this past week.....till now

Monday Lillian had a softball game and they won. Score was 12-8. Of course she didn't hit the ball at all nor did she catch one. But she loves going and being a part of the whole thing.

Jacob had a game on Tuesday night and his team won too. Score was 12-4. He didn't hit the ball either. My sister watched Lukas for me. Good thing to cause it was so cold up at the park that night. Then it started sprinkling when the game was about over.

Today was Payton's last day of preschool till next school year. They had a little party and invited parents and siblings. It was pretty cute and fun.

The weather this weekend is supposed to be warm and sunny. It better hold out for us. We are going up to our trailer at the lake for the weekend. We will do some boating, fishing and lots of playing.

Happy Memorial Day and have a great weekend!!!!

wow-one whole week!!

I can't believe it's been a whole week since I've posted anything. This last week hasn't been real busy, but I've had a kink in my back and it has moved up to my neck. So I havn't felt well and I've been tired a lot this week. I guess life is catching up with me.

Monday I had my very last Girl Scout meeting. My girls bridged to Junior Girl Scouts for next year (which actually means they are going to move up one age level-since they are going to 4th grade). We had dinner (which was fried chicken, mashed potatoes, macaroni, fruit salad, brownies, and chips) at the park, we did a little skit about the girl scout promise, then I had them walk over the bridge after I put their Junior pins on them. They had a blast. I was sad to see them and I go. But it will all work out.

Tuesday we went to a little cookout for Parents as Teachers. Then I took Jacob to Cub Scouts. The other kids played on the playground for awhile.

Wednesdays games got rained out again. For the third time in a row. It's getting old. Lillian and Jacob are not practicing either. Oh well I guess.

I have nothing planned for this weekend except laundry, dishes, and maybe a trip to the park or a walk around the block.

Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to me!!!

Today was one of my lazy Sundays that I love. I was on the computer for a little while and I kept the kids from killing each other every now and again. All in all a nice day. Except all this rain washing us away. My gosh I don't think it is ever going to stop.

Happy Mother's Day to all mom's everywhere.

Build-a-bear Saturday

Do you ever do stupid things when you are nervous and people are around?? We went to Build-a-bear Saturday. It was kind of crazy getting there with me being my ditzy (non-blonde) self. I scheduled a party for my Brownie troop-this is their last year as Brownies and they made the money by selling cookies. Three of us were driving to get all the girls there. I gave the other mom's the directions I was taking. We were on our way and I took a different way then I told them cause I was talking and not paying attention to where I was going. I felt so stupid. I think everyone is used to it cause they weren't surprised. But we made it 30 minutes late and we had a blast. Most of the girls had never been there before.

Lillian and Payton had friends over to play the rest of the night and I relaxed.

Mondays . . .

Yesterday I had some errands to run (seems like everyday lately). I had to take Payton to school because she wouldn't get up in time for the bus. After she got out of school I took her to the doctor for a check up on her foot. Since she wouldn't take the Sulphatrim-antibiotic the e.r. dr prescribed her-the family doctor gave her k-flex. She is supposed to take this one 4 times a day. How in the world am I gonna remember that-I guess when she reminds me like this morning. So hopefully she is on her way to a full recovery and no more drama for a while. I can only handle so much at a time.

Sundays are such a lazy day! (most weeks) I feel like I don't want to get off the couch. No laundry got done-some dishes got done (only cause I had to to use the sink)-kids didn't get rooms clean-floors didn't get swept. Oh well the mess will still be there tomorrow.

Payton's foot is still swollen and red. But she was jumping, walking and running today like there wasn't anything ever wrong with it. She wouldn't take her medicine today. So I am going to call the doctor tomorrow and see what he says. Can't wait till she is all done with this foot thing.

Funfilled day at the hospital!!

So thursday night we were having a nice fun evening in the backyard. Well Payton (my 4 year old) got a stick caught in her flip-flop and scratched her foot really good (right above her toes). Friday morning she woke up and wouldn't walk on her hurt foot. Daddy looked at it and said it looked bad. It was all red and getting swollen with red tracer mark going up her foot. I said it just looks like a scratch. Later on about 2pm my friend calls me and asks if her little girl could come play with Payton for a little bit. (she is Payton's best friend) I asked Payton and she didn't want to cause her foot hurt. So I knew something was wrong and maybe we should call the doctor. My friend is a nurse and she said she would come down and look at it. So she did and she said you better take her to the hospital. So I did, and it is infected and it had a big splinter stuck in it. She screamed the whole time the doctor was prodding at her boo-boo. He had to cut 1/8" to get to the splinter. Needless to say I have to carry her around and cater too her like she is a handicap. (thank god she really isn't) Payton also has to take and antibiotic. That's always fun. She puked last night cause she thinks it's nasty. I have to threaten her for her to take it. :'(

Nice, warm day!!

Today was a very nice day. Although I didn't spend that much time outside as I should have. Lukas and I went to the grocery. Then I had a friend and her kids over for lunch. I have working on these little scrapbooks for my girl scout girls all evening off and on. I want to get them done cause they are going to be so cute. But then what am I going to work on next??

We all played outside throwing the baseball around and swinging. It was a fun evening.

Tomorrow it is supposed to rain. Jacob and Lillian both have late baseball games too. I hope and am praying that they don't get rained out. Wish us luck.......
