A sickness update.....

Well I posted about 5 days ago about the ongoing sickness that was in the house. I'm happy to report that Nathan went back to school today after missing 7 school days and he is required to bring a medical excuse back to school for having the flu. Nichole and Sam went back last Friday after a day of being lazy and sleeping. Chris (dh) had some stomach issues that went away after about 8 hours or so. (HATE HIM). Don't get me wrong, I don't want him sick or seeing him sick but the man has the immune system of iron and I don't. NOT FAIR!!! And I got some cold from hell to make things interesting. I haven't been this sick in quite a long time and I desperately want to feel better. Dont' get me wrong, I feel better than I did this weekend but it's not fast enough for me.

And to top things off, my dryer broke. My 8 year old dryer broke and some repair dude is coming on Wednesday to tell me if it's repairable or not. Oh goodie, more money out the door. If it's not one thing, it's another.

Not a good week so far...

Hi there,

Well there is this stupid sickness running it's course through my house. First, Nathan complained of a sore throat and generally not feeling well (Kept him home from school on Monday he went to school on Tuesday and has been home yesterday and today as well), Nichole is coming down with something as well and struggled with the idea of staying home from school today (she did after realizing that she would probably come home at some point during the morning school hours), so now she took some Advil and went back to bed. THEN it's Sam's turn. He's sneezing and coughing up a storm and I looked down his throat with this thingie I bought to look in their ears but it works well in this situation. And his throat is red and he's complaining of a sore throat. If this is what swine flu or any other type of flu looks like, I WANT IT OUT OF MY HOUSE NOW!!! Wait, I bet my turn is coming soon. Goodie, can't wait LOL.

Haven't stitched in a couple days due to taking care of said sick kids. Hopefully people will start feeling better this weekend and I will make more progress on my project.

Sorry if this post bored you to death, but needed to post feelings someplace and why not my blog?

This is my progress picture of LHN's Peach Tree Cottage. It's about 2 months worth of stitching, I know, not much but it's something if you ask me. I have so many WIP"S to finish, I should really take a break from this and try to finish one of many WIP's. Nah, I wanna start something new, SOOOOOO I decided to start this:

It's Blackbird Designs Keepsake Box and Pinkeep, Loose Feathers pattern #33. I'm doing the Keepsake box and will frame the stitching instead of making into a box. This is for our bedroom walls. Still not much on the walls even though we've been in the house 6 years. Geeze, I better get going on that. And I got the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue to page through, so I'M SURE there will be something in it for me to work on.

Anything else going on here?? Well, the kids finished 8 days of school (2 4-day weeks) and they are tired in the morning and when they get home. My little one, Sam, is mad that people aren't always available to play after-school. Chris is still working and working 5 days a week instead of the 4 that was in place at the beginning of the summer before he went on furlough. Quiet days for me to catch up on stitching, blogs, emails and of course, the never ending battle with laundry and housework.

I hope you enjoy the pictures of my stitching and I apologize for the one picture that is sideways, I couldn't figure out how to fix that. Something my daughter will have to teach me. Love her. :)

Gotta run and get after school snacks ready for always hungry 12 year old. Have a good weekend and thanks for coming to my blog!!

First day of September

Cannot believe that it's September already. We celebrated my Mother in Law's birthday on the 27th of August, mine on the 29th (not sure how I feel about turning 38 but it came and went without much fanfare which is fine with me) And on Monday my wonderful, dear husband got to go back to work after such a long furlough.

And today is the first day of school for my munchkins (well they are 15, 12 and 9 so I guess they are not munchkins right??LOL) All in all their day went well, no phone calls from any of the schools (which is always a good thing if you ask me) and they came home hungry and a little tired with some homework thrown in for good measure. I'm sure by the end of the week they will get used to getting up early and having to move their tushies to get themselves to school ON TIME!!

Someone on one of my Yahoo lists reminded me that there are 144?? days until Christmas!! How rude! LOL
