Two thumbs up for 2 Peas

So, I heard back from customer service at 2 Peas today after messaging back and forth a few times yesterday and trying to get my situation explained and they said they were going to send me a new pack of the Prima journaling cards. That is WAY cool and I did NOT expect that. I mean, it was only a few cards and really it wasn't a big deal, but at the same time, shipping is just so high and if I'm paying that much, I should get my package intact and undamaged. Either way, I'm very happy with the way they handled the situation and that it was resolved quickly, so 2 Peas has not lost a customer in me. I'm sure they'll be happy to hear that! Miguel....not so much! LOL :)

I managed to do a LO today. I had printed out pics and hoped to work on it last night, but that didn't happen. Did it today though after I worked out. Which btw, I have been forgetting to post about. I'm STILL doing the least 5 times a week. I think it's been like 3 months now. I see a difference, I feel a difference, just not the fast, big changes I was really hoping for. I am trying to figure out how I can find some time to go walking/try running again somewhere nearby. Maybe like after my mom comes home from work, I can leave Mikey for about an hour or so. I'm just not seeing the same results with biking that I was with running. My legs look AWESOME, but I need to work on the rest of me too! I wish we could afford a gym membership. Well, Miguel has one, but I just can't see paying like $60 or so for the both of us...that's just too much money that can be used elsewhere.

Anyway, so can't remember if I posted a couple of weeks back about Mikey having allergy problems...sneezing, stuffy, what not...the usual...and we had taken him to see a ACTS friend of Miguel's in fact and I had explained to him how Mikey was snoring and seemed to sometimes "catch his breath" at night while he was sleeping and he had brought up the subject of sleep apnea and how that could come about with having large tonsils like Mikey has. Anyway, he advised us to change Mikey's allergy meds to something stronger than the OTC stuff we had been giving him. So we switched to Claratin and at first it seemed to help and there were a few nights there where I noticed more and more that he was breathing "easier", but then a few more nights passed and it seemed to progressively be getting worse. He is really snoring loudly, kind of choking or "gasping" for air while he's sleeping and I can feel his chest really "pulling in" when he's trying to take a breath. It totally has me freaking out and checking him every few minutes through out the night which has left me with VERY little sleep. I checked out his tonsils today and they look SO big...I mean literally touching each other and he looks to have some small dark red and white-ish spots on them. We are taking him to the same ped tomorrow and asking more questions about the sleep apnea and the possibility of getting his tonsils removed because I really think that is what we are going to have to do because it's just not getting better. I can't even imagine what it must feel like to not be able to breathe properly. I know it's a fairly simple, quick procedure...I had mine out when I was about 8, but the thought of him having to be put under is totally freaking me out. So please keep Mikey in your prayers. I'd really appreciate it!
Okay, I think that's all for now! More later.
