Today is my birthday, I am officially in my 30's. Its weird, I wasn't really looking forward to my birthday, but now that its here its cool, lol. I don't feel old and I still feel like I wont be old until I hit my 70's, so why did turning 31 make me nervous? no idea.

We are heading down to southern utah tomorrow for my family reunion. We will be enjoying some nice hot and dry weather ;). I look forward to hanging out with family and watching them all get drunk, ha. Lots of activities planned to keep the kids busy and hopefully out of trouble. We'll be close to a lake for swimming and cooling off and I get to go arrowhead hunting, I absolutely love finding arrowheads :)

Our basement keeps flooding, stupid old house and pipes. Our landlords, are of course, out of town, so we have been dealing the best we can. We are supposed to go watch a movie tonight, without kids, but may forgo it in order to finish the clean up and packing. It is taking much longer than planned since I have to ration how much water goes down the drain :S

I am handling my vitamins well now that I eat a full meal when I take them. I was going to switch to nighttime since thats when I had to take my prenatals, but I don't go to bed at the same time and some nights I'm awake for hours and I know puking would commence. I'm feeling a bit more energized today so I hope I'll be back to my normal self next week, just in time for a long work week and M's 6th birthday.

School starts in 20 days, not that I'm counting down ;). And I'm very excited! Two in school full time and maybe preschool for little man, very cool.

Edited to add:

We started the corn food challenge on Sunday. This is Little Man eating his first popcorn, ever! I had to snap a pic and then make him eat it away from me. I felt so bad giving corn to him, it has been 4 years of fiercely watching everything he eats and here I am giving him something that would cause him so much pain if he was still allergic. So far so good though :) woohoo!!
