Did ya miss me? :-) That flu really had hold of our family. Still isn't all the way gone yet. The kids still don't eat well and they now act like they have bad colds. We've upgraded to that. Doctors visits and prescriptions have become part of life this past month. Glad that they are finally getting better. I hate seeing kids sick!

We spent the day coloring eggs and making chocolate covered peanut butter eggs (very much like the Reese's PB eggs, but the kids claim they are better. HAHAHA!!!) No luck on a house yet. We're seriously considering just adding on here - would be a lot cheaper than buying and we'd end up with a nice sized house and done the way we'd like it.

I'm working on my grafting class and have been doing pretty good. My grades aren't bad - actually pretty good for not being in college for over ahem years. You don't think I'd really admit how long I've been out of school, do you? LOL!! My first grafts still look alive, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will take. Have 2 other types to do yet - may work on them tomorrow. We'll see how much dinner and the holiday activities take over my day.

We are having a modest dinner tomorrow - ham, gravy, mashed potatoes, maple-candied sweet potatoes, broccoli with cheese sauce, cauliflower with a bread crumb topping, and some home made candies for dessert. Dessert?!!! HA! No one will eat it, so I didn't do anything special except for the candies. They always stuff themselves on the main meal.

We have started the process to get licensed for foster care. Our adoption councelor has been trying to get us to become foster parents, but we've been putting it off for a bit. We were approved a few years ago, but the agency we went with closed, so we accepted it as a sign - after all that time, money and work to get there, and then the doors closed, and the worst thing was they never let us know. We waited, and waited, and waited to hear from them - leaving messages, and not getting any return calls. That didn't sit very well but now that I look back, I don't really think we were mature enough to have handled the situations that we can face. Heck, now I wonder, but raising our own has helped a little. :-)

I hit one of those silly little internet quizes again - yah I know, I'm just a sucker - but this one hit me funny. And I loved the book as a kid!!!!

You're Watership Down!

by Richard Adams

Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're
actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits.
