It's raining, it's pouring.............

................and my blog is snoring!

I know, I know............I haven't written in a long time. Here's my excuse. (big sigh....keep reading.)

I have had the flu. Yup....the full blown flu. It has been almost a week. I feel like I was hit by a truck and I only have enough strength to get up for 15 minutes or so and then I'm bushed! But amongst all the flu-ishness, I had an adventure. Let me tell ya'll 'bout it.

I went to the post office two nights ago. During the day I stayed in bed or on the couch. The kids were very kind to me and let me relax some. So, I thought I could drive a few blocks to the post office. I made it fine and dropped off my mail and headed back to the car.

(This is where the adventure starts..................)

I was minding my own business, heading for my car, when the pavement all-of-a-sudden-like reach up and grabbed me. Really---just grabbed me. One moment I was walking and the next moment I was flat on the asphault. I jumped up with the first recollection being, "Oh, no what if people see me laying here in the road.......they'll think I am drunk and haul me away." If I had taken a moment to realize my condition, I might have stayed down and taken a moment to collect myself.

I got in the van and inspected myself for a moment. I must have hit on my right side. My ribs were pounding, my knee had funny pangs bellowing at me, and my hands were all gravelly and bleeding with a nice case of road rash. I thought, "Wait a minute! I have spent all week feeling sick. I am supposed to be getting better! This doesn't indicate getting better!"

So, today I sit here typing. I really do feel like I was hit by a truck. My ribs feel bruised and sore, my right shoulder and knee are stiff, and my hands are healing nicely. (Thanks to Timothy, his tweezers, and numerous bandaids.)

I will post more when I feel better. But for now, I am taking it easy and not going to the post office any more. The prices are so high.........your liable to PASS OUT!

Kid's Pics

All my beautiful babies!

Look, Grandma! I finally got my braces on.

Pretty Ariana

Hollywood Holly

Jaren......with a gleam of defiance in his eyes.

Brothers are SaaWeeeeet!

Gotta love that face. I don't think Holly got the "no funny faces" memo. It makes me smile every time I look at this picture.
Seperate is more giggles.

Ariana is always our little "poser". Remember this post? She decided she needed this pose as well. I thought it turned out pretty cute.
