Been awhile since I updated..

Dh ended up having strep throat and an acute sinus infection. So he was really, really sick!! He stayed in bed for 5 days straight!!

We ended up NOT getting the snow the kids were so excited about. I told them not to worry, we will get snow.

Not to much else to really post about today. We had a really nice low key Thanksgiving. Next week Travis & Shawn are coming down. We're very excited about that! :)

I'll be starting my christmas shopping very soon! I decided this year Im going to do it all online. I don't want to run store to store this year. I hate that.

Kids are ecstatic!!

We're expecting 2" of snow tomorrow morning. lol It's raining now, and has been for the last several hours, so if it does snow I have a feeling it won't stick to anything. the sick household. Dh walked in the door today at 10am looking like warmed over death. He's sick. :( That means everyone in this house has had this virus but me! But moms can't get sick. Im pretty sure the house would spontaneously combusted if I got sick. I do have a very bad earache in my right ear draining into my throat making my throat VERY, VERY sore. The only relief I can find is ice cream. Oh and it tastes sooo good!! Any excuse to eat ice cream right??!??

Dh is home!!

WOOO HOOO!! He got home last night around 9pm. I wasn't expecting him until today and was over the moon excited when he called at 6pm from Sidney, NE saying he'd be home in a few hours!!

I slept in this morning, I mean REALLY slept in this morning!! I got up at..are you ready????....2pm!! Dh & the kids were on their way out the door to get some groceries and some late lunch. :) It's now 4pm and they are still gone. It feels FANTASTIC to be home alone!! I seriously should do something productive, but screw feels much better to sit here and blog!! :)

snow, rain and the smell of winter

Today we got our first little dusting (and I mean LITTLE) of snow. It snowed for a few, sleeting a bit, then rained a little. The temps were sooo darn cold!! Im not sure how cold it actually was, not fridgid, but considering 2 days the temps were in the 80's it really felt cold!!

The smell of winter is our neighbors have thier fireplace going. I can really smell it down here in our basement. At first I thought our (or someones) house was on fire. I wish we had a fireplace, well maybe I really don't wish it with the kids and everything, but I know if we did have one I'd really enjoy it. Just imagine curling up with a book, under a nice blanket sitting in front of a fireplace. Sounds heavenly to me. :)

Dh is still in Canada on his male bonding weekend. He has calls daily to check in on us and to find out how the kids are doing. He got his deer yesterday (a nice one he said) and they will be starting the ride home tomorrow, getting home Sunday night sometime. It can't come soon enough for me! It's been one heck of a week!!! Starting with B being sick, me taking him to the dr., the dr. saying B has IBS. I had my doubts, but trusted the dr. Folish thing for me to do..because A got sick and complained of a stomach ache Wednesday night and low and behold W decided to join the "sick ones" today with the same symptoms. B & A are pretty much back to normal and Im hoping W will be better in the next couple of days also.

Great weather for November!!!

I can not believe how fantastic the weather has been here!! Today it was 72°, tomorrow 77°!! I could live with this weather year round!!

Let's see..what to post about.

The kids had a great halloween (though it was pretty cold that night) and came home with more candy than anyone could eat! They've stopped asking for their candy now, so I think it is about time to start weaning it down. THANK GOD! This halloween candy has played havoc with my dieting!! A was "Sleeping Beauty", W was "Batman" and B was "Spiderman". They had a blast taking turns (aka fighting over) ringing doorbells.

Dh left this week for a hunting trip with some of his buddies to Canada. So Im flying solo. Yea it is HARD work, but the best thing is I don't have to do much cooking. :) The kids can/do survive on pancakes, frozen pizzas, sandwiches, hamburger helper, and a variety of other frozen/easy to cook meals.

I had to take B to the dr. on Monday because he had been complaining of a stomach ache, 2 x-rays, bloodwork, and a urine sample later he was dx'd with IBS. I have never heard of a child getting IBS, but our dr. said he dx's at least 1 kid a month with it. The dr. said he'll outgrow it. B now has meds and is *suppose* take it 3x a day for the next week. But since the pain is now gone (after just 1 day of doses) he won't take it. {SIGH} He says "My tummy doesn't hurt mom..I don't need it". Im just hoping that IF the pain does come back, he'll take it again.

Anyone else VERY happy that it's finally November 7th?! I've had it up to my eyeballs with political BS! I don't even answer my phone anymore!! Im sick of hearing voice recordings from Joe Blow telling me he needs my vote and reminding me to vote. Isn't the 50 million politicial daily TV commericals enough?!
