My mom's bday bag and a new one for me!!

For my mom's bday, I made her a new bag! It's in the gym's colors and it's appliqued with the gym letters and stars. It was a lot of work and I think it turned out well.

Yesterday, I made myself a new bag. I have been wanting new one for a while. I 'm glad that it's finally done! It's a little big for me, but it will work!

Doctor Visit Today

Almost 3 weeks ago, I made myself a Dr's appointment. It was long overdue. What they say about moms taking care of themselves last is true. I had been having some symptoms and I needed to see what was going on. The Dr. ordered some blood tests and then I was to come in today for an ultra-sound. The ultra-sound was clean (YEAH!!), but I have hypothyroidism. My thyroid isn't producing enough of it's hormone. I need to take synthetic hormone for the rest of my life, but it's very treatable!! Trust me, this is great news. I'm a little bummed about taking medicine forever, but to be back to myself will be fantastic!!!

July 4th, 2008

Yesterday we did the Fourth of July celebration thing. We had hotdogs and watermelon for lunch. I even made homemade ice cream for dessert. We bought some fireworks at Kroger and the kids really enjoyed watching them in the backyard. After the excitement, we came inside and watched the fireworks on tv. Madison kept telling everyone "Happy Independence Day". It was a very nice, relaxed day :)
