Recipe Blog Update

I updated my recipe blog. A new fresh look to it and I also hope to get more recipes up again soon. I can't stand the pile I have stacking up it's just that I need the time! So come and check out my recipe blog where I am posting all of our family recipes that we like, that I also modify for our liking that I have taken out of magazines, recipe cards from the grocery store, etc. I just hate having all different size papers, loosing them and not having them when I do a last minute dinner, snack, etc at my parents or friends house. This recipe blog allows me to access my recipes that we love from anywhere!!

Set for Friday

I had my pre-op today at the doctors office and at Winnie-Palmer for my surgery on Friday morning. I will be having a D7C done as well as the Novasure Ablation. Things went pretty smooth today, even when I had to get blood taken - I didn't faint!! Lots of paperwork of course and things I need to do tomorrow night, that will not be fun.

Please keep me in your prayers Friday morning that everything goes well, no complications and I can eventually be pain free each month! I will let you know how everything goes on Friday.

Brinlee and her first ER

Yes you read that right Brinlee had her first trip to the ER this morning. While picking up in the kitchen for the day, which I wanted to get out the door right after breakfast to get the tires rotated then back home to get things done, Brinlee had to hurt herself!

Jay was out getting milk since we go through it like water runs in the faucet. I hear her screaming in her room. I go in there and she has her finger smashed in the hinge of the cabinet door on her dresser! I had to 1/2 close the door to get her finger out. She had the door all the way open and her finger was squished in between!!

She wouldn't let me touch it, put ice on it or anything. Poor thing was shaking, screaming and then was ok for a little bit until she looked at it, tried to move it or saw the blood starting. It was cut on top and underneath. I called Jay told him what happened and said I was taking the kids to my parents so I could take her to the ER, I wanted to make sure that it wasn't broken. Jay had to go to work, so I put the twins shoes on, in jammies and headed up to my parents house.

My Mom came with the the ER with me, since Brinlee can be a handful in these situations. She was terrified of the ER, or letting anyone touch her. We got right in since it was around 8am so it was nice. Freezing the the darn hospital though come on! Of course you have like 50 people coming in to talk to you, I don't even know who was the doctor. They gave her a bag of goodies and she LOVED the stickers. I think we played with those for 45min, and watched Playhouse Disney.

While waiting for the x-ray people to come for her they gave her some Motrin finally for the pain. By that time she was getting tired and it knocked her out, YES! Bad for my arm though. It was good timing even though it took a long time because she slept through the x-rays. Hard to x-ray those little fingers!

Good news is that nothing was broken, just the skin was cut really good and swollen. They don't know about the growth plate in the finger. The doctor said she will favor that finger for a few days, if she is still not moving it or really favoring it mid-week to do a follow up with the pedi. So we spent a few hrs at the ER, wasn't too bad I do have say.

We cleaned and bandaged up her finger, and tonight she took a bath with the stuff off of it and seemed very happy! I think she will be fine and hopefully learned her lesson of where NOT to put her fingers. She is definitely our little explorer!

Here are some pictures:

Washer Update 3

OK well on last Friday never heard anything from Lowes. SO I packed up the kids and picked up my Mom and headed straight there to see if I could get an answer. The guy I was talking to during the week was out sick, but I talked to the store manager. Quickly explained my situation and he seemed to not really care what it was but immediately said lets get you a new washer.

He took the information on what washer I had and scheduled a swap out for that afternoon/evening. I didn't have to do a thing but be at home by 5pm. The same installation guy showed up and was great. Took out the old washer, put in the new one and have a nice day!

So if you ever have problems, or are thinking of getting new appliances go to LOWES! They have great customer service and care about their customers. They listen. I always feel odd when I go into a Home Depot but Lowes is so friendly with great prices.

So we have been sinning around again with our washer and dryer. It's nice to be able to do laundry again. Now to fill out the paperwork fr Whirlpool to get my money for the mattress pad that was ruined.

3, 2, 1 LIFTOFF!

What a great way to end our Easter. On Sunday we decided to go ahead and head to the coast at the weeee hours of the morning to see Space Shuttle Discovery launch. The weather was going to be perfect, and living right here in FL so close why not go and experience it once before there are no more.

So I spent the night at my parents house with the kids on Sunday night. Jay had to work on Monday so we were very disappointed that he wasn't going to be able to make it. Good things is that he has seen a shuttle launch in person before so he was all for us going and experiencing it for ourselves. We still missed him. Anyway...we got up at 1:30am and were out the door with the kids in tow at 2:15am. It was a 1hr 20min drive to Titusville. At least this time it wasn't like 30 degrees outside.

We got to Space View Park by about 3:40am, well a side little part of it with the same view that most locals go to, its less crowded, but still packed! My Mom, Brinlee and I staked out a place and relaxed. We had over 2 hours to wait. Brinlee was really good and was a hoot! I wish I took video of her. Quinn, Bella and Gramps stayed in the van and watched a movie until later. They joined us on the blanket at about 5:30am. They both hid under their blankets for awhile then played some games on our phones to pass the time.

We had a wonderful guy next to us who knew a lot about the stars and launches and such. So we heard some great info. One really cool thing that he knew was that at around 6:08am the ISS you'd be able to see pass under the moon and over the shuttle launch site. TRULY BREATHTAKING! I swear I videotaped this, but for some reason my camera didn't. It looked like a start or plane moving across the sky really fast.

Then only a few minutes later Shuttle Discovery started it's journey. Words can not express what it is like to see it in person. So cool the way the sky lite up, my body was shaking I was so excited and in aww! (Part of the reason why I missed the first second of the shuttle actually taking off on the camera, I was trying to watch it!) Not until minutes later did you FEEL and HEAR the actual rumble from it taking off. You can hear it in the second video part if you listen closely.

I have always loved seeing the launches on TV or from our front lawns here in FL thinking that was amazing, but to be that close and see and feel the launch....AWESOME!! I am very happy we took the kids to see it. They might not remember it, but thanks to technology today I hope they will be able to watch it over and over again. To say they were there for one of the last few launches, have pictures and video will stay in history forever. The long journey home was horrible, but thinking back to why we drove out there to see the launch just brushes those 4.5hrs away to the waste side. Who cares!

So after reading this very very very long post, I do have pictures and video of the launch to share with you.

Washer update 2

Here is an update....

ON Wednesday I called Whirlpool and they are sending me property damage forms so I can get a check for the mattress pad. Meanwhile I call back the repair place to get them to order the part needed. Well now their distributor doesn't have the part and they need to try to get it from Whirlpool, which could take 7 days. WTH? I have 3 kids and no working washer. (He said we could use it but I'm not risking a flood in my home.) They will call when it comes in, and they have to take the entire washer apart to repair. Though he doesn't even know what was missing? Strange to me.

So I then call Lowe's and talk to the appliance people, tell them the story. Even tell them I can bring the pictures in. The guy was very understanding and said that he is getting a shipment in tomorrow (Thurs), will check them all then call me Thursday and hopefully get a swap out with a new one on Friday! He said you can't be without a washer with 3 little ones. THANK YOU!! I can't wait to do laundry again!!

Thursday...Never got a phonecall, so I called back and left a message because the guy I spoke to was gone for the day. Great! Good thing was that we were out for half the day with my parents celebrating my Dad's birthday and my Mom took some of our laundry home to wash for us.

Now here it is Friday, almost 1 week without a correct washer, and called Lowe's and no one is in yet. UGH!! I'll let you know what happens.
