Bye-Bye Holiday's

Hi!  It's been awhile.  I don't want to bore you with story after story so I'm going with bullets today.
  • I did very last minute Christmas shopping this year... hated that
  • Missed 2 trail runs ... hated that too
  • Good times with good friends meeting the newest perfect baby of the bunch (Ang, send me that pic)

  • Christmas = GOOD
  • Family = Good - It's been years since my family (my side of the blood) has all gotten along and everyone feels completely comfortable around one another.  No one is being overly sensitive and getting their feelings hurt and everyone seems to be on the same page.  This is truly an answer to a long repeated prayer.  We finally feel like a happy family.  And, we are gaining a sister, well, we already consider her a sister, but welcome to the family name, Anna!  Love you guys.  Good job, Billy Sue! (You know I love you!) and I'm so, so proud of you. 
  • Christmas sleepover complete with momma's biscuits and gravy in the morning.
  • Eating = GOOD (as in taste and quantity)
  • Working out = bad!  Took a break for my break.  It only made sense and it is helping me get back some motivation to pick it up again.  Only I'm waiting to start on a Monday because that is how my schedule works.  However, you will see that I moved around my heavy furniture multiple times and went sledding which consists of pulling the boys back up the hill in the sled.  I got my workout in that day.   
  • Cleaned out toys - donated mucho boxes-o.

  • Allergy stuff - Really bad.  I can't remember the last time I could breathe 100% through my nose.  I called the specialist this morning and I will be doing whatever it takes to be normal.  I wake up so tired and mostly cranky.  I know this is the culprit.
  • Our shower has been leaking.  Dale demolished it.  Black mold all over the place.  I think this has a lot to do with my above issues as well.  We (Dale) are trying to get it fixed.  What a pain.  Home ownership can be so fun.  Our house is a little over 6 years old and I think we've had just about every pipe leak.  I won't mention the plumber. 

  • Went sledding.
  • Got irately mad at Dale for rearranging the stuff in the entertainment center as I was deep cleaning the house.  I mean irate.  No, it really wasn't that big of a deal but after a day of cleaning like mad it was like I had another area to deal with and I was hungry.  I guess I should have just said I was hungry.
  • Date night with the hubs.  Shopped end of season sales $$$.  Saw This is 40.  Laughed a lot and then ate ice cream.
  • Took Christmas down around the house.

  • 23 month old drank a bottle of Children's Tylenol.  4 hour ER evaluation and a completely traumatic attempt to take his blood multiple times.  All is fine and it turns out he barely ingested any.

  • A renewed appreciation that this has been the scariest parenting moment I've had so far and it is minor in comparison of what other parents out there deal with.  We are very blessed and now have an extremely high barely unreachable by me medicine cabinet. 
  • Hair cuts, hugs, kisses, cuddles, a lot of late night movie watching with or without eyes open and eating popcorn.
  • Moved furniture 3,459,478 times

  • New Years, meh, just another day.  Me and Wyatt were the only ones awake for the ball drop.  Wyatt had extensive questions about what the heck the ball was in the first place.  I don't set resolutions.  Do you?
Good-bye holidays, welcome back reality! 


  1. the ups and the downs...such is life!

    love that one of the two boys hugging. so cute.

  2. Ah boys! They keep life interesting.

    My middle son downed half a bottle of Ibuprofen; youngest: decided to give a block of mouse poison a try; and my oldest: Windex, bottle of very expensive face lotion and 63 cents (2 quarters, 1 dime and 3 pennies). I think poison control had us on a list for about 6 years!
