Strep throat

Ryanna woke up twice Saturday night with the worst sore throat ever. On Sunday she couldn't talk normal, had a fever, chills, aches etc.. when I looked at her throat I couldn't see it very well so I just gave her tylenol every 4 hours. I asked her if she wanted to go to the doctor tommorow and she said "NO TODAY." By the time I got home from church and looked at it again it was bad. I mean really bad. It had red blood looking spots, her tonsils were swollen. She said it hurt to cough, sneeze, swollow the whole nine yards. I called Mareah she is the expert when it comes to strep and she said she thought from the diagnosis it was strep and I should get her into a doctor right away. So I headed down to the Instacare in S.L. Luckily no one was there except for us ( I didn't think that happened) so they swabbed her throat and it was all bloody. The results came back... POSITIVE! That's what I get for bragging to everyone that my kids have never had strep (in my face) So since she is still contagious for 24 hrs she will be staying home from school tommorow. I just hope the boys don't get it (knock on wood) Can you imagine Stratton with it?

Card Party!

Last night I went to a card party. We made 20 cards (2 of each) I was there from 7 p.m. until midnight. It was only $7 for all the cards and she lets everyone choose a prize. It was fun. You know me and this kind of stuff.

H.S. Musical On Ice

Thursday night I took Ryanna to High School Musical On Ice. It was awesome! We got there a little early so we bought Ryanna a H.S.M. hat & dipping dots and me some kettle corn & water. We ended up taking the boys to grandma Juliene and sleeping over and letting Ryanna sluff school on Friday to go with us to Shelby's for card day. We had a great time! Well worth the money. Thanks Ryan!

Family Vacation

We are planning a family vacation. We have decided to take the kids over spring break in April to Walt Disney World in Florida. We are so excited. Ryan & I were talking about it and Brayden pipes in "Hey my birthday is April 15th" we hadn't even thought about it, but we will be there for his birthday! What a special birthday it will be for him.

Weight Watchers

I did it. I signed up for Weight Watchers. I hope I can stick with it and knock the pants off of Ryan. (Oh I already do that!) 3 days of working out, how many more to go? All I keep thinking of is President Hinkley's quote "Try a little harder, to be a little better." That's my moto.

Okay I've been inspired. On Friday night we went out to dinner & I saw this girl that used to be gigantic. She has lost 60 pounds in 4 months from joining weight watchers. So last night I had Ryan bring my dusty trendmill back in my bedroom & I got up and did it this morning. Every time I start back excercising I have to ask myself one question "Why in the hell have I done this to myself?" I am considering joining weight watchers online.
