quick 7.


Birthday Tomorrow!

Tomorrow Madeline turns 14. She is our first daughter. It was really exciting to have a girl after two boys. Although I often thought once I got her home that girls weren't all that different to boys when they are babies. They are all just as cute and cuddly. Now at 14 she certainly is different from our boys. Happy Birthday for tomorrow Madeline. We hope we celebrate many more birthdays for you. You are a true blessing to our family.


A Shopping Trip!

Today I took the girls on a trip to Whyalla for some retail therapy. This was what Madeline wanted to do for her birthday. The girls all bought 4 new outfits each. We got some great sale items but still ended up spending a lot of money.
Now both Brigette and Amelia are talking about having a shopping trip for their birthdays. Since they celebrate two weeks apart, we may do one trip for both of them.


Chrism Mass.

This week on Tuesday our diocese is having the Chrism Mass. I am going to take Tom, Amelia and Christopher over to Port Pirie for the day.
Last time I went to the Mass it took nearly 2 hours so I think after Mass we will have a picnic lunch in the park or have some take away.


Pump Change.

Last night I checked Tom at midnight and his sugar was 27.6 (496 for the Americans). I checked for blood ketones and sure enough they were positive. This means that no insulin is getting into his system. When this happens we need to give him an injection of insulin and then change his pump. I woke him up and changed the pump. I slept through the 3am alarm to check him so got Steve to check him at 6am when Christopher woke up. He had come down to 10.2 (180).


Weight Watchers!

I am about 10 KG heavier than I was when I got pregnant with Christopher. I really need to loose the weight because I know it makes me more lethargic. I was going to join weight watchers here but they don't have a group. I am going to look into an online group. Tonight at Mass I told my girlfriend that I was walking with more regularly that I am going to come on Monday. My aim is going to be to go for a walk most days while it isn't too cold.


Bejeweled Blitz!

This game is totally addictive. I use to log into my facebook account once or twice a week. Since I started playing bejeweled Blitz I am logging in everyday.
Out of my friends on facebook, I am coming third. One of my friends has a score of 160000. I keep on wondering how the heck you get a high score like that.


Camera USB!

Still missing. I cannot believe something can disappear like this. I decided to order another one on EBay. I got one for a good price but I have to wait for it to come from Hong Kong. The seller has on his page that it can take up to two weeks. I hope it doesn't take that long.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
