quite a week

It's been quite a week so far. Sunday our middle daughter got her first speeding ticket. She was all upset but I told her this is one of those lessons you are going to have to learn. She is going to the class they offer to get the ticket removed from your record. Just hope she doesn't get any more for quite a long time.
Am now on a blood pressure medicine.Ugh!!!! Didn't think I would have to be on something like this but oh well. Am going to have to call the dr. back today because I think this medicine is messing with me. My husband is taking it too and not bothering him at all. Not fair!!!! Hopefully, I can get on something else that won't make me feel so yuck!!!
Not too much more going on. Just busy every day. I don't have any kids this morning yet so I thought I would get some blogging done. I am in the process of making a baby blanket for the new addition. They had their girl on Saturday morning. She is soooooo tiny. I got to hold her yesterday. Only 6 lbs. 4 oz.
Hope you all have a great day!!

what kind of cereal are you?

You Are Cheerios

Like other Cheerios eaters, you want to be a responsible adult.

But you can't help but still be a kid at heart!

You try to make good decisions. You're a clean cut, conscientious person.

You're the type of person who would never skip breakfast.

Part of you thinks that breakfast is too important to miss...

But a bigger part of you knows it's too fun to miss!

Just for fun ;)

What celebrity would your pet be? I'm Jennifer Lopez! Find out at


Not much news here at our house. Just keeping busy as usual. The kids had some days off from school this week which was nice for me(extra hands to help). I had a couple of appointments this week so they helped out a lot. Today the kids are all back in school. They only have 3-4 weeks left until summer break. Can't believe how fast the school year goes.
We are anxiously awaiting the birth of a new baby. One of my daycare moms is due any time now. They are having a girl and she will probably be induced on Sunday if she doesn't have her earlier. I love to hold newborns. They are so sweet.
This is prom weekend but none of my girls are going. Not jr.-srs. yet and not dating anyone that is. That is fine with us. Less expense for dresses and pictures and all.:)
I have this weekend off. Am sooooo excited. I don't get too many weekends free. I am going to go get my haircut and we have a meeting to go to on Saturday night but that is all the plans I have for the weekend. Will probably just clean the house and relax the rest of the time. I may even have time to read some this weekend. Wow that would be nice.Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

shake rattle and roll

We had an earthquake this morning at 4:30.I personally didn't know anything was going on because I was still sleeping but I know several people that did know it was happening.
Our daughter's boyfriend,in Southern Illinois was in his dorm room and there were several kids that evacuated the building. I know it was worse down south because that is where it started. I was told that in Chicago there were trimmers felt.
There is a major fault line in Illinois,not sure exactly where but if there ever was a major earthquake I am sure we would know it.
We are all fine here. Nothing damaged and haven't heard on the news of any major damage anywhere so far. I am glad it was nothing major. The only time I have ever felt any trimmers was when i was in high school and it shook a few things in the house. That alone was scary enough.

drivers license, college road trip,flu and other neat stuff

Well, we have one more driver in the family now. Our second daughter just got her license a few weeks ago. It is nice to have that extra driver but then again it is another thing to worry about,having her out there with all the other people that are driving. Scary!!!!
Our oldest is going on a trip this Friday and Saturday to visit a college she wants to go to this fall. She is finishing up her freshman year here,but would like to go to this other college for her next three years. My hubby is going with her Friday to find out about financial help and all that fun stuff. She is going to go to several classes and hang out with the kids there. She is really looking forward to it.
We also have had another one come down with the flu. Our oldest daughter had it yesterday. Now, mom is the only one that hasn't had it and hope NOT too.
70 degrees today so we are going to enjoy the day. We haven't had too many warm days so hope you all have a great day. We are going to enjoy the sun :)

Photo Hunt-Twisted


Had a hard time finding a picture for this week but I think this one is pretty good. I love all these twisted faces.
They were acting silly in the van while we were on vacation and I caught them with the camera. Good times!!

Tuesday blahs

Haven't felt much like blogging lately. Guess it is because everyone is not feeling well here. The girls are down again today not feeling well. Just hope and pray that no one else gets it. It has been all over town and I wish it would just leave!!!!
Not much going on here. Just same old thing. Work,work,work. Only two kids today so far so that is a nice break for me.
Just not feeling up to much. Hope I am not coming down with anything too. Have you ever just felt blah?
Hopefully we will see the sun today and make everyone feel better. It is cold and rainy today.
Have a great Tuesday. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day here with less sick people.

We've got the flu

Well we made it to April before anyone got sick. We have 2 home today with it and hopefully no one else. I have had some of the daycare kids that have had it but it is just now getting our family. Luck us.
The weather is looking nicer today. Next week it is to be in the 50's and may hit the 60's. Yeah!!!!! Spring is finally here.
Gotta get back to taking care of the sick kids. Have a great day!!

Girly Comments & Graphics

Hope everyone is having a great day and not getting pranked too much today. This is my hubby's favorite holiday b/c he is quite a joker. He hasn't pulled any good pranks for quite a while now. Maybe he is growing out of it??? Nah. All the kids forgot about it today so no jokesters around here. Probably for the best.
