My husband was out of town all week.  I was putting in new laminate flooring in my kitchen and front room.  My dad came to help me which I really appreciate.  In the middle of it all, my 6 year old daughter and I got sick with the flu and the doc thinks it’s swine flu all though they can’t really tell without an expensive test.  Anyway, we got the Tamiflu and we’re really hoping the baby doesn’t get sick.  It’s been miserable stuff though.  Lance got back last night and he finished putting in the rest of the floor in the kitchen today.  It looks so nice.  Carpet and six kids just doesn’t work.  :)

oh Andrea, I feel sooooo bad for you guys! We had the swine flu in my house several weeks back. We did have the test and it was definitely the H1N1 virus. However, having the test didn't make anyone feel any better!! The one thing I can say is: I don't think the H1N1 flu lasted as long as the regular flu. It lasted about a week, but I recall my daughter having the flu a few years ago and she was literally feeling miserable for almost 2 weeks!!

I hope you are all on the mend now and I definitely hope no one else gets it, especially the baby!

I'm lovin' your new stuff! Gosh, girl...I don't know where you find the time, but I am glad you do! :) Great kits!!

Thank you for this awesome template!

I agree about the carpet vs. wood floor or tile! The carpet just never stays clean, no matter how hard you try - and I've only got 4 kids.

Hope you heal quickly.

Thank you for the wonderful template!

Are these items still on sale? Some appear to be but the 50-set of templates aren't so I thought I would ask you. Thanks! I hope everyone has recovered quickly from the flu.

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?

  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
