We are finally not sick any more** knock on wood**

So Sean is finally feeling better and becoming more like himself. The swine flu really was rough but we are all okay now.

So there is not to much new to report other than I passed my CNA State Board test (I wasn't worried about it)! I got a job!

So I think I am going to get a North Face Fleece for Christmas from Patrick. But I don't know which one to get. Which is the best one for living in Chicago. I would love for it to be my jacket for the winter. I really like the ones with hoods to yet I can wear a hat too. Please let me know if you have one which one you have and if you love it or hate it.

I am almost done shopping! Yeah:) How about everyone else?

Also anyone have any ideas for great grandparent gifts ideas? We have done the mugs, pictures, etc I want to do something different this year.


I hope all is well with everyone else! Oh and the comments on when are you going to have another baby are starting again......

Yay! Everyone is healthy again. I was hoping to see an update from you soon.

Congrats on passing the CNA exam and getting a job!

I can't help you with the coat as I live in central Florida and the heaviest jacket we wear is a fleece hoodie or a lined wind breaker.

No idea what I would give the greats.

Yayyy I'm sooo glad Sean is feeling better and congratulations on the new job and passing the CNA exam!! I don't have a northhface jacket (as of yet..mm xmas hint for my hubby there haha) but if I did have one I'd go with the "Hero Triclimate® Jacket's" because it's "waterproof," breathable and has a removable inner lining. That way you can wear it when it's not sooo cold so as a fall jacket and possibly spring jacket as well.

I'm glad to hear everyone is on the mend, and congratulations on the exam/new job!
The new picture of Sean is adorable - then again, he's always such a cutie.
So, it sounds like you're thinking of adding a new little one to your family? Congrats and I hope all goes well!

A man named Finite awoke and found himself in a sinkhole full of quick sand. He was sinking very slowly and knew that he would meet certain death.

A man came along who had holes in his hands. The man threw Finite a rope and told him to grab it and he would pull him to safety.

Finite looked at the holes in the man's hands and said, “Your not real.” “It is not scientifically possible for a man to live who has holes in his hands.

The man with the holes in his hands looked at the guy a little puzzled and said, “You are in a sinkhole and about to die. Your response to my help is to say I’m not real?”

Finite said, “Well, I like how warm the sand is and I really don’t want to get out. Second, I know I am having an illusion because it is not possible for a man to have holes in his hands and still help me out.” Therefore, morally I like my plight and scientifically, you don’t exist being a mere projection of my mind.

The man with the holes in his hands said, “Listen, I was sent here by my father to help people out so please let me help you! I will take you to my father’s mansion where you can enjoy life for eternity. Obviously, death was not able to hold me in the grave because the holes in my hands are proof that I overcame death. I now have the power to save you so grab the rope!”

Finite put his fingers in the ears and said, “Now I know I am hearing things because there is no such thing as eternal life…Everyone dies so I am going to take my turn and just enjoy this warm sand until the end.”

The man with the holes in his hand said, “If you won’t grab the rope, then I won’t be able to help you…please, please take the rope and I can pull you out. Have faith my friend.”

A few moments later Finite sunk into the quick sand and out of sight. Finite was surprised that he did not die as expected. He just sat there surrounded by sand, unable to move, unable to breathe, unable to talk with his fingers in his ears. Finite tried to comfort himself by thinking, “I would rather stay here for eternity than believe that the man with the holes in His hand could help me. Faith in that mirage is irrational!!

So Finite sat in the quicksand for eternity. Day in and day out for eternity Finite was always thinking about the man with the holes in his hands. He would comfort himself thinking, “It was better to not have faith than to believe something that didn’t make sense.”

The man with the holes in His hands continued to call him for the rest of eternity; however, Finite could not hear his voice because he had plugged his ears.

The Lesson

If you are not with Christ, you will be thinking about Christ for eternity anyway... so have faith.
