"Elvis, Elvis!" She exclaimed. "It's Elvis and the Chipmunks!" (Summer 2010 ~ Part 1)
During this time my workload got heavier and heavier..... my right-hand girl was now out of commission and ooking after The Teenager became a full time job.... she couldn't do much on her own and she had to be assisted at all times. My mother came to stay with us for a bit to help out - Thank God for mothers! (Mom, if I didn't fully express how grateful I am to you for all your help - THANKYOU! You've made a difficult situation easier to contend with and I appreciate all your effort.)
Eventually the Teenager got an infection in the incision :( Of course both her surgeon and her family doctor were away on vacation (not together ... at least I don't think so) at the time. It got concerning enough that Daddy took her to the hospital to have it looked after. A few hours later and a script for antibiotics and she was back home. All the while I'd been cleaning and preparing for an open house we had scheduled for the following day. Days were melting into nights and I couldn't even remember what day it WAS anymore..... and that's when the REAL chaos began......
"Latoya! Quit scratching your head.... what's wrong with you? Come here.... Oh my Lord!!!!! Please tell me I'm seeing things..... not now, not at a time like this......
(I think I'll continue this in the next posting as I'm sure this is going to be a long story) ......
Here are a few Funnies from our house to yours:
*After breakfast one morning Nicholas asked "Can I have a neckturn Mama?" (He meant a nectarine.)
* Little Daniel couldn't remember what those things were that he built in the winter time .... the things made of snow.... "Oh ya! The snow gloos." He blurted out excitedly.
*Dad and the boys were out on the boat fishing and eating their snacks when Little Daniel remarked "Mmmm, this tastes like oatmeal." (He was eating a Quaker oatmeal -to-go bar. LOL)
* Latoya got very worked up over a television commercial one night. She recognized a picture of Elvis and became very excited. "Elvis, Elvis!" She exclaimed. "It's Elvis and the Chipmunks!"
* We were watching a kids program on television one night and the question was asked "What do you want to be when you grow up?" One child answered "a veterinarian." Shaned piped up and said "Oh, I know what that is.... it means you don't eat any meat." He said matter of factly :)
Just a reminder that the next AVON order will be placed on Tuesday September 14th - contact me if there's anything you would like me to get for you!
