OK so I am tired of being sick. And it is beautiful out side. It is a whole 65 the kids are begging to get wet with the hose. I think it should be at least 68 and not breezy out side. am I wrong or what, it is Alaska after all. The boys want to do a hot dog fire tonight. I just don't think my lungs are up to it. they do not like having a cold and they really do not like smoke so I think that is out to. Mean MOM..
I did however go shopping with our mom and my girls today we drove into Anchorage and went to Kohls! We are so the lower 48 with all our new stores. First Target and now Kohls can't weight for what comes next...I know how hick of me to drive 45 miles to go to Kohls:) But it was a beautiful drive and we got to go to Costco for lunch.. Love those Hot dogs. OK so I am so a Hick.

I am sick today. The family has been sick for the past couple of days. And now I am SICK. This would not be such a bad thing if I was just kind of sick but I really don't feel good. Maybe I have swine flue? Or not
Anyway I woke up this morning with the resolve to not let the kids play the wi , computer or watch TV today. We have become a family of slackers. I have even been letting the kids eat in front of the TV. I know...Don't tell anyone
So of course this is the day I am sick. So the kids are trying to fend for themselves with the I don't have anything to do's. It amazes me how they can easily find things to do when the TV is off there were only a couple of "I don't have anything to do" until they all happily started to play together. They have played outside and inside and a couple of Bord games. They even did some school things. It is amazing how much less fighting there is and how much more they play together when the TV, video and computers are off.
Oh yah Grandpa brought dad home and dad brought home Pizza Got to go

Have you read the nie nie blog? how is it that A total stranger can effect you so profoundly? I wounder if her family is going through there trials at the same time my family is So that she can blog and I can remember how blest I am.

I was blog hopping and read her post from a couple of days ago. And her thoughts were like a mirror of my own in the gratitude I have for my heavenly father. And the fact that my husband is with me, I am never alone. It is so comforting to know that there are other families that have had life changing things happen to them and are still going strong. the Lord Loves us!

We are quickly coming up on the one year anniversary of Rays "incident" He has made incredible progress and yet is still not "whole" I see in our near future Ray being done with what therapy they can give him, so the by weekly visits to the therapy will be over but the struggle to regain every thing will continue. I know the lord knows our family and has a plane I just wish he would share it with me.

Something else nie nie said was that she would not dwell on what was but what is to come. Oh how I wish I could learn that lesson.
that is my new goal.

I have to let go of what was and embrace that what can be.

I have to say that I have not been a great blogger lately I have not had use of a lap top or wireless Internet so if I wanted to blog or even check email I had to go into my office. How archaic! But thanks to my very generous brother in law and my very handy father I am siting in my quite room enjoying my very cool view and BLOGGING!!
