The Best News!

The following is not the best news…..that comes at the end, lol. Grant has the chicken pox…I think.  Fever for 2 days, spots starting in the diaper area, spreading all over….  He was pretty miserable before the spots broke out yesterday evening.  But feels a lot better now. This is perfect timing for us.  I hope this doesn’t sound mean, but it would be nice if Brandon and W.D. come down with it soon.  Then the whole family would have life time immunity.

My Green Beans and Okra are up.

The sweet bell peppers have blossomed–the chili peppers have not.  Maybe they won’t cross-pollinate?

Our house in Kansas City is listed for sale!  4 bedroom 2 full 2 half baths.  All new inside…..you’d love it.  And it’s priced to sell.

And the best news of all:

Mark is coming to build out my office shelves tomorrow.  We’ve been busy all weekend priming and painting the cut boards.

I ordered 200 of these last night to organize all my fabric with. It saved me more than $380 to do it this way than to buy the boards manufactured for organizing fabric. I found the idea from pinterest which took me to Smashed Peas and Carrots.  Check out the inspiring photo below.  Click on the blog title to find out more.

    I used to wish my kids would get chicken pox to ‘get it over with’ but after talking to one of my relatives about how painful shingles is I decided after much thought to get my kids immunized for chicken pox. (1 in3 people who have had chicken pox will get shingles at some point in their life – so the statitics go anyway).

    Good on you to decide to organize your fabric! I have two bins of fabric and always have to practically empty them to find the piece I want. You’re gonna have one awesome “mom room”, I can’t wait to see it when you get it all done.

    Katrina, I know what you mean about shingles. My Dad had them and it was terrible. We decided against immunization for a multitude of reasons. On of them is because immunity done that way is not permanent and it’s more miserable to have chicken pox as an adult. When the vaccine first came out it was a live vaccine and many of my friend’s kids who went that route ended up with chicken pox right away. They still have the risk of shingles as an adult. So….we just decided to do it the old fashioned way.

    I’m not sure yet. I emailed some over to Brett today, but he will need to go in and take his own too.

    I would love my kids to have chicken pox, but no one around my way has them. My ex had chicken pox as an adult and he was off wrok for 3 weeks.

    I had chicken pox as an adult (pregnant too) and have since had shingles (also while pregnant). We exposed all of our kids to chicken pox to try to do it the “old-fashioned” way and none of them caught it. We did go ahead and vaccinate them later. None of them have had it yet. Hope Grant recovers quickly!
