Observations from my children

While I have actually been eating healthier and exercising lately, I didn't think my kids had really noticed until I read over Aaron Job's spelling sentences recently.

*Note sentence #5
I'm afraid in this case that words speak louder than actions. Oh well, I'm a champ in my kid's eyes (enter Rocky music). Well, I guess not really a champ, he didn't say that I WON the marathon, but maybe I at least FINISHED it, since I am a marathon "runner." I'll take that.

I just received the coolest surprise EVER from my dear sweet hubby! Go here to check it out.

Anyone want to go to Chicago with me?

Sickness!! That's about the latest to report around here! One with double ear infections and pneumonia, and all three others with on and off fevers and nasty coughs. It sounds like a Dr.'s office waiting room around here! The blessing in all this is that we're not all throwing up. I'll take fevers and coughs any day over throwing up! So this is a good sort of sickness to have if there is any. We're all just lying around taking it easy, and the baby is all snugly and cuddly when she doesn't feel good. Sweet!

I was actually able to read an entire book! I usually have about three or four books going at one time and it takes me a year to finish them all, but I started this one while Aaron was home on Christmas break, and just finished it since we've all been vegging with sickness. It was the first book of the Shiloh Legacy series by Bodie Thoene, In My Father's House-so good!. It's a historical fiction. I couldn't put it down and now I'm ready to start the other two, but they may have to wait awhile.

Also, I just taught myself to knit! It's really a lot of fun once I got the hang of it. I hadn't realized an added benefit too, is that if I ever sit down to watch t.v., I want to knit instead of eat! My first project will be a scarf for Abby, since she won't mind too much what it looks like! Maybe I'll put up a picture of it when I'm done. We'll see what it looks like first! I got a sewing machine for Christmas too, so lately I've been feeling very domestic!

Other than me going grocery shopping at 10:00 last night (woo-hoo!) that's about all the excitement around here. Maybe there will be something more interesting next time!
