Pay Day Plans

I have several things I want to do with my money come pay day and I wanted to put them down somewhere that I won't lose, so I can remember what I plan to do with it.

$50 to Best Buy

$25 to Kays

$25 to PayPal bill me later

$15 to Mandy for Hello Kitty crochet hat

(up to) $20 to JoAnn.com for fabric

$12 for eyebrow wax

total: $147

Plus odds and ends here or there. Money is goes just as quickly as it comes.

Better Late Than Never

Finally, I have time and feel up to writing a new post. I've been really slacking here, but I am ready to change that and get back into blogging again.

Where to start....?

Maliya had her 9 month check up on the same day she turned 9 months. She weighed 16 pounds 4 ounces and measured 26 3/4 inches long. She's crawling very fast now and has started cruising just as quickly across the furniture. It's so much fun watching her grow and learn new things!

Dillon is doing great! His speech has come so far and he's trying very hard to be independent. Sometimes I wish he wouldn't because he really shouldn't be playing with his dvds and the player or other things of that nature. He recently had been sick on and off, throwing up, and I finally got him to the doctor. He said it was from constipation so Dillon had some MiraLax that was prescribed and he finally went yesterday, twice! He's been eating and drinking like his old self again, thankfully. Poor thing was so backed up.

Lee isn't being kicked out from the Enlisted Retention Board (ERB) and that has been a sigh of relief, but it's not over just yet. He has to get his PTS approved in order to re-enlist, hopefully in another month or two he will get news that it was approved and we can put away the stress and worry for another 5 years until it is time for him to re-enlist again.

I am doing alright. Stressed out often, in pain all of the time. Nothing new, really. I am glad to get back into blogging again though. It's nice to be able to put it down, get it out and reflect on your words. I think writing is the best kind of therapy there is. Plus, you always have pen and paper or a computer and keyboard. Where as friends can be hard to come by sometimes.

I look forward to getting back into this. You can leave a comment, I do accept anonymous commentors. I just ask you put your name at the end of what you type so that I know who said what. It only takes a few seconds extra to leave a few words of support or encouragement after you're done reading.

Catching Up

Wow, it has been such a long time since I wrote on this blog. My best friend linked to her Facebook from her blog and I had to log in for my comment to post. After I was logged in, I figured I could write up an update.

I've been blogging, just not on this platform. I think I should get back into it here because it's a great release and I've been so stressed out.

Maybe I will sit down later once the kids are in bed (aka when it's quiet) and write up a detailed update. I'm not sure of who even reads this because hardly anyone leaves a comment to let me know "hey, I read your blog and I'm here for you!" Well...some leave a comment when I link it to Facebook, on Facebook, but it's only if I link to here. Sometimes I forget to do that.

That's why I like the other place that I blog, there is always someone to reply to your words. To give support, encouragement or even just to say they hope you had a good day!

le sigh.
