LIFE and all the responsibilities i.e. family, kids, work, just take over. Kinda funny how that works. Sometimes being an adult just sucks the life out of all the fun. LOL. I am sure everyone can relate to that at some point or another.
Tyler had another football and now basketball season under his belt. He didn't end up having much of a football season because on the 3rd game, he was hit real hard from the front/back simultaneously and landed in the hospital for 4 days with a collapsed lung.
Then from there it went right into his 16th Birthday and the holidays. Yes, he is 16 now and chomping to get his license. He has his permit and has been driving with everyone but me. I think I have taken him driving 3x now. My heart just couldn't take it early on. I am sure he is much better now so maybe, just maybe, we will venture out again soon. I said MAYBE.
He got his first job. He starts this week. He is hoping that he can save enough for a car by the start of next school year.
You wanna build a snowman?
Holidays of course was a whirlwind of doing this, that and the other. Going here, there and everywhere. Each year I say next year we are going to do things differently. Well this year, I mean it. I would really love to just take the money that we spend on toys that are broken in less than a week and put it towards a holiday away and then maybe just get one coveted gift for each. Maybe rent a house up on the mountain or beach. Sounds so nice right about now.
Fast forward to these past couple weeks and Hayden, our 7 year old has been seriously sick. He has had a fever since Feb 17th that has come and gone, only gone for like two days. He was in the hospital for two days last week, discharged, a few days went by with a low grade fever and then it came back again this past Thursday. No underlying symptoms. They ran every test known to man and can't figure it out. Some super virus. Scary. We took him back to the Dr. again on Friday and again nothing. Keep him comfortable, push the fluids, control the fever with Advil/Tylenol is what they say. Again, scary. So here we are. It is Sunday and his fever is still hovering at 100 but he seems to be coming around again. He is finally eating a little bit. The sun is shining here today so we are going to get him out in the sun for some much needed Vitamin D. I am hoping that this is the last of it. It is so hard to watch your children when they are sick and there is not much anyone can do for them.

The youngest and the oldest are both doing well. The oldest is still going to college, working, living on her own a few blocks away. She is seriously starting to talk about buying her first house. The lending market is good here but the house market is a sellers market so we shall see. The youngest is growing like a weed and looking forward to starting kindergarten in the fall. She is as cute as can be and like a sponge. She soaks it all in and then some. Really have to be careful around that little one. She just melts our hearts.

How are you and your family doing? I feel like I haven't read, commented on, lurked much on any blogs lately...I guess I really haven't. Hoping that I can get back into writing some. I do miss it.
Hope everyone is well!
Stop in and say hi sometime.
