A Case Of The Sickies

The kids have been sick for about a week now first it started with lack of sleep Ryan has been moody for a while now but then I noticed he grew a tooth I had never seen before a molar which was the cause for all his sleepless night and moodiness but then Cadon started to complain his stomach hurt and Ryan stopped eating for days all of a sudden it hit us and the kids got the flu they have been miserable and the two days ago I caught it too and if they are feeling half of the pain I am in I don't know how they do it I went to the doctor who said there is something going around and since I am allergic to meds he said not to take any cold meds because my body just can't handle it...BOO that is why I have not been blogging there is so much to write about but I still don't feel like being on to long B had a 9 day vacation and while very boring at times all we did was walk around stores and rent tons and tons of movies and work out hahaha not much fun...for anyone who doesn't know my birthday is coming up on the third and I got married on my birthday which I don't recommend but hey hubby gets to kill two birds with one stone haha so it will be our FIVE YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY and my birthday I can't believe it has been so long every year we go to a fondue place and have dinner but this year my husband has told me to "Go out go shopping get what ever I need spoil myself and don't worry about the rest!" and so he has taken me out twice to go shopping and I found the perfect dress it is one shoulder a plum color and has a black stripe around the midsection I love it and Brandon even found some fancy new slacks and is getting so excited about our big day he is not a romantic person by nature nor is he a fan of PDA or holding hands but one thing I know that is when it comes to me he would do anything to make me happy and I would do the same for him whatever he has planned I know it will be wonderful I will be posting pictures of our fancy night out once it comes!!!! thats it for now

A Beautiful Day



While it may not be warm and it is really gloomy today has been a great day so far we woke up together and just laid in bed until we were good and ready to go downstairs then I made some pancakes and we had breakfast together after that we headed to the Hair Cut place and the boys got their hair cut Cadon was such a big boy he asked for a hair cut then sat there very still like the lady said he even got a lolipop for being so good after that we headed home and Cadon got a treat for being such a good boy today and was able to play COD with daddy and I got to give my teething baby snuggles and put him down for a nap....the boys played for a few hours and then we made home made pizza YUMMY and after I rolled out the dough daddy and Cadon took over and finished I think Cadon is loving all the father son time he is getting and thats our day so far.

Yesterday was so beautiful I woke up and after getting a full 8 hours of sleep I was so ready to get out of the house I walked outside and it was bright and maybe one of the nicest weather yet this winter so I got the boys ready and we headed out first we walked around Target and the shopping center in Nampa then we hit up the mall and I was in such a good mood we decided to go to Walmart and get some cake and ice cream!! but I got home and it was only 4pm and I thought I can't waist this day so we put the food away and ran outside and walked around the neighborhood a few times we played Kickity KICK BALL!! and raced the boys and I had so much fun we went in for dinner and watched a movie together and that was about it...over all GREAT DAY! Today was not so bright and a little windy but I thought this is still nice weather so I am going to take the kids to the park and we had SO MUCH FUN we came home drove around the neighborhood well the boys did in their Escalade and then we visited our neighbor to see how she is doing and played with chalk I am feeling much better now that I have slept two nights in a row and I hope the weather stays this nice here are some pictures from our fun day today

I made it!!

I made it I have to mention I can't sleep and am in so much pain so I am blogging but I made it to 8:30am and I have not crashed yet I am trying to call my doctor and make an appointment for today as soon as possible so I am not driving exhausted with being awake 48 hours people always tell me its alright to ask for help but how do you ask someone...I have not slept in two days and I am afraid I will pass out while my kids are up or crash while driving? it scares me now and I dont want to ever seem like a bad mom but I dont know why this happened to me why do I have to live with this pain it is beyond anything I have ever known I hide it best I can but not even my husband understands when I tell him I am in pain every day what I feel I am trapped and no one can help me I am terrified of medication am very sensitive and most make me sick or I am allergic to there is nothing ever going to help and it scares me I want to play with my kids be happy have energy but I have no energy I cry myself to sleep because of the pain I wish this would all go away doctors are amazed that I have had so many problems I have non ossifying fibroma in my knees yes BOTH and it is better now but when it comes back I cant even bend my legs to save my life and I have Fibro. and tons of scar tissue that I have been told will give me more problems when I get older I want to be healthy and take a pill when I have a headache I am just venting now but I cant describe how scary it is thinking of the pain I am in now and what I will be in a couple of years

Day Two

I wanted to write a post to say thank you to everyone who has been helping me out and supporting me through this rough time I am going through. After Christmas I started to feel different unlike anything I have ever felt before I had no sleep for weeks because of my Fibro pain and then I started to get really sad and for no reason it scared me but then my stress about it consumed me and then I started to have panic attacks and it got to the point that I just had to ask my doctor and I finally went in and he is going to try and help me out this was very embarrassing for me to even tell anyone but since there are so many people who are encouraging me and who are worried I want to thank you for all of the advice and it makes me feel like I really am lucky to have family and friends who care about me that much I have taken the first step and we will see what happens

Kind Of a Weird Story

Today was going great I woke up with the kids and the hubby was just coming home from the gym he made us some yummy waffles and we all sat together and had a big family breakfast I love when my hubby cooks and after that I decided I would make him a big lunch and I made my second lasagna EVER and some garlic bread which came out amazing we ate then watched a cake baking show I decided to check my email and when I got up from the computer I COULD NOT SEE through my right eye and I ran to the bathroom checked it out and started to freak out I told Brandon my EYE WAS BLEEDING and he replied as if I was overreacting or just flat out telling a lie and said "YOUR EYE IS NOT BLEEDING CARISSA" came over and by that time I had started to cry he got some toilet paper and ran over to me and said "Woah that was so cool your crying blood!" and then continued to wipe the blood from my eye but didn't even ask if I was ok that little stinker but I am OK if anyone is wondering and I guess when I was playing with Ryan on the couch he scratched my face and cut my eye...I thought this was a weird but cool story to tell hope you enjoyed reading it!

A New Project!

Yesterday we headed to hang out with Titi Lisa and while I was there she showed me the basics of how to crochet then I headed home and practiced I couldn't figure out how to make it wide or what a double crochet was but I called her up and she talked me through it again and it helped so much and today I did my first crochet headband and this only took about 10 min to make I LOVE IT
