next time get the extended warrenty!

We have had quite a few crazy days here, highlighted by Jena spending a night in the hospital. The cold we have all been sharing turned into a pneumonia and gave Jena the chance to show us that she has asthma. I took her into the ER on sunday when she had a 105 fever and was breathing like she had been working out! After several respiratory treatments and steriods she was looking better but the wanted us to stay and contine treatments every two hours. Jena did fine with the hospital experience and really liked the fact that we got to sleep in the bed together. By monday morning she had enough and was pointing to the window crying 'jena home, jena home!' the let us go monday afternoon and she is feeling better today. Much less coughing but seriuosly miserable!
Stef was a trooper, hanging out in the ER with us for hours until she decided she would let margurite take her home. i handed her twebty buck and told her to go pick something out at target.
during all of this i am still trying to get everythign done with the house. The inspection was OK and it looks like we should be able to work a deal on the things they need to fix. My house has started showing and we still have the painters here fixing things up.
Thankfully we all got a good night sleep last night, which has done me a world of good!
so- what's up with you :) ?

quick update

I wanted to give everyone an update as it has been a few days since my last post. After 3+ weeks of wiping runny noses x 2 i finally caught the bad cold that has been hanging out at our house this winter. The girls have been very sweet- Jena loves to bring me tissues and Stefanie suggested i really needed some chicken soup. A great jewish mother in the making!
I am in the process of buying a new house. It looks like we will agree on a price soon. My house offically went on the market on friday and I spent this morning cleaning like a mad woman. I have no idea how I am going to keep it in 'show' shape with the girls running around making messes as fast as I am cleaning!
Jena is now sleeping on her own in her own bed in the room with Stefanie. The first week after she moved she would cry if i left the room before she was asleep. The first night i was at work she climbed into bed an waved goodbye to Margurite and happily went to sleep!! the next night I put her to bed, she pointed to Stef's bed (where i had been laying) and I told her 'no- that is Stef's bed- mommy sleeps in her own room' and walked out, she cried for 2 minutes, i came back and repeated the process, the second time i came back she realized she wasn't going to win this one and rolled over and went to bed. Total crying time 4 minutes! Now she goes to bed and I walk out without a problem.
I visted the day school Stefanie will be attending next year- can't believe my baby is going to kindergarden next year!
will try to get some new pictures posted this week--

a Play Date- The Aftermath

two four year olds and one two year old can demolish a playroom in no time at all! Stef had a friend over to play and Jena made sure to keep up with the big girls. Jena's vocabulary is rapidly expanding-Jena's- Mine- My turn! Funny how the new words all have to do with Jena staking her claim!
BIG NEWS in our house- I'm afraid to even type this for fear of 'jinking' it but--- Stefanie and Jena are now sleeping in their own beds in their own room! The nest has been dismanteled. Jena likes me to lie in Stef's bed until she falls asleep but we can work on that next week. I'd have a picture but I afraid it might wake them up.
