1394 miles... That is the total number of miles mapquest said it was for us to get to the beach house and to see our friends... 22 hours and some odd number of minutes... I guess mapquest didn't take in the wrong turn they told us to take... It said merge left, and when we finally found the road we needed an hour later, it was actually to the right we should have gone... Then missing the last ferry to the island (by 15 minutes) and having to go up and around the bay cost us another hour... But 26 hours and some odd minutes later we were at the beach house, seeing our friends!

Myra had fun playing with her friend the other day. But it was funny to listen to her tell her friend to make her food! :)

What would you do?

Catalina got stitches last week on her knee. It seems like it has healed all fine and good. In fact she can get her stitches out now. And needs to before we head out for spring break. So here's my question for you... Do I take an hour in my crazy day tomorrow to take her to the doctors or hospital to get the stitches out, or do I do it myself?

I think Myra thinks the birds are board ;)

You know you are tired when...

You know you are tired when... Fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow... Fight sleep anytime you sit too long on a soft seat... Forget important meetings... Really important BIG meetings... That you are in charge of... And still have to plan... I knew I was forgetting something...

If a little girls normally goes to sleep by 8 or 8:30 when she doesn't take a nap. Why will she be up to 11 or 12 if she does take a nap? It's not like she slept for 4 or 5 hours...

My body always seems to crash at least once a day... And it always seems like it's favorite time to crash is when it's time to fix dinner. Having a menu seems to help me push past the desire to just go lay down and take a nap. But even with a menu, some days are just too hard to be motivate to cook dinner. Do we really need dinner?

Day Two

The crazy week is continuing. I started the day after a short night of sleep. I sure love my little guy, but I'd be happy to sleep more than the 3 and a half hour I got last night. I had to make several phone calls today, including ordering new contacts AGAIN because they ordered my OLD prescription. I sent several emails for pool related business (along with a couple phone calls). And I did several hours of school work (but I am almost done for the week). I did a crockpot dinner this morning, knowing that my Tuesday afternoons are busy. With all the crazy, I felt like it was a good productive day. I even got the girls down too the shower early, with hope that it would be an early bed time for kiddos... And wouldn't you know it... The day had to throw a twist in... I was just getting ready to feed a newly bathed baby when a dripping wet 5 year old came screaming up the stairs... With blood running down her leg... It would seem that she had a fight with the door/floor and that she had lost. And the nice little cut on her knee was just a little too big and a little too deep for a band-aid... Ending the day in the ER just helps to make this week that much more crazy ;)

Sometimes at the end of a long day it is nice to just sit and hold my baby. Today was the first day of this crazy busy week. And next week doesn't look to be any less crazy! I think I might need a vacation by the end next week ;) Maybe somewhere on a beach... Where it's warm... I can't wait for this week and next to be done!

Munchies and Crunchies

Gurgie from the Black Caldron would say "Munchies and Crunchies". That it what I am feeling/thinking this evening. As I am trying to not snack on things, I just keep thinking Munchies and crunchies, I want some Munchies and crunchies. Maybe I should just go to bed ;)

Ben's Art Show

Some of the students from Ridgeview Elementary School were able to have their art displayed in an art show at a local art gallery. Ben was one of the lucky few to do this. Josh and I took Ben (and Spencer) to go see his art.

Baby For Sale

I guess we need to work on the value of money with Catalina.... And we also need to go over the fact that we don't sell our siblings... So if you are in the market for a baby, hurry and talk to Catalina before we do. Apparently she will sell you Spencer for $100.00. :)

Too Smart

I left my IPad on the desk when I went to go lay Spencer down... When I came back I found Myra watching Dora on my IPad. She figured out how to go from the window I was in to Netflix and then start Dora... The only thing she couldnt figure out was how to turn the sound up :)

Spencer will be 14 weeks old tomorrow! How time has flown. The day after he was born I got a couple vaccines. The one I got in my right arm did not go well. The nurse had a hard time getting it to inject into my arm. She really had to push on the syringe to get it to go in… And it hurt! And it still hurts!!! 14 weeks later my arm still hurts. The paperwork I got on the shot said sometimes a person will have a bad reaction to the shot that will cause pain at the site that can last up to 6 months! I’m only a little over 3 months from the shot… I sure hope it doesn’t last 6 months! Here are some cute pictures of my cute baby :)

Myra's prayer

We say prayers at night as a family. We each take a turn, and after you have prayed, you pick the next person. Myra's prayers are often the same night after night. Her prayer tonight was short and sweet... Bless the food. Amen. Please go to Casey's house. Amen.

I love my baby. I love cuddling with him. But sometimes I worry about him... He started coughing against yesterday :( Now I am worrying that he will end up with RSV again. I also worry about his skin... I'm pretty sure he has eczema. But he also has a weird rash going on... Sometimes... It just shows up at different times. His skin will be pretty and white one minute, and then red and splotchy the next. And there doesn't seem to be any one thing that triggers it... Sometimes it shows up when he is eating... Sometimes it shows up when he is sleeping... Sometimes it shows up when he is crying... But it doesn't always show up with any of these things.

Ben's art work

Ben had a piece of his art work from school picked to go in an art exhibit. The "Grand Opening" for the show for last Friday. And both Josh and I forgot, until it was too late. We decided that we would take Ben this evening to the art exhibit I stead. It was neat to see Ben's art work up on display! Good job Ben!
