Andy is doing much better today. He is able to hold down food and walk around. They are thinking about releasing him in the next few days. I haven't heard what the doctors have said about what he had. Thank you for your prayers!

Prayer Request

I have a prayer request for my nephew Andy. He went into the FTMC emergency room last Thursday night with complications from strep and ended up having seizures. They transferred him the Akron's Children Hospital on Saturday and he is still there. The doctors aren't certain what is going on yet. He can't hold down food, he has high blood pressure, blood in his urine, headaches and had another seizure tonight. They decided to sedate him tonight and have a group of doctors come in to do more tests. Please pray for him and his family.

I Attacked My Mom This Time!!

We had a rough start to our trip. Doug threw up all day and was sick the whole way there because of his root canal meds. I went to take Taffy to be boarded and she didn't have a voluntary vaccine that was required for that boarding facility so she had to come with us. At least we found that out before we went to Disney!! Anyway, once we got there we had fun and I was able to "Stacey" attack my mom for the first time!

Weary Wednesday

I've been so busy I haven't had time to blog. On Monday morning Doug woke up in a lot of pain and had to go to the dentist. It turns out that he needed a root canal and had that Tuesday morning. Today he woke up and is very nauseaous and tired.

We had a snow day on Monday so the kids were home. I've been working 12 hours a day the last two days since we are traveling for a short trip to visit my parents. I'm not even packed yet and I'm leaving soon!

My sweet hubby came home with a laptop yesterday after his root canal. We had been talking about getting one since I'm working on the computer so much and ours was slowing down. I got it all set up and using it now!!!

I have to go feed Garrett lunch, get on my weekly ops conference call and pack as long as Doug is feeling better.

This video needs some explaining. For those of you that don't know Doug absolutely loves to talk about weather. When we went to a birthday party today in a church gym they had a blue wall and he just couldn't resist the urge. Do you see what I have to put up with? This is why I "Stacey" attack him so much.

Hot Tub/Menu Monday

Its official, thanks to pushing from Eric, our hot tub is open. Doug and I tried it out for the first time last night ;) and we tried it out with the kids tonight. It was so dark out I actually couldn't see them through the camera when I took this. Its so nice and relaxing to sit in there and hear ice bouncing off the pool.

Here's a list of what we are eating this week:

  • Stuffing and Chicken Casserole
  • Pizza Burgers
  • French Onion Soup and crackers
  • French Bread Pizza
  • Eggs and Bacon
  • Pork Chops, Corn and Couscous

Ultimate Attack!!

I had the ultimate attack on Doug Friday night. I'll give you some background info first. I received a call that we were still in the running to win a new car but we won a $200 in a shopping spree and we just had to listen to a 45 minute presentation on a cleaning system and give them our opinion. If we let them come over that night it would be $500. I figured I can tolerate 45 minutes for a $500 shopping spree. The person came over at 8pm and did his speech. He was not done until 11pm. The guy was very annoying at the end trying to get us to buy an $1800 vacuum system. Not only did I make Doug listen to a 3 hour cleaning presentation but I actually got him to do the test vacuuming. Doug was thrilled. When we logged on to see where we could spend our $500 we were extremely disappointed and wanted nothing from the site. What a disappointment! I'm such a sucker but at least I can torture Doug with it!

Other than that we had a good weekend. We took the kids to the Home Depot work shop and they made memory boxes. I think they have these workshops every month with different project and completion pins. They gave the kids their own aprons and they got a pin for completing the project and were able to keep their memory boxes. Both kids loved it and they can't wait to go back.
