I want to thank Elaine for this award!!!  This was very "sweet" of you! 

Here are my seven things about myself:

1. I never wanted to be a mom, until I was in my 2nd month of pregnancy and saw my precious little boy through the sonogram!!  From that moment on, it's been an amazing journey. ( I just noticed this was on Elaines list as well.)

2. I thank my oldest son, AJ for "getting" me into Crocheting.  I was pregnant with him, and was bed ridden a lot of the time, I took up crochet to learn how to make him baby blankets.  :D

3. I am annoyingly positive even when I am being negative.  I always see both sides.  When I am angry, depressed, upset, I ALWAYS think it will get better no matter how bad the situation is. 

4. I desperately would love to be able to time much so that I actually think it CAN exist!  LOL  History is so incredibly fascinating to me, and if we were able to time travel, I would visit every time in history.

5. I often say Crochet keeps me sane, and in all honesty, it truly does!!  It actually can calm me down when I am upset, which is a good thing, when I was younger getting mad would mean I would hit myself, or destroy something that belonged to me, never anything that belonged to someone else though.  So now I can crochet and it helps.

6. I really do wish my parents could live forever.......I know as children we think our parents will be around forever, and then adulthood hits and we realize that it won't happen, but sometimes I get so emotional about it, I really really wish they could.

7. Despite the ups and downs in my life, I am really really happy!  I am happy with my days, my family, and I have a good life!  It took me some time to realize that, but I am glad I was able to get to that point.  I would not change my life for anything.

It's been awhile since I just did a regular updated post!!  I think this is my first for 2012!  I hope you all had a great start to the New year, and it continues to get even better.  I am sure we will have our ups and downs, but lets hope for my ups than downs.

We had a great Christmas!!!  The boys enjoyed it a lot

Our New year so far has been up and down.  Aiden and  I got sick last week. Mainly coughing, but for Aiden it got back, high fever, and he was home for a couple of days, and fever free I sent him to school, which might have been my mistake, he came home Thursday from school, and went downhill.  He was looked pale, his fever spiked up again, he was zombie like, just laying there crying....and coughing..that night he did not sleep at all....called his dr that night who said bring him in in the morning.  So Friday morning I called and told reception he needed to be in there NOW!  Not later in the day.  So we get there, and his oxygen was very low, his heart was beating fast.....machines were going crazy, breathing treatment and then x-rays revealed Pneumonia.  I felt guilty for sending him back to school, his cough was still there, but I thought no fever, so it was ok.  Anyway we got him on medicine and within a couple of days he perked up and felt better.....he went back to school today and his class and teacher were happy to have him back.  He came home today with lots of papers and crafts he did....I love looking at all he does in class.

I still feel horrible myself, it's mainly a cold and cough, but my head feels as if it will explode from coughing and blowing my nose.  On the brighter side, I can actually smell and taste a little bit.

Did anyone make any "loose weight" resolutions?  I "tweaked" mine a bit, I want to loose weight, but I want to be healthy about it.....I am trying to stay on track with keeping my food diary online.

I was sent this link, and I hope that those of you who are thinking about going on a diet, to please read it.

Thanks to Jennifer Lynch for sharing the link with me
