Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "WHY" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved and I didn't take the easy routes very often. But, I'm still around to tell stories about it.

We made it through another week. Tyler ended up with Strep and missed 3 days of school. We are keeping our fingers crossed that Kayla, James, or I don't get it. I have Monday and Tuesday off from school for Fall break and I am looking forward to it. I really need the break. Although, I don't know how much of a break it will be. I will be getting ready for an open house that I am hosting, with seven other direct sales consultants, on November 3. The kids are getting excited for Halloween. Brooklyn is going to be a pirate, Sierra a duck, Kayla a witch, and Tyler is not sure. He is at that age where he still wants to participate but is also feeling like he is too old to go. I'm pretty sure that at the last minute he will decide to go. In the pics of the dogs: Jake as always is watching TV (Evan Almighty); Charlie and Beef (one of James' engineer's dog) taking turns dragging each other accross the floor.

Well, we have had a wild week and it is not even over yet. Brooklyn got Strep throat and is doing better. I wrecked my car, long story, no one got hurt and minor damage, just enough to really tick me off for making such a stupid mistake. Sierra got Strep throat, started antibiotics and Tylenol 3, and then woke up this morning with a rash. The doctor yesterday told us that if she develops a rash then we should take her to the ER immediately. So, we took her to the ER and the doctor there told us that it was a rash caused by the Strep. There went every one's Christmas presents. Sorry! Oh, by the way Brooklyn chose her own outfit today and as you can see she got her fine fashion sense from her father.
