Today I saw my doctor for a follow up on my carpel tunnel. He suggested an injection in the wrist to help with the pain. Okay, I say, even though I'm a big baby were needles and pain is concerned. I did ask if it would hurt and he said yes it would burn. Great...
So he comes in and does the injection and instantly it burns and my entire hand goes numb! Not normal according to him. But once the lidocaine in the injection wore off all I was left with was intense wrist pain! So thats where I am at now. Trying to type this so no one thinks I fell off the planet.
Be back when I can type again!

Spring Break

Its weird to be thinking about Spring Break already! But I'm ready. This year we are hoping to have a true adventure! 18+ hours in the car with a 10 year old? Yup adventurers we are!
So where are we hopefully headed? The great state of Florida.  Hayley and Scott have never been so we are hoping to go visit with a good friend of mine and her fiance. Hopefully we can save enough money to go to Sea World or Disney...That would be awesome!!!
I'm so excited!!!!

The Flu...

And bronchitis. That's whats going around my house right now. I have so far been able to stay health but I'm not going to hold my breath! Everyone else has been miserable..some going on 2 weeks now. This is NOT fun! I hope everyone gets better soon! It's no fun taking care of a bunch of sickies...
Hayleys been on antibotics for 3 days now and she is starting to feel a little better but her cough is still pretty nasty. Scott on the other hand he just had the flu. Not really much coughing though. He's been sick for 2 weeks now and is still miserable. =(
I hope everyone out there is staying healthy!

Just a little note...

Happy New Year (again!) Everyone! I hope this post finds you not too hungover and happy to embrace the new year. I am ready. I need this new year. I need things to look up and be better. I have posted my list of resolutions but I have thought of a few more...

  • Get Hayley unspoiled a little bit. This girl will do anything to get out of doing chores. Sunday nite she was suppose to take care of her clean laundry...fold and put away. It took me TWO hours to finally convince her to do it and what does she do?? Just shoves it in the drawers. So I told her..If thats what you want to do fine but that it is her fault if her clothes are wrinkled. 
  • Get into a better routine. Not just in the morning but for all day. I find my self with tons of free time and that isn't any fun!!!
So that is my added resolutions!
Talk to everyone soon!!!

Hello 2013....

I'm ready to start the new year! 2012 was a tough year, a happy year, but still tough. Losing one of my best friends and then my miscarriage, followed by losing my dad...yeah tough. So I've given it a lot of thought...
What you ask? Why my New Years Resolutions. And this year I am going to do way better at sticking to them.  So here they are in no particular order...

  • quit smoking!
  • start attending a church..I actually have one in mind
  • lose more weight...I am finally back on the right path and am hopeful this will continue
  • read my Bible again
  • Have family photos taken
  • Hopefully get pregnant!
  • Be a better wife, mother, daughter and in general better person
There it is..all in black and white. And of course I intend to blog more. Its good for me to get stuff out...

 Enjoy the first day of 2013 and I will blog again when we get home. I typed this post in advance and hopefully it will publish when I want it too!
