Friday the merchandise I purchased from the Cafe Press store arrived and I couldn't be happier.....I just had to order some stuff before everybody else did....it is important to me that the image quality is good.
Tuesday, January 23, 2007
On another note, the Cafe Press store that I have up and running has been keeping me very busy with designs.....uploading the images is taking a bit longer but it's still working without problems.
I keep hearing about our wait times extending and am trying to push all that into the back of my head....the power of possitive thinking right!!!!??? My story is that we will travel in November...yea that's it November, yea, yea that sounds good. I'm sticking to my story. :) Mia might need another closet by then....this one is getting quite full of cute little girl clothes....shhhhh don't tell Gordon, I just keep filtering them into the house...............LIKE YOU DON'T DO THAT TOO. OK so shopping keeps me focused on Mia and not the waiting.

These are the instructions:
1) Find the nearest book (please try to keep it PG rated)
2) Open to page 123
3) Type lines 6-8 of said book
4) Tag three others
Here we go..........
The book I’m currently reading-yes I really am reading this…
Pediatric Education for Prehospital Providers. I have to re-cert in this next week.
Page # 123 states:
Toxins poorly absorbed by Activated Charcoal:
Simple Ions “ Iron, Lithium, Cyanide”
Simple Alcohols “Ethanol”
Strong Acids or Bases “Methanol”
The activated charcoal dose is 10 times the mass of theingested substance. However , because the actual amount of ingested material is usually not known, use 1 g/kg of the child’s body weight.
