Ugh, today the whole family is sick....cough cough.... I am sitting here hot as heck, and having to take care of the crew. Dad is being a good help however. He is home today also, he caught our bug. Our neighbors are sick. A lot of our friends are sick, its just everywhere! So we chose to barricade the door and fight it out! I think the girls are getting better, Isaac still has a fever.

This last weekend I got to go out and let my hair down. John surprised me with a babysitter and we were invited to got out to dinner with a bunch of the barrack boys and a few married couples. Two of them turned 21 which made me feel very old! John was my DD and everyone elses so I got to drink with the boys which I must say I surprised myself. Sips off stuff and 7-8 shots of Jag later I was feeling no pain. I had a lot of fun being with the younger "kids" and not being a mom for a little while :) made it home and slept like a baby. I woke up a little slow but not to bad. Now that I think of it I was probably starting to get sick that morning.

I hope this sickness goes away, I am hot and sick of coughing!

Yesterday I got news of another death in our family. My brother in laws uncle died at 49 of a heart attack. Uncle bob was a blast to be around and even more fun to camp with. I feel for his family and for my brother shawn. We all have had such a bad year, I only hope it gets better. Rest in peace bob, save me a camping spot in the sky :)

This recent loss of people makes you realize that life is short sometimes. It makes you wonder what an impact people make on you, and the impact you make on others. I came to a conclusion that I DO NOT want to smoke in my 30's. I dont think anyone ever plans on being a smoker when they grow up. No one plans on being out of shape, overweight ect. Life happens, and then life stops sometimes. I love my life most of the time, and I want to see my babys grow up. I want to live to be 92 like my Great Grandma Pearl. I guess the key is wanting to live that long, and I guess being stubborn helps to :)

Thats my news for now, Sarah

you can click on the pics to make them bigger.....I jusst learned that thought i would share.

broken pipes, boredom, and field trips

Yesterday for some odd reason I went up to the girls room while they were at school to turn off the light up there. I dont know what brought me up there perhaps my moms intuition. As soon as I walked in I smelled water.....not normal for the fourth floor. I walked over to the water heater (we have no idea why it is in the top floor) and it was leaking water! A good steady drip too! So I frantically ran downstairs and grabbed the phones to call John. I managed to turn off the power to the heater. John had told me to turn off the master switch in the basement so I went down there and was trying to figure out which one and such and noticed a pipe in the basement was dripping.... well a landlord and plumber/electrician later its all good now. Always trust your gut....Im sure it could of been alot worse! Now I know why hubby turns off the heater when we leave on vacation.

Today I batteling boredom, its like 10 am the house is clean, the laundry is done. The dishes are ganna stay messy...I pay a little girls to do them. I feel like I am slowly running out of things to do. I am turning into the old lady that scrapbooks....... I swear I would never turn into a boring housewife. Maybe I need to move to "Wisteria lane" and become a desperate housewife. Even the poor boy is laying on the couch watching Judge Judy.....lol

So I guess we are going to get dresses and maybe go to the library or meet dad for lunch. Check the mail, and be bop around thill the kids get home from school. Last Friday we went on a field trip with Emmy class. John, Isaac and I followed along and did "PT" at the gym, then we went to the post office and learned all kinds of new things about our post office. Next we went to the Army DFAC..............fancy word for cafeteria. They showed us the behind the seens and stuff. Isaac loved being in with all the kids and was super awesome!!! We had a Blast!!! I will enclose a pic of the field trip.

Reese and Isaac beating up Shawn :)
Hmmmm what to write about. I left off on my trip to the states.......

So I got to visit my main family and My husbands family. Its funny with family its like you never left.... I could just pic up a conversation like it was 8 years ago, I miss that. I met a lot of new family members too!

I had a lot of fun going out and doing things and being able to communicate in English....its just the little things :) I lost my mind at a 7-11 starting buying all kinds of things :) I went home at a good time of year, got lots of good deals! It amazed me how many stores and homes have been built. I never drove the whole time I was home! Im glad I went home, it was long overdue. I cant wait to take my girls home next. They are so excited to come home, they miss there grandmas :) Zoey has her own itinerary when she comes home. She is on a mission to find doll house stuff, and fabric! Emmy just wants to play and eat :)

John and I have been thinking of a good beach trip. Its been a long time since Ive been to the west coast. Im not sure thought because before we come home we area schedualed to go to spain for two whole weeks. We may be beached out :)

I miss everyone so much already. I felt bad alot for not being able to do more. I think it was all so sudden and spur of the moment. And it went by so fast! I am sure glad to be home now though...its actually snowing right now, up to about 3 inches! There was snow this morning, and mom outside at 7am shoveling the walk. I dont know what I was thinking...Im just wide awake in the morning, delayed jetlag possibly :)

Im off now, Oprah is on ;)
