UGH! I don't feel good! I have been fighting off a cold for a few days, but I can feel it getting the better of me, my head hurts, I'm tired and my throat is killing me, even a bit of a cough! BLAH!!! I DO NOT have time to be sick, do you hear me sickness fairy..NO TIME!!! and to top it off Jordan is sick too! No fever, but she did throw up 3 times last night..yuck! she looked and felt ok this morning, but I wouldn't be surprised to get a phone call from the school, thank goodness it's a minimum day today and John is going to pick them up. She won't go to soccer tonight though, it's just practice and I can't have her out there in the cold and wet just to practice if she's not feeling well. poor thing!

The job hunt for John is still going on...I'm trying SOOOOOOOO hard to not flip out, some days are better than others though. This economy needs to change..quick like!

Have a great day! :)

All Star weekend

Here are Brooklyn and Shyann before the first game..don't they look cute?
This is from the start of the day, it was a beautiful day to play some soccer! The girls did the best they could, but I don't know what the heck their coach (and a friend of ours) was thinking! Grrr....hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for the team! Brooklyn was so upset with todays outcome she said she didn't even want to play tomorrow...poor thing! But, we had a talk about being on a team and how just because you don't get your way that it doesn't mean you can throw a fit (there is a girl on her team that does just that and it's very VERY irritiating!) A day full of good lessons, hard ones, but good life lessons!

And the hits keep coming!

*sigh* well, John was laid off from work...can you say FREAKING OUT?! We found out 12/30 and I've been a wreck since then! We have already applied for unemployment, but haven't gotten the paperwork in the mail yet. He has been applying for jobs already, but there's really not much out there! We will just hae tpo buckle down and make this work...I mean what else can we do?! :(

Amid all of our chaos Brooklyn has an All Stars Tournament this weekend, so that will be exciting, she has turned into a pretty good little soccer player! Jordan helped out with the team, so she is excited to see the outcome this weekend as well.

Sydney is still Sydney! She was so mad the other day! Her science teacher lost one of her assignments that she KNEW she did, so Syd came home, but couldn't find it, so what does my brainiac do? She did the assignment all over! LOL! That's my Sydney! :)

I will have to finish later...gotta go make that money...or the little money I can anyway! ;)
