Saturday Post: Bella Boo’s Birthday and More {10.13.18}

It’s Bella Boo’s Birthday and we have some errands to do…
Now if only Hubby would hurry up!!

We were hoping to see Hubby’s dad today but they aren’t doing anything special for his grandmother’s (not EG) bday. Her birthday was yesterday but they are celebrating it today.

Today is Bella Boo’s 7th birthday. She is now considered a senior. If you don’t already know, Bella Boo is my Neapolitan Mastiff. We have had her since she was 15 months old. Perfectly healthy… she is starting to limp some and that’s cause Mastiffs tend to have horrible hips and joints.

At the moment, I am getting ready to figure out, as quickly as I can, how to get my blog merged with my previous one. I don’t know why I didn’t just change the name instead of starting all over again. I think I was thinking it would be a good “new start” cause this blog starts at the beginning of the year…

Waiting for Hubby to get to a “save point” and then change so we can leave.

More when I can!!

Thanks for “listening”!!!

Fall Break: Week 2 finished {10.12.18}

Two days in row!? It’s a blogger miracle!

(Friday, October 12, 2018)

Both of my hubby’s grandmothers were born on the same day but 18 years apart. EG is in Vegas and his other grandmother is home. Hoping to go up to FH to visit tomorrow… just waiting to hear back from his dad.

Gonna take Hubby to work when he gets here on his lunch. I’m thinking about putting my big girl pants on and finally taking a ride over to dollar tree. Still haven’t driven myself there or with M so we’ll see how it goes. If I get anything I’ll let you know with a haul though… the better haul will be when we go to the biggest Dollar Tree in the state. Luckily, it’s only a 25 minute drive there from here. It will be a girls day out. I’m thinking about vlogging but his family isn’t big on social media even though they look at it themselves (none have an account but they will check out whatever Google allows them to).

I’m gonna update my planner, watch some Hulu (aka shows that had new episodes last night), make breakfast, and my usual Friday morning routine. I’m thinking about making my daily routine videos next week after she is back in school, but I also have A LOT of catch up to do cause cleaning was a lot harder with her here and even more so with TV being SUPER tempting since it’s a brand new season. When she’s in school, I only watch it then or at night when Hubby goes to the gym.

If I’m lucky, I can watch an episode if she naps BEFORE we pick up Hubby but that doesn’t happen, especially since it’s easier for her to take a nap when we are waiting for him.

I’m going to try to get back into blogging daily once things settle again. I am also hoping to film 1-4 videos a week so I can post 2 videos a week. Right now, I’m thinking about posting on Mondays and Tuesdays but may change it to Thursdays and Fridays. But not sure. I was gonna post on Monday but… I may just post on the weekends. I don’t know. I originally like the Thursday/Friday schedule idea so we’ll see…

Right now, I need to get things going for the day!

More soon!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!

second of 2

Video: Life Update {YouTube}

First of two videos for this week.

Fast Forward: June 18 to June 26

M got into the preschool program and starts July 23, which is a day before she turns 3. That night, she also got sick. She has been sick for about 2 weeks. I have called the doctor’s office and spoke to them twice and talked to the on call nurse through our insurance. She ended up in the urgent care cause we didn’t want to wait for her appointment with her regular doctor that day. Long story short, she’s on an antibiotic for her ear infection that hadn’t even started. It was just starting when they looked at her ear in the urgent care. She has had D for 2 weeks as well. Yesterday and today, she has gone #2 more times that I can count. She developed a nasty (side effect) rash but it keeps clearing up. It started yesterday late afternoon.

There has been drama on and off.

Tomorrow morning, M has OT at 8am. I will be posting a regular post (I hope) and then a Plan Ahead the following day cause THEY will be visiting.

I may have found a second planner peace option.

And… That’s it cause I need to make sure she gets some sleep. I’m tired from being up with her till 10:30pm last night. She had a bad belly ache and threw up on me… several times. I’m hoping that she doesn’t tonight so I don’t have to cancel her OT tomorrow morning.

Good night.

Sunday: Father’s Day {6.17.18}

Good Morning!

Today is Father’s Day so we will be spending it with my Hubby’s dad. The plan is to get there early and to take Hubby and his dad to Portillo’s for free desert! Also we are getting a table and bed from one of Hubby’s coworkers. (THANK YOU!)

Happy Father’s Day!

Thursday: When kids are sick… {6.14.18}

When kids are sick…
(Thursday, June 14, 2018)
8 days until my 4 year anniversary

10:46am

This morning was rough… M woke up with night terrors and ended up getting so upset that she threw up. She still has some diarrhea but it’s becoming more solid. She at a fruit grain bar this morning and another half one last night. I can’t wait for her to feel better and eat more. It scares me when she doesn’t eat but who eats when they don’t feel good? I know I don’t. I’ve been feeling pretty nauseous, too, the last few days that she’s been sick but I think it’s cause of lack of sleep and stress.

Still hoping to get the kitchen cleaned and the living room presentable. Sorry these last few days haven’t been the greatest posts but when the kid is sick, nothing gets done. I just realized the time. Need to get ready to make Hubby his lunch and I need to drink another cup of coffee and try to get M to eat again. Hoping she takes a nap and when she does, it’s a long one. If she doesn’t wake up happy in the morning, I’m gonna tell her OT that it needs to be a short session since she doesn’t feel good and hasn’t gotten sleep this week. So…

Gotta Go!

More Soon!!

Wednesday: Feeling Better! {6.13.18}

Someone is feeling much better!
(Wednesday, June 13, 2018)
9 days till my 4th wedding anniversary!

Kiddo threw up again yesterday evening but I think it was cause she was upset. Today has just been a slow chill day. She ate a fruit and grain bar and drank some water and apple juice but that’s it so far…

I filmed a video, though I’m debating on refilming it… I’m hoping to have it up Friday morning. (Side Note: I will link my other videos soon!)

Well… It’s 4:30pm, the kiddo didn’t take a very long nap at all… I need to tidy up and well… to be honest… after getting no sleep yesterday, I’m still pretty exhausted.

Gotta Go!

More Soon!!

Tuesday: I’m exhausted! {6.12.18}

You guys… I’m exhausted!
(Tuesday, June 12, 2018)

8:54am

Hopefully today is the first of many regular posts…

THEY left yesterday to travel till Saturday. Then Sunday is Father’s Day so we won’t see them until later next week…

But anyways…

I have been up since 4am. Little Miss wasn’t feeling well this morning and threw up twice. Once a little, once a lot. She has been fine though since then. A little warm so I gave her just a little bit of Tylenol. The only time she has ever felt warm like she did this morning is whenever she has had a mild fever. She already runs warm cause that’s just something she got from her daddy. They both run hot like furnaces but this morning she was running a bit warmer. If I had actually take her temperature, I would bet a million dollars that I don’t have that her temperature would have between 99.8 and 100.3.

I’m absolutely exhausted but I have a lot to do today. Yesterday was a complete emotional wreck! We went back to the school to find out how M did in her evaluation and based on what they saw and how responded… She’s a bit behind for her age. No imagination, lacks artsy interest, lack of many things… I’ll be honest… I spent the rest of the day hating myself wondering if I was a bad parent… but then…

I thought about it and if I was such a bad parent, I wouldn’t have gotten her help back when we noticed her development was a little bit behind. Her speech was our primary concern until she got evaluated back in November and noticed more. She hasn’t gotten worse. Since she started the program she is in, we have noticed a huge difference, but obviously she is still a bit behind.

Between now and July 23, when she starts preschool, we are going to work twice as hard with her. She’s getting the help she needs and that’s what matters.

I also reminded myself and my husband that even if we had money, spent our whole day playing with her, teaching her… she may still be where she is now. It happens! So at the end of July, she will be with helpful teachers and kids who are at the same place as she is with development. I have some phone calls that I am waiting for from the school. We are hoping that we can get her into a school that is super close by cause I will be the one taking her. I will have to drop off my hubby and then drop off the kiddo. They DO offer the busy which I’m sincerely considering if I’m not comfortable driving by the first day of school. I have already decided that if I’m not comfortable, she will ONLY take the bus until I AM comfortable. I’m really hoping that I can get comfortable quickly.

Alright… lots to do and cause DK is at work this morning, I also wanna do a few videos if I can wake up for them…

Gotta Go!

More Soon!!

Sunday: Family Day {6.10.18}

Plans changed… not going THAT WAY but doing our usual Sunday of groceries, cleaning, meal prepping, and small errands….

Right now, it is 8:43am and that’s the same time as when I wrote up yesterday’s I think… We were talking about going to see his grandparents tomorrow but decided against it so that we could get some stuff done today.

Currently, I’m watching youtube. Which reminds me… I have a few videos that I’ve done and not yet shared here on my blog so I will have those up soon! I just posted a tiny sticker haul from WildSummerDesigns.

Hubby is still sleeping, M is on the bed with him with breakfast and her tablet, and I’m getting ready to clean up some while they are in the other room. Plans are simple today. Hubby is gonna pick up our groceries between 10am-11am, we’re going to CostCo, and gonna try and get the closet done so that we can move some of the stuff in the living room to our closet until we get the cube organizers we need. I also still have some cleaning to do. I was able to dust but I still need to vacuum. We have an early morning tomorrow; meeting at 9am and OT at 10:45am.

Hoping to get all this done today. Or at least the cleaning part… but we’ll see…

Gotta Go!

More Soon!!

Saturday Post: Let’s Get It Done! {6.9.18}

I know it’s still early but the goal is to clean the house, get groceries, and get the closet done and some of the living room. We are getting a table and a new bed from a coworker’s of Hubby’s in a couple of weeks. We need to do the closet and finish the living room so we can make room for the stuff. I really hope we can get it done cause next weekend is Father’s Day weekend and I wanna get a couple of the cube organizers to finish off our place.

So yeah… A LOT to do… and I feel like there is never enough time on the weekends cause Hubby always sleeps in late. But right now, since I finally got my BLOG caught up… I’m gonna get off here, hop in the shower, and start getting sh*t done. Oh and his grandparents are leaving for a week on Monday so we’re gonna see them tomorrow… I hate visiting them on Sundays cause Hubby works early the next day… Oh one more thing… The preschool evaluation was Wednesday… don’t ask cause I honestly don’t know how she did or if she’ll get in but I really hope so. If not, then I will be doing a year of homeschooling for her before starts preschool/pre-k in a year. We’ll find out Monday Morning…

Again… lots to do so…

Gotta Go!

More Soon!!

Rewind: Sunday Post {6.3.18}

Sunday Tasks and Family Day… well… sorta…

No… It wasn’t all that it should have been… We went and got the oil changed and were stuck there for 3.5 hours… M was really good though. We went to Wal-Mart for the oil change. We were gonna get groceries but M really needed a nap. We got home and chilled out. I ordered groceries to be delivered the next day… and that was about it… the very serious drama that went on… I’m not going to share because it’s not mine to share.

Gotta go!

Friday: Plan Ahead: Rescheduled OT {6.1.18}

Today M has OT (rescheduled from Tuesday) and it’s gonna be a long day!
Written 5/30/18 for Friday, June 1, 2018

It’s gonna be an early day cause OT is at 2pm so M needs to be up by 1pm so I’ll be putting her down around 11:30am and getting her up no later than before 1:30pm. Hopefully, if we go for a walk before they(?) get here she’ll be in a good mood…

Health Status: Ugh… Day 3 {5.31.18}

I’m hoping it’s allergies and it will go away…

As I’ve told you a few times, we went for a walk after dinner on Sunday and walked by someone doing their lawn. I started to feel a little bit something Monday but blew it off cause we were staying busy…

Tuesday and yesterday, I felt horrible. It has progressively gotten worse and better at the same time. If it is not gone by Sunday night, I will be calling Monday morning for an appointment to see the doctor on Wednesday in the late afternoon. If they are not available, I think I’ll end up going to the Urgent Care instead.

It basically feels like I have a piece of stringy, chewed up chicken in the my throat. I don’t know how to describe it other than that. I started to cough a little late Tuesday but yesterday it got worse. It hurts to cough, I’ve been EXTREMELY nauseous, and swallowing takes too long. Drinking coffee has helped, but I have to put a little bit of creamer in it cause I can’t stand black coffee… just too bitter and I don’t like it.

I will update you this weekend and let you know if I’m going to the doctor’s or not.

Thanks for listening!!!
