From God's Word Fridays(Feb 27, 2009)

Romans 8:31-39
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Weekend Recap(Feb 20-22, 2009)

Another not so exciting weekend. I do hope my kids get well and stay well for awhile so we can start enjoying weekends outside of the house again soon.

Friday February's 20, 2009

I woke up about 4am to find a very hot burning to the touch 3 year old curled up beside me in my bed, talking about a dream he had just had and he really was making no sense at all. At 6am I had to wake Princess up for school and took Little Man's temp and it was really high.. So I called the doctors office knowing they were not open but wanting them to fit him in so we wouldn't have to wait all weekend. Shortly after placing that call I got a phone call from the school asking me if I could sub at the 5th and 6th grade building.. So I said yes and woke up DH and told him I would need him to stay home with the sick kids.

Sweet Pea is off of school right now because of her Mono and Little Man sick again. So after getting Princess and Mr Man to school I went to work and DH got the call to take the sickies into the doctors.

Little Man tested positive for the flu and the rechecked Sweet Pea's spleen.. not such great news there.. it was a little swollen before on Friday it had doubled in size.. so now we are being very careful with her. i found this pic DH took while at the doctors and I didn't even ask him to do it.. guess I have him trained well the goo little husband of a blogger who wants pics in her posts LOL.

Friday after I got off work I picked up Little Man's prescription and came home to care for the kids and give DH a break.

I picked up the house and got dinner together.. Then Princess went to the movies with her friends.. When the movie was over I was the taxi mom who got to pick them up and take them to taco bell. Once I dropped them off I made a trip to walmart to pick up some Tylenol and Motrin for myself and DH. and then went back and picked the kids up and dropped them all off at there homes and came home and I was asleep before 11pm. Exciting I tell ya LOL..

Saturday February 21, 2009

The Excitement continued.

1st thing this morning I thought I would go and get a hair cut I was in need of a trim.. the lady wasn't really listening to me on how I just wanted a longer thin layer of bangs that laid just below my nose and she cut them short to where the really look like bangs and I really really don't like myself in bangs. I haven't had them above my nose in like 9 years. I guess I can live with them till they grow out but ugh..

Mr Man had indoor soccer today, just conditioning but he was running a slight fever himself and I am so over sick kids he said he felt fine but i wasn't letting him out of the house today I don't want that slight fever to turn into anything more then a random fever(is there even such a thing?) I only took his temp because DH hugged him and said he felt warm. My afternoon was spent caring for a clingy sick 3 year old and a girl with Mono who spleen can burst if she does anything to active.. but yet she isn't feeling sick so when she isn't sleeping and she has her energy she up and running and jumping.. I had to sit her down 3 times today and try to explain it without scaring her to badly.(oh I'm typing this on Saturday)

Sweet Pea, Little Man and I did get a nice 2 hour nap this afternoon.. Not something I was planning for myself but I needed it I guess.

This evening I ran to he store for cough drops because my throat is killing me. the kids all played and then complained they have nothing to do and they sat around complaining that my parents went to TX to see my sister without them and how unfair is that and all I heard was how much they wish they were in TX with there cousin A and little E..

Princess didn't get in on this poor me I'm sick and board and not in TX act, she had other plans and outing with her youth group. A half nighter at the YMCA from 7PM till Midnight.

It is 10PM Saturday as I type this part of my recap.. DH had fallen asleep Mr Man and Sweet Pea are playing Wii and Little Man is sound asleep on my lap. guess I'll need to wake DH up in about an hour, It's are turn to do the picking up from the youth group activity..

Oh Princess before heading out tonight used mt phone to take a picture of herself.. Silly girl should know if she uses my phone for such thing it will end up in the blog.

Sunday February 22, 2008

today I stayed in the house caring for sick kids and being sick myself.. I caught Little Man's flu, or at least that is what I think it is.. icky all over and all stuffed up, my whole body hurts and my head feels like it is going to pop. I have spent my time laying on the couch and sleeping in bed. Now I tell ya this has been one very exciting weekend recap LOL. I did shower and watch my hair and after washing it and letting it dry to it's natural wavy state(my hair never is straight unless I work at it, but it's not extremely curly either) the bangs didn't look half bad.. don't like it though when I don't have the wavy hair going along with them. I thought about taking another picture because it looks better then the one I took yesterday.. except I feel like crap and don't care to get up and do it.

So that is my Recap.

I do hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Time for a big update..

You all remember me talking about how DH's company might not make it though this hard economic times???
We found out last night that the company is going to close. they are going to do it over the next 4 to 6 weeks. They are laying off 1/2 the people there after next week.. DH is in that group of lay offs.. So as of Feb 28 he will no longer have a job and we will no longer have insurances.
Please Pray that we are able to find some sort of insurances at least for the kids quickly.. and that DH's finds another job soon.

It is sort of a scary time.. But we know that God has a plan for us though this even if at the moment we don't know what it is..

Update on my sick kids.
I'm not sure what I posted last about Sweet Pea.. Tuesday she had an appt and got her blood work results.. and it is for sure Mono and on Tuesday her spleen was a little swollen.. She was going to school 1/2 days not full days because of how tired she was getting..
Well her sleepiness seemed t have got worse and they now have her off school altogether.. which after being seen by the doctor today I think is a good thing.. Her spleen has gotten alot bigger since Tuesday and they don't really want her doing much of anything at all. They told us that we even need to be careful driving when she is with us because of hitting bumps in the roads, might rupture her spleen. ~sigh~
So pray for Healing for Sweet Pea.

Had Little Man back at the doctors today also. On Wed night early Thurs. morning he woke up with a fever again. Had it all day yesterday and when he woke up with it again this morning I figured might as well use are insurance while we still have it.. so took him in to see the doctor.. they did another flu test on him(last one was 1/30/09) this time it came back positive.. So my Little man now has the flu. So keep him in your prayers also..

So there is my update... Looking like my weekend recap might be me staying home with the sick kids yet again.. :-(

Weekend Recap( birthdays and valentine weekend 09)

This weekend seems to have been a little more like what I'm use too.. no more of that sitting around the house doing nothing with a ton of sick people.

Sweet Pea is still getting tired but she isn't sick. So we were able to get her birthday party in.. (after cancelling it twice) All but one girl showed up.. and Sweet Pea had a blast.
So the weekend

Friday February 13, 2009
Sweet Pea's birthday party.. The girls got to our house at 6:30pm two of them showed up around 5:30pm thinking that was the start time.. so they just played Wii with Sweet Pea until the rest got her.. during the party we ate pizza, played Wii, did air brushed Hannah Montana tattoo's, did make up and nails, did cake and gifts, made candy necklaces, watched two movies and then everyone was asleep. Girls woke up about 7:30am and ate breakfast, played more Wii and barbies and the party was over by 10AM Saturday.

I took over 100 pictures that night.. so once I sort them all, I think Wednesday Wordless post will be a slide show from the party.. so be looking for it.. I have alot of great fun pictures from this night.
Saturday February 14, 2009

Happy Valentines Day BTW!!!!!!!!!!!
After all the party kids left Sweet Pea fell asleep So we left Princess stay home and babysit her while the rest of us got dressed and headed off to Mr Man's last Basketball game. After the game he had a pizza party for his basketball team where they passed out the trophies.

That pizza party ended at 2:30pm and at 3pm I had my family showing up at our house to celebrate the girls birthdays. This was to be done a few weeks ago(since both of them have January birthdays) but with Sweet Pea so sick we had to push it back twice also.. Since we really had so much going on but wanted to get the party done.. we passed on the dinner thing and just did chips cake and family gathering time. that made things a little easier for me :)
Princess had to leave party way though the party to go to Volleyball(see the weekend I planned this party there was no basketball, pizza party or volleyball but plans changed when kids get sick so we just roll with it)

Sunday February 15, 2009
DH's 39th Birthday... or as he likes to call it his 4th anniversary of his 35 birthday ;-)
We went to church.. WE ALL WENT TO CHURCH!!!! you might not understand my excitement in this.. but this was THE FIRST time I have been able to go to morning service in 2009. between it being called off due to snow or ice, me being sick then the kids getting so sick.. this was first time I got to go and the first time we have all been well enough to all go..
After church we had a church chili dinner. We ate but didn't stay long for fellowship because SweetPea started to look not to well but when she told us she was tired we knew we needed to leave. We got home and she slept for 2 hours.
Sunday evening.. I had a nice evening at home writing this post and getting pictures loaded online and watching tv and reading.
DH for his birthday went out with Mr Man and his friend JW to watched a wrestling paid per view something or other I don't get into that crazy stuff.. and almost wish they wouldn't either but I guess it's a guy thing and I don't get it LOL. JW is spending the night when it is over(can you tell they are gone now and it is Sunday night while I'm typing this out)
Princess went to the movies with some friend and then they are all coming back here to spend the night also.. So I'll once again have a house full of kids, just the way I like it.. everyone having fun.
So yes this weekend seems more like a weekend I'm use to..

How was your weekend.. go post about it and link it back up here so I can read it.. or if you wish just tell me about your weekend in the comment section..

Hope it was a good one.

From God's Word Week #2

Psalms 18:1-3

1 I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Thursday 13 (Sweet Pea)

For T-13 this week I thought I would share with you what Sweet Pea has been up too the last 2 weeks.
Thursday January 29,2009 - Thursday February 12, 2009
1) She got sick and Pretty much slept though her birthday January 29, 2008

2) she did wake up a little big to open her gifts.
3) and to blow out candles. this was her 7th birthday.
4) on Friday January 30, 2009 she was still sick so we took her to the doctors Little Man was sick also so he had a visit with the doctor also.
5) This was the 1st of many visits over the last two week.. we were in the office Jan 30, Feb.2, Feb 4, Feb 9 and Feb 10.
6) at the 1st visit they said it was just a virus but she got worse and worse and started complaining about her ears. On the 2nd visit she had ear infections in both ears.. PLUS the virus. This is her on February 2, 2009

7) Here she is February 3rd
8)also from Feb 3rd.

9)since Sweet Pea was running a really high fever with this the doctor was keeping a close eye on her and we needed to go back to the doctors on Feb 4th.. At that time her ears were looking a little better but she was still 103.8 in the office and her lymph nodes in her throat were swollen. At this point they told me they were pretty sure she had Mono. here she is on Feb 4, 200910) Also on February 4.. Sweet Pea lost her 1st top front tooth. it wasn't her 1st lost tooth but it was the 1st of the 2 front teeth to fall out.. she was not in the mood for a while to smile for me to get a picture of it, she was just one very sick little girl so I waited until Saturday February 7th, 2008 to get the missing tooth picture. 11) I was able to get these pictures because after 12 days of running a high fever on Feb 7th her fever broke and she wasn't feeling so awful, still lifeless but not awful.. She went all Saturday morning and afternoon with no fever and then Saturday night had a fever of 101.9 which was still much lower then she was running.
12) She woke up Sunday February 8 with no fever and thankfully she hasn't ran a fever since. On Monday February 9, she was able to go back to school she had been out since January 27. But she had a 1:30 doctor appt. It was a follow up PLUS her 7 year check up. On the check up part she is now 45 lbs which is the 24% and 47 in. which puts her in the 37% for height. on the sick stuff, they said since her fever had broke she is on the mend, and her ears are cleared up.
Only when we got home at 2:30pm she passed out and slept till 7:30pm then woke up and was back to sleep by 9pm and slept without waking up till 10:30am Tuesday. So she was still really tired and still sleeping alot. Here is a picture of her Monday Feb 9, 2009 in the afternoon after we got back from the doctors.

13) she has been sleeping ALOT... So I called the doctor to see if maybe school was over doing it still, I just wasn't sure.. He said I could start her back slowly just use my judgement, he gave her a note letting the school know and also said no gym. But he also wanted more test run. I had let Sweet Pea sleep until she woke up on Tuesday Feb 10 (which was 10:30AM) and then took her to school at 11am when she got home at 3:30pm I had to take her over to the hospital for the blood work that the doctor wanted done we were in the waiting room for 1hour and 45 minutes and out of that time she slept on my lap for 1 1/2 hours and she was none to thrilled with the nurses waking her up to drawl her blood~sigh~ . We don't have the results yet because they had to be sent to a different lab. Wednesday Feb 11, she went to her 1st whole day of school, and seemed ok just a little tired when she got home she laid down and watched tv but didn't' sleep until 8:30pm when she went to bed.. Only today Thursday Feb 12, she was still really really tired when it was time to wake up for school so I let her sleep again she ended up sleeping till 10:30am again so she went to school at 11am tonight she seemed ok rested a bit but didn't sleep.. Tomorrow we are hoping for a full day of school.

So there you have it, how Sweet Pea spent the last two weeks.

Weekend Recap(2/6-8/2009)

Weekend Recap time again.. This has not been the most exciting weekend ever.. With a little girl with Mono there wasn't much running around this weekend.

Friday February 6, 2008

We had cancelled her friends birthday party once again and we did nothing but stay at home.. she pretty much still sleeps the day away so she would get up and play a few minutes and then go back and fall asleep.. Friday for most of the day she was fever free but about 9pm her fever was back.. While I stayed home with Sweet Pea and Little Man, DH took Princess and Mr Man and one of Princess's friends to mine an DH's home town for a high school basketball game. Princess thought it was really funny to see old pictures of her parents hanging on the school walls.

Saturday February 7, 2008

I had cancelled the family birthday party for the girls once again.. because of sick Sweet Pea.

That morning Mr Man had a basketball game and since DH took him last week while I stayed with the sick kids, I took Mr Man this week and left him home with the sick kids.

It was a good game.. Mr Man's team won 6-2

After the game I was making a stop over my grandma's house when I turned on to her road I hit a water puddle (I had been hitting them all day it was 40 outside yesterday and all the mountain of snow we have had for two months was melting) and I lost all steering in my van..

I was on grandma's road and could drive in a straight line so I made it up to my grandmas house and tried to turn into her driveway but that wasn't happening.. so I just stopped in front of her house and sent Mr Man inside while I figured out who I should call.. 1st thought was to call my DH but then it hit me.. his car is broke down at the moment and he would have no way to get to me.. So I called my dad.. who started to give me all these major things that could be wrong with my van.. then he called me back and said.. hey wait a minute open up the hood, lets see if the belt slipped off... Sure enough the belt slipped off.. So he told me to stay put he was on his way. 2 hours later I had the belt put back on and could drive my van again. So 3 1/2 hours after leaving the house I was back home.. and OH MY GOODNESS did they destroy the place.. it was a mess when I walked in.. So I started to pick up around the house. and then stayed in playing on the computer and reading the rest of the day/night.

DH took Princess and a friend to meet up with some other friends, and He and Mr Man got the oil changed in the van.. but all of them were home by 6pm we ate dinner and that was our exciting Saturday.

Sunday February 8, 2009

I ended up home from church again.. staying with Sweet Pea my girl with Mono, and Mr Man who was having some tummy trouble, and Little Man who I think is pretty much better now.

Princess was asked to play for a 16U fastpitch softball team who pitcher was sick or something so in the afternoon she went and played indoor softball.

In the evening I was still at home with the 3 younger kids, DH had gone to bed since he had to work sunday night and Princess went to church/youth group.

but that was all there was to our Sunday..

See told ya.. not all that exciting of a weekend. Hope you all had a fun weekend.
