Sick again...

Took Junior back to the doctor today and he has pneumonia. Apparently it covers a large portion of his left lung. Poor little guy is hanging in there. Breathing treamtent did nothing and I have to take him back in on Sunday. At least I am being followed by the same doctor. She said if he changes at all I need to take him straight to the ER and have him admitted. He is on two antibiotics so I am hoping that they kick in and he starts feeling better. And where is DH?????? In the field of course. I am starting to think that he never sees a sick kiddo.

I'm sick too, but of course I don't have time for that since Abs has a play tomorrow and DQ comes home from camp tomorrow.

I really need to book a facial and a massage....

X Bike , Ears and Army Wives

I went to my second X bike class today. A lot easier than the first, but definitely gives you a workout. I guess I need to give up my beloved Body Step and focus on X bike till after October. I have to do this! Since I finished my MBA, I have done nothing to really challenge myself, so maybe this is what I need to get back into the swing of things. (And don't even ask how long ago I graduated, makes me feel like a bum!)

Took Junior to the doctor today while Abs was at theatre camp (which she loves). He has a horrible double ear infection. They put him on an antibiotic and I am hoping that we really see an improvement tomorrow the poor little guy.

I am about to watch the show Army Wives. I watched the first two minutes of it and they showed a Soldier proposing to a girl he knew for 4 days....that's why the divorce rate is so high! (Yes I know that it has actually decreased)

Last year I had just had a baby so I walked the 5K with all three kids. This year I am going to do the 40 mile bike ride with my SIL. I guess I better get a bike and start training. No idea where to start. Maybe drop my step classes for a spinning class? I'd love to do a Century ride, but I know I am not ready for that. Not even sure I can make a 40 mile bike ride! Wish me luck!

Back Home

We left Saturday morning and picked up my mom and then headed to Houston. My brother and his wife live there and we were spending the night before we dropped DQ off at camp this afternoon. Junior is thankfully a pretty good traveler so we don't have to stop excessively. We did go by our old house in Houston (which we had demolished for my parent's anniversary--how sweet, I know, but it needed to be done. We walked around the property and checked out the area to see how much it had grown.

We got to my brother's house pretty early in the afternoon and hung out while my SIL made a great dinner. The girls enjoyed being with their aunt and uncle and Junior LOVED their dogs and cats. He chased them around the house and was worn out by the end of the day.

Today we had breakfast and then the girls went to the park with their aunt and uncle while I napped and my mom watched Junior. I was exhausted and needed the rest to do all the driving today.

This afternoon after lunch we drove DQ down to Girl Scout Camp in Seabrook. This is the same sailing camp that I went to while I was growing up. I wish I could have stayed!!! It looks like she will have a great time and hopefully learn a lot. She wasn't old enough to be in a sailing session, but at least she will be able to see the older girls out there sailing and want to do it herself. I love to sail and now want to buy a boat. Well I have always wanted one, but now I am determined to make that happen sooner, even if it is a little Sunfish! Surely those can't cost that much in this day and age! Good thing DH likes to sail too. A sunfish isn't big enough for the whole family, but a nice small one to get the girls used to the idea. I better get them to the pool and start on those swimming lessons, yet again. Maybe this year they will finally master it!

Abs starts theatre camp tomorrow. Wonder if they will be able to get her off the stage?

I miss DQ already but she is probably so busy she won't have time to worry about us. My babies are growing up....

It's about to storm but at least we have light this time. Night.


Always reapply sunscreen to your children more than what they say. Both the girls are burned.

Never let your children apply sunscreen to you, you will end up with strange burn marks across your body.

It was a good time though.

For those of you in Central Texas, we went to Summer Fun Waterpark. It is small enough and less crowded and a much shorter drive than Schlitterbahn, and the girls enjoy it a lot. We will take my nephew back there this summer when he comes to stay for a week. You can take your own drinks and food into the park which really helps cut down on the cost, plus there is a small military discount.
