Monday Meanderings

Today was quite a long day. Hunter woke up this morning with a temp of 102 so I decided that a fever like that for three days in a row needs to be addressed by a doctor. We switched doctors today. There were two reasons why. The first reason was because I had been meaning to do this since we moved but I just haven't had the time. Second was because the doctor who was in the closest office, was on vacation and I would have to travel 30 minutes one way to get him seen. So I finally switched doctors. I have to say that the doctor who did see him today was very nice. I like her a lot. We were in and out of there in 20 minutes. The other place we would be there at least an hour before we were seen. I like the place we went to today. So come to find out that he just has a virus. He's still not feeling well and his throat hurts. He also has a head ache and a slight fever. He's due for ibuprofen soon so he should be all set at bedtime tonight. He slept for four hours this afternoon.

Then I decided that we should do makeup work from last week. That just didn't pan out. The girls weren't really up to doing anything and I don't blame them. I wasn't up to doing anything either.

Yesterday we went to my Aunt Shay's house for a "Shop til you Drop" party. This is a party where we plan out our Black Friday day of shopping. We bring gifts for each other. It's a lot of fun. I got a lot of snowman things. Snowmen are an awesome thing for me. I really like them. I love to decorate with them too! Anyway. The girls went with me, then we went grocery shopping to Wal-Mart after that. It was a lot of fun.

I am so not ready for my 7 year old to be a 7 year old. Since she has turned seven, she hasn't been nice to people. She has thrown fits about helping out around the house (this she does all the time when ever she is asked to do something), she doesn't want to do any of her chores (it took me 20 minutes the other day to get her to come down to help with the dishes). She told me today that it is so hard to get older. It is so hard to be seven. I don't understand. I'm not asking her to do anything more than she has done when she was six. What do I do? How do I fix it? Where do I begin to make it better?

I want things to go so smoothly in our home, but it doesn't seem to be working out that way. I have been very touchy lately because I feel I'm not getting enough help. When the kids do things that they are told to do, sometimes they act like me(they get testy). I don't like it and tell them they should be thankful for what they are doing. It is hard to see these things myself but for me to see it through the others it is so much easier. How is it so much easier? I don't get it sometimes.

I have been feeling very insecure about myself in the past month or so. I feel that no matter how much I try to fix myself and make myself better, I get thrown backwards and I have to start over again. I don't know. Maybe I need to be more confident of myself.

We have decided that our family needs to eat better. We have gotten into the habit of comfy food. Comfy food makes comfy pants, which makes jeans not want to fit anymore. Anyway. I have been trying to find some kind of plan that can help our family to eat better. Something that has foods that everyone in our family likes. Kraft foods has a wonderful plan that is family friendly. Kraft has yummy meal ideas and snack ideas. They also have other nutrition ideas for your family.So we started using it this week. So far on day two, I like it. The food is yummy and we are trying new food ideas too. We found these nilla yogurt freeze that are to die for. It is so delicious. The best part is that Bryant liked it too. Tonight we are having chocolate graham crackers with cream cheese. I can't wait.

Anyway. Enough of me. I may return later with another chat. Thanks for all the comments. They mean a lot to me. Have a good night. I know I will.

Auntie B.
