On the 12th day of 2011 . . .

On December 31st I had grandiose ideas for the New Year.  I had a marvelous list of Resolutions ready to begin!

This is the 12th day of 2011.  Those grandiose ideas were quickly obscured by 

12 pots of hot tea 
11 episodes of "Little House on the Prairie"
10 days of coughing  
9 days of fever
days of breathing treatments
7 days of wheezing 
6 co-pays paid 
prescriptions filled
boxes of Kleenex
3 snow days 
2 nights that Chris was out of town 
and an addition being built on our house . . .
Ella, Ava and Jack are feeling much better.  Whew! 


  1. Oh Amber I hate that everyone was sick! You are supermom. Give them my love and I'm so glad they are feeling better. But, the bright side is, at least it got you to blog!!

  2. ugh! isn't that just life? i think the longer i am a parent the better i get at being ok in the mess!!! it is never quite how we plan it, huh? but it helps when you have friends to laugh at it all with you:)

  3. Hi Amber!
    Your sister just told me this morning that you have blog, so I am stopping in to say hi. Um, Hi! (I guess 3 "Hi's" should do it) And since it just became very evident that I need to go change a diaper, I'll say 'bye.
