Honey I'm HOME!!!!

Yep, sick and mopy Sandra has LEFT the building, she took her yucky feeling, her weak body, her bucket and her ginger ale and moved on to the next unsuspecting victim. Be sure to wipe down your monitors after visiting my site, last thing I need is anyone getting this bug from me.

I'm so thankful for all the prayers and well wishes, like I said yesterday, I don't know how I made it through these past 3 days.
Unfortunately hubby got it too, he was sent home from work yesterday, by the time he got home he was deathly pale and feeling awful. He spent the whole day in bed and he seems to be a bit better this morning, Thank God, he didn't get to vomit. I'm thankful for that.

So, yeah, I'm back to my normal self, now I can drink my pitcher mug of coffee, eat my toast, post on my blog and go back and read all my favorite ones and ACTUALLY leave comments. If I haven't been on your blog the past few days, it's just because my stomach got the better of me.

Today is the last day of school and it's a bitter sweet feeling. I love Jasmine's First Grade Teacher, she's just the sweetest and so wonderful with the kids. You just know when you've come across at teach that will always stay on your kids minds and hearts. We've been extremely lucky and blessed to have that happen not only this year but with her Kindergarten teacher too.

While reading my mail this morning, I had one from my wonderful SIL Hayley. It's called "The Five Finger Prayer" and it's SO neat, that I just had to share with you all.

1. Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for
those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for
our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a "sweet duty."

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach,
instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers.
They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right
direction. Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our
leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry,
and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public
opinion. They need God's guidance.

4. The fourth fingeris our ring finger. Surprising to many is the
fact that this is our weakest finger; as any piano teacher will
testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in
trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot
pray too much for them.

5. And lastly comes our little finger; the smallest finger of all
which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and
others. As the Bible says, "The least shall be the greatest among
you." Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the
time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will
be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for
yourself more effectively.

Isn't that a great way to remember to pray? I don't know about you all, but there have been times that I am so desperate to pray and then draw a complete blank and end up babbling like a fool, making no sense at all, then I wonder why God didn't answer my prayer????
Well Sandra, maybe if you spoke in words and sentences he could understand!!!!!

There must be times that he sits up there just shaking his head and thinking "Oh boy, this one is definitely a sandwich short of a picnic." Of course he doesn't really think that, because he loves us unconditionally, even during our dumb no so brilliant moments.

I'm a little annoyed, we were supposed to go see some Volcanoes that are just 15 minutes away, the kids were so excited to go look and well, so were we, the big kids you know. BUT we are expecting thunderstorms starting today and all through next week Tuesday. Why?!?!?! Who ordered these?!?!?! So now we're going to spend this long weekend just sitting home, can't even go outside to play get some fresh air. Guess we'll make this a movie watching weekend, not that I mind, but I would rather be climbing a Volcano, looking in the hole thingy (whatever it's called, Volcano mouth??? whatever), collecting lava rocks and getting some exercise. Actually that's starting to sound like too much work LOL

Well my friends, I better get moving. I have stuff to do, no places to go, you know, FUN FUN!!!
Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, if you live in a sunny place, go camping for me and take some pics then come back and share ok???
I'll be back later with my "Remember When???" for this friday. :)


  1. Wow. I'm gonna teach that during children's church this Sunday. I really liked it! Thanx for posting it!

  2. Sorry to hear about the rain -- we're close to the 90's in MN and I'm loving the heat. Tomorrow: pool day with a good book!! Or the lake, haven't decided which yet. I'm so glad you're feeling better. And you know what else? I'm really glad that you liked your daughter's teacher. So many people aren't pleased with teachers nowdays, and to hear you say something positive was really nice. I'll say a prayer of thankfulness that someone terrific like her is in our education system and was able to touch your family.

    Hey -- don't go getting any prettier this weekend. You're making the rest of us girls look bad. Kidding, kidding.

  3. Happy your feeling better but sorry about your hubby! You know what prevents that Miss Sandra.....No smoochin while your sick! LOL! Sorry had to say it!
    Love ya,

  4. I bounced over here from FlipFlopMammas Blog. I like that 5 finger prayer deal.

    I'm glad you're feeling better. God bless you.


  5. Jaimy - Glad you liked the 5 finger prayer, isn't it just neat? :)

    Emily - Thanks for the prayer, she really is a wonderful teacher and has been just amazing with all the kids, my daughter is now reading at a 3rd grade and 6 month level in first cool is that?
    No worries about looking prettier, without my makeup on I'm perfect for a horror show, and I don't mean as a victim LOL

    Court - LOL see I should have not kissed him, but hey I couldn't help it....I guess I was being rebellious and trying to pass the germs *did I say that out loud?* LOL Just kidding!!!

    Liz - Thanks for dropping by my blog, I'm going to check yours out and add you to my blogroll if that's ok? :) Glad you liked the 5 finger prayer, it's really cute :)

  6. Glad you are feeling better!!! Have a lovely weekend.

  7. So good you are better - too bad about the weather though. Try to have fun anyway Iguess.

    It seems so strange that you Americans are starting summer holidays so soon. We don't astart till the end of June here. When do you go back to school? Before labour day? We go back right after labour day.

    Enjoy your weekend - rain or shine.

  8. Glad you're feeling better!

    Have a great weekend. Hope hubby feels better soon!

  9. Hey Sandy! Glad to hear that you are feeling better. The flu has came back this way. Do you think we are all passing it back and forth?? ;)
    I will truly miss our afternoon walks and adventures of getting all the kids home in one piece from school. Once the badgers are cought we will have to plan trips to the park back there.
    I am planning a trip to the volcanos for next Sunday. Hoping and praying for nice weather. By the way I love the five finger prayer.

  10. toni - thanks, I feel so much better. I hope you guys have a great weekend, you always go to the most beautiful places, can't wait to see more pics up on your blog :)

    5 minutes for mom - Thanks :) We're going to try and have fun at home, guess watching movies, playing games etc. Yep, we're already on holiday here and then go back to school August 23rd. Hope you guys have a great weekend :)

    Kim - Thank you :) Hubby is feeling better too :) Hope you and the family have a great weekend!

    Veronica - Oh man, I'm sorry, it sucks, we see so much of each other that when one is sick it's almost a certainty that the others will get it too LOL I know what you mean about the walks, I'm already getting sad just thinking that there will be no more walking for us next year. It really sucks. Hey were planning the volcanos for next Sunday too, maybe we can all go together, bet the kids would love that. :)

  11. Hope the sickie buggies are outta there for the weekend. LOVE the 5 finger prayer reminder, thanks for sharing! Have a super weekend! :)
