Just 49 to go...

You did it!  THANK YOU for all of your help and for the kind comments.   I am committed to those 50 posts I promised!   Can you even stand the excitement?!!  (;   Parker and Taylor are thrilled-- they love to read the blog and have complaining lately that we haven't been writing often enough.  If tonight is any indication, they will not let me slack in those 50 posts.  ("MOM, have you written tonight yet?"  "MOM, don't forget to post tonight!"  "MOM, you promised 50 posts, remember?"  "MOM, don't go to bed until you write!"  etc, etc.)  I told them to thank my friend, "The Muse," and my mom, "LaRita," for beefing up the comments.  (:

Speaking of two cute boys, Taylor and Parker had a basketball game tonight.  They played GREAT and are so much fun to watch!  I'm so proud of them, if still a little bitter about the prank they pulled on me.  There is a lady that attends their games (her grandson is on the team) that is so cute.  She is enamoured with the kids and with our family dynamic.  She'll say things like, "Oh, there you are--  the lady that sits around and eats bon bons all day!" or "Oh, there's Miss Serenity," or "So how's the lady with the peaceful, easy life?"  She makes me smile.  Sometimes just having someone recognize that your load isn't light makes your load a bit lighter, don't you think?  (:

Well, I'm sure you will forgive me if I wrap this post up quickly.  You see, I managed to drop a small weight on my finger earlier today, resulting in this:

If you can't tell, it's very puffy and VERY sore.  This means that every time I type an "s", "w", or "x" I wince with pain.  Fun.  I'm not sure which hurts worse right now-- my finger or my throat.  After two weeks of wiping noses every other minute and having all nine kids cough all over me and rocking and holding the sweet littles as they fevered, I finally got the lovely sickness going around our house.

At least I can lay in my bed and eat bon bons all day!  (;


P.S.  Is it just me, or were there a lot of those aforementioned letters in this post?  Ouch!
