May the Pox soon be lifted!

Alternate Titles:
  • Cabin Fever Anyone?
  • "With all the pillows in the house, why are you laying on MINE?" (Okay so I'm not so proud of this one)
  • Grocery List: LYSOL, LYSOL & LYSOL
  • Knock Knock.  Who's there? Atch.  Atch Who? God Bless You! (which btw, Kinley now fake sneezes...too cute).
  • When it rains it pours

Our house has been filled with the sickies!  I feel like the dead man walking, as I am the only one to not be sick yet *knocking on wood*.  It started off with Kinley running a low grade fever on Friday that turned into a horrible case of hand foot and mouth disease (which is essentially just a virus).  Then on Sunday night/Monday morning Abbey woke up with a sick stomach.  Then when Brady got home from school on Monday afternoon, he and Matthew both crawled into bed with body aches and fatigue.  I think everyone is on the mend although poor Itty Bitty has some serious blisters from her virus!  If you have a weak stomach, don't look at these pictures.
The blisters are on her lips, around her mouth and around her nose

The rash starts off looking like a heat rash...

...but then turns into blisters

This one is just for fun, so you can see how long her hair is getting!

And then September hit!

  • I remember a time when our week day evenings were all about homework, dinner, bath time and bedtime!
  • I remember a time when my vehicle rarely saw the week day's dusky evenings!
  • I remember a time when Itty Bitty spent more time on the CARpet than the CAR!
And then September hit.  It hit us HARD.  Gone are the days of my kids being in the same extra curricular activities.  When Abbey was little (before Brady was old enough to have any activities) she did gymnastics and later ballet.  When Brady was old enough to start some activities we enrolled them both in a soccer program.  They both had practice on the same night at the same time and had games on the same day (sometimes at the same time).   Then they both tried tennis for a summer...neither really liked it all that much.  Then the place they played soccer discontinued their program.  So we got them both into golf.  Again, same time, same place.  NO BIG DEAL.  Then my world came crashing to a halt or more like sped into warp speed mode.  Brady decided he HATED golf...I'm sorry did I say "hate" I meant to say despised...like fake a sudden stomach virus to get out of playing despise!  He missed soccer, he wanted to play soccer again, somewhere, somehow.  But Abbey, nope, she loved golf.  Has aspirations of playing on her middle school team.  Working towards college scholarships, she is!  And one day will play for the LPGA (or so in her mind). 

So here we are in September. Golf lessons on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Soccer on Mondays and Saturdays. Then we decided to throw in Cotillion for Abbey on Monday nights and Brady's guitar lessons on Tuesdays. And don't forget church on Wednesday nights. Then you throw in a random dentist/doctor/hair appointment on Thursdays and there goes my week and then my month. So as you can tell, this is why I haven't posted much and I will not be going out on a limb and saying I will try to do better, cause, frankly people, it just aint happening! I leave you with some random pictures!
