Spring Forward

The springing forward is not fun! :)

I have a travel alarm that I have been using while my mom is here. It's an atomic clock, so you don't set it, it sets itself. Well, I woke Sunday morning to Liam talking up a storm. The clock said 6:30, so I thought it was "technically" 5:30 still and they need to sleep!!! They boys were up, Girlie was up, I got up. I had already set the kitchen clocks and what a surprise to find that it was 8:10 when I finally came down!!! My atomic clock did not set itself!!! This was not good. Especially as Olivia's meds are given every 12 hours, at 7, and I was going to up the time to 7:30 (technically 6:30) and had already missed that. What a start. I stayed in pjs all day, but did get a lot done at home. I completely overhauled the boys room, moving the trundle toy drawer out as a low bed so Liam is ready when we switch to the big boy bed. :) Then had to rearrange the whole room, reorganize (who knew one under bed drawer could hold so much!), and put to rights. Then I put away two baskets of clean clothes in their room as well. Whew!

So last night, no one wanted to go to sleep. It took the kids forever to quiet. When I went to check on the boys, Liam had no pjs on anymore! And this morning, same for girlie! It is NOT that warm yet people! I couldn't get to sleep well either and am paying for it this morning. Last night my travel alarm still had not changed, so I switched it to mountain time so that the time was right. WELL, guess what!? It switched over night, so instead of going off at 5:40, it was actually 4:40 and I had NO clue until AFTER my shower!!! Then I went and lay back down until the real time I needed to get up. I am so tired!!!

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
