What a week

What a week! since last week we been so busy, and when I say we, I really mean just me! :D
Having few hour in the morning helps a lot. Monday I was so busy I can't remember what I did, I just remember going out for some veggies.
Tuesday I had to do few things in the morning that I even forgot my Dr's appointment in Cromwell, I had to run after Samantha got home to the doctor's, just because they call me, anyway, I had to go and pick up the fundraiser orders, that I didn't have time to do because I had to stop in BJ's and get some food; I had some starving people over here; then to fix up the turkey, that took me a while since the beast was frozen stiff; AWWWW!! anyway somehow when I put my head in the pillow I was out cold .
Today I went to the schools for the fundraiser that is not doing well, (hopefully next week we'll do better); then I came home to organize the few orders I got, and I'm not done yet. then I had to cook dinner before I go to the meeting at church, when I come back i will have to feed the oven with the turkey :D get it? , clean a little and go to bed.
Men think they can do many things, but the fact I wake up 10 minutes after he leaves in the morning, doesn't really mean I sleep till late. Steven wakes up at 6 am to get ready to go to school, and that is something; the kid is very hard to deal with. At 7am he leaves to school, at 8am I get Samantha ready for the bus that picks her up at 8:45, then I start cleaning the mess. . . can they do that? well life is not easy and to run a home is not different from going to work every day, lets trade and see if they can do it!!!!

Kids are out to School

After getting up at 6:55 am and rush to get Steven ready in 5 minutes, believe me it was amazing we did it. Steven is a kid who takes all the hot water from the tank to take a shower, then he sits on the shower and let the water get on him, no soap, no shampoo, if he gets shampoo on him he puts it on the front and top of his head but forgets about the back of his head, it is frustrating to see him take a shower. Anyway he got ready couldn't find his shoes, didn't want to brush his teeth, and went out at 7:05 am the bus got his 5 minutes later.
1 out 1 to go
I try to get Samantha up at 7:45 and she cried all the way out, she didn't want to go to school, am I a bad mom because I send her to school when she didn't want to go? she said that his friend Walter is mean with her, who knows maybe he is. Well she finally got on her feet, we took the dog for a walk and talk about been good at school, then she left fine. I called her teacher and told her that she didn't want to go to school and had rough morning, just in case she still upset when she gets there Mrs Rupe will know why. I know she'll be fine, but deep inside scares me to see her crying before she goes to school, it makes me feel worry, and very concern of her well being. Only Samantha knows what is going on when she is not around me or dad, I just pray every day that she will talk to me if something is wrong.
2 out the morning is mine :D

Samantha Is Better

Samantha is Doing much better now, Her fever is down and she is taking the medicine by herself, we don't have to make her cry to get her to take it. she went to school today, even though I was worry, she did fine. She is not eating much either, that really worries me, since she is a good eater. The blessing she received on Sunday help her so much. I really appreciate that wonderful tool.
I'm running a fund raiser (two actually) and today i passed the last 317 books to the school, WOW, it took me one hour to do it, and the whole weekend to put the package together. The school is getting a good amount of money from this fundraisers. I just need to clear out my desk and organize myself a little bit more. so I won't confuse the two fund raisers, I'm sure it will be alright, since I have my sister in law running the finances from both schools, She has a degree in accounting, that will help a lot.

Hello again

Hello there! this weekend was very busy, Samantha my daughter is sick with a high fever, (102.8) and she is miserable, poor thing. we try to give her Tylenol but it's a big fight because she doesn't like it. I got some chewable from the pharmacy and guess what? she is not taking them either. We try to give her also feveral but is not effective; we just keep trying sadly we had to make her cry to give her the medicine, we'll just keep trying.
She also had a blessing today, very nice one, from Leo and Ray, I enjoy having good friends who will get out of their way for me. We will keep praying for her to get better soon.

you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it
