Cardinal Glennon--Home away from home

I am sooo tired of being sick. Sooo tired of being tired for that matter. I got hit again and stayed in bed for four days...Can someone say bedsores?? My heart went out for all the nursing homes and hospitals. I sure needed one of their beds. I finally went to the dct and yep...Strep!! I literally was laying down when she examined me. I couldnt even sit up. I was that out of it. Now on antib, which causes you know what...bring on the yogurt!! You fight one thing to gain another. I know have this terrible cough from down under. I get into a coughing spell and others rush to my side. On the flip side, I love the outcome of sickness...losing weight!!!! I am still on a soft food thing. I just cant eat like I usually do. Good thing. Maybe it will become a habit..hmmmm

So glad no one else in the family has gotten it. I dont wish this on my worst enemy. And I have a few! shhh!!

Good friend passed away. Went home to be with the Lord. He served a wonderful life. He was a military man and a loving husband and father. He will me missed by all.

Speaking of loving husbands and father....mine has sure been great while I have been sick. He has taken over and cooked, homework, kids, etc. I am amazed and very thankful. I truely love him and so grateful to have him.

well, off to begin the day. My heart is really heavy for some boys in my class. I am praying God gives me soft voice and tender heart for these young men. Please God send me the right words for them today.

I am going to a 12 hour crop tomorrow. I cant wait. We get to wear out pj's (appropriate ones she says!) I am going to scrap scrap scrap all day and night. We get two meals and snacks. It's a great time!!!

Boys and their bikes..what would they do without 'em!

Dalton had his bike and Keegan had his little tricyle. So Keegan asked for a new bike for his birthday. Grandma and Grandpa Smith bought him one. They took him shopping all over Mt. Vernon and he choose one finally. He was almost toooo small for it, but he worked and worked and he can fly with it now!! I am soo proud of him. They both go on rides daily.

Chickens...chickens..and more chickens!!

We have had these chickens for awhile now and they are definately doing there job. We are getting around 15-20 eggs a day. The boys take care of them and get the money from mommy selling the eggs for $1.00. They take pride in that money too. They are learning sooo much responsiblity taking care of these chickens. We incubate them ourselves and the process is wonderful learning for them.
