It's all Rae's fault

So here I am...weeks later, yeah I know I've got some splainin' to do ;). Hm, where to begin? Well the past few weeks I haven't been feeling well physically, I actually made a doctor's appointment last week which as it turns out is scheduled for tomorrow. (A little too late but who knew?) I'll come back to the sick thing I promise.

Those that know me and/or Rae knew that she was coming to spend Thanksgiving holiday with us. The few days before she was due to arrive were very hectic all in themselves because of the parties at school and the fact it is Joshua's and Jonathan's and John's birthday all in the same week. I had dishes to cook and cakes to drop off and stores to go to and all on very little sleep that week. So wednesday morning arrives and we are off to pick Rae up from the airport. We get there, traffic wasn't too crazy and her flight arrived on time so I look for her, have her paged and boom there she is. She's exhausted and extremely hungry, we scoop Patrick up and head straight for home to make a huge breakfast. After we eat I run off to do all the wonderful mommy errands for the day while Rae takes a nap with Patrick.

The next day is Thanksgiving so I make the ham and the sweet potatoes and we go to mom's for dinner. It was a very nice/relaxing evening. The next day I take Rae to an occult shop she wanted to go to then we pick up Lisa and come back home for family night/the kids' birthday. We decide to take a lovely evening drive downtown to show Rae the big christmas tree and take her to check out the Chicago skyline at night from the planetarium. She got to see The Museum ;) as we drove past it. When we get home, because I'm on tons of medication, I feel ubber crappy and I sleep a whole bunch while poor Rae stays up til the wee hours of the morning online while I'm snoring in the background. Saturday comes and it's the ICP concert for her and John. I drop them off and come back home. As I walk up the stairs my stomach decides to explode and next thing you know I'm in the Emergency Room. Not to worry, my brother and his girlfriend take me so Rae and John actually get to enjoy the concert. They don't find out til afterwards where I'm at. Needless to say it was all fun in the ER as they cut me open, clean me out, pack me up and send me home. Sunday is John's birthday so we go out to dinner (Korean) and not much else since I'm still kinda feeling cruddy. Monday I'm off to the surgeon so he can unpack me and when we get back it's time for Rae to pack and relax just a bit before were off to the airport.

I feel so horrible that I was sick while my Rae was in town. Her next visit will be so much better because it will be summer and we'll have lots more time to do more fun things. Now I'm just sorta healing and finally feeling somewhat normal. Still sleeping alot but not in too much pain. So there you have it...anyone wanting gory details feel free to ask Rae.

You stayed for drama though you paid for a comedy

Junte lo mas hermoso
que vivi yo contigo,
los detalles, las cosas
que me haran recordar te.
Ahora voy a marchar me,
pues tu lo decidiste.
Lo comprendo y me alejo
no sin antes decir te:

Que el tiempo que duro nuestro amor
tu me hiciste feliz,
y en mi adios te deseo lo mejor,
pero estas donde estas
nunca voy a olvidar te,
yo te juro que no
tratare de olvidar te.

Si tu quieres mi amor,
para mi no me importa,
yo te quiero al morir
sobre todas las cosas.

El Tiempo que duro nuestro amor
nunca lo olvido.

nunca se olvida
nunca se olvida un dulce amor

El tiempo que duro nuestro amor
nunca te olvido,

y en mi adios te deseo lo mejor
lo mejor de la vida.

Ahora me marcho de aqui
con mucha pena te lo voy a decir.

Rosie and Jonathan very proud of all their hard work.

What flavor did you get?

So now that everyone has had their snowcone we can move on (see what happens when you add juice to snow) mine was razzberry by the way. I must thank everyone for their comments they actually made a bad situation easier to deal with. I'm so glad I have friends like you. For those involved all I can say is I'm sorry and I love you all for loving me enough to deal with my crap. Everyone else who is confused...feel lucky that you didn't have to live through it with us and here have a snowcone ;).

The kids had fun raking up leaves with dad on saturday. I however was in bed all of friday and most of saturday due to horrible back pain (thank goodness for drugs thats all I have to say). Sunday was better we just relaxed and I went downtown to meet a fellow agent for a mission for those interested. Sunday night I watched the Diary of Ellen Rimbauer with John and neither of us were impressed with the movie but the fact that we were able to watch a movie all the way through without the kids making noise was a treat in itself. They were asleep so they weren't actually able to misbehave :p.

No school for the kids on wednesday, report card pick up. *Shakes head* I'll let you know how that goes.

Edit: Turns out that report pick up is next wednesday the 17th but they do have tomorrow and friday off for Veterans' Day and Teacher Professional Development Day.

Reflection of days past

It started at the top and worked it's way down hill sweeping up everyone in it's path leaving us all cold and numb; ended up one very huge snowball once it hit bottom.

Did you see that wreck?

Well if it wasn't bad enough Bush won, my day was shot to hell from the get go. I knew I should have stayed in bed, pulled the covers over me and slept through the day. I just had a feeling, thats what I get for not listening to my gut, not like I had much of a choice huh?

If I think positive and repeat "Tomorrow will be better" over and over as I click my heels together three times maybe I'll skip tomorrow and jump right into friday ;). I have a feeling friday is gonna be a good day.

If we don't see it does that mean it isn't there?

It's so easy to make stubborn stains dissapear with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Works well on most surfaces...not so good on life's mistakes though...I doubt thats what they had in mind when they came up with it anyhow ;).

So I've been thinking about all the stuff I'd erase if I could..darn that would be a whole lot of earsing so I figure I'll leave it be. Maybe in my next life I'll buy stock in liquid paper for the permanent stuff ya know.
