New Years Resolutions

Well I resolved to not be so uptight with my kids when they are continually fighting. But I can't seem to let it go. I do encourage them to solve the issues themselves, but I am always the referee. I guess that goes without saying. It's a Moms job. I don't like to though.

I had also hope that we would stay healthy with the New Year. That got thrown into the toilet too. Derek came down with influenza for 2 to 3 days before he actually could return to the feedlot again (with medical help of course, this is how you know he was REALLY sick). Noah's nose keeps running and Ms. Alexa has been running a fever. I spent 3 nights on the couch so that I could avoid the illness and ended up with a bit of a cold. I spent more time with cleaning products then I planned too. But we are on the mend trying to regain the energy and strength before the sickness storm hit our home. I am praying for a better week and more especially a healthy one.

Word to the wise, get flu shot! Derek wishes he would have.
