uMMM...  where did January go?   I can't believe it's a new month already--  crazy.   Had to go out and buy a new washing machine yesterday....  ugh.  It will be delivered tomorrow.  Not a lot of news...  now to do a big clean in the laundry room for the new machine-- it sings a tune when the load is done, KissLOL.  My mom bought one (a LG from Home Depot) and did all the research... so I literally marched in, gave them my sku and was done.  Figured by the time someone came out and looked at the other one, it would be about $300 (min)... so we might as well buy a new one (and one guy that I trusted at Sears told me that the Whirlpools usual last 8 years... we got 9 1/2.    FINALLY got everything approved for Monday's MRI...  it was a stupid mess and even though my Dr. called me to find out my frustration, I was disappointed that she forgot the human side of things and ask me how I was holding up or give me encouragement for Monday.    I always thought she was awesome because she has the same BT chromo issue that I have (1 in 20000), but with what I pay for healthcare, I expect to not have to go thru all of this.   Mind you the BIG pita was the insurance company itself, or rather who they sourced it out....  not wanting to pay for more tests.   I'm a bulldog and it makes me sad that there are so many people that don't get the healthcare they deserve because of all these new rules and cutbacks.  Am I better off then I was four years ago...  finanancially NO, healthcare wise NO....  I just hope the next four years go by quickly.  (and sorry to soap box some political views here).

Heather and Tracie and Ann....  are you staying warm???   Will that cold spell let up this weekend???

What are everyone's Super Bowl plans?   We aren't doing anything.    I think DH will do some Ribs and that's about it.   I think I'm for the 49ers (although I can't stand their coach, I like the other brother better--- BUT  I loathe Ray Lewis and so I do not want him to win)...  and I hate Beyonce...  so, I'm no fun !  LOL

It really is sick what people have to go through to get the healthcare we all deserve. Glad you were able to get things worked out though. As for the superbowl I'm with ya. I don't like the niner's coach can't stand Ray Lewis. I do like Matt Birk though so if the Ravens win I will be happy for him. I think we are going to stay home and watch.

Had the big ultrasound yesterday. Proud to say we stayed team green. The baby didn't want to cooperate and stayed in the fetal position the whole time. Made it hard to get some shots but they managed to get everything it just took awhile. Also found out that I have an anterior plancenta. That explains a lot of things.

Thank goodness the cold weather eases up a little this weekend. We're suppose to get into the teens for highs. I took Charlotte to the grocery store this morning and some lady yelled at me for not having her face covered. I just laughed it off. I know it's cold but not so cold that I need to turn her into a mummy. Plus Charlotte is like her daddy and always warm.

I had to chuckle about the lady at the grocery store--- so midwest !  (no one here would even say a thing)... LOL.

I have to say that I am glad you are on the Green team....   I hope you stay-- I absolutely loved the surprise in the delivery room (as did the Dr and Rns!).     

I'm crazy.  My quest to stay busy has led to me totally cleaning the laundry room (which needed it) for the big delivery tomorrow--- Geez, I'm a pack rat.  But it's going-- Martha(stewart) would be almost proud !

Hi ladies! happy february! Sorry I've been mia lately, things have pretty stressful, please keep me in your prayers as I have a lot going on right now :( In other news, Violets bottom teeth are finally coming through so hopefully we'll start sleeping better. Kind of a busy weekend (I forgot the superbowl was even on LOL we are not sports people!) N has gymnastics and the kids have faith formation and are in a special procession at Mass on Sunday then we have a playdate to see a nature film. hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Wenz, yay, we have an LG and love it! We went with consumer reports to find the best for what we needed, so it is a good one! and the tune it plays is fun, I really love doing laundry now!

Heather, too funny about the lady at the store! We are such wimps, I hate going out even when it's below 50 LOL

Tracie, have any sunny vacay pics to share? :D
