Excuse Me While I...

So, here we are... Several months later and finally a few words from me and a video. I don't get to use my PC very much but have been messing around with my laptop so maybe I can use it instead. After logging in I see comments and also that I reallllllly need to give my blog a makeover/update. Not sure how since I don't have the tools to do that anymore but I digress.

A ton has happened since my last post and I hope to put some of that on here, but for now I will do a quick update.

WeeMan... is now in the Gift Program at school, thinks he is a teenager even though he has many years to get there, misses his other friends but is making new ones...
Lil Kiwi... is starting preballet, still in speech classes, has proved that she is a tomboy princess that can hold her own with the boys...
KitKat...is now a year old, has new custom braces for her legs, is going to be a diva princess if she continues with the fashion sense she shows...
Momma Shenanigans... is learning how to cope with everything, misses her friends and family, dislikes the heat!
Daddy Shenanigans... loves and hates his new job, is away more than he would like...

As you don't know we found a new family member in the form of a Bullmastiff mix named Bock. Pound pups are the best specially when they weren't the ones you went to look at. Anyway... KitKat loves both dogs but Bock has won her over. From day one she took to him and crawls all over him. He also seems to have taken to her and allows her to do things others are not. In fact, he was a tad food protective when we first got him home but a few weeks later she was pushing him out of his food bowl while he sat there looking at me for help. hehehee  The dogs are not allowed to be near the table when we eat so much to my surprise when today KitKat grabbed a handful of pasta... pushed Oonagh out of the way and then fed Bock.

Country Life?

So....
I keep telling my mother that we do NOT live in the boonies... country... etc.... however, I just might. Not that I will admit to it (ahem mom you will ignore this post) to her...

That being said. Apparently where we live is also a dead zone for cell phones, regular phones, and internet connection. Being able to use the computer is far and few between because when I actually have time to get on; the dang thing does not work. In fact, today they are coming out again to see if they can fix... figure out... help the issues we are having.

You know how they say you don't miss something until it's gone.... SO TRUE... I miss my blogging and seeing what everyone it up to. Looks like I will have to settle for what I can get.

The up side is that the sky is beautiful at night!

Brand New Firecracker

Without anymore delay...... Introducing..... the newest Shenanigans family member...
Miss KitKat
The story of how she came into the world is actually pretty short. Called with a question about some bloody show so they told me to head on in to be monitor again. I got out of the car at the hospital and felt wet between my legs. Told them my water just broke so they admitted me and two hours later I was finally given a room. Apparently, June/July this year was record breaking for number of babies born so they didn't have rooms available.

We explained that my tolerance for pain is quite HIGH and thus I would let them know when I needed it. I read my books and answered questions as they came and went. All of a sudden the pain was almost to my breaking point so I asked for the epidural. Time ticked by and finally they came to put the epidural in however the pain was so bad I told them it was time to push. No pain meds... almost no doctor... a few pushes later and out popped Miss KitKat... All 9lbs 12oz... 22inches... and a full head of hair.

The nurses were shocked that it happened so quickly and that I was reading up until 20-30 minutes of giving birth. We tried telling them in the beginning that it was going to be quick and that if I said it was time; then it was time. From the time my water broke to giving birth was just about five-six hours.

Now.... I have an appointment next week to find out the results of my tests. Here's a reminder if you need. While I do plan on sharing the results it might be a few days before I can post about it. We are literally moving two days after my appointment and will be living in a hotel until further notice. Fun times...

Just a quick note

So...... I've been resting and stuck on the couch a lot since I started getting swollen feet etc.... Which means I haven't been at the computer. Do have pictures and posts I want/need to post and as soon as I can figure out how to do that from my laptop I WILL...

and......

This morning I had my appointment and was sent over to Triage for monitoring (L/D was packed and didn't have room). Everything is fine but they wanted to double check since the movements had slowed down. WELL.... while there I started having contractions and was told to pay close attention to them....

sooooo

Since Daddy Shenanigans is leaving Sunday and not coming back until sometime during the end of next week; I made a quick phone call..... My mom will be flying in this Saturday instead of next weekend. I LOVE MY MOM!

Hoping that since she was able to move things around and will be here that I won't go into labor. However, it's nice to know that someone will be here just in case.

Just a quick update for those that have been asking....
