Lots Going on!

First and most important, my baby sister graduated from high school this weekend! I am SOOOOOO proud of her!
Second, school is out for summer! Both girls made honor roll! Kristen has held straight As for the last half of the year! She was devastated when her report card showed a 78 for her science grade. I called the school because I knew that wasn't right. They had put it in the system wrong. She had actually made a 98 in that class! They are mailing us a corrected copy of her report card.
Also, Hannah is leaving for camp a week from today. Kristen aged out and will go with the older kids in July.
Oh and last, the penny saga is over! We went in for a new xray and it was gone! Not sure how it slipped by but it did and its over now!

This Has Gone on Long Enough...

Yes I know I havent posted about the laundry room makeover yet! I promise its coming. This penny situation is STILL ongoing! Can you believe it? Of all the kids in the world who swallow change and mine is in the 1% who can't pass it! I have been looking through poop for over three weeks! Now I do have to add that that part hasn't been too bad because he has not had as much since this started. That is part of the problem. Today is our deadline. I am calling Dr. H this morning..unless by some miracle it came out in the night, and we will make a plan. The penny has to come out. Not sure if that will happen today or later this week, but it does have to happen. I don't know yet how they get it out and honestly Im not too thrilled to find out. I guess there is always the chance that it will be gone when they take the new x ray.....probably not though. So with all of that said please keep us in your prayers. This is the part that isnt funny. Well at least not right now....maybe it will be later. Follow my twitter for updates!

Just Stuff...

Okay this post is really gonna be about random stuff!

First, no penny yet. It has been a week and with my kids luck we will have to go to the doctor next week for xrays. So please pray that we see that penny soon.

Next, we have a washing machine! I think I told ya'll that mine gave out three weeks ago. We are trying to save money when we can and buying a new one just wasn't looking like a good move financially. I got on Craigslist yesterday and came across an ad for a washing machine and freezer. I talked to the guy who is about to move out of the country next week. We went last night and checked them out and ended up getting both! The Daddy and I have been thinking about getting a freezer to go in our laundry room for a while now, but again we didn't want to spend the money. We got both for $160! It was definately a great deal! Now I can start stocking up on some sales!

Speaking of good deals, bargains, ect... I have been checking out this site lately and have found a bunch of great links for coupons and samples. I love it when they come in the mail. Yesterday I had some samples and today I had a couple of free books!

Alright folks, I am off to do more laundry! I will do a real post later! I don't think I ever showed ya'll our laundry room makeover! Its pretty amazing!

The Penny....

So some of you all know about the penny. Little Brian was playing in Kristens room sunday and alledgedly swallowed a penny. I did not see this happen, but by the look on his face I am fairly sure it did. So I run him down stairs after making sure he can breathe, get him some water, and call the pediatrician.....on sunday. When Dr. H called back I could hear his own kids screaming in the background. Good, at least he has those days too. So he says that unless he starts vomiting or having breathing problems we just have to wait it out for two weeks. TWO WEEKS! I had no clue it could take that long! Well Little Brian decided that if the penny went in through his mouth then it has to come out that way too...right? WRONG! Try explaining the digestion process to a three year old. I didn't do well. He was afraid to poop. So he didn't... for almost two days. That brings us to today. No penny yet! Stay tuned for updates. The Daddy is calling it Poop Watch 2009!
