Multitudes and Miscellany

It's nearing the end of Monday, Multitude Monday. And I'm just now able to sit at this computer. I came down with the stomach flu last night, and Trev woke up with it. So we were both feeling awful today.
But I tried, even in the midst of my discomfort and pain to seek the JOY.

I was so thankful that I had a toilet to use, and that that toilet wasn't also my shower water.

I was thankful for my amazing family who came over and helped with the boys so we could rest. 

I'm thankful for blue Gatorade staying down.

And boy am I thankful that the stomach bug doesn't' last long.

Jack had it last week, 24hrs...two days later Christian had it. So...Camden seems to be the only escapee so far and I've bleach everything in site!!




I haven't run in 3 weeks. I got that nasty cold, then my eyes had an allergic reaction and got infected, and then last week I got in one short run but my energy was gone. And now this....I feel I'm being sabotaged!!!

Got to get back into it, hopefully it won't be too tough. 

I was reminded that the way I felt today, is how I was for over 12 weeks with the twins. Yikes. Not fun memories....but boy there are so worth it. In two days you will see a post about them turning 11 months. I may or may not be freaking out...................

  1. Oh - I totally feel for you - we got hit by the same stomach flu bug the week before Christmas! It started with one of my boys then spread to my hubby & I and luckily my other little guy escaped it free & clear! It was easy to be thankful that is was so quick moving though.

    Wishing everyone is feeling better soon!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
