I'm a mom of two beautiful girls trying to get healthy in order to be a good role model.

My Future Home

My little girl who's crawling around like crazy now. Sniff, sniff. They grow so fast!

I guess it's never a good thing to start a post with not too much to say. We went back to Phoenix last night to sign for our upgrades ($2,500!!!) and review all of our colours. I have to say that after reviewing things, I am very happy with my choices. I was really nervous the first time we went because it was all just so much.

My best friend and her hubby are buying in the same development as us which will be nice. They were eyeing the lot next to us, for 3 months I might add, but because they had procrastinated so much the lot was taken. I have to say I am a little glad. It would have been great in some aspects. Like when they had little ones we could sit outside on a Friday night and just bring our monitors out with us. But I think it just would have been a little much. I think we might have felt obligated to do things with them ALL the time. Now they are about 10 houses away which is just perfect!

I'm considering getting a puppy. Am I crazy? The way I figure it, the puppy would be housetrained (in my main floor hardwood house) and would be good to go in our new house which is all carpet. Also, I am off now so I could dedicate more time to that training. Ava takes enough naps throughout the day that neither my daughter nor my dog would feel neglected. We'll see how things go after i talk to the breeder!

Long time no blog

Whew. I know it's been a long time. Sorry!

Update on my cat. She has something called fatty liver. It means that for some reason or another (stress due to all the furniture removal or work being done at the house or my other kitty Phoebe eating all the food) Chloe did not eat for a couple of days. After a couple of days, her body started living off the fat in her body and liver problems started. Apparently when they have this condition, they no longer have an appetite and slowly starve to death. It would have cost $1000 for an ultrasound, biopsy (to confirm diagnosis) and then a stomach tube inserted. Fraser and I opted not to pay that amount as we just bought a new house and have a child to think of. Our only option was to try and force feed her until her liver started working again and then she'd hopefully start eating on her own eventually. Well, I am happy to say that as of Saturday, Chloe started eating on her own! She has her spunk back as well. Although I am waiting for a "I told you so" from Fraser (who really was the one rejecting the treatment) I am just so thrilled that my kitty is on the mend.

As for my friend, she did end up getting her period (which was 3 weeks late), the doctor had scheduled an ultrasound for her and she is going to be keeping that appointment. She says she still has cramping and is wondering if maybe she has cysts or something like that. Her appontment is in the next 2 weeks so hopefully all goes well.

Our house still has not sold!


There is my house if anyone wants to see it! I don't think the pictures make the house look as good as it really is. We've had lots of walkthoughs though so I'm hoping we can sell within the next month.
