Oh poor, neglected blog!

I'm horrible about blogging.  I wanted to blog at least once a week but I believe it's been longer than that.  As you can imagine, life it quite busy with being alone with four kiddos day in and day out!  I do manage 'down' time of course, but my blog seems to not have a place in there! 

We had a great time with Zach's brother and family visiting.  The boys had so much fun wrestling, playing Wii, guns and who knows what else with their 'boy cousins'.  Hannah enjoyed little Sadie over.  I enjoyed the adult time and help.  Miah even watched all the boys and all us girls went out and did a bit of shopping.  It was wonderful and such a blessing!

My aunt came also, on her trek back up to Michigan.  We had a good time with her.  We even hit some garage sales.  The kids love their Aunt Cindy- even Abby!  Abby still asks for her dog, Keesha!  Most dogs to Abby are "Daisy" but there's been a few times where she's asked for Keesha!  It was so nice to have the company.  You don't realize how 'lonely' you get for adults.  Sure, I'm busy all day long and with 4 little people around me, but come night time when they finally quiet down in their beds I really miss my 'socialization'! 

Last week I ended up going to the hospital.  I had this horrible pain that was a kidney stone!  I didn't know it at the time, but the pain I was in I knew I couldnt' stay home!  By the time my friend got me to the hospital the pain was pretty much gone (go figure) so of course they couldn't say for sure that's what it was.  But that night, sure enough, I passed a stone.  A funny part of this whole story: While I was in the bathroom leaving a 'sample' the nurse was asking my friend questions about me.  I guess she asked how to spell my last name, what number pregnancy this was.  Then I came back and she began asking me questions.  After she left Sonja was telling me about the questions she was asking her and we put two and two together and we think she thought Sonja was my PARTNER!!!!!!!!!!!  We just laughed and laughed and laughed about it.  Both Sonja and I didn't have on wedding rings and her hair is a bit just could have looked that way, especially in Des Moines! 

I tackled a lot of garage sales last weekend and made out like a bandit.  I spent entirely too much money so I am not even looking at the options for this weekend (plus I already told my sitter I don't need her tomorrow).  I think I'm really getting squared away on things I need for Naomi.  I finally began buying diapers for her this past pay check so that I can be stocked up on those.  Right now my friend Sarah is watching the kids for me.  She offered to take them and I also passed up the offer!!!  I was thinking how we have school to do and yadda yadda.  I went grocery shopping ALONE for the first time in 6 WEEKS and am just enjoying the silence at home.  At night I've been having to deal with the boys playing, laughing, playing and not going to sleep so it's never really 'quiet' for me, I feel like.  So this is wonderful! 

Speaking of nights, Abby has been waking up a lot lately.  I'm not sure what that's all about but it drives me crazy.  She will stand at the gate in her room and won't say anything (but I hear her there).  I guess she eventually lays on the floor there and falls asleep.  No way am I getting up every time, as it is there are probably about 2 times a night I do have to get up with her and put her back in her bed and explain that I need to sleep in my own bed!  Add in 2-3 bathroom trips a night and I'm already back to sleepless nights!  I'd much rather have sleepless nights with a new baby in my arms, but that will be here soon enough!

There's a little update for anybody who still checks this thing.  I'm going to enjoy some more of my book in the quiet before I have to go and get my little munchkins!

I'm having trouble blogging too, and I am not as busy as you! It's hard to find the time to write coherently, especially when there is facebook lol.
That's funny about the hospital I guess nurses can never assume anymore lol.

I laughed so hard reading about the nurse! I suppose they "see it all" in their job.
