Prayers for Sarah Please!
I have made such amazing friends through my blog and one of them is Sarah, she's just an amazing lady with so much to offer, she has thought provoking posts, laugh out loud posts and those that bring tears to your eyes....needless to say I just love her to death.
Sarah's come down with a case of Shingles, let me tell you it's painful and it's horrible. I distinctly remember my stepmom going through the same when I was about 12 or 13 years old and it was just horrible for her. So please, say a prayer for Sarah, I'm sure some of you know her from "A Bend in the Road".
I'm a little on the off side today, my allergies came in full force again, it's this pet dander that's really getting to me. I already used Nasonex but it makes me a little dizzy and gives me headaches, I swear I have no luck with these allergy medicines, so I'm hoping it all goes away within this week, wouldn't it be awful to be moving and driving for days feeling this way???
I know I'll be pushing through today and trying to get things done when all I really want to do is climb into bed and take a long long nap, if only my kids would cooperate, but I doubt I'll get them back in bed before 8pm tonight.
Thank you for the ideas on easy meals while moving, it's definitely going to help to have things organized and as easy as possible. The next 2 weeks we're going to be sorting through things and making sure they're in the right rooms so that when the movers come we don't end up with toys in the bathroom boxes (don't ask).
I have to tell you, I finally got through all the menu plan participants last night, all 112 of them, yes I stopped at 112 because everytime I refreshed the page there seemed to be someone new. I don't know, I think it's great to have big of a response but good grief, where do you find the time to visit everyone???
Since it's summer, the kids tend to become bored, so I decided to go online and search for a bunch of things for them to do, thereby completely removing the "I'm Bored" words from their vocabulary.
So here is what I found, hopefully it will help some of you out there with bored kids at home:
How about some "letterboxing" with the kids....or a Treasure Bottle (just love the Family Fun site and mag)
PBSkids.org is another fun site with so many great ideas, just look at this City built out of recycled materials....or maybe some Cauldron Bubbles or some Recycling paper?
I also found a page full of Paper Toys to make.
I saw another blog where she came up with a list of things to do for the summer, it was so cute and the title itself was hilarious "60 ways to leave your mother alone" LOL....go on over and read it, I've saved the link myself and will use it once we're done with our move to Arizona.
So there ya go, don't ever say I don't contribute to the blogging community somehow LOL
I have laundry to put away, yes I know I've been slacking off on that, I just wish the Laundry Elves would come and do that for me, it's not too much to ask is it???
I also need to go see what's for dinner so that I can prepare, thaw or whatever is needed for it.
Hope you all have a wonderful day, God Bless,
