I am a mom of a 4 yr old.

Houston was born 4 years ago today! I had been in labor for three long days. My life was forever changed.

I still remember the feeling of him being sat on my chest.

I am not sure what I did to deserve the great honor of being his mom!

Happy Birthday Houston Chance!

About to head back home...

Houston and I have been staying with my parents for the last few days... had doc appts and family stuff.

Went to a bridal shower for my soon to be triple cousin after she is married. Can we say small town...LOL

Went out to eat with my cousin and my good friend yesterday.They are both birthday girls on the we celebrated.We then went to a movie.It was fun!

Today was my due date with this last pregnancy.Makes me sad...instead last week we got to go to the genecist :( They did say that they didn't think the trisomy was inherited. We got a copy of a slide that showed our little girl's dna pairs. It was neat.The didn't see any translocations on there so that was good.

They again said since it was the complete trisomy.That you usually miscarried when we did between 11-14 weeks. If you go any farther the babies are stillborn.There has never been a complete Trisomy 8 baby born alive. It's sad :*(

Oh well sorry to depress you...just had to mention.

I am doing better than I thought.

I have had a lot to keep me busy.

Anyway, we are heading back home later. I gotta get home to get Houston to school tomorrow and the hubby got some kind bad news about his MS today at the doc so I gotta take care of him :)

I could use a few prayers if you don't mind.

Oh I get to start RCIA finally on the 10th!! WHOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!

I will write more later..sorry this is so hard to read.

Tired but can't sleep

I can tell I am hitting the 11 mass tomorrow...;)

I really haven't done a whole lot. I got my cast off and I swear trying to walk now is work ;) Seriously...still hurts :P

I had to go to the grocery store today. Man, food is sooo expensive. I about get sick waiting for the total. No extras for me.

I got a lot of BBC movies like Jane Austin's novels etc on dvd I am going to watch this week.I am excited...sooooo soooo sad.

I got lots of books to read this week so that is good.

I have to say I was a little disappointed with Breaking Dawn...not as much "feeling" I think. I would like a "Nessie" and Jacob book:)

Funny review that has spoilers from Edward Cullen.Cracked me up!

Houston and daddy went to the lake.I went into town to do some things I need to do that are hard with Houston. I need to clean tomorrow...yuck....

I did cook one of the hubsters fav casseroles and make Banana Pudding for him I guess I did do something.

I will write more tomorrow. My sleepy med is kicking in and I am getting loopy :P

Still a bum

I am having to borrow the hubs computer when I bites! It takes all the restraint I have not to go and buy a new one :P

Lets see this is a big ol update about nothing..You are all chomping at the bit now huh!

Lets see the person I was being evasive about being in the hospital was my mom.She is out now...she was having a few issues some of them are resolving somewhat...blood issues the others not so much. She has more tests this week so she could use more prayers :)

Anyway,so with my mom in the hospital for a over a week, I had my little sister here :) It was fun. She is 13. So a three year old and a thirteen year times I tell you ;) Seriously, she was a life is hard to rangle Houston with this broken foot.

We went to the library a few times and somehow they managed to get in trouble with the library for loud talking everytime :O Poor Houston has no mute button and he talks like he is talking through a bull horn at all times. God help his new teachers this year. I bet his reputation has preceed him. They will say he is soooo sweet, he is a ham, but he never shuts up.The teacher told us last year he talks more than any other child she has taught in 15 years kidding!?

He is so funny that you can't help but love him.

Lets see I borrowed all the PBS movies from the library. I am now an addict for all the shows when they make the people live in another time period. Love them.I am SUCH a nerd.

I could have told you that though. Jeremy had to go out of town with work...the In laws offered to take Houston so I had the house to myself so I could school shop. Friday, my sister went home and Houston went to his Nana's. I went to the thrift store...a guilty pleasure of mine...It's the thrill of the hunt. I then went to eat by MYSELF...then I went to the MYSELF...LOL. Then, I went to the bookstore. It happened to be the release party for Breaking here I was between people in costumes, bobbing for apples, getting vampire face MYSELF..yeah...a nerd. I was the only person there by myself:P

So then I woke up the next day and was ready to shop. I went to Gymboree first and got him $150 worth of was a ton of stuff! I paid no more than $11 for anything..I got him like 9 short sleeve shirts,1 sleeveless shirt,3 long sleeve shirts, a pair of pants than can be rolled up for manpris :)LOL, and like 12 pairs of shorts..seriously!

Here is some of what I got.

I got him lots of other cut get the idea. Got him lots of those little knit shorts easier for him to get off to potty.

I went to Children's place next got some more great deals! Went to Sears on my way out and got him like 15 shirts for $21.00. A lot of them were little polos! It was tax free weekend so I racked up!

Then went and got him the "Check" shoes he has been coveting for ever :) Along with a Speed Racer backpack and lunch box.

I had to get sooo many school supplies. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find fat pencils ???!!

Houston saw me packing all his supplies together and he said "Mama I not know it Christmas." Not quite son,not quite!

Anyway the rest of the weekend was boring.:P Later my friends called and they were free on Saturday :**) Oh well..alls well that ends well.

Gotta go pick up some makeup I preordered from Clinque tomorrow....I am tired of looking like I jaundice...olive complexion=sickly looking. I splurged but hey I needed it :P

Houston is back in school starting Thursday.I'll miss him!
