It was a cold and rainy day and night. Started my day by taking the kids to school minus Mr Man who was home still trying to get over a stomach virus which had him missing school and spending alot of time in the restroom for 3 days. Mr Man's 4th grade class was singing at the high school football game Friday night but Mr Man did not make that either. My Friday was spent at home staying warm, doing laundry, and getting ready for a weekend softball tournament. We got a call to let us know that due to the rain the softball tournament was cancelled for Saturday and just going to be a one day tournament on Sunday, this freed up our Saturday.

Woke up bright and early and got Mr Man who was doing much better, dressed and out the door and into my dad's truck which was pulling the boat. That was about the last I saw of Mr Man this weekend.. He was off with the guys fishing.
Princess had made plans for herself for the day, lunch at McDonald's with some friends, then later meeting another group of friends for pizza and a homecoming parade(not our school the friends school) then that group of friends football game. That is how she spent her Saturday. So the two older kids had plans for the day. The rest of us picked up some of the clutter called my house in the morning and then after lunch, we loaded up the van and headed to the lake for the Lighthouse fall festival. The kids had a great time at the lighthouse. Here is a slide show of the time spent there.
After we left the lighthouse we stopped by a pumpkin patch where they were letting you pick a pumpkin for a dollar. We had already bought pumpkins off a back of a tractor in our town for each of the kids for $2 but this looked like fun so we let Little Man and Sweet Pea pick some pumpkins, I now have 9 pumpkins in my yard decorating it for fall. Here are a few pictures from the pumpkin patch.
When we got back home. I had just enough time to pack up the 3 younger kids cloths and have them ready for when my dad and Mr Man got back from the lake. The kids went and spent the night with grandma and went to church with them on Sunday morning.
While I was getting Mr Man, Sweet Pea and Little Man off with my dad, DH had dropped off Princess at the pizza place to meet her friends and start her evening. When he was back and I was ready the two of us went and got groceries(this was pushing 8pm) After groceries shopping, and getting the food put away, I got dinner into the oven and it was time to go pick Princess up from the football game.. When I got home from that we pulled dinner out of the oven and sat down to eat at 10 O'clock at night. :-)
Then it was off to bed.

DH tossed and turned and coughed all night.. I guess I asked him if he was ok one to many times though the night.. I didn't know i was doing it that often because I would be sleeping then wake up hearing him coughing.. The last time I woke up I asked him if he was ok, he said "yea, I'm fine, just can't sleep and I'm coughing, why am I waking you up" I think I said no but I was already asleep.. he must have felt bad because next thing you know I roll over and he wasn't in bed, he was out on the couch still coughing I could hear. Anyways the alarm clock went off at 5:something AM for us to be on the road around 5:45/6am DH had only got about an hour sleep all night long and he was driving.. He drove about a 1/2 hour when I told him to pull over and I would drive, I had planned to sleep the way to the ball tournament but I was too worried he was not awake enough to drive so I took over driving and he fell asleep or at least rested his eyes till we hit the ball park at 7:15am
DH is coaching Princess's team this year and the two of them needed to be there at 7:30am but the 1st game wasn't till 8:30am So I stayed in the van where it was warm(it was only abut 33 outside at 8:30am) and I fell asleep till 8:15am then got up brushed my hair did my makeup and bundled up in blankets to watch the 1st game. To make this story short we sat outside in 30 and low 40 degree weather and it was windy brrrrrrrrrrrrr... for 8 hours and then it was over and we were on our way home
I was so tired I couldn't keep my eyes open.. so I slept an hour.
After getting home I got dressed and it was off to church and awana's where my parents meet me to give me my kids and all there stuff.
After Awana's and PM church we came home I made dinner and we were eating super around 8pm.. then I got the kids in bed and watched desperate housewife's and brothers and sisters.. and then I passed out for the night.. ONLY I fell asleep with the lights and tv on, and forgot to take my blood pressure meds. OOPS.
That was my weekend.
As for other happenings going on.. I am going to be working for the next 3 weeks. I was assinged a sub job at one of the elementary schools starting tomorrow and ending November 3. that should keep be really busy with no time to blog.. or maybe it will force me to be more organized and I'll find time to blog that way, who knows.
Also please keep the Shingleton family a family from my church in your prayers. Mr Shingleton went in last Thursday for surgery, and that went well and he was doing great Friday, Saturday and Sunday, then last Monday he had a seizure and ended up in a common, which killed the top part of his brain leaving him brain dead, they have taken him off all the breathing and feeding tubes so now it is just a matter of time. Please keep his family in your prayers.
