getting back in the "work"
I get up about 3 am to let the cat out and use the restroom. As I am "freshening up" I hear a some one coughing. Oh my word..... that is not coughing. I look out the door to see my daughter barfing over the top bunk of her bed. My son sleeping below, unaware and the dog below, thinking it is raining mana from heaven! I am in shock and instantly call the barf patrol.....Rick. I escape into the computer room. Minute by minute tick by, for me, in horror. If anyone knows me, I in complete and total fear of barf!!! I need to keep the dog in with me so he does not help any further. After much time of cleaning and disinfecting, C gets a nice clean bath and is put into a comfy warm nest on the couch. Then it was onto the dog. Luckily I had not gotten to washing him that night. He needed it before bed. He had "helped" me with the dishes and got maple syrup and all over his head and ears. This had now hardend into a nice crust. So, I got the dog bathed as Rick did the clothes. We finally sat down at about 5 am.
What does Rick say next???
Well, as long as we're up................
Sunday, Me TOTALLY ill. Sicker than a dog. S got ill, C is still ill. D is not doing so hot. Rick no problems yet.
Monday, slept literally all day, evening, and night.
Tuesday, cancelled everything and slept til 3pm. Had a better evening. Over looked the house.
This morning, Much better. A little wibbly but doing fine. I even tackled a bit of the house.
Now on to the Volunteer job tonight!

This is something that has rocked our little family. We are so so green. But after our 10 year old was in tears over how awful we are to mother earth, we have now taken even more steps to be green. We are even looking at a solar panel to power the zoo. I have purchase reusable bags for shopping. We are going to set up an indoor compost bin to go along with our outside bin. We do recycle, but now we will be doing even more. It feels good, but somewhat exhausting to think about. I am in the process of making a chart of how we are going greener so the kids and Rick and I can be reminded of what we do and what more we can do. K~

Here we go again. I went for a follow up ultra sound yesterday. It, the big black area was still there. Not a hematoma. Hmmm. So I needed another round of biopsies. I chatted with the doctor. He told me they do it the same here as at the hospital. No knock out drugs. So.... I had to do it again. NOT FUN! Of course he said the chances of me bleeding again like I did the first time was very slim. Well, sure enough. I bled all over and had to endure the breast press, YET AGAIN! OUCH. I don't know how a breast can withstand that kind of torture! I mean really. This time, however, they got 4 samples. So now I wait. He didn't feel that it resembled the big C. Here is hoping and praying. K~
