I worked the pole like a pro...

Sadly, it was an iv pole so no money was involved ;)

I swear I would love to calculate the hours I have spend hooked up it would be like a million hours...or so it seems.

It is kinda funny and kinda sad that Houston thinks it is normal.

He thinks everyone has their own nurses, all mommies have their own scarfs (scars) and that every day is treatment day.

He even tells the nurses he can give me my medicine, he probably could...LOL

Well week before last I was sick, like I wanted to run into traffic sick, they tried to force my hand and made the hospital not seem so bad, they know all to well how I try and weasel out ;) Well I decided instead that because Houston was going on Vacation the next week that I would just go to my docs office everyday for the IV meds, because the home nurse couldn't do them because what they were.

It seemed like a good idea.

For the first day.

Then it was a little more suckage everyday. It is a yuck drive even when you feel good so it was not fun, but the nurses are the best port accessers ever, I almost want to kiss em' hardly anyone gets in in good the first time, because the port is so old, and trying to go bad , pesky thing!

So they used a lovely 1.5 needle , after I about had to go change my was all uphill from there :)

Then figured out that one of my favorite nurses from my floor at the hospital is now working at the, win :)

Anyway, I felt a little better last week and the childlessness helped, to be honest.

Then start feeling way yuck again so I wanted to form tackle my nurse in a good way when she got here.

Then she told me one of my meds was being no longer I preceded to panic but then calmed down when I realized their was a comparable med.

Yay, me.

I know this is probably like the most boring blog post ever, but hey just need to get it out every now and then.

Lets pray for feeling "my" normal :)

Haven't had much to write about...

Was sickly last week.

This week I did get to visit some with friends which was lovely, not lovely because my baby was going to the beach :(

Today I get to ....hold on wait for it.....CLEAN.

Fun Times.

Speaking of fun times, can you guess who we saw this Sunday while waiting on the grandparents...

Houston was in awe of meeting his idol. He could barely speak and if you know him you know that is a big thing ;)

Can't wait until I see the little guy again, Houston not Thomas ;)

I want a photography mentor *pout*

I want someone I can ask things, that can teach me things, critize me etc.

Not easy to find there is like a 10 page thread on ILP, not seeing that happening. A photog was taking some mentorees and I wasn't in that bunch :P

I know I am not going to go in business. I won't trust me. I just want to be able to take the best pics for my family...and maybe some money exchanging hands...which I think put some people off.

Also, I have no desire to do studio stuff...I am a lifesytl'er' all the way.

Any ideas on how to get a mentor???

I feel bad bothering people because I know they are busy.

Just kinda thinking out loud.

Well went to leave on Saturday and my car water pump was I was carless all day. Still wasn't done by Sunday so J had to drop us at church and go work on the car some more :(

Got it working and we made the rounds with the family yesterday.

Houston got some goodies and then my parents bought him a nintendo DS. He is spoiled rotten.

He got a big boy haircut and he almost doesn't seem like the same kid...he has had the bowl cut for so long I barely recognize him ;)

These pics aren't the best but you get the idea ;)

Houston's easter duds...

Figured I would go appliqued....I resisted the was hard but he is too old. Sad but true.

He has lost alot of weight and could honestly wear the size 3 but I got him a size 4. I think preschool is about the limit to wear it though.

The thing about the south is monogramming, smocking and appliquing is huge.

He is the ONLY kid in his class that doesn't have his name on his backpack ( only because it wouldn't fit ;P )

Everything is very"cutesy" for lack of a better is his little backpack

All you non southerners are probably cringing...definately regional!If he was a girl he would have a bow the size of a softball on his little noggin'
