Please enjoy the music while your party is reached...

There's no music, just a lack of "party" aka- Me- to be reached.

What if that silly cell phone music just played forever?

Flack Gobbler Palin

A blog I read, sent me to This, and I found out that if I were Sarah Palin's daughter, Flack would be my name!

Adam would be Ammo Canal Palin.
Brianna would be Crop Shooner Palin.
Grant would be Tape Boise Palin.

I thought it was pretty funny.
What is your "Palin Name"?

Things families shouldn't share

But don't have a choice.... GERMS!

Brianna was sick...
Then I was sick...
Now Grant is sick...

But he is so cute with his hoarse little voice. He still doesn't stop talking, he just sounds cuter somehow.

Heaven forbid Adam get sick! He's the biggest baby of us all!

Can you hear my heart cracking?

My baby, Brianna, is sick. :-(

I received a call from the day care today that she was complaining of a stomach ache and was teary eyed. When I picked her up, she still said she had a stomach ache and was just listless. No fever, but no appetite or energy either.

By dinner time, puke city. Now she is sleeping on a blanket, piled on a couple towels, on her bed which is now cleared of all the usual stuffed paraphernalia that normally graces every free space. We are hoping for a good night but planning for the worst.

It's times like these that my heart just breaks a little. I can't to anything to help her, she doesn't understand why. Baby- I love you and hope you wake up feeling better! Love, Hugs, and Prayers are all I can offer right now. Someday you'll be a mommy Bri- then you'll understand.

Today, Adam and I were speculating on what Grant would be when he grew up, so I asked him...

ME: "Grant, what do you want to be when you grow up?'
GRANT: "Tall enough to reach the Cocoa Krispies!"

What to say?

Not much...

Halloween went well, spread over virtually the whole week so, we have candy EVERYWHERE!

Kids are good. They play nice, they fight, they gang up on us, they love us dearly.

House is good. Went to HOBO today. Bought a decent rug so no one is playing "tackle" on the hardwood in the family room. $50 for a 8x6 rug... pretty good really! That place is a little like a garage sale, or Marshalls, or something. Odd items, for clearance prices. Works though...

Work is still crazy, but not the "earth shattering, who has time to breathe" kind of crazy we were experiencing a week ago. Looking forward to 4 day week this week (Tuesday off for Veterans Day).

TOTALLY enjoying that we have absolutely ZERO commitments this weekend and next... not a single thing on the calendar!

I think that is all for now....
