oh boy

Mark had a dream that our next child will be a boy, he dreamt Nicole was a girl before I had the gender ultrasound so we'll see if he is actually right again whenever we try again. Oh and his aunt had a dream that Nicole was a girl and that I was going to have a boy next too.

another week

So Mark's been working at Dicks for over a week now. I forgot how hard it is doing everything myself. I think I got quite a bit accomplished this weekend considering I had to take care of Nicole and had no one to entertain her so I could get stuff done.
We finally got our tax return in the bank account. That will take a little load off my shoulders for now.
I finished the 2nd book in Nora Roberts Bride Quartet series. Now I have to wait for the 3rd one to come out. I think it's due to come out on the 27th? I'm not a fan of Nora Roberts but this might just change that.
I started making a bucket list. I'm about halfway done. Still have a long ways to go but I'll get it done and post it once its done.
Physical therapy for my back is going good. I'm starting to get a little relief from it but I'm still having my bad days (or weekends like this past one). I'll be happy when there is no more back pain!
That's all for today. :)

pen pal

So I've been lurking around on for about 3 weeks or so now. I saw someone made a thread about penpals and wanting one. I haven't had a penpal since high school. I figured why the hell not. It'll give me something to do that I haven't done in awhile. So I decided to leave messages on a few people's pages to see if they wanted to be penpals. Only one response so far and I can't wait to get to know her better. She seems totally awesome and she's a military wife too! Go check out her blog here: If you head on over tell her Jen(her new pen pal) sent ya!

let's just say

this weekend is not one I wish to repeat anytime soon. I'm not going to go into details for the privacy of my relationship but I was stupid and I screwed up which I am more than willing to admit. The only thing I'll offer up is that I need to work on communicating with Mark more. Maybe it's time to try the Love Dare again...

Friday night my friend Jess came over and she dyed my hair for me. It's now a dark brown red color. I need to get a picture of it. I really like it. I think it suits me really well.
Saturday I went for my physical therapy consult, he really thinks he can help my back which is a huge plus. I'm going 3 times a week to start out and going from there. Huge plus is there is NO COST!
Sunday Mark, Nicole and I went up to visit my gramma. She is not doing well. She has psoriasis of the liver which is weird because she doesn't drink at all and never has. She hasn't been eating and has been sleeping alot. I have a feeling it won't be too much longer till she is gone. It was really tough for me seeing her that way. She basically raised me and is like a mother to me.
Oy I'm sure it's going to be a long week too.

Happy Monday!

This is the first Monday in 3 weeks that it hasn't been raining. Thank goodness for that! This area sure does not need anymore rain!
Got a great deal on diapers this weekend at CVS. 2 packs of Huggies Little Movers and a 20 oz Sprite for under $5 plus $5 in ECB back so basically free! I'm starting to switch Nicole to the Huggies Little Movers as they tend to hold more (esp overnight) and they have much better coupons than Pampers.
Nicole has been super cranky lately. I think she's cutting quite a few teeth including molars. It probably hasn't been helping that she has been crying herself to sleep lately because she just doesn't want to go down for bed. Nothing has changed in her routine so I'm not sure of the issue. Hopefully it gets better soon.
Overall it was a good weekend. We enjoyed the weather. Mark and I went for a ride on the bike, I had forgotten how much fun it was to be on the back of a bike. I haven't been on one in almost 2 years.
