Our family has been struggling with being sick since last Friday! Tys was first to get sick then me and the boys. The girls have actually managed to stay fairly healthy. Then throughout the week we(meaning me and the boys or...ummm...men in my life) have been feeling a little poorly, but yesterday I was doing better. Right before bed I started feeling a little achy. I woke up at 3 a.m. and couldn't get back to bed. I felt like I had been hit by a mack truck! now I have a tissue permanently attached to my nose and a slight dull headache that even the best of meds couldn't and haven't helped! So, that is my woe is me moment! lol Tys left a list of things the kids had to do since I was still in bed and feeling poorly, this morning and they actually cleaned and Chad was in charge and did a good job. He had a bit too much drill sergeant going on, but hey, he got the job done! :)
Next Tuesday I start my second round of school! Yay! I am pretty excited! I am taking the Interior Design 2 and then on Wednesdays my sister will watch the kids while I go to my History of Furniture class. Tys will be at Mutual during that time. baseball registration is coming up, then I will have one more 10 week stint of my classes and will go back for next winter to finish up my Architecture classes. Then I will be able to go to the board and defend my work to get my Certificate...kind of a nerve wracking thought! :) Then our summer will only consist of 2 short vacations. One at Myrtle Beach and then to my family reunion in July in the nice Georgian "die from heat stroke" weather. :)
SO, those are the plans for now. We will see how smoothly they go. When life gets busier you never know what plans will change and someone upstairs always seems to have His own plans too.
Christmas was great and relaxing! We had our dinner at 4 p.m. so that made it less hectic. The kids enjoyed everything that Santa brought and I think this is the last year that my oldest will believe. it's kind of sad, but I guess we all learn at one point or another. Let's just say that some people's kids just like to talk about it when they learn. Here are some pics of our Christmas!
