I am having body aches, chills, fever, and am very sleepy.
I have pictures to post of the Ice/Snow storm and just cannot get the energy to do it today...I was hoping that I would...this is my first day back to work since Monday the office was closed for the past two days...at least I get to take PTO so I don't lose much pay.
This is also my first day of feeling sick and I mean I feel horrible.

My brother in law and my husband when they were little
Long day at work had a lot of things happening...we may be getting our office back on track and they will not be talking about closing it.
The weather has been nice but we are expecting another winter storm on Monday.
There is a lot going on with my youngest daughter and I cannot even begin to put it in this blog. It is wearing me out emotionally, spiritually, and physically. I am just so tired of her drama.

I have calmed down some but not a lot...today my husband informed me that all of the parts that we have spent money buying for the minivan were not really necessary that it was probably just an air pocket causing it to overheat...GRRRR!!!!

Here is what the minivan still looks like after almost five days of work on it...yes, this is the minivan that we were supposed to use for our trip to Hot Springs...we have had to buy so many parts for it already that there is not much money left for the week.

Well, I have today and Monday off work with pay...finally some time off that I can hopefully enjoy. We are leaving shortly to go down to Hot Springs...if I don't get my blog updated I promise to catch us with something for each day when I get back. I may not have access to my pictures while I am down there.

Samantha and Ryan
This is my oldest daughter and I with the babies...do my daughter and I resemble each other???
Since I had posted pictures of my sons I decided to post one of my oldest daughter...do not have a current one of my youngest daughter...we have not seen or heard from her in over six weeks. Very long story there most of it is in posts on my Cafemom account.
I get to see my mom this weekend finally...I will try to take pictures of some of the pages of the scrapbook before I take it down to her and post them here as well.

My second son T.J.
With my oldest son and his family at my home and then my other son and his family coming over the noise level has been really bad. This has kept Ashlyn and Ryan in an uproar and has destroyed all of their sleep and eating habits. I will get into the vent about different parenting styles later. Suffice it to say my two daughter-in-laws married my sons and they have their own style of parenting and I do not interfere in their parenting (I made them both a promise that I would not interfere before their children were born). So, I think that they should let me parent/raise the two babies that I have custody of without interfering.
I have more pictures to post to this later tonight after my oldest son and his wife go out to dinner and a movie while I babysit my oldest granddaughter.
I still have to finish my mom's scrapbook because we are going to Arkansas this weekend to see her. Nothing much got done on it and I really want to get it done so I can take it to her.

As you can see the Christmas tree is still up in the living room because we are waiting for my son from Wisconsin to get here this weekend. He will be staying a few days before he and his family complete their move to Arkansas. Also above is a picture of my son and my two younger brothers when my son was down in Arkansas in October when he had to preach one Sunday so that the church could do a vote on whether or not to accept him as a youth pastor. That is my oldest granddaughter in the cheerleader outfit that she wore for her first time to go trick or treating (she had never gone before). I am so excited to be seeing my son in a few days and I cannot wait for him and his family to get here. He is my oldest son.
So we are busy cleaning and disinfecting (because of the kids stomach flu) so that we will be ready for their visit.
I also have to find time to work on and finish the scrapbooks that I have for my mom, brothers, and sisters for their Christmas gifts.
