Why hello there faithful readers of Nolie’s Place. Miss me? Did you even notice I was gone for what seemed like forever? I promise you this blog is not dead, I just have horrible luck.
It all started in February when Big Brother brought him a nasty cold from school. I managed to write all about it when I wrote Dear Parents: Please Keep Your Kids Home and followed up with my post about Little Brother’s first ER visit. Not only were my kids sick but so was I and it all went downhill from there.
I took a trip to the walk-in clinic and was prescribed some meds and a steroid inhaler. Three days after that we were back in the hospital with the baby for his breathing again. This time was a longer visit as he received multiple mask treatments. They also prescribed him steroids to hopefully keep us from having to admit him to the hospital. Steroids worked wonders but then we had a very bitchy, hungry and needy baby for a week.
During that week I was in bed the entire time. I could not get out of bed and when I tried to eat it would be a couple bites and I would fall back asleep. Poor Tobei who had to care for all of us while holding a baby 24/7 who refused to be put down. I finally went to my family doctor on day 6 of being in bed and found out I had pneumonia. I was given 10 days of amoxicillin and we all crossed our fingers that it worked. On day 3 of my meds I was feeling great and managed to get out of bed and join my family once again.
March break was now upon us and we headed out of town for 3 days to visit friends and family. It was a whirlwind trip and we were home before we knew it. Life should now get back to normal right? WRONG!!!
My laptop is broken. One minute it works and the next half the keys are not working. We think it is a loose cable but of course we have no idea how to access the cable and Gateway won’t tell us. Gateway told us to factory reset the computer to make sure it wasn’t a software issue before sending it to them to fix. So we did just that after backing up all my programs, games, pictures and files for the blog design I am putting together for a friend. Guess what. Still having keyboard issues. So now tomorrow we have to call Gateway and get them to send us a box so we can ship the laptop to them to get fixed. Oh and did I mention we just got Tobei’s laptop back after sending it away due to the motherboard dying. Oh and did I also mention we only bought these stupid laptops in December? Yup, I am not a happy camper with these laptops right now.
So there you have it. What has been going on with us the last month and why I have been MIA. I do have a TON of blog work to do and many personal posts to get up. I also hope to start back up with my Facebook Funnies posts that I bring to you every Sunday and get back to sharing photos of our lives with Wordless Wednesday.
Spring is now here and ladybugs have taken over my house. They say ladybugs are good luck so lets hope they bring me some and we get back to a normal life over here.
