Been absent...

and I apologize. I have been in a state of uncomfortable tightness and nausea for almost 2 weeks now. After going to the dr a week ago, I found out I had a kidney stone, hopefully just 1. Most of the time I am fine, there have been a couple of days though that I really thought I was going to be sick. Kelley went through this last May and a couple of guys at work have recently also. I am just hoping and praying that it will pass soon without too much distress.

I have started a Facebook page! I update on that quite a bit. It is fun to talk to people from school whom I haven't seen in years!

Dominiq had his 1st speech therapy session this morning. It went well! We got some info and have another appointment next week. We are to try and work on getting him to make some consonant sounds since he usually says vowel sounds. I have been joking that after a few sessions we will probably be asking her to reverse it! LOL!

Eriq has done well with soccer this season so far. They have had 3 games and won the 1st 2! The 2nd one the team didn't even have any subs meaning all 4 kids had to play the whole game and won!! He has made a few goals and was very excited! I just over a months time Eriq has pulled out 3 teeth! I will post his pic soon! LOL! He will turn 7 next Wednesday on April Fool's Day! We will be having his party at the park next Saturday, hoping the weather will cooperate!

This is what Eriq told me the other day- Mom you don't know what it's like being in school, being named Eriq with a Q, and having your birthday on April Fool's. Nope I don't!! He is too funny!

It's my

Birthday, but I don't want to cry!! I am just glad I feel better. Yesterday I started feeling like crap, laid in bed most of the evening reading a book. Today, I have felt fine so far! We took the boys to the zoo this morning. We were so glad we went when we did! When we left the lines were very long. Eriq, the older one, just left to go stay the night at my sister's. So, now I get to pick whatever I want for dinner! Hmmm....not sure yet! I am 32 today, but I don't feel like it, not that I know what it really "feels" like! I will be going out with a few girlfriends on Friday night to the casino for a few games and some drinks!

What's new...

Not too much! LOL! I have been so busy I just realized I hadn't updated on Dominiq's hearing test.

He passed or is within normal limits. She wants to see him back in 6 months for a recheck. We are supposed to play with his ears so he isn't as sensitive about them being touched. He starts his speech therapy sessions on the 27th of this month. He has been saying a couple of more words, so I am not too worried. I think he will benefit from the sessions though.

Kelley still hasn't started working, but I have faith that something will come up soon. I know he is probably going stir crazy waiting around, but it has given him time with the boys. We are going to start taking Dominiq to childcare this week a few hours at a time to get him used to it since he will have to do that when daddy starts working. Kelley's sis got a job, so we no longer have a caregiver, hence the childcare.

Eriq's soccer games started last Saturday. I was home with Dominiq. Eriq scored 2 goals and the team won by 1 point! They got new uniforms this season, like flourescent orange! I will post a pic soon!

I celebrate my 32nd birthday next Wednesday the 18th! My mom asked if I was going to be 30??? LOL! Not that I feel 32. I sometimes have to think about my age cause I really don't care! My sister's bday is the following Sunday the 22nd. We are going with some of our girlfriends/family to the casino next Friday night. We have done this the past 3-4 years. Just play a little, get a drink, and chat. Usually a fun and relaxing time!
