Thankful Thursday

Long time no blog... I know...

I had a quiet, but fun weekend with Pumpkin, while the boys were away.  We did some crafting, and that was fun.

Pumpkin bowled her highest game yet, a 97 at her bowling league!  Exciting stuff.

I was and am still not feeling 100%, still coughing and congested. 

Starting Monday night, Pumpkin's ear began to hurt, and sure enough, it was infected.  Then, overnight Tuesday, Fuzzy's began, too, and his was also infected.  I guess having all that congestion for all that time, it was inevitable, at least for my kids.   So, a round of 10 days of cefzil for each.  feh.

Of course, bad nights for them, has meant bad nights for me.  Including one night where both of them were in bed with me!  Ack!  Somewhere around 2:30am, I walked a mostly sleeping Pumpkin into the next room so I could finally sleep!

Motherhood... lol.

Hammer has avoided being sick so far!  His GalPal is here today, as she is on school break, and they are playing video games. 

I am hoping to be able to go back onto the Enbrel shots this weekend, maybe Sunday.  Today my hands are so swollen, and my hip is really aching again.  I would really like to get some additional RA/Lupus help.  Fingers crossed yet again. 

Seems like a broken record lately...

Thankful Thursday waits for no one though, so here are my thankful.

1.     Coffee.  'Nuff said.

2.     Mystic Pizza.  My latest comfort food. 

3.     Books.  I think I have read 6 in the last 5 days.  Pumpkin has been reading like crazy while being sick, too.

4.     Family.  My heart.

5.     Pets.  My snuggles.

6.     Internet.  My support.  :-) 

Have a great Thankful Thursday!

be well,
Dawn

Well, Hi there.  I'm so sorry about all the ears and germs.  Hope everyone gets on the mend really soon, and that you can get back on your course of Enbrel shots.  
In that last graphic, I say shoot 'em!, the dirty rotten coffee thief!!
                            Have a great Friday and weekend.   Leigh

Hey!  I know that cat on the bottom!  That's Zeus --Now without his kiwis.  

Sorry to hear about the ear infections.  I think it's all that crazy, sinful rock and roll music the kids are listening to these days.  

Still...  It's good to know your kids could beat me in a game of bowling (and I live in Milwaukee.  My people invented bowling).  Someday, if I make it to Jersey, try not to let them beat me up.

Hi Dawn,
Now you have me curious.  What's "Mystic Pizza" ... do you mean the movie or is there an actual kind of Mystic Pizza?!?
Best,
Marty
