HUGE GIVEAWAY!! Check this out!

Ok, so everyone knows I like to cook and take care of my family. Well, back at the begining of the year I started taking some quilting classes at our local quilt shop. Loved it!! Well, I have been trying to get in some sewing time as much as possible but w/5 kids and then starting back to work I haven't had the time. Well, here lately I have been getting in some time here and there and just really enjoy it.

I found a new blog tonight and really enjoyed looking around and am very excited to be able to get some fabric that I can't get from our local shop here. Barb is coming out with a new line of fabric next year and it sounds wonderful. While reading I realized that she has a giveaway going on. Well, I just had to enter!! You know me!!!

Changes are on the rise!

Don't want to say just yet but there's a change in the air......... Can't go into it right now but it's going to change our schedules around just a bit will hopefully be for the better.

We have a new babysitter. I think MG likes her. She's done very well w/the change so far. I had to stop off at home today when I ran the kids home (during my lunch~I take my lunch from around 2:30-3:00). She ran up to me and gave me a kiss before I left. She's so sweet! I hate leaving her every day!

Well, that's all I have for now. Have to get the kids ready for bed now.

It's been a while........

I haven't been blogging lately because I have been so busy. We've had the flu in our house......then our oldest son had surgery. He had his tonsils and adnoids removed. They cauterized the turinates and fractured and pushed them back. He was in a lot of pain. I felt so bad for him. He was on a lot of medicine and was just out of it for quite a while. I knew he was hurting just by looking at him. He would look at me and tears would just stream down his face. That was so hard! I couldn't just fix him. I knew that with time he would start to feel better though and that is what I kept thinking about.

I did his rounds of medicines every 3 hours like the Dr. said. I wrote it all down so that we wouldn't get it all mixed up. That really helped. I also wrote down the dosage that I gave him. This way I kept it in my head how much to give him and how much I actually gave him at what time. When I had to return to work and his Mamaw stayed with him she took care of him and gave him his meds.

When we went back for the 2nd check 10 after his surgery he lost 11 lbs. He was kind of surprised to see what he weighed. He now weighs less than his friend that has always been a little stick. I think that tickled him.

Well, I'm off to go to bed.

Hope all is well.
