Car problems

Fake wood
I wanted to blogg about this the other day but since I'm like never home, I just have to do it all in one day. On Monday after my Dr. appointment, Mianna and I decided to go to the commissary to get food. We got about 175 bucks of food, got it all loaded in the car and then went to start the car and it wouldn't start. I had to call for roadside assistance and it took 45 min. In the meantime we had to take all the cold stuff like ice cream, milk and meat, back into the store for them to hold it for us. Pop a Lock finally came and jump-started my car. We drove home just fine. I got up the next morning on Tuesday and went to work. I left work around noon since I had a dentist apt for Mianna and I had to go gas the car first. After I got gas in it didn't want to start, but then I tried again and I got it started. I went home to pick up Mianna and lets just say I had to leave my car on at the dentist office. While they gave Mianna her cleaning I ran around the corner to a car shop and had the battery tested, sure enough it was really low. They didn't have my size battery but I was able to find it at Wal-Mart. I had to leave Mianna in the running car, so that no one would steal it while I ran in to buy a battery. We made it home safe, let the car cool down and then Mianna helped me and we changed the battery out. After all of that I had to get dressed and ready for my second job and made it up there on time. I had no radio the entire drive and the next few days, till I figured out how to input the code for my anti thief radio. Now I have make sure my emissions sets it self back to normal after a few days of driving. It's crazy how car are so computerized now. I was happy that I didn't have to reset the hands fee system for my cell phone. I did have to reset the clock and that was all. The car is driving like a champ now and it's hard to believe I have so many miles on it and it's only 2 years old. I have to keep an eye on my alternator I’m sure it will go next. I do love my car, but not sure if it will be enough room with a teenager, and a baby car seat in the back. I might trade it in for a bigger vehicle.

Rich on his first trip

On Wed. Richie's ship pulled out to sea, it's just a short det for them to go load equipment in New Jersey and then they take a few days to go to Main, for the Lobster festival and then I guess back to VA. I'm waiting for his call since he said they should pull in some time this afternoon. Mianna is asleep on the couch; you would think she is the PG, with all the sleeping she does. I swear, when Rich was home for a few days, he was just the same way. Everyone around me gets sleepy and all the symptoms, Not me, I'm just find. I fell pretty well. I do have cramps from time to time and last night was pretty bad. I get it low in my pelvic area and it hurts enough to bring my eyes to water. No morning sickness, only slight nausea in the evening, but it goes away as soon as I eat some thing. I have had a slight problem brushing my teeth in the morning but I think it's more mental and I just have to focus when I brush my teeth. Ehhehe. I don't know, what ever. I need to call the hospital to make my next apt. And that will be about 3-5 weeks from now. I'm supposed to make a dentist apt too. Anyways, all is well here and we are just chilling at home. I gave my two weeks notice at my second job and so that will all be over by the end of the month. Next month is my B-day and I look forward to my Mom and cousin coming out to visit from Cali.

Today I had my first visit with my Dr, and got to see the baby. It was such an awsome feeling to see the little guy bouncing around and kincking and stretching and we even got to see the heart beating really fast. We didn't get to hear the heart beating like we wanted to, but it's okay. We did see toes, fingers, legs, tummy area and a Big Big head, oya a little nose. so cute.

New front yard

On Saturday Richard and I decided to hit he fron yard hard and clean it up. We worked for 6 long hours and pulled over 300 lb of weeds. I got happy with my new electric trimmer and was playing Edward scissor hands with the shrubs and trimmed the hell out of the bushed and also a tree in the front yard. After clearing out all the junk we got new mulch and filled in a few spots with some sod. Rich also power wahed the sidewalk and the sides of the house.

Happy Surprise

I woke up around 2am when I heard my bedroom door open, I could only see a tall figure walking in, I was like half asleep and I thought to my self, Mianna sure looks tall. It was Richard, He surprised us and drove down from Norfolk yesterday. We just finished having breakfast about an hour ago. It so nice to have him home even if its only for a day or 2. The house feels so complete now that he is here. I really missed my baby. I'll have to break out the camer and take some pictures.

4th of July

This year we didn't drive out to down town to watch the fireworks, but instead we went to the pier in Green Cove and got to see over 20 different fireworks shows from a distance. There were a few that were close to us and also some houses in the area were letting off some big fireworks. We stocked up on fireworks the day before and also had some from last year, so we lit a bunch in the driveway and had so much fun. There was this one call M88 salute and when we lit it, there was a small sparkle and it seemed to do nothing, but as we turned our backs to walk back in the house it let off the loudest pop noise, that sounded like a gun shot, we screamed so loud and ran toward the house. We were busting up so hard and just could stop. We had about 5 of the m88's but didn't want to light anymore. We had a purple rain fountain and lots of alien looking firework, jitterbug or jumping bugs and all sorts of fireworks. It's pretty cool out here, because it's not against the law like in some parts of the world, so we had so much fun playing with fireworks.
