So I thought I'd share some pictures from the last few days.

This is Shyann all ready for preschool. Her & her twin sister go to a specialized preschool through early intervention. Notice the sore of Shy's chin.....she's a picker.....she'll take a tiny little owie & make a HUGE sore. Poor baby......



Michayla woke up from her nap & her ponytail holder had moved......she reminds me of a "Who" (you know.....from Whoville......lol)



Michayla is our g-tube fed baby, but she's starting to put things in her mouth......so after picking paper out of her mouth, I gave her a candy cane.....she really enjoyed it!!



Shy & Addy enjoying their lunch!



The weather here has been wet, wet, wet......so little league games have been one for each kid.......Addy finally had her 2nd game today!!!



Love the tongue out when she runs.....lol



Look at that determination!



Well still no official word about our dates yet......Mike has been having a couple miserable days at work & everyone is grumpy.....so he couldn't even inquire if we can plan on those days........rats!!! Would really like to start the planning!!

I understand! Every year we have to request our vacation in January and then we find out beginning of March if it is approved. Anytime we want after that is considered a late request but is processed much faster! This year I have requested the Friday before my birthday and the dates for the Diva trip as late requests. We usually find out the Thursday Night/Friday after we request if it was approved. For both of those the info wasn't in my mailbox and I was asking my Assistant manager about it. She asked if it was for a day coming up that I needed to know about right away. I said no... but I still want to know

Most of my trips take place in spring and summer. I went loads as a kid always in the middle of July. My first adult trip was in febuary and I remember thinking how awesome it was that Indiana Jones was only a 30 minute wait. I have been to Disneyland Once at Haloween but it was before the trick or treat party and all that. My mom wants to go at Haloween time after cars land is finished so well see where that takes us

I didn't mind the summer trip......but spring breaks are a NO WAY if I can help it.......way too busy!!

I imagine once CarsLand opens next year, the parks are going to be crazy!!! I know we're looking forward to it, as millions of other people are. Not sure we'll get a trip in next year or not......money just seems to be getting tighter & tighter.......just not sure why?

So our trip dates are still not set, as we sit in limbo waiting......starting to feel that Mike is getting the run-around at work. Sounds like he'll be given the phone # of the gal that covers all the Safeway stores vacation times in our region to see if he can trade his vacation week.....which was originally set for end of July. If she can cover him in October.....I'll finally have dates & be able to start planning!!! Not knowing is driving me crazy!!! Hang in there & hopefully I'll have news next week!!

I hate when employers give you the run around. Last year a bunch of freinds and I were going to comic con I asked for the days off months out and they still scheduled me then tried to tell me Id have to find someone to switch with if I wanted the date it was ridiculous I finally had to go over the schduleing hr reps head to get it fixed. Im sorry they are giveing your husband the run around and hopefully it will work out for the better soon

Thanx ladies!!! Mike's gonna call the gal in charge & hopefully by mid-week we'll know for sure. I still need to cancel my ressie at HoJo's but hoping to be able to just change the dates if the queen suite is available when we're going. I'm still tempted to spend the extra money & stay at the PPH.

Sorry to do this here.....but I had a horrible day & just needed to let it all out!!!

My day started with IFSP meetings for the twins. I had the meeting down for 10am & got a call about 9:20 asking if I was coming......it was scheduled for 9am......oops. Now for anyone who has sat thru a IFSP/IEP meeting, you know how long & drawn out these can get......and of course lots of paperwork to sign.......then double it for me!!

Got home & got Addy to school.....every single car on the side of the road pulled out or should I say, cut me off.......stupid drivers!!!

Ran up to the store & got a text from my son that the power had been turned off......great!! I have so many things that I'm keeping track of.....this bill got lost in the shuffle. Crap, Crap, Crap......so I not only had to pay the bill, but pay a $30 reconnect fee & a deposit to boot!!! Not money I really had today. The power was off for a few hours, but luckily back on before kids had to start getting ready for bed.

While I was at the store & on the phone with the power company, a lady pulled into the stall in front of me & proceeded to hit my front bumper......really lady??? Don't know where the front of your car is??? I was on the phone so couldn't really say anything to her.....did get out to make sure there wasn't any damage. There wasn't & she was like.....nothing hurt....like big deal! The big deal was since I wasn't expecting to get hit, the jolt has made me a bit sore this evening. I have fibromyalgia & it doesn't take much to make me hurt.

The kids fought all afternoon, Anthony tried to steal his big brothers gum from his car, the dog was into everything & the babies noses wouldn't stop running......ick!

So glad today is almost over & sorry again to rag on about my wonderful day......but needed to get it out!!!

Oh, one more thing.............AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!! !!!!


Ok, feel better now!

Always happy to be the receiver of a rant...makes me not feel so bad when I need to go on one. What was that kids book??? Something about a no good very bad day...I think you got one! Me too Brant's tooth abcessed Friday and he has been on antibiotics getting ready for a Dentist Appt tomorrow morning and Colton came down with Strep last night so went to the Dr this morning and I have had 2 whiny boys most of the day. They both felt better this afternoon and we went out in the yard since they wanted to do a photo shoot in our pirate costumes, Hopefully with 24 hours of meds under his belt Colton will feel better in the AM and go to school I got nothing done today! So there how about a rant right back at you? Your day sounds worse though!

Thanx Sherri, I needed that!! lol

Eek!!! Tooth issues are the worse!!! Strep isn't much fun either! Hopefully everyone is feeling better today & you can get back to some "normal" daily things!!

I woke up early......I hurt all over. Its amazing how a little jolt can make you feel like you were hit by a MAC Truck............ will send 2 of the 4 to school today (the 2 that fight), so should have a somewhat quiet first half of my day....looking forward to that!!

Thanx Sid!! Yesterday was definitely better, but still wiping noses. I think the girls have about 2 weeks total in the year that their noses aren't running......lol

Shyann went in for allergy testing yesterday.....they did a blood draw & she sat on my lap & didn't even flinch or say owie.....I was impressed!!! Hopefully we'll get a better idea of what's going on & maybe we can help with the ever running nose!!

Sun came out yesterday too.....was starting to think it had gone on permanent vacation.....supposed to be low 70's today......I'll take it!!!!!

Still sore today, but there's always pain pills.....wooooooo hoooooooo!!

Still not been able to get the phone # for Mike to call to request the time off.....feel like he's getting the run around.....grrrrrrrrrrrr
