to update your blog rolls. I am moving this blog to a free one. I have decided to move over to Wordpress.com as it does not cost anything for a basic blog. This blog is only $45  year but free is even better.

Here is where the blog will be.

I have already moved all my old post and comments but I will be working on the format and lists and all the other fun stuff that makes a blog your own. .

Come on over and visit and don't forget to update your blogrolls. As soon as this one expires, I will not be renewing it. But I think I have until next January.




Yes, I like Straw Hats

Bought this beauty yesterday at Bass Pro Shop. You can buy it online direct from the seller HERE. It gets really sunny here in Texas and I don't like the heat rash that sun screen causes on my face.



Do I have an accent?

2008-03-23T21:10:15-05:00

Tim' s Mom asked in a comment to a previous post if I have an accent. That is a great question and anyone who knows me IRL (in real life) know that the answer to this is a resounding YES....

My pastor's wife sent me this. See if you can fly the plane to the right places. I think I have been fired as navigator after misreading the map and taking 3 hours to get through Houston traffic yesterday. http://www.lufthansa-usa.com/useugame2007/html/play.html

My usually healthy kids are sick

I am grateful that I normally have healthy children. We have the usual colds, scrapes, bumps and bruises but nothing too serious. Wednesday morning I was awakened by a sick Sundance who needed Mommy in the wee hours of the morning. He was pretty much out of it all day, sleeping after a four hour bout with the porcelain throne. His fever spiked in the afternoon and he was unable to eat much of anything until Thursday night when he (image) scarfed down fish sticks, rice and mixed veggies. He was back to his old self in about 24 hours.

I thought we were out of the woods until Honey and I sat down to watch The Great Escape on AMC.  I heard a sound from the bedroom where Hopalong was sleeping. I went in the room to find  him  in the bathroom. Being only 4, he had not made it to the throne and was on the floor getting sick on a stack of dirty towels I was getting ready to wash.  These towel will  now reside in the green bin behind the house.

Tonight I am up with Hopalong. He can not make it to the trash can so I have been holding his head. It has now been almost 4 hours and I think we are past the top part and will now move to the bottom. I am well armed with a new package of Pull-Ups though he can usually make it to the bathroom. It is 2:15 am and I think I will wait until 3 to go to sleep just to make sure he is not going to need me. I spoke too soon, thanks heavens for plastic trash cans!!

I am thankful and grateful to the Lord for my healthy children.  In 24 hours,  Hopalong will be back to his old self and pestering his brothers, playing with cars and getting a cuddle from his mommy.  I also know that tonight somewhere in my town there is a mother who is holding a sick child who will not be getting better. I don't know her name but I am praying for her and her child that the Lord will hold them in His strong arms tonight and each night that follows.

Now, if I can just keep Butch from getting this but I fully expect to see him in my arms sometime tonight or early in the morning and for the third time this week I will lovingly hold a small head as he bows at the porcelain throne and thank  God for my three darling boys.


UPDATE Monday night:The next to get sick was not Butch but Honey followed a few hours later by me. Butch did not get sick until Sunday night. Now we have all had it, I hope we are done for the season. The parents are having a harder time recovering than the children who are back in full swing.  Honey and I have slept on the couch, sipped water and waited for this to pass. Hopefully by tomorrow we will all be back to our old selves. Honey and I have lost 17 pounds between us. I guess I'll take that as a bonus!!
