It's been a while!!!
Well, well, well!!! I thought I'd give a little update as to what our family has been up to lately. Last Tuesday I had my surgery and things went pretty well....painful...but good. My sweet neighbor watched the kids for me so that James could be there with me and it was nice. We had meals brought til Friday night which was nice. The pain meds I was on were good but I was good for nothing. They made me really dizzy and so whenever I got up...I went right back down. James was so sweet and would come home each day for lunch to make it for the girls and I and just to check that we were okay. He's such a babe! He took me to the doc. on Friday to get the drains taken out and those things were crazy! James described them as 6 inch pencils stuck in there. I must admit...it felt sooooo much better after they were out. So...Jarom got sick on Sat and it was great. He got to stay home with me on Sunday and so we had fun watching Scooby Doo together and then I took a nap while he played a video game. Tuesday the kids were off and so we went to buy a washer and dryer and do some other errands while dad tried to play catch-up on all the homework he missed out on while being mom and dad. He was so good to me...I can't even thank him enough. The house may not have been perfectly clean and all that, but I knew the kids were fed and safe and I could rest easy. So, yesterday I was feeling good so I cleaned the entire downstairs...including the carpets! Yeah!!! Today I rearranged all the rooms upstairs and I am sooooo ready for bed. I guess that covers most of our not so fun week and a half....I best go read scriptures with the kids and get them into bed so I can do the same!!!
