Just in Case...

I don't write on this blog anymore and I don't think anyone is following it, but just in case someone out there wanted to read Benton's birth story and didn't know where to find it, Here is the link.

financial burdens

For whatever reason it helps me to write about the money things that are concerning me. Since my last money post I did get a Mazda 5 (yes I am spoiled.) I also found a good price on some bedding that works (and I never make the bed... Fail.) I got insurance covered care from a chiro because I got lightly rear ended. Still looking pre schools.
I'm a bit stressed about money today. Thankfully we have been blessed with extra work for Ryan which will keep us afloat but it's still annoying.
We recently had a pricey trip to the ER because of my anemia. We are trying to pay the rest of the  birthing center/ midwife fees for this baby. My anemia has also made me visit an OB a couple times and have several more expensive lab tests done. I'm on a bunch of supplements and considering trying other more expensive irons to see if they sit better with me.
Our scooter got impounded this weekend for no reason.
Kevin just got a new prescription and needs new lenses for his glasses (his prescription is super strong and requires special lens to not look like coke bottles.)
I'm out of contacts and need a haircut really bad.

Any way I just needed to write it down somewhere because it really doesn't feel as out of control like this.

If I Were a Rich Man

We are waiting patiently on either a well deserved raise or even a new job to fall into Ryan's lap. Don't get me wrong I'm glad he has a decent job it just sucks that we paid for a masters degree and he doesn't make enough to do much more than pay for those loans. We never knew we'd regret getting an education so much! We believe in getting out of debt not creating it. Any extra income goes towards school loans and we don't believe in consumer debt (credit cards and such.)

Here's my wish list...

Preschool- Kaylee asks to go to school every single day. I feel like the worst mom on the planet. I never thought of preschool as a need. I always thought most people just sent their kids to preschool to get a break from them but now that she begs for it I feel horrible about not finding her one.

Chiropractic- I've always survived without it, but pregnancy really takes it toll on your body and I wish I could plan to see a chiropractor regularly while I'm pregnant to help prevent some of those aches and pains.

Mazda 5- I've always said that when we had 3 kids we would upgrade to a Car that could actually fit three children but as it stands I don't think it's gonna happen. I'll never leave the house again in 8 months ;)

Tanning- I want to make tanning at the gym part of my routine because vitamin D is the cure to just about everything. I just need that little bit of energy and warmth that comes from a few minutes in a tanning bed but it costs money! Since it's literally below zero outside lately getting free UV rays is definitely not going to happen so winter blues are inevitable!

King Bedding- My new bed frame doesn't really have bedding to go with it. Not the end of the world.

I have been looking into getting some of these things on trade for some of Ryan's web services so maybe something will work out.

The good news is that a lot of the little things we've needed for a while were given to us my family members for Christmas :) Also I can't really complain because I'm super spoiled in that I got a new bed frame recently and a new phone (and I LOVE them both!)
