Ready and Back!

Because so much has happened lately I will make a quick update bullet style:

  • Work has been HELL for the past weeks! Some days I have gone by without even taking my lunch breaks and being in the office at times at 4:30 am in order to complete some last minute projects.

  • Hubby managed to get an overnight stay at the hospital with a diverticulitis attack. He got to the hospital just on time. The doctor informed him that he was about an hour away from having a ruptured intestine. It was a big scare for us. He will be seeing a nutritionist next and has vowed to keep to his diet. It broke my heart seeing him in so much pain and not able to console him in any way and leave him there. I made it home at 12:30 am.

  • The next day that Hubby was left in the hospital, Joey was to leave to Puerto Rico. We had to be in the airport at 6:00 am. I live an hour away from the airport. I barely got 3 hours of sleep. Got up and got a hospital bag for ready hubby as well as getting the two little ones up and in there school clothes and out the house by 5:00 am.

  • After we dropped Joey off and said our goodbye's I had to console little Luis and Mickey. They were really upset that Joey will not be home from this Christmas season.

  • Drove an hour back to my side of the woods to drop the kids at school for their Christmas party. Mickey started to barf in my SUV. I called my mom and dropped him off at her house and headed to the hospital.

  • On my way to the hospital I get a call from work that our dialer is down and I need to get there ASAP. (I work at a marketing call center and the dialer is the heart of our company)

  • It broke my heart to get to the hospital and not be able to stay with hubby for a while. He was very understanding and knew that I just needed to get to the office to get things working.

  • Hubby was finally sent home and is well on his recovery. I am looking forward to a quiet and relaxing Christmas.

  • I am almost done wrapping all my gifts and they are hidden in my walking closet that is no longer a walking closet cause you can't walk past the door from all of the gifts stashed there. LOL!

  • I only have 3 gifts that I need to buy and I should be over and done with this weekend.

  • I have really missed my little ole blog. I look forward to catching up with all my blogs this weekend.


  • I just got this txt message pic of the boys at home with their Daddy. It just made my day!

PS, Almost forgot I made the most yummy cranberry, white chocolate, pecan cookies for the boys teachers they were a HUGE hit! I will post the recipe here this weekend for all of you
