The Yucks

We've (or rather, I've) spent the last week tending to ill children. And it's not coming at an ideal time either, darnit! John was out of town last week, and is again this week. We spent some time at the opening weekend of the Stock Show, where I'm pretty sure we picked up some nasty bug. Why, oh why do they have a large gathering like that smack dab in the middle of the season of YUCK? Well, I learned my lesson!

Stone, Sage and I (Saylor opted to hang out with Grandma) did get to go watch some bull riders on that first Saturday of the show, which I want to keep saying was 'last Saturday', but in reality, it was the Saturday before last. And it's significant, because the day after the bull riding, the boys and I traveled to Hot Springs (about an hour away) to attend a chicken pox party. Yay! Good times, right? Well, yes. Except for Stone feeling crappy for two days last week, and Saylor picking up where he left off, and he's still feeling like sh**. So much for my plan to have healthy, vibrant boys before catching the pox. No signs yet, but we're nearing the estimated incubation stage of 10-21 days, we're at day 9 today. I ordered a slew of homeopathics to help if we do indeed become a pox household in the near future.

And PLEEEEAAAASE let it happen when John's back home with his extra set of hands! The boys have kept me hopping, trying to be near this one, play with that one, and fix the other one something he's craving. Whew... no wonder we're all sleeping in every day! And (knock on wood!!!) I'm healthy. And I'm staying that way, so there!

I've gotten myself on both districts substitute teacher lists around here. It's a financial necessity at this point. Wonder how that's gonna look? The far-out radical free thinker spending my days in ---the system---. It's all good! I'll most likely be doing my bulk of subbing at the school that I taught at; so I'm just there to socialize! ;) oops...

John's flying to Portland, Oregon on the 12th to interview for a Supervisor position with a milling contractor there. Just not sure where that will all lead, so I won't even try to speculate.

Much Love and Blessed Be...

that's okay, the rest of us will speculate *for you* :D The Golden Vortex is hard at work - not to mention a couple of young men who have an incredible knack for LoA Manifestations ;)
I'll be here, ready to help you unpack... already know how to set up your Breve connection :D

I'm going to be selfish and say I want you to stay here. I want to keep our little group of free-sprited, life-learners close by...it makes this area more than tolerable. But I'm also good with wherever YOUR life leads YOU (and family). I myself have been drawn to Oregon for ages-it would be a great place for the farm our family wants-a growing season longer than 3 months!

Is John gonna call so we can see him while he's in Ptown? Does he get to stay overnight?
