I haven't blogged in so long I don't know where to start! So this blog is going to be comprised of a bunch of random thoughts. Also check out my crafting blog - I've actually had time to finish a few projects lately.
Ignoring the Budget:
So Boris and I are suppose to be budgeting (mainly because we are moving Chase to a new daycare that is insanely expensive - what a parent won't do for their child...). Unfortunately, no matter how hard I try I can't seem to control myself lately. I just keep spending spending spending. Some of my more recent purchases included:
- a new pocket camera (I am tired of always hauling my SLR around)
- a penguin costume for Chase for Halloween
- new pants for Chase
- some Old Navy clothes for everyone in the family
- crafting supplies
- Zoo pass for Chase's birthday
- there are also these necklaces that my friend showed me and I'm sure I'll cave soon and purchase one of those also
Chase has been adorable lately. He has taken a few steps and he learned how to drink from a straw. I can't wait until he is full on walking. He is getting to be so big - I think he will even need a hair cut soon!
I'm still sick - and it still makes me miserable. I had a test done where they drew my blood, took out the white blood cells, and then flagged them and re-injected them back into my body to see if they all went to some kind of infected area. It didn't turn anything up but it was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever had to do. It involved 4 attempts at an IV and sitting still for 45 minutes while they scanned my body (and of course in that 45 minutes my limbs all fell asleep and I had an itchy nose etc etc). I am tired of being sick...
My brother in law and his wife had their second baby. I haven't had a chance to see her yet but I guess they named her Sophie... I saw pictures and she looks just like her dad... I guess the Kalikstein genes are rather strong. I'm surprised Chase looks as much like me as he does. Also we went to Boris's grandma's 85th birthday party today. It was very fun - I can't imagine what life will be like when I'm 85...
