Time with my Mama!

Today was an amazing day. I spent time with my mom, my sisters, my nieces and nephews. I went through a long dramatic process of finding something to wear out. I think I must have tried on my mom's whole closet. Everything looked like crap on me. Ahhh, the joys of postpartum...although I am down 12 pounds lower than my prepregnancy weight, I still have miles to go...and its depressing. I missed my hubby who of course thinks I look amazing in anything! My mom and sisters are a bit more honest though! When I say I went through at least a dozen outfits- I do not exaggerate! So what's a girl to do when she's feeling fat and nothing looks right- go out to eat and worsen the problem! I went out to eat with the girls, Isaiah and my Mama. Such a pleasure to sit and talk and be uninterrupted..well, okay so we were int erupted by the babies, but their interruptions are quick, to the point and easily resolved. Not like older kids, who want to chat and want us to listen! After dinner, we took the babies for ice cream and then came home and put them to bed. Now its adult time, and I'm relishing every second of it. Even mundane things. For example, right at this moment, I'm watching my mom use her new steam cleaner on the kitchen floor. Its my new must-have item. I love it! It's quiet in the house, the television is down, Mia is surprisingly asleep and when we're both done with what we are doing, we can talk and talk and talk. Or sleep.
Tomorrow Ashley (my sister for anyone who doesn't remember) will come over with her two little ones and we'll hang out. Pure bliss. My sisters are my best friends. Every girl should be so lucky as to have a sister, or two or three or four....and a great mom.
I miss my hubby and five older boys like crazy though! And I can't wait to see them next week!

It's time for a girly picture, sisters ( you and other big ) and the babies Maybe i don't say babies for alexandria and sydney.

I love your new page, I read the text for every child.

It is so strange to think, if B. is not sick, perhaps that you would not know Isaiah, Alexandria, Sydney, Kambree and Mia.

It is difficult to think that his child is sick but thanks to him you accepted five other nice children in good health, it is sad that there is not matching.

The cheapest-priced evaluation might not a bargain. Ikea recommendations notoriously
are available in "see and do" picture-only format.
Touching re-balances the energy system of the body.

First and foremost, you have to pick a right social security judge to handle your case.
The Disability Attorney must have full information about the claimant's condition and he or she should also have a discussion with the claimant's doctor and present the
case in such a manner that it does not get rejected. This information must
be reported within 20 days of the hiring or rehiring.
