Wes Lassos Stork

Today has been a regular day, I have cleaned the house and played with MJ. I'm getting as much playtime as possible given the fact we are expecting another baby! Lisa is about 6 weeks into pregnancy and already feeling it. I'm trying to do everything to comfort her, but she is sick with a cold as well. We are very excited about it, we always wanted another child. Just not so soon, but we both agreed some time back that we should try not to have an only child. Even if we had to adopt.

It is wonderful to have a sibling or two. I know I had a Brother named Don and still have my sister Melissa. We had loads of fun growing up, we did almost everything together, until we started to have our own friends. We remained very close, but kept our friends separate. I have to be honest I was a tag along with my brother and his friends and they sometimes let me know when I wasn't wanted. I will save those embarrassing stories for another time.

We celebrated Lisa's Birthday on Saturday, and it went OK. I spoiled her with love and appreciation for all that she has done for MJ and I. Except I did open my mouth and upset her with reality, my mistake! I should have just celebrated her special day, but I was able to smooth things over though. At least I think so! I have been told numerous times in my life that "Your a great person when your mouth doesn't mess it up.

Back to my day, I'm waiting for my tires to be replaced and rotated at Sears. (OUCH!)

There a couple things in life I've learned: That you really never own your own land because of property taxes. That most things are never really free even if it says so. (Read the fine print) That we will always have to worry about car maintenance, it will be never ending. (Tires, parts, service, and eventually a new one.) Finally, most people can never really afford kids. (With each kid everything goes up and for less material to make clothing. Shoes, pants, coats, etc.)

Why is it so damn expensive to make infant and kids cloths? They will only wear it for a short time and for way less materials. Why: Because they know that most of us have to buy it, that is you don't go to a consignment shop. Enough about this gripe, we are very happy about the pregnancy.

I wish we hadn't have donated most of our baby stuff the weeks before we found out the good news! (Stupid, stupid, Stupid) I'm smacking my head like Chris Farley Right now!

We are worried like crazy, but happy! Life is a very funny sometimes, it can be an emotional journey. The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful. :)

They just called me about the tires, so now I must motor!

I wish you all a great week!

Congrats! Good luck to your wife. My second pregnancy was awful.. hopefully she'll get lucky and start feeling better in a few weeks. You're going to love having two! When Jasmine looks at our newest one, beaming with love, it makes you melt. ;)

Congrats on the news. Seems like your life isn't what it is, but what you are making it.

And it sounds like it is going good!

I'm so happy for you and your family. Sounds like it's kind of a scary time, but you'll all be fine. As for the clothes, plenty of people are going to consignment shops and Goodwill for kids clothes (or their own clothes, for that matter). They outgrow them so fast, why spent top dollar on something they'll outgrow in a few months?

Hey, we get to see a picture of you! Cool! You young pup. ;)

I like the title of this entry. Makes me think of George Bailey lassos the moon.

Hugs, Beth

Congratulations Wes! You and your wife will be fine. Love really does make the world go around.

As for the taxes and nothing being for free, you can say that again. It's ridiculous what they want in taxes these days, there isn't much they don't tax.

Haven't heard from you in ages. I know you got your hands full right now. Just know your in our thoughts! (Hugs)Indigo
