Xander’s First Snow

We finally had our first real snow here yesterday. Ross and I took Xander outside to play with the snow. This was really the first year he was truly old enough to appreciate the fun of it. He was just two months old for his first snow and had only been walking a short...

Traumatized by Santa?

We took Xander to see Santa last night. It left me wondering why we all torture our young kids with this childhood right of passage. What is it about a child crying on Santa's lap that makes us both sympathetic and amused? Then I remembered that although I have my own...

I Can’t Explain It

Why am I up when I'm completely exhausted?! I can't explain it. Xander and I had a very challenging day. He seemed determined to make himself miserable... and I got caught in the crossfire. He was in to everything he's ever been told not to touch. He was throwing...

A Short Vacation

Image Source I have decided to take the weekend to recharge. I'm feeling a bit run down and getting a sore throat. I think I've just had too much on my plate the last few weeks and then the holiday season jumped into the mix. I'm trying to do twenty things at a time...

Birth to 3 to Layoff

I just wanted to make a quick apology to my readers for the lack of updates today. I know I missed out on a few opportunities available today and I regret that. Today didn’t quite go as planned… We’ve had some concerns that Xander is lacking in his speech skills....

Can It Really Be? Two Already?!

Two years ago today Xander was born! It was almost three weeks past his due date. Labor was pretty rough and when he was finally born he had to be rushed to the hospital because he wouldn't start breathing. Three weeks and a lot of stress later... after nearly...

A Walk in the Woods

Ross and I have had mixed emotions about some of the pictures we've had taken of Xander for his milestone ages. The pictures are okay... and that's about it. For the price you pay, it would be nice to love your pictures. So we decided to head out with our camera and...

A Long Survey Pays Off

Prior to the Olympics, I was offered a chance to participate in a study on my Olympics viewing habits. The company offering it was Opinion Square. Reviews and opinions on the company are very mixed... some very negative. They promised some very large rewards for...

New Year, New Beginnings

Image Source I suppose this will be the usual resolutions for the new year post. This year I will carry on my annual new year resolution to get fit and healthy. This year it will involve getting serious about tracking calories and a steady workout schedule. I also...

Catching Up on Summer Plans

Its been a crazy week of more unpacking, decorating, parties, and getting ready for summer classes. I've also been trying to find every bit of laundry I have so I can play with my new washer and dryer. They are Maytag high-efficiency front-loading washers with more...

Finally Home!

Image Source Well, we're in the new house... our HOME. It was a long weekend, but its settling down. We moved all my stuff on Saturday and Ross' on Sunday. Monday we went and bought the new washer and dryer. Tuesday we bought the paint for our office and I spent a...

The Stress!

I have been sadly absent from writing. Its a shame, because writing is one of those things that calms me. Its been a very stressful few weeks. The end of the semester meant a huge influx of assignments and studying. My orientation into the respiratory therapy program...

And Your Change is $6.66…

The minute I heard the words "And, your change is $6.66." I knew it was going to be a rough day. I'm not normally an overly superstitious person, but I just had a feeling it would be one of those days. I was supposed to take an exam in A&P today, but I left after...

Packing Up

Image Source I was up later last night than I had planned on. I finally found a good boost of energy and managed to get a lot of the spare room cleared out. I packed about three boxes and threw out about six bags of stuff. It feels good to purge yourself of things. By...

Crazy Days & an iPod

The last few weeks have been insane. I'm finishing up on fall semester at school, Ross and I are moving in together in less than a month, Mom is moving in with Mark before the end of the month, Angel just moved to a new place a few weeks ago, and there has been baby...

How do you tell someone they are a pain in the ass?

Image Source I'm so fricken' bored! I had another scheduling issue with Mom and had to get dropped off at school at 8:30 in the morning. The school is having a high school "knowledge bowl" and the place is crawling with teens. I've abandoned the idea of trying to get...

The Home Inspection & Alienware

Image Source Today was the house inspection. The only issue we have to worry about is the furnace. It appears to the inspector that it just needs a good cleaning, but he is concerned about a large "rust bubble" that he couldn't get a good look at inside. We are having...

We Have a Home!

Image Source Our offer was accepted. We've found the house! Its a nice bi-level with huge rooms and a well-landscaped yard. The yard even has a grill and smokehouse all ready to go. I can't wait to get moved and start enjoying home...

More on the House Hunt

Ross and I will be continuing the house hunt this weekend. He has a long weekend for the holiday, so we are taking advantage of it. We are looking at three houses each on Friday and Saturday. Many of the houses have some nice features, but I'm still pretty sold on the...

The House Viewing Begins

Ross and I looked at our first property Sunday. Its a bit out in the country, which is nice but will be bad for driving to work and school. The house appeared small from the front, but once we walked in and started looking around we realized how large it really is....
