New Year's Eve

Ashlyn giving her Mama a kiss before she has to go to bed on New Year's Eve...Her and Ryan are still having problems with the stomach flu, every time we think they are over it they start again.
I had to work today and the person who takes over for me at 5:30 p.m. did not come to work today and so the supervisors at corporate were expecting me to stay until 10 tonight...I told them that I could not do that because I had plans.
Plus it was the end of the month and the closings for our facility for the month had to be done and the evening person had not closed since the 12th and she was supposed to close every day. She had messed up one of the accounts on the 12th and so I had to call accounting and have a supervisor help me and then I had to go in and enter the information for each day so that we could close and accounting could close us out for the month and the year. Made for a very long day at work.
I have two days off work on 1/9 and 1/12 because we are helping my son move to Arkansas. He lives in Wisconsin and will be in Missouri on 1/3 and will stay with us until we head to Arkansas on the 9th. This is his daughter's first visit back to Missouri since she was 8 months old and she will be three in March. I am so happy that they are moving to Arkansas they will be about 30 minutes away from my Mom and I will see them more than when they lived in Wisconsin.

My First Post

I was born in Arkansas and now live in Missouri. I am a wife, mom, grandmother, foster parent, foreign exchange parent, etc.

My birthday was two days ago and I had two babies sick with the stomach flu...Ashlyn is 18 months old and Ryan is 7 3/4 months old...I have custody of both babies they belong to my youngest daughter.

My oldest daughter, had tried to have a family get together on the 27th for my birthday because my husband had to work the the middle of it Ashlyn started throwing up and so my youngest son and his wife and two children left (they were the only ones who did not live in our home that were at the party)...PARTY OVER!

Out of all of my relatives on MySpace and Facebook I only got four birthday greetings and one of them just arrived this morning. My mom did call about 2 p.m. on Sunday and wish me a Happy Birthday and admitted that she had forgotten until my niece handed her the receipt from the grocery store and she saw the date on it. My oldest son called from Wisconsin early on the 28th which was my birthday.

I will post pictures from so called birthday celebration when I get home...I do not have the camera with me to upload them because I am at work.

Not the best picture but when we went to the memory card in my husband's new camera there were not any pictures on it...I had luckily uploaded the ones from the Sunday Program at church and the visit with Santa.
