I am a 31 year old working mom. I have two children ages 6 & 8. I am newly remarried (two years and counting) and enjoy spending time with the hubs! Even though life is busy I try to take a little time to show what is going on in my world. This blog is mainly for daily happenings, finances and such. I have created a whole new blog at Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker to chronicle my creative sides. You will find recipes, cooking adventures, crafts and a whole lot of digital scrapbook layouts.

Man, it has been a while since I have posted. A lot of that time has been dealing with a sick child - Emilia. She was sent home from school on a Tuesday with a fever and was out the rest of that week and the following week with it. We thougth it was just the "flu" thing that was going around and I guess we will never know for sure, because she went to school on a Monday and was sent home with a fever again on Wednesday. Steve took her to the ped. and we found out that she has a UTI, poor thing. This is her fourth one. Tomorrow she is going into the hospital for a test they are going to put some dye into her bladder using a cathedar and see if it is getting into the kidneys. Margaret is coming with us to help keep Emilia calm. I am not sure what will happen if it is -- and it would definatley not be a good thing, but I don't want to get all freaked out, but I am worried.
Nicholas has lost both of his bottom teeth and the permanant ones are coming in somewhat sideways.....he will need braces/orthodontist work. He has been having alot of bad dreams lately, the other night he woke up and said a dragon was chasing him. He also wasn't feeling very well this past week or so, and Margaret mentioned it is affecting his schoolwork. But he was feeling better on Sunday, so hopefully it has past whatever it was.
Steve is doing good working hard and so am I. We are hoping to get a new car soon - but the kind we want (Honda Pilot) is expensive even the used ones. So -- who knows what we will get, probably won't even start seriously looking until summertime.....
