so did you miss me??!

i'm back. well sort of. i just wanted to give you all an update. before you start 'un-following' me because i'm neglecting you all.
know that i am not neglecting you all.
i love you guys.
i love that you forgive me for not blogging. :0)
my kiddos are on the upward and not the downward any more.
it was on LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG. weekend. time a thousand and three hundred ninty six percent long.
it's been a long week already too.
yesterday we took the girls for their 'recheck' they are doing better. i also asked the np if she'd check dustin. she did. yay. that saves me a 'paranoid' mom trip to the er. :0) and about two hundred dollars!! yikes. i may have to just ask for money for my birthday to pay our medical bills we aquired this weekend. 500 buckeroos to the er and urgent care. not to mention the money i STILL owe them from dustin's birth. oy vey!!
we're actually working on getting a loan from the bank to pay off some bills. hoping that will turn things in a better direction around here. i'm a habitual plastic user. bad bad bad. i know. i don't need to hear it. i already know it. i just need some discipline. major.
in other news...i've tried convincing shaun that we're ready for another baby. lol. yet at the er when they did the x-ray i said "i better not be" when she asked me if i was preggo. well i guess i'm not quite ready...but really i think in the next few months a baby would be just fine with me. so we'll see how THAT goes.
ohhhh the rest of our date night. well after spending a bit of time at our lovely ER we went to johnathan's. YUM-O!! and for all you people not in WI...sorry there is only the one in appleton. but PLEASE feel free to visit. i'll treat you!! i mean if you come all the way to wisconsin to meet little 'ole me...dinner is worth it. because i'd love to meet any one of you in real life. in fact i've been so blessed to meet a few of you already!! and some of you are my family...so i guess you count too!!
ohhhh and i'm going to the melting pot on thursday for ladies night. again YUM-O! super excited. my mom and sister are going for the very first time. mmmmmm. cheese and chocolate fondue...what's better...
so i suppose. my kiddos are in need of me. so i must 'neglect' you all again. toodles. and i hope to get back to 'regular scheduled' programming ((commenting, blogging, etc)) soon. :0)

okay so i posted this, and realized i did not fill you in on shaun's eye. it is doing okay. the first layer of his eye is getting better...but the lower layers are a bit inflamed. so we have to watch it. well not 'we' but the eye doctor. so please keep that in prayer. mucho gracias. ((okay i have no idea where that spanish just came from....))

15 loving words from you.:

I've never been to Jonathan's. When I went to Wicked with my cousin, we ate at Victoria's downtown and had awesome Italian food. I'd love to try the melting pot--maybe we should have a double date sometime!
