I had a bit of sticky fun a few days ago decorating this wood "V" I picked up at Michaels awhile back. The paper and ribbon were already here in my stash, so I started tearing and gluing. So much fun! Gotta do more of these.
Last week I took the twins in for their first orthodontist visit. They're 13 now and really do need to begin getting their teeth straightened while they're still growing. Older brother, Brendan, is already a regular visitor of Dr. Brown's. So that makes three kids in braces at once, three separate orthodontist bills, no insurance. Sigh. You know how I thought maybe I could go without sleeping? Think we could all go without eating too? Lol!
As hard as it is to make these payments, it's a whole lot easier to pay for three sets of braces now than it was when our oldest first got her braces. At that time my dh was just beginning his business and money was practically nonexistent. Ten years later and lots of unbelievably hard work (mostly on dh's part) have put us in a better situation. At least well enough that three kids in braces is doable; thank you Lord!
In fact, we have just started leveling the ground in preparation to begin building a new home for Mid-Columbia Insurance! Most of last year was spent in negotiation for the land and then wrangling with the various city government offices. All that has been dealt with and if everything goes according to schedule, the new office will be finished in May. Yeah, right. Well, at least we've started!
