It"s a Crazy Wonderful Life

This is a blog about my family and the crazy life in the Sims Household. We have 5 children, ranging from 14 to 5, and seem to be going in all different directions sometimes. The purpose of this blog is to help keep our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives.

Things here on the home front are pretty good. We made a trip to the doctor this week for Tiffany, she has strep throat again. This is the third time this season already. I am beginning to think it is time to go to the ENT to talk about tonsils coming out. Thankfully she recovers quickly as soon as she gets antibiotics. In addition, Jake has already had 3 ear infections this season and it is his first winter season since losing his ear tubes. The problem there is that he also allergic to lots of antibiotics, so we have to use the heavy stuff and I hate to see him on them so frequently. We may just make it a double appointment and surgery for both the kids if necessary over Spring Break. I will be calling later today to set up the appointments with the doctor.

I got the call from our Vet yesterday. It turns out that Mandy did have a cancerous mammery gland tumor. She feels confident that she got it all though and that Mandy shouldn't have any further problems. She said the cancer is not one known to metasticize. So while it was disconcerting to know that Mandy had cancer, I was glad to know that it will likely not be a concern. Mandy is healing well and seems to be getting back to normal now just a week post surgery.

The rest of us are doing well. Mike is busy at work and very happy to have his new Assistant Project Manager that started this week. Kayleeis doing great in school and having a lot of fun wither her friends and her cousin. She is looking forward to the Valentine's Dance that will be held this Friday. Jacob is busy as always, but he is doing well in school and is working hard on learning to read.

Kyle is struggling a bit with separation anxiety. It is strange to me since he is almost 4, but since the move, and then the shuffling of bedrooms, I think his world still feels a bit unsettled. He cries for just a couple of minutes when I leave him at preschool each time. It is really hard to leave him crying, but his teacher says it lasts for less than 2 minutes. She tells me it is just a show for me. I hope he gets over it soon though because I hate it. He is also struggling with sleeping at night. We have never had a child who slept with us at night, but somehow, I wake up about 3 mornings a week to him in our bed. He just climbs right in and goes back to sleep between Mike and I. I think it is getting better and certainly not as frequent as it used to be.

I have had a bit of a rough day today. I think I am just super hormonal or something today because I have cried at least twice already this morning. I don't even know what got me going. I have been thinking about mom and missing her today but it is not a "special day" or anything so I don't know what it is. I miss her all the time, but I don't cry about it as much anymore. It mist be the hormones. Well, I guess that is all for today, I need to get bak to the house work. Until later....
