Neve calls my crutches my crotches so we are having a pretty good time w/that.
Nothing too exciting has gone on around here the last few months but the last few days have been very very different. I tore my ACL playing basketball on March 1st and just had it repaired on Wednesday. The first day was not terrible as far as pain but is super awkward trying to get around and having to have everyone do everything for you. After the femural block wore off it was all downhill from there. So painful and I was piggy backing all sorts of drugs to stay on top of the pain which sometimes still didn't cut it. The itching is one of the worst parts because you are so tired from the drugs but those same drugs make you itch like crazy. I sat up two nights in a drunken stupor just scratching. Ella just keeps telling people I am doing fine because she says every time she starts to talk to me I just fall asleep. ha ha. The last two days I have this wheez when I breathe that I am slightly concerned about but I suppose he can xray my lungs when he xrays my knee on Tuesday. I am tired of sitting around but too tired to do anything else so I'm just going with it. I try to read and fall asleep, try to watch a show and fall alseep, try to fall asleep and itch.
I know I will be glad I did this in a few more weeks (:
Dave has been a saint and a great nurse. He is much better than I would be if the tables were turned. He is most likely more exhausted than me and probably can't wait to return to work.
Tomorrow is the big reveal of my maimed leg. I guess my leg modeling days are over. Ha ha

I'm not a super fan of Valentines Day. I don't hate it, it's just not in my top 100 days. I went to work at 4 a.m. because I work at Kneaders and I guess Valentines day means make of pig of your loved one with baked goods. It was fine but a 9 hr day. Dave brought the kids in to eat but I only could say hi for a minute since the more I take a break the longer I have to stay there.
To my lovely surprise when I got home my whole house was clean. Dave put the kids to work in payment for the food he just bought them. Maybe, I do like Valentines after all.............
It's been a long week and many hours were spent on our YW fundraiser. It's a good experience but only because I love the ladies I get to work with. I like cooking but 900 oreo truffles is outside the realm of fun.
Sam wanted to do his school fundraiser and I HATE fundraisers so I told him I would help him 0%. He did it anyway and really what was I thinking? That kid needs no help from parents to charm others into shelling out dollar bills. The first two hours he sold all 60 candy bars. I just got told that he should be in the gifted dual immersion program. Is is bad that I don't think I will put him in it? I just want him to be able to be little and enjoy school being easy for a while before it's time to grow up and things get harder.
Life is fairly boring around here minus the laughs we get out of these kids. I can go for boring for a while. I just was looking at some pics of my kids when they were little so I'm doing a throwback with photos.
Logan: says he's black all the time and wishes he was black because he's determined he would then be qualified to be in the NBA. He sings non stop and is certain he sings well so he's no where near shy about it. He is still heavy in basketball and starting to lose interest in soccer. Sadly I think he wants to trade up to football. That stresses me out and I don't really know the rules to football ugh...time to learn. He is doing well in school but I get the sneaking suspicion he drives the teachers crazy. You already have to be crazy to teach Jr. High so I guess it doesn't matter. This pic is as black as this white boy is gonna get.
Neve drew this in preschool. It's a keeper!

Anyway I forgot a few minor things in my last post. I know that is hard to believe since it was eleven pages long but I did.
Logan made the Jr. High basketball team after crying himself to sleep the night before because he "knew" he was going to get cut. He is a bit of a worrier. Wonder where he gets that? He played really well and it was fun to watch him play in the JV games. He did play in one or two Varsity games but of course it was when I was not there because he never played in them before so why go early right? So the season was short but a really good experience for him. He wears his warm up shirt as often as I can keep that thing clean. He also got back on his super league Pump-n-run but many of the kids are different and this year his team "sucks", his words not mine. He plays on a Jr. Jazz team just for fun w/some of his friends and also plays church ball as well as playing indoor soccer and futsal right now. I told Nellie last night that I need a second wife for the shuttling. He loves it all and it's his doing and not ours. He does better when he stays busy so that is what he is doing. He is also the Deacons president so has to decide sometimes between sports and YM stuff. He chooses YM stuff often actually and that makes me proud of him. Gets Dave's jockeys in a jumble but he will get over it.
Sam got Baptized on Saturday and we got to share the meeting w/the Langfords which was fun and fitting since the Pettersson family is interconnected in there so much, we knew everyone on the program. Clyde and Norma were able to face time for the whole thing so that was pretty cool. Our Bishop is hip like that. It wasn't a recording, therefore allowed. Anyway, we were grateful they could still be part of it all the way in Canada. Poor Uncle Mugga may need a bicep replacement after holding the phone up that whole time. Sam was also confirmed that same day and then he bore his testimony the next day in sacrament and it was about the cutest thing I have ever seen, loud breathing in the microphone and all.

I actually had a few epiphany's today. Neve has been exceptionally mean and difficult at home. She screamed in her room for over and hour last night over any and everything she could think of. She went to school with very puffy eyes today and asked me if I still love her even when she's mean, ouch. She has just been so hard. Logan has been super annoying. Like not ever stopping or knowing when it's not funny anymore annoying and he seems to save it for me. Carri said last night that he seems to be lacking attention from me or something and I have been thinking about that all night and today. Ella has been an angel as usual and tries to be very helpful. Sam has been crying a lot and is super sensitive. This is not normal for this little man. My realization today is that all this behavior coincides with me starting to work and that makes me upset and sad. Mothers belong home and it doesn't go unnoticed when they aren't there. I feel it necessary to be at work right now otherwise I wouldn't hesitate to walk away from it. I enjoy the job but I love my family more. They asked me to train for the head pastry position and without hesitation I said no. A job isn't my life work, raising good people is. None of the pastry people have children, they can't understand. I only work two days a week starting last week for the month of January and it has been a much needed break for me to get some things around here back in order. Dave has been wonderful to keep things up and being Mr. Mom many days but there are just somethings I need to do or really like to do myself. Meals around here are getting an overhaul that is for sure. I have been major suckage there and that really gets under my skin since I love to cook.

I finally finished some wreaths I have been working on for quite some time and decided to give them to Dave's sisters and Sis in law for gifts rather than hoard them all to myself. It did have a hard time parting with them but one can only have so many coffee filter wreaths before they need a mental eval.
It was actually a very delicious turkey and it really was funny to watch these mens eye go googoo gaga over meat. I will never understand that. I thought the Christmas Story was just all funny but nope, it's totally real.
My Mom has been getting them a book and reading it to them the last few years and this is a fun tradition. The girls especially love it. I think Carri like it too. I wish I had a pic of her craning her neck to see.
The post christmas bomb stuck around for a while since I had to work the day after Christmas plus I was trying to be laid back.
Despite my debbie-downer-ness today I have had a great time the last however many days since I blogged last but blogging is an outlet that I think I have come to need as a release of some sort. Maybe I'm an addict but I think it's a healthy addiction and one of the things I shouldn't neglect. I have a bad memory naturally and it is really fun for me to recap so I can remember it again every time I read it. (: My sweet Ella reads it a lot too. She's into stories and such. It felt quite therapeutic to blog today. Maybe I'll do it again tomorrow.
