What an awful mess.....

What did I do, you may ask....well...nothing, really. It all started when I was on my get-a-way...the compressor on the fridge went out and no one noticed, so I came home to a wet sloppy mess in the freezer and a warm stinky mess in the fridge. After I got all the food cleared out, I thought I would take advantage of a now empty fridge and give it a supper good cleaning. I even used q-tips like Kate! LOL! I have to say they worked very well. Anyways, I was washing one of the glass shelves in the sink and it exploded into a zillion pieces! Glass flew everywhere, from one end of the kitchen to the other and even into the family room! Thankfully I only suffered a few cuts on my hands and all the kids were out of the kitchen when it happened!
But, Amana, you should be expecting a letter soon, you have a very unhappy customer!

A night away....

This last weekend, I was free...no husband or kids in sight! I was headed down to Pacific City for my MOPS group retreat. I had music on, yes actual music that did not come from Dora or The Backyardigans! But, base bumping, trash talking, loud music! It was wonderful, 'till I started pushing 80 and remembered that my little old minivan needs new tires. Maybe I need Alice to snag me a new car next time I am out and "free". I bet the music would sound better coming out of it too!

I think I could definitely push this over 80!

Some more of this and that....

Well, I think things may be on the mend here.....I hope! The kids all are up this morning and playing, a good sign, but we will see how the day goes. I was having problems uploading pics last night...so here are the rest....

All our meds lined up and ready to go
My sick little one.

A bit of this and a bit of that....

We all have been sick as dogs around here, well at least 5 out of the 6 of us. I got 2 of them feeling better and now Kayla is sick....I am so run down from taking care of the kids and 'trying' to keep up with all the other stuff, I am still feeling awful. Poor Kami has taking the worst of it, she is still sick, the poor thing cries most of the night and sleeps off and on with us. But, right now Kade and Robert are off at softball practice and the 3 girls are asleep, so I am ignoring my very messy house to up load photos and browse the Internet....yes I know bad choice...but my laundry is already stacked sky high....I will wait for it to fall over before folding it! ;)

Kori has taken to the taste of mud
