Silly girl and total randomness-es-es

After my last post, the sickness decided to put my stomach through another round. Just so I won't jinx myself, I am not going to say that it is gone, but I am going to really, really hope that it is.

I have so many things on the to do list in my head, that I don't even know where to begin. Maybe if I wrote them on paper it would be easier. Besides, you can't beat that feeling of accomplishment when you get to actually cross something off when you have completed it.

I know the first place I have to start is Evan's closet. The other day I pulled a shirt out for him to wear that I hadn't seen him wear in a long time. It looked small to me so I looked at the tag. Size 4. Maybe if I didn't have clothes in his closet that would fit his sister, he would be able to find clothes that did fit him.

I have a free book on account at Shutterfly that is going to expire in four days. I really need to work on it because "Hey - free book", but I just have no desire right now. Plus if I sit for a long time, my stomach starts to hurt a little so I much prefer laying on the couch under a blanket and catching up on all things iCarly with the kids.

I was rather proud of myself this morning for getting all the bills paid, the dishwasher unloaded and reloaded and for getting the trash gathered and to the curb by nine.

I think I will actually be able to make dinner for my kids tonight. On Sunday when I was feeling good, I let the kids pick the dinners we would have this week. Spencer chose pesto tortellini for Monday - which he had to make since I was writhing on the couch in pain. Yesterday was supposed to be meatloaf, but even though I felt a little better I couldn't stomach the mixing of the meats (I use ground beef and ground turkey in our meatloaf), so we decided on grilled cheese and tomato soup. Tonight we are having Evan's choice of Pierogis - or "Goodness" - as I told him they were called and that is how he asked for them.

I finally finished making thank you notes to send out for Hailey's birthday gifts. I have to write them still, which I hope to do later. Sadly, I still have not managed to send out thank yous for the gifts we received at our Christmas party (which was over a month ago!). I really need to dig deep and find some motivation. I know I will feel so much better and lighter once I get this stuff out of my head.

Speaking of cute is my little shower capped princess? She wanted to take a shower with me the other morning and I just had no patience to fight the hair fight again. Not the washing of the hair, but the combing of the hair afterwards. So we capped her up. She was so funny. Her hair is getting longer and I think that it is starting to look kind of cute like that. I am also thinking of letting her bangs grow out for a change. Her bangs never lay right because of her natural curl. Longer hair means more surface to have to brush though, so I am not sure how it will go over or how long it will last. Keep us both in your prayers.

What a riot!!! --- Hailey in her shower cap that is, not your stomach bug which your whole family had except Hais. She looks so cute in it -- the cap.
PS. Get well soon --- hope you are feeling better, Jenna!!
