Another preview!

I haven’t even added these to Flickr yet! I had them soaking in water for 3 days and finally cleaned them up late last night and grabbed pics this morning! I am really sad that I broke my favorite leaf, but I will make more! Also, made some beads into earrings! I plan on selling those not only on etsy but also in our store and the other 2 places you can find my jewelry and beads IRL! 😉

So here they are!

So that is all for me today! The kids have a half day of school and I have two home sick with sinus infections and ear infections. I am clorox-ing EVERYTHING today! Gotta get the germies out of here!!!

Just Go Away Already!!

Man, it has been a really rough month! While having a large family does mean that when one kid gets sick, usually it will go through the whole house. But its going on a month now of one sickness after another after another!

Even our pediatrician commented that every time we have brought kids in, it has been for different illnesses. First Ben went down and was out for the count for almost a full week. Auggie and Sammy followed after but not quite as severe. Just when we thought we were out of the woods, Rachel came down with something different and just as the kids were getting really really sick of me telling them to go wash your hands, Sammy gets sick again…and Josiah too! Thankfully, the teens haven’t been sick at all and have been a great help. I am so exhausted from sleepless nights, congestion and breathing treatments and constant clingy babies. And thank goodness for delivered pizza. It wasn’t in the budget this week but it was a lifesaver and was a huge relief for me!!!

Last night I finally got some sleep! I went to bed early and slept so hard. I get so tired being pregnanct anyways that this sleep was so welcome!! Today it seems Sammy is starting to come around. We haven’t had to do a breathing treatment yet. Jojo sounds awful so I am sure we will head back in to get some meds for him early next week. But I am feeling half way human today and am hoping to get some fun stuff done, especially since this is the first time all week I have sat at the computer without holding a kid….or two!
