Miss Bossy Kitty.

When ever I get up in the morning, kitty waits for me to have my coffee, and then get up and get my day started. She runs up the stairs, meow’s and purrs. She wants me to make the bed for her, since she’s the queen, so that she can sleep on it comfortably all day. She doesn’t like to lay on an unmade bed. She is very demanding about it, she’ll meow, and meow for me to make my bed. She is only one years old as well. Here’s a picture of her, very content in her made bed.

Also, I crocheted the blanket on the bed, lavender is my favorite color. I used to sell crochet online on Etsy:  How I opened an Etsy shop, and was successful.  

So here is the princess on her throne.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

Growing up, I participated in Operation Christmas Child every year. Had anyone heard of this, and what do you think of it?

Operation Christmas Child is where you send a shoe box of gifts, candy, and toiletries to children in third world countries. You get to pick the age group and gender of the child you want to send a box to.

Do you think these kids enjoy this? Or are they like what do I do with this toy…?

There still is time to drop off a shoe box if you are interested: Drop off locations

11 Years ago today, my second daughter came into the world. (Isabelle’s Birth story).

My second daughter came into the world today 11 years ago. She is very sweet, intelligent, and extremely strong willed. She was almost born on my Grandpa’s birthday, which was the day before.

When I found out I was pregnant with her I knew I would have a girl, and I knew I’d name her Isabelle, which means “Devoted to God”.

With my first born I had a C-section, and with this pregnancy I wanted a VBAC, (vaginal birth after a cesarean). With my first born my C-section hurt so bad, got infected, and I was anemic.

When I found out I was pregnant with her I went to see a midwife in a doctors office. I told them I wanted a VBAC. During this pregnancy, I switched between 4 doctors. Then I saw online that the University hospital had water birth, so I went there, and they said that they wouldn’t let Mother’s with previous C-sections have water birth.

I was getting frustrated so I contacted a home birth mid-wife, and decided to have a home birth. I saw her for two months. Then I had an ultrasound, and found out that my stubborn little girl was breech presentation and I could not have a home birth. I tried everything to get that little girl to turn, chiropractor, acupuncture, and yoga poses. She wouldn’t turn.

So I went to Boulder Community Hospital to have her and saw midwives.

The day she was born: I woke up around 9 AM and I thought my water was leaking a tiny big. Well, I had an midwife appointment at 1 PM so I just thought I would bring it up to the midwife. I went to the midwife, and I said my cervix feels funny, can you check me for a UTI? She had me pee in a cup, but then she checked me for dilation.  I was 4 centimeters dilated, and my water bag was right there at the cervix.

They gave me Pitocin right away with my first daughter at 3 cm, that is probably why I didn’t think I was in labor. I think I have a high pain threshold. I didn’t have a pattern or hardly any contractions.

So, off to the operating room I went. When I laid down for my C-Section, and they checked me I was 6 centimeters, I felt like she was going to fall out. I could obviously tell I was in labor, my contractions came every 2-3 minutes.

They gave me my spinal tap, and it made me light headed and feel funny. Soon my baby girl was here, and she was screaming her head off:

This is her big sister, they are 2 years and 9 months apart. Her big sister kept saying “It’s OK baby”, because Isabelle was screaming her head off. 1577_39888017310_5383_n1577_39887952310_1587_n15418582_10154790829177311_4820600383433559892_o

My second C-Section with Isabelle wasn’t as painful, I didn’t get anemic, but I did get an infection.

I have been so blessed with both my daughters’. They have their own unique personalities and they seem so opposite. They are both going to go far in this life. <3

 

What does this quote mean to you?

People tend to forget their duties but rememver their rights._ _

Is Gandhi saying we are selfish and demanding our rights be respected? Not doing “our duties”. Which duties are these? Being respectful of others, doing our duties as citizens?

Indira Gandhi was India’s third prime minister. She addressed food shortages, and improved farming, with technological advances, and introduce hybrid seeds for wheat and rice. This was called the “Green revolution”. Indian became self sufficient in regards to farming! This is awesome, no one should go hungry.

She was thrown in jail. Maybe this was the rights she was talking about?

She was assassinated by her own two body guards.

This encourages me to be more green. I was raised by farmers on my Mom’s side. I love gardening. I have my own mini green house, and I use my own front yard, and I only live in town home. I try to recycle, but maybe I can step it up?! 🙂 I also used to work in community gardens. What an awesome option for getting fresh, healthy food.

I take care of a lady from India. I should ask her about Indira Gandhi. It is defiantly different in this country. Things we can learn from other countries, that is why culture is fascinating and education.

_I wouldn't say I invented tacky, but I definitely brought it to its present high popularity._

This is me to a T. I like to take on too many things at once and just go at it. I am constantly going back and editing my blog. I’m like “Oh my goodness I forgot a quotation here, misspelling here”. Same thing when I had an Etsy shop. Oh I better go back and edit that picture, and that description!

Need to slow down, and be organized but it’s hard in this fast paced world. I don’t want to miss out on anything either. I try to do it all. I’m a working Mom, but I still have many things I like to do with my daughters’, and for myself. This trait probably is why I have been a caregiver in assisted living for the past decade. You are expected to do many things at once. Answer call lights, take this person to the bathroom, to activity’s, take this person to dinner, do laundry and so on. I am expected to do-a-lot at work, and I’m good at it!
I probably had A.D.H.D. like my daughter! 🙂 LOL
