Why do things have to get worse before they get better?

I swear enough is enough. It has been more than a week since I have even looked at this blog and the proverbial crap has hit the fan. Well Kylee had pneumonia, and so we did the whole take care of the sick child continously for almost 2 weeks, poor kid. We spent most of the week of the 21st doing house work going to meetings and getting stuff ready for girls camp and the George Reunion. The 22nd we went through all the girls camp supplies and tents to find out that the scouts were going to camp on the 28th so it was completely pointless. Then Thursday I had a meeting for work that was way to long and frustrating. Friday we did house work and got ready for the reunion, we had the hospital picnic which was alright then we went to Danny's parents house to kick off the reunion. Saturday we spent the day at the lake, I finally got to wake board for th first time this year.(Yipee!) That night we did the big family pic and talent show. By this time I was starting to feel run down, (I guess I should add that I started coughing Wednesday but didn't think to much of it.) Any way by the time I got home Saturday night I was running a fever of 101 and everything hurt even my hair. So I had Danny and his Dad give me a priesthood blessing.(thank you Danny for holding the priesthood and staying worthy.) I slept restlessly and ended up not going to church, I took it easy the rest of the weekend. Sunday night I tried to tie up some loose ends for girls camp. I had to reline up a different trailer(thanks Mitch) and double check with the scheduled priesthood leaders, but finally at this point everything was relatively lined up. We went to bed but didn't find much sleep. I kept my self and Danny up most of the night b/c I was coughing so much. Needless to say when Monday morning finally came I went to the doctor only to find out that I had gotten Kylee's pneumonia from her. So Monday was spent sleeping and taking meds. Tuesday morning I felt relatively well so I spent the morning with my sisters picking cherries so I can can them Thursday night. I was pretty spent after that so I spent most of the day sleeping again, that night I had mutual and did some more girls camp certifying then we went to Kaylynn's for root beer floats to culminate the kid's soccer season. It was nice but the day had gone on long enough, I went home and took my medicine and crashed. This morning I got up and got the girls ready, Kylee finally had her appointment with the ENT and as I suspected she is going to have surgery on the 13th of August to get her tonsils and adnoids removed. I hope all will go ok and it will help in the long run. We then went home had lunch and took naps. I had a chance to finally see to my poor garden thats been neglected this past week and got 8 green peppers, a zuchini thats huge and a bunch of peas picked, before I came to work. Work was going relatively well until Danny called to tell me that the main priesthood leader I had line up for the week at camp was no longer going to be able to go due to his wife having to surgery. So now I am in a pickle, I need to line up 3 priesthood leaders for camp with less than a week to go, and I am not sure where to start. I hope the bishopric had some luck in there search last night. Oh and one more thing that sucks I had lined up the opportunity to donate blood tomorrow but I can no longer do it thanks to this crappy pneumonia. ARGH!!! I hope I can pull this mess together and have a decent weekend and be able to provide a good experience for the girls at camp. Please pray for me and my weakness' that I will make it through. I hope when I have the chance to write again my stress will be diminished. Just remember, "This to shall pass."(Thanks Grandma.)

Well the weekend is over, and it didn't get much better. I went home Saturday morning and Kylee, sounded awful, she still had a fever, and her cough was horrendous so I called and talked to one of the ER nurses and she said we had probably better get her checked out again. So Kylee and I made a visit to to the hospital to have the doc take a peak at her. We ended up having to check her into the ER so we could get a chest x-ray. My poor baby now has pneumonia. I can't believe that in one week she could go from a virus to strep throat to having pneumonia. Needless to say we didn't go to church again and I had to switch my schedule for work around again. I think she is finally doing better though her and Lex were on one when I was trying to rest before work. The two of them are starting to feed off of each other they egg each other on and pester the crap out of each other to the point of squealing at the top of there lungs. Danny didn't have much better luck with them after I came to work, he put them to bed at 8 and they were still awake at 10 they had turned on the light and were playing with each other 3 different times. That poor guy had to hand out a bunch of spanks that went unnoticed. Oh well kids will be kids hopefully we can have a better day today and maybe have some fun this week with out sick kids.(knock on wood!!) Here are a few pics from the fourth of July.

One Hot Hubby!!

Side Note

I had to go with the BEES!! That is our theme for girls camp when I saw it I thought I had to have it to help me get in the spirit of, "Bee Unified, Grow Together." Just pray for me that I can pull this thing off without a hitch and provide a good experience for the girls. Only 3 weeks left. (Yikes!!)

Ten days already??

Well as you can tell time flies by no matter what you do! The fourth was pretty lazy but it was good. I spent most of the morning sleeping, then we worked in our garden, (it is definitely coming along.) That evening we went out to my parents and the girls played in the sprinkler and then we had a bbq. Danny got some great pictures we just haven't gotten them from my moms camera yet so when i do I will post a few. The rest of the weekend went by fast with out much to talk about except Kylee started running a fever on Sunday morning so yet another Sunday of only going to Sacrament meeting. I think the relief society is going to think I am inactive. Any way By Monday morning she was worse so we went to the doctor, the told us is was just a virus so we went home. Over the next 48 hours things got worse her fever got higher and she was more miserable so Wednesday we got into see her normal doctor and she tested positive for strep. (yuck!!) So our poor little girl had to get a big old shot of penicillin in her tiny little leg,OUCH!! I felt so bad but we didn't want to have 10 days worth of antibiotics to take when she was already getting tired of having to take the Ibuprofen and tylenol around the clock since Sunday. I feel so bad for that little girl, this is number 3 on case of strep this year, so we have an appointment with the ENT doctor on the 30th of July to see if we need to get her tonsils out. Thursday wasn't much better, we jut added a sore leg to everything. It breaks my heart to see her hurting and miserable, if I could trade her places I would in a heart beat, but I am sure any parent would do the same for their kids. Friday was better, she was still running a low grade fever but her over all spirits were better. I am sure her daddy took great care of her while I was at work last night, we will see how she is when I get home this morning.I love you little bug and hope you feel better. She has been asking me all week to go to Jensen's Grove and play in the water I hope she is good enough we can go today. Well I hope everyone is having a good summer and has the opportunity to stop and smell the roses.

Happy Four of July!!

Well, I can't believe that it is the middle of the summer already. Time has flown by so fast, we haven't been skiing yet and we haven't even been tent camping yet. It looks like things aren't going to get much better very soon, at least not until I get girls camp over with. I have one month to go and I feel like the most unorganized camp director ever. I just hope I can pull it of before it is to late. The girls are loving the weather I am enjoying it now that my AC is up and running. It is nice in the mornings ,it is usually cool enough that I can get my exercise in for the day, but by noon time it is just sweltering so I retreat inside and make the girls do the same until later in the after noon then they spend the evening on the swing set or in their little pool.
The fourth is going to be a little different for us this year, we normally go to Idaho Falls with Danny's family, but they are going to be in Boise packing up Leslie and Dustin to help the move to Washington for school. It will still be fun, we are planning a BBQ with my family and we are going to see what good old Blackfoot has to offer. I hope everyone has a good and safe time celebrating this wonderful land we live in!! Hopefully I will update again soon.
