Here we go again...

Preschool started back up on Monday and Carter hasn't been able to go.  He has a cold and as usual, it goes to his lungs and he coughs a lot.  I just don't get how his body gets sick so fast.  Sierra had a little sniffle and sneezed a few times, and it jumped to him and just attacks.  It seems every year about Halloween time, he is sick until spring.  I REALLY hope this hasn't started early.  I need so badly for him to go to school.  I need those breaks and the time to nap when Sierra does.  This thyroid thing is kicking my butt, I am always so tired and never feel like I get enough sleep.  On the weekend Chris lets me sleep in once and he has to wake me up around 10 because I could just keep sleeping.  Cross your fingers that Carter gets better fast and that I get more energy.

We decided to get a van to make things easier with Carter getting bigger and heavier.  We are trying to sell a car still, but we did buy a van just over the weekend.  It's a 2002 Toyota Sienna with lower miles and good condition.  We got a good price and are now working on getting it new tires and registered and all that stuff.  It's silver and can fit 4-5 kids.  It also has a TV and VHS with DVD hook ups.  Great for kids and long drives. 
The front row is just 2 bucket seats and the back is a row that could fit 3 without car seats.  I like to drive it it's fun to have something 'new'.  Now cross your fingers we can sell the other car!


  1. That van looks great. You'll get years of great use out of it. I have a 2002 Corolla with over 10k miles more than you told me the other night and all I've bought is tires, brakes, oil and filters for it in the 12 years I've had it.

    As for school time and illness, Whitney suffers from the same. The bit of hope I can offer is that she gets more resilient every year. She gets fewer bugs and they keep her down for less time. I think it's due to the immune system beefing up a bit over the years after fighting off so many bugs. I hope you see the same with Carter!

  2. I didn't know your Thyroid was a problem! I hope you start feeling better soon!

  3. Thanks for visiting me over at "Our New Life". Your kiddos are adorable, I'm sure you have your hands full! Hang in there!
