A Week already?

Where oh where does the time go so fast? Its been a week since I posted. It is 12:26am on Saturday morning I made the mistake of falling asleep at 8pm on Friday and then getting up at 11. Ugh I am so tired of not being able to sleep right. I have been getting up at 3:30 am for weeks. Its starting to get old.

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 :(

What's happening in Sandy's World.. NOTHING.. I have spent the week hanging at the house. Applied for a few jobs.

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

Nothing going on

This week has been a long and boring kind of week. Last Saturday, Sunday and Monday Brittany was sick. Cecil was sick on Monday also. Tuesday everyone went back to work or school. I was so happy to have the house to myself. Well that didn't last long cause its been raining since Thursday. Which meant that CJ was

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

Healing Child

Brittany is on the Mend.. Thank you Lord.. She was really sick yesterday. I had never seen her that sick before.. She is still very lightheaded and just feeling blah.. She has been laying on the couch all day...watching tv and every now and then working on some homework. She wants to try to go to school tomorrow. Took her back to the doctor today and her white blood count did go down so that is a GREAT thing!

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. :)

Very Sick Child

What a day its been.. Brittany woke up at 6:30 throwing up this morning and she has been doing it all day long.. It got so bad there was blood in it. So my husband and I took her to Urgent Care and spent 4 hours there while they gave her medicine to help with the nausea and then 2 bags of fluids cause she is so dehydrated. They had a hard time finding her veins. Well because she is so out of it she has had bathroom accidents 3 times today...

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 :(

Oh Happy Days!

Well this might sound crazy.. But its a Happy day! My husband got his CDL and I do not have to go to work with him anymore...

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 :)

Presidental Election 2008

I woke up at 12:30 this morning and turned to the tv on to see that Obama is our President to be. I was disappointed. I had a hard time choosing who to vote for but made my decision.

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
