|She's so beautiful pregnant! : )|
I'd bought some cloth diapers to monogram/embroider with the letter C (we know it'll begin with a C!), or the letter S for his last name. BUT. As I was sitting down to work on a design (or several!), my hasp/dongle broke! It is a little USB thingie, and the sofware won't even OPEN without it. I'm so sad. The store I bought it from is out of business, so I'm trying to find another dealer that might be able to send it back for repair/replacement. I am up a creek with an embroidery machine..and no way to use it. Sadness. Praying it's ready by the time she has the baby!!
|working on their computers. Carter loves this old white Mac that we can't even find the charger for!|
|Sweet girl. Pictures are tomorrow, and she'd like her hair straightened, please. After having me hot roll it the last two weekends. ; )|
|Towels are my insurance. So I can walk away once in a while. ; )|
Ok..as the day has worn on, my attitude is less than positive. Do you ever just feel like your day is less than.. oh, I don't know..below average? I'm wearing down and probably need a decent night's sleep. I just don't get those anymore. : (
|He loves the baby.|
His religious education class isn't any picnic either. I know he wants to be confirmed with his classmates, but she's tough. He's supposed to be reading a book of the Bible every night, memorizing answers to questions, and there are assignments for EVERY night of the week (7 days of homework for a one hour a week class!). He's just getting more and more behind. There's no way he can do it all. And forget a social life. I hear about things going on at school, but he doesn't have a spare minute. He did campaign for a friend to be voted into student council (and she did!), but he said he couldn't even consider one more thing. Makes me sad.
|Soo glad we listened to Ethan, and we went to play at a park. May be just what we needed. : )|
And..We got letters from our insurance company, UMR, than they will only pay for FiVE strips a day for checking the kids' blood. Umm, we sometimes use up two just to get one reading. And five? So.. which checks should I eliminate? When do you want to see them go high/low/unchecked? And is hospitalization so much cheaper than preventative care? This makes no sense. It's a battle they hope I won't fight. And tonight, I'm tired.
And I need to get ready to teach on Wednesday. (And remember my kids don't need nightly homework!) Breathe in, breathe out. Pray. Pray some more. God's got this, I'm just sure of it. I know when I'm teaching religious education, I go though the most pain and emotional trauma. Drawing the little children closer to God is dangerous work. And I'm not kidding. Say some extra prayers for our family. It's tough stuff. Prayers for your family too. Hugs.
