Lord Give me Strength....

See that picture on the left???? That's me this morning!!!

Nicholas is sick, really sick, and so we were up all night. I managed to fall asleep at 5am and then slept until 6:30am, I had to drag myself out of bed, it took everything out of me to get up and walk. After a quick jump in the shower, I came downstairs and started the coffee pot. It's FULL, full of that heavenly yummy shot of energy....I'm on my second cup already and it's hard staying awake.

Nicholas is laying on the couch, his favorite blankie clutched tightly in his hands. I keep hearing "I don't feel good mommy, my tummy hurts". He's already had some medicine for the fever, and his poor little voice is all croaky. It's going to be a LONG day!!!

I wrote another post below, while browsing through some of my favorite blogs, one of the ladies had talked about "what nourished her soul", so I decided to talk about what nourishes my soul and how the requisites for it have changed over the years. Would love to hear how things have changed for you all :)

I'm making this post a short one, I am tired, sick, cranky as all heck and I have a little one to take care of. Housework is waiting to be taken care of too, so I am going to get Nic back down for a nap and then get some things done around here.

I truly hope that you're all doing good and that this horrible season cold has not reached you. If it has, I'm sorry, I forgot to wipe down the monitor yesterday. You might want to give it a good wipe on your side too, these germs can be very sneaky.

God Bless,


The chicken we had yesterday was delicious, will post the recipe soon. As for today, I'm making Skillet Beef and Brocolli, and I'm also fixing a big ol' pot of chicken soup, nothing like a bowl of steaming soup to help us feel better :)

  1. your blog is truly a work of art. i bet your nicholas will sleep most of the day...so he can be up all night again tonight ;)
    lets hope not. i so know how those nights are! chicken soup sounds yummy!

  2. Sandra, hope your Nicholas feels better soon. It's so hard to have your little ones sick. Blessings...

  3. Oh, I am so sorry to hear that your little one is not feeling well.
    I hope he will be feeling better very soon and that you will be able to get some much needed rest. Take it easy today and don't expect to much of yourself.

    I saw that bread recipe this morning too but will probably make it tomorrow as I myself still don't feel well. Blah.

    Take care and Hugs,

  4. Don't forget to take a nap yourself. Sometimes mommies need them worse than the kids do!

  5. I hope you feel better soon.

  6. Oh Sandra, sos sorry to hear that you guys are sick. Sure hope that everyone feels better soon. Nothing is worse than our kids being sick when we don't feel good either.
    Big *hugs* coming your way!

  7. Praying you're both better very soon and you both have a good long sleep tonight!

  8. Hope you and your household get beeter soon...praying for you! Try to rest when you can...i so enjoy visiting you everyday...Blessings to you and yours...

  9. Poor you and poor Nicholas. I just hate it when the little ones get sick. And thanks a lot for that little promo on House. I was going to skip it and let hubby watch NCIS. Now I'll be sitting in the bedroom watching my other TV. Sigh...I love House.

    Thanks for your remarks on my "get your blog act together" post. I so envy people who never arrived at my situation. Knew I had to do something. I want to enjoy this but I want my life back, too.

    And thanks especially for the {{hug}}. :-)

  10. One other thing. While I was waiting for your blog to come up I looked at the list of your favorite movies in your profile. Planes, Trains and Automobiles is one of my all time ever favorite movies. Hysterical. I could watch that movie once a week and still crack up every time. :-)

  11. Sandra, that all sounds so icky, hope you all feel much better tomorrow! :)

  12. I am so sorry that you had such a rough night.
    I hope that everyone feels better tomorrow.

  13. I hope you feel better really, really soon, Sandra.

    I made your Mushroom Beef Stew for supper tonight and it was yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  14. Get well soon Sandra and yes I hope you found time to nap yourself! Laura

  15. Lord, bring your health and healing into this home. Give Your strength to Sandra.

    Sandra, I hope you have a restful day and take it easy!!



  16. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that Nicholas is sick. I hope he feels better! Same with you.

    I am so impressed with the changes you've been making to your blog. It's very pretty and well organized!

    I'm trying to organize a few things on mine as well, without messing up the beautiful design that Susie created for me. :)

  17. sorry to hear that you are all under the weather!! there's nothing fun about our babies being sick!!!

    i love all the changes you've made to your blog (they could not be new, I have been gone for almost 2 weeks) it is so beautiful - and so "fallish!"

    prayers for quick healing for you and yours.... :)

  18. Sorry to hear you've got the "sicks" on your house. We had it last week. Nap when your child naps - the housework will always wait for you. Chicken soup sounds yummy!

  19. Oh no. Poor little guy. Hope he feels better soon

  20. I hope you all feel better soon! I really enjoyed the L&O last night... Hope your Beef and Broccoli was as yummy as it sounds!

  21. I'm so sorry to hear you and your family are sick!! I would bring you over some chicken noodle soup if I could!
    Gentle (((HUGS))) and I hope you feel better soon.

  22. I'm with you in the sick club - the baby was so sick last night that we were going to take her to the hospital. Then her fever broke and she was able to sleep, but I am crazy exhausted today. But that's too funny - I was planning on making bread today, too!

  23. I hope you and your boy feel better soon... It's working its way through here too! ugghh.

  24. I hope your little one starts to feel better very soon. I'm a big 'Law and Order' fan. This year the original is lacking chemistry. I've been watching 'Law and Order: CI'. Now that's a great show.
