OK! For all those who care, Morris and I have set the date! May 22, 2020.... Just Kidding. It is May 22, 2010. We are getting married in Florida. There is this cute little resort that will do the whole thing for us, we just tell them the colors and show up. I will be putting out more details as it gets closer. I am trying to be excited!!! (spending money is fun, if you have it)

We are looking at the cost of accommodations because this is a destination wedding for most of us. There are a lot of options. Also, because we will be in the greater Orlando area, there are options for some to turn it into a family vacation. The hotels all have free shuttles to and from the major theme parks like Disney, Universal, Sea World and Bush Gardens.

We are planning to send out "Save the Date" invites by the end of this summer. How FUN!

OK, I think that is enough rambeling for today.

Hello all, it is time for me to update everyone on what has been going on. We have had a wild few months in our home. In September, Morris got sick and went into the hospital where he found out that he had Type 1 diabetes. This is strange because this is the type that is diagnosed in juviniles. He is so not a kid, rather a grown man. He then was hospitalized for this - because his blood sugar was so high, for about a week. He then came home and was fine for a few days. Then he started having chest pains. Back to the hospital he went. This time with pulomanary embulisms (that is blood clots in the lungs) and a massive lower leg thrombosis (that is a blood clot in his leg). So, he had to stay in the hospital again. He was released in the middle of October. Since then, he has not been able to work. This made it tough for me. Now I am the only income into our homes. I had to slow down on my schooling to make more time to get more money.

Christmas was interesting. It was Jordin's first one. She was more interested in trying to pull down the tree than even looking at the presents or opening them. Thomas wanted to open everything under the tree - even if it was not his. Marcus, he just wanted to hold the camera and take all the pictures.

Jordin is finally cutting her first tooth at 10 months! I am so excited. Pretty soon I will not have to make everything mushy for her. Marcus is doing better now that he is working with his Asperger's/Autisim specialist in school and he is improving by leaps and bounds every day. The down side is that there are lists all over the house. This way he is able to do self-help functions like bathing and dressing. Due to the paper on the walls, I cannot hang pictures because it distracts him from doing anything but staring at them all day. A small price. Thomas is loving pre-school and is starting to learn to read.

Well, I think that this is enough information for one post. I will do more later.
