Just FYI, I did have to get out to take Rooster to school but that's all I've done today. Oh, and stop by store to get a thermometer. LuLu is home sick today. She ran to our bed last night about 4 in the morning and she was burning up. I searched all over the house for that dang thermometer and couldn't find it anywhere. It is never where you need it to be. So, now we are home and as much as I hate to see her home sick I love having some time just with her. I love that she still needs me. I love that she is still my shadow. I love it that she still runs down the hall and jumps in our bed at night. Right now she is all snuggled down watching the Disney channel with a empty paper towel roll over her eye. She said she is a sick pirate. Very funny. It makes me want to freeze time. Just for a bit.
So, back to my house and all its problems. :) Let's face it, I am no June Cleaver. I want to be but fear I will never be a good housekeeper. What in the world?? How can my house go from "so clean you could eat off the floor" to "wait, that dropped, don't put it in your mouth?" Seriously, how do people do it? How do others NOT have the dreaded "piles" all over? Where is all their laundry? Where is the sink full of dishes? You mop once a week? WHAT? And your bed is made everyday? Seriously? There are many times I just drop into friends houses and it looks awesome. I would be petrified if someone just dropped in today. Heaven help me!
Well, I guess today you know what I will be doing along with taking care of my sick one. Anyone up for helping a worn out and tired Mom?

A: Easy.....he has 2 dinner plates full of food and eats every bit
I can't seem to fill my teenagers tummy. He is hungry every second of the day. I feel so bad for him and I know this is just the beginning. I think I might need to get another job just to pay the extra grocery bill. Wait, what am I saying? Troy will just have to work overtime. ha!
When we go out to eat he gets a steak, people. Seriously. Between him and Troy they can do some damage at a restaurant. Yesterday, after church we went with friends to a local well known deli and he ordered a steak sandwich, We all got a chuckle out of that. Our days of kids meals for the Rooster are long over. Where did my baby go?
What recipes work well for your family that feeds A LOT? I am already having to double the recipes....HELP!
