Everybody seems to be getting better. I sure hope that there are not any recurrences! Last night the monkeys were in bed asleep by 8:30. I was asleep by 9:00. Andy woke up 2 times and everyone else slept all night YEA!!!! This was the first time since Mon. night. So I got about 10 hours sleep! YEA! I hope they do that good tonight. But it is 9 and they are still up, maybe by 9:30/10.
We now have a gate in the hall between their rooms and the living room. They can open it, but it is not for them. It is for their toys. They all seem to end up in the living room and no one knows how they got there. Strange... Any way they can't get down the hall now with the larger of the toys, so they can't get to the living room. They have also been told that anything left in the living room will be going into the trash. Well not really, but into the storage room, maybe never to be seen again for months. I loose things in there all the time and don't find them for months.
I think tomorrow I am going to load up the snot machines and we are going to go somewhere. Every one else carries their kids out with snotty noses, why can't I. With one exception, I will keep their noses wiped. I can't stand to see a little kid with dried snot on their face. At home is one thing, but when you go some where, wipe it off.
Oh well/ Levi has discovered I am not in the living room and now has his snotty nose stuck under the door calling me. Got to go!

Well all 3 monkeys are sick now. After a night from you know where, they all went to the doctor today. Abbie & Andy - real bad colds. Levi - real bad cold w/chest congestion. So Levi gets prescriptions. And the doctor tells me "Wait until he has been asleep for about 30 mins. before you give him that medicine". WHAT?!? "Well it will make him hyper and he won't go to sleep." Oh great, just what we need, some thing to make one of the monsters hyper. So I am waiting for Levi to be asleep for awhile to give him this med. It should be interesting!
I am hoping they sleep tonight, it would be really bad if Mike missed any more sleep! Yea right. He got up 2 times before midnight last night. Decided he needed some cough med. and I didn't see him until this morning. Poor thing I hope he gets to sleep all night tonight. On top of that he got up and took prescription cough medicine this morning. Mike can't take a no-doze Benadryl with out it knocking him out. Real smart on his part.
Levi just got his medicine. He did good now, just don't wake up bouncing off the walls!
I still haven't got my Christmas stuff down. I guess if it is still up next year all I will have to do is plug it up. That would be a short cut. But it does look kind of funny having a Santa out in the yard and trees on the porch. Maybe next week.
Have a good night!

Well everybody is sick now. Abbie jumped on the band wagon last nigh and Andy tonight. I hate it when they are like this. 3 monkey that can't breath, coughing and gaging doesn't make for sleeping good. Levi didn't sleep good last night, by lunch today he was on the love seat sound asleep. He slept till 4:30 and then went to bed tonight with out giving me a hard time. Abbie napped for about 2 hours today. She went to sleep tonight really easy also. Andy didn't go to sleep. I had to run to WM and I asked him if he wanted to go with me. YES! So off to WM we went. Uncle Alan met us up there so it was really a treat to him. All of my attention plus Uncle Alan's! This was the first time that Andy & I have been anywhere just the 2 of us. I think we are going to start doing this more often. If I need to go some where when Mike is home I am going to rotate who goes, but I will start taking one of them each time.
Tomorrow I have got to get the rest of the Christmas decorations put up. Nothing has been taken down out side. I just don't really care right now. But I am going to try, if nothing else comes up.
For the last 2 nights I have been up with the monkeys, tonight they are sleeping and I am sitting here wide awake. I have not slept over 3 or 4 hours the last 2 nights. Why is it like this? Mike is even here tonight so if I didn't hear them he would. Oh well, I am going to go give it a try.
Good Night!

Hey, it has been a quite few days. But I guess it is over for now. Levi has got the crud. Stuffy nose and chest congestion. I am kind of wondering if he is going to have to go to the doc. If so it will be the first time he has had to go for being sick. Not to bad considering he is 3. Andy has never been for being sick either. Now Abbie has been a couple of times and has also had to have her head sewed up. Right now she holds the record.
This morning we had waffles for breakfast. I was putting Abbie's plate away and turned around and Andy & Levi had a streak of pancake syrup right down the middle of their hair. I got as much as possible out and gave them a hair cut. I had told them I was going to if they did this again. But I think they like their hair cuts. I do! I will make some pictures tomorrow. They are so ticklish that you almost have to chase them to cut their hair, so tomorrow I have got to even it up some. Abbie was mad because I would not cut hers like theirs! Sorry Abbie, I don't think so!
Levi was standing in his chair this morning and some how it turned over. He hit the back if his head and bit his lip. But it never slowed him down. Scared me!
They are upset that it is raining here and they can't go out side. They kept telling me today they were ready to go. They get this from my granny Walker. She was always ready to go. They also love to argue. My granny also love to argue. My mother said she would argue with a sign post and get mad it didn't argue back! Well my boys are just like this.
Abbie got up between 4 & 4:30 this morning. Screaming mama!!! I went in there and she wanted to get on the couch. Well, get on the couch, you didn't need to get me up for that. around 5:15 she started screaming. Went in there and she wanted to give granny a big hug & kiss. Granny left around 7:30 the night before, running a little late Abbie. But she woke Levi up this time. He came into the living room looked around and said "put me in the bed mama". He was not impress with Abbie, to early in the morning. Around 6, she did it again! Her "blankey" needed to be tied. I tied the "blankie", turned on the TV and laid on the couch hoping it would be good enough I was in the same room with her and she would let me sleep. WRONG! 6:30, I am not even sure what it was this time. At breakfast she looked at me and says "Abbie slept good last night!" I almost pinched her head off for that!
Well I think everyone is asleep in the living room. I will put them in the bed a finish cleaning up. I am going to stay up to see if Levi's fever goes up any, if so give him some more med. at midnight.
Have a good night!
