Meet Me On Monday

Blogging  is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read  and yet most of the time we find ourselves sitting and wondering, "who is  this person!?"  I know them...but yet I don't know them!  I want  to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought I would join Java at Never Growing Old for Meet Me on Monday for a great  way for all of us to "meet" each other!

1. What are you wearing right now?
A pink hoodie from Door County and brown yoga pants.
Yep, I'm all about style.....not.

2. Do you have any freckles?
Do age spots count? If not, then nope, no freckles.
 Right along with these huge smile lines...

3. What is your favorite Lifesaver flavor?
I pick through the pack just for the red ones.
What's up with those coconut ones? And lime? Yuck! 

4. What is the last movie you saw in a theater?
I honestly don't know.  We usually wait until they come out on DVD and rent them for a dollar at the Redbox. Movie theaters are totally outrageous with their prices.

5. Would you rather live without tv or without music?
That's a tough one. I listen to music all day long but there are a few shows that I like to watch at night. I'm opting out on this question.

Snow, Sun, and More Snow

A couple weeks ago I was hanging out at home while Wisconsin's winter was raging outside. This is actually a picture of my kitchen that's cold.

Since Brian had been gone since the 2nd of January, we decided it was time for me to take a little time away from the bitter cold and snow of home.

So I booked a plane ticket and flew off to Atlanta. The weather was gorgeous. The temps were in the 60s which was about 80 degrees warmer than when I left home. That's just crazy to me.

From there we went to NC and it was in the 70s there! Oh my goodness I was lovin' it. I even saw flowers!

After we were all loaded we headed with our load back towards home.

We had heard of the big storm coming and our hopes were high that we were going to get home without running into it.

No luck.

After we left Milwaukee the weather just got worse and worse. We considered stopping for the night but we just wanted to go home. The ice started to build up on the windshield and the mirrors. The closer to home we got the more snow there was. The interstate turned into basically one lane as the left lane was totally snow covered and not plowed.

As we were putting along a car started coming up our side to pass. Brian saw him in the mirror and said, "Oh no, they are going to try to pass us!"

The guy got next to our trailer, lost control, spun around in circles and rolled 3-4 times into the median. We couldn't stop with the big truck as it was too slick to just hit the brakes. And of course you don't just stop those big things like you can a car. Brian called 911 right away. It was pretty scary and I sure hope whoever was in that car is okay.

We saw many many cars in the ditch and a few of them were on their roofs. I don't understand why some people think they can drive in these conditions as if the roads were clear.

After a long drive we were finally home. Thanks be to God..........

Happy Valentines Day everyone. I am very thankful to be spending it with my sweetie. Thanks to an airline ticket to Georgia. The weather here is about 70 degrees warmer than from when I left home two days ago. That's crazy!

Now on to this little peanut. Four days ago I went with Tracy to the ER for Haddie. She had croup, again. She got her meds and we were sent home.

Yesterday she was getting worse so back to the ER they went. It turned out she has RSV and the start of pneumonia. Poor little thing.

Now Haddie is five months old but only weighs just over 12 pounds. Just a tiny little peanut.

They gave her a nebulizer (not sure how to spell that) treatment and some antibiotics for the pneumonia and sent her home! Yikes. That scared me a little. She had to do another treatment before bed and again in the middle of the night.

They had to take turns watching her throughout the night for any changes in her breathing, color or if her temp goes back up.

I haven't talked to them yet this morning to see how their night went. They have an appointment this morning to take both girls in. Since RSV is so contagious they have to have Felicity checked. She has been coughing a lot this weekend too.

And of course since we all spend almost every day together this little guy is running a fever and coughing too. He is headed in to the doctor this morning too.

Please send prayers their way today....

Monkey See....Monkey Do

This is what we found in my living room the other day......

I almost didn't post this but she is so innocent and doesn't think there is anything weird or wrong with it. It's just one of those things that happens when you have a little sister.

(She will probably not be so happy I posted this when she gets older.....
shhhhh don't tell her)

I Want It Back

I know I have been talking about the cold and snow a lot here lately. That's because that's all that has been going on for the last month!

This is my front porch swing right now....doesn't look very inviting does it?

I want this back....

And this happy little face playing in the sand table.

And flowers! Oh how I miss flowers.
