Doctor Visit

Ok...just got back from taking B to the Dr. For the past 3 days she's been green snotty with a wet cough. If you are a mom you know what I mean. Needless to say I am very tired. So anyway on the way to the doctor I brought my 4 y/o niece whom I keep in the mornings to my moms for the day. She is too funny. She grabbed a piece of candy out of the candy jar & asked if she could eat it. Of course it was 9:30am so my mom said no. Well she used her most famous reasoning..."My mommy lets me". Right. So after I left my mom called & said K asked for something & when my mom said no she said "Well Aunt Angel lets me." I guess since she knew the mom excuse didn't work this one might. I love this age.
Then we get to the Dr. & of course its just like I thought. Sinus infection & need amoxicillian. I don't see why they just can't take my word on it. But another thing happened. The Dr. said B had a wall of wax that needed to be punctured. The nurse & I held her down & the Dr. took out this huge wax ball. It was gross. I can't even imagine having that in my ear. So now we are on our way to recovery. Yea!
I am about to lave to p/u my husband from the airport. Tomorrow is Good Friday so yall have a very Happy Easter.

My other half

Well my husband comes home tomorrow evening. Its odd. I look forward to him coming home & being home for the first 3 weeks. Then that last week I am ready for him to leave. You see when he's home he's home. He has no friends here & he's always under foot, making messes & generally just getting in my way. Between him & the baby I don't know which is worse. Also next week is a school holiday so the 10 year old will be home too. I might actually go crazy.
So would you like your husband to work offshore? If so how long could you stand for him to be gone?

What am I truely grateful for? There are so many things. I guess the most important thing I'm grateful for is my family.
My family includes my immediate family of a husband & 2 children then it extends out to a whole slew of parents, sibilings, aunts, uncles, cousins & then come the greats (great aunts etc.) I counted up the other day and close family that lives w/in a 45 min drive there are 73 relatives with 3 more on the way. I love the fact that my children grow up with not only cousins but also a wealth of older relatives who have lived through so much. My oldest goes over to her great grandma's every other week. My daughter is 10 & my grandma will be 82 this year. My grandma lived through the depression, saw the car come about and indoor plumbing. How many other kids can listen to stories like these.
So anyway I am very greatful for having such a big family where everyone is in everyone's business & I still love them.
What are you grateful for????

Goals for 2009

Well its Sunday evening & I really don't feel like doing anything at all. I am actually sitting on the couch watching Celebrity Apprentice feeling so lazy. But I digress.

Goals..I feel I need to achieve some purpose regarding this blog. So I have been thinking about what goals I want to accomplish before 2009 is over. Here is what I've come up with.

  1. Finances- I want to be debt free but that is not going to be accomplished this year unless we give up food & shelter. We've made some mistakes & we are paying for them. Everyday I think to myself oh lets just file for bankruptcy but no we are going to get out of this one dollar at a time. I've started using coupons again. I got out of the habit but need to jump back in.

  2. Organizing- I will put together a household notebook. All the really organized people I've run across have one of some type. I have been going through all the sites seeing what everyone has then will put together my own that fits my needs.

  3. Activity level/Weight- Ok I have a weight problem I know this. I also love to veg in front of the tv which is not good. I've always had this problem but its gotten worse. Also I live in Louisiana & I LOVE food. Not just sweets but all the bad for you foods. So I know I need to turn off the tv & get out more. Now that its warm I've been taking B to the park more often & I will get back to walking more.

That is all for now. I feel its enough. If you pile to many on your plate you are setting yourself up for failure I believe.

Well let me know what you think
