shows some spots on my leg. The spots started out red but as they are healing more and more they are flaky more like eczema.

I am still at work. I volunteered to work full time at the office Monday and Tuesday because everyone is gone, thus the reason that my children are in Aberdeen. I am still at the office because i just keep working because I really don't have any reason to go home. It is a weird feeling for me to have no family responsibilities today.
My spots are slowly starting to heal, they have been an emotional drain on me.
I found a new song that I love "All I want is you" by Tristian Prettyman. Playlist doesn't have it or I would put it on my blog. But itunes does.

So we finally went camping this summer. We brought our enclosed 4 wheeler trailer and slept in it. It worked out really good. It was easy to take down camp when everything is in the trailer and ready to go. We went with my mom and dad and Kristin and her family and my brothers Kory and Shawn (and family) came up for a day. So we camped next to this climbing rock. My sister took this picture while I was off 4 Wheeling. I really like the picture.

I have been in Blackfoot since Saturday. I came down for a break from my busy life and I just keep staying longer and longer. I do plan on going home Tuesday afternoon, however. We went to the Ross Park swim park in Pocatello today. It was a lot of fun. Lacey and Gabe were like fish in the the water. Their cousins Elizabeth, Kason and Kash had a good time as well.

I wanted to share a few cute things that Gabe has said lately.
Mom.. "Grandpa's honey has a sister that looks just like her" Interpretation (Grandma Oldfield has a twin sister)
Mom.."Are we going to the boy's house that has circle hair like Lacey?"

Gabe and I went to see Kung Fu Panda at the theater last night as part of my birthday party. It was a really cute movie and funny too (even for adults). After that we meet up with Shane, Lacey, Shawn and Diane at the Thai restaurant. I was worried that the kids wouldn't eat anything but they actually ate better than if we were at McDonald's.
Today I made myself my favorite dishes: meatloaf, broccoli salad and brownies. We had our neighbors over for dinner. It was a nice time and the kids had a good time running all over the house.
Lacey gave me a nice present: Went to bed at 7:00
Gabe gabe me: A homemade card that he glued together and drew happy faces on it.
Shane (Mike) : gave me a clock radio that me ipod will plug into and play.
Mom: gave me a bag, which I love. (note: I can never have too many bags and purses)
Shawn and Diane: said that they have something for me but it is 9:48 and I haven't seen them yet. So it will have to be a mystery too all of you reading this.

Lacey and cousin Adele at Grandma's Birthday party dressed in a like shirts that my sister decorated.
Great grand kids that were at the 80th birthday party.
We went to storybook park after the party in Burley. It is a really neat park. I will put more pictures of it later.

Also if you didn't know I am way into Audible.com (thanks to my 2nd cousin Audrey Murdock Preston) Audible is audio books. I can listen to a book in about 3 days without disrupting my lifestyle at all. It is great. So my sister wanted me to read the book the 5 Languages of Love. I just finished it today, it is a really good book.....All married people or people about to get married need to read this book. It will change you marriage. I am so excited for my husband to listen to it to. Since he commutes to Montana once a week he should be able to listen to it in one day. Thanks Janel (my sister) for recommending it to me.
For those of you that have read the book. I think my love language is Quality Time.

Later today I realized the colperette of this disaster. I was also having some of these symptoms today and thought what did we eat. Well it wasn't that had to discover that Sunday evening Gabe was pretty hungry and I was in desperate need for a treat. So we both pigged out on Fiber one bars. I had 4 of them and Gabe had 2. So yes we overdosed on Fiber and got a good colin cleanse of out it.

No, not a yard sale...Just us trying to keep our stuff out of the sand. We did bring a sheet to sit on but the kids kept getting sand on it so I had to shake it out often.
My children are addicted to root beer milk and chocolate milk. I told Gabe earlier that we could ride our bikes to the playground......Later on he was whinnying for a root beer milk, I told him that if he had a rb milk we couldn't go to the playground on our bikes........Well a little later I find him behind the pantry door drinking a rb milk.......so I have to stick to my word and I and next time he asked about the bike ride I said "I am sorry you chose to drink the milk instead of go the going to the playground.".....Well it has been drama ever since and it still is...He is in his room crying and crying. I sure hope he will learn a lesson.

I got myself a new dress and my hair colored for mothers day. Check out my blonde hair. The kids made me some homemade cards and my husband got me a nice card. He loved my hair and gave me lots of compliments on how nice and sexy I looked. So that was a pretty good present in my mind.

Sometimes I feel like I am always mad and frustrated being a mom. The constant whinning and tantrums are wearing me out.........Let alone trying to keep up on the house and work 20 hours a week from home.
p.s. I also washed and dried my ipod shuffle
Saturday, May 3, 2008
I also was able to take Gabe for a ride and he was laughing and holding on tight. I wanted to take some pictures but when we got out there the battery was dead.
So........... the first song playing on the playlist I have been looking for awhile. I first heard it on the Mac computer commercials and I thought I really like that song I am going to try and get it. It only took me about a month to figure it out. I saw it on VH1 today while I was donating plazma. Enjoy

Here is Lacey on the slide. She can climb the ladder and go down the slid all by herself.
Gabe loves going to the playgroud.
This is currently are backyard. At least it is not a mud hole anymore.

This is Lacey's new bed, that my Dad and I built.
Here is a picture of Gabe and Lacey's matching beds. Now I just need to help my mom make a valance that matched the bedspread that she made to go on the window shades.
Gabe took this picture of Me and Lacey first thing this morning. So now you all know how I look when I wake up. It is rare to get a picture of me because I am the one taking the pictures so I thought I would post it. But not bad for a 4 year old photographer. I didn't even crop it.

Well I signed up for a personal trainer at the gym today, they were having a 2 for 1 special so my husband and I both get trainers. We are excited. Usually when i get close to the weight that I am at I get comfortable and then stop loosing weight and then I eventually put weight back on. I really didn't want that to happen so now I have a trainer to keep me moving forward to my goals.

Lacey is doing better about sleeping (However I couldn't get her to tap a nap today). We are going to get her a regular bed pretty soon.

I was thinking yesterday that I don't really keep a journal or a family history. I had this idea that I could post on here more often and make it like my family history or my journal. I could probably even print it once a year and put it in a binder. So I am going to try it, so check my blog more often because I will at least be writing a message most days.

Well I just got back from a 2 hour bike ride with Lacey in the bike trailer behind me. We had so much fun, we rode into town and then to the nature park and then over to the ice cream shop and then just for exercise we took a detour up to the temple. (yes it was hard) then we cruised all the way home. Shane went to try out his new four wheeler today for the first time and Gabe went with Shawn and Diane to Blackfoot for the day. Last night Shawn came over and was teaching Gabe how to ride a skateboard. I have some picture's and a video to show you. I fixed Lacey's hair today with pony tails all over her head it is so cute.!!!

Today was so warm and beautiful. We went to the zoo in Idaho Falls with my sister (with her kids) and mom. We have been so excited for the spring. I took a picture of some tulips that I had for a little while but already died. Gabe learned to ride a bike this week without training wheels. It took him no time at all to catch on. I will have to take a video clip of him and post it on hear.
I discovered audible.com this week. I have been listening to an audiobook while I have been working out, donating plazma, cleaning house and while my children are watching cartoons that we have all seen hundreds of times. I really like to read but since I work from home while my children go to bed I don't have much time to read but I have found that I have much more time to listen to a book on my ipod.
