My 4 yr old is awesome. He not only wakes up when he has to throw up, he makes it to the bathroom to do it appropriately. It was a long long night for both of us but at least I wasn't washing sheets all night too! I felt so bad for him. No fever, just stomach and later intestinal upset. He's still in bed listening to cds and "resting" Very much not like my little active one. He is keeping things down now so I have to rehydrate. For once his little sister decided to go with Daddy without a big "want mummy "screaming fuss first. So it is quiet here and I don't like it!!! This morning my DH got up with DD2 so I could sleep and just as I got back to sleep called my cell to see what to give her for breakfast... Sleep is for the weak and sickly, both of which I will be when I have time!

It has been hectic with a new 2 year old and a jealous 4 year old. I am on my way this week to GA to help my daughter in law when she has surgery. My son has been sent to Iraq (all prayers wanted and gratefully accepted). When I am down there I will have three sets of "twins" One set is 15, one is 4 an done is 2 plus of course one invalid. The oly time that will change is when she is actually in the hospital, then I will have an extra 3 year old as well since the woman driving her needs to drop him off also. Should be really rocking and rolling for awhile. I am packing lots of craft ideas and paper projects to do while we are there!! Thanks God it is warm there and they can all play outside! This isn't a complaint actually I am looking forward to seeing all of them just concerned about my patience levels and when I will get laundry done and dinner cooked!! The plane trip down with my 2 has me a little 'whelmed as well!
They do still happen. As I type this my DS2 is using his computer and his DS2 is playing with her kitchen stuff. It is the first time in recent memory that I am alone to do something unemcumbered. Not that I object to their "help" right now I miss it but it is nice to type without a little hand hitting other keys and another one whining at my side. I like this once in awhile. We played a game of Candyland Bingo today together. It was really fun to see her play her first game. Shortlived as it was the miracle is over and now I have to go help on the computer! I am glad they still need me.
My DH and I are trying to decide if we want to sell our house (poor market right now and the main business in town just got sold so there will be a bunch of people laid off and maybe leaving.) or rent. Renting is riskier but at least we have a place to live while he job hunts. If it sold before he finds a job east then we'd have to rent and we have pets. Not sure what is best yet but we'll pray about it.
