Feeling fine

Man, oh man, has this fall/winter been quite the season for getting sick.
Between multiple cases of pink eye, the stomach bug, and head colds; sometimes I wonder if we will ever get better. Hopefully, we are all on the mend now. Acacia, Liam, and I all have a cold, but I think we are at the end of it.

School, housework, homework, kids...that is my life ha ha.

Not much interesting has been going on lately. Just staying busy, busy. The next couple of months should be fun though. We have lots of birthdays and other fun things planned.

Our heater stopped working properly the other day. Well, I don't think its been working right for a while, but we noticed troubling signs the other day. This is not good :(  We have a gas fireplace, but it doesn't heat the whole house effectively. It will keep us from freezing to death, just not as warm as I like.
Hopefully it wont cost too awful much to fix. I miss having a warm bathroom LOL.

Such is life.

Well better get these kids up and ready for school. Have a great day everyone :~)

Update

Here are a few pictures of what we have been doing lately.

Christmas was great, busy of course, but great. We went to the downtown New Years Eve festivities with my sister and my niece. It was cold, but fun.

My kids are growing so fast. I can't keep up. :~)

I started my second semester this week. This semester I am taking Literature based research, Chemistry, and Psychology. I think its going to be fun.

My sister in law ended up having the first baby of the new year in her county. Tanner wasn't due until the end of the month, but was born a healthy 7lbs. Besides being a little jaundice, he is good. We can't wait to meet him in person.

Between birthdays, school, and life in general, the next few months are going to be busy.
Speaking of life and school, I better get this baby down for a nap and then work on some homework.

It’s 3 a.m., they’re all asleep, and no-one’s here to see.
As we rock slowly back and forth,
My baby boy and me.

His little hand is feather light
Tucked up against my chin.
I hold his tiny hand in mine,
and stroke his baby skin.

The house about us creaks and groans,
The clock hands creep around.
He snuggles closer to me still,
And makes his baby sounds.

I love these quiet hours so much,
And cherish every one.
Store memories up inside my heart
For lonely nights to come.

All too soon he’ll be grown up,
His need for mama gone.
But until then I still have time
For kisses and for song.

Time for quiet hours like this
With him cuddled in my arms,
Where I wish he’d always stay
Protected, safe and warm.

And yet I know the day will come
When his tiny little hand, will be bigger than my own.
He’ll grow to be a man.

But until then he’s mine to love
With no one here to see.
As we rock slowly back and forth,
My baby boy and me.
