the happenings...

Wow! It didn't seem like that busy of a month, but yet I feel like it has been. We went to Albuquerque at the beginning of the month and we are going again at the end of the month. We went and got our drivers license and plates switched over finally. Justin and Alec got state ID's. Justin needed one to get his handicap placard and to take his GED. Alec wanted one.
Margarita got her first two teeth this month. They are just barely showing but they do hurt. I was letting her chew on my knuckle while she was teething, but not any more.
I have been walking everyday that I can which is at least 5 times a week. It is usually 2-4 miles. I havent' started losing any weight, but I hope to soon. UGH! here they put your weight on your drivers license. I didn't want that on there. I am pretty sure Marty fibbed about his. He is in denial about how much weight he has gained. I weigh less than when I got pregnant, but I still need to get more weight off. I am hoping that my lack of weight loss is because I am building muscle right now. I know I am feeling better - in general.
Hmm, not sure if there is anything else to add. I know it seems like it has been busier than this around here. Oh, we go to the farmers market every Saturday. I like going down there and walking around. I think it is actually more of a craft fair than a farmers market, but it is still fun to go and walk around.
We have been tossing around the idea of getting another boxer, but I still keep thinking how much extra work it is for me. I still don't get to sleep through the night with Maggie, so I am not sure I want to add a puppy to that mix yet.
Well I will add a few pictures for you to enjoy and see how things look around here.
God Bless

Albuquerque *******

Thank you for all of the prayers. It was an extremely long day meeting all of the new doctors.
It went well and we seem to like everyone we met today. Justin got fitted for new braces and a new wheelchair. We got all of the prescriptions that he was going to be needing. We did however, get a bit of bad news.

The hip that he has had 4 or 5 surgeries on to keep it from popping out of socket is popping out again. The doctor said that it looks like everything possible has been done and he just don't think there is anything else that can be done. He said that once it gets to the point that Justin can't take the pain, then he will just be in the wheelchair full time. So, Justin wasn't too thrilled with hearing that.

We did get a lot of info about help and such for going to college.

We go back the 29th of Sept. to get his braces and wheelchair. Then we go back on Dec. 2nd for some other tests.

I will try to post some pictures later. They are on my desktop comp.

Have you ever had it where stuff just disappeared? I am missing my favorite shirt, Justin's handicap placard (for parking), and my WIC card. They are just gone. This is just too weird. Hmm, maybe gremlins?

love to all,
God Bless,
