The Weekend

We had a pretty good weekend this weekend. Saturday was great. Got a lot done in the morning, including setting up Braeden's workbench.

Our babysitter came at 1:00 so that Braeden and Olivia and I could go to High School Musical on Ice! (Thank you Santa for the great tickets) :) We had so much fun.

The show was very neat. I had heard from others who had already been just how crazy expensive the souvenirs were, so I had bought something for each of them ahead of time and gave them their items when we got there. I got them each a different "dog tag" type necklace with HSM and the cast on them. They were cute, and much much cheaper than the things there. They were so excited! Parking was $20 which I knew ahead of time, but when we arrived I saw many side lots set up that were $10 and then one for $8. We were early enough that I parked in the $8 lot and then had $12 left over. We used that to buy some extra snacks inside. We had brought granola bars, etc and then bought nachos, a huge KitKat, and a drink. They had cotton candy which Braeden LOVES, but I had already talked to him before coming in that we weren't going to get any. Sorry, but I'm NOT paying $12 for cotton candy! Yes, $12! Of course, it did come with the cheap plastic "Ryan" hat, but come on! I wonder where they make their money???!!!

Braeden sat on my lap during the performance and he felt somewhat warm. When we got home, I took his temp. and it was 104! Yuck. He went to sleep with Motrin and was Motrined up throughout the day. He just does not feel well at all. He said his legs hurt and ate no snacks during the day, he didn't play a whole lot, so it's home for me tomorrow. :(

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
