well i’ve spent the majority of my morning messing with my silly myspace account that i’ve neglected since lizzie faith was born. so go check it out and see what’s new… and do let me know what is new with myspace if you are a myspace-er. i have no idea what you do to your page these days. i’ve seen those ‘bumper stickers’ and i think some of those are super cute! i just don’t know how or where to get them- so if you know, please share!! alrighty, that’s all for now. i’m starving!

gorgeous!

what wonderful weather! yesterday we spent the majority of our day outside! we set up a lil nook by my fav tree with my Adirondack chair daddy made, an iced beverage, a good book and a blanket with all of lizzie’s favorite toys and books! she had a blast sitting on her blanket watching everyone walk/drive by and play while the breeze blew her barely-there hair. lol we even played fetch with lucy. that just may have been lizzie’s favorite part of the day! it was great! today, the weather is just as beautiful but we won’t get to spend as much time outside as i’d like.

after lunch we are headed up to church to copy copy copy… i’m ready to copy the bulletins and such, which is awesome cuz usually i’m not ready until thursday! yea! i love that feeling! hopefully it won’t all fall to pieces saturday like it did last week and TOTALLY fall to pieces on sunday morning! it’s sooo stressful when that happens and it’s partially my fault!

so i feel a bit more relieved- after talking to my sister a couple weeks ago and my good friend, mc on saturday, they helped me realize this nauseous feeling sometimes is a sort of an anxiety attack (nope not a baby! bummer! 😉 ). i get this, i’d say, at a minimum once a week. it’s bad! it started after lizzie was born. i think it’s the result of several situations and things. eric and i talked about it last night. i think i feel better now having “diagnosed it” and feeling like we both are aware and can emotionally deal with it before it gets to an “attack”. how pathetic sounding huh! i’m really NOT a mental case, i promise!!! i just need to learn how to deal with things in these new situations and take lots of b complex and b6! : ) “BEEF it’s what’s for dinner!” tee hee!

i’m getting really bored these days! my bloggin buddies haven’t been bloggin this week! shame shame! i hope your lives settle down again and you are able to entertain me by your blogs very soon!!! LOL

ok i’m off to get some more things done for the day!

more complaints

yep, me again, complaining! i’m just so good at it!

the mechanic called, he was working on our car today- gonna have it done today or tomorrow… he called and said this transmission we bought was CRAP! and needed a different one! thankfully eric was in the same town as this mechanic working and he was able to run up to the shop and check it out and deal with it right away. here’s the real cool part, the parts company is replacing it as an even over exchange and delivering it. super nice! it is their job to do so, but i still appreciate them and are thankful they have a part to replace it with and we don’t have to pay more!

how sad is this flooding! i’m all ranting and raving about a silly car and people’s homes and lively-hoods are in ruins! i’m praying for you! i’m so sorry for you!

 

my lizzie faith

i don’t think i’ve blogged about my lilgal for a long time. i haven’t posted pics either- i put the batteries on the charger tonight so now i can actually take pics/videos… it’s my goal for tomorrow( i know i’ve said that a hundred times, but it really is!)! she looks totally different!! she’s gained quite a bit of weight in a fairly short amount of time and it’s really changed her facial features and the way her cloths fit! she’s growing up! she’s talking like crazy!!!!!!!! i hope i can get it on video cuz it’s just too fun! she’ll have grunting convos with daddy like with no one else. it’s hilarious! she’ll start laughing/giggling for no reason if you are laughing or giggling. i love that! i think that’s my favorite. it’s the sweetest/hearty laugh. lol i laugh just thinking about it! today she was seriously into spitting and blowing and making fart noises out her mouth! spit was everywhere!!!!!! she didn’t seem to mind- she couldn’t have been more pleased with herself!

today we worked hard on church stuff, baked cookies, scrubbed the tub, sink, toilet, and bathroom floor, washed two loads of laundry, walked to church, stamped 40 invites, played outside, hugged and kissed daddy! what a good day!

home sweet home

home will always be home. i’m so glad for that. i don’t think i regret our decision to establish our family in lancaster for the time being, but that doesn’t mean i don’t appreciate the days we spend at my home. the children are so sweet and i miss out on so much!

i guess i’ll start with the end of the day first and work my way through the day. we went to b and h’s for supper and everyone was there. we had a wonderful time. yummy food, a big swing set to swing on, a big trampoline… speaking of “the tramp” as the kiddos call it, i decided to get up and jump with lilli and attie. what a ball! lizzie faith wanted to join in on the fun so i held her while we all jumped (barely!) but it was tons of fun. i stopped after not too long feeling like i was going to pull every muscle in my legs! but it was sure sweet! lol right before we left, gena and liz decided to have some quality time! it was video quality too! soooo cute! at times gena wanted lizzie to hold her, she can never be close enough to lizzie and lizzie is so much more reserved than that! lol i love how much we can see of each of their personalities already! gena is such a sweetheart! i feel like i’ve missed so much! 

mary catherine and i made a large dent in the wedding invites, i think! if she posts pics on her blog, i’ll link this post to them, otherwise you’ll have to wait until after the wedding to see everything we are working on! 😉 i have a lot of work to do though! but i’m sooo excited and looooooove this kinda thing!! mc’s mom is a spoiler and she did just that to me yesterday. she got me a g.c to smokey row, which after lunch i had a wonderful time picking things out! : ) yea! for shoppin!

before we went to smokey row for lunch we were at bridal dreams while mc tried on her wedding dress and such. we headed up to ‘art on the square’ before bridal dreams and ran into some good ol’ friends and their families! what fun was that!! i’m so glad we ran into each other!

that’s the run down, it feels like the way i typed it is some what of a boring day! please don’t be confused, the day was everything but boring! ; ) it was a busy busy day! eric with a migraine, lizzie deciding everything was too exciting to nap! AHHH! my survival was questionable at times! but i absolutely had a wonderful day thanks to all of you people who were in it!!
