I'm just me: wife to Mike for 9 years, mom to three great kids I can hug and kiss every day and one babe I can't wait to hold in my arms again one day soon. I'm always looking to improve my faith life and be a better wife and mother.

Seems ok, no?

Well worth it

It took Mike over 4 1/2 years to finally become a full time employee at UPS. During those 4 1/2 years we went without medical insurance for us and the kids...we just couldn't afford a private plan and we made too much for the state aid plans.

I just got a read out of our 2008 prescriptions and this is what makes that 4 1/2 years worth the wait:

Household Total for 2008: Prescription cost: $2091.76
Out Of Pocket cost: $20.00

UPS has, by far and thanks to the Union, the BEST benefits we've ever had. And we pay NOTHING for them out of pocket. Yes, we have a co-pay for doctor visits and some prescriptions, but seriously...we spent $20 for the year for the family for medications.

Today we got a new puppy...for Zachary mainly but I'm VERY excited about this dog.

Her name is Juneau - Haley wanted to call her June or Junebug and I knew Mike wouldn't go for that at all. He's mostly ok with having a puppy, but I know he's worried about her size.

She's a German Shepherd mix (probably Australian Shepherd as her litter mates were Australian mix) and is about 4 months old. She was brought into the Humane Society as a stray last Sunday with her 2 brothers and 2 sisters. I have pictures of all 5 pups together on Flickr...go check it out!

She is so sweet and gentle. Zachary LOVES her already :)

it's about time, right?

Or at least that's what I hear from people.

Zachary is weaned! 2 years, 4 months and 12 days. Wow...other than my marriage (9 1/2 years!) I can't think of much that I have dedicated myself to for that length of time.

On to new adventures in our lives :)

Took a little drive

Well, that was a quick one. We left Friday afternoon before Thanksgiving and got home last night. 1200 miles each butt and legs are tired! No cruise control :(

I'm happy we went when we did as my Aunt, Uncle, Cousin, Cousin's hubby and Cousin's son were there too. Micheal took almost all of his things (that he wants for now...we're storing the rest) and is working on getting settled in and becoming a Texas resident. Woo hoo!

I'm tired. School tomorrow...hopefully most of the snow melted!
