Oh the Excitement

So this weekend Wyatt made his second visit to the ER. At 300 am he woke up with a cough and a stuffy nose after every cough he would cry. I knew something was wrong with him then. After taking his temperature and it only being low grade 99.6 the hubby and I decided to embark on the wonderful adventure of taking Wyatt to the ER. Thank God we missed the 4 hour wait to see the doc by about a hour. Nonetheless the visit was still two hours. After finally being seen by someone we found out that Wyatt has the croup. We left the ER about 545. Thank God he went back to sleep on the ride home and slept until about 1000. I guess since it turned out to be a drizzly day none of our plans were really ruined. Randy's parents ended up coming to town and we had lunch we them. They just bought a house closer to town and wanted to show the clan some photos. How exciting now both sets of grandparent will be only about 30 mins away.

Hope everyone has a great week. Go Jayhawks!!!!

Saint John Paul????

So tonight I was flipping through the channels trying to find something to watch and I landed on a show on channel 8. This show was all about PJP II and I love PJP II. The love he had for the catholic faith and the love he had for the human race despite its many follies leaves me in awe and wonder. I want to strive to be more like this man. He is a great man and the one instance that strikes me the most about him is when he went to Jerusalem a few years before his death. While there he went to the rabbis and spoke to them and apologized for the wrongs that had been done against the Jewish People. He was trying to build a bridge for peace. I feel that if more people had forgiveness in their heart there would be more peace in the world. I think that today's world does not want to bear the crosses they are given in this life whether it is many small crosses or a large daily cross but look at PJP II he bore his cross with his disease of parkinson's and never once did he show signs of being unfaithful to our loving and merciful GOD. We could all learn something from PJP II. So in today's world when we struggle to see a light of beauty I think we should all look to the beautiful light that PJP II showed to us all even to the minute of his death. I am excited that he is being fast tracked into the world of sainthood. He is an amazing man who did so much good for the world. Through this last week of lent we should all try to show the world the beauty of our light and try to bring peace to everyone we see in our day.

The Crawl and other things

So the husband is out of town this week, in Lake Buena Vista Florida no less. I am a little sad the tickets were about $200.00 round trip plus hotel and food and the husband didn't want Wyatt and I to go with. Oh well maybe Wyatt and I will take a business trip sometime and leave Randy at home. So the babe is mobile we put the gate up on Sunday. Life is different when the wee one can get around know the word no is said here a lot. Time to really start baby proofing the house. Oh well I love that Wyatt is getting more independent. Well gotta go Wyatt is up and we have errands to run.
