Tending to the sick....

The past couple of days has been tiring for me.
My family is sick from the flu except for me..
not sure if it is the swine flu but it's taking
it's toll on my dh to the point he's coughing out
blood. lots of it and I've asked him that we take
him in. But he can't seem to stay home from work
and still left anyway.

I'm pretty sure that my little ones picked up
their coughing from him since he first got sick
last Thursday. My five year old son has had a
fever and coughing since Saturday. He woke up
yesterday morning feeling a bit better, the
fever is gone but he's still coughing.

My 4 yr. old dd has gotten better also. I've
been looking up the symptons of this new
Swine Flu and it looks like some deadly stuff
going around. Hope that they find a vaccine
for it.

Getting Settled In.........

Finally getting settled into our new place.
yes, we downsized to a 2 bedroom 2 bath
apartment. small storage, no garage. It's
hard trying to find a place for everything.
We couldn't bring half of our furniture
from the house with us, so I called my
parents and asked if they could pick up
2 bedrooms worth of furniture, most of my
equipment from work, our bbq grill and
all our patio furniture.

I'm pretty excited that we'll be saving
$1100.00 a month in rent and,
that helps me on my path to saving lots
of $$$$.

I haven't posted regularly since the
beginning of this move. But am definitely
getting back in to the swing of things.
I was feeling really fatigued after the
move and only running on 5 hours of sleep
a day. Thanks to General Conference this
week I'll be relaxing more and getting
to the Gym more often!!

Did I tell you it's open 24 hours?
I love that they have alot of variety in there.
I mean equipment:) I went last night and
ran half an hour on the treadmill.
The last time I was on a treadmill was
8 years I was proud to at least
get in my 30 minutes!
