Happy 11th Birthday Bo

This is Boaz, the Birthday boy.

I was up early this morning baking a cake for Boaz. He turns 11 on Wednesday but we are having his party tonight so my family can all come. I look forward to being together with my Dad and Mom, Bret and Jessica, my grand babies, and my brother Donnie. (Jessica's brother, we tell him he is part of the family now)

We cleaned the house last night. (John and I)

Today, I just have to do a few last minute things and we will be ready for the party.

There really isn't much to update about my life last week. I worked or I was in bed with fever, chills, aches and pain, head & muscle aches and bad cough. Yes, I got the crud last week. I called my good friend Joe on Thursday to tell him I wouldn't be picking up his boy's or be at Worship team practice. (This about killed me not to be able to get my Grandson and my adopted Grand babies, and I had to miss worship team practice and Worship on Sunday) I told him I had the crud. He said, "Sis, is that something new going around". Bless his heart, what a sweetheart, he wasn't joking. Goodness, he makes me laugh!

Update: I just found out from my Worship Leader (11:50 a.m.) that Joe came down with the crud on Saturday and wasn't able to lead Worship yesterday. My Leader came down with a cold. It sure is going around!

The crud all started last Sunday when I got home from my route, my body ached. Well, that was just the beginning. By Thursday, I could hardly make it out of bed. My hubby stayed home Thursday and Friday to get the kids off to school and take care of me. My head hurt to bad to try and blog. God sure has a way of slowwwwwing ussss downnnnn.

That is the last time I cry about not having enough to do. I think instead of adding anymore to my life, I'm going to start enjoying those quiet moments. "NO MORE WHINING" LOL! It is time to live again and be thankful that I have extra time to myself. Lets see, breakfast with the girls, Bible studies again, read more books. I am looking at this empty-nest thing, all wrong. I put in a lot of hard work, now it is time to relax. Woooo, I think I'm going to like this. Hee, Hee (Hopefully, my husband doesn't read this, ROFL)

My poor husband, I think (I know) he is the only man that would or could put up with me. Thanks hubby for putting up with my many personalities!! Whinny, weepy, funny, moody, talkative, happy, emotional, a joke stir, some might say spacey or scary (Hey, if the shoe fits). I'm not even going to write about my big mouth laugh. Let's just say, you know if I'm in the room without looking. Oh my, sad to say, I think I could keep going. LOL! He still loves me after all these years! (22)

This morning I feel almost back to normal. (As normal as I get) Yeaaaaaa!!!! I still have the cough but I can live with that for a few more days. Right now, it's time to get ready for a parrrtttaaaaa! Wooohooooo!!

I hate being sick and having to cancel...especially worship practice, so I can identify!

Glad you're feeling better for your son's party!

I had to comment, one thing that always draws me to people is their laugh! When someone can laugh....and I mean Laugh - I feel an instant connection! That must be why I like you so much, even tho' I've never heard you laugh!!
