lots going on

I will play catch up the best way that I can. Ruth, you offered a piece of fabric and I would love it. Let me know what I can send you in return, thanks friend :-)
Friday I woke up feeling blah, sinuses I think. So I didn't go to Curves. Went to work but got worse so I left at noon. I got home and crawled into bed. The kids got home at 3 and what do they do? Ask me questions:
Dylan:Mom, did dad cash my paycheck?
Me: I don't know he has been hunting all day.
10 minutes , after I fell back asleep
Justin:Mom why are you home already and in bed?
Me:I am sick and trying to sleep.
Now I am awake so I might as well get up. DH also knows that I am home sick as I had called him when I left work. He calls me at 5 pm. Wants to know if I want to have dinner with his family. No, I am sick, DUH! Dylan also has a friend crashing for the night. Dylan comes home, from the neighbors with a swollen finger. Was piling wood and someone threw a piece which pinched his finger between 2 pieces of wood.

Saturday we get up. My car is going in the shop because it likes to stall and the engine light is on. So I take it next door for them to work on it. Dylan gets up for work and says he thinks his finger is broken, Scott thinks it is dislocated. Well Dylan has to be at work and we are down to 1 vehicle. So Scott drops Dylan off at work and then comes pick me back up, I drop Scott off to work Dylan's job and take him to the emergency room. They do an xray and his finger is broken and dislocated. OUCH!! So they put it in a splint and have to put the finger back into place. Now I can watch my kids get stitches, have blood drawn, ect. Watching them do this to my child's finger is a no go. So I watch Dylan's face and his face gets real white and his eyes are funky and he almost passed out. Now his finger is all better and says he will take me out for lunch. So we pick up lunch for Scott as well. Drop that off to him and find out my car is done. They put in a new fuel filter and spark plugs. I drive it and it is still not all better. So they put in new spark plug wires. Mean time I go back and pick up Scott from work and then go and pick up the Christmas tree. Bring that home and Scott takes Dyaln's friend home. I fall asleep on the couch, knowing that we have a Christmas party at 6pm and I still need a shower. When I wake up 2 hours later, Scott is still not home because the gas station was so busy that he helped out there for a little bit. I get my shower, he comes home and gets his shower and out the door we go for the Christmas party. Now I had planned on sleeping all day so I would feel better. That did not happen.
Sunday was a little better and I did sleep in. Justin even brought Dylan home at 9:30pm, from work so I could go to bed early. Great kid that he is.
Did I mention that 2 weeks ago Dylan and his girlfriend broke up? I was so thrilled but they were still hanging together all the time. I don't like her or her family. Well Monday he txts me from work about a girl coming over, after school. I said sure. This girl is very pretty and polite. I liked her alot. They are now going out and Dylan is such a happier kid without the ex in his life. She was a very depressing person and never smiled or joked around. This new girl is all smiles and very talkative. So I am thrilled for him.
My stitching and reading has taken a back burner to my getting rest so I will feel better. it is just sinuses and sudafed will help, if I remember to take it.
Today I leave for work and my engine light is on again so I call Scott and ask him if I can get a new car LOL. He said to leave mine on the railroad tracks LOL. I love my car but not to happy with it at the moment. Dylan's new girlfriend is here again and I hoping to decorate the tree and maybe stitch tonight.
Well I guess I talked all of your eyes off so I will go. Such drama for just a few days of no posting LOL.


  1. I've missed your posts the past couple of days. Sorry to hear about all the drama - being sick, broken finger, bad car. I hope you're starting to feel better soon! And congrats to Dylan on his new girlfriend.

  2. Goodness what a weekend! Hope they figure out what's wrong with your vehicle and your ds finger heals quickly.

    It's nice when we like the new girlfriend in our sons lives. My 16yo has a wonderful girlfriend. We just don't get to see her here very often as she has allergies to animals, so usually ds goes to her house. At least they'll put him to work, and he happily does whatever needs to be done! Definitely not the case at home. :D

  3. lol what a weekend :) hope you are feeling better now! So glad to hear that things are going well with Dylan and his new GF :)

  4. What a weekend you had!!! I'm tired now from reading about it. :)

    I hope you are feeling lots better now!

  5. Oh my goodness, lots of stuff going on in your house. I hope things are better soon. I hope things work out with the new girl. My kids aren't there yet-but I wonder what in the world am I going to do if I don't like their choices. Take care!
