Alexis and I learn how to make Maple syrup...

My mom and I took Alexis too our local nature center called Asbury Woods because they were having a weekend Maple Festival where they were having Pancakes with local maple syrup and tours on how they get maple syrup made here locally and the history of etc...

Well Alexis and my parents went to this festival last year but for some reason I could not go so this year I wanted to go.

And I did not have a chance take many pics but here are a couple:

My NKOTB Experience 3-22-09

I went to my first NKOTB concert on Sunday with my BFF and it was awesome! I just wish we did have better seats. We had seats in the back of the arena. And what made it worse is the fact the New Kids did go on the floor with the fans and sing and we could not go down there to see them. :(

Donnie got a hat from a boy which was cool and he wore it part of the concert but was even awesome was the fact he gave that same kid one of his hats once they returned to the stage! ;)

I am so glad I got my new camera now because it took great pics and it zoomed perfectly compared to my other. The concert was from 7pm but it never ended until around 10:30pm! They had Jabawakeez as their opening act as well.

So not fair...

All winter long my Alexis been fighting off sickness and been so healthy until recently :( last week I had her stay home due having a bad cough and having a sore throat, and having a stuffy nose. All signs of a common cold but she looked and sounded miserable so I did not have her go to school. She missed school for the first time for the whole school year. :( But anyhow, she got better and went to school the next day and been "fine" every since. Until last night that is, at 12:52AM she woke up out of bed and ran to the bathroom thinking she had to throw up but did not. She started to talk to me and said I really think I do, I told her go back in the bathroom hunny. All of sudden it came out, my baby did throw up. I was praying maybe it was just the food we had that night (we went to Dairy Queen). But she also had a 100.3 temp. :( After talking to her and comforting her she went back to bed...I decided to stay up just in case this happened again...sure enough about an hour later she jumped out of bed and ran to the toilet again :(. Not so bad this time and her temp was a bit down but still evaluated. But when she came back to bed she just could not get back to sleep she was so thirsty and hot. So by the time we both got settled for the night was about 5AM and we had to get up by 7AM for school..
When the alarm went off she seemed fine she still had a slight temp 98.9 and plus she had not eating anything so I decided I better just keep her home to make sure everything stays fine and foiod stays down and her temp does not get any worse. :(

Well thank goodness she has been able to keep everything down, only issue is she still has a temp. It averages around 99.9 so hopefully with some Tylenol it will knock that out. :(

She also ended up taking a 2 hour nap today so you know she is fighting something. :(

I hope she can go to school tomorrow though.

Happy Day for Mommy and Lexie too!

Well today was a happy day for Mommy and Alexis too. Why because Alexis got to go to Chucky E. Cheese's and have some fun! And Mommy had a happy day because she finally got her new camera she been shopping for LOL.

Mommy got her new camera first at Best Buy. I end up getting a Kodak EasyShare 10.0 M1033 and I was comparing it with a Canon and decided I wanted the Kodak because it had a 32 meg internal memory where as the canon compared did not.

Here are some of my first pictures that took with my camera and Alexis having fun:

They say Stressed spells desserts

And well I tell you this past month I had enough stress to last me a long time.

I was told my my ex-h that he has purchase plane tickets to have our daughter from June 22-July 5th which means he will not only have her on Father's Day but also for the 4th of July. Not what we discussed, and it has ruined our plans I planned for "us" but of course, did he consider that or call me to confirm the dates? Of course not. Then I was told by Section 8, I am not allowed to move out once my lease is reactivated unless these 3 factors occur; A fire, a natural disaster or I become ill from this house some how. Of course, I can break the lease anytime and loose all my section 8 benefits too.
