Happy New Year!

I haven't updated here in ages. A friend showing me his live journal prompted me to get back with it. Afterall, it has cool stuff, I write a lot and well..... Ok, it's fun.
I am having a hell of a time updating and changing the look of my LJ. Mind you, I haven't been here in SO long that it's stuck on the old format somehow. piss me off.
So this here is just a quick entry to see if when I click "UPDATE" it actually updates the colours and format changes too. Wish me luck.

Long time no write! HOLY COW!
Wow.. I can't even pick up where I left off, it was THAT long ago!
SO let's see.. .. what HAVE I been up to?

I have 2 gorgeous little girls. M'Kayla is 2 (1/18/02) and Elianna is 10 months (12/22/03). They keep my on my toes and run my ass ragged! We have a BLAST!
I will have to find out how to upload a photo or 2 somewhere...............

Life is good and busy. That goes without saying when you know I have 2 little ones to chase around! Ellie, the 10 month old, has been walking since she was 9 months old. So there's really NO rest for me during her awake hours. She finds the simplest things so full of joy..... (such as putting her hands in the dog's waterbowl and tipping it into a mass puddle. Or taking a handful of dirt and tossing it in the air. Nice eh? Hey ! who wants to babysit! ;) HEHEHEHHEHEHEH!!!

Wowza.....lots to write..... but gotta make good on a promise made to M'Kayla earlier today. GOIN' OUT FOR ICE CREAM!
bbk latah and will update then!

Wellp....here I am writing..it's been AGES since I've updated that I can hardly believe it.
I'm totally into creative scrapbooking now so that eats up a lot of the time which is Free....now that's a funny statement...FREE TIME??? With a 6 month old BABY! NOT! LOL
M'Kayla Arielle was born at St. Peters University Hospital on 18th January at 12:54 AM . She was 8 pounds 12 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. She had curly DARK hair! She still has thick curly hair but it's MUCH lighter now. She's a peach :)
Well..just like always.....she's up and waiting for me! I'd better scoot!
I'll write more when I can!

Wow..I really hate to neglect my on-line journal like I have been. But it's been a VERY VERY busy last few months.
Ok...1st up..I'm now 9 months pregnant and due in a few weeks. We've found out that we're having a girl and have decided to name her M'Kayla Arielle.
It's been a wild ride being pregnant but I'm ready to be FINISHED and have the end result in my ARMS already!
The baby's room is still being prepared, we have all the furniture, we just need to get the borders put up and get the crib set up and we're finished. It should all be done this week! (yeah right! )
Not too much is going on really. I'm keeping busy with my pen-palling and swapping. I have really become quite fond of decos and making them as nicely and creative as possible.
Um... ok..that's about it for my update today, I will DESPERATELY try to keep better tabs on my writing here in the future!
Cheers! I hope all is well!

Ok well so it's Afternoon...what do ya want from me anyway? It COULD be morning where YOU are..I dunno so I'll say "G'mornin' If I WANT!
yeah I'm kinda ornery today. I guess it's just because it's SO nice outside and I'm stuck in here working on some guy's LAME ASSED website. He keeps changing his mind on everything and then wants to add stuff where it doesn't belong. Hey..he's paying me so I really can't complain but he's a huge DOPE!
He has NO idea that things need to be in balance to look decent. He doesn't care that it'll look crappy and I'm sure as HELL not gonna put my link at the bottom of this one! hahahahahahah

Anyway....my pal, Phil called me last night and I missed his call AGAIN!!! I was out watching the fireworks. It ALWAYS happens that I miss his friggin CALLS! :( I haven't talked to him in a YEAR! Yeah, we email back and forth and message now and then but we haven't gotten to really catch up in a YEAR! I'll call him ASAP. :)

Umm today I go for my 2nd Ultrasound! YAY! I'm somewhere around 12 - 13 weeks along and that means I am thru my 1st trimester and the morning sickness should calm down SOON! YAY!! I'm SO looking forward to that! I hate the morning sickness. It's NOT always in the morning. It gets me in the late afternoon mostly, followed by late evening Heartburn!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH!!

Ok..so I'm off to have lunch with Natalie!
Have a great day

Hey!
Wow...it's been several weeks since I've updated this thing.
Let's see.......where was I?
Oh...yeah...now I remember!
Well I went to Maine for the 1st week of June as we usually do. It was real nice this year. We were supposed to have rain for the entire week but it ended up raining only the Saturday that we drove up. We really lucked out.
Kennebunkport is beautiful in early June. There aren't scads of tourists yet and the weather is still mild.
We went on a lobster boat tour. That was pretty fun. It took us around the Kennebunk River and then out and around Walkers Point. We saw good old George Senior out on his fishing boat. That was a treat for the in-laws. He's a common site for me, I've met him several times and that novelty wore off MANY years ago! They enjoyed seeing him skipping along in his boat with his secret service lemmings right behind him.
Poor Aba got a little motion sick when we were sitting idle and learning about the lobster traps. I though he was gonna hurl, but he held together pretty well! Good man! :)
The week went rather quickly. We did a fair amount of shopping and hit all the flea markets and antique stores as well.
The nightly walks on the beach were the best! My dog, Bailey, LOVES the beach and she's in heaven when we're there. She chases the waves and barks at the water and runs EVERYWHERE. It's her vacation!

Well the Pen Pal site was just updated if anyone's interested. Here's the url:My Pen Pal Site
I also posted some pen pal stuff on my club board over at My Pen Pal Club
Go take a peek if you are interested in finding a pen pal :)

Ok..so what else is new?
Ahh..yes.... I'm now 12 weeks pregnant and have NOT started to show yet. According to the ultrasound the baby is about 2 inches long! lol it's SO teeny...looks like a little peanut! They've told me that at about 18 - 20 weeks they'll do another ultrasound and that's when the sex of the baby can be determined if the baby cooperates! hahaha Well..it really doesn't matter to me if it's a boy or a girl. I'm content with either one. I do know that my father in law is wanting a grand-daughter because he's had 2 sons and he has a brother and he's ready to have a little princess to spoil :) I think that's so sweet!
I have no idea..I have no feelings as to what the sex is. Beth is convinced that it's a girl. So we'll see if she's on the mark! HA! Christine is convinced it's a boy...so I have NO IDEA. We'll see when the time comes.

Ok.. what else?
Hmmm... Natalie is seeing some Michael dude. I'm really not sure about him yet. He's rather 'odd' and "distant". He doesn't want to meet any of her friends or family. I KNOW he works outdoors all day and is hot and tired at the end of a day...but being a hermit like that is just making all of us wonder what his friggin' problem is. As long as he treats Natalie right, I have no beef with him. The MINUTE he steps out of line he's a dead man. HAHAHAH
I am an EVIL WENCH, and I take shit from NO ONE!
GOT IT?
GOOD!
See ya later

Ok get this!
I took a Home Pregnancy Test 3 days ago.... and it came up POSITIVE! I'm freaking out....I last had my cycle in March...so we've estimated that I'm in my 8th week!
The morning sickness started Monday....it was at 1st mild discomfort and then as the days go by it gets stronger and stronger. Today was the worst yet. I spent the hours between 9 AM and 3PM in the bathroom. :( That was not fun at ALL. I couldn't keep ANYTHING down. Not even 1 sip of water.
At about 2:30 I started to feel the waves of nausea subside and I ventured out to use the computer. I still wasn't interested in food, but atleast I could stand without running to the bathroom.
It's 18:34 now and I've had a little bit of supper. It's agreeing with me and I HOPE that I never get morning sickness like that ever again! EVER AGAIN!
I know that tomorrow will show the same thing....but atleast I'll be a little more prepared and have a small snack 1st thing when I wake up. I hope that'll stiffle the wretchid nausea a tad.
Ok so that's the news.
I will write more as we go along and keep a sort of "Pregnancy Journal" here.
I'm off to feed the dogs.
Ciao
