This is a blog about me, Ally, 44 now...trying to conceive baby #3. After 5 years, several miscarriages and heartaches we finally did it. Ava Lynn was born on January 30th 2009. Now I have two teenagers and a baby! Ally wants three is now complete. It's all gravy from here on in...

Back to Work...

I officially started this week. I work every day from 9-3 M-F. It's been a challenge getting used to having no time for myself. I really like it though...and it gives me some time to actually interact with adults! WOOWOO!

I'm still going to PT for my neck. They put me in traction 2X a week and they are recommending I have a unit at home. How charming will I look hanging like a giraffe.

Kids are doing well. I took Michael to an autistic doctor for a re-evaluation. We are now working with the school to get him additional therapies. Once I know what he will be getting and not getting, I can take him privately for it. When? Probably on rest for the weary.Kelly is enjoying how "smart" she looks in her glasses. I am thankful she really is a brainiac and
not so boy crazy...YET!

David has another hunting trip this weekend. Last trip of the season. He applied for a new job last week. It's a different dept and hopefully less is a step up too. I pray he gets it.

What else is going on...

We got a new T.V. Our old one just worked when it felt like it. Luckily it was under warranty so they replaced it. We got a plasma and so far so good.

Today is my 2nd son's birthday...YES, Sonny is 6 today! He's the pooch in the picture. He misses me when I go to work and now he follows me around constantly. Awww.

Well, I have to run and get to work. It's a whole mile from my house. How's that for convenience?

Have a great day folks and IPP...miss ya!

Hello Again

Hi folks. I know I've been missing in action for a while. Alot going on as of late.

I start a new job next week. I will be working Monday-Friday as a front desk person at a massage clinic... sounds delightful huh? Hopefully I will actually have the time to get a massage or two.

I've also been having to go to physical therapy. I was complaining to my doctor that I had neck pain for a while. He did an x-ray and it was determined that I have DDD (disc degenerative disease). It just develops over time so I have to go and get re-aligned so that I will have less pain. So far, I have a tilted rib and my back is out of alignment which throws off the neck muscles. It's been difficult but at least PT has been helping me get back on track. Funny this to me is I tear my ACL and MCL ligaments and it's my neck that's hurting. Go figure.

Kids are doing fine. Kelly needs glasses so we just picked out some cute frames for her (200 dollars later). Mikey has been going to a new autism doctor. We had 2 weeks of testing and now we're set to get the evaluation from her and any possible suggestions on therapies to help with speech and being more independant.

David is also doing well. We've alctually comtemplated moving back to Houston because his job is so very stressful and it doesn't allow us to spend any time together. I am doing my best to try and find someone to watch the kids so we can get some alone time...not easy with an autistic son. Last person wasn't too reliable so we're back to square one.

So that's it. I'm off to the gym and then to PT. I hope everyone is doing well.
