I Feel Great, NOT!

I have an ear infection, I got into some Poison Ivy, I pulled my neck a bit yesterday and it's THAT time, EERRR!!! Oh yeah my left eye was bothering me for a while so I went to the Dr. He then had me go see an Ophthalmologist who informed me that I have 20/20 vision. But I am now suffering from seasonal allergies that are messing with my eye's. I am now taking an eye drop and an antibiotic for my ear infection. See why I feel great :) I have never had seasonal allergies before so this is something new for me. The Dr said he had already seen about 7 people that week who's eyes were bothering them and it turned out that it was allergies that they never experienced before.

On a lighter note Logan is loving being in the pool and I am so glad that we have fenced just the pool in separately. He is now totally fearless and is jumping in all the time. Just a few short weeks ago he couldn't even stay upright in his jacket by himself, now he is swimming from one end of the pool to the other with no help and just feeling very comfortable in the water. He would go in ALL day EVERY day if we would let him. He has a life-jacket on at all times also, pretty soon we are going to start taking him with-out the life jacket so we can teach him to swim without it.

The pool area was our MAJOR summer project. First we (Jeff) had to cut a piece of cement out around the pool, it had cracked and lifted so it was a real hazard. Our whole yard is fenced in but we needed to do just the pool area so L can eventually go out back without me. After the cement was done we had someone come and put the Aluminum fence in and then we did the deck. It turned out great and Jeff is constantly checking out how straight his work it :0) He really did do a great job and I think it turned out FANTASTIC!!!!! We have such a huge backyard that doing this did not take anything away from it's beauty :)

SCARY!

A few weeks ago I read a research study of 13,000 people. The study showed that while pregnant using your cell phone even only a few times a week was just as harmful to the unborn fetus as drinking and smoking. The study showed that the children born had a higher rate of learning disabilities, ADHD and a list of other learning problems or hyper activity. I will search for the article and post a link to it if I can find it. It was very interesting but I am sure pretty scary if your prego.

Any ways, this video was sent to me from one of my prego friends that I sent the article. For years they have been saying that cell phones cause brain tumors/cancer and then the next study shows they are safe.

What do you think of this video? I find it VERY alarming!

Watch Local 4 news tonight at 11:00

We did a story with Karen Drew a local reporter here in SE MI about our failed adoption. She tells our story and the story of Orson and a few other victims in MI. The interview was done last Weds and was supposed to air sometime in the middle/end of July and they thought it was to good to let go that long. So watch Local 4 tonight at 11:00 and Weds morning at 6:15 am for a follow up. If your not in the viewing area you can see the story here www.clickondetroit.com

Enjoying the Weather :)

We LOVE summer around here, the Winter's seems so dang long anymore. Logan has been running around with all of the neighbor kids for the past week. They are all a few years older than him so I only let him hang with them for a few so they don't get frustrated with him tagging along :) We went for a walk with some neighbors the other day and the 2 other kids are 6 they were all on their bike's it was the cutest thing to watch my 3 yr old trying to keep up with them, his legs were going so fast he was having a hard time keeping his feet on the pedals, LOL!

The little boy next door is only 4 so they play really well together. Jake got a new blow up/bounce water slide with a pool at the bottom and the 2 of them have been having a ball on it. Jake was WAY bigger than Logan when he came home but now there is not much of a difference in size maybe 2 inches and that's pushing it. It was like 8 inches just a year and a half ago.

This past weekend we had a sub-garage sale, usually we have about 17 houses out of 57 this year we only had about 7. Oh well we still did good all together we made about $370 bucks. Our best day was Thursday, Friday was good but today (sat) really stunk. I made a whopping 20 bucks for 3 hours of my time. I left for an hour and went to the store came back opened back up for about 1/2 hour and shut down, it was sooooo boring and I had enough.

We have been working our asses off around here and I just wanted to breath for a while today. I'm getting my blogging in while L is in the tub. It's always fun to keep the lap-top from getting splashed on :) Jeff is outside still working on getting the rest of the pool fenced in. I CANNOT wait until that project is done :) Then Jeff can fix the 2 sprinkler lines that got damaged while putting in the fence and maybe we will paint the swing set if we get a wild hair up our butts. I really don't want to paint another thing this year. I did the garden and all of the post, spindles and hand rails for the deck around the pool.

Logan is becoming this giant dare devil, he is scaring me to death. He is riding his bike trying to see how hard he can turn and wiggle on it before it tips over. He is trying his hardest to get the training wheels off the ground in back, it is so funny but very nerve racking. I have a feeling he is going to jumping things at a young age. We were out for a walk the other day and I was walking he was on his big wheel and he comes up behind me and says "dude get out of the way" It was so funny and it took everything I had not to bust out laughing. I then had to explain to him that I am his mommy and we don't talk to me that way. I told him that he needed to say excuse me mommy like he always does then I told him that when he is playing with his friends he can call them all dudes.

He started out very nervous

But, it didn't take long for him to go face first :)


Being silly as I am trying to take a picture of them.

Huckleberry Railroad



Jeff was on vacation this past week and we pretty much worked around the house all week. We did make time for some fun also. We took a day trip and spent the day riding trains and showing Logan what it was like to live back in the days before all of the hustle and bustle of the world today. We got there and found out there were 1500 kids from school field trips there. SO we opted to walk the village and take a little later train. We ended up with just one other person riding in our section. We all really enjoyed the day there.

We spent about 4 hours there and then headed over to my Dad's for dinner. My Dad has moved almost 2 hours away so we weren't that far away from him up there so we decided since we were so close to head that way. Logan loves walking in the woods, he could do it all day if he could. While we were out walking we seen a dog and it freaked me out, my heart was racing all I was thinking about was getting Logan up off the ground. It turned out to be a really friendly (most likely lost) 6/7 month old. She tried to get my Dad to pet her but he wouldn't. Then another dog came out of the woods and she seen it and they took off together. The other dog didn't even come close to us or even try to approach us but OMG my heart was ready to come out of my chest. I think the guy's were laughing at me :) But, all and all we had a great day!


When were done I will post some pictures of our latest project that we have been working on for a week now. We have an in-ground pool and while our yard is of course fenced in, the pool is TOTALLY exposed. We decided it was best to fence just the pool in so that way Logan when he is old enough can go and play in the yard by himself. I can't do anything in the yard when he is out there with me besides worry about where he is. L is very good around the pool but we are taking no chances. So there you go Mr Government thank you for our stimulus check we put it right back into the community just as you wanted us to do with it.

We had someone do the Aluminum Fende but we are doing the deck. It needs to have some handrails, post and spindles done and just the painting is taking for ever. We are almost done. and we can start doing the cutting and attaching. I just want it to be done. Oh ya, and of course they hit 2 sprinkler lines so we have more work to get done. We have had some major storms the past few days so at least our landscape and garden is getting some water.

My niece turned 16 yesterday so HAPPY SWEET SIXTEEN AMBER! Logan just loves her, she is about the only one beside Jeff or I that he freely hugs and kisses on.

Tons of Trucks!

That is what they call it and it is true. I wasn't sure how Logan would do just because of the loud noises but he did great and LOVED it. It took a few minutes for him to warm up, at first he said he wasn't going to do anything he just wanted to look but once I got him on the school bus he wanted to try it all. I never even new about this truck thing and it has been going on for 10+plus years. We will go again next year for sure. I cannot believe how they just opened everything up and let the kids do what they wanted in the vehicles. It was really cool!

We met up with mine and L's friend's Debra and Alec but they didn't last very long, the horns were a bit much for A LOT of the little kids. Most of the kids there were between 1 and 5 so a lot of the little ones were crying because of the VERY LOUD horns. Alec got a little hurt and scared and that was it, it's very hard to calm your little one down in such a loud environment. Logan and I stuck around after they took of and we had a blast, we were just heading up front to get going when it started to rain, just as we were getting to our truck the rain started to come down and hard, we got lucky we only got sprinkled on :)
