Health Report

Well,  Steve had held out on being sick with the stomach virus until Saturday night.  It hit him.  I am happy and thankful to report that we are all better now.  Except I have an ear infection.  My terrible sore throat turned into a bunch of drainage and resulted in an ear infection.  I did not feel well at all over the weekend and my balance has been very off.  I was still running fever Monday morning, so I went to the doctor.  I am now taking an antibiotic.  My ear does not hurt anymore, but it is stopped up and driving me crazy!!!!  I just want to sit in a comfortable chair and just stare.
We are hosting our Sunday School Christmas party this weekend, so I am trying to get ready for that.
I have heard so many sad things in the past few weeks that I hate to complain about my health at all.  Next post, I hope to be doing better.

Just something to think about......
GOD loves you soooooooo MUCH!  Always has, always will.  There is nothing you can do to make Him love you more and there is nothing you can do that would make Him love you less!  He IS love!

Have a great week!

I had an ear infection at the beginning of November and it took two weeks to clear up. I felt awful too. I'm glad to hear you are (mostly) better and thank you for the words of wisdom at the end of your post.

I remember years and years ago when we took the kids home for a holiday and Kelly got sick before we left for home and Chris was sick by the time we stopped for lunch in LR. As soon as we hit the house, Steve was sick and I had it by the next day. It was TERRIBLE! But I will always remember it! Good ole family memories!!

Sorry you had such a rough holiday and hope your ear gets much better so you can enjoy your party!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
