That about sums it up...Tired! I am so tired after spending several hours Wednesday night at the ER with Zachary. Then a Dr's appt the next day. Holding him and feeding him all day and all night for 3 days now. He is seeming a little happier and crankier at the same time! He doesn't seem so sick he can't move, but now he's feeling lousy and acting on it, as a 10 month old does. I feel so bad not knowing what's wrong. He has "nothing" wrong according to the urinalysis, chest x-ray, most of the blood work and an exam. Yet he has been having high fevers and is so lethargic he wasn't moving off me. The UA showed some dehydration and blood and bilirubin, which are signs of a UTI. Why it's not showing up is beyond me! I just hate that they poked his arm/hand 4 times and did a catheter. Poor baby got tortured!!! There's still a blood culture and another virus check that had to be sent out, so we'll be seeing what the results of those are, hopefully, on Monday.
We also have some stomach flu's going around. Making lots of upset tummies! It doesn't seem to be lasting long thankfully.
We haven't been getting much encouraging news from the realtors and auctioneer. So it doesn't look like we'll be selling our house 'til spring. Not too big of a surprise, but a disappointment nonetheless! We have no idea what our future holds, be we know Who holds the future!
We have been doing pretty good with figuring out what we're doing with school. Getting it done! We got the boys Math DVD's so I think that will really help out. Not having to explain so much, and being able to use that time with the younger ones, I think will be a real blessing. The kids seem to be liking what we're using too. I found a Bible program FREE online that I want to use. I just need to get hooked up to a printer. I am doing History and Science combined and the kids are loving it. It'll be good to relearn some of it myself! I love History! I like science when it's simple too, but when it get's into the harder, middle school/high school grades I stop liking it so much : )
My house is really a complete wreck. I am really going to have to get in gear to get it clean. It would be really helpful to know what we were doing as far as moving, but I'll just have to organize away until I know for sure. I still can't do much, holding Zachary constantly. So it may be a day or two before I get really started on anything.
I went on the Vision Forum website and made myself a wishlist... It's very LONG! VERY LONG! There are so many good books out there! I am going to have to just get some at the library and used book stores I think. If I sell my diapers I think I might get a couple off there though. We'll see.
Speaking of diapers, that's part of why I need to get the house cleaned, so I can focus on getting some diapers made. That and quilts for Jason and Makenzie, and Emily soon too! So much to do and so little energy to do it.
My sister asked me to be accountability partners for exercising (and eating healthy I think?) So I think I'm going to do that with her, if she still wants me to. (Do you? :) I wasn't sure if I could cause I couldn't find the stuff I wanted to use to exercise. (ie..videos, straps..) But I found them and want to get started. Now to find a time to do it... Can't do it with kids around very well, so I'll have to figure something out...
Well, Zachary's paging so that's it for now...
