sick, sick, sick

Yuck we are all sick! I have been sick with a stomach bug since Tuesday, Wade has some kind of junk, Ainsley was sent home from school today with a fever, and Renah has some nose issues. I just want to be over this! I made it to one class today, but that is when Ainsley's school called. So we came home and went to bed! We have layed around all afternoon. So excuse me while I whine but, " WE DON"T FEEL WELL! WAH!!!!" I hope you have a good weekend!

Waiting for spring...

I found this on facebook from a friend of mine and it seemed to be what I needed. I am so tired of winter physically and emotionally. I am more than ready for spring...
"Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life." - Immanuel Kant

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall.

When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted. The second son said no it was covered with green buds and full of promise. The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen. The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment.

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the tree's life.

He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season, and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.

If you give up when it's winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall.


Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest.

Don't judge life by one difficult season.

Happy Valentine's Day

Wade and I went out last night. We went to dinner and to Walmart to get the girls some Valentine's things. We were walking through the store at about 9:30 and Wade said, " I know it's early but I'm so tired! Want to go home?" I was ready for bed about the time we left the house so I was ready to go! We got the girls a few things that we gave them this morning and Wade is at church right now helping with the last minute details of the new building that we have our fist service in tomorrow! The girls have been so cute today telling me "Happy Bawemtimes Day!"
I am trying to study my German but keep getting distracted and I am so tired I might just have to rest my eyes a bit! Have a good Bawemtimes Day!

The call no parent wants...

I went to my ceramics class early yesterday to work on some things I missed last week since I was sick. Class had not even started yet when my phone rang. It was Ainsley's school, she had fallen off the monkey bars and her head was bleeding. As we were on the phone, they decided to call an ambulance. My heart dropped. I called Wade at his meeting and he was picking me up in no time though I was already walking. The secretary rode with her to the hospital b/c traffic was so bad we couldn't get there fast enough. I nearly took out a few hospital employees b/c they said have a seat and when she gets checked out we will come get you. I walked out or as my husband said i tried to superwoman my way through the door b/c they wouldn't open and went to the ambulance entrance and waited there. She was terrified by all the things they had on her. She had 6 stitches and can't go back to school actually until Tuesday b/c they have Thurs - Mon off. she seems fine today but she gave mommy a scare!

So tired - hard to type

I haven't been around much lately b/c I have been in bed whenever i get a chance. SOOOO tired! Nausea has also set in but I'm ok with that. It's the extreme exhaustion that keeps me from here and cleaning. I am selling Pampered Chef now so if you want a party - even a catalog party - let me know and hopefully I won't fall asleep during the party! Have a good day! I want to sleep!

This week

Well, I would love to post a picture of the ultrasound we had yesterday, but I cannot find the charger for my camera. We were able to see the heartbeat and that did my heart good. I am taking a baby aspirin a day as a precaution. Even though nothing came up in the reports from my son or myself the doctor feels it is a good idea. I have strep and bronchitis right now so I am on lots of antibiotics. I took a really long nap this afternoon and that was nice! I don't have a class tomorrow so i have to clean my nasty house! I hope you are having a good week!
