For the past 2 1/2 weeks I have been completely without a car. Now you'd think that with a family that owns THREE vehicles that I would at least have ONE available to me. Sadly this is not true. You see....the Truck, its getting a new coat of paint down at Boise State. Since it is being done by students, it takes longer than normal. It will probably be in there for the rest of the semester. Our little car (which is the one Alex is supposed to be driving to and from work), is also in the shop down at Boise State, getting dumb leaks fixed. It has been there now for 2 1/2 weeks, which means Alex has been taking the Van to and from work every day! Leaving me CAR-LESS! Talk about cabin fever! When its winter, and too cold to go outside, the only thing to do is drive somewhere or find something to do in the house. Honestly I'm getting a bit sick of it. I JUST NEED OUT!

Mycah has been a little sick the last couple of days. Somehow she's come down with a little cold. Her nose is really runny today, and she has a really dry horse cough. On top of that I think that she has a little fever. Who knows where that all came from. At least she's still playing instead of bugging me constantly to hold her.
I am currently 24 weeks along in this pregnancy which means I have about 3 1/2 months left. I am feeling the little guy moving around alot more, which is exciting. I'm probably going to go see a vein specialist soon about my varicose veins. Apparently she likes it when pregnant moms come in, because she can get a better idea of what is going on. This makes total sense to me. Just recently my veins have been BULGING way more than ever. Even more than when I was pregnant with Mycah. They are very uncomfortable, and my "support hose" give me little relief. I know that they won't be able to do any "treatment" until I'm done having kids, but this will head me in the direction of eventual recovery. I'm pretty sure I will only have one more kid after this one since this problem gets worse with each pregnancy. belly (and everything else) is expanding. Bending over is getting tougher. Walking is much slower. Sitting or standing too long is also getting harder. Dinner???? Forget it. We've been living on breakfast for a month now! With all this said. I cannot WAIT for him to come. I love our kids, and love they joy they bring to our family.


  1. Being carless has to be awful... I couldn't handle it, hopefully your cars will get fixed soon!

  2. I'm sorry for you I have been there. Hey and tell Alex if he ever needs a project for his diesel mechanics students we have more than enough projects to go around. ;)

  3. How much longer are you carless?? And it's okay you have been feeding breakfast for all meals lately. Chances are your kids won't remember it or they are loving it!! They'll fondly remember how sweet their mom was to let them have yummy cereal for months on end!! Cereal's all fortified anyway, minimal dishes, and easy clean up. You can always just put little cups of milk in the fridge for them to pour their own milk in the mornings so you can sleep in just a bit longer. I LOVE CEREAL! I seriously think we're gonna starve if we don't have more than 10 boxes in our pantry. But if you're getting sick of it, frozen entrees for you to pop in the microwave, and frozen Tyson chicken nuggets are really good! and fast! Glad you're going in to take care of your v. veins...good luck with it all!
