why me of all days

couldn't it of happened yesterday why to day when I have a list of things to do .
got kids to school alright and back went to run some errand daughter left lunch on table my car died . Luckily I have towing coverage on my insurance policy. I just had it in the shop Friday 280 dollars later. turns out the starter they put in there on Friday was a bad one.
SO towed it to the mechanics shop and the mechanic was nice enough to drop it back off at my house if i brought him back. I love my mechanic i go there all the time when our van acts up .he knows we have 1 vehicle .
Good thing the part has a 2 year warranty so today's trouble cost me 0 dollars just alot of grief.

Maternity clothes

I went through my box of them and well I need some new shirts how fun. The ones I have are stained or old and out of shape and style. I went to one web site and 135 dollars for a top I will wear a few times. I don't think so. I need some nice ones for church. Mom to mom sales here I come and salvation army here i come.
I wish I never loaned them to my sis in law or they still would be nice looking.

Eight years today

Scott and I were married by his aunt in her church. It was a beautiful May day. Birds were singing sun was shining it was 75 degrees and I had a long heavy dress on with a corset underneath . My mom in law was concerned that it would rain that day so she talked me out of an outdoor wedding . I was kind of glad it wasn't outside due to the fact i was sweating inside in the heavy dress and all .
Then 2 years later on May 10th my dad's birthday we were sealed in the Detroit temple.
These last eight years have had there share of ups and downs but it has been worth the ride. So far 3 kids another on the way they are hoping for a girl so am I.
9 moves
1 house to sale if we need to.
love you Scott

I just found out. I was wondering why I was so tired and felling nauseous the last few days and I went to put on my shorts to work out this morning and they were tight so I bought one and it says go me It finally happened my prayers have been answered. Feelings right now are scared real surprised been trying for a while know and I am happy It has happened. We told Nicholas he was going to be a big brother I wished I got a picture of his face. Other 2 thought I was joking so I showed Lorraine the test since she can read. So we are praying all goes well.

A day that everything would work out right. Today was a bad day I fell like I could scream at the top of my lungs . Once certain child is being a pill . Causing trouble instead of taking a shower he flooded the bathroom leaked into the basement onto the tv . When dropped off at school instead of going to breakfast he went to the playground and played Pulled down his pants and showed his butt to the class. Screamed down the hall bad words.
