Tuesday, December 2


So I'm full of ideas and well they never really come out like I think they will. I wanted to start a little at home business with a friend of mine whom I no longer talk to so that didn't work out but I now want to try again on my own but there are a few hitches. 1) I gave away my sewing machine 2) I couldn't sew a strait line to save my life 3) is my idea original and will people be willing to buy something that I think is great.

Brian said he would support me and that's great but he can't sew and I don't think he'd be any help getting things started. I'd share more of what I want to do but this is a pretty public blog and well I don't want my ideas being taken, not like they are super original but still...

One of my biggest hitches is I gave my sewing machine away. I only used it less than 10 times and I would ruin everything I tried to create and I got really frustrated. The thing that stinks is I begged Brian to get it for me. It wasn't cheap either so talking him into getting me another I think might be hard. At least he knows i had good intentions as do i now so we'll see!...

Happy Birthday!

Today my baby turns 2!

Here is a funny story that I haven't told many...well it's embarrassing but I figure after two years it's ok to tell!

Once upon a time.... No, ok it all started one night at what used to be Foote Hospital. I had given birth to an amazing baby girl but I was so out of it and tired that when I actually gave birth I didn't get to see her and they took her out of the room. Well, I feel asleep and I was just so tired I slept for like 5 hours in between the RN's coming in to push on my stomach which sucks bad. Anyway, as soon as I was able by now 6 hrs after giving birth I wanted to see my baby. They told me she was in the NIC unit so I went there. There were about 7 babies and all in incubators and for their protection they keep the name tags facing away from people as they come into the room. Ok, now you know how they say a mother knows her baby well, I have to say in the mix of it all I wasn't sure. I looked around the room and all the incubators had blue blankets on them so there was one with a pink blanket on it and I was sure that had to be Amelya. I walked over to it with Brian and I was like "is that her?" I turned around and looked at the other babies and I didn't see another with pink and I was like "this has to be her!" Brian was like "I don't think it is." and then I said, "it has to be a mom knows these things."

The funny part was a nurse walked up to us and said "can I help you?" Now this was after I was sure it was our baby and I said "I'm Kassy Dunn" and before I was done with my sentence she said "oh, the Dunn baby she's over here" OMG it wasn't even my baby I was bonding with. Amelya wasn't in a incubator she was all wrapped up under a heat lamp on the other side of the room that I didn't even know was there. What an ass I am. In my defense I was pretty tired.

One look though at Amelya and I knew without a doubt that she was my baby. She was so little weighting 4.9lbs and born at 36wks. It was a pretty easy labor the best part was on push and she was out.

Now, Amelya is about 23lbs, talking, potty trained (training), and starting in with the terrible two's already! I love her so much and am excited to be sharing in this day with her! Happy Birthday Amelya I Love YOU!

New Car!

So, with recent troubles with a crappy little Honda I suggest Brian buy because we needed a car, we found that we needed a new car so we went car shopping. In the end we chose a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica! I couldn't be happier. It's a lot of money in the end so we hope to pay it off early. I'll have to take some pictures of it to post, but I've been rather under the weather lately and right now I feel like my face is going to explode in a massive explosion of snot. It's gross I know but I had to share it with someone. :) Well a short post for now, I'll write more when I don't feel so under~the~weather!

books to read

so I've gotten sucked into a series of books by the author Iris Johanson. It's completely unlike me to get this wrapped up in a book, I'm not much for reading for pleasure. However, I just can't seem to get enough of this author. I read 4 of her books in a week and now I'm working on two more. I can seem to finish up a book in about 6 hrs that includes distractions. I'm thinking now that this fire is lit I should keep reading but I hope I find something else that captures my imagination like these books. I've been told to read the Twilight series but I can't bring myself to do it. I've been told it will suck me in but I saw the movie poster and now the characters have faces and all I would see is them and not my own image. Kinda weird I know but it spoils it for me.

Ok here is some crazy news we have found a new home for our pigs well rather Pet Supply Plus is finding them a new home. Did you know they will buy your animals from you? 4 guinea pigs for 40 bucks not bad. Just so you know they were horribly stinky and very unfriendly. you could hold them but after you chased them down in their cage where they would fling all of their bedding out in the struggle.
Here is the good news about all of this. We got a Ferret! His name is Rufus and he's wonderful. We are so ferret people I wish we would have known this sooner. He's just like a kitten only funner and he also acts like a human baby he sleeps 18hrs a day, he eats, sleeps and poops what in that sentence doesn't remind you of a baby? He's fixed, descended, up to date on all shots so we just have to take him in for his next round. We've been battling fleas with him and the kittens who he loves, they play like they've been together forever.

I'm going to put the girls to bed and hit the sheets myself I'm fighting off a pretty nasty sinus infection and after being on my feet all day it just takes it's toll on me. I hate seeing patients when I'm like this I just have to keep my distance... :-(

Oh to be young again! :)

Today while at church I was approached by an older gentleman whom I had spoken with Friday night at the Jr. High youth get together we have at our church. First thing out of his mouth was

"I wanted to apologize because the other night when I saw you I was like what the heck is a high school girl doing at the Jr. High event."

I was so taken aback but at the same time so thankful. I in return said "NO, thank you so much you've just made my day, I'm 26, I've been married 6 yrs and I have 3 children, So thanks for thinking I was in High School. "

I could maybe pass for senior high or just in college but either way it was pretty awesome. I know it was not a compliment but I thought it was great.

So, in other news we now have 1 cat 2 kittens, 1 mama guinea pig, 3 baby guinea pigs, and 2 blind mice. ahhaha I don't know if both are blind but I've been told one is. We are safe haven for friendly clean critters. :) Brian did mention something about an iguana.....I had to put my foot down we just don't have the room yet :) ahahh ok not all but maybe someday. The girls have all been really good with the animals, Amelya still would like to throw them or squeeze way to hard but she is also allowed to play with them.

New Additions!

Ok so I know it may have not been the best decision that I've ever made or that Brian and I have ever made but we decided to go ahead and pick up a family of guinea pigs. It's a mom and three little ones that are a week old. The lady I got them from had over 25 and I felt really bad for her so I took more then I should have. I'm afraid I'm going to have inbreed guinea pigs soon.

It was an interesting day at work today and we had a horrible accident in our out patient area. This woman left her son unattended on a bed that was raised for us to draw his bed and he fell off. I've never heard such a sound I mean it made my stomach turn and I just expected the worst. The poor little guy could not hold his head up and his eyes kept rolling back in his head. I don't know how bad it really was they rushed him to the ER. The mom just said "oh I couldn't get to him quick enough" I don't know why anyone would leave a child unattended like that on a raised bed. Poor guy was only 35m old. We gave her the lab number so I hope she will call to let us know if he is ok.

I currently am babysitting 3 teen boys and my own children. I am in my own h e double hockey sticks! :) cheesey I know but if someone is reading over my shoulder I can't spell the word...

Faith Hope Love & Family

So I thought I would come up with a title for my blog and well it's crafty and written in a different language. It says Faith Hope Love & Family, in Arabic. Which reads backwards, so if you read it the way we would it says, Family & Love Hope Faith.

Today is a crummy day outside but it's nice because I have the day off and Brian is home till 3:30 and he's hangin out with Amelya keeping her busy which just leaves me time to well pretty much be lazy. :) I really should clean out the cat box which is making my stomach turn as I type....It's not very often that I just get me time so I eat it up when I can. Tonight I get to watch Olivia in her Gymnastics class. They keep the door shut because they say the kids like to show off for the parents so they want them to not so they can actually learn. I'm pretty sure tonight is going to be one big show off fest that the kids and parents are going to eat up.

This picture is Olivia before gymnastics trying on her outfit which we got on clearance at target(one of my most favorite stores ever) I'll have to take a few of her tonight, but the funny thing is she lost the leotard that matches the jacket and the interesting part is were not even sure where she lost it....a mystery worth solving to save me from having to buy another!
