A week's worth...

  • Elijah is feeling much better.  He's had a few nosebleeds but is taking an oral medication for the bleeding.  We have officially entered the "Terrible Twos."  Actually I'm pretty sure we've been there for a while.  Wish us luck getting through them alive...  I did Elijah's infusion for the first time this week.  I sweated heavily, but I got it in and the nurse was very excited.  Elijah was not particularly impressed.  I don't think he's too thrilled that mom is causing him "owies" now.  I will go to a clinic in May to really learn the ins and outs and hopefully become much better at sticking him.

Beautiful Kansas sunset

  • Here are some pictures of the Spring Break casino trip.  I won $100 on a penny slot, but then I spent it all...
The pictures downloaded in backwards order so start with the room picture and work your way up.

Hotel room, Tammie and Vanessa

  • Also this week, 2 1/2 years after his birth, I started decorating Elijah's room.  I made these name decorations completely on my own!  I was pretty excited and Elijah even knew that it was his name.

  •   I got some decorations from Uppercase Living which sells sayings and graphics and such that you apply to surfaces.  Here are the items I bought for his room.

Good News

Elijah did not have a joint bleed thank goodness.  He was just sick.  After a few days of saline drops, tylenol, and a lot of sleep, I think he's finally feeling better.  He's at his dad's today for a few hours.  I need to go to work, but I think I might take a little nap instead.  I can't believe my spring break is almost gone!  We have state assessments for the next two weeks.  I've done all I can so now it's in the hands of my students...crap!!!!  Just kidding, I think they'll do okay.

Another one of "those days"

I'm taking my spring break trip tonight.  A couple of teacher friends and I are going up to the casino to stay the night.  Tammie got a free room for us since she practically lives up there.  We went discount shopping this morning, got a few clothes and gadgets.  I need to take a nap and pack and then we are leaving in a few hours. 
It appears Elijah has a joint bleed in his knee today.  He's going to his dad's and has a treatment this afternoon.  Hopefully the treatment gives him some relief.  He'll probably have to have one tomorrow and Friday as well.  Poor little was bothering him this morning, but I thought he just had fat knees and he was walking okay.  The babysitter called and said he'd been crying for an hour and wouldn't walk though.  He stays the night at Grandma's tonight, so I hope everything goes okay.  He just did too much walking and roughhousing yesterday.

St. Patrick's Day

Well...we went to the St. Patrick's Day Parade today.  It was mostly fun.  A little bit crowded and hot for the boys.  They enjoyed the parade once it began though.  We had to walk 3 blocks from where we parked, and thought we were at the beginning of the parade, but we were actually at the end of the route.  So, we didn't even see the parade until 12:30.  Besides the grown people pushing their way through to get beads and candy it was fun.  Afterwards we went to Gage Park to play and have a picnic, then home for a much needed nap (for all of us).

Busy Day

Today Elijah is at daycare and I am busy!!  I've been to school, the store, and Tammie's house.  I'm getting ready to fix lunch and then CLEAN!  Elijah has a treatment tonight and then we are going to stay at mom's house.  Aidan is supposed to come over and we are all staying the night.  Tomorrow we are going to the St. Patrick's Day Parade downtown.  I'm sure the boys will have a lot of fun!  I'm going to take pictures and will put them on in a few days.  Happy St. Patty's Day!!

Good Morning

It's after midnight.  Elijah is sleeping and I'm bored so I started a blog.  I'm going to try to keep it up to date!
