A whole lotta ...

So my blog publishes to Facebook.  I have it set up that way to keep those who are FB friends in the loop without them having to come all the way over here to mom of many.  Funny thing is, FB doesn't publish my blog posts til like a week later. lol how dumb.  So if you are reading this on FB, it may or may not be current news.

Let's see.  So in some exciting,crazy, wtfareyouthinking news today is my first day back at school.  I am a Bachelors of Science-Photography major at the Art institute of Pittsburgh online devision.  How insane.  Photography has always been my passion so I'm very excited to learn the ins and outs.  I'm thinking maybe photojournalism in my future, wouldn't that be fun?  I love portraiture too though so we'll see.  I'll be in school a while, plenty of time to figure it out.

In other crazy news, we have expanded our family by 2.  No, not human babies.  Furbabies.  Ostara is a 4 month old kitty and Bella is a 2 year old purebred German Shepherd.  After quite an adjustment period they are both fitting in nicely.  Bella is very protective of us and loves the whole family already.

Bella and Hailey.


In other news Shaylin had her yearly x-rays for her scoliosis and does not yet need a brace!  It's been so nice to hear that year after year, I hope our luck holds out with it.

I am doing great on my meds.  We have increased my anti-depressant dose and as such i'm needing less and less klonopin, which I love because the klonopin makes me so groggy.  I need a half a klonopin to sleep and pop a half a one in extremely stressfull situations but I have gone from using it around the clock to being on an "as needed" basis, which is ideal.

The kids go back to school on the first and everyone is VERY ready!!!  Poor Nate is going to have a hard time with being the only one not to go to school I'm afraid,  but hopefully we can fill his days with activities and keep him so busy he doesn't care.
