i promised myself i wouldn't whine

I had every intention of getting on here today and whining like a little baby. But, after looking at these pics of my wonderful family, I've decided against it. So, I'll just be giving some family updates today to keep my mind off of the jealousy/bitterness that is engulfing my brain right now.

I made Sophia an appt. with the opthamologist for March 2. I'm sure everythings fine, but I just want to be sure. We've always joked about her "clumsiness" but it's getting to the point of worry for me recently. She will literally walk right into a wall, head on. Then she looks around like "where'd that come from". And if she looks at the ground, you can bet her face is gonna be planted on it in about a second. And she's not doing it on purpose or to be funny. We used to always compare her to my moms neighbors son b/c she acts exactly like he used to when he was her age. But then my mom just told me yesterday that they just found out he is almost completely blind in one eye (he's 4 now). So I just want to get her checked now, so that we dont let it go to the point where it cant be helped, if there is something wrong. And I just remembered this morning that they wanted to see maria every year b/c of her ROP history. So I think I'll just try to add her on to the appt that day and get it all over with. Also, I picked up my new glasses the other day. They're definitely different. but I actually really like the change.

Jack's doing pretty well. He is having some trouble with reflux, so thats making him a little unhappy. I'm sure if you've had it, you know why. The Dr. said he would give him some zantac, so I guess that's what we'll do, b/c the thickit didnt work.

On another note, I've decided it's time to start trying to lose this baby (X3) weight. I'm really hoping to look good for when we get our family pictures taken in a few months. But I'm sure I wont be done by then.
My moms having a little get-together at her house this weekend for my family to meet Jack. I'm looking forward to that, though I hope ppl arent offended if i ask them to purell before holding him. I'm too much of a germaphobe to just hand him around ya know.
Well, thats pretty much it for this week.

and we're off...

So, this is my first blog here on blogger. I'm not really sure if anyone will even read it. But it'll be nice to have a place to vent a little and talk about what's going on in my life at the moment. Here are a few things on my mind today...

First, I am struggling with figuring out how to do a slideshow that i can copy to a cd/dvd and have it have music in the background. I did find some software that looked good. buuuutt....its $70 and you have to order online (which i am against given our current identity theft issues) grrr. This is irritating me to no end. Its supposed to be a gift for Josh for our anniversary, so i really hope i can get it figured out. My other option is doing one of those books on I can't believe our anni is in about 2 wks. (4 yrs!!!). I'm still going through pics and scanning and uploading them, which is quite time-consuming. But i really think he'll like it.

The second thing of importance to mention is a bit of local celebrity invading our family. Josh's brother and his girlfriend are going to be on the Dr. Phil show on Friday for his Valentines Day show. Apparently she's getting a makeover. yah... idk what else to say on that subject. Well I've got some things to say, I'm just not going to say them. But you all should start warming up your dvr's and tivos and pop some corn to prepare for the big event. LOL.

and about that freakshow mom, er [cough] the "octuplet mom" ;). Do i need to even say ANYTHING. I'm pretty sure that Dr. needs to lose his, I'm definitely sure. Honestly though I feel bad for those kids. She can't even afford to take care of the 6 she already had, now add another 8 preemie newborns to the mix....oh God...I can just imagine the insanity. Not to mention, how can she possibly pay enough attention to each of 14 children under age 7? Grrrr. And to think, there are soooo many people out there that can't have children at all that want them. ugh. Now I'm just getting irritated, so I'll stop.
