I have a killer migraine... The pressure is not really the thing that is bothering me it's the sharp intense pains I keep getting. If you could feel a blood clot moving through your veins that is what the pain feels at point "A" the sharp all the way to point "B". It really hurts. I am toughing it out at work which seems to make it worse because of the lights. I am in sensory overload...

At Work!!

I am at work and bored. So why not blog...well if I get caught I could get wrote up. We have a new sheriff in town, she is cracking down on rule breakers. Plus I am frustrated with work and would need to vent off the steam if I kept typing so I will leave it simple and say....

I am looking for a new hospital to work at...this one is making me realize I can not reach my full potential.

Okay so maybe it's because I work and feel bad about missing out on things that the kids do but I feel guilty when I get mad at the kids over little things.

Rachele and her homework...she can really push my buttons while doing it. I tell her the directions and she starts out fine but after telling after each thing in that category the directions it really gets annoying.

Kenny always wanting me to hold him. Okay that one really should not bother me but its gets trying when I wake up and for the first three hours all he wants is me. I need some space or at least let me go to the bathroom before you stick to me like glue.

The kids cleaning...or lack of cleaning. Okay so Kenny does not do much cleaning but when you send them to the room to clean and they just play and does that get me.

But I have to say as I have gotten older and heard stories about me... my kids do exactly what I did at there age. So I guess I did it to myself. When my mom got flustered with me and said those famous words "I hope you have kids just like you" I DID!!

NOTE: Most days I am fine with what they do, but I have a headache and Lee has school and I feel stressed out. I only have one day off this week so I feel like I am neglecting the family because I slept most of it away. Maybe I should try to find a day I really like nights, maybe I just need a new location to work.

I have updated!!!

With the cancellation of church...lots of snow and that a word? I decided to update.

Ok so we weren't planning on going to church anyway...we seem to have the bug Anna has. It is not just you Anna. It is going around here too. They even cancelled school on Friday to sanitize the school that's how bad it is here.

We have had a rough week Tuesday my mom went into the hospital with congestive heart failure. She is doing well. Wednesday the brakes went out on my van... I was able to stop safely. Thursday Lee wrecked his truck... he is fine but sore. So we are looking forward to this new week.

Back to the updates I added some pictures to the end of my blog...check them out.

Grateful Sunday!!! (even if it's posted on Tuesday)

I am so glad that I was able to go to church on Sunday. I told Lee even though I would be exhausted we were going. I was tired but it was nice to be in church.

I am glad Rachele had a good time at church...she had a friend from our old ward so she felt at home. (We are so small CTR is 5-7 year olds).

I am glad Kenny let me leave the room when we dropped him off. He did good. It is him and one other little boy.

I am glad Lee enjoyed being back at church.

I am grateful for our branch even if it is small. It is nice to be close. We have a few people that were from the Southfield ward in our new branch. Most of them jumped straight to the Palmer Park branch when we moved to the Warren ward. We really enjoyed it.

Back and safe!!!

We had a wonderful trip dispite the reason for the trip.

I got to met cousins that I have never seen. I got to show Lee how the hills are in PA. I even got to see some more of the town were my parents grew up. We have put PA on the move to list. Not sure if it will ever happen but it is on the list.

We had a nice day for the funeral. The weather was almost perfect...a little cold but no snow or rain. My aunt looked good. I was really shocked at the fact that she looked so good. I've been to a few funerals were the people look fake but she looked like she was sleeping. I look forward to doing her temple work for her.

I am so glad my dad did so well. He did cry at the services and at the grave site and I'm sure a little bit between the two... but he got to see his brothers and we got pictures of them all. I got to see my Uncle Harry who I never recall seeing.

The kids did very well. Rachele got a little emotional but it was very sweet. Kenny wanted to help with all the babies. We have three new babies in the family...and the family is going to try to plan a family reunion in the sunmmer so maybe the Story clan can make it back out there. I'll try to post some pictures this weekend.

An update on mom...she stayed home with Kyle my nephew and my brother in law Rob. She stayed in bed the whole time we were gone. I see another hospital trip in the near future but I don't know when. She has so much fluid built up on/in her she looks like she has goned back all the weight she lost from getting sick. I hope I am wrong.

Happy New Year!!!

Okay so thus far my new year has been okay. I have decided to make a few be reveled later.

My night (meaning my day) did not start out so good. Lee woke me up at about 12pm to tell me my Aunt Deb died that morning (meaning Dec 31). I was named after her in a round about way. Her name is Shirley but my Grandpa aka PopPop called her his Debutante because she was the only girl out of six kids. Any way my work does not give time off for extended family so I am trying to get people to switch shifts with me so we can go to the funeral in PA. I did get one person and the other is going to double check her schedule to see if she can work the other day.

I hope everyone is doing good and has a wonderful year.
