November 22, 2009 Day +2426 Day +2124 off therapy (through 11/28)

Today we slept in. Well, I say slept in, I think we were all up by 8:00, but no one woke us up. We pretty much lounged around and did nothing. I did some cleaning and we put up the trees in the boys rooms. We had to run to Lowe’s to return something and we got pizza for lunch. It is funny how that one $5 pizza used to feed us all with a few leftover slices, but not anymore. It takes 2 now for piglet Taylor! He eats like a horse and never gains weight. Heifer!

This afternoon I got the house cleaned. I have been busy. I wanted it all to be done, so that this week can truly be an off week with nothing to do! Yee hoo, I did it!!!

It is wet and dreary outside and the boys are not real pleased to be in the house. They are watching The Goonies and that is keeping them content for now. We hope to go see A Christmas Carol this week and maybe go to the Bass Pro shop for a picture with Santa.

Happy Monday. We slept late or I did. I got up about 8:30 and both boys were up. I can’t believe Taylor was up! We hung around the house until 1:00 and then we headed out and about. We went to see A Christmas Carol. I was too cheap to spring for $2 extra dollars per ticket, so we did not see it in 3d. Thank goodness! Taylor was under his jacket most of the time. It was a little scary at times. Logan didn’t act to scared of it, but I don’t think he was overly impressed either! I thought it was great and would to have loved to have seen it in 3D, but they didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought.

I played bunko tonight and the boys met up with the Miller’s to eat. I got home very late, but they were all still up watching tv. I love off weeks!!!

Last night I began to not feel so great. I didn’t feel awful, but not good. Well, the awful hit today. UUGH, I have been in the bed all day. I felt bad for the boys, they wanted to go outside, but the only meds we had in the house knocked me flat out! The were soooooo good though, they cleaned their rooms, watched tv and played in the playroom. No complaints!

Jim brought home some Chick fil a and then we played Bang Hero. Fun! The boys are now in love with American Pie, all 13 minutes of it! We did not leave the house. Poor kids never even brushed their teeth! UUGH, I know, but I really felt that bad!

I got a call today to ride the bus Monday when we go back to school. It will be a Hueytown bus. Gosh I have missed that crew! Sweet babies! I can’t wait to see them!

I did not sleep good last night. I guess because I slept all day. I got up at 2:30 and took more meds. Taylor was still wide awake watching TV. He is my child, that is how I spent any night that was not a school night! I woke up at 6:15 and my head was pounding, but I was too lazy to get up and get more meds. Well, Jim woke me up at 7:15 wanting to know where the electric knife was. Umm, right where we put last Thanksgiving! UURGH! So, I got him to bring me the LAST sudafed I had and I dropped that dang thing. I looked EVERYWHERE and never did find it. I wanted to cry! I went back to sleep until nearly 10:00. I feel better. I am still stopped up, but I am not hurting like I was yesterday. We had to wake Taylor up at 11:30, so we could go eat and get me some more meds. I think he would have slept all day if I had let him and I would have had I not been starving and wanting meds.

We went to Milo’s. Yummy!! We went to Walmart and got meds and the stuff for rice krispy treats and sausage balls. We had to get some paint. We bought those plastic ornaments that you paint last yr. after Christmas and the paint is dried up.

It is now 2:20 and the boys are outside playing. It is a beautiful day outside and they are having a ball! I feel better, not great, but better. I hope that these meds kick in and I feel much better tomorrow!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! I am thankful today for God’s miracles in this family. Taylor has beaten all the odds and I know that is only by God’s grace. I am thankful for good health, good grades, good ballplayers, normal little boy troubles. I am thankful for a family, friends, hospital etc that stood by us and helped us get here! Praise God!!!!
