Clean Garage

Well yesterday I decided to finally break down and clean my garage. I have about 50 rubermaid totes that I moved from Indiana and it has been a year since we've been here. I have not even opened half of them. So I thought I shall get rid of stuff. I went through all of them and through out all the clothes I have been saving. and all the other stuff that was practically useless. Now there are about 16 totes in the middle of my garage floor waiting for my prince to come and haul them away. I also have a side entrance garage and I installed 3 blinds. now lets talk about my physical condition. I have almost no physical and it is all my condition. I am 9 weeks pregnant and so I am enjoying the morning sickness all day long. Then I have MS and have been off my meds for a while so that leaves me practically useless, because I have no energy to do anything or my body just doesn't work. But miraculously yesterday it did. and now I can't move. My muscles are so sore, and my back is killing me, needless to say I am in my assumed position, in my recliner with the laptop.

It gets even funnier. I haven't really exercised or moved more than I have had to for about a year and 1/2 because of my ms. So I was thinking that I need some prenatal yoga dvd. so I went on amazon and saw a prenatal pilates. I did pilates once. It was great. Then I remembered my hair dresser telling me that she did pilates with the new circle resistance thing, and she said it slimed her up so nicely, like smaller than she'd been in forever. So I reasoned that since I did pilates once and it worked so nicely for her, I need to get the new circle and dvd. but now that I can't move so well I just kind of laugh, like am I serious? I thought I couldn't move before. so I will let you all know how I do.

Love Idaho Winters

Well I have to say that I have only been in Idaho seven months and have already had all kind of winter mishaps. The first one happened six days before christmas. I dropped my daughter Sydney off at preschool and ran to Idaho Falls to do some last minute shopping. I had thirty minutes to go through toys'r'us and get what I needed. I finished shopping and quickly went to the car to strap Mackenzie in her chair. I went to make sure that I had my phone and it was gone. I ran into toys'r'us to look for it and find out if anyone had turned it in. I was unsucessful. Needless to say I had wasted 8 minutes. So I was in a hurry to get home. I decided that I was going to take the back roads to Shelley because they would get me there sooner. Funny thing. I didn't know the back roads. I knew that if I went south and east following the mountain, I would get there. So I am going down this country road about 55 mph and there was snow on the roads but not too bad. Ahead of me I see a big pile of snow. I thought that it had fallen off the back of a truck. As I an right up on it, it was a more solid looking pile of snow. Then I proceed to drive over it and there are lots of loud bumps. I realized then, that wasn't a pile of snow, that was a large rock. I go a little farther on the road and suddenly the rpm's rev. and then I let off on the gas and try to push on the gas again with out reving the rpm's. But this time the car wouldn't accelerate. and then it slowely coasted to a stop. I pulled over on the side of the road and my car was dead. Great and no cell phone. I was supposed to pick up my daughter 5 minutes ago. So I quickly got Mackenzie out and we walked to a house to use the phone. A little old lady lived there and was happy to help.

We ended up having our van towed to the shop and there it sat begging for someone to look at it. finally two days later they found out that I had cracked my transmition casing and the van needed a new transmition. It would be shipped from Oregon. Bla, bla, bla because of the holidays, and no one was working, our van wass in the shop for three weeks. Ugh. Luckily we have these amazing nieghbors that own two vans and a truck and they loaned us their van the whole time. They are so generous.

Family Pictures

Mackenzie's Red Face

One night I put Mackenzie, 2 year old, to bed. An hour or two later I went to check on her. The lights were on in her room and when I looked at her face, it was all red. I was like, "What happened to her? Is she allergic to something?" Then I look closer and her hands were all red and my makeup was out. She had gotten out of bed, gone into my bathroom and gotten my makeup out of the drawer and put my lip stick all over her face. I had to throw away all my lip stick. Isn't she a monkey?

First Day of School

These are the kids first day of school pictures. They were very excited to go. Christian got to ride to school on the bus for the first time. WAAAAAHOOOO! Christian started second grade. And Sydney started pre-school. Sydney goes to pre-school 3 days a week, tues., wed., thurs., for two hours a day. These past couple of weeks we have skipped a day. Due to poor sleeping times. I love Christian's excited dork look.
