He's Perfect

Friday, September 09, 2011

Baby Philip made his way into the world at 1:09pm on 9/9/11 at 10 lbs 2 oz and 22 in long. Due to the size, they took him by c-section, which ended up being better for both baby and momma... after getting a look at him they confirmed there was just no way he would of come naturally...Both baby and momma are good. Baby Philip is alert and curious of his new surroundings...and dd2 is in lots of pain but recovering.

Now the pics...tehe...

Life...The Rollercoaster

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

So my blood work came back...and my TSH levels are normal...normal...shouldn't i be happy about this...so why did i cry...maybe because i have more symptoms of having they hypothyroidism that i have than i had when i was diagnosed....gggrrrr....i can't lose weight, my skin is dry, my hair is breaking, my scalp is a mess and i'm tired all the time... it took me 3 months to lose 1 lb....which of course i gained back the week i couldn't work out.... my only hope was that it was my levels...

And then we got dd2...she went to the doctor today...efaced now from 60% to 80% but still only 1 centimeter, where she has been at for 5 weeks... uhg!!! we are going to have to send her back to kindergarten when he turns 5...lol... school invetro... the doctor has finally said what i've been saying...he may just be too big...so tomorrow she has yet another ultra sound... this one will take an hour and a half so they can measure baby and fluid level... if fluid level is too low, she has a c-section that night...if he's too big, probably the next night... but it looks like if both those are ok, tuesday evening she is getting induced... it's hard not to be excited...my grandson will really be here soon... but, at what cost... little momma may have to have surgery...yes, a common one...but just as dangerous as any...i am so excited...yet hesitant...scared...thrilled... we don't know what tomorrow will bring... nor in the manner in which it will get delivered... we do know that life is happening...is happening today...tonight... and tomorrow... the world still turns... and we wait...

    WooHoo, I'm excited for you and your family. But, of course, you're having a rollercoaster of emotions with fear and joy at the forefront - soon .... soon .... soon .... you'll be holding baby Phillip in your arms and it will be all so worth it!!!

Thyroid problems are so difficult to deal with especially when you really want to lose weight. When you're doing your best, there's not much more you can do, but stay the course. On the positive side, you have to healthier in other areas because of the positive changes you continue to make. Hang in Kitty!!!

    I know about the Thyroid, and all it entalls, be strong, the weight will come off, just more slowly than others who don't have this problem.

Feeling Like Super Woman

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

This weekend i will admit...i was more than lazy...yea, i got some house work done, and spent some time with my family... but for the most part...on my butt...i almost felt guilty about it...almost..lol. but for the last couple months i have been so busy, i was getting behind on everything...including myself...so it was a much needed weekend... this morning i got up and said ok, you've had your time...now time to kick butt... i started by getting rid of some things in the kitchen and bathroom, then i went and got the blood work i've been too busy to get done... i finished some odd projects at work...and then came home and put dinner in the oven and hit the tread mill...with remote in hand...no sitting there and just watching it in a half daze wondering what there is to eat... then i did some picking up and hitting a hot spot...the table beside where i sit... yep...cleaned it off... then finished dinner and allowed myself ample time to eat my yummy dinner... breaded pork chops with brown rice and spinach....i then put a load of laundry in the wash, did dishes and folded the towels that were in the dryer...finished just in time for me to get son to take out trash and put the clothes that were in the washer into the dryer...recorded my food and exercise and still able to relax a little before bed. and this after working a 9 hour day... that could of stretched to 10, but then i wouldn't of got all that done :)

My Kids Love Each Other...FINALLY!!!

Friday, September 02, 2011

ok, yes, they have always loved each other, but because they were so close in age, it was a constant battle when they were growing up...and sometimes it was hard to see that love for each other during that time...now that 2 of them are married and moved away from this home, and ds is now an only child...lol... it's exciting to see them do things for each other... dd2's car broke down...only car...and she is the one 9 months pregnant... yea...not good timing... she also had a doc appointment the next day..and considering her being 9 months pregnant...lol...she really needs to go to these... before i knew it, dd1 tells dd2 and her husband to bring the car over and that dd1's husband will fix it and that while it's being fixed, they can borrow her car for the doctors... wohoo!!! God is good. Then yesterday, dd2 wanted to come over to visit...i said meet me there, i might be a few... she stopped and got her brother his favorite pop... just because (and it wasn't even just because day...lol) so i get home and starting to prep for dinner... i told dd2 what we were having, which was baked hot boneless wings...which she hates...but i told her i would make some not sauced up...she said not to worry that she wasn't eating, she had just ate... i then went into ds's room to tell him what we were having, and the first thing out of his mouth was "what about Cathie" lol...i thought that was so cute that he not only knew and remembers that she hates hot stuff...but he actually cared enough to ask and possibly do without one of his own favorite dinners for the night...

I love watching them interact with each other...i always have anyways, but so much more so now that they aren't at each others throat all the time...lol. Again i will say, God is good...He has blessed me with some honestly wonderful kids!

  


Getting Rid Of 5 Things

Thursday, August 18, 2011

This month I have been getting ready for grandbaby, and this week especially I have been focused on getting rid of clutter...1 piece at a time. That is my goal-just get rid of something everyday...my goal is to use it up or throw it out...and donate what i can. Today's daily dare for our Teams was to get rid of 5 things...i came up with it and yet, i really didn't think i could come up with 5 things...then i went into the refrigerator...uh...ick...i haven't done the refrigerator for a couple weeks due to busy schedule and being sick... so i tackle it... i found a piece of ham, long forgotten...and gross...so 1 thing gone... oh, some veggie soup i can have for lunch...except i got so excited that it landed on the floor...2 things gone... chili from last week...gone... oh, just enough watermelon for a serving...breakfast here it comes... 4 things now gone... i found an old bun...just 1 lonely bun...hard as a rock...gone... then i realize...that's 5 things... i did it..i made not only my personal goal of 1 thing a day, but todays daily dare of 5 things... wohoo...and then i see a quarter bag of frito's... stale... gone... i just bypassed goal and it's still early... i haven't even gone to work yet. and then i see the chicken and noodle parmasan that i forgot to put in the freezer the other night... still good... that's lunch and another thing gone... so now my refrigerator is empty...lol... and goals met... now ready for more healthy food to go in :)

that's where you renew your springs that never dry up." ~Pearl S. Buck

    I haven't been getting the daily dares either, but then I don't get on the computer much during the day. Today we had an earthquake and that shook me up in more ways than one, lol.

    I like this idea ~ getting rid of something/s every day, rather than trying to do a huge clearing out on a given day, which can be very stressful and overwhelming. The atmosphere at your place must be filled with excitement, nerves and extreme happiness about baby's arrival. Have a great weekend, JoDee!

    Way to go - it sounds like my need to do Baby Steps - and I am winning.

We moved, last year, from a five bedroom farm house with three out buildings to a two bedroom apartment. Next, we'll be moving with only a pick up truck (with cap) and a mini van. To save gas money, we may pack up the truck and park it until we get some steady pay cheques coming in. I need to keep downsizing and only have 13 days maximum to do it in. It is becoming a little scary. I don't want to waste anything, including time. Thankfully we have a donation center just a block away! :-D I've walked there, many times with arm-loads of things and it's even convenient to drop off with the van as I'm heading out for other things as well. :-D
