A Good Day

I know it's been a while since I posted but I'm here now.

Today is a very good day.  I've been dealing with a staph infection all weekend and it finally "opened" and has started draining all the yucky stuff out.  It's the grossest thing if you've never dealt with one.  The pressure was so bad that I had a very difficult time sleeping or even moving around because I couldn't apply pressure.  Now, other than the ooziness, I'm pretty much back to normal.

We had a nice weekend at mom's house.  Saturday was the egg hunt and Dutch Oven dinner.  Yummm it was so good.  The kids enjoyed the hunt though I couldn't get any good pictures of Jordan, just too interested in getting the candy.  Here are a few pictures of the kids:

Here's a picture of Melody after I gave her a pretty good bump on the noggin.  I was picking her up to put her to bed, and she kept going and hit her head on the corner of the wall.  It swelled really quick.  Needless to say I had a bad night.

Anyway, just wanted to post a few pictures from this weekend.

Early Easter Wishes

Going to post an early Happy Easter.  We're heading to mom's house this weekend for a family get together so the kids can have an egg hunt and eat Dutch Oven.  Yumm...  I'm not sure when I'll be back on here to post so I pray you all have a very Happy Easter and after the fun stuff, Remember why we celebrate in the first place.  I'm so greatful that Christ died on the cross and ressurected 3 days later so that we might live with him.

3. I met Loney at an online dating site.
4. I can't to have my sheets bunched up when I go to bed.  Drives me nuts.

Quick one

I'm really tired tonight, so just a quick post.  I created another layout for the Faith Sister's CT.  This picture was taken of my great-grandma with Jordan when he was 2 1/2 months old.  I love this picture, and I was so glad she was able to meet him.

So I finally got around to creating a layout for the Faith Sisters CT.  I've been wanting to scrap this picture of Jordan, because it's just soo cute.  Love it!!

Kind of a ho hum day.  Melody is still trying to get over the crud.  Loney has now developed to crud.  I hope I don't get the crud, and thankfully Jordan is over the crud.  I'm looking forward to spring coming, but wish it would be a cooler spring.  

Anyway.  Just thought I'd post real quick before heading to bed.

Spring Forward

Ok, I really hate the start of daylight savings time.  I love my sleep, and anything that takes it away from me...even just an my enemy.  That being said, it's going to easily take me all week to get used to the time change.  But since there's nothing that can be done about it, except move to Arizona, I'll live.

I was hoping to get some scrapping done today, but instead I was trying to keep the kids out of trouble.  Jordan ruined a game chair he received for Christmas by standing/sliding/slamming on it every which way until the seams popped.  He then proceeded to scatter the inside padding all around the living room.  I was not a happy camper.  He's also terrible about constantly repeating what he wants even if I tell him no the first time.  I get so frustrated with him sometimes.  

Melody got the cough/runny nose from Jordan and has been miserable herself.  Plus she's one of the biggest mess makers next to Jordan.  

I love both my kids, and most of the time they are great, but today was a very stressful day for Loney and I so we had a hard time dealing with their whininess and messes.  Well, I'm going to bed early, so hopefully tomorrow is a better day.

New Stuff

So there's some new stuff over at the Faith Sister's shop.  Some of this stuff is even FREE!!

I'm sitting here before heading to bed, and realize my legs are killing me tonight.  It's been a while since my legs hurt this bad.  Hopefully I'll be able to sleep tonight ok.

Jordan is finally getting better.  Just can't get rid of this stupid crud that has been going around all winter.  I hope the rest of us don't get it again.  He stayed home from school today, but I'm sending him tomorrow.

My phone is finally working again.  We has a temporary line run about 7 months ago, and come to find out, some rabbits ate that line.  Could explain why the phone hasn't worked I guess.  Hopefully we'll get a permanent line run so we don't have to go through this headache again.

I did my first layout as a Creative Team member for Gretchen Tripp Designs.  It's such an awesome feeling being apart of this great team, for this amazing digital designer.  I'm having so much fun seeing how much I can learn and grow in the digital world.  I'm not looking back!

Journaling reads:
Your sweet smile melts my heart, but your eyes tell me just how you are feeling. If you're sick, I can tell, if you're sad, I can tell. Even if you're just tired, your eyes give it away. But your "Smiley Eyes" are my favorite of all.
