Thank You

Thank you for you thoughts and prayers towards Mck Mama, and her unborn baby. Today they were given 50/50 odds of their baby surviving. So much better than the 5% that they had a few days ago. Reading her story over the past few days has made me realise just how lucky I really am. I am thankful for all the great things that I have in my life. I have never had to go thru a similar situation, and hopefully I never will. I don't know if I would have the same strength that this poor mom has.

I am very lucky. I have my health, my son is healthy, and so is my husband. Yes he is deployed for the third time, but he is healthy and he loves me. That is one thing in my life that I have never questioned. Our relationship is strong. We have over the past few years made sure that we value the time that we have together, and don't wallow about the time that we are forced apart.

Last night when I was cleaning our kitchen (I like to clean when Kyle is asleep) I was thinking about the negatives and positives about Kris being deployed. Last night I was really jumpy. This isn't like me at all. But over the past week we have had a bear roaming the neighborhood. It's only a Small bear I hear. I fortunately have not sighted it yet. But it did leave someones trash all over my front yard the other morning. So this is obviously a negative. With Kris at home I would have felt alot safer, and not so jumpy. But last night my one positive was that sometimes when I am feeding the pets I just throw the empty cans in the sink until I clean the kitchen. Kris hates this with a passion, and probably yells at me about it everyday that he is home. But since he is deployed I can do it and not get yelled at. It has been kinda nice. So that's my one positive. I can have all my bad habits and not annoy anyone.

So I think I have rambled on for long enough. Have a great day. Enjoy Margarita Wednesday. If you want the recipe that we use for our Margarita, it is posted over at the ramblings of h-bomb. Link in my blog roll.

Your prayers are needed.

I am sorry to report that the baby only has a 5% chance of making it until it would be safe to be delivered. That is when the baby could have a pacemaker put in. This poor mother was just told that she will most probally deliver a still born. Please pray for their health.

Original Post.
So last week I came across another blog.The blogger she a very nice person, and a mom of three very cute kids. You can tell she loves them very much. She is also caring her 4th. Late last week the doctors discovered a very serious problem with the unborns heart. I am asking you to please pray for their health, and the safety of the baby. You can read her blog. She has been very good at updating on her situation. And I think she could use as many prayers as possible. Thanks.

Kyle's First Baseball Game.

So our minor league team the Sky Sox has a promotion every Tuesday home game, that it is $2 Tuesdays. So I thought that it would be a great opportunity to expose Kyle to his first game. He had a ton of fun, but I don't think he paid one little bit of attention to the game itself. Kyle made a little friend Finn. The two of them had fun walking up and down the stairs, and swinging on the rail. It was a great night out.

Checking out the Field.

The one picture that I could get him to look at me.

Skating Party

Kyle attended a skating party this morning. He had a great time. So did I for that matter. But I think that its funny, I put Kyle's skates on first. He went into the ring and was just fine. One of the other Moms convinced me that I should skate with him, so I rent a pair of skates for myself. Thats where Kyles skating stopped. He wanted me to carry him around the rink. Which your not allowed to do. As soon as I put him down he would throw himself on the floor. Oh well. I think we had a great time overall. And it was a great idea for a birthday party. Now he is upstairs taking what I imagine to be a long nap.
Hope you all have a great weekend.

I have a problem

If you know me, you also probably know that I have a shopping problem. I love it. Doesn't matter what I'm shopping for, I just love to shop. Especially at Target. I am pretty sure that they recognise me by now. If not, they should.

Well my problem right now is that I am getting addicted to eBay. Tonight I bought three items. And yeah they are at great prices, but I hate to pay shipping. So does anyone out there have any suggestions on how I can break my addiction? Is there a twelve step program? Please help!

I also want to wish everyone out there, a happy Margarita Wednesday. I bought a margaritaville margarita machine maker, and it make restaurant quality frozen margarita. Well worth the money.

I need some advice

So Kyle is way to heavy to be in the bike seat fro much longer. I am thinking of buying a trailer. I kind of like the look of the ones that convert into a stroller as well. Does anyone own one? Do you like it? What would you recommend?
