Beans, beans the magical fruit...

This blog isn't really about beans but I couldn't think of anything else to put up there! I don't know why I find it so hard to find things to blog about. You would think, with me loving to talk and blab on as much as I do, I would have plenty to write about. For some reason i just can't get myself to talk about all the little mundane things that go on around here. Maybe I feel like if I did, people would realize how non exciting my life really is!!
Anyway, here are some random things that have happend and things we have been up to:

1. For some reason Little Girl keeps choking on everything I give her..choking to the point of puking the entire contents of her stomach back up onto her highchair tray. And not just in the highchair but on the road as well, when we are driving..(trying desperatly to get to the post office to buy stamps in time to get back home and mail the bill thats due in exactly two days. They had sent it back to me because I had a 39 cent stamp on it, I needed two more cents to mail it...) And she wasn't even eating anything in the car, it must have been waiting in the back of her throat for that exact minute in time! And then as I am frantically looking for a side road to pull off onto so I can save my child from sure death by puking..I find the perfect spot..a mud hole!! Oh sure..it looked dry enough when I drove onto it, but as soon as I stepped out I almost did the splits! One foot slid one way, and one foot the other way! I couldn't even walk because my feet kept sinking and sliding all over the place! ( meanwhile Eden is still choking and puking) So I hop back in the car, with a grimace for all the mud being spread and ground into my carpet, and slam on the gas. My wheels turn and turn and spray mud ALL OVER THE CAR!! I did manage to free myself and drive about ten feet down the way where it wasn't muddy. Finally I got to Eden who had, by this time, stopped her seemingly endless fountain of bile. I took one look at her and almost wanted to puke myself. It was bad people, bad! And then to top it off, I had just cleaned out the car not two weeks before. There was nothing in there! As I looked futilely around for something to wipe her off with I remembered that The Man had put an "emergency Kit' of diapers and wipes in the trunk. It took forever to wipe it all up with those little things!! ( keep in mind here that I am still racing time to get my letter mailed...) Thankfully there was a pair of shorts and a sweater in the trunk as well, so she didn't have to go into the post office practically naked and there wasn't a line when I got there, so I did beat the Post Lady to the mailbox. But I am seriously wondering if there is something wrong with Little Girl, like some weird gag refelx thing. It sucks. I basically have to give her one little peice of food at a time and it can't be anything that could be sticky in her throat! I tell ya, the things us moms have to go through! (ok, that was really long....)
2. We have started going to the library and then to free luch at the park. For those of you who don't know what free luch at the park is (husband!) its where you go to the park and they give you a sack lunch for free! Its a summer program sponsored by the schools. Its really cool. I take the kids and they get to play at the park and I don't have to make lunch, its really a win-win stituation. We have also just gotten a membership at the YMCA. It so cool! We went swimming with the kids and they loved it! Well, The Boy did any way. Little Girl wasn't to happy about the water, and all the people, and all the noise. But after a little while she stopped crying and gave me her, " I will tollerate it if I have to" look and just let me hold her. They have two big water slides ( which The Boy went down..once and that was it, but still..) and a lazy river and all kinds of water features. It really is nice. And now I can go work out whenever I want to and that is the best part! I can't wait to get started and get all of this chocolate off of my hips, thighs and butt!!

So thats about all that is really happening around here. There is probably more, but this one has gotten too long already! You guys probably stopped reading about halfway through, but thats ok! I do have some pictures I have to go and develop so keep an eye out for those. I experimented a little bit with black and white, so we'll see how they turn out. Oh, and since angela keeps starting all these funds for people in her family, I have decided to start my own, for myself. Its a " get Ashleigh a digital camera so she can take lots of pictures and her husband can't get mad about wasting film and then she can post them and send them via email a heck of a lot faster than she does now" fund. I know..its a good cause right?


  1. The joy of these funds is that each dollar helps. If you send me your paypal address, I'll pitch in a dollar. Its not much but heck. Its a start. Anyway, We get the random pukeing thing but not like Eden. Ask her pediatrician about it if you're stressed. Anyway I LOVE FREE LUNCHES! There are also breakfasts and hot lunches at some schools so check that out too!

  2. Hi!! Love the blog...and wanted to check up on you! Thanks for posting a comment on mine. Anyway, things are going...we are moving to Cleveland next year and then we'll see from there. We'll be in Utah/Idaho in August...so come to REXBURG :)
