Happy Halloween!

This is Lexi, she wanted to be a witch, she has a hat and broom but didn't want to take them to school with her. She was just happy to get to wear Black polish and lipstick!!

I did it!!

Yes, I did it. I did my part in this election, I early voted!! I liked doing that much better than going to the polls on voting day. I felt more relaxed. Everything is going good here. Jeff is still working on his stuff with AR Career Pathways and they told him yesterday to get me to come in and go back to school. I don't know. I wouldn't know what to go for. Definitely not a teacher! I can sub but not full time. They said I could go to be a CNA. Does anyone have any input? Gotta go get kids ready for school. I have to take Bradley to sick call. He has been running fever and says his ear hurts. We all know what that is! See ya!

I don't know if any of you are like me, but I hate trying to come up with a costume for Halloween. It is awful. Waste of money if you ask me. Jeff never has done the Halloween thing. So it is up to me. The kids and I had fun at a little Halloween Carnival thing today. No dressing up though. They got to have fun playing games and sliding down the big blow up slide and, of course, seeing their friends. Jeff left for work this morning at 7:30 and it is 8:45 tonight and he is just leaving work. Hard day for him. I hate that for him. Gotta go tuck in kids for bed. It is wonderful when they come to you and ask you to take them to bed. Later.

Busy Busy

I know we all say we are busy all the time but does it really have to be this busy? I mean I had a friend come my way and I couldn't even think to call her before she got here to let her know what was going on in my life and why I couldn't meet her and visit. Some times are busier than others. Well, here it is. Saturday, Oct. 11th was the day the kids and I were to go to Xander's birthday party in Russellville. Woke up and while getting ready to go we get a call that my mother-in-law, Norma, had passed out in her kitchen. (while making our sandwiches for our trip.) Jeff went up there and they ended up calling 911, she went to the hospital. I was stuck, do I leave or not. I couldn't really do anything here because I have these three kids, so Jeff and I decide for me to go ahead and go on my trip. Xander's b-day party was a success! The kids loved it! They got to skate!
The next morning I get a phone call from Jeff saying that his dad just went to the ER from his mom's room in the hospital. Really bad stomach pains! Come to find out, he had gallstones. On Sunday night Jeff and I and the kids stayed with his dad while Donisha(my sister-in-law) stayed with Norma in the hospital. Well, Norma got out of the hospital on Tuesday. We had Allison's last soccer game of the season that night and on Wednesday morning while taking the kids to school I get a phone call from my father-in-law saying that Norma has passed out again and I need to come get her up. I did and she is fine. She is having trouble with her blood pressure dropping. On Thursday, Gene, (my father-in-law), went into the hospital to have his gallbladder removed. Everything went well there and he got to come home that same day. I did stay with Norma that day. On Saturday, we had another birthday skating party to go to for one of Bradley's friends, Rodney. They all had a blast! Things seem to be slowing down a bit, but there is housework and yard work to be done! So for anyone who has emailed or called and I haven't replied, I'm Sorry. Jeff is at the Doctor right now for his yearly physical. We will see how that one goes! I am expecting good news! Oh, I forgot, Bradley was sick on Friday with some kind of virus. I love being close to my in laws when they need us. We would do anything for them. For those of you who do not know, Jeff's dad is 82 and his mom is 78. But they do really good!! Love to all of you. Miss everyone! Girls from high school, we NEED to get together soon!!

What's up!

I don't have any pictures right now, but I do want to write about what's been going on in our life lately. Okay, last Monday, Sept. 29th, I got a call from mom that morning and she said that my dad was going to have to go to Baptist Hospital in L.R. as soon as possible. I went that evening and stayed at the hospital until Angela(my sister) and I went to her house for the night. Dad had his surgery the next morning at 7:00. I got the privilege of taking Xander to school that morning and also got to see my best friend Tracy in the process. She is a teacher at the school. (Pottsville) I also got to give Madilyn a bath. It was a very good morning! Angela and I got back to the hospital just as dad got out of recovery. He did great! Oh, you probably want to know what he had done. Sorry. He had a pacemaker put in. Now he is doing great! Mom is doing fine now too. My brother and sister-in-law, Chris and Tammy, came to the hospital on Tuesday. It was good to see them. I had to go home that night. Mom and Dad went home on Wednesday. I think Angela babysat Dad on Thursday and Friday, while mom went to work.
Friday, October 3rd, we had Lexi's Luau Birthday party. She had a great time. I made her a palm tree shape cake. She also requested my mom's good fudge, but I had to make it. She got to have a friend spend the night with her and the next morning they had to be at the Bay Harvest Festival Parade at 9:30. They were in it for Just Say No Club. Sunday we had church. Monday we had a field trip with Bradley to the Pumpkin Patch near Piggot. Jeff and I both got to go, which was real nice. When we woke up Monday morning Allison was not feeling well. She had fever most of the day and night. She stayed with Granny that day. (Thank you Granny) This morning I took her to sick call and she was diagnosed with croup/laryngitis. We have medicine and she is doing well as can be. We have Xander's (my nephew) birthday party this weekend, so I hope none of the rest of us get it! Please pray for us. Thank you for reading about my life. I hope you enjoyed it.

How many of me.
LogoThere are
people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

I saw this on another blog and thought it was fun to do. There are quite a few people with my same name. Good thing we have social security numbers! I know I am not doing well with my postings lately, but I can't seem to get the hang of that new camera. I am sorry and will try and do better!
