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.

Well, Kaylee had her surgery and all went well. While she was home recovering, Tiffany was sick for 3 days. It turns out she probably had H1N1, which Kaylee then got also. Tiffany missed 3 days of school and between Kaylee's finger and H1N1, she missed 8 days of school. She did sneak back in to school on the Wednesday and Friday after her surgery. Wednesday proved to be too much too soon and she spent all of Thursday in bed, but felt well enough to go back on Friday. Then on Sunday she spiked a fever and missed another 4 days of school thanks to the Flu which copletely kicked her butt (probably because she was just recovering from her surgery). Thankfully Kaylee and Tiffany were the only ones that got the flu and everyone else has managed to stay healthy. Both girls are doing well and this H1N1 wasn't really all the media has hyped it up to be. Thank Goodness!!!

I have once again been dealing with some of my own medical issues. Sometimes I wonder what is going on with me, I am too young to have had so many health issies (my doctor even told me that this week). I have had right lower quadrant abdominal pain for a full week now. It started last Sunday night and was so bad I laid in the fetal postition and cried for a few hours until I finally fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning the pain wasn't near so bad. I have continued to have pain off and on all week so I went to the doctor on Friday. She sent me for an ultrasound and while they don't think it is anything serious, I will be going to see the GYN (yippee) soon to discuss my options. Have I mentioned that I hate going to the doctor? In addition I have to go in tomorrow to have a bunch of labs. They will be checking my kidneys, liver, thyroid, blood counts etc. to figure out what else might be going on. yay me!

Today was the kids' primary program in church. Once a year the primary kids ages 3-11 and their teachers do a program in our sacrament meeting. Each of the children is given a part to say and they sing the songs thay have been learning in primary each sunday throughout the year. The theme this year was My Eternal Family. The kids did a great job and it made me so proud when my little ones stood up at the podium and said their parts. Even Kyle said his little part without any help. It was a great meeting. I always enjoy watching the children sing.

I also had a chance today to teach relief society. I haven't done that for such a long time. I was so nervous, but the lesson went quite well. I am always grateful for class participation and we had lots of it today. The lesson was also on families and the eternal nature of our family relationships. I cried, of course when we talked about parents. But I guess that is okay. I still don't really have a calling in church yet. It's weird because it has been over 2 months since I was released from the young women program. I don't think I have gone this long without a calling since I was 18 years old. Well, I guess technically I do have a calling as the YW assistant volleyball coach, but we only have a couple more games left. I am anxious to see what the Lord has in store for me next.

Everyone is doing well. I will be working this week on cleaning the basement and organizing a bit more around the house as well as finishing up the kids' halloween costumes. I am so excited about the costumes we are doing for the boys. It is going to be so much fun. I will post pictures next week. We have the ward Halloween party this weekend. It will be a blast.

Well, I suppose that is all for now.

I'm so sorry to hear you and the girls have been so sick! I can't imagine that's been any fun, especially with Mike out of town so much. I hope you get your stuff sorted out soon and that it's nothing serious. I hope you feel better! We can't wait to see you guys in a month!

Sure...Debbie leaves you comments...Just kidding! Good update. I am sorry that things haven't been so hot as far as health, but it sounds like you might have some things resolved soon I hope. I too made a halloween costume for Sims this year and it was sooooo much fun. I feel so much more excited about halloween because of it!
