Feeling Better!

YEAH!!! Day 3 and everybody is healthy.

It's been a long couple of weeks, riddled with pink eye, flu, ear infections, and other weird things.

So far hubby, son, and I have managed to stay away from it. My poor girl has taken the brunt of all the illness.

I have had that poor girl at the doctor more in the last 3 weeks, than I have in her whole life for being sick. She was such a healthy baby. She got her first dose of antibiotic last week when she had her ear infection.

But, by golly, I think she's feeling better. She's got that sparkle back in her eye, that silly little giggle she has, and she's managed to throw a snowball or two at Mom.

She's also finally getting her appetite back after hardly eating anything over the weekend. She's eating me out of house and home!!! And, of course, its time for me to go grocery shopping, so I hardly have ANYTHING to feed her. Tomorrow is Pizza at school, and she wants some, so I know she's feeling better. =)

Advice?? Or Not So Much

SO, I'm just really irritated with some stuff right now.

I am so tired of being called for advice. Really....if you want advice, then take it. I'm really not as dumb as I look.

So next time, you call me for advice, please do me a favor, take it.....and then...Don't call me back asking for the same advice on the same subject, and expect me to be chipper about repeating myself. My opinion didn't change.

Then don't get mad when I'm in a bad mood. I'm tired of everyone expecting me to be the chipper one. I have bad days too.

Don't take this personal, it's not directed at anyone specifically. It's just been some things that have been building and building for a very long time now.

Instead of venting at the refrigerator....I'm venting on my blog. =)

I really do love you all!

Okay...No More Fish

Okay...really, I've tried and I've tried, but I just can't bring myself to like fish.

I've been wanting to try Tilapia for a while now, just couldn't bring myself to do it. Well, last week, the grocery store had a really good sale on it, so I bought some.

Tonight, I cooked it. I didn't like, Hubby didn't like it, the kids didn't like it.

I'm doing pretty good, hubby can't complain....2 bad meals in 7 years. I just wanted to try something different, you know.

For some reason, I just cannot acquire a taste for fish. I've tried it all, and I like none.

My Kids

I am the mom to 2 children. A 5 year old girl, and an almost 2 year old boy.

Both of my kids are so special to me. Even though they have the same bloodlines, they are so different.

My daughter, has been so easy from day one. I'm blessed to have had her. I'm glad God granted me permession to raise her. Her personality is so sweet. She is such a big girl, and she loves to help. This year we put her in k4 at a Christian School nearby. She is learning so fast, and it just amazes me to watch her grow, watching her little brain just try to absorb everything life is throwing at her. I'm excited for her to get saved at an early age and watch what God will do in her life. She's been asking so many questions about salvation lately. I'm excited for the day it all sinks in.

My soon-to-be 2 year old keeps life entertaining. A different kind of blessing, but he does keep me on my toes. He's such a boy, and I'm so thankful for that. He' s a little more stubborn than his big sister, but that's not a bad thing right? We'll see. Underneath all that boy though, is a cuddly, lovey boy who loves to give hugs and smooches to Mom, Dad, and Sissy. Oh, and he loves his big trucks and basketball. He is so outgoing. It will be fun to watch him grow up too.

I'm so blessed to have these two in my life.

They say time really flies after you have kids, and that is no joke. It has continued to cruise, since school has started.

Before I know it, I'll be attending their graduations.

Spring Fever

Spring Fever--

Does anybody else see that endless blanket of snow? It seems like there has been snow on the ground since October. I think this is the most snow I have ever seen in my life.

It's just been really hard being couped up in the house, not being able to get out either because of bad roads or because it's been so cold.

Yesterday, the weather warmed up so nicely. It was beautiful, the sun was shining, just enough of a glimpse of spring to reaffirm that it's coming.

But guess what? Another snow storm on the way, that's supposed to leave us with about 8 inches and the wind is gonna blow. So I need to bundle up my kids and get to the store.

I'm ready for Spring!
