I'm sorry, I'm a slacker

I just want to apologize for anyone (if there is anyone) that reads my blog....I've been a huge slacker. I guess life just distracted me. I promise to try harder to keep updated.

I guess all I really want to post today is that I'm sad. I'm so sad because my brother in law had a massive brain aneurysm rupture last tuesday and it's not looking good. His intercranial pressure is high, and staying high, and won't go down. They are talking about a last resort effort to get it down by doing a crainectomy, where they take part of the skull out to let the brain swell. I just don't know if he would even make it through the surgery at this point.

I would just like to pass this along...don't take a day for granted. I try hard not too...but this has just been a rude awakening. He was talking to his parents one minute and being rushed to the hospital the next. Never, ever say anything to anyone that you will regret. Even if you are mad at them, tell them you love them when you are parting. You never, ever know from one minute to the next if you will see them again. Live each day as if it were your last....have fun, enjoy life and love! Just try to be happy. I have had a huge reminder of this this past week. Don't worry too much about things, as long as you have your health and your loved ones, that's all that matters.

So, I just want to say I love you, my friends and family!!!

Been a long time!

Well, it has been way too long since I wrote anything on here! But, I've been a little busy....We had our baby on September 16th. It was a girl! Nora Aliz was born at 3:50 pm and was 8 pounds 6 ounces and 20 inches long. Shes beautiful and such a laid back baby...she cries when she's hungry and thats about it. She loves to just look around and listen to all the comotion going on around her. She sleeps through Natalie and Nolan screaming and playing and banging on toys. Natalie and Nolan love her. Natalie is such a good little mommy. She loves to hold her and always wants to feed her and hold her and kiss her. She even tries to help me change her diaper and her clothes. She loves to help me wash her hair too. Nolan will try to help sometimes...he just loves to talk to Nora and give her kisses, and he's already like a little protector of her. He doesn't let their 1 year old cousin get too close to Nora, because she sometimes gets a little rough and Nolan doesn't want her to hurt Nora. It's so cute to see him stand in front of Nora and try to block Abi from getting to Nora.
At Nora's 1 month appointment she weighed 9 pounds 12 ounces and was 21 1/4 inches long already! She is growing like a weed. It goes way, way too fast! I look at her and feel like it was just yesterday that Natalie and Nolan were that small. It makes me sad to think that this is my last one and the last time to have a tiny baby like this. It makes each milestone she goes through so special and so sad to me. I don't want her to grow up so fast! I don't want any of them to grow up so fast and go out into this scary world! I just want to protect them forever, lol. Well, here are a few pictures of Nora to enjoy.

No Cholestasis for me!!

Well, I know its been forever since I've posted on here. I'm trying to be good and keep up on this...but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day! Well, first my most recent good news is that I have not developed cholestasis with this pregnancy! I'm now almost 35 weeks, and would have it by now if I were going to. I'm very happy about this. Looks like this pregnancy is turning out to be my smoothest one so far....I guess 3rd times a charm!
The weekend of August 2nd we took the kids to Idlewild Park in Pennsylvania. It was lots of fun!!! The kids looooooved and keep asking to go back! They rode their first roller coaster and loved it. I thought they would be a little scared to ride some of the rides-but boy was I wrong!!! They wanted to ride everything! That is a great, great park for young kids and would reccomend it to everyone with young kids. It's perfect for them! I took tons of pictures of them!! They are all on my Photobucket site, but I'll post just a few of them on here. Here is the site with all of them, if you are bored and want to check them out, lol:

Been awhile

Well, I'm sorry, it'g been awhile since I've posted. I need to be better about posting on here, lol. Well, no major updates. Just been busy working and having fun and stressing out. I do have updates about my bloodwork though. My glucose test came back fine, no gestational diabetes for me!! Woo hoo!!!! And the funny thing is, the cholestasis testing came back fine too! I was very surprised and not quite ready to believe it. I asked the doctor if we could do testing again in a few weeks just to make sure it wasn't too early to test for it. So I'm going to have more bloodwork done at 32 weeks and 34 weeks just to be on the safe side. I just would rather make absolutely sure that I don't have it then to have tested to early and not know that I actually do have it.

On a funny note, about a week ago the kids and I were driving in the car. Natalie and Nolan were whining because they wanted something, I can't even remember what it was. Well, I said to them that they weren't getting it, and they both said, "But we want it." To this I said, "Well, I would like to have a million dollars, but do you think I'm going to get that? No." Well, Nolan answered me in a very serious tone, "Mommy I don't have a million dollars because I don't have pockets in my shorts. I don't have any money in my pants!" I just started laughing, because to him this made sense, he would have money if he had pockets in his pants to carry it. O, I just love the way kids minds work, and the cute things they say! If only they didn't have to grow up!

Ok...we have been a little busy again!

We have been super busy lately! But, thats ok with's how I like to be. Here's the run down of all that has happened over the past week.
On the 4th we went to my parents house for a cook out and then to fireworks with the kids in downtown Akron. Natalie absolutely loved the fireworks! Every single one that went off was her favorite! Nolan liked them at first and then for some reason he started to get a little scared/bored and wanted to go to the car. I think he takes after daddy in the fireworks area...cause Scott really could care less if we go see them....but I loooooove them! Heres a few pictures of the kids at my parents house, swimming.

Well, on Saturday the 5th my aunt and uncle had a picnic. They usually have one every year 4th of July weekend. It used to be a birthday party for my grandma (her birthday was July 3rd), but since she passed away it's now just a sort of picnic/family reunion. It was lots of fun. For those of you that don't know, I'm hungarian. At the picnic we always do a hungarian tradition called szalonna, which is the hungarian word for bacon. Anyone interested can read a little about it here If you read that, that is what we do. We take the bacon drippings and put it on bread, but we use onions, green peppers and tomatoes also. It's sooooo very good, but sooooo very bad for you, lol. Here are a few pictures from the picnic.

Also, this past Wednesday the 9th, Dawn and I took the kids to the Akron Zoo. They loved it! They got to see the Jellyfish exhibit. It was really cool! I love the size of that zoo...because it is the perfect size for kids their age! Just as they started saying they were tired, hot and hungry, we were at the end! It was great! Here are some pictures of them.

Now, a pregnancy update. I went last week for the glucose screening that you have around the 28th week of pregnancy. Well, it came back a little high, so I went and had the 3 hour glucose tolerance test. I also had the testing done to check for cholestasis (the complication I had with Nolan). Well, I've spoke to the nurse at my doctor's office and she informed me that my sugar was still a little high after the 2nd hour of testing. So, I'm not sure if the doctor is going to consider that as gestational diabetes or not. I go on Wednesday for another appointment with him and will find out then. She also said that the liver testing for cholestasis came back normal!! I was completely shocked by that because once you get it with one pregnancy the chances of developing it in subsequent pregnancies is 90%. I'm a little hesitant to believe that I don't have it. I'm going to ask the doctor if maybe it was too early into the third trimester to test for it, since I was just barely into the 3rd. I just want to be absolutely sure that I don't have it...because it can be a really serious problem for the baby, hence why Nolan was born 5 weeks early. So, I will update you on all this once I see the doctor on Wednesday. Right now, I'm almost 30 weeks along!!!! Boy it's just flying by!

Busy Weekend!

Ok..sorry I've taken a few days to post on here. We had a really busy weekend this past weekend, just the way I like them! Two of the highlights were: On friday Scott and his dad took Natalie, Nolan and my nephew Landen to the drive in movies! This was the first time they went to the drive in and they loved it!! They saw Wall E and The Hulk. I asked Scott how they did with actually watching the movie and he said they sort of watched Wall E. I knew they wouldn't pay a whole lot of attention because they were really excited and it was something they had never done before. Nolan and Landen fell asleep before Hulk even started. Natalie was only awake for the first half hour or so. So, it was nice that Scott and his dad got to watch that movie in peace, lol.
The second highlight was that on Sunday my dad treated all of us to an Indian's game. It was slider's birthday, so the kids got a slider hat and a cupcake. They also had a lot of fun games and things set up outside the stadium for kids to do. The kids loved it! And Nolan was in heaven. He just kept saying he wanted to go out on the field and play baseball with the guys. He took is little mitt with him and wore it most of the game.

And Nolan on the way home.
All I have to say is way to go grandpas!!!! They both hit a grand slam this weekend with the kids and took them to do really fun things!
One highlight for me is that we went to the thrift store on Saturday. I really like to go there for the kids clothes, because they grow out of them so quick and you can find some great finds for cheap! I got a big bag of clothes for the kids and only paid $17! My favorite find was a cute little yellow sundress for Natalie. It's Old Navy brand and I ended up only paying $1.50 for it! It looks brand new! Heres a picture of her in it at the game.
We also took the kids to Bettes Park on Saturday. They had a blast swinging and climbing. Heres a picture of them at the park.
Like I was a busy weekend...and I know with the holiday coming up..this weekend is going to be busy too!

Ever feel lost? I do right about now...I'm frustrated about money and my job right now. We just don't have enough money most of the time to cover bills, groceries, gas..etc. I feel so frustrated because I finished school in August for my medical coding certification and I'm now a Certified Coding Associate. I have gone for interviews at 5 different places now and so far no luck. They have me interview and come and take the coding test....they tell me they really like me and that I score great on the coding test....but that they can't hire me because I don't have the higher coding certification and I don't have any experience. Its soooooo frustrating! I went to school and spent all this time and money to do this and I can't get a job! And I need a job paying more money and more hours! I love the fact that I get to spend more time with my kids since I don't work full time....but we just can not afford it. Geeze, it's been almost 11 months now since I've finished school for this...I thought by now we would be doing a little better and instead we are at our worst.
I did go for an interview yesterday at a doctor's office for a coding/billing position. A good friend of mine works there and recommend me to him. I appreciate her doing that so much! And I really, really like the doctor. He's a very nice and caring doctor. I would absolutely love to get this job because its a great work environment, more pay and more hours. But I'm so afraid to get my hopes up because I have the past 4 times and had nothing come of it. The doctor said he has a few more people he needs to interview and will let me know by the end of next week. I pray that he liked me and will trust my friend that I would do a good job. I just need someone to give me a shot and let me show them that I can do it and I can do a great job! So I'm hoping that my 4th of July will be extra special with news that I'm offered a new job. I would really, really miss my coworkers I have now...but I can't stay there forever. I will be sure to pop in on them every now and then.
There are other issues going on too...lots of things weighing on my mind. I don't know what the best decision is in my situation....but I'm hoping that Scott and I can come to the right one.
Please just keep me in your thoughts right now....Just going through a really tough spot. Thanks for reading this!
