(Playing with my camera yesterday. I had my BIG HUGE lens out, trying to figure it out once again! Gosh I love to take pictures, and I am soooo glad for digital. I can snap, snap, snap away!)
Matt had the homework today! WHEW! He is tired of it! SO, we are trying to work with him to get it done. He is definitely challenged by 1st grade. He needs lots of help....... I sure hope it turns out well.
Andy is done lickity-split with his homework.....
Megan is working with the dominoes building stuff. She thinks she would build a baseball field! Tee Hee!
Okay, Jeffey is on his way to work at 1800. I got off early, at 2:00! YIPPEE! The train traffic is down today. SO, tomorrow it will be hell to pay! I am working on many projects right now. All in the thought process yet! I think I have my Christmas card all sketched out for the final one! It has been of great debate for me.... I think I should focus more on the rest of the scrapbooking projects I am soooooo far behind on. It seems that every time I am in the creative mood, there is a mess to clean up here! YIKES! Ohhh, yea. I am back on the 9:00 a.m. job. For permanently temporary! Tee Hee!
Okay, lots to do....... Never ending crap! (Yep, I need a vacation!)
Take Care, Hugs...................2U!

Okay, everyone in this house is on anti's! Yep, I think that we should be healthy by next weekend. I hope, that is. It is Meggie's 3rd and Jeffey's 40th B day Party. SO, we had better be better! I have bumped onto the 9:00 am job now, and will be on it every day. Jeffey is on the extra board, with no set schedule. We think this works out with the kiddo's.... sleeping in their own beds and ect... Okay, not much else happening around here. I am in the mood to make something crafty! YIPPEE!!!! Hi-ho, off to work I go.... hugs, to U.....................................
Yep, yesterday, Matt had the fever & sore throat.... got antibiotics immediately! So, he is better, but not enough for school today. Megan is better and been on aniti's since Tuesday. Jeffey woke up with swollen glands, and dull throb in his lower back. So, I will be getting some anti's for him.... He went to work for now. Me, well, I am better, but the lip. It is slow to heal. I am putting some stuff on it regularly, but it bleeds and cracks.... Oh well! Okay, yesterday, Jeff & I went to the eye Dr. I t seems that I need glasses for reading and night vision. Yep, I thought my books were getting closer to my face! So, I picked a pair of "sassy" glasses, and sunglasses. You know I can't live without sunglasses! So, next week, they should be in. Then, I should have a "clearer" understanding of the word... Well, off to clean up the messes..... and laundry..... then work later (2 times out) Quote of the day:

(Fall Foliage at Breezy Point, Crawford. From train, yesterday.)
YAY! YAY! YAY! Throat is much better, lip is somewhat better! Man I feel for those folks who get this stuff regularly! It isn't an easy battle to fight! Anyhow, we are busy with dishes and house recovery cleaning. An implosion happened here last week. Now, it is clean up time. It seems my kids have a hard time even flushing the toilet! GEEZE! Crack-down time! K, got my Christmas card all sketched out! Ready to make 60? YIPES! Better start early,huh? I guess Chrstmas cards are my little gift to everyone whom I haven't seen or contacted for quite some time. I know I LOVE HAND MADE ANYTHING! It warms my heart whenever I get something made from the heart. Recently my Ma and I went to Rapid and got fabric to make baby blankets with..... secretly she had plans for one for me, too. Oh how I have loved having that snuggly blanket this past week. Since my Ma could NOT help me out. (I didn't want her getting strep before her flight to Oregon for a wedding.) Thank HEAVENS for Mom's snuggly blanket! I love it! -Everyone needs a wooby, no matter what age- Have a great day everyone, it is a beatuiful fall one!
I won't gross-you-out with a pic this morn. as I nearly got sick just looking in the mirror at my lip. Holy Cow! It sure hurts. As for the throat, it is better. Just uncomfortable. The antibiotic has had a few side-effects on me..... diarrhea, and an extremely painful, sore roof of my mouth. GREAT DIET PLAN! Huh? I think I will run with that..... My gentle, kind hubby took me to Chadron to full fill my longing for some Chinese. The boys went to the football game with Lisa & her crew (BLESS YOU, Girlfriend!) So, Meg & I were treated to some Daddy time. He actually said he needed to get out of town, as he has been working a lot as I have not been able the past three days. You see we work on the same board, and if one is gone, it doubles the workload onto the other two. BUT, I can't help I had a near-death experience with Strep. He understands, but is tired. So, we had a great meal of the buffet, and came right home. Jeffey went to bed, I stayed up waiting on the game-goers. Meggie was busy playing her leapster, and keeping herself occupied. So, we had a quiet night. Back to work tomorrow...... Hope no one sees this massive lip!
Good Morning! ***Coffee Cheers*** MUFF! Well, this weekend we had some time together with a little work in between. I got groceries in CHadron on Sat. What fun that is to by yourself! UGH! I really hate to unload them all..... The boys help some with hauling, but not without threats. Anyhow, I worked the 3:00am job Sunday morning, then we headed off for the Bluffs to go coat shopping. It's a good thing that we took the kids, as I would have bought them too big of coats and snow pants! We ate at Applebees, and they had HOT wings.... YUCK! Andy seems to like to eat them with his dad! Funny little man! His tongue got HOT and he drank up his pop too quickly and ran out at the crucial "hot tongue" point! I laughed...... Andy got his first love note this past week..... He shared it with me. I decided that it was scrap-worthy! Anyhow, it said "I love you Andy, and I want to kiss you!" This note featured a lovely bit of art, as Andy was portrayed with yellow hair! TOOO CUTE! I promptly told him that he shouldn't kiss girls because they have LOTS of yucky germs! He then told me," Mom, your my best friend!" AWWWWWW...... I was moved to tears. Sweet little man is growing up too quickly! hugs to ......................................U!
Okay, I checked into the lap-band surgery and the insurance will pay for it. BUT, the prerequisites must be met. Those being: 100 lbs overweight, 40 BMI, AND a Dr.s observation of 6 months of weight loss struggle. So, the plan is to get started with the DR. observation. I am thinking that I can loose the weight that way. I will be held accountable. I have a bad thing.... called stress-eating. I eat to feel better subconsciously. UGH! UGH! UGH! It is so hard being me...... Otherwise, headed to CHadron to get groceries, and ect. I hope you all have a great day! Jeffey is going to work, and I will later today..... Take Care, hugs...........................to U!
(Meggie and Ashley @ Kountry Loft Garden Aug. 2008)
I feel much better today. Less stress................... Had a nice evening last night. That helped me with my anxiety.
Today, Meggie and I are cleaning. She thinks she needs to mop, vacuum and dust with me. So, I think that for her birthday she should have some Meggie size cleaning stuff...... And a baby car seat, she says.
Jeffey went to work at 1030, I am due to work at noon. UGH! Oh well, gotta pay the bills.
WHew? Don't I say that quite often? Gosh, life is so hectic! Okay, today, Matt has therapy in Chadron @ 1000, then I have meeting here in Crawford @ 1400. Then who knows what? Relax............... Breathe easy.....................Enjoy the scenery................................... Gosh, isn't it a beautiful fall day??????????????????????????????
Okay, been super busy with life. We had school all week, which is exhausting for little Meggie. But, she LOVES it! She paints almost every day! Andy is busy with playing football at recess with his buddies....that's all we hear about. Mattey, loves Mrs. Buecker, and has not complained one bit! Loves the dino theme she is using this year! Jeffey, work, work for him. Yep, life is passing us by..... Okay, today duck float in the park. Then to Chadron for RJ's birthday! Yipee! Then work for me. UGH!
