Pretty pretty pleeese Por favor...

Lindsay loves to hound me with favors and loves Dora. So her favorite phrase is "Pretty, pretty please por favor!" She nudges me to make cookies, which I did yesterday. She is currently asking for cupcakes... And wouldn't you know it a Family Circle magazine came in the mail today with lovely spring cupcakes right on the cover! She won't give up until those cupcakes are made.

We're getting over colds here as well. Not too much exciting. I'm anxious for spring cleaning. I want it done and over with. I've sort of started. Ah well, I suppose I shouldn't procrastinate.

I would have been posting more, but I always feel like I'm just complaining. We always have something going on or happening. Forever the tragedy. I am grateful for my family and my friends. I wouldn't be as sane as I am without them. So Thank you.

To sleep or not to sleep

I write this having been up since 4 AM, it is now 5:30 AM and i'm feeling fine. I had a horrible nightmare while Jared was gone with Jack to the sleep study. Totally unrelated to why i'm up.
I'm even more curious as to what the sleep doctor will tell us and what the study will show... Because Jared said that Jack fell asleep quickly and stayed asleep (not usual for him) and from what Jared saw from the monitors before he himself passed out, Jack's O2 levels were actually higher than they've been, I think he said 89, which is nearly normal.
I also wonder if all the behavioral problems we've roller-coastered on with Jack is related to when he had a cold. It all began back when he cracked his head open and had to go to the ER for some stitches. He got a cold and his O2 levels had dropped to 85. It makes me wish I were more trained, so I could self administer some oxygen if needed and not have to constantly wonder if I should travel into the hospital to get there opinion and hope we don't pick up anything while we're there.
Well, id take a cat nap now if I could, but the girls have shifted in my bed having climbed in really early. And now there's no room. Ah well an early start to the day shouldn't hurt. Plus it is Jared's day off (yay!)

I've been busy with etsy. It's slow going, within one month of having began the business, I've sold three items. I'm working on more projects. Taking care of the kids. I don't know how well I juggle. But feel free to look up my shop to give your options
Tonight Jared and Jack will be doing the dreaded sleep study to see if Jacks oxygen levels are dropping when he sleeps. It sure does run in the family. Jared and Duncan have the C-PAP machine to sleep with at night. And now Jared, Duncan, Jack, and Lindsay will have all gone to perform this sleep study. Duncan and Lindsay had there tonsils and adenoids removed to help. I'm wondering if that's what they'll try with Jack. The specialist did say that even if Jack wasn't a heart patient he'd be a candidate for this test because he has an unusually large uvula.
Well, I need to get more accomplished and stop procrastinating... I'm wishing you all good health!
