Updates and the such

Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes for my Grandfather over the last two weeks. I am so glad to report that he is doing better and has been released to rehab for PT. He is approaching 85 years old and he needs a little help getting the bones moving again!

With that being said, I am sooooo behind on reading all my blogs, FB, and I must admit work. So it is almost like I have to devote small portions of time to read everything that I want to catch up on! ( otherwise, I would just sit here all day, and be a computer junkie)

Luke is sweet as pie. He has my personality - today we were leaving Wal-mart and he was just a talking to everybody in the store. The child doesn't meet a stranger. When we got ready to leave, he tells everybody "bye" looks around, finds some one else - "bye bye" when we are in the parking lot, yelling "bye bye" to the people getting out of their cars. The boy is not right!

Just a Quick Update

I flew to Memphis today to be with my family. My grandfather is very sick. All still from the Christmas hospital admission. He was practically on his way out the door when he had a terrible set back. Now we are back on ICU - stepdown seeming to start all over. He is getting blood, plasma, and Vit K, he has GI problems, lung problems, just to name a few. Please pray for him - and the doctors that they will have wisdom in his treatment. He is sooooo tired!
Today I learned Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.

My Wonderful Husband

This week has already been an adventure for me with work and it is only Tuesday night, late. Generally I try to do laundry on Mondays, because the Emma and Dougie go back to their Mom's house on Sunday evening so I have a full basket from the previous week. I swear, I think Emma is changing outfits three times a day! I even asked her this week and she responded, "Well, I'm not changing clothes, but I am layering". Anyway, back to the story.... Monday comes and goes - no time for laundry. Tuesday arrives, off to work I go, leave the house at 7 - Doug is home today, so I leave him a sweet note with a few honey do's, nothing too big. I slipped in the note, if you have time for laundry, that would be great... We have discussed moving some furniture around, he had a friend in town, they got it moved! He delivered all the checks (three of them) and did the laundry :) . I was soooooo excited when I got home. Well, he did admit, he had help with the laundry, Sara - our wonderful house keeper - couldn't be a working mom without her - but he finished it. Sara said she saw my note, and knew Mr. Doug might not get to the laundry, so she started a couple of loads for him while she cleaned today! LOVE HER - But I really appreciate him for finishing - he even folded!

Back to Reality

Anyone remember that song "Back to life- back to reality" That is how I feel this week! I have had a glorious two weeks off from work, for the most part. Now, it's back to the grind! We celebrated our Jesus' birth on Christmas eve with Dougie, Emma, and Luke. This year Pot and Gaga joined us for the festivities along with Greg, Doug's brother. We had a wonderful Christmas eve morning, exchanging gifts from one another and exploring to see what Santa delivered the night before. The kids got a Wii from Santa - Dougie's expression was priceless - basically it was "weeeeeeee got a wiiiiiiii" as he was jumping up and down! Dougie also got two airsoft guns, one a rifle, and the other a pistol. Emma got a caboodle filled with nail polish, remover, cotton balls and the works! Last but not least Santa left a tricycle for Luke - Thankfully it has a long arm that Daddy and I can use to push him until his little legs grow a few more inches!

So, now it's Monday - a new year. I just realized this is my first post of the new year. I sort of post backwards. It seems as if I already told about my trip to Mom's. But I am just getting to post about actual Christmas. I will definetely leave pictures at a later date - hopefully tomorrow I will have time. Back to work today for me- had a great day to start of my new year. Thank you God! Back to work for Daddy too. He left to New York this evening, but soon to return tomorrow. Short trip! Speaking of New York, my Mom asked if he was going to the resturant that had a steak for 200.00$ HOLY COW - supposedly these cows are imported from Japan and have been hand massaged. Oh the days I'd like to be a Japanese cow - just think about all the massages I'd get! But no, there is no way his company would approve a 200.00$ dinner - hand massaged or not! Mom said, I would just like to know somebody who has eaten one of those steaks! Haha-

The big kids are back home with us this week- oh how I missed them -They go back to school tomorrow. They say they are excited, but we will see at 6:30 in the morning. Luke has really gotten into reading the last few weeks. He returned to his normal schedule today too, walked right into Ms. Sherrie's house and said "Hi Rerrie" Poor baby, has pink eye, bilateral - have you ever tried to put eye drops in a 22 month old? I practically have to straddle on top of him and pin his arms to his side with my legs - so I can have two hands free - one to pry his squenched eyes open and the other to squeeze the antibiotic drops in!

Goodnight, all are asleep here and so should I!
