camping...... why?

So I have been roped into camping..... again. Did I not say last time I would not do it again? I swear I did. Well, Pilot and I are apparently going to take his grandma's motor home to a rustic campground. We will be spending 2 nights. Alone. No. Kids. I am having slight anxiety over leaving them for this long. I miss them already. But GG is going to be watching them. She is very capable and I am positive they will be fine. I just don't want them to think I abandon them. Ok, so I am being over dramatic. I know. I just hope all goes ok with the camping. I told Pilot that I would not be doing anything. I would planting my butt on a seat/bed/blanket and reading/sleeping. That was the only thing I would be expected to do. He said ok. I bought a book and I am bringing a lounge chair.

In other news, LPs hearing was yesterday. It sucked canal water. I was not happy with the way it went. Biomom is doing everything right "on paper". So they have nothing to fight back with. I can't tell you how it hurts me to think that LP would leave our family. She still has a good 8 months to prove herself. I try not to freak out about anything yet. This is the part about foster parenting that I hate. Also there is a family member in another state that they are thinking about sending LP to as well. I am not happy.

In other other news, LPs pediatric cardio appt. was yesterday as well. They think that Zoey is doing ok as long as she is gaining weight appropiately and breathing fine they will wait until she is a year old to do the surgery. So I guess that is good. I can't imagine having a 1 year old in a hospital room! That will be something to look forward to.....

Canning, canning and more canning

It seems like I am doing all kinds of canning this year. Or maybe its because I am more busy it is more of a deal. Either way, I will be happy this winter when I have canned tomatoes and beans from the garden. And frozen corn as well. I would really like to can some peaches, pears and applesauce this year too. But I may be asking to much of myself! We will see. I can only do what I can do!

In other news, I have been up since 3am this morning. Four cups of coffee later at 10am I was headed to the city for a birthday present for my sister and toilet paper. Hey when you are out it really sucks! I guess I also needed formula for LP. She has been super cranky with her teeth coming in. Oh well, she will live just like the rest of us. And I suppose I will too.....

I just ate to many dove chocolate minis. I didn't think it was possible, but my guts are telling me otherwise. Sorry, guts, I probably will do it again.

Can I Whine please?

I am so tired. I think I could sleep for a week. I have a cold. My body has decided that it hates me. My cat and dog are mad because they know its getting to be fallish out. So they have taken up shifts bugging me to maximize their torture. Its raining out which really bums me out. LP and LM have taken up tag teaming nap routines. One goes down and the other wakes up.

EVERYBODY is going to bed early tonight. Even the dog and cat.

Molly homemaker continues

I made homemade pizza sauce and, sit down, canned it myself. I have also canned tomatoes and beans this year. And have froze corn. I will have more tomatoes to can in the future as well. My mom and I planted a garden this spring. So we will have a lot of tomatoes still. My mom likes green beans so we will be doing more of those to.

LP has been not sleeping well at all lately. I am hoping that it is a phase. I am also hoping that it is not another ear infection. Mostly for the fact that it is Friday and I don't want to end up in the ER with a screaming cranky baby. I think I may have slept about 4 hours last night..... maybe.

I will leave you with this for now- ( I had come in with canning jars and started putting them in the dish washer to be washed. I talking a mile a minute and laughing. And also it was about 1pm)

My mom- Ok, I want to know what new drug you are on.

Me- coffee. 4 Cups. (saying this very fast)

My mom- (Staring at me, eyes raised) Wow. (Goes back to snapping beans)

internet shopping

It's addicting. I can't stop. But I have found some really good deals! I got some really cute things from the Children's Place and Gymboree! I mean the 5 dollars in shipping and handling is easily less then if I went all the way to a big city. So............ really i am saving money. So there.

Molly homemaker

I made my own baby food. I am so proud of myself! It really was easy. I made my nephew's baby food back when he was a baby. But I have been to busy for me to make my babies. Last night I backed some squash. This morning I scrapped them out boiled some chicken and apples. I put them all together and pureed. Easy enough. I had bought some freezy containers for baby food so I plopped it in them and stuck them in the freezer! All ready for dinner times!
