Thank you SO much for everyone who de-lurked this week! Now on to the questions - Fun fun!
Question #1 from Jennifer from The Foster Family
Who is your blog crush?
Oh crap! Like I said in my comments I should have seen this coming from a mile away. And...how can I answer without hurting feelings? Because you know who you are, really you do. I know...you're thinking, me? Yes, you. I love your blog. I love your attitude and your sense of humor. Love love love love you!!
Question #2 from Soliloquy from She Just Had To Say It
What one thing could your husband do for you that would fully communicate his deep and undying affection for you? (I hope he's reading.) ((You're welcome.))
Ah yes, Gary does read and if he truly loved me, he would get contacts. For reals...
In all seriousness, (and turn away if you are squeamish) Gary shows me deep and undying affection in so many little ways everyday. There is not a day that goes by when I don't feel completely loved by him. He is the best thing that has ever come my way and I am blessed beyond measure. And Thank You...for reals...
Question #3 from Linda from Twice The Love
How are the girls sleeping these days???
Even though you caught up on some previous posts I am going to answer this. We have felt like we shouldn't let the girls cry a whole lot at nap or bed time because of their sore throats...since last March. They have been sick off and on since then. Their throat cultures came back negative on Friday (whoo-hoo!). The specialist said for us to come back there to get a thorough culture the next time we think they have it. If they continue to get it, we will go ahead with tonsil removal. I am really really hoping it is gone for good. I think the Penicillin shots they got last week knocked it out.
OK, on to the sleep issues. Gary got tough with them this week. With the last round of Strep came stuffy noses, coughing, and misery all around. In order for any of us to get any kind of rest we started getting them out of their cribs to sleep with us in our bed or sitting up sleeping in the recliner. They had started getting up 4-5 times a night again. This went on for weeks and we were exhausted! And I don't do well on no sleep. I cannot function. Things were heading South fast. Hence the getting tough on Gary's part. Starting this last Monday night we are not getting them out of their cribs at night anymore. We do go in and comfort them, but do not take them out. It has been a rough few nights, but we are staying strong. If they had their own rooms, it would be SO much easier because just when one is settling down the other will wake up, only to settle down just as the other gets a fresh wind. It has gone on for HOURS at night. We know it will get better, we know this. We know it will take time and we believe with all of our poor little hearts that sleep is in our near future. So keep us in your prayers. I would have already given in (I know!! BAD SARA!!) but Gary is tough as nails about this and I know he is right. (See? One more thing he does that shows his devotion to my and our family)
And I am going to stop here for now. I will answer the rest of the questions in the next post. If you have any more just leave them here or in the de-lurking post and I will answer them. Even if you don't have a Blogger account, you can comment as Anonymous and ask me anything. And you feel like it, you can actually put your own name so I know who is de-lurking.
