I really am having a hard time keeping this blog up to date! and visiting my blogging friends most of whom I have loved getting to know and connect with....ahhhh I don't want to stop blogging because it really has been great therapy for me as well! It is has been such a year that I know in a few more years looking back I will have forgotten all of it! Isn't that how life is?!
My baby is 5 and has started saying the most inappropriate things! yup thought I escaped the terrible 2's with her and now am shocked by what comes out of her mouth and a little attitude that is forming. She has said some of the following much to my horror....how do you get a 5 year old to realize what is not PC??!!
said to Morgan's 12 year old friend "why are you so fat?"
said to my mom " why are you so old, are you going to die soon?"
said to a cousin who is not pregnant" is there a baby in your tummy?"
said to a babysitter who is a single mom "are you married? you are supposed to be married before you have a baby!"
Then when she was mad at one of her sisters she called her a dumb ass..... uh oh... be careful little mouth what you say! she also has been crossing her arms and being sent to her room for her little outbursts! not good!
At the dentist yesterday my 7 year old told the dentist that her and Faith were supposed to be boys but we got stuck with them instead..... um hello.....wow...I thought how interesting to say to the dentist you just met for the first time.... makes me wonder what all has been said to teachers!!
It is amazing what their perspectives are. Lately they have been asking me when I am going to stop working because daddy is all better now. It is hard to explain that it is just something I have to keep doing. They don't understand. They see dad stronger and that is such a miracle and we are soooo grateful for the strength that he has now. There may be an opportunity for me to leave the hotel sometime soon but I can't go in to any details. I may soon be able to have freedom again to be flexible with my schedule and that feels so good. But we will see, many things have to happen and I have to trust that no matter what happens and how long I stay where I am that in the end my steps have been ordered by the Lord.
I did hire a housekeeper, who I play soccer with! she is coming every other week to clean the bathrooms and do the dusting. My bathrooms have never looked so clean! not even when we moved in and it motivated me to do some purging....so I cleaned out the girls room...jarring my wrist a few times but I think the exercise is needed as it was quite stiff after the cast, and I have 2 huge garbage bags full of clothes that are too small....their rooms are very clean and it just feels great! I hope to do my bedroom next weekend.
We have our second last soccer game tomorrow night and then the last week of Aug we have our tournament. As far as I know our team is 2nd in our division but we won our last 3 games and they have not updated the stats yet so we may be in 1st or closer to it anyways. I love playing and having to watch in the cast was awful! I am going to keep playing in the fall/winter it really does feel good to do something for myself and try to get this weight off!!
ok well that is a little bit of an update for you and a reminder for me in the future that growth is always happening when you trust!!!
have a great week!
