Quiet Sunday

Today it turned back to winter a bit.  Gone are the 60 degree afternoons we had been enjoying.  I enjoyed the day by relaxing.  The only thing on the calendar was Jenni's practice at 3. 

It was a very enjoyable day.

Today was a day of basketball.  We started out the day in Enid watching Jenni's basketball team play.  They won their game and the girls played really really well.

Then we headed to Stillwater for another round of Mexico Joes.  We stopped by a car dealership and I found the most gorgeous mercedes.  Unfortunately it only seats four and I have to have a vehicle that will carry five.

Next it was on to Morrison.  The boys played first and got beat.  Then the girls played horrible and lost too.  Not a good way to end the tournament.

During all of this Jake had his first y game.  His team won and he said they had lots of fun. 

Jon Pralle's birthday was in December.  So we took them out for pizza at the hideaway in Stillwater.

We ended the day in the hot tub and a glass of wine.

Well all kids went back to school today.  I got lots done this morning.  I got some pictures done for the yearbook staff.  I cleaned out my coupon binder and got caught up cutting all my coupons from the last couple of weeks.  It feels so good to get that done!

Then I headed to Morrison for the Boys game.  They won by a bunch and the freshman got to play. 

Shari and I took Landon and Jake to Mexico Joes then headed back for the girls game.  They lost in a game where they should have won.

Break is over, back to school

Well at least half of the kids are going back to school.  The girls are staying home because of their rashes.  Boys said they had a good day.

Tim and I went to the game in Morrison.  The girls played extremely well!  They beat an unbeaten Pawnee team.  The boys played a close game but lost by 6. 

I attempted the craft project like Kati's.  I'm pretty happy with it.  I used boards so it made it a bit heavy but it worked.  The words say Friends for Life.

Day of doctors...

Here is every patients nightmare!  I suspect that Jenni has chicken pox so I call her pediatrician and get an appointment for 9:15 this morning.  Jessi had a few spots on her so I made her go too.  We get to the office and wait 25 minutes past our scheduled time even though we were the only ones in the office.  I respect your time by showing up early.  I expect you to respect my time by being at work on time.  I understand when you are behind because of patients but again we were the only ones there when we got there and when we left. 

They take their weight and height.  When the Dr. finally arrives she barely even examines the girls.  Then and I quote "well I don't know if its chicken pox or not".  It could be staff infection, it could be chicken pox, or it could be a rash.  REALLY!  You told me last night on the phone you couldn't diagnose over the phone apparently you can't diagnose in person either!!!  GEEZ!!!  So I ask you if they can go back to school tomorrow.  You reply and I quote again " I really don't know." Then after much him hawing you tell me to keep them home till Monday.  You prescribe an antibiotic and send us on our way after charging me $70.  Two co pays.  Now I have no problem paying two co pays but you didn't diagnose anything.  You gave me no solid information.

So after conversing with Jessi's coach we decided to head to stillwater to an urgent care there.  Here they actually took their temperature and blood pressure.  He diagnosed it as a viral rash that will go away in a couple of days.  They have to stay home from school until the spots dry up.  It was so nice to get an actual diagnosis and a statement of fact as to when they could go back to school.

Chicken Pox?

Well today I spent finishing up the bedroom clean a thon!  Making progress.  Even got the closet cleaned out.  Then abour 4:30 Jenni came in and said, "mom what are  all these bumps on me."  Geez I think she has chicken pox.  I called and got an appointment tomorrow morning.  I'm pretty sure it is though.  Great!!!

Other than that nothing overly exciting.

Day 2, 2012

Well today was a busy day already!  I started cleaning out our room.  I'm tired of my bedroom acting as our laundry room.  We only have a hall where the washer and dryer are so all the dirty clothes end up in my room on the floor.  So I spent the morning sorting and cleaning on my room in between running Jessi back and forth from the gym. 

The afternoon was full of Jessi's basketball game against Dover.  Wow have the mighty fallen.  I know it has been 20 some years since I was in high school but Dover was always a power house.  Either we are really really good or they are really bad.  We won 70 something to 20 something.  Jessi did an amazing job!

Next we headed home for the OSU BCS Fiesta bowl game!  What a game!  It was tied with 3 seconds left and their kicker missed his field goal to win the game.  Overtime it went.  Stanford had the ball first.  Kicker misses again.  We march down the field and make our field goal to win the game.  So exciting!

Tim and I finished my movie transfer project.  Now all those movies that took up so much space fit in two zipper pouch cases.  It is awesome.

1st day of 2012!

What a great way to start the year.  We met the new year with friends at our house and the birthday boys had friends over.  It was good to be surrounded by good friends.

Jake and Josh's birthdays were pretty low key.  We didn't even have a family party.  I will have to plan something for them later this month. 

The rest of the day was spent relaxing and I started a small project.  We have several hundred movies that have been stored away out in the barn.  It has been frustrating because you could never get one to watch.  We had discussed putting them in the zipper disc holders several years ago but Tim didn't like the idea of throwing away the cases.  But after a year of not having access to them I decided to go for it.  We had four boxes full of movies.  I have filled one 280 disc folder and will probably fill half of another.  I have three bags of trash full of the cases.  Hopefully we will use the movies now.
