Three More pages to see...

Here are pgs. 5,6, and 7 for the JuSt tO LeT yOu KnOw journal... We had good news this week... Lincoln got his cast off and did NOT have to get another hard cast. I was pretty shocked. He has to wear a removable hard splint type thing. His poor little arm still looks crooked, but the doctor said that was normal, and it could take up to 6 months to straighten out... yep, 6 months. When I first saw it I thought, "Uh-oh, its still messed up... he is going to need surgery or something!!" But, our great, and I do mean great Ortho Doc, explained why it still looked like that despite its being "healed". If all doctors were this good, no one would ever complain about having to go. He was kind to Lincoln, remembered us, took his time in explaining things, etc. AND once again, he e-mailed me the (new) x-ray photos!! Good Doctors=cool. :)

I was also tagged by Theresa ( ) for this fun little quiz... Here goes! 5 Weird things about me...

  1. I sing super loud in the car with the boys. I am usually hollaring off key and sounding terrible, so I am sure this is creating a non-pleasant experience for my kids...
  2. I use liquid and powder creamer in my coffee
  3. I have a highly powerful sense of smell
  4. I do "voices" when I read the boys stories. (i.e. the Big Bad Wolf has a NY accent, etc.)
  5. I have every ziploc bag known to man, and keep adding to them when they are on sale. I would hate to run out ya' know...

That last one was courtesy of Micah, who I must say seemed surprised that i needed a little help picking a 5th weird trait. Hmmmm... In my defense with the baggies, when you have coupons and they are sale, why not buy them up??? They aren't going to go bad or anything, and I am getting them for like, 50 cents a box! Fess up... what do you have stockpiled????


  1. i don't 'hoard' zip lock bags but I always have them on hand, use them everyday...I also love foil for some reason, I like how you are keeping a consistant theme thRoughout youe jouRnal, it looks fab!

  2. Your journal is looking fantastic! I have lots of the HUGE GANTIC ziplock, I don't want to run out! LOL

  3. I'm loving how your journal is coming together. I'm so inspired to do this too. Thanks for sharing these great little tidbits of you and letting us get to know you better!
    I'm glad Lincoln is cast free, but I'll bet it's still really tender. Poor little guy!
    In a couple days, you'll remember something weird about yourself and will have to come back here an post it. Well, that's what happened to me anyway. It's hard thinking up weird things about yourself.

  4. I forgot to list also that I have a supersonic sense of smell too! Not a good thing when you have a husband and THREE sons!! LOL!

    Love your journal!

    And I'm a closet Ziploc hoarder too. I love the big 13x15 bags for keeping monthly kits or coordinated papers all together. I just throw them in an accordion holder and take that and my tools to crops - traveling lite these days!
