The End of Break

It has been a great spring break! My storage area is amazing! I can actually see what is where and walk into the room again! :) I took pictures and listed many things on eBay, and have many more ready to go. I've shipped the things that have already sold. I LOVE my new glasses!

And then yesterday, our last week day of break, the day Braeden was to stay home for our action planned day, he woke with a fever of 103.7! Once the meds kicked in he did well, but only ate one bite at IHOP and FELL ASLEEP on the bench of the booth!!! lol! He did so great at his picture session and we got some great ones. I can't always say that with him! :) We did make it to the movie and the kids loved it!

Of course, once bedtime hit and he was asleep for a while, that fever rose once again. He was just radiating heat! I brought him to bed with me and alternated his meds throughout the night along with no PJs and some cool cloths on his forehead. Then at 3:15am Girlie woke crying. I went in to reassure her, and SHE was burning up!!! Got her PJs off and some meds in her and got her back to bed. I was BEAT today! She was pretty much fine today and only had Motrin this morning. Braeden did ok during the wakeful times of day, but he was warm again at naptime and didn't even want to get up. SO unlike him! He usually doesn't even take a nap! Once his meds after nap kicked in again he was fine and ate a great dinner, but we'll see what tonight brings. My poor bubba! :( If he is bad again tonight I'm going to haul the crew to ER in the morning to get him some meds. He keeps saying his throat hurts, so I'm not sure what it could be. He doesn't get sick often, and you know he is really sick when he does. Hopefully we'll be good come Monday!

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
