For years I have always told my sister that she should be CJ's mother. He acts so much like her. He has her sense of humor... So I posted this picture on My Space and she saw it.
Doesn't that just crack you up... They are so silly!

Lets just say that it was a HUGE Blessing in our lives :)

So my friend Liz decided to post her Christmas Tree and some special ornaments and I thought I would do the same. My tree is so loaded with memories of different things during our life. I would love to have two trees one of memories and one that was real pretty.
This is my Christmas Tree
Cj's first deer
I LOVE Snowman and this is one of my favorites
Of course we have to have crafty school pictures I think this was second grade for Brittany
CJ's First Christmas-Hard to believe he is going to be 19 this year
Preschool ornament of Cj he was 5
Brittany's First Christmas. Its not as tarnished as it looks

So today Brittany treated me to Four Christmas's movie with Reese Whitherspoon. It was funny. I laughed through almost the whole thing. It does have a few sexual comments in it though that I could have done with out. Brittany and her friends wanted to see Bolt.
I began the process of putting up my Christmas tree its been very difficult. One is my attitude and two is my back pain.
So Thanksgiving was nice this week....Loud at my mil's but my Dallas Cowboys won :) Sometimes I miss not having the two families to eat at but then again I eat so much at one I can't imagine doing it at two.
Brittany only had school 2 days this week and its been nice having her home. I miss her. But we are starting to get a teenage attitude and I am not very happy about it. We have always been so close and lately we are just butting heads :(

Oh yes both of my kids broke up with their Girlfriend/Boyfriend on Monday...yes both on the same day. So I have some sad kids. Of course I fixed Chocolate for Brittany that seemed to help.
Just about done reading my Karen Kingsbury...Sunset.. The last of that Series.. Sniff I am sure going to miss this series but I hear there is more coming. WOO HOO

So Brittany is still not feeling the best and I have an appointment schedule next week with the pediatrician. We are doing a fasting appointment cause I feel she has blood sugar problems.
I go to the orthopedic on Monday for my wrist.
Oh I did do something important this week...I got caught up on the business paperwork for our taxes. That is a true Miracle. I let it pile up in a bag and then complain cause it takes me all day to get it done...lol

I tell her all the time she can stay home and she never wants to.
I did get to go to my High School Reunion...I went for a couple of hours and Cecil stayed here with Brittany. She was too sick to just leave with her brother.
I WON a door prize..that was a miracle. $25 to a Spa.. Wonder how much I gotta add to it. :)

They aren't sure what is wrong with her. Her white blood cell count was sky high so they put her on some more medicine.
Did I mention tonight is my High School Reunion and I don't think I am going to be able to go :(
I was in tears today watching her get sick and thinking.. This is probably just a virus and it will be gone in a day or two... While a couple of kids that I follow on Caring Bridge Suffer like this all the time. One little girl Brittany died a couple days ago and another little Girl Sarah is on death's door :(

About a month ago my husband got pulled in the Bucket Truck and almost got a ticket for not having a CDL.. It would have been $10,000 if the lady had given it to us... You might be wondering why he was driving without one.. Well he thought he had it.. About 10 or 11 years Cecil got a DUI...and he lost his license for a year... he had a restrictive one..well when he got his regular drivers license back he thought he had his CDL... Well he didn't...
So after he got pulled he went through the process and had a learner's permit.. And because I use to drive the school bus he could drive and I ride with him.
So every morning its been hard.. I ride with him to the job.. Cj brings me home...Cj comes back and gets me and I ride home with hubby in the truck.. And sometimes during the day I have to go out where he is working so he can dump it.. Its been a LONG month...
But he passed and now I don't have to do it anymore.. WOOO HOOOOO
Now maybe God will send that Job Interview my way since he knows I am available to work :)

Instead of complaining about things I will now just Pray.. Cause God does answer prayers that things will be taken care of.
My husband is a small business owner..We are suffereing bad because of the economy and now I pray it doesn't get worse.
I do not have Health Insurance...what is going to happen to me...
Join me in praying that God and Obama can turn this nation around so that we can continue to have good productive lives

Please if you are due for a Mammo go have it done...Finding things early WILL save your life. Brittany's dance teacher had Breast Cancer last year and they found it in the beginning stages and she is doing great. And she isn't 40 where they recommend you start the Mammo's I have been going since I was 35....

Of course when we get home I will post some pictures!

Tomorrow -Friday at 9:30 I have a job interview for a Receptionist position.. I am bit nervous about that too cause its a business with 9 Phone lines.. Not sure if all that is Incoming or not.... This is my first Interview after sending 24 Resumes/Applications.
And..... I am cleaning... Brittany's 16th Birthday Party is on Sunday. So today I am doing all my house cleaning. Friday Morning I have that Job interview and want to do my grocery shopping and then Friday Night and Saturday we are heading to Great Wolf Lodge to enjoy the Indoor Water Park. We have never been there and wanted to do something special for Brittany's Birthday Weekend.

Yesterday I went to a baby shower.. I tell you sometimes I wish I could have another baby just so I can play with all the new things they have out there..
I LOVE the thing that you put in the grocery cart that covers the handles and the whole seat..I remember working so hard to keep my kids for chewing on that nasty cart...
Another thing I have seen that I love is that wedge thing that holds your baby on its side..Back when I had kids we had to brace them with rolled up blankets...lol
I LOVE LOVE to shop for clothes too...Now I can afford the clothes.. Back when I had kids I barely could afford to dress my kids.. But man you can get some cute stuff for Good prices..
But instead of having a baby.. I will wait to spoil my grandkids to be one day... :)

But thanks to God....He provided a way for me to go to our local clinic and just pay $10! Praise the Lord!
I am so nervous though. You would think after having 2 kids this wouldn't bother me at all but it does.
Cj is healing very nicely from his strep throat. Brittany is fighting a MAJOR cold :(
Tuesday, October 14, 2008
Well about 1:30 Brittany text me.. Mom I really don't feel well (female problem) can you come get me.. I said of course... Wouldn't be a problem if my almost 16 year old child could take a Tylenol...So I get her at 2...she only missed 20 minutes of school... As I am getting ready to leave her school. Cj calls.. Mom can you bring me some more medicine to work?.. My throat is killing me... So being the good mom that I am.. I went to the job site and took him some medicine and looked in his throat.. Mind you I looked in it that morning and thought he looked okay looked in the afternoon and he was covered in white patches.. I said UGH CJ I think you have Strep Throat.. Then Cecil starts freaking out cause the DUMMY drank after him!...
So about 7 last night I took CJ to Med Express and sure enough he has Strep.. We moms alway know what is wrong with our kids..
I did learn a lesson yesterday I know the best time for getting a prescription filled at the drug store.. GO 30 minutes before they close.. Boy are they fast...lol

Normally I wait and then the days before the party I have worked so hard that I am exhausted!
