I am in dreamland….

I’m listening to Josh Groban’s X-mas CD – Noel…ahhh…

It’s been a while since I’ve been here, do you miss me??? THANK YOU SO, SO, SO MUCH for all of the wonderful comments and emails. It really warms my heart to read these things. I am starting to feel better from my surgery. I’m a bit light headed, and weak, but that could be from the cold I’ve now contracted.

My family is still ill (are you shocked… I am, seriously, it’s been a whole month I think). Both kids have new colds, DD1 still has ear infections, and has started a second antibiotic. DD2 now has roseola – which is one of those childhood illnesses that we all get – basically she’s got a very yucky rash that doesn’t seem to be bothering her too much. Yuck, yuck yuck!

I do have to say that my family is so fortunate to be surrounded by friends and family. They have been such a help to us this past week. My mom stayed the night with my kids while I was in the hospital, she took a day (or maybe 2) off to help DH. My sister came in the middle of the night last week to stay with my kids while I was sent back to emergency. My MIL has also helped with kids too. I have had lots of friends send over meals for us too. I don’t know how we would have survived with out them, so Thank you to each of them also.

I know I sound like I’m accepting an Emmy here, but I also want to say just how grateful I am to my DH. He has been so sick with this cold he’s had ( gone to the dr. 2x’s convinced its turned to something much more serious), he’s barely sleeping because each time he lays down he has a terrible coughing fit – and he’s had to take care of all of us. He’s been a real trooper – trying to figure out how and when for the kids, keeping track of meds & Dr. appts, wiping noses, cleaning house, doing laundry. It’s really been all on him this past week. So DH, if you are reading this, I just want to say a big thank you to you. I really appreciate everything you’ve done, and will not even complain about you doing laundry (because I have clean underwear & jammies). THANK YOU!

And now that I have turned in to a big, weepy sap (did you know I’m a big sap????), I’ll give you all a list of wonderful freebies. Be sure to leave some lovin for these designers, they work so hard to make these things for you.

For goodness sake, I was about to call in the troops! Been missing you, and worrying that your family and you might be having complications. I will have to do a voodoo dance to get you all well for Christmas. Glad to see you are still with us. (smile) Patty
