A Month of SICK Days

Oh February, this has not, I repeat NOT been a great month. Everyone in my little household has been sick this month. A couple have of us more than once. It actually started the end of January. Michael had the cough and the trip to the ER. Jesse spent the 1st weekend of the month sick and passed it on to Phillip who got down with the flu. Then again it was Jesse with the fever 102 plus. The following weekend Michael had the fever. Enough already, so I took him to the doctor and after having some yucky hard ear wax removed, found out he had infections in both ears. Why not test him for the flu too? Good thing because, guess what?, it was the flu! Darn it! I thought I was going to escape it, but even though I had avoided it all month, it was FINALLY my turn. Miserable. We will ALL be getting flu shots next year.

Now, as I seem to go on and on about our illnesses, I will say there were some good times in February too. There were birthdays--My PawPaw celebrated his 92nd b-day, Phillip added a year and sweet Alyssa is now 9. The "holidays", ya know Ground Hog Day and VALENTINE'S Day. Even made it to the Rodeo in San Antonio to see some Extreme Bull Riding and Jason Aldean!

Here is to a healthy March!

Why I'm Bloggin'............

Ya see, I have been reading the blogs of a few good friends for a month or two and I have TOTALLY enjoyed being "involved" in their daily lives. These are friends that have been friends for many, many, many years and will be friends for many, many, many years to come. We have not stayed as close over the years as I wish we had, but this bloggin' has really opened up a whole new opportunity, it's a way to get reconnected with these wonderful ladies. I feel like I am constantly checking their blogs because I can't wait to see what's been going on in their neck of the woods, or what they have on their minds. And let me tell you, I find myself disappointed when they haven't posted for a few days. These are some funny ladies, y'all and oh, boy I absolutely LOVE to see some of the pictures they post of them and their families!
I also hope I can also use this as a way to get connected, reconnect, and stay connected to some other friends and family that are near and far, but that I don't get a chance to visit with as often as I like. Stay tuned.........

Finally Friday!


It has been a long week. Yes sir, long. That sick bug is going around and it was at my house this past weekend and earlier this week. I had a sick kid and a sick husband. Thank goodness they are both back to their normal feel good selves. Of course nobody likes to be sick. But being sick doesn't stop the everyday stuff, unfortunately. Oh I could complain and go on and on about the million things that I had to do or didn't get to do this week, but I won't. Instead, I will thank God that we are well now and the weather is nice. The weekend is here--time to slow down and relax. That's EXACTLY what I plan to do!
