How I love thee....... not! Woke up this am exhausted with a sore breast that hurt to nurse. Took a look n sure nuff swollen red hot hurting red lines all that good stuff. a short time later my head started hurting and I started getting hot flashes followed by the chills followed by a wonderful fever. It hit 103.5 not too awful. Ob called in a prescription for me but that entails driving and I am to dizzy to do that. Plus I am feeling somewhat better. 800mg motrin kicked in now I am sweaty from the fever breaking. Breast still red n sore though not quite as bad. I still have the headache and weakness and am hot n sweaty. My fever is down to 100.5 though so its all good. Just gotta keep on nursing. Today was one of them late days for Kenny it is 9:42 pm and he is probably just now leaving the office maybe. I did manage to catch up all the laundry in the house though that got away over the last week of smoke. I just didnt feel like doing much of anything. But it is all washed dried folded and put away. Every darn item. Cay hada bloody nose at night and noone knew till the next am. So I have some blood drips in the bathroom to clean up. But not today. Bending over makes my head explode. Well at least feel like it. I want to whack all my hair off its making me hot n itchy n more sweaty. grrrr.. I can't wait till friday. Kenny has Friday off, but works Saturday. It will be so great to see Sher n the kiddos. I think I am rambling now and i'm not sure if anything I typed made any sense. But if not hey thanks for reading this far! Happy Monday! And the last day of June!

Had her first taste of solid food yesterday. We went by the instructions for a first serving. 1 tablespoon cereal mixed with formula. Well the girl is a food hog! After the 2nd bite she started yelling at us for more! She ate every bite of it and drank some formula in a bottle to rinse it down after every couple bites. to a total of the rice plus 1.5 or 2 ounces of formula (including what I mixed in). And she prob woulda eaten more if I let her. I literally scraped the bowl. And she was still lunging at it lol. Baby girl likes her some food. None of the other kids liked food so much this early. They couldnt stand it till closer to 1. But she may change her mind next time who knows. Just pretty nifty.

We started on our front patio/porch area we are going to put in. We got the blocks here for it and started to pull up the rocks/plastic that is there. Alot more rocks then we thought lol. Need a couple more barrels to put them in. So it is paused till we get them. It is going to look awesome when we are done. Just gotta figure out what kind of shade feature to put there since the roof doesnt hang over thatarea. Why, I don't know. Stupidity on the builders part is all I can figure.

::Stating the Obvious::
Onesome: Stating-- things clearly? In your job/vocation/school do you like to have everything spelled out in detail? ...or are you one of those people who does better with broad guidelines and a free rein?
I like details in most things.
Twosome: the-- food I miss the most is? (loaded question, but hey ...)
I don't miss any foods. I eat them lol
ETA: I lied I do miss 1 food Cold Stone Creamery. There isnt 1 near me anymore!
Threesome: Obvious-- to some, but not to others: what is something that seems obvious to you but others seem to miss? ...or how about something you just don't 'get'?
I don't get the lack of manners, kindness and caring in todays world. It saddens me to see commercials on tv trying to remind people to be compassionate and use there manners and be kind. They shouldnt need to be reminded.
How about you? When you're ready, post your answers in your own space, and leave a comment at The Back Porch so we can find you!

The front when we moved in
The front after we ripped out the evil bushes (aka before)
We still need to plant the plants, It was too hot and dry when we got that far so we will do it maybe this evening after the sun's behind the house. We need to get some more plants and a bigger bench. But man what a difference! Then we get to get hte other side done where the chairs and the big ol gerbera daisy is. We are going to pull out all the icky rocks and put a nice patio in with seating and maybe an umbrella or a pergola.. Looks great huh! Only took 32 bags of mulch lol.
posted by Kristina @ |1:31 PM|
We also got 1 of these
from the Home Depot when we were there. Because my veggies have aphids. We had to take 2 vehicles to depot (as 20 bags of mulch werent fitting in my car on any ol day)E and J ended up driving back in the truck with daddy. Which of course horribly upset C and K. who both proceeded to cry. So on the walk from the truck to my suv I told K she cold hold the lady bugs on the drive home. Which she thought was great. I told C he could help me let them go later on. So I get K buckled into her seat. Go to lay the bag of bugs on her lap and tell her how not to hold it. AND she FREAKED out. NO MOMMY NO I DON"T WANT THEM TO TOUCH ME! As she was giggling too. So I have her just hold the corner of hte paper on the top. since she didnt want to hold the netting either. (Lucky bugs) At this point she is kinda half freaked kinda got a low growly whine screetch every few seconds lol. BUT she was NOT going to NOT hold them. LOL So about halfway home she had enough and started freaking out I don't wanna hold em no mo mommy u take em take em take em take em. Silly girl.
So we had to keep them in the house untill the sun was no longer shining directly on the plants. Then we hosed the plants all off and cut the bag open and....
released em. Lady bugs everywhere. Kiara was helping for about 5 seconds then she ran screaming when a few flew towards her. She watched from the swings.. about 50 feet away.
untill they were all settled on the plants. Then she wanted to watch them walk around lol.
L though had no fear she just watched lol. There are still a bunch out there today. Eating away at the icky aphids.

sore stiff almost sunburnt, thats me lol... But it feels great! I will have some pics to post later on. But I just wanted to pop on and say Happy Monday! And tell you somehting! We were cruising round town Saturday evening looking for a new resteraunt. (there was none sigh) And all of a sudden J yells out from the back seat in the most excited happy voice.. "LOOK! DEAD PEOPLE!" I about jumped outa my seat! Me and Kenny book look all around and seeeeeeeeeee A cemetery.. yup theres dead people there huh... Then we promptly bust up laughing. And yesterday while doing some yard work (pics to follow) The kids where doing stand up comedy for us. Cay(to E who was trying to get next to him) Looks at his hand and says "Hey! Your not on the list!" And Cay's joke? Why did the chicken cross the road? To get hit by a car!

Thats how many tests this semester has.. So far I've got 1 down 28 to go.. I got a 100 on my first exam.. Hopefully I can get that on all of them!
I applied last night at BK. Pray they are in need of a night working employee who hasnt had a job in 10 years.
We are already 2 weeks into summer vacation. Evan has Day Camp next week, and Cay starts his pre K program July 7th to Aug 1rst. Then school starts Aug 18th. Seems like summer is already over!
It is hot today. Was already 85 at 1030 this morning. Suppose to be triple digits all weekend. At least it is suppose to be only mid 90s next week for day camp. Unlike last year when it was 104 all week.
The kids ask me if tomorrows the 4th constantly.. They don't quite get the whole 21 days thing lol... They want to see their cousins now. Anyway must go start reading book 2 in this class. At least hte heat is a good reason to sit n study.. right?

So I made the bread which smelled wonderful. I had to put it in 2 cake pans as I realized I only have 1 loaf pan lol. We let it cool a bit and I just cut a few slices out for the boys and I to try. It is the first time I have ever made or eaten it. They were
They wanted seconds! Except Cay who decided after eating half his slice that he didnt like it.. LOL But then lately he doesnt like anything.
looks yummy huh
It was delicious. I am all impressed with myself now lol. Oh I discovered these pics on my camera I wonder who coulda had it!

So my neighbor gave us some zucchini. Her garden is way bigger then mine already sigh. My plants just have flowers! Anyway so today I am trying my hand at zucch bread.. Smells delicious. Anyway the recipe said t grate 3 med zucchinis to get 3 cups.. HA as if. I now have about 5 eztra cups of shredded zucchini. Which I have no idea what to do with. I am thinking I will try to make fritters or some kind of baked something with them. We are having leftover enchiladas and mexican rice tonight. (Evan wants to make the rice, he found a recipe online and everything) So I will try n make whatever I do spicyish. Any ideas out there?

I just found out my Sil Sheri and her 4 kiddos are coming back to cali for 3 weeks this summer! We havent seen them since Christmas of 06! Wait till I tell my kiddos! Fireworks AND Cousins! All in the same day!
posted by Kristina @ |10:01 AM|
you asked how I fixedit? Well it wasnt really "broke". The rope near the handle had just melted andthe handle was gone , the string sucked into the coil. I just fiddled with it till I found the end of the rope and then managed to get it back through the hole then put a new handle on it. It still has too much loose rope. Just a little less then before. But I think It may be too short to reach the hot parts now. I never had to unwind it so it is the same pull and stuff as before. But from all the research I did I know how to fix it if it did need reroped. Cause I rock. Kenny started it up last night so we know it works. Though I think it needs a new spark plug and air filter. It has moments of smokiness.

::Work Hard and Play Hard::
Onesome: Work?-- Work! Summer jobs: how about the worst one you've ever had! ...or maybe the most interesting one? You decide ...
I am pathethic sorry.. None of my jobs have been awful or interesting.
Twosome: "Hard" and-- "Tight"? Words take on new meanings all the time. ...used to be both those words were compliments; now it appears "sick" is a good thing (according to the lexicon of the local fourteen year-old). What have you heard lately that took you a minute to figure out. I mean, like "bad" is still "good", right? Tight, man!
the izzle words fozizzle
Threesome: Play Hard?-- What is your idea of "Summer Fun"? ...and no, walking on the beach doesn't count for this one!
Camping/Swimming/Fishing/hiking... Not that I ever get to do any of those things but they are my idea of Summer fun.
How about you? When you're ready, post your answers in your own space, and leave a comment at The Back Porch so we can find you!

It is indeed Saturday.. I think. With the kids out of school my entire week is a big ol blur. I couldnt tell you which day was which for anything. I did indeed run up to the store last night with L. So thats done. I have some books to take back to the library but Not sure if i will get to it today. My brain fugg is about gone. I am not sure how much of the last few days I remember lol. I am still waiting on my book shipment from school. Hopefully today. They shipped it out 2 weeks ago! I expect it in my mail box every day the last few days. And nothing! It is rather annoying.

No picnic at the park for us today. We ran up to walmart this am to get tp and a few munchies to go on the picnic with. I pull into a parking spot and retch goes Kiara. yup she threw up. So I start the car back up n off we go on home. I suppose it was better then if it was in the store! So good timing on her part. But still. I guess when Kenny gets home I will run up n get us some basics.. Now to try n figure out what to make for diner.
BTW. I have officially applied at all the 24 hour stores I could think of. SO if you could think of me when you say your prayers that i get a job that would be really great.

I was up coughing till midnight or so last night as Kenny said. But it wasn't a phlegmy cough or anything it is more of a sore dry scratchy annoyed throat cough. I finally caved and sucked down some Robitussin cough n cold. Which seemed to of done the trick! And Mom Leila is "beautiful perfect and wonderful" according to her dr. She dropped a little on the percentile chart but all my kids did and its genetics. He thinks shes the cows cream. And the droolmonster hero who will drool any and all bad guys and aliens to death. By the time he was done inspecting her she was drooled from mouth to diaper.. Ahhh teething. Anyway I went for a walk again today with my new buddy. Longer then yesterday .. yeah me. =) Apparently there is a 4th of July block party around the corner on my street! And we have been invited to join. I never knew it (as I can't see that part of the street from my house and ha we never drive around that night just sir in the yard n set em off! So that will be great fun. Tomorrow we are going to walk to a nearby park and have lunch there with the kids. Will be great fun. I need to take Evans Sax into the shop so it can get its routine maintenance. Which will take 2 or 3 weeks. I need to get supplies to make a Cub O matic box for the end of year advancements this coming Tuesday. Sunday we are going to spend a couple hours cleaning tables at the vet hall as our community project. (there are like 100 tables) I ended up not going to apply last night as ha I was all cold headed ya know dizzy twirly and unfocused. So we shall go tinight for sure! I gotta get it all done so I can get down to the important part of waiting and stressing and praying they need someone and it is me. Man I tried sop much last night before to calm my cough. cough drops vapor rub, a vicks vaporizor. I even put some vicks n my feet and covered in socks! but I guess since it isnt a phlegm cough it didnt help. I drank water I sprayed chloroseptic.. sigh PITB! I despise being sick. Anyway today I plan on resting on thecough and hoping I feel better! The house is straightened up beds are made. I should do some laundry but man it looks to heavy to lift. thats sad lol I will get all the laundry caught up tomorrow if I don't get it done today. I just hate folding.. hate it.

::So, Ya'll like Music, -eh?::
Onesome: So-- what if everyone else does it?!? I'm different and I'm going to do it my way! Heh, what is that for you? ...the peanut butter and banana sandwich? ...tie-dyed seat covers for the car? ...or maybe an unusual sport? I like pb and grilled cheese sandwhiches myself. I don't think theres much differnt about how I do things. I am patheticly boring sorry.
Twosome: Ya'll-- gonna' be catchin' any big ol' trout this year? ...any fishing people out there on the porch? Hey, even watching on TV counts for something... I LOVE to fish! and release. I don't eat fish but my family does.

Had her 4 month checkup yesterday. She is uhmmm 11 lbs 14 oz and uhmmm 23 1/4 (or half can't think) inches tall. She got 4 shots and some liquid vaccine. She is sad and whiny and yes the dr confirmed it teething. 'He said she will prob have 2 teeth within the next month. She has a stuffy nose. Remnants of the cold she has shared with me, and kiara. Though I seem to have it worse! Kiara only has the stuffed nose. I on the other hand have the swollen congested light headed head the stuffed nose sore throat cough and other random dizzyness. joy ... I went for a walk this morning me, my 5 kids and my friend Cristine and her 2 boys (D was in Kinder with J and his little bro K) who live around the corner from us. We are going to walk every morning or every other morning to get some excercize in. I oent forever at the scout hut today. Lord they know what days to pick to bug ya ta death! Sick me rowdy summer kids and they all want to talk to me. I have 3 loads of wash on my bed to fold and put away but every time I look at it my head wibbles. Leftovers for dinner to be honest not sure I can stand up long enough to cook anything. Been a tiring day. I have applied all over tarnation n back for a job and am going in tonight to apply in person at 2 or 3 other places. I will drug myself first so as to appear coherent. Wish me luck!
