Offensive?

http://www.venganza.org/ I find this offensive. Flying Spaghetti Monster "religion" called pastafarian mocking Christianity. On the page it's atheists that are offended by Christianity. This is ridiculous.

Yes, I'm still breastfeeding.

We reached our 14 month milestone the other day. I know it's good for her <3 We're still going strong and she shows no signs of weaning. 100 benefits of breastfeeding

Credit cards

We paid our credit cards off. All except for one. The credit cards companies do NOT like this one bit. They still didn't close some of them and charged a finance charge. They sent me a letter thanking me for being a customer and they are looking forward to having me as a customer for many many years to come. W/E I just canceled. Guess I'll be on the phone with them!

Grants

I am so relieved and happy that I got a grant for Alissa gymnastics! That means I don't have to pay 50 dollars for 2 months of gymnastics 45 minuets a week. I can keep doing this. Alissa doesn't seem like she enjoys these activities I take her to at the rec center. She is a free spirit and doesn't like to be told what to do! HA! So she might not go anymore. We'll see. She is going to preschool next year and reading class. :)

6 whole years.

and counting today Jesse and I have been married 6 years. This Valentines Day was our 6 year anniversary. We went to Los Arcos. I have no idea how to spell it. The food was great! I am so glad I jogged before I went :P :D Our good friend works there and we didn't have to pay for our desert :) Nice. She had a baby boy a month after Isabelle was born.

Our Valentines Day crafts.





Some neat ideas I got off the Internet. I'm not too crafty but we enjoy ourselves and it's good for Alissa's learning. We're still planning on making a heart mobile. Enjoy. :D tick tack heart
The butterfly was my fav.

Alissa Grace Gast


My first born baby girl is going to be four soon. I wanted to take her to Disney on Ice but I don't think I can afford it. She is doing great. She is learning to write and is well on her way to learning how to read. She knows what sounds each letter makes. She can count to 30! so proud of my Lissa.

She still is painfully jealous of her sister, unfortunately. I hope I'm doing all I can to help her stop being jealous. She regressed when we had her. She is still acting like a baby to get attention. She loves to watch Winnie the Pooh and likes T.V. a little too much for Mommy's liking. Thanks Daddy! She's taking dance class right now. She is doing okay but doesn't like to follow directions. She sure is a pretty little girl. I am in trouble when she's in high school.

Almost a year ago, I got accepted as a chacha guide. I haven't started yet. Now that I got a fast computer maybe I can guide fast and actually earn money! I still have medical bills I need to pay off. Maybe I will get the hang of it or maybe just maybe by a slight chance it's not my thing. We shall C. Anyway, in case you're wondering, it's a text answering service. You text a question and a guide will answer.

Going back to school....

(again).... So, Jesse's contract @ IBM will be up in Nov.. However, he may have a job with Tech systems. Just in case I get stuck paying the mortgage and everything else I am going back to school this summer for my CNA. I'm sure I can make 12-18 dollars an house. Good enough :-) I enjoy that kind of work. I'm studying already because I don't know if it would be possible to not start studying now and actually pass. With two young daughters I don't think I would be able to do well unless I study now! I have my old text book, I checked out the state board written test from the library and I'm practicing the skills. I'm good to go! I Got accepted into the local community College again. lmbo.

My neighbors moved out!

That means I'll be getting new neighbors. I hope they're nice and not derelicts because you never know in this neighborhood. The ones across the street shoot up outside and wake me up a night. Our neighbors were nice but couldn't tolerate noise! They called the cops on us once. We made friends though. Then they gave us a new stove :) among other things. We're getting new neighbors two houses down as well. Their house is going to be auctioned off....

My lil' Belle is walking.... and update.


It seems like she has been taking a few steps here and there since she was 10 or 11 months. I thought she'd walk any day at an early age. Well, a few days shy of 14 mos, she started walking!! She's perfected it so well that she is running. Well, kinda. She is say many many words. Poop (funny one), cat, dog, I eat, up, go, Mama, Dada, Mommy, baby, ball, block, hat, head, nose. She seems pretty intelligent :) She is such a Mama's girl, she wants to be with me ALL the time. But that fine because she's growing so fast and soon I'll be wishing I had a baby to hold and take care of.
