So, I know I've overwhelmed you with all of my Christmas pictures (sorry to those of you with dial up). But, it really is my favorite holiday and even more so now that I have children!
But, yesterday the mailman brought us right back to reality. We got a bill from the hospital for Alexis' birth. Yes, you read right, Alexis. She is 2 years and 8 months old and the hospital is finally done battling with the insurance company to get their payment and now they want ours too. This wouldn't be so bad if we weren't already making payments to another hospital for Isabel's birth.
While I feel extremely guilty that I'm not working right now and I'm just at home, I have to keep reminding myself that even though I'm not at work right now, I am saving us money because we aren't paying for a baby sitter and I'm drawing unemployment while I'm on lay off, so technically I'm making more money. So everyday I remind myself, "Jessica, you may not be bringing in your normal Walmart check, but you are still supplying income for your family." And like I said, we're doing just fine this way.
On another note, I've been posting a lot about Alexis and the cute things she says and haven't said much about Isabel, so I'm going to sit down and give you a good update on how she is doing soon.
