Today is my friday...

Well today I am only work three days. Eric and I are taking Thrus & Fri off to spend some time as a family. Tomorrow, we are going to Breakers Water Park with Keith, Bonnie and their kids. It is going to be so fun watching the kids play in the water. Friday we are not sure what we are going to do, maybe the zoo? We'll see...whatever it is it will be fun because we are all together.

Worried about....

...my sister in law who is in the hospital for lower right abdominal pain. They don't know what is wrong and are having a hard time finding out. I hope she feels better soon.

...all the things that need to be done around the house before we can sell it.

...not having enough energy to get those things done.

...feeling bigger and tired with this pregnancy.

...what the next year holds in store for my little family.

...getting Brianne to sleep through the night in her own bed.

...being overwhelmed and giving up on everything.

...having a feeling of blah about life sometimes.

It;'s baaa-aack...

Brianne's infamous bout with vomit is back. For those of you who don't know this is something that happens with Brianne about every 6 months, it is like clockwork. It all starts one night, in the middle of the night, when she decides to throw up about 3-4 times. Then over the next 2 weeks she throws up randomly. It is at different times of the day, different amounts each day without a warning of the impending doom. Of course this pleasantness never happens on the tile or in an area that is easy to clean up. This is a time when we do a lot of laundry.

Another First...

Dun, dun, da, dun....Well it has finally happened. We had to go to the Emergency Room with Brianne. Fortunately, it turned out to be nothing serious. Saturday night Brianne went to bed and about 11pm we heard a thump, whaaaaaaa. When I went into Bri's room she was holding a pink bucket. I took the bucket away and she began holding her arm. I felt around and had her move it for me and all seemed in order and she went back to sleep. At about 1pm she woke up again and started and continued to cry. She wouldn't take any medicine so we decided we should go to the ER to make sure there were not breaks or fractures. They took x-rays and said there were none. The doc said that it was probably something called "nurses elbow" which is basically this: when a child falls they tend to grab on to things close to them and it temporarily pulls their elbow joint out of socket and it pops immediately back. This causes a strain on the muscles and leaves them sore. He said it she was not better by end of the day Sunday to go to her regular doc and have a 2nd set of x-rays done.

I am happy to report Bri is doing just fine!

Thank you...

With 4th of July coming up it always makes me think about my life and what others, whom I have never met, give up so that me and my loved ones can live in this wonderful county that many die trying to enter. We live in the greatest nation in the world, and if you don't agree...than what are you doing here? People risk their lives just to get a piece of our life.

I have always been that person that cries every time I hear the national anthem or see soldiers/veterans saluting the flag. Soldiers (present and retired) are the greatest human beings in the world and I love each and every one of them. Now of course there anywhere you go there is always going to be those few that take things to extremely and make the rest look bad. Just remember if it wasn't for all those brave men and women that VOLUNTEER to protect you and your family that you owe everything to. Do not speak ill of them or say they are bad people. Some of the things that are required of them is not nice, but it is what is necessary to keep you in your comfortable lifestyle. When you see a soldier, current or retired, tell them thank you and that what they do means a lot to you.

So on this national holiday remember that you live in the greatest nation in the world. Thank those that should be and don't complain about it unless you are willing to get off you butt and change it!
