Aren't they adorable????

Happy 1 month Birthday to Faith's kittens!! I can't believe it's been a month since these adorable not so little ones were born! They are all ranging in weight between 11 and 15 ounces which for a month old is incredible. Faith is such an amazing mommy. She is starting to slowly wean them now and they have all learned how to crawl out of that box.  We finally had to put a baby gate up in our closet door way to contain the little ones.
Only one more month until we can finally place them with new owners...Anyone looking for a kitten???

Happy 3rd Birthday!!!

Happy 3rd Birthday to my favorite Nephew!!!!!

Thursday, May 13, 2010


I have been having horrid headaches for about 2 months now. Unless I find something to take that actually makes my head stop hurting it will continue to hurt..ALL the time, round the clock. I had the same headache for 3 weeks...So off to the Doctor I went. Lovely doctor I have, seriously, I love my doctor.
So about 21 days ago I went to see her. She has no clue what is causing them and referred me to a neurologist, but more about that in a minute. In addition she put me on prednisone to reduce possible inflammation in my brain, a pain medication to sleep that has to be taken every night, any where for 1 to 4 pills (25 mg a pill), and gave me a prescription for Imitrex to be taken with aleve to create Treximet (another migraine medication my insurance won't cover). So for 6 VERY long days I took the steroids, and Imitrex when needed. Along with the new medication at bedtime. So on top of my original 3 nightly medications I added in those. Thankfully my headaches went away...For about 4 days. And then they came back.
So I was taking imitrex quite a bit, sadly my insurance company will only cover 9 pills every 30 days...I ran out yesterday. So I called the doctor's office and they scheduled me to go in today. I was a little nervous about what she was going to say. Almost an hour later I walked out with 2 treximet samples, and a needle less injection of Imitrex. Oh and 4 new prescriptions. So after I picked up my prescriptions my daily pill intake is as followed:
Morning: a blood pressure/headache prevention medication & steroids
Lunch: more steroids
Dinner: nothing
Bed:Cymbalta, Prevacid, BC, steroids, blood pressure/headache prevention, and the pain medicine to sleep

She also gave me a prescription for Naproxsin to go with the Impitrex I can get next week. The next 12 days outta be fun: Hot flashes, mood swings, and dry mouth like crazy along with any new side effects that the other meds might have. Joy....NOT
BUT if this will help until I see the neurologist then I don't care, I am tired of living with headaches. Oh and I can't see the neurologist until June 18. That sucks!

I'm still here....

I know I haven't blogged in months. It's been a few crazy months....And I'm not sure when I will start blogging again. Right now I am dealing with looking for a place to live, Hayley going to her dad's on a regular basis, and just some other petty crap. But once I get things pulled back together I will be back. I promise.
I have so many things I want to blog about to....Hayley, my dad, the concert I went to...Tons of things....

Sledding pics

The girls had so much fun sledding, and I admit I went sledding too..It was so much fun!!!

Saturday, January 9, 2010


So I am not off to a good start this year, and that really doesn't surprise me in the least bit. I have been sooo tired lately that I just don't have the energy to do ANYTHING!! Including cleaning my house. However, today I feel very awake and very alert so I am hoping to get some stuff done. Laundry is a big one, its piling up quickly in this house, reorganizing the cupboard from Hell is also on that list....OH and going outside with my new camera and taking pictures of Hayley and her friend sledding. That is next on my list. I am so excited. I got my camera for Christmas and I love it!! So I will try and come back later to blog some more, and maybe put up some pictures.
OH and speaking of pictures, I want to get some scrapbooking done too! I have to completely redo Hayley's 2006 album, and I need to finish 2007 and still do 2008 and 2009..Wow, I have a lot of scrapbooking to do.Promise to explain more later!!

My 2010 Resolutions

Quit smoking
Get healthier
Be a better parent
Be a better PERSON in general

Be a better girlfriend
Deal with some issues that have been driving me nuts
Scrapbook more
Spend more time doing fun things with Hayley
Take a trip(this one is already in the works, I am sooo excited. Future blog post coming soon!)

Wow, I am sure I have more, and I know some of them are very typical but they are all things that I want need to do. I have plans to do some of these. For example, we are going to start eatting healthier, watching our portion sizes and excercising more. For Christmas I got a wireless fit thing. Its not the wii (which I am hoping to buy soon) but in the mean time it will work. I also got Biggest Loser Boot Camp DVD I am so excited to try it. The only downfall is our subflooring in our house is starting to crumble and I am afraid to do any major activity on it. Hopefully that will be fixed soon....The odds of that are slim to none so I see a move in my future....
*Sigh* My carpal tunnel is driving me nuts these days and it makes it hard to type for long periods of time so I will talk to everyone later!!!

2009 in a nutshell continued

  • Nate was sentanced to 180 days on the 5th of April.
  • Towards the middle of the month I found my self in a situation that I should have never been in. It went against all my morals and  to this day can not believe it happened
  • It was very short lived well not too short lived but short enough. 
  • Going back in my blog I talk about it, and I know it went on for over a month
  • It was part of the reason I started to question my marriage
  • Hayley and I went on vacation to Tennessee, I hated driving in the mountains but we had a blast and got to see very good friends of ours. 
  • While in Tennessee I made up my mind finally that I needed to divorce Nate. I don't know if I admitted it to anyone, even on here but before I left to come home to Michigan I knew that I needed a divorce
  • Hayley started T-Ball!! She had 3 games in the month of May and she did beautiful! She already can't wait to play again. 
  • The most important thing happened in the month of May.....
    • I met Scott! It was the best thing that happened to me. I am very grateful for him and what he has been thru with me.
    • I knew shortly after I met him that we clicked instantly and that we really had a chance.
  • Hayley finished T-ball
  • I filed for divorce, sadly I had no way to serve him his papers so I knew I had to wait for him to get out.
  • Scott & I (along with Stephanie) went to Carson City and attended the wedding and reception for our good friend Sylvia =)
  • Almost everyone that was there, not counting the kids, was drunk. Except me, cuz I had to drive that nite.
  • Scott told me he loved me for the very first time, it was 9 days from our 1 month anniversary..There were a few other things that happened surrounding that event that actually really were funny. 
  • I turned 27 on the 13th, and had a nice little party with the important people in my life.
**As June was ending and July was starting I was starting to get more and more nervous. Nate's scheduled outdate was July 8 and has it got closer I started having panic attacks

  • 4th of July me, Scott & Hayley went to Grandville and watched the parade and hung out in that area, went thru the craft fair, had an elephant ear, walked around, and then left and went and got KFC for lunch and ultimately ended up going back to my house for a few hours to wait for the fireworks.
  • After that we went and picked Steph up and ended up getting pretty drunk, it was tons of fun, well what I remember.
  • The 8th arrived, I had already told him that I was not picking him up, and that his stuff would be outside 
  • I had a terrible panic attack and then ended up at Scott's house sleeping
  • My mom served him his papers
  • He defaulted on the 29th of July so finally we could schedule a final hearing
  • We went to Michigan's Adventure
  • It was a fairly boring month
  • Hayley started 2nd grade
  • I found our house and we got accepted here just before Hayley's birthday party
  • Hayley turned 7!!!! Wow is she growing fast!
  • My divorce was finalized on the 14th, the same day that we got the keys to our new house-Our new beginning!
  • My engine blew in my car 
  • Just a normal month, except we didn't have a car
  • I had an upper G.I. thing done because of my heartburn
  • We went out with my mom to find pumpkins, that was a fun nite!
  • Halloween we went to Scott's mom's house and went trick or treating with his nephew CJ
  • Scott & I celebrated 6 months together
  • Thanksgiving we went to Scott's aunt's house-that was lots of fun!
  • Went to conferences at Hayley's school, I am so proud of my munchkin!
Which brings us to December, Much of Dec. was spent getting ready for Christmas, and just enjoying being a family. Also we finally got a car. It was almost 3 months after my car died. We were very very happy!!!We had 5 Christmas events in total-Scott's dad's family, Christmas morning as a family, Christmas with Scott's mom, Christmas at Scott's aunt's, and Christmas with my mom and brother. It was lots of fun and Hayley got a lot of new things to play with. Scott's big gifts were the Rock Band from his mom and the tickets to a Pistons game for him and his brother from me. And that brings us to New Years Eve...which in its self is a whole other post, so maybe tomorrow. It gives me topics to blog about so maybe I don't miss any days. I do want to do a resolutions type post too so expect that soon!!!

Wow, I just read thru my year and I realized I am a boring person and that for being almost 30 I do not act it at all. So maybe I need to think about changing that!!!!

2009 in a nutshell

So jumping on the bandwagon, I am doing a review of the last year. Plus I am hoping to do another blog thing, and blog the entire month of Jan. So, lets talk 2009....

  • Wow, I don't really remember last Jan. I do remember ringing in 2009 with my mom, Hayley and Nate. It was the first time Hayley ever stayed up for it and she fell asleep 5 minutes after the ball dropped.
  • I had two surgeries, to have my teeth taken out. They were the most uncomfortable procedures I have ever been thru. Not only were the surgeries uncomfortable the recovery was horrible.
  • Feb. was the worst month of the year.  
  • Not only did Nate steal from me, and my mom, but he also went to jail. 
  • His bond was set so high that I had no way of bailing him out. 
  • Hayley started a special reading group in hopes of helping her learn to read better
  • I slowly started to adjust to visiting the jail once a week to see the man that I was trying to forgive
  • On the 13th Stephie and I went and I got my first tattoo

See the problem with it????? Of course when I got it I didn't see a problem with it. Now of course I have serious problems with it.

Okay, Okay I know I am only at March but I can't keep my eyes open, way too much partying last nite.....
So I will finish tomorrow.
