What a week!

Ugh.

You know it's not going well when the post starts with an "Ugh".

So last week I told you all about how I killed my laptop.  Yep, dead.  Well.....the new one got here late Tuesday afternoon!  WooHoo!!  It has taken me two days to feel it out and play with some of the features.

While having the new laptop is great....the rest of my week hasn't gone so well.  It has had some highlights, like getting free diapers on Saturday and donating my goodies to the Salvation Army, but there have been some lows.

Sunday we woke up and we were all sick.  Yes, ALL of us.  Ugh!  Mads was the worse, followed by me, then hubs, then MG.  MG is still kind of snotty but is better for the most part.  PHEW!  Hubby's head still feels like it is going to explode.  I feel just crummy, snotty, congested, head hurts, throat hurts....ugh.

Then, then there is Mads.

My sweet girl really was not feeling good Sunday.  Monday seemed a bit better but it really wasn't.  Tuesday was even worse.  Every once in a while she would just SCREAM because her ears hurt her so bad.  We took her to the doctor yesterday and she has ruptured BOTH eardrums.  BOTH of them!  My poor sweet girl!  I feel so bad for her.  We got some drops, some antibiotic and some cotton balls.  When we got home Dr. Mom fixed her all up and made her rest.

Last night before bed her right ear started hurting again.  I looked in and I could see chunk of wax that I could get to.  I scooped it out....I am not kidding you it was the size of a pea!

GROSS!

GAG!

YUCK!

After I got it out she got this look of relief on her face, poor girl.  Needless to say, she felt MUCH better after that.  Phew!  She was so excited this morning to finally be going back to school.  I haven't heard from her teacher yet so hopefully everything is going well.

So, it has been a bit of a week.  I have managed to try some new recipes and can't WAIT to share them with you all!  YUM!

Oh, yesterday I did have a post on Mom It Forward!  Love them!  Check it out, it was a lot of fun to make!

I hope you all are having an AWESOME week!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

For Such a Time as This

You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the times that we l…
