Plumbing Plunders

Well this may get a little long winded as our plumbing problems have been on going for a long time. For those of you who don't know we built a brand new house and moved in April 14th, 2006 so it's less than a year old. This past summer I noticed that our toilets and sinks gurgled often and in August I called the builder to send the plumbers out under our 1yr warranty to check it out. They came and basically made me feel like I was hallucinating. They said they cleaned the lines and there wasn't anything suspicious so if they gurgled again to give them a call and they would come back out, but if they were REALLY gurgling the problem would mean tearing into our foundation and we wouldn't want that now would we.

No, I didn't want that so when they started gurgling again in the fall I just ignored it as the plumber said it wasn't really an issue. Well in February 2007 it could no longer be ignored as sewage started coming up the drains in our shower and bathtub…

Stampin' Up Regionals

I was so excited to attend my first Regional seminar for Stampin' Up. Daniel, the boys, and I headed to Atlanta on Thursday, March 8th. The next morning we were up bright and early headed to the seminar downtown. I thought I missed city living being over 40 miles from an interstate, but I was quickly reminded of the horrible parts of city driving. Daniel managed to get me where I needed to be after stopping some ladies on the street that he said sure looked like stampers. Then he took the boys back to the hotel to clean up and check out. They spent the day at the Aquarium downtown and I was in Stampin' Heaven!!! We listened to some great presenters on techniques, business tips, and project ideas. We also swapped cards and of course we STAMPED!!!

17 Weeks

Had an OB check up yesterday and everything is looking as it should. The baby's heart rate was 156 and my 24hr. urine labs say my kidneys aren't under any undue stress. Here is the email for 17 weeks.

Hello, Amy!

Your baby weighs about 5 ounces now, and he's around 5 inches long — about the size of a large onion. The umbilical cord, his lifeline to the placenta, is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby can move his joints, and his skeleton — until now, rubbery cartilage — is starting to harden into bone. Some of it will remain cartilage for years after he's born. A newborn's skeleton has 300 parts (a combination of bone and cartilage). As your child grows, some of these parts harden and fuse together. By the time your baby reaches adulthood, he'll have just 206 bones.
