Seriously, I know it's been a
forever while! Truth is, we have all been battling illness since we got over Our **** Summer.
What happened to my Onward and Upward?
I am afraid, I am still asking myself…??
***Even better still, THIS is LAST Friday’s Post lol! ***
Our little family has been facing thee ultimate worst bout of sicknesses over the last two months, that we as an entire family unit have never experienced before; and of which no one can explain….I have just come out of the hospital again, this time only for some oxygen with my new found partner: Pneumonia. I fear however, that Wednesday nights visit is somehow not my last during this … affair. The children are also still sick. LO handling it best, and TEEN handling LO best (for the minimal help she can offer herself).
Anyway, so there’s the reason you guys haven’t heard from us. I am sooo sick. With 2 children completely alone, rest and getting well is very hard to come by. Lately, I have had to my best begging for a rest relief period for (at least) an hour and mainly only, from my one parent/friend/family (only person I know, closely enough) here in the neighbourhood, besides my fantastic neighbors down the way. Don’t like asking them for help a lot because let’s face it, I basically have to live with them lol. Plus, they already hugely stepped up too when had my meningitis!
My mom is also a single handed home owner and full time employed healthy superhero. She has to sail her own boat too. Thankfully, she can usually grab the generally needed stuff when sick like this, an ambulance, 2 kids, coffee, & some hospital masks stuffed in her purse. She’s not handling it well and is seemingly on the verge of seriously cutting me and my children out of her life completely. I mean it! And I don’t blame her one bit! (for this anyway)! I am beyond sick and tired, and eons passed my last nerve.
Enough of my rambling, here’s last weeks…
*** Back to last weeks Link Day Friday POST ***

This first string art pumpkin is my favorite. I am really loving this technique seen in many different DIY settings as of late but, I just don’t seem to have all tools needed (as usual lol)!
However … LO & I (mom) have Sinus Infections (cant hear see smell taste eat grrrrrr!), and TEEN has mystery illness. My teen, now known as “mystery girl“–had her first (mystery illness) with no diagnosis at 6, we haven't stopped calling her that. She always seems to catch the germs no Pediatric Specialist could even decifer the code for. Well, now “mystery girl” has done it again. Obvious results from Doctor yesterday showing signs of infection, duh; of course a slight positive for Mononeucleosis at ER Doctor today; whom is sending her tomorrow to Pediatrician Hospital Doctor, 45 minutes away.
Did I mention how incredibly excited LO & I sick as dogs are to get dragged along during all these snot filled horrible boring hospital trips. Not that I really care however, becuase someone better get to the bottom of this illness! It's getting exhausting especially for TEEN whom just wants to feel better yesterday… ;(
What we did at our house this Season, was buy a large bag of small pumpkins. Due to the illnesses I’ve had to think “inside the box” (“inside the house” that is); finding various creations to share.
