FINALLY I AM A MOMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I am finally a mommy. We have 3 children placed in our home at the time. The first 2 came the night of 9/27/06. The little girl is 4 1/2 and her name is Alexis(Lexie) and she has blonde curly hair and blue eyes. The little boy is 14 months old and his name is Andy and he also has blonde curly hair and blue eyes. They have had a rough life so far. The come from a very young poor family.I can't go into detail about their situation but I can say that they are adjusting well and growing. The other child is a 2 month old little boy named Juan(for now). In 5 months his legal name will be Isaiah Michael. We are getting to adopt him. His story is also long for being just 3 weeks old when he was taken away. Hopefully I will be able to post pictures soon. Wednesday 11/01/06 was my first day back at work in almost 5 weeks so I better get digging. I have a mess.

VERIFICATION COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well the visit went good. We are now foster parents just no kiddos yet but that is subject to change any minute from the minute we were verified. There are classes we have to attend every year. I am reading books so that gives us 1 hour for every book I read. We have to have 30 hours a year. So far I have read 5 books so that is 5 hours less we have to have. Our home has now been toured by 5 people in the past 9 months.Hopefully my next update will be we finally have kids.
Until then I am going to keep going to garage sales to find more bargains. I have been pretty lucky lately.Buy new get less stuff,buy used get more stuff which isn't difficult logic for me but to some people it is trashy.Their loss.

Not so pissed any more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well after being down in the dumps all day yesterday we get a call last night while sitting at Sonic. A strange number come across Michaels cell phone. It was Eric(AWFC big wig). He is coming to our house Monday,September 18th at 4:45 to meet with us and verify all our information and training so that is our verification date.They said we can make that class up later this month. I am so excited but nervous now.I have kids all weekend. I am keeping my cousins 5year old little boy Xaden and his 8 year old sister named Xana and my friends little 8 year old boy Travis. I am taking the to a parade saturday morning and then they are going to go home that evening. So I am sure Sunday I will be like a mad woman cleaning stuff that probably doesnt even need to be cleaned.Ill update more on Tuesday if I am not at home chasing kiddos.

So Pissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well yesterday I took off work to take our last class for Foster Parenting. It was hubbys day off already but I had to use vacation. Well anyways we get there at 1:15 because our class was to be at 2 and we like to be early. We sit there for about 20 minutes and then we get a call saying that the class had been cancelled because the nurse that teaches it is sick with strep throat. So we head back home to finish out a wasted day.Our last class,had to waste a day of vacation(the last day I had left). I feel like everytime I try to move forward I have to tear down a brick wall first. They are supposed to call and let us know when the class is rescheduled for. More waiting as usual.

  • Do you ever have those days where you just want to say........................................................
One More Step!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well Thursday we completed our First Aid&CPR training. We should receive our cards in about 10 days or so they said. Michael is taking a class today that I had taken previously. He had to work that day. I hope he's not being the class clown without me there to throw him looks when he says something out of the way. I would like to be a fly on the wall about now. Anyways, we have another class Wednesday, September13th which is our Med Training class and then we'll be verified that day I think. With this new agency it has only taken less than 2 months to complete everything. Ok I have to get back to work now. Just wanted to do a quick update.

Learning Lessons the hard way!!!!!!!!!!!

Today my day started out crappy! It has rained here for 3 days straight so it is really muddy. My puppy Flower got out this morning and started chasing the horse. Needless to say Shadow did not like that very well. She ran off and Flower followed her. I heard Flower yip and the other 2 dogs came running back but no Flower. So i start to panic. I go get the HOG(golf cart w/mud tires) and go looking for her. I finally find her laying motionless but breathing. I picked her up and she is limp. She was knocked out cold. She came to after about 15 minutes. One of the longest 15 minutes of my life I think. End result is she has a good hoof print on her forehead and I felt around and nothing seemed broken and she didnt act like she was in pain. She wanted in the fence with the other dogs and she was wagging her tail. Guess she is a tough one but I bet she won't mess with Shadow anymore.
