The baby has already been going to tears every time she walks past her sisters room cause she misses her.



Seeing them off at the airport, I'm sure that you consoled yourself with the thought that you'd be seeing them soon. And now this.

Doesn't life just stink sometimes!

But think about this: plans get changed. They got changed so that these two peas don't return to the pod in May as you hoped. But I'm hoping for you that they get changed again so that it won't be THAT long before you see them again - their place or yours...

Teach your children well,
Their [parent]'s hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picked, the one you'll know by.

Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

Today was a pretty good day.
I took the little pea and we went to costco-did the big shopping.

We picked my mom, grandma (whose visiting this week) and little sister with us. WHEW!

I got a brainstorm, one way tickets are generally cheaper than round trip.

So I asked the oldest pea to look up prices for one way tickets back to Ok in June. They're running $300. Not terribly bad.

I asked if she'd come home in May if I could send her back by Fathers Day.

Then, we all can say a PLANNED goodbye, and she can help me sort through her stuff and get it donated or whatever before the "final move".

She was giddy with the idea.

I told her I'd give her a for sure answer if I could manage that by Sunday....

It came to my mind this morning after the littlest pea went to tears YET AGAIN over missing her sissy.
It won't mean she doesn't miss her sissy-but it will mean she knows sissy is going for a long time and won't be expecting her back soon. Also-she already knows that "after a new winter and snow comes and goes away-we are moving far away where the snow is less so much".
I love listening to her talk!

She talked her little head off today as we walked up the road to get the van (had to change the tires).


Maca is over, he's making steaks for he, me and GG. He called and offered and I thought that was cool. He's setting up the grill right now.

Littlest Pea had to go to the Dr today.

Her left lymph node in her neck is swollen OUT OF THIS WORLD. I kisssed her neck, she went to tears and that's how I found it.

Dr. isn't sure what it is. Possibility that it's mono. But we don't know yet.

Otherwise, a pretty good day. I got some math done, graded papers (keeping caught up with that each day), got my English book in the mail for my class that starts the 16th.

Maca came by after work and we hung out after he took the little one to the Dr. GG made dinner for everyone and Maca liked it. We all hung out fairly comfortably for a few hours. Maca and I looked at all the grandbaby pics on facebook before he headed home to finish painting the little pea's garden bench.

It's possible that it's a blockage. My niece had to have surgery before she was one because of blockage. They said it was something that happens with development, sometimes the lymph nodes don't fully open. Surgery was quick and she recovered in no time and no problems since. I only bring it up cuz my sis in law found it the same way you did.

I'll keep that possibility in mind (blockage).
Right now thtey have her taking steroids and antibiotics. She goes back Friday.

I was in today.
Lots of herbal tea, laying low, curled up in blankets.
They put me on antibiotics as well.

Maca came by-took me to the Dr.s today. Then cut all of the tile for the entry (we're planning to lay it on Saturday).
