My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Soy Free - Or Not
So I finally got the protein powder in and started Alysa today on her new soy-free diet. Well, amazing as it is, there is one thing she won't drink. That is a mixture of rice milk, coconut milk and protein powder. Keep in mind that the rice milk and protein powder is vanilla flavored. It is a thicker drink than her soy milk, but still. So for lunch, I diluted it with soy milk - still no luck. This should be fun transitioning her over.

It's a rainy miserable day here and I'm trying to get some things done. I have a ton to get up on eBay and I can't seem to get the time. But, I did make some progress. I had sorted all the clothes into auction lots about a week ago and put them all into bags. Yesterday, I finally got all the boxes out and moved them into their shipping boxes. So, I went from this...


It might not look like much of an improvement, but believe me, it is! Now I’m working my way through photographing them and then will move onto typing descriptions. I’m hoping to get a few up a day this week. I have 17 auctions. That’s a lot to manage, so I don’t want them all ending the same day. Yikes! But in the fall, I sold 11 auctions and cleared $73 after all the fees, so it’s worth it.

I also must mention here that my camera is still not working right. I’m quite annoyed at this point. Kodak suggested that my memory card was bad? Not sure if that would be so sporadic. I don’t know. I have to call them back and see what needs to be done. Sending it back is on the low end of my list. The place didn’t fix it the first time and I don’t want to be w/o my camera again. If you ask me, they should just send me a new one – it’s the easiest and probably the cheapest thing to do for them and me! I can’t imagine it’s cheap to pay for a repair.

On a lighter note – last night, J was fixing Kayla’s bed frame and the girls were having a blast playing with his tools. I gave the girls bedtime warnings and when I finally told Alysa it was time to pick out her book, she was very upset. I told her it was bedtime and she said, “No Mommy, I’m awake!” If only I could get 24 hours in her head...

Good luck on the Ebaying I've done a bit of it myself and it does get a little overwhelming... Oh to have the energy now that I had when I was little - wouldn't that be great!
