So I just want to record some of the funny, adorable and disgusting things John has done lately.
1) Tonight he said to me "Mommy I want to go see God. You kow the guy who is the King."
2) I took the kids to Red Lobster for dinner one night. When I told John where we were going he said "yeah, I want to eat turtles." I ordered him popcorn shrimp and asked the waiter to call them turtles. John was satisfied and he loved his turtles. Then he requested to go have turtles for his birthday dinner a few weeks later.
3) While I was playing guitar hero with some friends, he found an Elmo guitar and came to play with us. He really thought he was playing and totally ricked out.
4) I took the kids bowling during spring break. I noticed John eating something, and ihadn't given him anything. When i asked him what he was chewing he said it was gum. When I asked him where he got it he pointed under the bowling alley counter! Gross.
5) In a parking lot he picked up a pile of dog poop and asked me "what's this?" even grosser than the gum!
6)He cut his finger on something today. When I asked him what happened he said "daddy bit me. He needs to be nice." Funny because daddy is deployed!

Yes, I know, i have been slacking on the whole bloggong thing. It all started when Luke was hospitalized the first week of december (he's fine now). Then MIke deployed the second week of December. And then after that there is no excuse, I have just been busy... and lazy. So to catch up...
Christmas was great. The kids and I had an aewsome morning opening presents and playing with new toys. then our curch family came over for Christmas dinner and entertainment. Entertainment mainly consisted of playing Dance Dance Revolution and Lego Batman on the playstation. All in all is waws tons of fun, minus the fact that my husband could not be here with us.
Also, i am dog sitting for a lady at work and her stupid dog killed our pwet rabbit Thomas. What a loser!!! Mike and I our really upset. Mike has now turned from a dog lover to a dog hater. He really loved that rabbit and so did I.
Really that's all the interesting things I can think of right now. My life is really boring, but is a good way, honest.

So I went back to work this week. They gave me a new position, which is much better, and it works out perfectly. A spot opened in the nursery, so I get to be with Luke all day! I feel so much better not having to leave my newborn. John and Kara didn't go to daycare until they were older, so it just wasn't as hard to leave them, but I was so dreading leaving Luke.
I can't say my first week back to work was easy though. Being at home for six weeks I got occustomed to not being on my feet all day. Working in the nursery will definitaly help with weight loss! Then on Thursday my boss fired four people! I don't really know what for, but i don't care too. If I don't know that means I wasn't involved and that is all right with me. I don't need to know all the gossip. So friday was really crazy, because one of the girls who was fired was the teacher in the nursery with me. And she was still in the process of familarizing me with all the babies schedules. So I really just had to wing it on friday, and it really kept me on my toes. I think I did okay, at least I hope I did. All the children went home fed, clean and happy so I guess it was a success. On Monday we will have an additional two teachers missing because their hubby's are coming home for R&R. We'll see how that works out...

So for those of you who don't know, I had Mrsa (a nasty bacterial infection) and I passed it along to John. thank God he is the only other person in my house who got it from me. Well, I got rid of mine, through alot of really annoying treatments. But poor John hasn't been able to get better. He had been on a topical antibiotic for 7 days, but is still getting new infections. Mrsa comes out as very painful skin infections. Most will go away on their own, others get super infectied. Well, he has one on his leg that got super infected, so Mike took him to the emergency room yesterday. I was so worried they would want to drain it, like they did to mine. It is a very painful process of the doc slicing the infection open, squeezing out all the puss and then packing the wound to make sure it doesn't close. If it closes the infection can still fester in side and become worse. My fears came true and they had to drain the infection. Four people had to hold him down while they did it. And he has to go in everyday for a few days and get the packing changed. Now his leg is all bandaged up and he walks around with this little limp. I feel so bad for him. I know first hand how much it hurts... especially when they repack it. Now he is back at the emergency room with Daddy getting it changed. He doesn't want me to go with him, he just wants Daddy. I think because Daddy is the one who took him yesterday when it all started. Please pray for my little boy. Pray that the new antibiotics with take away the infection soon. And pray that he isn't in to much pain. Thankyou.

Update on Stella...

Stella has returned home safe and sound!!! Kara is the happiest little girl in the world right now. Let's just pray the dumb cat isn't pregnant...


For those of you who don't know Stella is our cat, more specifically, Kara's baby. She is an outdoor/indoor cat who always comes home. But three days ago we let her out for the day and we haven't seen her since. This morning we had to break the news to Kara, who hadn't yet realized Stella wasn't around. She broke into to tears, her heart was broken a nd mine broke for her. I even started crying. So please everybody pray that Kara's kitty comes home. She is completely devistated.This is not the first pet we have lost. In August our puppy Tonto ran away and we have yet to see him either. So the loss of Stella is even harder for the kids. But we still have the rabbit Thomas... I think only because he is caged...
