H has been sick for several days. On Thursday morning she woke up with a sore throat. She still went to school but didn't feel great. Friday night she came into our room in the middle of the night crying that her head hurt and her stomach and she felt like throwing up. I gave her some medicine and a drink and tucked her back in and she was able to sleep. Yesterday she didn't go play with friends and spent a lot of time laying around. I hoped she was getting better but last night she felt really sick again and woke up in the middle of the night. She is also coughing:( I stayed home from church with her and she's drinking and eating okay. Is this swine flu? a cold? who knows. Hopefully it will just run it's course and she will be well soon...and no one else will get it.
In other news we see the sun today!!!!
Last night Beloved and I went on a date to Olive Garden and to Christmas shop. I've been doing some for weeks now and last night we pretty much finished up! Yeah again! I love to shop for Christmas gifts if I do it early. When I wait until December it is much less fun and way more stressful. The little kids are always so fun to shop for because they love toys and cute little things. The teens are harder. They want stuff but it's all too expensive. For example J wants a car, a lap top, an electric violin. She also has several big outings she wants to take: a $300+ trip with the orchestra to Philadelphia in April, $300+ to coast guard camp this summer, EFY, venturing summer trip. Cha Ching.
S just wants money, for school, car repairs, life. It's less "fun" but I try and find thoughtful, useful gifts that they will like and feel loved.
This year it's my turn to buy for Anna. I am excited because with little Joneaux coming that is extra fun:)
Last night we did some wrapping and we are right on schedule to start decking the halls and having holiday cheer with out the worry of shopping hanging over our heads.

WOW!!! I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo impressed with the bought and wrapped presents!!! It is always my goal, but rarely a reality. This Nada. Nothing bought. Yep...I have a stressful month ahead, don't I?

I hope H is feeling better.

In other news, C spent awhile crying yesterday that he couldn't have E over to play Battlefront. I thought the missing him had gone down, but it was back in full force yesterday. :(

BTW: I miss YOU, too!

All 3 of my kids and myself have had the swine flue (diagnosed).
Ours lasted 5 days- cough, high fever, some body aches and sore throat and terrible headache.
It comes and goes- everytime you think you're over it the fever comes back at night.
I hope she feels better soon and the rest of you don't get it- it's not fun!

congrats on getting the shopping and wrapping done. I've got most of the shopping done and plan to start wrapping this week. I hope your little one is feeling better soon. We missed you at church today.

I am almost done Christmas shopping, too. My motivation -- I thought Christmas shopping would be pretty miserable 8.5 months pregnant!

I hope H feels better soon. :o)

Sorry about H--I hope she is feeling better.

Hooray for you and getting the Christmas shopping done. I'm making headway, but it is SLOW.

Good for you guys! You have been a source of motivation, as always :) I am totally going to work on that this week!!
Hope H feels better!!!
