I'm so glad today is Friday! It seems like I've been on the go every night after work since Beth moved back home. This weekend I'm going to try to get the house more organized.

I can't wait for the weekend of February 6th! I'm going to a scrapbooking weekend with Wendy at Sauders. It'll be so nice to be able to devote time just to scrapping!

Ethan is doing very well since he came home from the hospital. I hope we won't have to go through that again. It was very scary to see him looking so bad.

A Lot Has Happened

Since my last post, a lot has happened around here.

Pat decided he didn't want to be married anymore and filed for divorce. Beth, while being upset at first, is actually relieved. She wasn't happy, especially since Pat was constantly trying to tell her what she could do, who she could hang out with and nagging her to go to his family's holiday gatherings while he was deployed. He also showed signs of violence when he was home the end of December, which she nor Ethan need. I also just found out that while Beth was trying to plan her wedding/renewal of vows for July, Pat's mom kept taking over things, so Beth wasn't even having fun with that. I told Beth that in the future when she decides to get married, she will get the wedding she wants.

Then, on January 7th, Ethan was admitted to the hospital for dehydration. He was very bad off. We took him to Toledo Hospital ER on January 6th because he had not been able to keep anything down since the 4th, and they sent us home. He got worse, so we took him to St. Anne's ER on January 7th. The nurse couldn't believe that Toledo Hospital sent us home because of how bad Ethan was. Luckily we got him to St. Anne's on the 7th, and then they transferred him to St. V's. He stayed in the hospital until the 11th. You wouldn't even know he was so sick. He's such a good little boy, and it's great to see him back to normal like nothing happened. Here are some pictures of him in the hospital. The last one was taken the day we got to bring him home.

Well, I'd better get off her so we can get some more stuff done around the house. It's been a total disaster since we had to move Beth's stuff in in one day and then spent time at the hospital with Ethan.
