Not so much

Okay, so...Valentines day came & went & nothing, not one freakin thing, went as planned. Both boys were at the hospital. They both have a very "seal bark" cough, and although their lungs & chest are clear they are in mucus overload in their throat. So much so, that Z can barely talk & the doc says that because the cold is in his voice box. This momma don't like that. So, we ended up with a prescription of codeine to give him, & he has never even had Tylenol  in his life, so I'm kinda nervous about the whole codeine thing. That was yesterday morning. Then late last night we went back with Wy. So, needless to say, we will be celebrating our love day when our babies feel like eating again. Man, like all momma's(&dadda's), I hate it when my kids are sick. I just want my healthy babies back. Ugh.

After having a lil pity party for myself last night,  I found myself watching the bachelor. I don't get it...what is with me & this stuuuupid show. I really, really don't like it but I find myself watching it every. freakin. time. It just sucks me in, or something. Especially this season. My goodness, this bachelor is just  the lamest I have ever seen. I can't find him to be real at all. I don't know, it's weird. After watching last night, I told myself that I was done, not going to watch it anymore...then this morning I find myself on spoiler sites to figure out who the hell he picks...seriously, I need to give my head a shake!Lol

It's tasty tuesday over at FTLOB & since sickness is in my house I though I would share a a yummy Chicken Noodle Soup recipe. I have made this exact one before, & it is one of our favorites:) Enjoy & happy Tuesday!!

I am sorry the boys were sick. I just said a prayer that they will feel much better soon!

I know what you mean. Not about the Bachelor. About the Real Housewives. I think they are SO insane and there is just no possible way that real women act like they do, but I can't get enough of them ; )
