OH, I have been tagged on this sooo many times, that I am finally going to play. Kate has tagged me this time.
Here are the rules:
1. List 7 random things about yourself that people may not know.
2. Link the person who sent this to you, and leave a comment on their blog so that their readers can visit yours.
3. Post the rules on your blog.
4. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, linking their blog. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Random Thing #1
I LOVE to read. Anything!! Fiction, non-fiction, magazines, the back of the cereal box. I often reread books I've read dozens of times!
Random Thing #2
I HATE doing laundry and dishes. They seem to be such futile chores. If I finish the laundry there is still a dirty sock or a dozen lurking around somewhere. And if I run the dishwasher, there will be a sink full of dirty dishes before it is done running.
Random Thing #3
When I was a little girl, I always wanted long hair, but Mom always kept it short. I guess that is why all 4 of my girls have long hair and why I make them hair bows!
Random Thing #4
I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Before having kids I was an 8th grade English teacher. I don't want to teach, I don't think I would be a good teacher and a good mother.
Random Thing #5
I am completely and totally addicted to diet Pepsi.
Random Thing #6
I have a tendency to take on other people's stress. Either the stress they feel or the stress I think they should be feeling. Not too healthy.
Random Thing #7
If life would allow it, I would take a nap every day!!
Okay, I am tagging Dawn, Melissa, Kathy, Tracy, Erin, and Sharon. I can't tag Cindy, she tagged me on something similar to this a while ago!

After 3 weeks of dealing with sick kids, I guess it was inevitable that Kevin and I would end up sick. Grace started getting sick Monday night around 10:00. Picture Kevin and I trying to clean it up in the dark while three other girls slept. We had the hall light on; we even used a flashlight. Oh, that worked well (imagine sarcasm.) I eventually gave up and just turned the light on. No one stirred. So I cleaned up the best I could.
This was the best round of Barffest yet. I started getting sick around midnight or so. It was miserable. It is so hard dealing with 5 kids when they are sick. It is even harder having 5 small kids who feel fine when you are sick. Both Kevin and I were miserable. I felt so badly because I just couldn't function. Besides feeling sick, I had a migraine. Not a good combination. So Kevin was pretty much on his own with the crew. Grace spent most of the day in bed. Olivia was a huge help. She made it possible for Kevin to survive the day. (Because it was a snow day, all 5 were home.)
The kids all seem 100%. Kevin and I are not yet. I still have a sour stomach and lots of body aches. I know Kevin is really tired, and he's feeling behind because he started a class this week.
Hopefully this is the end of it. I question if my sanity could handle anymore of Barffest!!!!!!

I am home from church today. Second week in a row. Sick kids! Are you kidding me? This time it is a stomach virus. Both ends, if you get my meaning! ICK!!! Josiah, Charis and Ella are the victims this time. Ella and Ris are fine this morning. It's Josiah today. And just let me say that he is such a stereotypical male. You know what I mean. Plays it up big time. Everything said in a sing-songy whiney voice.
This afternoon I....GET TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!!!!!!! Okay, I admit it, I am taking Olivia to a birthday party, but I'll be out of the house with only one kiddo!! It's like summer vacation!!

Many of you know I have recently been selling some bows on Etsy It is such a wonderful place to get hand made items. Jewelry, accessories, clothing, knit and crochet items, paintings, cards and many other things.
I'd like to mention a specific store today it is called Suds'n'Sass. Beth makes great body and bath products and designed the banner for my store. She didn't know me and just did this for me. It is so nice to know that there are still good people out there!
I think we are finally getting healthy! No fevers, no barfing. All good stuff! Now if it would stop raining! Wait! there is some sun sneaking through.
We got a visit with Paw Paw yesterday. He is up from Florida, doing something I don't understand and is flying back tomorrow.
It's Ash Wednesday. Kevin is at service at Sharonville. I am home with the kids. I am not a huge fan of Ash Wednesday services. Actually, I hate them. I always leave feeling so depressed...oh, you sinner!!! But in Christ we are no longer sinners. We are holy!! See below!
2To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:
1 Corinthians 1:2
But that is a whole other entry.....look for it in the days to come! And to the ladies in my Tuesday night study, stop laughing at me!!!!

Unreal! Feb.4 and it is warm enough to go without a coat! And it's been thundering and lightening for several hours!
What's happening at the Jobe abode? Well, Grace is home again, but she doesn't have strep. I'm planning on her being at school tomorrow. Elliana has an ear infection...yippee for Meijer and their free amoxicillin!! Olivia is at school, although she didn't want to go. I think she thinks she is missing out on something. Risi is vegged out in front of Josiah's new Scooby Doo video (thank you Aunt Trish!) And Josiah, for reasons only known to him is stuffing toys down his "footies" (ie. footie pajamas.) and somehow he is losing toys in this process. And wondering why he can't get his feet in....
Let's just say life is as interesting as always!

Not a migraine, just a headache. My teeth hurt. Must be sinuses.
Had all 5 home from school today. Olivia will go back tomorrow. Grace and Elliana are at the doctor. When Gracie is quiet, you know she isn't feeling well. She hasn't even been bossing everyone around!

Last night Olivia was throwing up around 3 AM. They have all be really lethargic all day. Add on my migraine and, well, poor Kevin.
Today is Josiah's 4th birthday. It's been really low key. But he had presents and we are having cookies and ice cream later. He's happy about that.
Hopefully we be doing better tomorrow......
