October 17, 2008


So, I don't know if I'll get to stamp, much less feel like doing it over the next couple of days.  I had mentioned that Daniel (my 15-month old) was pretty sick, and he is STILL getting over it, but now I have it!!  I have an ear infection and some horrible sinus issues - guessing it's a sinus infection.  I've been feeling pretty crappy and running fevers for the last five days now.  At least I don't have the double pink eye that he had!!!  Yuck!

Well, my husband came home a whole day early from the desert (he's a pilot in the Air Force and was gone on a week-long trip to do some "stuff" over there) - he got back last night!!!  It wasn't for me, but I'm so glad they got to come back early!  I plan on finally getting some rest.  He took some days off just to let me try to do that since it's hard to get any with three little kids and 1 of them as sick as Daniel has been and no husband around the whole week that everything has been going nuts. 

I don't think that I will have any cards for you to see. I was lucky to stamp the 2 or so that I did last week and to get so many pictures taken of my awesome Boot Loot.  Have you seen it!!?!??!?  I'll let you in on my little secret.  I get to stamp very rarely, so I stamp a bunch, take pictures, and then schedule the posts in advance so that they cover a longer period of time and then when I don't get to stamp, you still get to see something.  Well, my reserve has run out now so I have nothing new to show you.  Sorry!

Make sure to enter my Boot Loot contest here if you haven't already.  Also, please check out my stamps and other items for sale here.  Maybe there's a retired set you've been looking for?  it might be on my list!!!

Take care, and have a great weekend if I don't post before the 20th to announce the Boot Loot winner!!!!


  1. So sorry you are not feeling well! If you tip your head to the side and pour a small amount of peroxide into the ear (I pour alittle in the peroxide bottle lid to do this!) then rub under the ear and pull on the ear to work the peroxide down into it. Then tip head the other way to let any extra glug back out it will take away earache! The peroxide will sting for a second if there is an infection in there but it kills the bacteria that causes an earache! It truly works! Sending my get well wishes your way!

  2. HOpe you get to feeling better soon.

  3. Thinking of you - hope you're feeling better soon!

  4. Thankfully hubby got home early to lend a hand. It is so hard to care for a sick child when you are also ill. Children bounce back much quicker than we do! Take care of yourself...and rest while you can.
    Thinking of you.

  5. I'll post it here so as not to double my posts on your blog candy, but I forgot to tell you:

  6. Hope you start feeling better soon. I'm glad to hear hubby got to come home early.

  7. Awe, I am so sorry for you and Daniel. I will be praying about this situation. I am really happy that your DH came home a day early...that is a blessing directly from God!
    Praying for healing and good health for all of you.
    May God continue to bless you and your family.

  8. You poor thing, that was me and my kids this past weekend!!!! Take it easy and get well soon so I can see some more pretties from you ;)

  9. Sorry to hear that you are sick. I hope that you are all feeling better soon. Take care..

  10. Oh sweetie...I'm so sorry that you're so miserable right now. I really feel for ya. Wish I could come take your kids for a while to let you sleep good--They'd have fun playing with mine. I'd so do that!! We'll be praying you get better REAL SOON!!

  11. Yuck. Being sick is rough, especially when you are in charge of young ones. Crawl into bed and hide now that your hubby is home. :-)
