Finally. . . It's all coming together!

Well I have wanted a patio set for my back patio for a couple of years and yesterday we got this set. I really like it (if only this was our backyard!!!) We got it at K-Mart and all the chairs are the kind you can rock in a little. I don't know if we will ever use the fire pit part of it, but it is a nice sized table and instead of getting a loveseat and two chairs we got four chairs. I think this will be really comfortable on our back patio. We put it together last night (after fishing at our little lake!) I think we might get a gazebo to cover our patio table. We have an umbrella, but it really doesn't do much for the afternoon sun.
I think I will brew a pot of decaf and take my Sunday paper outside and sit on my new patio furniture and relax!!!
Happy Sunday,
Love ya,

Gallbladder, Gallstones oh my!!!

So I discovered that I needed my gallbladder out last week as I had a large stone. I went in on Friday morning and had it removed. My recovery was quite remarkable and I was back at work Monday morning! I had asked at the hospital if I could get my gallstone so here it is in all it's glory! Shannon took the picture and added the text. What it should really say is the average size of a gallbladder is 2.5 cm, this is a picture of NOT my gallbladder, but the stone thatg was INSIDE of it! I am pretty grateful I was not in pain!!!

Longer Days are COOL!!!

With daylight savings time and the days being longer the boys have been spending some time outside after dinner. Tonight I look over and Skyler is holding on to the side of the swing rope and then turned himself upside down and his feet are touching the top of the swing set.
We are so lucky the boys play so well together. The look of pure joy on David's face as Skyler spins him around is priceless. It almost makes up for all the times Skyler yells at him!!!

Some days are better than others!

Some days I just can't help it. I just feel sorry for myself. I know that I shouldn't. I know I have a great life... I have a great husband, great kids, a great job. I have a wonderful family, I am healthy. I totally have so much to be grateful for, I know I do. . .
it's just some days I feel like I am the only person that EVER does anything around this house (other than my housekeeper Laurie who does way more than ANYONE ELSE!!!), some days my kids don't listen to a word I have to say, some days my husband is the most self absorbed self centered human being on the planet, some days. . .

Hopefully tomorrow will be one of those day!

I think I will just take my sorry, ungrateful ass to bed and try again tomorrow!!!

Happy Wednesday,
Love ya,

Sickies at my house

Wow, what a week! Last weekend Skyler was off and on not feeling well and slept a lot. I thought he was better. . . Wednesday I got a call from his school telling me that he was sitting with his head on the table and the teacher asked him if he wanted to lay down and he did. She wanted to let me know that he did not have to go home (no fever) but did I want to come and get him. I did, thank God for Sharon. She was off work and came to my work and picked him up. He stayed home with Sara the next day and seemed fine by Friday so off to school he went. Friday I got a call around noon saying that David had a fever of 102 and would have to go home. I went and picked him up and we went home for the day. Yesterday he seemed fine, so I took them both to A Good Time Out, went to Target, got a pedicure and did a little grocery shopping. Our friends Dave and Beverly came over last night for a barbecue. I marinated some chicken (it turned out so good) and we grilled some veggies and had brown rice. Beverly brought a salad and we all had a nice healthy meal. David fell asleep in the toy room around 6pm and around 8 or so seemed go have a fever again! He woke up acting just fine again this morning! I don't know what it is that is going around but it has stopped at our house.

Wow, Daylight Savings Time already! I really like the time change. Tomorrow morning will be a challenge, but I love leaving work and having it be light for so late into the night!

Well, I am thinking I will get up and do the breakfast dishes (pancakes this morning). I am missing my coffee, gave it caffeine up for Lent. Maybe I will grind up some decaf beans and make a pot! I am going to (once again) try to go through and clean some things out. Getting rid off all the excess (I am so very bad at this!!!)

I will let you know how I did on my clean out efforts!

Happy Sunday,

Love Ya,

My Guys!

We went camping this weekend at Buena Vista which is about 30 minutes from our house. It is really nice there. They have lots of mature trees, two lakes, and a great playground which our campsite was directly in front of!!!
Well I just tried loading some pictures (of My Guys!!!) for the last 15 minutes, and for some reason it isn't working. Never mind. Obsessive with every bone in my body I tried one more time and it worked. The first picture is a picture of the guys watching a movie. What you can't see in that picture is the lake outside of the picture window behind the guys! The second one is the story of Skyler's life (and probably mine too, if the truth be known!) Shannon and Skyler put together this puzzle. I even got in on the action!
Well, I have to get ready to go to work. I have some new pictures of Aidan I will try and post tonight.
Happy Monday,
