Hammer's Jackpot Meme


You just won the mega powerball jackpot to the tune of 150 million dollars (after taxes)

1. What would be the very first thing you would do? Go in the bathroom and throw up.

2. Where would you choose to live? I would build my dream house with my dream studio somewhere beautiful and inspiring.

3. What kind of house would you live in? A bigger one than we have now with lots of storage space and a playroom.

4. What kind of car would you buy? An Escalade & a truck for Jason. Probably a fun car to, for date nights.

5. Where would you vacation? Italy would be # 1...but I'd love to travel all over if money wasn't an issue.

6. Would you have anything on your body fixed? I'd have all my muscles massaged into oblivion and laser eye surgery. Maybe laser hair removal so I didn't have to bother with tweezing/shaving.

7. What kind of hobbies would you engage in? I'd expand on photography big time and try anything that seemed interesting at least once for the experience. If I liked it, I'd keep it up. I'd also sign my kids up for things they'd want to try.

8. What charities would you donate to? Anything that called out to me....Children's Hospitals for sure.

9. Would you give money to your relatives? I'd pay off their houses if they owed on them and buy my parents something nice.

10.Would you run away from your current life? No.

11. Would you continue to work? Yes, but I'd have my own studio and I'd get my doula certification.

12. Would the money change you in any way? Obviously. It'd be a great feeling not to have to worry about money, but I would hope to be one of those rich people that you'd not know by their attitude that they're rich. Also, I could be more generous with my time if I could hire someone to do the cleaning and I could be more thoughtful and when I would see something that would be perfect for someone I'd be able to gift it to them, which I'd love. I love to get people things that make them happy. Hopefully, not in a negative way.

This N That

Brookelyn reminded me the other day that her birthday is coming up in "only 19 days!"
Me: "Do you have something in mind that you'd like for your birthday?"
Her: "Yes."
Me: "Well, what is it?"
Her: "Ummmm....a skate board."
Me: " A skateboard!"
Her: "yeah, a Barbie skate board."...and some stitches to go with it...!
Me: "Is there anything else you want?"
Her: " Yeah, a dog...a wittle one."

I can guarantee that she won't be getting either....Aaron, if you read this blog you DO NOT have my permission to buy Brookelyn a skateboard.....

Last night in meeting, we were sitting on the couch in front of a shelf with a bunch of eagle figurines and Trae was fake crying and pointing at them, getting his point across that he was afraid of them.

Tonight, we are heading to Sheboygan to meet up with Nate and Marsha, Steve and Pam, and my Mom and Dad and Brookelyn at a motel. The adoption hearing is tomorrow and we are going down to celebrate tonight, as they are headed to Georgia from the hearing. Mom and Dad are going to the museum in Milwaukee today instead of tomorrow and then staying at the hotel so Brookelyn can see her cousins and aunt and uncle before they go.

My gallbladder has been causing me a lot of excruciating pain. It started about a month ago pretty mild and is just getting worse. I am finding more and more reasons to really want this baby to come! I am trying not to complain, but the gallbladder along with my hips and back are killing me and making it hard to sleep so I am exhausted even though I "technically" slept for 9 hours.


The most exciting thing I have to post about:
I went to my doula's house that I had with Trae last night to do pictures of her Grandson and when I arrived I told her about my progress in the dilation and effacement department. She asked if I planned to have someone with me and I said only Jason. I then added that I'd love to have her, but I don't have the money to pay her. I wasn't hinting about her doing it free, with Trae we paid her gas money and got her a statue, but she loves doing it so much that if you can;t pay the $400 fee, she'll do it anyway. She said she'd love to be there, and I told her I didn't want to take advantage because I was really grateful to have her there with Trae and didn't feel like I could ask her again with out being able to pay her. Of course, she said she'd be honored and we left it at that. I did the shoot and then she wanted to pay me, which I wasn't having any of because I told her that I would be taking the pictures free because I owed her for Trae's birth anyway. She continued insisting, but of course I was not going to give her a price or accept payment. She finally said okay, but you better call me when you go in so I can be there for this baby. I am so relieved because she was so awesome (so was Jason) and I felt like she kept hm focused and I have been really afraid after seeing labor first hand a few weeks ago. So, I am so happy she'll be with us again.
