Well Michael didnt feel much better on Tuesday but I had to send him to school for a little while till Ray got out of work. I gave Michael daddy's cell phone and told him when he really didnt feel good to call daddy to come get him. He did really good made it untill lunch when his throat was too sore to eat. When he called Ray was on his way to the school already to take him to the docs. The doctor said he had strep again the 3rd time in 18 months and if he gets it again before school gets out we might want to really think about taking his tonsils out. Then he gave him a new chewable med, wow is that easier than the bottle of pink shit they usually give him. By the next morning he got up and said mommy guess what my throat doesnt hurt anymore unless I take a real big swallow. Of course it helps he wanted to go to school for the class christmas party.

Last night I made 6 batches of cookies some for my work party, some for Michaels daycare party and some for Ray to take to work right now I dont care if I ever eat another cookie. I am soo tired I worked 10.5 hours yesterday with no lunch was up till 10 cooking and am looking at another busy day today. Who said the days before christmas would be slow at work.(no I dont work retail)

If I dont have time to post this weekend everybody please have a safe and happy Christmas, no drinking and driving and enjoy every minute with your family. I get edgy after spending to much time with mine but then I lay in bed and think I would really miss all of them if anything ever happened and I want to remember every quirky minute that I spend with them.
I'll take lots of Pictures this weekend and problably post on Monday, I have the day off.

crazy ucky weekend

Well this weekend completely sucked. I dont even remember what we did Friday night, Saturday we ran around and did some errands and got ready for the family Chrismas party at my moms house well on our way there I started to feel ucky, within an hour of getting there I started puking, and puking and I couldnt stop it sucked my entire family was there and everyone kept asking are you ok how r u feeling. I'm fucken puking my guts up people and my truck is blocked in the yard how the hell do you think I feel I want to go home. So we get out of there and I get the poops worse than the crohns poops like liquid. I know to much info but I want to share. Sunday I get up from bed not like I was sleeping and vegged on the couch all day got absuletly nothing done. Ray and Mark fixed the snowmobile trailer so at least when the sleds are ready at the garage Ray can go pick them up.
This morning Michael woke up not feeling good, everyone was working but my stepdad so he kept Michael till Ray got out of work and I started my day off today at the hospital getting an xray it was scheduled, I was told a small intestine x ray no big deal. I couldnt eat or drink after midnight and I didnt think any about that figured I had to be empty, well I get there they take one xray and say ok now you need to drink three glasses of this thick white barrium stuff, I'm like what I wasnt told about this she's like well you drnk these and we take an xray every 15 minutes till its all the way thru your bowels and then the doc takes some fancy pictures of your small intestines. So I'm like how long will this take she says 2-3 hours. I was thinking oh shit I need to get back to work. But no worry I have crohns it will run right thru me she kinda laughed. Well she comes back in 15 and takes one xray I go back to the waiting room wait like 5 minutes and she comes back and says your not going to believe this its all the way where it needs to be already. I wanted to go see I told ya so. When the doc came in he was kinda surprised too so instead of 2-3 hours I was out of there in less than an hour. one benefit of crohns I guess.
Michael is still yucky tonight I sooo hope he is better tomorrow cuz I have nobody to watch him and I cant take time off, crist I was late today and got the guilt trip all day about how far behind we were, I just dont want to listen to it.
ok enough crabbing its almost christmas is everyone ready I have two things left to get my dad and Rays sister. I am so not christmas mood yet I just hope we are all healthy next weekend.
Michael is crying got to go later

I got this as an email today and I liked it so I wanted to share it with all of you


Poem by Sharon Steege

I don't know who they are
Saying I can't greet the crowd
The way that I want to
Can't say CHRISTMAS out loud.
I walk into a business place
See things that I rather not see
But dare I not say CHRISTMAS
And ask for a "holiday" tree.

What happened to freedom of speech
And living in the land of the free
How can they take my CHRISTMAS money
But can't say MERRY CHRISTMAS to me.

Men and women have given their lives
So we could still go free
I wonder how they would feel
At saying "HOLIDAY" TREE.

Come on NORTH AMERICA let's wake up
Don't let our freedom escape
If they get by with doing this
What else will they take.

This is starting to get out of hand,
And I've begun to keep track
Well I've just about had enough

I hope this gets all over the net
If we all stand united and take freedom back
'Twill be our best CHRISTMAS YET!

week in review

I cant believe it has been an entire week since I've blogged. I kept thinking of things to say and would get to busy or fall asleep. ok now for the short version of my week.
Monday must not have been to exciting I dont remember what I did except taking Michael to
Tae Kwon Do and watched him get to advancement stripes on his yellow belt.
Tuesday we went to the doctors and I learned how to give myself an injection in the leg once a week. We tired half a dose this week and will go to a full dose next week he figured that if I was going to have a reaction lets find out on half a dose.
Wednesday mmm nothing to speak of
Thursday wow I'm boring work, drive home go to bed what a day.
Friday MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!! Lets see my darling hubby gave me a $100 gift card to borders books said that would keep me busy for a couple of weeks he is soo right.
I have to say tho my day started off pretty shitty I felt like the worlds worse mommy but I later redeamed myself. You see they were calling for snow I'm used to snow and didnt think anything about it till I got to daycare. I walked in and told his teacher please dont let michael take his gameboy on the bus I dont want a bigger kid to take it, and his teacher says no worry there is no school today. The first thing I think is oh shit Michael doesnt have a lunch with him. He watches cartoons every morning so I didnt see the school cancellations on tv. I felt like shit I called everyone I could think of. And the snow started early and came fast. Just a quick fact that it always snows on my birthday cuz when I was younger I would get new cloths and would never be able to wear them cuz of the snow. Anyways I'm at work trying to find someone to bring him something when the idea struck I called the school to make sure it was ok and the plan was on. I called a pizza place used my cc and sent Michael Pizza at daycare so I was a good mommy again. I snuck out of work a couple of minutes early so I could pick up Michael in the snow then we all went to my mom's for baked haddock dinner. mmmm good. Michael spent the night with my mom to give Ray and I a chance to have fun what did we do went home and went to sleep man are we old.
Saturday We got up and went out to breakfast picked up Michael and went to see Nardia the lion the witch and the wardrobe. What a good movie I'm really glad we brought Michael with us. This is a definite buy when it comes out. Then Michael went to MeMe's house cuz we had plans for the night with a bunch of friends. But before we went out Ray the sneak had a surprise for me we went to the mall looking for a snowblower and Ray says lets stop in Wilsons leather. He new I was looking for a dress coat and had found one he liked for me and said to try it on. It is my Chrismas present and he needed me to try it on so he didnt get the wrong size its beautiful black leather with fur lining 3/4 length. Next we went next door and says I guess you will have to find out both your christmas present I want to get you a mothers ring but you have to pick it out and size that too. So what I know what I'm getting they are things I will have forever. While at the jewely store I got an idea for Jamie's gift. We went and picked that out today. Then we went out with some friends and for us we stayed out till last call I cant remember the last time we did that.
Sunday I woke up at 630 and started Blueberry muffins and started staining the trim for the new windows we put in last weekend nothing like standing outside in your pjs in snow staining wood the neighbors must think I'm insain. Mark has slept on our couch since he has quite a few drinks last night and I wouldnt give him his keys. It was also a ploy since Ray needed a hand this morning putting things up top in the shed. When my mom and Roland got here me, mom and Jamie took off and went shopping I got the new leather but I still needed a jacket for snowmobiling and icefishing so we took off for LL Bean talk about insain two weeks before christmas the place was packed. Then I took Jamie to the jewelry store and told her Jamie this is what you are getting but you need to pick it out as it will be something you will have the rest of your life so we went in and ordered her high school class ring. She is a sophomore I am hoping having this ring will motivate her to graduate the year she should. We walked around the mall for a little bit and came home completely exhausted. But the day wasnt over we still neeed a tree its not very big and I dont have a hell of alot of decorations but its nice and Michael is happy what more can a parent want.
So that is my week in review hope your week went ok and next week is even better with the holiday coming if I dont come around for a few days dont panic I'm just really busy and really tired. Talk at ya soon.

I'm sorry I didnt make it back the other night. I havent stopped one minute till just now. we are all soo tired I think everyone will be sleeping by 7 tonight.
Yesterday Michael and I got up early went to McDonalds for breakfast then drove almost 2 hours to pick up the new windows for the house (we actually have a trailer and its hard to find windows that fit thats why we had to go so far), Ray had went bow hunting with uncle sam for a couple hours.So then we all met at home around 10 spent 2 hours trimming bushes around the house. Then we had to get ready to go to a christmas party for the part time job Ray has it was a nice party alot of people with new babies the boss looked over at us and said "Well I think I know what all my emplyees do on their off time have you seen all the babies around here" Then we went intown Portland to ride the Narrow Guage RR and see Santa I had planned on coming home between the Party and going to Portland to get warmer jackets but we ran out of time so I froze but Michael got to ride the train so he was happy.
Last night Michael woke up around 10 and started puking he had Ray and I up every hour all night. He messed up his bed, the rug in the hall, and got it all over himself nothing like waking up to puke all over YUCK. I went out around 9am to get Michael some medicine and I called my mom to ask her if she could come over and help me with Michael and the house. I was soo tired and we had to get those window changed today. My stepdad was coming over around 12 when he got out of work to help anyways. So she comes over now my mom has an older mustang rear wheel drive and what does it start doing Snowing. Roland my stepdad doesnt want her out in that car and I learned why today. So anyways she offers to take Michael back to her house for awhile so we can start on the windows. About 10 minutes after she left I get a phone call she is stuck the road is sooo icy she cant move. I have 4 wheel drive so I told her I would be right there. I saw 3 accidents on my way there I was sliding myself you couldnt get any traction. I get to them, Michael is panicking about seeing everyone crash. I told my mom I would drive her car and she can take my truck. What a mistake. I couldnt move it around the corner oh my god what a nightmare. We are sitting at this corner and I cant get her car to go, I decided screw it and backed down a side street into a parking spot and walked back to my mom and Michael at the intersection. I'm standing on the passenger side of my truck telling my mom we'll come back for her car later when WHAM this guy slides around backward and takes the drivers side door out of his car on my back drivers side bumber. The truck slid about 4 feet right into me. I cant remember when I have ever moved so fast. Next thing you know a mini van sides into a parked car across from us. I'm like mom pull my truck into that parking lot I told the guy that hit me to pull out of the way this corner is getting bad there is a big hill on one side and we were at the bottom. We call the police and in the next 15 minutes there were 4 more accidents right there I'm so glad I made my mom move or we would have gotten hit at least 2 more times. So we wait for the PD and wait there were accidents all over town. A cab came sliding down the hill just as some guy came around the corner with his dog I could see what was going to happen and screamed MOVE!!! He grabs his dog gets about 4 feet and the cab jumps the corner right where he was and hits the brick house. The chick backs the cab off the curb says did I brake the house the guy who must have shit himself says no she says good and leaves she never even got out and looked at the front of the cab.
I had no damage at all on my truck luckily nothing not even a dent on my bumper well a little black paint but thats it the guy that hit me had no window on the drivers side and couldnt even open his door but he looks at me and saya hey I just have liability ins you have no damage I can get a door at the junk yard do you care if we wait for the PD. I told him I dont care but I want your name and number just in case. So we took off but since I had called the PD when it happened I told mom that I wanted to stop at the station and tell them what we decided so I didnt get into trouble for leaving the scene. I gave them his name license number and phone number that I had gotten, along with my name and number. There must have been 20 people in the lobby from minor accidents that had just happened. Then I told mom I was not bringing her to her house its way out of the way till the roads were salted. We went back to my house and Roland came directly here when he got out he was mad that she even had the car out but was glad there was no damage we told him it wasnt snowing when she came over and she left as soon as it started cuz she knew he would be mad otherwise. It looked like bumper cars out there.
After all the driving stuff was explained we proceded to install 4 new replacement windows they werent easy but not really hard either. next weekend we are going to put new trim inside the frame and around the outside they are going to make a big difference in the heating cost and my favorite thing about them no more looking for sticks to hold the damn window open in the summer. Oh summer how I miss the, I think fall is my absolute favorite time of year but I hate the slippery roads of winter.
Ok so after all this my GREAT news I bought Michael and I tickets to Florida we are leaving Feb 9 and coming home the 13th just a quick weekend to visit with KAT and take the kids to disney so Michael can go on space mountain this year he will be tall enought for all the rides at disney and I think all but 1 at MGM. I havent decided if I want to go to MGM or to sea world or maybe Universal but we are going to 2 different places and spending one day at the beach weather permitting. Know what Ray is doing that weekend Ice fishing in New Hampshire. I hope its like 90 in Florida and -20 in New Hampshire. Arent I nice LOL The funniest part of all this is one week later school vacation week the tickets were 400 more than what I paid. Yeah I'm pulling Michael out of kindergarden for 3 days but I saved 800 by going a week before vacation and I bet there will be alot less people down there. When I called my mom and told her how much the tickets were she asked me to get tickets for her and Roland to go too. Her sister the one I drove the stuff down for last year is there so we are all flying on the same flights and when we get there we are getting our own rental cars and splitting up I'm staying with Kat and them with Deloris we will meet back up Sunday night and get back on the same planes on Monday should be a great time. I cant wait and neither can Michael he wants a calender so he can mark down the days till we go he is so funny.
Oh and Michael is feeling better kids pepto and tylenol are my new heros.
I'm tired now and am heading to bed have a great night.

Who is your Harry Potter love match? (for girls)
brought to you by Quizilla

I got this from not your typical southern belle its kinda funny she had this on today as we JUST got home from watching the harry potter movie. I liked it but I think the first couple moved along a little faster Michael is the one that really wanted to see it and he got bored for a little while.But like Ray said it sets you up for a good next movie and since I have read all the books I have to agree with him.
I have some great new too I'll come back and share after supper. Later
