Now I'm really behind!

Happy belated Easter, blogger friends :) I hope everyone had a great weekend. 

I cannot believe how long it's been since I've been here. So much life has happened, blogging and updating wasn't really at the front, or even close to the sort-of front, lol. 

I'll have to go back and read what I even posted last time, I honestly can't even remember. I think my last post highlighted how well we'd been getting along and how we established new rules and went to the beginning.... I think. Lol. 

None of that has really changed in the last two weeks or however long it's been. We're getting along SO well. I don't think we've argued over anything at all. We haven't had much spanking though, either. And, we haven't really talked about it. 

The weekend before last was great. We had a great conversation about us, followed by a really good maintenance session. If I remember correctly, he only used the new hairbrush I bought. However, since then the only action the hairbrush has seen is the actual use for a hairbrush, lol. 

I remember going to bed with a warm behind after some more us time ;) it was a perfect Saturday. Now it's a little fuzzy and I'm not sure if that was actually a Saturday. I think it was, because I was going to post about a "spankful Saturday"... 

Then, enter life. Apparently life thought we weren't busy enough. I
Enter different activities for our girls, tons of stuff fireman had to do, laundry that piled up (and I mean PILED up since I was out of detergent and couldn't get time to stop and get some for like 2 days..), and a few different rounds of sickness for the kids. 

#3 has a surgery scheduled to have his tonsils removed. He's so little, but his tonsils are bad! Initially, they wanted to wait until he was older, but now it's becoming a big problem. I'm extremely worried, but I know it's what he needs. Some days he has a hard time eating and he gets choked quite easily. I'll keep you posted, please keep him in your thoughts and prayers in the next few weeks. His surgery is later this month. (Speaking of, can you believe it's April?!)

With all the sickness came a fever for our #2. Fevers do weird things to her and she's been known to have a seizure. Typically, she has the ones you think of when you hear the word 'seizure'. This time it was the blank, stare-off, vacant, roll-her-eyes-back, lets freak mom out completely seizure. I could not get her to snap out of it. Luckily we were near my mom, so I scooped her up and ran over to my mom and she came back to us. Terrifying. 

Turns out she had around a 100 degree fever. Not very high, but high enough, I guess. Her doctor ordered an EEG, some took her to get that done and she did so well. I couldn't have wanted her to do any better than she did. 

A few days later (which was only a couple days ago), we heard back that she had zero abnormalities show up. Yay!! We are extremely thankful that there's nothing wrong with her brain. Her doctor wants us to let him know it she has any more episodes, but hopefully she won't. We have to keep a close very close eye on her fevers, but other than that she is great. 

With all of that occurring, I am so very behind on reading. I'm sorry, I'm a terrible blogger friend, lol :) I will try to get all caught up this week. I hope I haven't missed anything big! 

I need to initiate a convo with fireman to check base and see where we are.  He has had an HoH tone or look a few times over these past few days, but no maintenance, no punishment. Not much of anything really. Just cruising along, but in a good way. :) 

Have a great Monday! 


  1. You are not a terrible blogger elle ! If you actually look around many people have been MIA for a while. I suspect once summer arrives in this part of the world people will be blogging even less. Aside from life getting in the way, you didn't 'need' us. No need to blog. If that was the case, that is a good thing right?

    Sorry to hear about your little ones. I know the thought of your baby 'going under' is scary. I've recently just experienced that fear myself, and he's 13 !

    My girl friend's daughter, actually 2 girl friends have gone through what you did with your daughter too. One had it happen off and on for about 6 months whenever her daughter had a fever. The other just once. I pray that you never experience that fear again, but if you do that it doesn't last long.


    1. Thanks Willie! I was just catching up on your posts, too! Lol :)

  2. Hi Elle, and don't worry about blogging. Family should always come first. It must have been scary for you with your little girl having a seizure like that, but it's very common with small children if it's any consolation. My friend's little girl used to bang her head against the wall until she went out like a light - we even used to time her 'not breathing'. She grew up fine and is now married and expecting her first baby. Interestingly, I remember her having to have her tonsils and adenoids out when she was about five. She got through that fine too. Am sending prayers and blessings your way though - we can always use them.

    So you're the second person with a broken hairbrush and had to buy a new one. I think ours must be made of crptonite! It's one of those that is going to last for ever! Perhaps it doesn't get as much use. Don't think I want to try anything more ouchy at the moment though.

    Hope you had a very nice Easter.

    Many hugs


  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your kids. I hope that nothing bad won't happend again. I'll pray for.

  4. Glad all is going well. I know what you mean about the laundry. When my kids were young I swore that there was yeast in that room because the pile never got any smaller.

  5. I am sorry your young one has to have his tonsils removed. I don't know how old he is, but I was only three when mine were out. It was needed to be done as well. If it helps, it went really well, and because I was so young, it was easier for me to heal. I don't know if that helps, but my parents were really worried, and I came through really great. I will be praying for you guys and him as well though. It does sound like with everything, and your daughter's fevers that you are overwhelmed, but it's so great that all is going well with fireman and that he is there to help! :) {{{HUGS}}}

  6. Hi Elle, you are certainly not a bad blogger friend. Family must come first and life does sometimes get in the way. I'm glad to hear things are well between you and Fireman. I'm sorry to hear about the illness with the kiddos, the seizure must have been scary. Sending best wishes and prayers to your little one for the surgery and a speedy recovery.


  7. Wow Elle, I'm so sorry to hear about the health struggles for you little ones. I'm also really glad to hear how much less stressed you seem to be because the two of you are working with each other and not against each other.

    Will be praying for your little guy.

    There was a time in my life when I was small when my folks had to take my temp every night to make sure I was okay. Growing bodies can have some difficult reactions to even slight problems. I hope she continues to do well.
