THE PUMP

A



We finally got Boston an Insulin Pump! After paying our high out of pocket money for Boston in 2007, We got him a pump before the year ended so we didn't have to pay a dime! If we would have waited it would have been $1200.00. That's 20%. Thank goodness I am a smart thinker and thought about getting 1 week before New Years Day! Otherwise we would have had to pay! How this pump works is, we don't have to give him shots anymore! He still has to get a finger prick but no more shots! This is just so much easier. All we have to do it type in his blood glucose level and how many carbs he eats and it calculates how much insulin he needs and pumps it right in! Every 3 days we have to change the spot where it hooks to his bottom! (As you can see in the picture) It is so funny cause it looks like he has a pager! I am sure I get a lot of weird looks like. "Why would they give a two year old a pager". At least until they see the long tube that hangs down! It has helped him so much be at a normal level and it make us feel so much better to know that he is in better control!! We actually put his pump in his monkey leash when we go out cause sometimes it's so heavy on his pants they fall down! That's only because I buy him bigger pants! This is the smartest thing we did and I am so glad we did it when we did! He is jsut so cute with it! Next time you see him you will laugh because it is just so crazy to see a 2 year old have a pump

I know I know it's about time I worte a new blog!!

These past few weeks have been crazy! I just started a job cleaning churches! Just to keep busy and have my spending cash! And I am trying to save for Marcs birthday gift with my own hard working money! Sorry I can't tell you what it is, cause he looks at our blog! But I am trying to get it for him before his birthday so he can make use of it in the summer! (His B-Day is Christmas Day) Anyways I wake up at about 4:30am and work until 9 or 10! I love it! Then I come home and get my kids breakfast and play with them and put them down for a nap. (If they sleep) I sleep when they do!

The other day I was so tired, my body isn't used to gettng up so early, I fell asleep on Bostons bed and low and behold he now knows how to unlock doors and got out of our house and was playing a few houses down in his diaper and PJ top. Yes it was chilly out. Worst part of all our Bishop drove by with his son and they saw him playing. Breckon, his son, brought him back to my house. For those of you who don't know our Bishop, Marc and him are the exact same. I mean there personalities. Our Bishop called Marc and said "I need to meet with you and Marc about your children" and then told him the whole story. He was just joking about going to talk with him. Marc and Kasey (our bishop) are really good friends. In fact sometimes I think he would rather talk to him then me!

STORAGE Are you Prepared?

How many of you have a food storage? I know I now do! With my tax return money I have been getting stocked up with storage that I never had before! Now is the time to buy for all your winter warm clothes!

At walmart they have there sweats going for $1.00 that is a steal of a deal! Also for those who have girls they have a whole snow suit outfit for $15 dollars there but I only found them at the Orem Walmart everywhere else is sold out! They are normally 40.00 dollars! Get them while they last!

At Cabelas online they have kids and infants snow boots that are really great boots for 17.oo which are normally 40 or 50 I can't remember! One thing to keep in mind is that you want to get a size that will last for a few years cause you can always stuff the toes! Cabelas also has their pocket knifes buy on get one free! Get them before they are gone!

Today Heidi and I went to a place called Emergency Essentials! They have great stuff there on sale right now! We got toliets, MRE food, Emergency sleeping bags, I also got Marc and I these really nice bags for 40.00 everywhere else they are 100.00 They will fit just enough stuff for a 72 hour kit and maybe more!

Right now what I have is a bunch of canned for items a backpack for each kid and ourselves and a family bag! Each bag consists of these thus far!

1 Backpack (watch for these to go on sale after the new school year)
1 mess kit ($6.00 at walmat)
1 set of long lasting candles (($2.00 at walmart)
2 sets of hand, feet and etc warmers (Also at walmart for 1.50 but you can find these anywhere)
1 survival drinking mug ( Cabelas has these as well for about $13.00) This comes with a compass, waterproof matches, ponco, blanket, whistle, and more!
1 toohbrush
1 toothpase
socks
boots
warm clothes
coloring book and crayons
first aid kit
MRE meals
Sleeping bag

There is much more things you need but all cannot fit in the bags. That was just for individuals!
Who knows what might happen in the next years to come! so the question is ARE YOU PREPARED? What could happen if your not? Marcs mom is copying a list for me that you only have to spend 5 dollars a week on food stoarge! (If anyone wants a copy I am more than willing to caopy it for you just let me know!)thats about 20-25 dollars a month! Thats nothing! That 25 dollars a month could save you! I am not saying you have to go out a buy everything I did but at least start now and get things everytime you go grocery shopping! The first thing I started with was Backpacks so everything had a place to go!! I know that some people may think "I don't need a food storage right now nothing is happening!" What about those people in Louisana when Hurricane Katrina came? That is the best time to be prepared! You may not be able to take everything but at least you will have something! Don't put yourself into debt for it! You don't have to have everything at once just little by little! AGAIN are you PREPARED?

I must add Thanks to my sister-in-law Heidi she is the one that started me on this!!!
