I am so happy it is Friday! The sun is shinning here, but it is cold outside. High today will be 49.

Earlier in the week we did have some nice warmer weather, where Jack got to play outside at his friend's house. He is beginning to love the dirt.

I re-painted a picture for in Jack's room. This is Before...

This is after!

I really wanted to re-do his room with a theme, but don't think it will be. He likes too many things. Can't choose just one. =)

Wednesday after school Sam fell off a scooter and got scraped up pretty good. Some how she scraped up her hip. Both hands, both elbows and her knee. She doesn't handle pain well, so it has been constant topic when she is home.

To DO List Today:
Clean off desk
Keep adding to yard sale pile!

I hope you have a wonderful Weekend!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My kids did wear green today, but I did not. I didn't even get pinched either! =)

Jack has pneumonia, so we are doing the neb every 4 hrs and he is on antibiotics for 10 days.
Today he was doing much better but still has that bad cough. Sam is also coughing now, oh and so am I.

The hubby is out of town on business. So I am trying to do some crafty things!

Samantha goes to the Dr. tomorrow to get measured for her brace. I hope Jack is good in the Doctor's office.

I am getting excited that my parents will be her in 1 month!

Just ordered my Dad's b-day gift, he is turning 60 on Tuesday!

It was a beautiful day today! I hope the same is in store for tomorrow!

Samantha's Orthopedic doctor appointment went about as we thought, I guess. She has 2 curves in her spine, so they cancel each other out, that's why she doesn't stand crooked.
But she will get fitted for a brace, and have to wear it for 23 hours a day. Good news is only for a year - year & half. The plan is to STOP it from getting worse, and pray it works. So she can avoid surgery. Her spine also twist, so that makes the ribs twist, so if that gets worse it can crowed her lung & heart, and cause problems when she is older. I think she realizes how important it is to wear the brace, but I am sure I will have to be the nagging mom. They will call us with the appointment to go get fitted, then we go back to the Orthopedic, to make sure it is right.

I plan on going to the grocery store and then relaxing today.

Yesterday, I was sick with a really bad stomach bug. I did manage to get to the craft show with Brenda and the kids. I got a few things. But I didn't last very long, I had to lay down.

Jack is sick with a bad cough and wheezing, also complaining of a stomach ache.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday! I am so glad the time has changed, Jack won't be getting up at 5am now only 6.

Friday, March 11, 2011

My thoughts and Prayers are with the people that have been struck today with disaster. Japan, Hawaii, and the West Coast. I am so grateful my Sister & her family is home safe and sound, She came home on Sunday from Hawaii.

Today I woke to my back still hurting, note to self: I cannot lift the dog 4+ times in a day, my back can't handle it.

Jack is watching Nemo on Disney, I am not sure he has ever seen it all. I hope that will keep him quiet for a few minutes!

The Kids went to the Dentist yesterday, Sam did great! No cavities! Jack wouldn't get in the chair at all! I hope next time is better.

I am trying to figure out Jack's room, I wish it could look like a boys room out of a magazine, but I am wondering if that is really even possible! And he is no help he changes his mind daily.

I am working on a few projects.
a) Sam's school Scrapbook
b) Art for Jack's walls (I am attempting to paint something)
c) Make a photo wall upstairs hallway

The Hubby took off today, Sam goes to the orthopedic today about her Scoliosis. We are hoping her spine isn't too bad and will just have to wear a brace for a while. Then we are going to the movies to see MARS NEEDS MOMS.

NOTE: Make sure Markers are all Washable! ;)

Wow, Monday

Today was defiantly a Monday. I had to run to a few stores that were not very kid friendly and I sure got an earful from the little boy that had to ride with me. After the second store he told me we weren't going in any more stores, and we were going home! Oh, the joy's of having a 3 & 1/2 yr old with a mouth! Like for instants when the third store we stopped at was Farm Fresh, always starts out as "I want to ride in the car one" I say "NO" (sorry, I can't stand them I just think of all the germs) Then I try to ignore him and then I notice he is gone. Yep, he went to get the car one himself! So then I say "OK, but you HAVE TO stay inside the car." He agrees. So I proceed to the deli to get some lunch meat. I notice he is making honking noises. I try to ignore. Then a few minutes later he is climbing out of course. So I inform him he will be going to time-out when we get home. He doesn't care. So we make it down a few more isles, then proceed to the check out. The little boy is now out of the car, walking to the candy by the check out, he grabs gum. I tell him "no." He throws it up on the conveyor belt, into the items that belong to the man in front of me. I inform the boy that that man will not be buying it for him either. Then the boy got back into the car I remove the gum. Then he gets back out of the car and tells me I need to get some other kind of gum, I tell him no, he says "I'm going to stay there until I buy it." I say "well, I am leaving." Then the boy wants to ride on top of the car. I inform him he cannot ride there. I tell him I need his help carrying the bags out, and hand him a bag. This is the best, are you ready for it? So walking to the car the boy informs his mother, that if she ever treats him rude like that again in Farm Fresh she will have to stay there. The mother says "oh, I don't think so I have the keys and driver's license." Then he says, "You are not being a good mom, when we get home I am going to bust you up." I inform the boy he will be going to time out for a long time when we get home for talking like that. So the whole way home he tell me, he isn't going to give me anymore kisses ever. We get home he gets out of the car, his Papa happens to be coming out of our house as we are going in and he says again, I'm going to bust you up, We come in the house and the little boy goes to time-out.

Later this afternoon, pick up Sam. Jack has a Re-check appt. from Saturday when I took him and they said he had the FLU. Gave him the Tamiflu, Seems to be doing better. Yep, I would say back to normal 3yr old self. Then I ask the dr to look at the rash by his face. She looks at it then looks at his hands, Yeah, that looks like hand, foot and Mouth. I think to myself::::GREAT:::::: This kid isn't even in school yet, are you kidding me! So we get back to the car, I notice him stick his hand down his pants and then pick his nose and then stick his finger in his ear, Sam and I look at each other and say No wonder he has Hand, Foot, Mouth!


Oh, and Sam is learning Family Life. Today was Day 1, she learned Don't have Sex! For some reason she thought that was so funny.

This is pretty much how it goes every day!
