Because of my headache, and trying to stay involved and available if the kids wanted someone to play with (which they hardly ever want to play with Mommy), I didn't work terribly hard on house projects today. I did wipe down every surface with Lysol today to get rid of these nasty germs. I plan to get just the countertop, doorknobs and lightswitches every day until we kick this thing. Thieves oil cleaner is good for that, too, or lemon and vinegar. But I have the Lysol, so I'll use it up. I don't normally wipe everything down because I want to allow the kids' immune systems to build up on their own, but this cold is ridiculous, going from one person to the next, to the next, and then back to the original person. I'm tempted to call the doctor and ask for everyone to be put on antibiotics so that we can all get over it at once. Mine is definitely a sinus infection because of the color of the nasties. SO, all that to say, I cleaned and I'm tired of being sick.
|Yeah, sissy's bed is the best place to nest!|
|He had me put all the stuff from his bed up to her bed to get comfy cozy.|
|Then I showed Benaiah what Keturah had done with the label maker, and demonstrated how it worked by printing this sign out: Benaiah's Brain. Yup, he''s goofy.|
|Mmmmm.....MM's....just like Grandma Johnson and Mommy love! Too cute!|
It was sent to our college age small group called 24/7 a few minutes after another email about the group itself. The title of the emails was NEWS and it was sent on Monday, October 22, 2001.

Awww, I totally read this and hear Jared's voice and how excited he was, and how, wow, our life is going to change! We were the first ones married in our group, and to have a baby. Fun times! And that little "bean" was Benaiah of course. And that little BJ is the big brute of a man child you see today. From this:
