Trying again!

Okay - I've tried this before and not been very good at keeping a blog updated. Right now I am feeling pretty isolated from the real world after having my 4th baby 4 weeks ago, a 7 yr old with a broken arm 3 weeks ago and a 4 yr old with a 102 degree fever for 7 days last week. Maybe this will be a good way to vent.....

Today was going to be the first major outing as a family in the last month. A trip to the furniture store, a few garage sales, maybe a stop at the park....

So what happens in the furniture store parking lot? 4 yr old throws up! At least it wasn't in the van or in the store.... Then I find out from hubby that 4 yr old son consumed half of a very overripe banana at 6 am before both hubby and I were out of bed..... I knew that I should have tossed those yesterday.....

So back in the van to the isolation tent......(insert tears and kleenex here). At least hubby has been off on "paternity" leave to share the joy!!

Hubs and I have scheduled a night out 3 times in the last 2 weeks to go out and celebrate our 15th anniversary and aforementioned issues have prevented it..... I guess 16 will be more memorable!


I am a little nervous to have hubs go back to work and leave me with all 4. The older ones are a little bored with the whole staying at home thing too!


Okay - we finally gave in and got cable last week and I have watched WAY too many home improvement shows!

It has motivated hubby to do several things on the honey-do list (although the list continues to grow with every show I watch!)

Just saw something else - where's my list?

Came over from Deb's and this is such a fun way to meet people. I'm a mom of four too - but mine are much older. It is nice to meet you!

Another Deb-ite dropping by. I'm just happy the son is almost 19 now. Don't know if i would have survived more than one.
