What the Week Has Held

I would love to report that EVERYONE is well however, that is NOT the case. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a very Happy 4th! We are all still working long hours and harvesting more fruits and veggies than we should be blessed with......praise the Lord!

I went to the eye doctor this week to find out that my eyes had each changed three points and finding out that new glasses would be around $400 + (the pair I want is actually $529), I will be getting my information and using Zenni optical (online) to purchase 2 pairs with sunshade clip-ons for less than $100!!!

I have a new endeavor going on; I have acquired a customer to buy numerous jars of my peach salsa and chow chow weekly. I am very excited about this as it will be a yearly thing and not just a summer thing. I made 54 pints of peach salsa Monday.

I have the sinus/throat yuckies once again and will be seeing the doctor tomorrow. I got our vehicle tags on Monday. We already had a farming tag for the Durango but opted to get one for the new truck as well.

Mason fell head first at daycare Friday onto black asphalt and I rushed him to the doctor since the blood under the skin was forming a weird pattern. He also has a gash on the forehead (there is also a huge bruised area) as well and a skinned nose. The exam showed no signaficinant damage. His leg was hurting only to got through numerous x-rays and blood work to find he has an infection. It was so bad by Friday night that he could not even walk. He had pink eye earlier in the week and passed it on to John, only to have it again this morning.

John (little) got up vomiting bile and and a little blood yesterday morning, it only got worse as the day wore on, so Hubby and I took him (my friend Connie, took care of Mason) to Children's hospital in Birmingham to the er about 5:30pm when nothing we were doing was working. After numerous doses of lab work and such , he has a tummy bug. He is better today and we are being very, very careful monitoring what he is eating and drinking and the amounts. Mason then got up with runny yuckiness this morning.

The Clorox wipes are in full force at the Mc household today (Lysol too)! We should own stock in those companies! LOL!

The boys will be having their pictures made Tuesday at school, Masonwill really have a shiner to smile about! LOL!

The only fireworks we saw were at 9pm last night on the way home from the hospital. John could not have his allergy meds last night due tot he tummy virus, so he and I were up and down most of the night last night. I hope tonight is better!

Hubby went to church today and I stayed with the boys. I took about an hours nap while they were napping, now, if I only had some energy!

We heard that the calls for interviews will start this week for the job hubby applied for. We also heard that they have narrowed it down to 41 out of 200 applicants, he is one of the 41!!!! Yay!!! Noe, they will narrow it to 7..........we are very hopeful! Please keep praying!

Have a wonderful week and I am missing blogging and my blog buddies but we are blessed to be able to do what we do (farming) and working so close with the Lord and our family! Hope to see you all soon!

Wow- so much to comment on, I don't know where to begin. Congrats on your yearly customer- that is awesome news! I hope those little ones are feeling better as I type this. Poor kiddos. We didn't see fireworks at all b/c they all were so late and we didn't want to keep the kids up that long.
I am praying for your hubby and the job! There sure were a lot of applicants..
love & hugs
