Feast of Tabernacles

Heartburn Anyone?

My heartburn treatment collection

Whoever said that you wouldn't have pregnancy heartburn after gallbladder removal was insane. I have finally found Prilosec after suffering severe acid reflux for the past couple of months. Hopefully it will continue to work until the baby is born or its on to prescriptions.

Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend we visited a local pumpkin patch. Yes, it really was warm enough to wear short sleeves. I don't know when it will finally feel like fall around here.

We Love Crazy Hair Days

Obama in Ft. Collins

I thought for about 10 seconds of going just to say that I saw Obama, but I'm sure I would have thrown up within 10 minutes and probably would have started a fight. I already have to fight my instincts to ram the back of cars with Obama stickers and run over his yard signs.

Lucky Paul

Paul signed up to work for a shift at the event center before knowing what the event was. We found out Friday that it is for Sarah Palin's speaking engagement. I could have gotten tickets through church, but I couldn't see taking Ethan with me. Paul will have to fill me in when he gets home. It sounds like so far it is a zoo, since they gave 10,000 tickets out to an event that only holds 7000 people.

Midwives Are Funny

I went to the midwives today for my 28 week appointment (can you believe it?) and saw Heidi, who delivered Shauna's daughter Isabelle. I was reminded of a previous visit when I told her that I breastfed Laina and Ethan for close to two years a piece. Later she asked how Shauna was and I told her that Shauna was now homeschooling Isabelle. It was then that she asked me if our parents were hippies. I about rolled off the table laughing.

Dishwasher Update

Yeah!. I finally have my dishwasher. Paul was able to move the pipe all by himself and install the dishwasher. (Poo poo to Lowes for not giving us a refund on the installation even though they didn't end up doing it). I have clean dishes and I didn't realize how much better the kitchen would look with a dishwasher with a front cover on it. (The piece of metal that covered the inner workings of the last dishwasher kept falling off, so we just went without it).

Good News/Bad News

The good news: I have a new dishwasher.

The bad news: It's now sitting in the middle of the kitchen waiting for a hot water pipe to be moved before I can install it.

If You're Nervous About the Economy and Elections

The Great White Hunter Has a Protege

Laina, Paul and Laurin went out duck hunting opening day on Saturday. Laurin killed the only duck she shot at and hit it with one shot. Laina came along and slept in the bottom of the boat the majority of the time. (Does anyone else think it's just wrong to be able to wear a tank top on the first weekend in October?)

In Case You Were Wondering

I haven't posted for so long I figured that I better let people (whoever in the world you may be) that I am still alive and have just been super busy. I have gotten a very part-time job working at the daycare at church on some Tuesday and Thursday mornings, so that has kept me busy. Laurin finally got done with her volleyball season. Sadly they only won one game all year, but I was very proud of the improvements all the girls made as this was the first time any of them had even played volleyball. Susie is getting better each week, but she still likes to chew things up much to my dismay. Paul is getting ready for the opening duck season this weekend, so I"m sure I'll be a hunting widow soon. Laina is doing well, but has started to pick up her sister's bad homework habits. Neither of them can seem to remember to turn homework in even though they have completed it. Ethan is doing well too. I think that he likes being the one who gets all the attention when his sisters are at school. We'll see how that goes when the baby is born.
