“No! This isn’t what I like! This look went out of style in the 1700s!!”

“I don’t have time for bubble wigs. I have places to be and cousins to meet.”

Tuesday

Thanks, sweet Nornor! :)

I’ve had every intention of updating nightly, but obviously I haven’t been so able to do that. I will continue to update as regularly as I can with the goal of getting back to the nightly/daily posts!

It’s not a good indication of how the day is going to go when one of the kids shows up at the bedroom door hyperpuke-illating all over the place. The answer to my question of, “What’s that noise?” was quickly realized and I suddenly found myself trying to reroute poor Greta into the bathroom while hurdling puddles of puke.

Obviously she did not go to school today and has been feeling rotten all day long and on into the night. We hope and pray this is only a 24 hour gig and that the rest of us can escape it.

I’ve dusted off the boxes of surgical masks from our rendez-flu back in January, been scrubbing my hands raw, and Lysol-ing the heck out of this place. Ughhh. We ALMOST made it to Spring!!! I sincerely hope and pray we didn’t infect my sister’s family while we were visiting.

Thank you so much for your prayers, kind words and encouragement and offers for help on Nora’s FB page! We had nursing help today so I was able to get out to get what we needed, which of course coincided with the threat of snow. So yes, I appeared to be one of the panic-stricken yayhoos depleting the shelves of bread and milk in true tri-state fashion!

We sooo appreciate all of you!

My reminder of the day:

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
(Romans 12:12)

  1. I SO LOVE YOUR POSTS. THE PICTURES ARE ALL SO VERY GOOD. LOVE NORA SNORING AWAY. ALSO HER WITH HER LITTLE COUSIN PARKER IS ADORABLE. NORA LOOKS SO BIG IN COMPARISON TO PARKER. THE SUNSET OUT THE CAR WINDOW IS BEAUTIFUL. THE PICTURE OF YOU AND NORA IS PRICELESS, I LOVE THAT ONE SO MUCH. ALWAYS LOVE THE ONES WITH THE THREE CHILDREN BEFORE THE OLDER KIDS GO TO SCHOOL. NORA SURE LOVES HER BATHS. IT LOOKS LIKE SHE WAS LAUGHING OUT LOUD. SO HAPPY TO BE IN THE BIG TUB. I DON’T THINK SHE LIKED HER NEW BUBBLY HAIR STYLE. DON’T WORRY ABOUT POSTING EVERY DAY. YOU KNOW SOMETHING, IT MAKES ALL OF US APPRECIATE THEM EVEN MORE WHEN YOU DO HAVE TIME. I AM SPEAKING FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE ( I THINK) WHEN I SAY WE CAN ALL UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE A LOT TO KEEP UP WITH. I LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH AND PRAY THAT YOU ALL ARE HAVING A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP RIGHT NOW. TELL YOUR FAMILY I SAID HI AND GIVE LITTLE NORA A KISS FOR ME, UNTIL I GET TO MEET THAT LITTLE PRINCESS. GUESS I WILL BE GETTING TO BED, SO I WILL SAY GOOD NIGHT AND GOD BLESS.
