Well girls are still sick and dh was pretty yucky yesterday too. Then ds started to seem fussy and congested rubbing his eyes so i gave him some medicine too. He seemed to settle after that. Hes a good baby so i know when something is off with him.

Working thru laundry still i changed all kids bedding last night washed floors and dd2 threw up last night. Mostly i think drainage gagging her not like pukey stuff.

Dh actually cleaned that up. Ha.

I havent been cooking cause no one is really eating much. All dh wants is campbells soups so i need to go to store for those. I ran and borrowed from mom and dad last night and some paper towels. Ate some ribs and coleslaw there. Drool. I needed that.

Awwww, poor babies! Hope everyone is better soon, Katie! Xo to you!

LAAAAAZY DAY! YEEHAW! I was up a ton in the night.... It was raining SO HARD it woke me up. And it was a torrential downpour for almost 2 hrs straight! The rain was so loud on the roof and on the ground....it was insane! I was up from 1240-2, then woke at 5 when dh wouldn't wake up to his alarm....and then told him how worried I was that the pig wasn't sheltered enough from all the rain and what if he was drowning in all the wet. Lol. Dh checked....he was fine....and snorting and snuffling like mad when dh went to see him. I heart that durn pig! I fell asleep again about 615..=and woke briefly around 7....then for good around 840. Lol. What a night!

Dh is enjoying his day off! He went for his run, had a long epsom salt bath to help his back and his sooore leggies, and has been watching some shows on netflix. Kids are in one of their rooms, watching the 2nd hobbit movie. We won't hear from them for HOURS! lol! I'm in my jammies still....and have had my coffee, spent a long time praying, read a bit, and am now online a bit. . Also texting w family about things to do when we are visiting. (And the dysfunction has already started. Yah. )

Tomorrow it's not supposed to rain, so I need to clean up a few big items that I put in the barn, and get them to the antiques mall. I am moving booths to a bigger one, so I can get more items in. I love the booth, cause it's NOT the normal 10x10 or 8x10....but is 15' long by 5' deep on one side, and 6' deep on the other. (The 5' side has a doorway, and needs to be handicapped accessible.). The length of it makes me ever so happy! I'm planning to set up the right side as a bedroom....and the left side w kitchen items!! Eeee!

And wed I am mtg 2 ladies from church at panera bread co for coffee and visiting. One lady's dh leaves today on a deployment...and they've only been married a short time, and have not dealt with this before. So as I think of things....I try to share them w her (about the realities of deployments...and how to let go of expectations....and how to LIVE AND ENJOY LIFE, even when dh is gone)....and also she NEEDS a support system. Her dh isn't active duty, but reserves, so she doesn't have the support of the other wives in his unit....and THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE! So we will pray with her and for her and help her walk thru this time of crazy.

Yeah, mom sent out some texts about plans while we are up....but didn.t include dad in the texts. Then dad sent texts....didn't include mom in the texts.....sigh. When we were up there last yr, I had to tell each person any plans....cause no one tells the other. Omg. And sis that lives close....she was like, welcome to my world....and thank you for your sanity! She.s about to lose her mind up there. The GOOD THING, while I am there with everyone else, we ALL won't fit in ONE vehicle, so I can drive on my own, and get away from being captive to their crazy! I'd say I would send my kids w the grandparents....but neither drive well, dad's tbi makes it very very stressful for him to drive....and kids just add too much extra.....AND he has recently driven terribly aggressive, nearly causing an accident....and I don't trust him driving my kids. The kids will not be happy about this. I WAS planning on them sleeping over a couple of nights, but not after recent actions. I won't allow that....and their daddy said NO, too. My dad is NOT going to be happy, but when you act like a d*mn fool, then you lose the privileges of free access to my children. I will protect my children, and I will set boundaries. And should he throw a fit, I will turn around and take my children home. I will NOT allow him to verbally abuse me, nor will I allow my children to witness such things. (He tried to start crap w me last spring....and I wouldn't put myself in his path for him to go on a rampage w me. We ALL avoided him till he calmed down. I felt bad for mom, cause she prolly had to listen to him. I'm not 8, or 16, and no longer have to listen till he finally shuts up! I can walk away!)
