I keep avoiding blogging because I haven't written for so long, and have lots that I want to cover. But since I've been feeling better I haven't had time to just sit down and post a bunch. So I figure I should check in and at least tell everyone we're alive :)
My mom ended up coming to stay with us last week to help us get back on our feet. I just felt so run down and crummy - and so did the rest of the family. Hunter wasn't sleeping (I mean like 2 hours a night!) He only wanted to be held and felt really sick. Gabe started feeling miserable too and would just SCREAM and SCREAM, "My nose and tears" at even the slightest feeling of his nose running. He had a really hard time figuring out how to blow his nose and that didn't help things too much.
It was nice to have my mom here to help with the boys, help with meals, watch the boys while Cory and went out a couple of times (the movie Vantage Point is really good!) and be around so I could rest some in the mornings. I also love having her around to chat with. My mom is really probably my best friend, and it makes me sad that we don't live closer. In a dream world we'd live on the same street as most of our family so we could enjoy each other's company whenever we wanted instead of quick trips occasionaly. It would be so great to have Grandma's around to help with the boys when we needed - and the boys would love it too. People who have family that live close to them have no idea what it's like to be so far from family....it stinks.
Anyway, we're feeling mostly better. I wouldn't say we're 100% - and Hunter is still having sleeping issues - but we're back in the land of the living and hopefully will be back to 100% soon.
For now I'm just running around trying to get stuff done for our Young Women's New Beginnings Program on Wednesday. I will be SO glad when everything is finished for that. Thursday morning will be a great time at our house - I'm planning a bubble bath with an ice cold Diet DP and a deep breath.
And lastly - a quick Gabe funny. Yesterday we were getting ready for church and I said, "Gabe - guess where we're going today?" He answered, "Hmmm...I don't member (remember)". I told him we were going to church and going to nursery. He got all excited and then he said, "Yeah, and then I'm going to go on a mission, and then I'm going to marry a princess!" I'm glad he has it figured out - and that he knows a mission needs to happen BEFORE he gets married :)
A few nights before he was watching the movie "Anastasia" with my mom. He told her he was going to marry a princess - Princess "Orlene" (he was trying to say Earlene - my mom's name). So cute.
