Every year since the boys were born 9 weeks premature, my mom has walked in the March of Dimes March for babies. The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality, and the money raised will support lifesaving research, services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start.
I’ve got a lot to write about but don’t know what to start with or what people even find interesting… I could write about my mom’s visit, canceling the kids’ swim lessons, my sudden problem with almost falling asleep when I drive (!), how I’ve managed to continue to keep my house clean, why I quit taking Ace to early intervention services (that post is long overdue), our guitar hero adventures (complete with video), the felt food I’ve been learning to make… If you have something in particular you want me to write about, post a comment and let me know. I’m sleepy and I’ve got brain overload tonight.
I forgot to mention that we are in Canada for the holiday, so I won’t be updating much until I get back.

I need to update our family website tomorrow…. it’s going to take me a while because there are so many GREAT pictures!! I also got a Flip video recorder so I can make better videos for posting. I have a lot to upload and show off!
And, in case you didn’t notice the comments on my last post, my mom bought a ticket to come to our house in January. She was just tormenting me when she was saying she wasn’t coming.

I’ve tried everything I can to find a way to either get to Pittsburgh for Christmas or get my mom out here and it seems there’s a “problem” with everything I’ve come up with. Sometimes, logic and reason suck.
This is missed time with my family that I can’t get back and I so wanted to share it. I know we can do a visit in a couple of months, but the kids will all be so changed by then. It’s now that I wanted to share. I hate distance, finances, jobs, school and everything else that gets in the way.
The past few days have been busy, and I’ve also been having a lot of headaches and neck pain (thanks, Nissan Xterra Lady). Almost all of the gifts are wrapped — and the rest will be done tonight after Skip brings home some more wrapping paper. He’s also picking up the last of the gifts today (those Easy Bake Ovens are hard to find!). Continue reading
