I was looking for a funny video of Paige and found this. It was taken in Feb 2005 when Jake was 14 months old.

10. It's 6* outside and with windchill it feels like -4* (probably more since it's windier here than in town).
9. My pot roast is going to have to cook an extra two hours because it's cooking was interupted.
8. I had some items that needed to be mailed today but I have no car.
7. It's cold in the house because we had no heat for a few hours.
6. I missed turning in an assignment and the teacher will not take a late turn in (GRRRR).
5. My hair is so frizzy and gross and even all the crap I put on it and flat ironed it, it's still resembles Carrot Top's hair just not as cool.
4. My husband's car may be out of commission for more than just today, so I may be without a car as well.
3. Kira has puked on me six time in the past 2 hours, so I have the lovely au do baby puke sent going on.
2. Our house was without power for two hours and it threw off my whole groove. Laundry sat in the washer, not washing, in the dryer-not drying, my kids sat at their school without power and I couldn't call to see if school was cancelled.
1. When taking the dog out, I slipped and fell flat on my back smacking the back of my head on the pavement.

Today I got a call from the school telling me that Kali doesn't feel well. I had JUST got the littles down for their nap and had an 'oh crap!' moment. The nurse offered to just give Kal tylanol and see how that went and it did the trick but Kal was not happy with me. She was supposed to have a playdate but had to cancel it because she wasn't feeling well.
Tomorrow is Kira's second synagis (rsv vaccination) shot, then she has her second NICU follow up apt later in the week. I will have to check as it may actually be tomorrow morning.

Then today we were watching a Christmas show on TV and I was trying to explain to him that baby Jesus was born in the stable instead of a hospital. He seemed to understand and a few minuets later asked me, "Why does it end in -spital?" I had no idea what he was talking about so I looked at Kira, and she didn't have anything on her, looked all around to make sure I didn't have any spit up on me that I didn't know about then asked him what he meant. He looked at me like I was crazy and said, "You know, hospital. Why does it end in -spital? Did they slobber when they named it?"

Looks like it will be just us again this year, Toby's family has yet to call us to tell us if there is a family gathering. They do this every year, except usually they call Tuesday AFTER I have bought an entire Thanksgiving meal to tell us that the dinner is at so-and-so's house. No call this year though. Toby's Uncle was in town so maybe the decided to have it early and just didn't bother to invite us-wouldn't surprise me one bit. Heck Kali's birthday was the 8th and grandma hasn't been out to see her yet @@. I so regret moving from my family but I know even without his family living here is far better than where we were.

She had her 6 month well baby visit on the 6th and she weighed in at 19lbs 2.2oz (95%), was 26 1/4 inches long (75%) and her head was 16 7/8inches (75%). They showed me her preemie chart - I guess they still plot it until 1 yr - and she was way, way off of that chart LOL. She was nearly off of the regular baby chart. She is doing well developementally as far as they could see and didn't think it was a big deal that she *still* isn't rolling.

On another note, the dealership has fixed my Exploder so I will have to say good-bye to my roomy rental and go back to my matchbox baby. At least I will have the 'voice' to guide me again. Hopefully I wont be standing around at the polls too long and I can be home by naptime :).

Also, I didn't realize how dependant I have become on my navigation until I drove a vehicle with out it! Our dealership is in Blair, Nebraska, which is a little town outside of Omaha. From our house we take little back road highways to get there and usually I just plug in the address and go but on the way home I was a bit nervous not sure if I was going the right way or not. I DID go the right way but I sure do miss the lady that tells me to turn right in two tenths of a mile LOL.

I wanted to follow up on the email I sent you earlier about my participation in the Breast Cancer 3-Day. I've been spending the past few weeks preparing for the event and have made steady progress. So far I've raised over $300 - only $1900 to go!
My training is also going well. I've walked 30 miles in the last 3 weeks. I can hardly wait to hit the route with the thousands of other women and men who are joining together for this common cause.
I have no doubt I will meet my fundraising and training goals. I've had several generous contributions to start a raffle as well. More details to follow later. The raffle winners will be chosen on Nov 5th, so please make your donations asap!
Please follow the link below to visit my personal and fundraising webpage to make your donation today. Remember you can split your contribution up over the next 7 weeks if you like.
If you can skip one Cafe Latte (appx $4.50 value) a day you'd be able to donate over $150 and probably never notice the difference. I have until the middle of Dec to meet my $2200 goal and am so thankful for every donation since we all know every penny helps!!
So, please feel free to forward this email to your family and friends that you feel would like to participate in this journey as well.
As always, thank you for your support and prayers.

I don't know how your views on Myspace and Facebook are with your teens but with me and mine it is a for sure NO. Haley and I have had the Myspace talk many, many times. She tried the old 'my friends all have them' nope don't care. There are many reasons why I don't want her to have one but lets start w/the obvious one of she's a kids who doesn't think and always believes things that people say. So imagine my shock when I turn on her computer and up pops Facebook as her set homepage with her email in the sign in box. Oh hell no! I asked her if she had an account and she at least said she did and didn't lie first, so I did what any parent would and asked her for her password LOL. She of course LIED about it and after 4 tries/lies I simply did a password reset and since I know her email because I do monitor that-not as closely as I should if she was able to set up a Facebook w/o me catching the email ::HMF::. I see 20 some odd borderline provocative pictures, her first and last name, full address, home and cell phone number, and her school. Now it doesn't take a genius to figure out that that is completely unsafe for the average person let alone a teen. She not only put herself in danger but all of her younger siblings as well. Our house is a predators dream as far as pretty little girls go and here she is spreading our info-along w/pics of her little siblings I might add-on a social networking site. Then I find out that she at least had the account since June but try as I might I can't find where the 'member since' info is on the account. If any of you know where this is located and can point me to it I'd appreciate it. In any case she lost her cell phone, computer, email, digital camera and after her dad sees the Facebook it will be deleted. In the meantime I changed the password and email addy on it so she can't reset the pw. I was looking at some of the girls she has on there and am dumbfounded as to why they would want to place pictures of themselves like that on this site. Just stamp "whore" on your forehead and forgo the internet completely LOL.

Ugh! I feel so old. I can not believe that I am the mom of a child that can legally drive where we are-she isn't driving, but she *could. She is really putting the pressure on to get that license but I need to talk to our insurance agent and the DMV to see what all we need to do.
