well...it has been awhile since I'e really posted anything, why? Well, my laptop had quit working. Turns out the hard drive went out on it...figures lol. It's fixed now, but while it was down I only had my ipad to post from and that was difficult at times so I just didn't post much at all...
So, now, time for the huge update on things
The last thing I really posted was about Mom's emergency surgery. She's doing great now, no after effects of that really at all...which is a great thing! She's had total knee replacement on her right leg also now which is great too!
We've moved off the farmsite, not by choice mind you, but was a change that had to be done. We now live with mom which has helped us all. Husband is working 40 hours weeks again! I also work, as a PCA, love it!
While I was off M and S started school, M in Kindergarten, S in PreK - both girls love school! M also wanted to dance so - dance away girl! Mommy will make it happen! And I did - she dances in 2 classes (will be in 3 next year) and LOVES every minute of it! She wants to be in the parade this summer and also managed to talk Mommy into the Mother/daughter Dance (i'll admit, it didnt take much for her LOL) Her JFK Dance group won 3rd place in the TWD Competitions in March! I'm so proud of her, too! Not cuz she won but cuz of the spirit in which she went in, not knowing if shed win. She told her dance team mates that "it doesnt matter it we win or not, we are all winners when we have fun." Yep, thats right guys! have fun and be winners! Who cares about the ribbons its the fun in dancing!
Lil D also started school after Christmas! We also found out his right eardrum doesnt work at all - why? lemme know when you know! the ENTs and doctors are stumped...it does totally explain his speech though! So once we figured out what we were working with, we enrolled him in PreK also - He also is getting tested to ensure that his hearing issues isnt causing him to fall behind his peers. Let's hope not! As time goes on - his hearing could get worse, it could get better, it could do nothing - we dont know...time will tell...
I also sewed a LOT while off...I mean...a LOT! Did some testers as well!
As a Girl (M) enters school she has some very essential needs...she gets a list for school supplies, but this list doesnt include the clothes she will of course need to wear! So I set to work - when your waist could fit a size 2T but height wise you need a size 10 it makes it hard to buy pants especially!
So I started with shorts:
