my life...

Dad has been kicking his legs!! He sat on the edge of his bed yesterday for 13 minutes. He was able to support his own weight and kick his legs as exercise, along with other exercises! 13 minutes!!! Three weeks ago he could not wiggle his toes, and now he is kicking his legs!!! I am just so excited about his progress!!! We are going to Wichita for a quick visit this Friday/Saturday, so I'm excited to see him.

I have been feeling icky for a few days. My sinuses and head have been aching, and my nose has been running! I used an entire box of tissues on Sunday...and they WERE NOT Puffs Plus, so my nose feels a bit like sandpaper now. I guess my body knew that I was going to have this dried up nose that feels like it's going to fall off...so it decided to grow a new one. I have the world's largest ZIT on the side of my nose...EWWW! I have been tired and cranky for a while now. I'm not a patient mommy. I tend to whine just as much as they do, and complain, and yell a lot. I hate myself when I'm like this. So...last night I got the kiddos to bed at 8:30, and I was in my bed by 8:45. 8:45! I cannot remember the last time I went to bed so early! Even with all that sleep, this afternoon I fell asleep while Bethany napped, for at least an hour! You'd think I'd be caught up by now...but I'm still sleepy! I need to go to a meeting at church this evening, but I'm planning on hitting the sack before 10!
Ok...enough complaining...off to the meeting. Have a great night all!

Andie, I am so glad your dad is doing better!!!
Sorry :( about your cold/sinus stuff though. (GO GET PUFFS!!)
Just baby yourself as much as possible. REST. Eat light--only soup and drink lots of fluids...(do I sound like a momma or what!---I can't seem to help myself!)
Be blessed sweet friend!
By the way, I hope you don't mind, but I added you to my blog side bar as a favorite place to visit, makes it more convenient for me. Get better quick!
