Never Ending Story

Well, it happened. We are all sick now and I have a feeling it might be the flu. I thought it was a stomach bug at first but it seems to be getting worse and we have fevers too....grrrrr. Just a little more than 4 days until the hubby comes home. Hopefully we will all be on the mend by then. And hopefully it will warm up some outside so I can open the windows and get rid of these nasty germs. Well, I am off to cuddle two very demanding kiddos and then an early bedtime for all of us. I'll blog more once we are feeling better.

Long Weekend

Well, this isn't going to be a very long post but I wanted to thank my wonderful parents for coming up again this weekend to keep me and the kiddos entertained. It was a wonderful surprise and a much needed break from the "single" parent role.
This morning my poor little man woke up with a fever and was crying inconsolably and my parents and I both knew something was really wrong. So he and I loaded up in the car and went to the ER to find out he has a double ear infection. Poor guy, I don't remember the last time I saw him feeling this bad. And now I am starting to feel yucky, hopefully it is just allergies though.
Well, I am exhausted and ready to turn in but just wanted to post real quick so enjoy the rest of your night all!

Sorry for the lack of blogging of the last week or two. Things have been very busy around here. Hubby left last Friday for army reserve annual training and in the week leading up to that he was pulling some nasty hours for work. Now we have been without him for 4 days and have 12 more to go and mommy is exhausted! These kids wear me out!!! I think my son has been acting up some because he misses daddy and doesn't understand he won't be home before dinner. He is just tired of mommy and wants the big kid daddy to play with. Before hubby left the kids were in our room with us while he was packing and decided that they wanted to go along too...(please ignore all the mess in the background)

This is what he does when you tell him to smile!!!!

Hopefully I can update some more in the next few days but for now I am heading to my bed to relax and unwind. Happy St.Paddy's Day all!

One Week

In one week we have gone from the city being shut down for almost a foot of snow and record low temperatures to it being 80 degrees and the windows being open. Anyone else find that particularly weird?!

Ladies I Need Your Help!

I posted this on my other blog too, but I really need some input and I know you ladies will be a great help!!! .......
I received an email from one of my favorite local bead stores asking me to donate jewelry or beads to the The "Glass Slipper" Project and I am just dying to do it. The "Glass Slipper" Project is a part of the local "Cinderella Dreams" project which ensures that no young woman is denied her chance to experience a quintessential event of adolescence – attending her Prom. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings--anything sparkly is fair game and will be given new life by the girls who wear them on prom night.

Now my only problem is what to donate. It has been a long time since I have been in high school (we won't go there!) and I have no idea what the teenage trends are right now. I need your help ladies to decide what to make! Please take a look at my shop, Ella Scott Jewels, and see if you think that the there is anything in there a teenager would like. If not, give me some suggestions please. I just got some great candy colored stones in that I haven't gotten to use yet but can always use on this project. Any and all input is greatly appreciated, but hurry I really need to get these done this weekend...they are due by next weekend! THANKS!!!!

Let it snow, and snow, and snow, and snow!

We finally got snow! I haven't seen a snow like this since I was in high school so I am enjoying it quite a bit! We took the kiddos out this morning and they were loving it. My hubby even got a snow day...yippee! I'm not exactly sure how much we got because of the drifts but it is somewhere between 8 and 12 inches. Needless to say things in the city aren't moving quite as fast as they usually are right now, and that is just fine with me. So we are just going to enjoy the rest of the day relaxing, playing some more and drinking a little more hot chocolate. I hope everyone else is staying warm, it is really cold out there.

I don't know if you can see it or not, but that is a tree that fell overnight that is completely covering our driveway. Good times!

Completely shameless plug!
