Sick of Sick

We've had a bug going through our house. It started next door, but when celebrating Christmas with family, you tend share more than just gifts. I was the first one to get it. It was not fun! the dry heaving about killed me, but then it wasn't over, I fell asleep funny and tweaked my neck. even after a full day of a hot pad and one of those massager's, it was still killing. it got worse and traveled down under my shoulder blade and up into the head. I decided today to hit it hard; i took 4 Advil and it took the edge off for a good 4 hours! I almost felt normal. Kolette got it a day later. Poor thing was up till 4am. she seems to be doing great now. Nobody else has gotten it yet. Although I am wondering if Hannah won't. I hope not but with Kolette and her being glued at the hip...guess time will tell.
To top it off, we had a family wedding in Spokane. We had family come into town to stay. They were quite leery. Do you blame them? We've had fun though. The little girls and I stayed home, ordered in, watched a movie or two and did a puzzle.
The family is watching Man vs. Wild. It's a special one that shows all the stuff he's eaten to survive. GROSS! The boys love it! Imagine that...

Gonna be a bear

In this life I'm a woman. In my next life, I'd like to come back as a bear. When your a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for 6 months. I could deal with that! Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that too! When your a girl bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake up to partially grown, cute, cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that! If your a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too. I could deal with that! If your a bear, your mate expects you to wake up growling. He expects that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat! Yup! Gonna be a bear!!

Getting Started...

Thought that this might be fun. Just want to connect with a few of you out there. There are so many cute blogs, anyone got any ideas? hints? anything...?

Kids are in school, and today that's great! Kolette loves the new kitty! (poor thing)... Rory is working, as usual. He is going over to the west side for meetings and I'll be here...with all the kids.

There's a combined birthday party for my mom and dad that we are trying to go to. Mom is turning 80 and Dad just turned 83. Isn't that great? Although it makes me feel old...

Christmas is so fun! We're getting ready, slowly.

The snow was beautiful!
