Roller Coaster

Well, life seems to have run me down but, here’s to getting back on the ride. Got tons going on with the boys right now. R & I were sick by last weekend & before this weekend even came, the three boys got it. I felt terrible for A, Z, & L. They got hit with what I had–sore throat, runny nose, little bit of cough & now R is getting a sore throat again & he was the only one who managed to kick it last week. So, having to try and keep on top of things with that going on.


But, we’re doing it. After waking up at 6 AM for two days, Z let me sleep until 8 because I moved him into the bed at 6 AM after he woke up at 5:30. Since then, it has been a “I got to thinking that if I want him work with me, than I need to work with him too” kind of morning. So, this morning, I bathed all three boys & got them dressed. Took a shower & put on some nice clothes, did my hair & combed the boys. I’ve started laundry & begun downsizing the boy’s clothing again. I tried to before but, I was attached to the clothes or thought they were super cute so, I didn’t want to get rid of them. But, I found the best way to do it was to ask L if he wanted to wear it or if he wanted A to. I tried asking him if he wanted to wear it or put it in the bag & I tried asking if he wanted to wear it or if he wanted the garage man to take it but, I don’t think he was quite getting it. But, I have lots left to do on the house. R doesn’t like a messy house so, if I clean it while he is at work, while the boys nap, than I don’t leave him with stuff he feels obligated to do & we get more time with him so, here’s to Day 1 of trying. So, A is sleeping & I am taking a couple minutes to myself & then I’ll go finish up some stuff in their closet, shuffle the clothes, do the dishes, & get lunch for L & I (eye).

002Just one of the blankets that was covered in stuff to sell. We have over half our garage stuff with things to get rid of–& I just keep finding more. I have gotten our kitchen downsized–at least Round 1. I worked on the living room & the boys room–tackled the toys & clothing. But, I still have another round or two to do in their room. I have tackled the bathroom & the laundry room. I even went through the garage while I was doing the garage sale/moving sale & got a bunch of stuff to get rid of. Now, the treat is finding someone who needs/wants it for a cheap price so that it’ll sell. Instead of having to take, load after load after load to Salvation Army or the dump. Did a garage sale Fri-Sat & we made just over $100. Going to throw another one, next weekend & then whatever is left will get taken to Salvation Army & write off as a tax credit, cause with the move about a month away, we’re going to need to focus on getting boxes, a job(s), packing, a place to live, the truck, etc. I don’t want to have to try and pencil too many garage sale in on my weekends, especially because that’s the only time we really have as a family to just relax and enjoy each other.

Well, as I was writing this up, “Unfortunately, at this time and after careful consideration, we regret to inform you that you have not been selected for this position.” letter. At least it’s something. Should be getting a handful of those in the next couple of weeks. Guess we’ll just have to wait & see. Really wish that R would get some offers but, hasn’t happened yet. I got some offers for here & then a place about 2 hours away but, not where we are trying to move to so, praying that one of us will get something so we can get start.

Before I forget–I got my results today, after being ignored on Friday. My biopsy was normal but, my pap smear was abnormal. Sigh–the doc wasn’t to redo my colposcopy because he thinks that he missed something. It will be my third one this year. I am really hoping that I can hold off on another colposcopy & just take another pap in 6 months. I also read that my chances of having cervical cancer are small, right now but, it sounds like I have a STI (sexually transmitted infection). I am praying that this is really nothing & that I am just getting worked up over nothing. Makes me sick to my stomach not knowing what’s going on.

When do you usually get sick? Who is usually sick more often? What time do your kiddos wake up? What’s your favorite chore? What’s your least favorite? Do you do garage sales or just throw stuff out? What does your family enjoy doing on the weekends? Have you ever gotten a rejection letter or phone call from a job?

Recap the Awesomeness

Well, here’s a recap since Friday—

Friday, I had my colposcopy & other than one area, everything looks to be okay. But, I have to wait until this coming Friday to see if I have bad bacteria or not. So, still have a chance of cervical cancer but, fingers crossed for good news on Friday. Got a biopsy too. It wasn’t as painful as I thought it would be but, I definitely don’t like the results of feeling like Auntie Flo came to visit again. I don’t feel like having a colposcopy ever 6 months. Went to bed & started feeling a sore throat, it has only gotten worse from there–oye! I also did my last workout Friday night, until I kick this cold.


Saturday, we built a blanket fort with the boys and spent the whole weekend in it. R & I even slept in it with Z in his bassinet. It was so much fun. Took up our whole living room & as I am typing this, it’s still up in our living room.

035editedSunday, we sold some stuff & I got my new camera to get better pictures for the photography clients. We hung out in the fort & soaked up as much time as we could with our boys & each other. Played with my camera this weekend–as you can tell. & got some awesome pictures.




My hubby even got me a treat!  We had Taco Bell for dinner & a little drink. So yummy!


This morning, woke up to Z talking to me–his little smiles & coo’s make morning so much more enjoyable. Now, the boys have had breakfast & are watching a little bit of Justin Time. Z is sleeping so, time for mommy to eat.

Highlight of the morning: L coming out into the living room & pointing to my new camera & saying, “I take picture of you.” So, that’s on the agenda when the other two take naps. But, until then, it’s time to watch A dance to the music on Justin Time, where he bounces up and down–bending his little knees, Z sleeps peacefully in front of the fan, & L is sitting on the couch, hidden behind Z’s carseat.

Love mornings with our boys!

Next weekend shall be an adventure, as we have a moving sale planned & with 3 kiddos, who knows how it will go.

What exciting things did you do this weekend? What are your plans for next weekend? What are some things that make your mornings with your kiddos super enjoyable?
