Disney Update

I have been back in forth about if we should go on vacation or not. My biggest fear is Tinleigh having a reaction or just not being happy because we are away from home. So after talking it over with Brian we have come up with the idea of driving to Atlanta which is an 8 hour drive, staying the night with his Aunt and going to the Aquarium the next day. After the Aquarium leaving and driving the 6 hour drive to Disney. I am fine with this, it brakes the trip up. So after we discuss this I check my email and received a pin code from Disney. It's for a room discount. Our stay would only be $220. You really can't beat that.

We have a have sat down and figured up that we will need $1700 for this trip. This includes gas, Aquarium admission, hotel, Disney admission, Sea World admission, food and gifts. We only have $637 saved right now. We need to save $1063 in a couple months. Plus I have to book the hotel by July 10th in order to get this discount.

Upcoming News

Sorry for the lack of posts. Ainsleigh is fully recovered now after being sick for some time. Finally a trip to the ER got her better. The girls both celebrated their birthdays the 17th and the 19th. We were at Riley Children's Hospital yesterday for an appointment for Tinleigh. She is not gaining any weight. We are going to try some new foods over the course of the next few weeks.

Which bring me to the "Upcoming News" part. I am going to be launching a new blog here in the next few weeks. One that is solely for food allergies. It has been lay on my heart to really put everything down that we are going through. We really struggle and I want to be able to help others who are just starting out.

I will be keeping "Love Peace and Saving" but if you want to know what we are eating and how Tinleigh's progress is going please come check out the new blog. I will be posting to let you all know when it is up and going. Thank you for being so patient with me.

My Sweet Little Ainsleigh

She did awesome at the eye Dr yesterday. I was so proud of her! The Dr said that her eye is functioning normally and looks fine. But, she never went into detail about why her eye is not opening all the way. She goes back for a follow up Monday.

I can not tell you how worried I am about her. I have all these visions running through my head. Does she have a UTI? (the antibiotic she is on will fix that) Does she have some sort of cancer? This one haunts me. It gives me chills. It's any parents worst nightmare.

As of last night she spiked another fever. I am going to go check on her this morning again and get her up. If she spikes another one I am calling the on call Dr. I pray that I am over reacting. Please God, Make me be wrong!!!!!

Ainsleigh has an eye appointment this afternoon. Once we find out anything I will post.


Here we are Friday and Ainsleigh isn't improving. We were back at the Dr yesterday and if she hadn't made an improvement by this morning then she was going to refer her to an eye Dr . Please pray she doesn't have anything serious going on. I'm worried! :(

I will keep everyone posted once I find something out.

p.s. I'm so sorry this has turned into a depressing blog, it's not what I had in mind. I guess it's just life's card I was dealt right now.

The Verdit is in

I took Ainsleigh to the Dr yesterday afternoon. Apparently there is something going around. Her Dr said most of her patients today were brought in with fevers and no other symptoms. Anyway, she said that she doesn't have pink eye but does have some kind of infection. She gave her eye drops and if her eye isn't better by Friday she will call out an oral antibiotic. Ainsleigh did wake up in the middle of the night again burning up again. Hopefully it passes soon.

I called the shelter for Yoda and I have to call back again today to speak with the manager. The person I talked to said she didn't think it would be a problem to take him in but just wanted to make sure. So I will be calling them back this afternoon. Today I need to really catch up on somethings since I have not got anything accomplished the last two days. We are suppose to meet my Aunt and Sister's at the park today for lunch so hopefully the rain holds off.

That's how I feel right now. Sorry I haven't posted my Disney Fund update, but I haven't even counted up what the total is that I am adding. My mind has been elsewhere. We have been thinking long and hard about what we are going to do with Yoda. We can not afford to keep giving him the care he needs. We are going to call the Humane Society and see if we can take him there. It is whats best for my family, I have to many things on my plate right now.

One of those is getting Tinleigh the best care I can give her. Yesterday I called to get her a referral to a pediatric allergist. I think this is the best thing we can do for her now. I just want to know exactly she is allergic to. Now that she is not eating baby food she has been having a lot of reactions. I have since taken away wheat and gluten and she is back to sleeping through the night and acting normal. But I want to make sure this is her problem and not another ingredient. I am trying to do what is best for her.

This afternoon I will be taking Ainsleigh to the Dr. She woke up in the middle of the night last night on fire, her temp was 103. She vomited once and then woke up this morning fine. Until about an hour or so later she just laid on the couch and wouldn't eat or drink. It looks like she has pink eye. :( But, I called the Dr and the nurse told me to bring her in today because it sounds like she has something else going on beside the pink eye. :(

It's hard to believe that Ainsleigh will be 3 and Tinleigh will be 1 next week. I sure hope whatever Ainsleigh has she is over if by her birthday and that Tinleigh doesn't get it. I am still trying to get their party stuff together. I can't wait to eat some cake!!! Hmmmmm.........I can taste it right now. :)

June 6: Mother-in-laws birthday. We took her to dinner $18.61

Exciting News!!!!

I just got word that we are canceling our big family vacation this year. While most of you might be asking "Why is this exciting?"

Because we are going to......................................Disney!!!! :)

Let the planning begin. I have another deposit into our savings jar. I will be back later to post how much it is.

No Spend Update

Today is June 5th. This day 6 years ago I married my best friend. Happy Anniversary Hubby!!! Just because it's our anniversary doesn't mean we go hog wild. We never have. We might get take out tonight but we are already cutting it close till Hubby get paid next Friday.

June 2nd: stayed home no money spent

June 3rd: Hubby took the car to Walmart to get his flat tire fixed and to pick up a few groceries we needed there. He didn't get the tire fixed because they turned him away! He did spend 26.88 and got everything on my list. :)

June 4th: Yesterday we were suppose to have Hubby's cousin and fiance over from dinner. I also needed to go to Kroger to get my fruits and veggies and a few other things since Tinleigh will no longer eat baby food. I asked my Mother-in-Law if I could borrow her car so I could get the rest of the stuff for dinner. Needless to say his cousin had to cancel at the last minute. :( I spent 30.28 a Kroger.

Total for groceries so far is: 57.16

Drama, Drama

Last week I talked about our vacation plans. We have for sure decided that we are cancelling our trip to Gulf Shores. We just don't want to wait till last minute and no be able to go. We did talk this past weekend about trying to go to Myrtle Beach in September. With so many people going on a vacation there is no pleasing everyone. One couple doesn't want a beach vacation, some people can't move it up. I totally understand being frustrated but it's a natural disaster, we can't help that there is an oil leak they for some reason no one can fix right now.

With one couple already backing out and another possible couple not going because they might not be able to move their vacation time up, we are most likely going to Disney. :) :) I am excited, I really hope we can go. Ainsleigh has being asking what I am looking at one the computer. I told her we might be going to see Mickey and she started jumping up and down. Either way if we go to Myrtle Beach or Disney we have 15 weeks to save up for it. I have had some money I was saving, not for any particular reason. Just loose change and left over cash. So far out total is $310.25. I will be updating each time I add money to our vacation fund. I sure hope we can come up with all the money is 15 weeks.

No Spend Day 1

Here we are June 2nd. This year is flying by quickly, I can't believe we are 6 months from Christmas. As I talked about a couple weeks ago, June is going to be a No Spend month for us. We still have a lot of expenses going out this month but we are trying to spend as little as possible.

June 1: I bought a roll of stamps to mail out Ainsleigh and Tinleigh's birthday party invites. $44

I usually buy stamps every couple months but there is no way a book of stamps would have been enough for the party so I got a roll of them.
