Ucky Sickness

Friday afternoon I was starting to feel run down and yucky, but I had x-mas shopping to do, so I sucked it up and got it done. G&G DePew picked up Kiera from daycare so she could see them for the first time since they went on their 10 week trip across the country with Ford Racing. We picked Kiera up on the way home, with her presents hidden in the trunk, and went straight to bed.

We decided to stay home Saturday, plus I wasn't feeling that great, but we had lots of baking to get done. I had purchased a Gingerbread House Kit, and Kiera and I had a great time putting it together. Then I started baking Christmas Wreath Cookies, after dinner. While I was forming them into wreaths, Kiera puked all over the living room floor...YUCK!

That night, Jeremy decided to sleep on the floor next to Kiera's bed in case she had to puke again. Which she did, again and again and again, but with big gaps in between...7pm on Saturday, 9 am on Sunday, 3am on Monday, 9 am on Monday, 7pm on Monday, and again at 9 am on Tuesday!!!!

Now back to me...I got really sick too with a severe cold. Headache, congestion, aches, cough, and sore throat, not to mention that wonderful run down feeling that makes you feel useless. All this while cleaning up buckets and buckets of puke...UUGGHHH

I'm not certain yet, but I think Kiera and I are on the mend finally...time will tell.

Hope you and yours are healthy and happy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I can't remember the last time I was this happy! I have been working diligently for 2 years on my marriage and mother issues. I have now come to be at peace with my life! I have a great job, a man I love, a beautiful and smart 3 year old girl, a nice home, good pay, and a nice vehicle. What more could a person want?

I am so thankful for my american dream come true!

Apple Festival

Kiera, Aunt Ruth, and I had a wonderful time at the Apple Festival. We ate fresh donuts, apple cider, and caramel apples! The craft fair was a fun time too. I couldn't believe how many people were there, it was quite packed, shoulder to shoulder full of people!
