A gross story...

I have the funniest yet gross story to share today. I was not feeling well again yesterday but I managed to get up to take Jennah to the bus stop. Before we left the house, I had her go into my bathroom to brush her hair. I was standing there watching her when suddenly, I felt the need to cover my mouth and fan myself. She looked at me and said "Mom, why are you just standing there with your hand over your mouth?" I told her I felt like I was going to throw up. She just looked at me again and said "Oh." It was at that point that I turned to the "porcelain bus" and started puking. At that point, Jennah looked at me again and said "That's it, I'm outta here!" and she walked off. No sympathy from that kid whatsoever! I had to laugh though because of the way she made her last comment. She's soooo funny.

Today went by slow for me. I've been trying to avoid the kids so as not to give them what I have but it's very hard to do with Kaylee running around. She's too cute. She'll come into my room and say "you ok mommy?" It's real cute and I just want to give her big hugs for being so caring. I'm feeling a little bit better but not 100% yet.
I had to take Jennah to soccer practice tonight. It was pretty windy and a bit chilly out (ok, so 65 is chilly for me now!) and then it sprinkled for about 3 minutes so I'm sure that'll help me get well sooner - NOT! Anyway, we all just downed some hot chili, that's enough to make anyone feel better right?

Sick again

Well, here I sit AGAIN with my bottles of Theraflu, Nyquil and Zycam. Yep, I'm sick for the second time in three weeks. My whole body aches and I feel as if my head is about to blow off my neck! I'm sure it's from not sleeping well and then sitting in the waiting rooms at the therapy centers with Kaylee. Just the other day I was "attacked" by a snot nosed kid! Yuk! I've been avoiding the girls as I don't want them to catch what ever it is that I have. Mike is doing a great job handling the "mom chores". Anyway, it's off to bed I go again. Night Night!

The "kissmess tree" as Kaylee calls it...

The Christmas tree is decorated as of tonight! Of course, there's always one little thing that, shall we say, goes "wrong"! Year after year, we put ourselves through misery with our little tree topper "Tinkerbell." I love her and so do the kids. She's sparkles and has fiber optic wings that change color. Her only problem is the clip that holds her to the tree. They aren't flexible and are in a weird position on her back. This year, all went well for some reason but she was a little crooked. So, being the decorator of the family, I couldn't have that! Ok, I'll even call it a bit of OCD! I tried to straighten her by standing on our little 4ft ladder. Oh, that brings me to another point. On said four foot ladder, the bright yellow warning sign on the third rung warns you "Do not stand on or above this level." Therefore, my so called 4 foot ladder is really only about 2 1/4 foot. With that said, here's the issue: I'm 5'5", add 2'3" for the so called four foot
ladder and presto, one can do the math and figure it does not equal up to the 9 foot tree top! Yes, I tried to make it work but all I did was pull Tinkerbell off. OOPS! Ok, so it wasn't the word oops that came out of my mouth, it was more like she-ite, you get it. I told Mike what I did... his response "Argghh, that be-arch! (you get that word too I know) He hates her but I insist she tops our tree. So, the ladder still sits in my living room until Mike can get up there and "re-attach her! Ahhhhh, the joys of Christmas. All in all, it looks good and the kids are happy. Kaylee calls it the Kissmess tree. Cute. Jennah did most of the decorating as I was not feeling well. Of course after she went to bed, I did a little rearranging or ornaments to avoid the over clumping of reds, greens, and the like!

Just put up the Christmas lights outside... I'm sweating!
Oh that's right, it's 74 degrees out today! ;)
I'll take a pic when it's dark (and cooler) and post them later tonight.
Here's the updated outdoor picture...I know, it's not quite Disney World lights but we're reluctant to add more as our lawn care man runs over anything in his path which I'm guessing would include extension cords! Oh well!

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas...

We put up out tree tonight but did not have time to decorate it! We had a busy day today. Jennah and I returned home from Disney at about 11:00 am. Then it was off to her cousin's birthday party and on to Sam's Club to look at televisions - a long story for a later post! Anyway, I told the girls we would decorate it tomorrow after Jennah gets home form school. Kaylee was pretty excited just that it was up and lit. She had daddy and I lay on the floor with her to "see the stars".
