We've been so busy

Lots of things going on here lately.

Caity had her last test (we hope!) at Children's and now we are awaiting the consultation appointment to discuss surgery and other treatment components.

Izzie goes Oct. 13th for testing.

Both Jay and I are busy with work. But thankfully things are slowing down and I hope that I'm not MIA anymore for a while!

Momdot and Combi Rock

Combi has teamed up with Momdot to host yet another fabulous stroller contest.


This time they are giving away a limited edition Cosmo DX in Blush

The wonderful ladies over at momdot are giving this stroller to the person who they feel best needs the stroller and as such they are letting each person post a story about why they need the stroller.

Some specs about this stroller:

Now for why I need this stroller.

Both of my girls have medical problems. So we spend an awful lot of time in the doctor's office and lately at Children's hospital. This makes it very difficult to keep up with both of my girls. We often go from waiting room to waiting room or department to department and its not easy to get both girls there quickly. This stroller would really help with that.

When Caity has her surgery (or two), I know that a new stroller will come in handy for getting around with both girls. It would be great not to worry about keeping up with both girls when we are dealing with so much else.

So that's my story. Not a big sob story, but just the basics of why I could use this stroller.

Gustav is visiting

And he brought us LOTS of rain. Pouring rain.


2 days straight so far.


And he's knocking down power lines left and right.

So I am not at work today -- no power there.

Still power at home for the moment.
