TC choked at school today and could not breathe

The kids went back to school today.
I picked TC up after daycare and he had a note in his folder that he choked on a corndog nugget at lunch.
His teacher had to perform the heimlich maneuver.
I am just crying and thanking God that he is okay.
I will NEVER send those in his lunch again.

So so grateful that his teacher was looking out for was the Lord.

Sick but better

I had to work yesterday, I was so sick I thought I was just going to pass out.
But I made it!

I came home around 2:30 and Hubby made me some Theraflu.
Then I asked Sara to make me some hot chocolate.
I rested and watched a movie.

Took more medicine before bed and woke up feeling a lot better today!
Hubby is now making lunch, turkey, potatoes, corn, stuffing.
We are having our dinner today, just us and the kids.
TC won't eat any of it so he is having mini corn dogs.

Today will be good!

Doctor visit

So I took TC to the dr. today after the movies.
I did NOT like the nurse practicioner that we saw.
She didn't even tell him she was checking his throat,
she just stuck the stick in his mouth and gagged him.

Then she ordered x rays saying he may have pneumonia.
I knew better but they had a machine there so I was like, WHATEVER.

Afterwards she tried to tell me about cupping my hand and patting him
on the back to break up his congestion.
Can I say DUH?

I know this already.

Oh yeah, and she was about 25 and probably has no kids, her bedside
manner left a lot to be desired.

AND we were there over 2 hours..ugh.


This is a nebulizer! We got it today it is a firetruck. TC loves it.

Peace and hair grease.


Movie day

Today is NEW MOON. I can't wait.
Had a lot of drama last night because Sara took her cousin's MP3 player to school and now it is nowhere to be found.
A new one costs $80.
I don't have $80.

Sara babysits for us and gets paid sometimes so I guess she will buy a new MP3 when she babysits next time and a few times after that.

Hubby is sick, TC is sick.
Hubby stayed home today.

It seems everytime I take off, he ends up staying home.
But I am not going to let it affect my excitement.
Our movie starts at noon!!

Sunday sickies

TC is up this morning coughing and coughing.
I have given him Mucinex to break up the junk in his chest.
I sure hope it helps.
So fever.

He has school Monday and Tuesday so I hope he gets better, he has already missed 5 days and does not need to miss more.
My hubby is sick too.
I hate it when hubby is sick because he feels guilty and is super sensitive.
I HATE it.

I need to get started on some homework this morning but I want to just lay by my boy for awhile first.

Also, as usual, I have tons of laundry to hang up and fold but I know my sweet Sara will help me!

The menu for lunch/dinner today is ribs, potatoes, and a salad. We will probably eat around 2'ish.

Beans, farts, teens, and cuteness

Oh my gosh, TC is so cute right now, he is sleepy and fresh from the bath and I want to SQUEEZE him.

Sara has been getting on my nerves really bad since she turned 14.
It is like she does things to aggravate me and oohhh I sometimes have to hold myself back. Lord knows I love her but OMG, it gets rough. Especially during PMS times.
But, she is a good girl, and I am thankful.

I ate 12 bean soup today that a coworker made. I had to tell the story Maria told on on her blog...Just Eat your Cupcake. We laughed and laughed.
Don't feel bad, Maria, I was farting a lot today after eating that damn bean soup.

How come I have to tell my kids to get in the shower like 5 times?

How come my husband thinks it's okay to wake me up at 3 am for sex?

Why does my new Whitney cd make me cry everytime I hear it?

Why can't people just love each other instead of hating over stupid shit?

Do some people seriously NOT brush their hair before they come to work??

How come I cleaned the heck out of my house and it is funky again?

Why can't I be rich and have a maid?

Today is my FRIDAY.
Today is MY Friday.

Sooooooooooooo happy!

Wow, this weekend went by TOO fast! Since I had to work Saturday, I was only able to have one day off.
And most of that day was spent doing laundry, dishes, cooking and working on a paper. BLECH.

The kids slept in yesterday which resulted in TC staying up hours past his bedtime last night. I will probably need lots of caffeine today!

I am only working 3 days this week. I took off Thursday, and I am automatically off Friday because I worked this past Saturday.

I sure get irritated when driving the kids to school in the morning.
There was this one guy who was on my butt and it was in a SCHOOL ZONE. I was so mad and when he passed me, I secretly wished the police up ahead would pull him over.

Then I got to work and 2 people came in the door ahead of me but didn't hold the door open. Then one of them claimed to not see me. Okay, whatever. I am a hefty girl, I am wearing Fuchsia today, how can you miss me?

I wish I could clean my house really good and that it would stay clean until the kid's birthday party on Saturday.

At work

Man, I will be glad when 3:00 comes. I am at work today. So far, it has been a good day, other than my allergies and my monthly you-know-what.

Sara is with my mother in law going to a baby shower for my father in law's daughter. She is pregnant with a girl. She is due next month, I think.

TC and Hubs were at the lake earlier, TC was eating fries and watching Hubs shoot his bb gun. I hope they have fun and that TC is in a good mood when I get home.
I have another big paper due tomorrow. Hopefully it won't take me all day, but you just never know!!

My weekend will be pretty short nonetheless. I don't like working on Saturday.

Rude and inconsiderate family member

I mentioned in my Tx Blog that sometimes you have to just say no and not feel bad about it.

Well, my sister called me last Saturday, 2 hours before I was going to take the kids to a church carnival and trick or treating. She said, "Oh your nephew (her son, Josh) has invited himself to go to the church carnival with you and stay the night."

Of course she put me on the spot, but I told her I would have to call her back.
And when I did, I told her that I just wanted to take my kids, but he could stay another time.

So she is not speaking to me right now.

Well, I ordered some Avon for my niece and I messaged my sister on Facebook and told her that my niece's Avon is in. And that I know she is mad at me over this past weekend.

She said in her reply, "Well, I was upset. And I have a lot going on so I won't be able to come get her Avon. I'll get it from you another time."

And I messaged her back and this is what I said.
Doing things short notice freaks TC out a lot of the time. We had already had a pretty full day and he was cranky. I didn't stay long at the church thing, it was very small and made for little ones, not teens. But TC had fun anyways. Maybe next time we can plan a little more ahead. Sunday I had a 1400 word paper I had to write, so Saturday was not a good night for company. I have a lot going on too and I would never hurt anybody's feelings but sometimes you have to do what works for you and your family and hope that people don't get mad. Sara wanted Chelle to come over this weekend and I said, I have to work Saturday and besides that, it is Josh's turn to stay the night, he is next. I am not trying to be unfair, I have invited Josh and he had other things going on but he is welcome to stay after this weekend.

I mean, I get tired of having to lick her butt 24/7 and she doesn't know how dealing with a kid with Autism works. You can't just spring things on TC or all hell will break loose.

And I get even more tired of her (and other people) saying how much they have going on. I am busy too, HELL, I am working, going to school, mowing, cleaning, cooking, laundrying, and everything!! She rents her house and doesn't even have to mow, they do it for her.

But I try to be considerate and not ask anybody to help out with my kids. And if they offer I am grateful. But I do not expect it!

I really want to tell her to get over herself already!

Ms. Sara posing with the purse I found today for my Mom (Christmas gift).

TC and his cursing

TC has been cursing all evening.
He sure is working my nerves.

He cracked me up when he said this morning "M.O.G" instead of "O.M.G."
He spells stuff but it's all wrong because he can't spell yet but it is funny.
He just made me a tattoo on my leg that has xnm and he said it reads, "Mom is going to work."

But I wish he would stop cussing like a sailor.

TC was so cute yesterday.
He told Sara, "This was the best Halloween ever, huh Sara?"

Then he asked me, "Is trick or treat over?"
And I said, "Yep, until next year."

He is getting more and more fun as he is able to try and tolerate new things.
This Mama is happy today just thinking about it.

He stopped a lot of people and told them how AWESOME they looked in their costumes and what they were dressed as.
Here is a scenario:

TC:Hey, you are a Transformer, you look awesome!
Kid: Looking at TC and walking away
ME: Grinning from ear to ear

So tomorrow is Sara's 14th birthday and I am picking her up early to take her to lunch and shopping...a girl's day. I am excited!!

So Lame

Yesterday was pretty great!
We got up, went to SAMS, came home for a little rest and then went to a church carnival.

I took the kids Trick or Treating. Then we came home to view the loot!

Even though clocks were turned back, I woke up before 6. Thus did TC.
I turned the tv on trying to find him something to watch.

Blues Clues was on.

He informed me, "This is so lame."
And when it was over, he said, "Whew. I am soooo glad that is over. It is not very awesome."

He cracks me up!
