military preschool

Is there one? And can I send my 2 yr old too?

Moving on.... Ruby is scared of rough loud boy. He is a true boy. Throwing things, loud, hitting, pushing. I think I need to read a book on boys. Night and day! HAHA. I think the biggest thing is that he did not have siblings. So he has not had to share and get along with anybody his age. So that has been interesting..... And my girls would never do anything to instigate him..... NOT!!! sigh..... I've got my work cut out for me.

canning and sleepy eyelids

So tonight I canned 4 pints of Bruschetta in a Jar and 2 pints of Dilly Beans. I only did a few Dilly Beans because I wasn't sure if I liked them. No use in making a ton if nobody will eat them. I also froze 3 quarts of green beans. I have been trying to decide what to do with all the green beans. My mom wanted me to plant them and she is already done with them! I am the only one that likes them here. I canned a bunch for a friend. Then I gave a bunch away. Then some went to waste.... BAH! There is going to be a bunch more in a couple of weeks. I hate wasting! I want to just rip them out so my tomatoes have more room since they are basically on top of them now! Which speaking of tomatoes I have a TON! And they did great this year. I am not sure why I have the luck with tomatoes, but I seem to. So I plan to make speghetti and pizza sauce again this year. And I was thinking maybe some tomato soup.... or just plain tomato sauce. And also I have to do just some plain old yummylicious stewed tomatoes. Lip smacking good! Tomorrow I will try to freeze some zucchini, can the tomatoes I have left to do, and make/can garlic dill relish. Do you think I can do it? (neither do I!)

The gaurdian at lidem is (the lawyer for the foster boy) is coming tomorrow. I may have to run to Hastings' to get a piece of paper signed AND go to Ionia! Busy, busy, busy!

Also I just ate a piece of chocolate cake. Was it good? Oh yes! Am I going to be sick? Definitely. Do I care? NO! Am I going to care in about 15 minutes? Absolutely.

The night

Well, we made it through the night. He wanted his mommy alot. But he was sooooo tired. So I held him until he fell asleep and then I put him in his crib. I am pretty sure he has NEVER been in one. He seems to like the couch. So we will slowly be working our way to the crib. At this point I am not going to traumitize him any more by making him stay in a crib if he doesn't want too. Otherwise he is a pretty good boy. So far....

Update, update.....and update.

I finally went to the doctor. It took me awhile. I'm don't really like to go to doctors like over half of America.... They seem to think it was my gallbladder as many had already suggested to me. So I had an ultrasound on my gall bladder on Wednesday. And as per tradition I had to wait another 2 days to get the results. Today they came back "fine". Whatever that means. So, now I have to go get a HIDA scan. yayyyyyyy...... That is Monday.

Also amidst all this we are taking in a little boy about 18 months as a foster charge! I do not know anything about him yet. I don't even know his name! Randy is bringing him home right now. So if you all are wondering that makes almost 1 yr old, 18 month old, 2 3/4 yr old, and a 4 yr old. And also yes I think I am crazy.

OK, so I'm not hot just my weight is melting! 23 lbs down. I am able to eat more stuff. However nothing very exciting. So I am sure the pounds will keep melting away. Which is good for me! Bad for the foodie in me. Like for instance when Randy 'encouraged' me to try some dairy queen ice cream. Bad idea. Very bad.

Lanna used the loo twice yesterday. Not so much today. BUT I am holding out hope. She is going to 3 in Jan. It is so embarrassing! She is just so stubborn. And she won't sit still for 2 seconds to actually pee in the potty.

Ruby is going to be 1 yrs old in about 2 weeks. WAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I am sooooo sad. Time went by so fast. I am having mommy guilt because I didn't get as many pictures and this and that. sigh.... Oh well. Maybe I will just hide all there stuff and never show them! The will never know!
