On a different note, KK has been battling staph infections. Yesterday they decided to lance one to test it and see what the deal is. I NEVER want to have to do that again. He SCREAMED!!!!!! I've never had one but I'm sure it's painful. I should probably mention, it was on his bottom so sitting down was not a very pleasant task for him. After fighting to get his prescription filled we came home and I gave him some pain medicine. This is how he looked after it kicked in.
And to end this.. I am going have my ultrasound this afternoon. We are hoping for a GIRL!!!!

I am going to try and be more faithful to menu planning. I make the plan and I try to stick to it but for some reason by the end of the week it just falls apart. I am going to start planning breakfast, lunch, dinner, morning snack, afternoon snack, and something for Piggy to bring for lunch. Good luck to me!!! :)

- I would forget OR
- The kitchen would be destroyed again and I would NEVER get a picture!
So.... without anymore delay here is my cleanER kitchen :)The pile of stuff on the cabinet all the way to the left is Piggy's.... It has been sitting there a while waiting for him to go through it. I moved all of the kids magnets to the side of the fefrigerator.. It looks so plain now, Adi says "It isn't pretty anymore" Anyways there it is.. I bet by tonight the 'short cabinet' will be covered AGAIN!

The first room I will work on is my kitchen. It may take me more than one day to get everything in order!! I am a little embarassed posting these pictures but I figured maybe I can 'embarass myself' into keeping it clean!!
The 'short cabinet' as we call it is the catch all area for EVERYTHING!! It's the first available space when you walk in the house so whatever is in your hands usually ends up there. Oh, and I have to mention.. Don't you just LOVE the paneling!! Not me, but we rent so there's really nothing I can do about it! :(
Sunday, July 13, 2008

Breakfast - Pigs in a blanket & fruit
Dinner - shrimp & butter sauce

Lately, I'm not sure if I have been doing these things to the best of my ability. With the no yelling challenge this week, I realized just how easily I lose it. And for some reason I also noticed that my house is a MESS!!! SO...... I think next week will be cleaning week! Time for some serious "summer cleaning"!

I managed to keep my cool today.. Hopefully tomorrow will be just as good!!!
Adi has been testing me daily by refusing to take a nap. I know she NEEDS one because by 5pm she is whiny and running into everything! When it comes time to take one though she can think of a million reasons not to stay in bed. By the time I get her to lay still it's time to wake up!!

If your kids are anything like mine they LOVE juice. There's a rule in my house, you have to drink a cup of milk with each meal if you want to have juice with your snack. I don't give them straight juice either... I cut it with water ALOT! My daughter is to the age where she gets upset if she sees me putting water in her cup before her juice. So..................... I bought 2 rather large pitchers. I take one can of Juicy Juice and divide it between the two. Then I fill them the rest of the way up with water. I make sure to do this when the kids are sleeping so they don't see!!! There you have it.... cut juice without the hassle!!

Last night was particularly bad. Around 12:30 he started again, so I decided to try and sleep on the couch with him. All of a sudden he got really stiff and started twitching. He sleeps with his eyes half opened half closed so I am not sure if he was awake or not. I couldn't get him to snap out of it. Today I brought him to the doctor, I will be calling tomorrow to schedule an EEG later this week to determine if it was a seizure or not. I hope they can get us in quickly, I know I won't be able to sleep until I have an answer.

I hope tomorrow is better. We have to venture out tomorrow morning to go to KK's P/T. Wish me luck!! :)
