Few updates since last entry a year ago... (sorry!)

I am no longer at Staples; the cost of daycare plus higher out of pocket amount with Staples insurance was more than I was making at Staples. Amelia enjoyed her time at daycare but there was also a noticeable difference in her when I was working.

Amelia starts preschool 1 on August 19th. She is really excited...I am just a little bit. :D We have been working on our shapes, colors, numbers to get ready... hopefully she...

New job and random thoughts

So I have decided to go back to work at my old job at Staples. I miss working there and the home study thing is just not working out. I have completed home studies in March and am currently still waiting payment. I am not going to do anymore for sure until I have gotten paid for the four and half. I am not sure completely if I will ever do them again....

I start back at Staples on the 15th an...

Things have been pretty busy. I took a job the very end of December writing home studies. When OKDHS needs a home study complete they contact my boss and she checks to see if I can take it (or another contractor.) I have had several that need to be completed around the same time, so I have been busy. I had a setback for a week and a half, so I am trying to get caught up. Steven and I got signed back up with the Y. We have ta...

Catching Up

Sorry to those who visit this site and have been finding it behind. I am sorry!

So seeing by my previous blog, I haven't posted since August. Well, let's see what has happened since then.

1) I ended up having the foot surgery in September. The doctor was able to successfully remove my sesamoid bone through the top of my foot, so I was on crutches and able to put a bit of weight on it for a few weeks. I had a boot on my foot for about 5 weeks and it has become better....

Foot Surgery

Posted on August 27, 2011 at 1:35 AM Comments comments (0)

So what you are looking at is my sesamoid bone that has become the size of a marble. It rests underneath one of my bones in my left foot. Everytime I am on the ball of my foot it hurts pretty bad. So the news is: I am having surgery on the 6th. He might be able to remove and repair from the top, but he wasnt very optomistic about that route. He thinks that it will need to be removed from the bottom of my fo...

So I realize that it has been awhile since I have posted anything here. I just want to let you know what I have been up to.

I volunteered to be a part of the MOPS steering team. First, what is MOPS? Mothers of Preschoolers. Second, steering team is basically those who run it and keep it moving along. I volunteered to take care of the newsletter and publicity. So while I have been away from my personal site, here, I have been working on another site for the group. It is at

Surgery Once Again

Posted on May 14, 2011 at 8:46 PM

I had another surgery on Valentine's day. I went to OKC to have it done by a very good doctor. She took very good care of me. Unfortunate is that I had to get a hysterectomy. It was my last option in order to be pain free and end all of the other four surgeries. I have no pain currently and I am hopeing it will stay that way. I have to have be continuously on hormone replacement therapy...the hormone estrogen by either pill or patch. I started with a circular patch call Estradiol but the adhe...
