So my baby has been sick for almost a week straight with a fever and no other symptoms. We have taken her to the doctors twice now and they had to take a urine sample from her by straight cath and it was HORRIBLE. I wish i knew what was wrong with her. I hate to see her like this. Any ideas would be really appreciated.
Back to school next week. Im excited and worried at the same time. Lots on my plate when Im in school. I feel like I sometimes have to put my family on the back burner a little bit so I am able to get everything done. And that makes me feel like a bad wife and mother. I just hope I am able to balance everything. I know I love college and love to learn. I know it will all pay off in the end and I am praying for strength and support from God and my Family.
I am also praying for my husband right now. I feel like he is struggling and I know its because he is overworked. He works so many hours overtime during the snowy months and he is so miserable right now. I feel like I am his punching bag and I wish sometimes he would stop and think about how that makes me feel. I love him dearly, but I can only take so much before I blow. Please pray that God will give me strength to deal with all of life's stressors. If anyone has any advice about how to take care of all this, my ears are open!!

Snow Day

We have got a ton of snow this season. Thats a good thing I guess since I got a new snowmobile. It makes for a lot of hours of overtime for the hubby though. That can be good and bad. Money is good, but the tired husband is bad. We seem to make it through.
SO college has been fantastic. I have changed my major from Nursing to Psychology, and am planning to one day get my masters in social work. We will see right? So far so good though, my GPA is 3.64. I think thats pretty good. I really enjoy getting out and having some time to myself. I think it has helped Mary become more independent starting day care. There were a few weeks of crying, but now she really enjoys it. We have been on break since Dec 17th and she misses it terribly. That must be a good sign.
The kids older kids are doing great. Brianna and Emma are fantastic students, and Emma has adjusted to her new school easily. At open house her teacher mentioned it seems as though she has always been a part of the class. That puts a mothers mind at ease.
Matt and are really doing well. We have really become a great team. He understands that when I have work to do for school, others things may not get done, like the floors and laundry. He helps out so much too. And he is never too opposed of take out. I think he knows it makes it easier on both of us.
I guess thats really all of have for now. I plan on trying to post everyday, and I want to share a new link with some great recipes. Hope you all enjoy my post, comment, comment, comment. I love to hear from you all!!
