I hate Chicken broth, ugh.

   I have been super sick lately. The docs are annoying and cant seem to find out what is wrong. I went in with some severe abdominal pain on Thursday and they rushed me to a CT scan to rule out appendicitis or gall bladder. They said I was fine that it is probably an ulcer and gave me 3 days of antibiotics. Seriously, 3 days thats not enough to really do anything.  I feel like I may die, just kidding, but its not too fun. I am living of chicken broth and water and after 2 days Im STARVING I want a freaking sandwich!!! They gave me antibiotics that make me feel terrible and on top of everything, Mark just left for Gatlinburg with the youth. He wont be back until Tues. so I get to feel bad and hang out with Eason.
Hopefully, we can get this fixed before I start back to school in a little over a week. Im so ready/nervous. I can't wait to get out of the house and meet new people and just figure out what all I get to do this semester.  I also get to meet and hang out with Eason's new sitter, she seems AMAZING. Mark knows her and her husband but I have never met them. I hope I feel better next week so I can enjoy spending time with another woman/mother. She has 2 children and E will be right in the middle of them. I have tried to explain to E that he will get to go play with Noah, her 3 yr old, he seems excited but Im not sure how he will feel when Im not there playing with them. He will probably LOVE IT!
  I have a mandatory meeting next Thurs. to explain all the things we will be doing and the stress we will be having during our 2 years in Nursing school. They said our support group (Mark)  needs to be there. Im not a morning person and its at 830 in the morning. I got to get used to waking up before 8 for the next week. Or I will be late my whole first week of school.
AAHH.. Got to go Eason just brought an entire jug of milk into the bedroom to ask for chocolate milk. I hope it wasnt full when he climbed and got it out of the fridge because its not now :)

I need some sleep

OH. wow what a wonderful Christmas weekend! I got so many things that I wasn't expecting. I got a new kindle fire, its totally awesome. Im completely computer illiterate and so it is taking me a while to get used to it. I also got ALL of my school books, I know that makes me a nerd but if you have ever been to nursing school you know your first semester is like $600 worth of books. I was so excited that we didnt have to find the money to pay for all 15 books. YEAH I KNOW RIGHT LOTS OF BOOKS.

Anyway, Eason had a GREAT Christmas. He had so much fun that he completely freaked out when we took the Christmas tree down today. He kept saying "No my kissmus". He got a lightning Mcqueen power wheels car and has driven it the past 3 days til it ran out of battery and we had to charge it again. Uncle Bob also got him a buzz lightgear suit and he wont take it off, it's a bit embarrassing because we have to go to the grocery store today and he will probably have it on :) But now I am completely Exhausted... I have weigh-ins tonight and hopefully I did alright over Christmas week. I hope everyone had a great Christmas.

Good Morning, It's Christmas Eve!

This morning has been a morning that only pictures can describe SO...

I knew he was being too quiet in his room. I have been trying to scrub ink pen off the wall for an hour and it isn't working, looks like we will have to re-paint.

When we found him he went straight to time-out, but Mark and I couldn't do anything but laugh. So we sat him down and asked "Do you know why you got in trouble" E said "I colored the wall" I said "are you supposed to color the wall" and E said "But I drew a horse."
After that I lost it, I fell in the floor laughing, I can't even be mad he had drawn me a horse.
A Beautiful Picture for Christmas! Merry Christmas Mommy!

Merry Christmas Eve Everyone!

Today has been one of those days where nothing works out like you want it to. I got up early to go running, my phone was dead and I take it running to track my run. So I plugged it in and waited about 20 minutes so it could charge. When it finally charged, I realized my IPOD was dead. UGH... no one can go run without that. So I decided that apparently I wasn't supposed to run today.
After that the day just seemed to drag on-and-on.

I try to do memorable things with my son at least once a week so today I wanted to try to make sugar cookies that he could cut out into shapes. If anyone has ever tried to do that with a 2 year old, you already know I am crazy for even trying. But I tried.... He was fine while stamping out the cookies. But, He completely flipped out when I tried to put the cookies in the oven, he threw a FIT. Screamed at me. NO NO MOMMA NO! I felt so bad because after they were cooked he didn't want anything to do with these cookies. I felt like I took the joy out if for him. I know I enjoyed rolling cookies with him but I don't think he understood the whole aspect of it. I was so afraid that I ruined his day because I cooked his cookies, but after about 10 minutes of ignoring me it was over. He asked me to play with him in his room and it was like the cookie incident never happened. He forgave me for cooking his creation.

How come as adults we can't get over things that fast? I wish I could just forget a lot of things I have done or forgive some people that did something wrong to me. I just can't... I love how you can look at something like baking cookies and see how wonderful God is, He forgave me for everything I have done and everything I will do in the future, as soon as it happens. I am so thankful to be forgiven by the one that truly matters.
