Well, I'm down to 3 more working days before my folks arrive (yay!), and I have enough "to-dos" to fill a month. Lord willing, Monday morning I will finally be rid of this ear infection and be back to my normal self. It has really slowed me down this past week. But I'm thankful for the chance to feel what my babies feel. I don't remember having one before but they are officially miserable and I'm so dosing them up with Tylenol next time. I have taken more Advil this week than in all our married life put together. I NEVER take pain meds, but with being neither pregnant or nursing, Ed convinced me there was no virtue in suffering just because. ( Don't worry it actually only ended up being maybe 5 pills total all week, but for me that's a record. =) Just FYI, onion is the best for treating it. I tried everything!!!!
Well, enough about me....
The past month has been a nice break. It's still been busy but between the gorgeous weather, and enjoying my new picnic table, and watching the kids revel in the sunshine, and watching Ed work in his shop it's felt relaxing and non-hurried. I know the next few months are going to more than make up for that but that's ok.
I have so many things I could share that the Lord's been teaching me through this new Bible study. Or maybe just reminding me of...either way, it's been a blessing. And I'm truly trying to apply the "speaking truth to myself". I'm not "there" yet, but I've been noticing when I don't and that helps.
Anyway, it's late and I need to wrap up. I probably would have had more time if I hadn't taken so long admiring all the newborns on the various blogs I follow. Sweet cheeks and soft hair. Love it.
