Fishing Fun

Here is the trip that started it all.

It kind of makes me cringe but it really was such a good day.

Of course, I caught the biggest fish. We measured. ;)

Random 5 on Friday (A bit late!) ~ April 28th

It may be Monday and not Friday but I have a pretty good excuse!

The Pebble Pond

1. Many of you all know this but it has been a very rough week. I have been in and out of the hospital. One StatCare visit, 2 Emergency Rooms, one family doctor and one hospital admittance. Each doctor had a different diagnosis which caused me to only get worse instead of starting to heal. It turns out that I have cellulitus a form of staph infection. I guess I shaved my legs with a dull razor and then got myself into some poison oak (or something similar) and my body didn't like it. Now I have a mess of a staph infection on my leg that is not responding to antibiotics. As of right now, it is just staying the same but at least it is not getting any worse. I only stayed in the hospital for 24 hours. I couldn't stand being away from my family. The doctor said that was fine as long as I come back at any sign of things getting worse.

I have to sit with my leg elevated. Other than walks to the bathroom. Blah. I feel like I am losing my mind.

2. Morgan would not leave my side the whole time I was in the hospital. The other kids didn't like it either but she was a mess. Poor girl. She got to spend the night with me and got spoiled by the nurses. She loved it.

3. Brian has missed work and that has completely set us back on saving for a house. Such a bummer. Along with that we have spent money on eating out and other things because having a momma in such a mess kind of puts a damper on things. Then add in the money spent on prescriptions and the doctor bills. I'm trying really hard not to stress.

4. That is not working very well. I feel really depressed. Between the money or lack there of, being stuck sitting and doing nothing and my leg not healing....I am feeling pretty down. I'm trying to keep my spirits up. I find myself being short and grumpy with the kids and Brian.

5. On a good note, having Brian home has been nice. Him and the kids spent most of the time with me when I was in the hospital. He took me outside and pushing me around in a wheelchair. Good thing it was Saturday so the hospital was not very busy because he was racing me down the hall and popping wheelies. He even picked me the biggest flower out of the hospital flower garden. Haha....I told him that was going to show up on our bill!

Yesterday he was able to get some stuff done around the house that needed done. He cleaned out the chicken pen, handed out chores so the house got clean and the grass is mowed, sharpened the mower blades, played around with the tiller and took care of me.

Random 5 on Friday ~ April 11th

The Pebble Pond

1. We got all our papers to the mortgage company. We are waiting. And waiting. We should hear something today or Monday with our pre-approval. Most people do not have to weigh so heavily on this answer but our credit was very bad. We are FINALLY seeing the fruits of our labor and I'm so excited! Please pray we get a good answer and we are approved for a decent amount.

2. If you read my post last Saturday, you know I have to be EXTREMELY diligent about saving money. It is not proving to be an easy task. Today is payday so it is the real kicker. Skimp. Skimp. Skimp.

I decided to start selling candles again for a short time. I am hoping that will bring in a little extra. Every bit counts. If you are interested in candles, let me know! :)



3. Breakfast today? Donuts. Don't judge.

4. We will be running errands in the rain today. I wish it was nice and sunny but at least it is not cold. What is your weather like?

5. I had a dream last night that I was pregnant with twins. I even got to go to Germany to deliver them with my little sister. Weird but I would LOVE to be pregnant. Especially with twins. Even weirder was after the delivery there was 3 babies instead of 2 but I didn't complain. I wouldn't either. Although my husband might! ;)
