I'll be honest with you....

I am still sick ... and it has me down!
Our friends, Britt and Audrey, left Sunday with one of their daughters. The mom and dad are off for two weeks for some intense mission training. Their other three children will stay here with us till they return. I finally let myself rest in bed all day Monday and I thought that I might be doing better, when last night I had one of the worst coughing fits I have ever had. For almost and hour and a half I coughed and threw up. Steve was trying everything to help. Finally it settled down and I slept uneasily some time after 12:00 p.m.
This morning I felt like someone had beat me up!
I got up and we did school and then I lay down again this afternoon.
I really feel that this is just a bad cold and needs time to run its course, however, it has been a fighter for sure!
So, I know my blogging is boring and reflecting my lack of energy and motivation. I feel that I need to give our family and three guest what I can, do school and still be with my new baby!
Hey, guess what, with Christmas and surprise money from friends we were able to buy a new oven, since our is broke...thank you LORD. It should be available in about three weeks!
Still waiting to see what will come about for a van...
The weather was nice today, so the older ones enjoyed some out door play time this afternoon...boy, was the house quiet with the little ones napping and the older ones outside!
I have a craving for chocolate chip cookies...so I'm off to beg Kalyn!, even though it is supper, because when you're sick you can break the rules!


  1. Shonni, so sorry you are sick! No fun when mom is sick. Feel better soon!!

  2. Oh Shonni - I'm so sorry you are still sick!

    I'll pray over you!


  3. So sorry you are still stick Shonni. It seems like a long time since you got sick in Ethiopia with a stomach thing...is this the same *sick*??

    Yeah for the new oven!

    praying for you friend.

  4. Hugs and kisses to you, Shonni :) I hope you get a good night of sleep tonight and start feeling better tomorrow. Rest up so you can enjoy playing with your new oven when it arrives!

  5. Been praying and will continue - hope you are feeling better soon!

  6. Ugh...you poor thing. Get some rest--maybe you should go to the doctor since it has been hanging on so long?? You don't want to have bronchitis or something. Praying you feel better soon.

  7. Praying for you to get well real quick because you are one super busy mama. So happy that you are able to purchase a new stove. Feel better. :)

  8. Get to feeling better Missy! And I say go for it with the chocolate chip cookies - think of how many calories you burned coughing last night - haha! (I can find all sorts of justification for chocolate)!

  9. Oh my dear friend, I am soooo sorry you are feeling so nasty. Time for HEALING!!!! Know that I am praying for you and trusting that God would touch your body and get you back to full speed SOON!

    Sending a huge hug down the hill :)

  10. I hope you got your chocolate chip cookies! You're right when you're sick you can break the rules! =)
    I'm so sorry to hear that you are feeling down and still sick! That's no fun! It's so hard being a mommy while sick. I'll be praying for your strength to return and all this sickness to leave!
