Boring Days

Well, it's a good thing. Our days have been pretty boring. Nothing extraordinary. Routine of school/work/day care/dinner/reading/etc. I even was able to spend the evening with a good friend last night whom I don't get to see a whole lot. We went to dinner and a movie (Juno - very good movie!). While I was gone it was slight chaos of course. The worst was probably when Girlie took both of her hands and simultaneously slapped Olivia from both sides of the face. She is just not very good if I'm not around. The other night when I was gone she got out of bed and slapped Olivia. What's that about??? So much aggression.

On the funny side... Our house is fairly small. The whole 1/2 story upstairs is all the boys'. While my mom is here, she is staying in my room and I have an inflatable bed upstairs near the stairs while their beds are on the other side of the room. Many times when she comes she stays on the futon in the basement as it's pretty comfortable, but it's just too cold right now down there! Well, I think some little boys were jumping on my bed at times and one morning I woke with my rear against the floor. I reinflated and then the next morning I woke up flat on the floor, no air left! Braeden saw this and said, "Mama, your bed is out of breath!" lol too cute!!! I proceeded to buy a new one needless to say and so far it's holding up well.

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
