As my world turns

So its been a crazy life for Djo. Yep. Simply Crazy. It feels like one day runs into the next. My kids are growing up way too fast. Anthony's baby teeth are starting to fall out, which by the way, I'm terrified of!!! I have an innate fear of wiggly teeth! *shudder* too many bad childhood memories of twisting, turning, and that slimy weird hole that you are left with after the tooth is set free. Ew ew ew!

Anyway, I digress. Lliam is starting to say more words, which is good because we can't understand a word this 2-1/2 yr old says!

Work is getting much more tolerable! YAY for work slowing down enough for me to take a break!

Scentsy continue to amaze me! I really should have joined a year ago when I was peskied by a friend! Is Peskied a work? I was pesked. Thank you Meghann! Christmas was fully funded by Scentsy parties and the paychecks thereof! WOOT

I am officially decorating for Christmas tonight! yes, I know, I'm a month late from all you other "Let's get Christmas on the ROAD!!!! Decorate!! Go GO GO!!! Its November!!!" Anyway, tree is going up, and all my silly things that go up with it.

We've rec'd some bad news lately. This momma cannot bear children anymore. *sniff* Too much scar tissue or something, I wasn't really paying attention after, "You cannot have kids anymore" Blah! Well, I was listening, you just don't want to know. Trust me. But on the bright side, Jos and I are going to be adopting a little girl in the next year or so. Now that is some sweet news.

Also, along with the above news...I have a fatty liver! Fat around and IN my liver. I guess my workout-o-holic 2009 wasn't so wonderful. I guess my sit-around-and-work-all-day diet just doesn't like me. So I have been DOCTOR ordered to lose at least 40 lbs, and keep it off for at least 2 years for the fat deposits to escape my liver. Good times. Ya know, in 2011 I'll really really be hot. I have to be! Doctor's orders!

Well, I think I've hit the bulk of "about me"'s lately....lets move on to other things.

My brother, Lance, was supposed to be in the MTC by Dec 8th, but since his VISA did not come in time, we are pushed back to Jan 19th. One more Christmas was his family. Not too shabby. He got his call July this has been a long long LONG wait! poor guy.

My Sister, Kenndey, is pregnant, and we are waiting anxiously to find out the sex of the baby next week! Girl girl girl....I'm sending out girly vibes to her. Out of 9 nieces and nephews - 8 of them are boys! So we need more girls in the family. dog hasn't bitten me since April. So life is looking up!

I'm sorry to hear there won't be any more babies for you. But the adoption news is very sweet, indeed.

And good luck with the doctor-ordered weight loss!

Long-awaited update! I echo Amber's comments about the baby news. Where are you adopting from?
