sick kids, and coming home

these last 2 weeks have been so long...in more ways then i can count...its insane...between sick kids, my insecurities, sick mom, and the house, im about to lose my mind...

the kids have been passing around some virus that just wont go away...it started about 3 weeks ago with Steven...then michael got the stomach flu...then dominic came home sick from his dads, and he is still fighting it off...Logan has gotten ita little but hasnt missed any school..then Friday i started coughing...ive been sick since then...Michael caught it, and now steven...its been miserable...

Ive been working like a madwoman on the house..well till i got sick anyway, now it looks as though i havent done anything in here for months...i wanted it to be perfect for Nick, and its just not gonna be...i have resolved myself to that much...

Nick...He comes home tomorrow...i get to pick him up at the airport on Friday night...im so relieved to have him coming home...i need to be able to put my arms around him...to make the world disappear even if only for a minute...i cant wait to see him walk off that plane, and come towards me...its a joy that i cant explain at all...no matter how hard i try...The boys get to go with me this time...they have never been able to go with me to pick him up, only to drop him off...They are so excited about it...and Nick is too...He will get to see all of us, right away...

So this homecoming is the next to last one we have to do...he will be here for a month...So far we dont have any plans but to just BE...im ok with that...after the month is up, he goes back to hawaii for a month, then is home for good...i cant tell you how excited i am about that...wow! its finally time to be a family...its what we have been working towards...

we already have a date for Saturday!!! woohoo...lol...an actual date...haha, not sure i remember what a date is...so i might not be able to update for a while, depending on how busy we are...but i will be back with pictures, and stories of our lives soon enough...
