Life 2011: Week 19




Monday, May 2, 2011


The kids skipped school today due to some colds. They had a lazy day in front of the television and puzzles.

I saw these tiny flowers by the tree in my yard today. I realize that they are probably weeds, but there were hundreds of them all over and I thought they just looked pretty. I am starting to hate all the hot weather and not sure how I am going to survive this summer - but at least there are pretty flowers about!

Those familiar with my blog, know that I do a thing called High/Low every Friday. On the movie, "Story of Us", the family plays a game called High/Low. When Joey and I saw this movie, we knew we wanted to incorporate this into our family. So we often play High/Low at the end of the day with JJ and Beth. To summarize up our days, we each tell the best thing about our day (high) and the worst thing about our day (low). I love these little conversations that we have with them and its always awesome when Beth says, "I don't have a low."

Our wonderful friends, The Price's invited us to a great Cinco de Mayo neighborhood party tonight with lots of Mexican food and visiting. It was excellent weather and it was nice to visit and be together. The kids even got to try breaking a neat homemade pinata. It took all the kids and even some older ones to finally get it to burst, but it was a lot of fun!

I am LOVING audiobooks lately. I am a reader, but lately I have struggled to find the time to actually sit down and read a book. But audiobooks have come to my rescue. On my driving around and errands and housework and even designing, I have been able to "read" books and it is awesome to have that distraction when I am doing jobs that I am not fond of. Plus I have been able to listen to some great books. I used to hate audiobooks and just couldn't seem to get anything from them, but I love them now. This week's book has been The Help and it is a fantastic book and the narrators for this book really brought the story to my heart!

The kids have struggled with colds all week, but today was the worst. Beth had to miss her last soccer game and we ended up having to take JJ to the Instacare. JJ doesn't always communicate things to us clearly, so when he says something hurts, we take it pretty seriously. He had a bad side ache that we couldn't seem to get rid of so we took him into the doctor. He was in pretty bad pain and couldn't even walk. He had x-rays and blood taken and he was pretty darn miserable. He had a lot of congestion so they thought it might be pneumonia, but thank goodness it wasn't. Turns out that he was a bit constipated and so we got some medicine to help that and just took it easy the rest of the day.

We decided to recuperate the kids for one more day and we missed church. It was nice to have a casual day at home for Mother's Day. I got spoiled with lots of cards and goodies from my kids and even though they were sick, it was nice to just be together at home.


And here is my weekly layout:

Coming soon!
