The Week in Review

For those of you involved in the coupon train, I did NOT get to mail out this week. I will have them out next week. Also, we will be welcoming Vanessa to the train this weekend. Watch for details via email.

Tuesday I worked, went to the market and was just plain tired. I also lost part of my load of peaches (first time in 16 years). A tow truck pulling a big rig almost hit us in the tail end. As I was turning (a bit quicker than usual), the peaches went sliding off of the boards. We had to pick them the middle of a busy highway, thankfully some of the other farmers came out and helped.

Wednesday I worked all day. I also shelled peas (they were given to me).
I also had a surprise visitor at my parents. I had not seen him in 8 or 9 years. Monkey started with a bad cold.

Thursday I worked all day and also went to a new market and love it! Tiger started with a bad cold.

Friday at 5am we had the boys at the er at Children's Hospital. I had slept in the floor all night and Tiger could not breath well laying down. They are home and now I have the cold as well as them. We all just have Upper Respiratory infections.......aka bad colds. We stayed home and hubby went to the VFW and brought home bbq. He also helped my parents out at their work.

Today I am here and we are all a little better. Off work again and trying to rest.

The boys have done well with preschool and are making great friends. We can already tell a great improvement in Monkey's speech. Both the boys are going potty on a regular basis (school and home). They have been rather clingy when I leave them at school, but I think it would be better if they were not sick.

I hope you all had a great Fourth and Happy belated Fourth of July to you! God Bless us and this wonderful country!!!

Have a great weekend!

Hope you are get over this quickly. Glad that you weren't hit from behind. You mentioned your son's name in the post. I thought I would mention it in case you wanted to edit it. I have no clue when I will be able to come down. We have my best friend that is a missionary in Papua New Guinea coming Thursday, hosting a SS party the next weekend, and then leaving for our cruise the next. I might be able to come during the week one of those weeks depending on what projects are going on around the house. I know not this week, so will try to work it with you later.

HI Marva, thanks for the prayers. I hope you all feel better fast. Also bravo on potty trained boys! You are awesome!! From what I here, boys are really hard to potty train.

Hi Marva! Great news on the potty training. My ds was a tough one to
train. No worries about the coupons. I hope you have a very nice Sunday and get some rest in somehow!
