Good day to you all. I am behind again! Gosh, I am always behing. I guess I should just stop updating since things are not that exciting. However, it is something that I like to read and I hope is an inspiration to those who are just starting this journey that someday they will be back to normal.
Today we all slept in. I think the business of this season is already catching up with us and it is only just beginning. We ran a few errands today and mostly just hung out at home. At about 8:00 it hit me that I forgot about the community Thanksgiving service. Oops, I was so sad as it is always a great event.

Monday again! Today we went to see A Christmas Carol. It was a little scary. We were the ONLY ones in the theater. I was too cheap to pay for the 3d, so we saw it regular and Taylor stayed under his jacket, so I am glad he didn’t have things flying at him! It was a very cute movie and I liked it and would love to see it in 3d, but it was a bit scary for a kid.
After the movie we headed home and started some nebs on Taylor. He is a might junky and nasty again. UURGH!!! It just never ends. He is on Musinex as well, so hopefully he will feel better soon.

Today was our stay home day. I felt like blah!!! I have a sinus infection and I promise you that if I had found a needle I would have jabbed it in my face to take the pressure away. It hurt so bad! I stayed in the bed or on the couch all day long. The boys were good and played in their rooms and watched TV. Very few fights broke out or I was so doped up on sinus meds that I missed it:) No, really, they were good today!

Today we hung out at home for the most part. We had to run a few errands and the boys wanted some Milo’s for lunch. We came home and made sausage balls and rice krispie treats. It was warm enough to go outside and finally no rain, so off the boys went. I feel better today, but still sick. I caught up on laundry and housework today. The rest of the week will be busy.

We have to much to be thankful for! We have a little miracle living right here in our home. I must admit that when he was diagnosed I was so unsure of what would happen and I was really unsure of rather we would be here with him 7 years later! Praise God that Taylor is well and happy and healthy!!!! We have a nearly 6 yr old healthy Logan and a roof over our heads in this time on hardship in our country. Things are tight for sure, but we are making it and that is what counts!
We spent the morning watching the Macy’s parade and lounging around. We headed over to Guh’s house for lunch. The boys went outside for some football and bike riding. The girls sat around the table talking, gossping and comparing cell phones.
Soon it was time to do it again. We had dinner at gam maw and Paw Paw’s. We played a game of Baldersash and went through the paper and made a game plan for Black Friday!

Jim and I never went to bed. We were at Walmart at midnight and bought the boys big ticket christmas gifts. We then headed towards Toys R Us which was a HUGE mistake. It took 45 minutes just to make the loop of the store and get back out! There is no discount on the planet that would have made me stand in that line to pay!!! The police were arriving as we were leaving, so it was getting nuttso!
We went to IHOP because we had not eaten enough today! We mapped out a plan and then headed to Walmart in Pelham. Lucky us picked the right one. We were able to put all the door buster stuff we wanted in our buggy, but we couldn’t pay. That was fine at least we were not fighting over stuff. We just got all we wanted and then sat at the register until 5. We had a few more small stops to make, but we were home by 6am. We were up for 24 hours straight and were exhausted. We went straight to bed when we got home.
We woke up about 1:00. We called to see if the boys were ready to come home and found out Taylor was sick. UUURRRGGGGHH!!!! I went to pick them up and we went straight to the Dr. only to see that they had closed early, so we went back to Middle Creek and saw the Dr. there. We watched the AL VS. AU game there. How bout them Tigers!!! We may have lost but we scared the heck out of them for 58 minutes!!! WDE!!!!!
Anyway, Taylor has pneumonia! Can you believe that crap? Dang it! He is on another antibiotic and on nebs all day and night!! Poor guy. He doesn’t really feel that bad, so I think we caught it early. Praise God!!! I told you all I would find a way to get another CBC. His counts look like a kid who is sick. His numbers that were low in Oct, have all come back up, so I am happy now!

Today we went to eat at SAG. The boys all headed to our house to put lights on the house. The girls went shopping. The boys went to spend the night with Guh. Jim and just killed time at home. We were going to go to the movies, but we just missed the start and the next show was at 10:20 and that was just too late for us old folks!
