Sick Kids and Precious Friends

Sometimes I complain that I do not have friends.  I need to stop and remind myself that I do when I have these moments.For two weeks we had sick kids. It went through our church and when it hits large families it seems to just hang around. One night I was overly tired, I had a huge to do list when a friend texted that she was stopping by. She brought me a big amazing piece of cheesecake. Cheesecake is my favorite splurge.  I know it sounds silly but just that one small gesture helped me get through the next sleepless night.

A Broken Heart

My husband recently found out that he has heart blockages and cannot work out until we figure out what the next step is. So Jacob is helping him work his muscles by jumping on him.  

  He had a angiogram this morning and found out that he has 2 arteries that have 100% blockages, one with 50%, one with 70% and one with 90% blockage. 

  We will see the cardiologist on Wednesday to decide the next step. Please pray with us as we make some difficult descisions.

Help my Pants are Unzipped

Do you have pants that will not stay zipped. My favorite pants will not stay zipped. So I tried the trick I saw on Facebook. Take a keychain and attach to your zipper. Then wrap the key chain around the button and then cover. I know that does not really make sense but try it. What tricks do you use on a regular basis?

Life as a Three Year Old

Life makes you tired when you are there. Sometimes you climb out of bed with your blankets but cannot go any more. This morning he woke up and several things irritated. First, I did not make his cereal swim. I did not even know that was a thing. Appearanlty your cereal does not swim if you do not have enough milk in the bowl.  Second he was worried that the dogs needed to go outside to go potty. They will make the snow dirty. He reminded me that they have a hiney winey and could use a toilet. Life got better when he realized they were playing outside because that meant the dogs ran out of poo. Life was quickly destroyed when he saw them eating the snow.  I honestly can do nothing but smile at him and love his thought process.

A New Show

Another wonderful show is down in the books. This show was in a small town I had never been to. It was only about 40 minutes from my house but a whole new area. Next weekend we are at the mall. Actually I am setting up at the mall and my amazing wonderful husband is setting up to me at two other locations.  I know our bank account says he will need to go back to work but I am enjoying him being home with us.

Rescue Dogs 

I love our dogs.  They came to us from a amazing rescue as adults.  They make me feel safe. Hope is not feeling well today.  There is no faking a illness in our house. If you are sick then a dog is probably on your lap.    I know everyone wants energetic puppies. I urge you to consider a rescue dog. These dogs have changed our lives for the better. And on a side note they encourage us to sweep and vacuum daily.

The End of our Volleyball Year

Our volleyball season is over. As much I do not like the late night pick ups I am going to miss hearing stories of games. We really do have a wonderful volley ball team. This girls have really bonded. They have a amazing coach who has dedicated so much of his time and heart to our girls.  Tonight was the sports banquet. This is a time to talk about the year and say thank you to our amazing coaches. The dress code was church clothes. That did not go over well with my beautiful daughter so she bought a dress.  I love this child and how she is herself.  I pray this never changes.

Hurry Up and Wait

I know he wants to get a job, I know our bank account says he needs to go back to work but man I will miss him making breakfast on a regular basis.   This retirement life is kind of nice. I wake up with my husband and go to bed with my husband.  I do ask you to pray with us as lots of descisions are being made over the next few months. Where do we accept a job at, do we move, does he go back to school. Do we start home improvements or just clean out for a move? Hmm, I do not function well in the hurry up wait life.

Dating Like Teenagers

My husband and I do not get away often so when we do we have fun. We turn into kids again. Sometimes my husband decides I need to learn a new skill. Tonight he taught me how to make a paper airplane.  Of course I had to go to the entrance to see it if it works.  I think there is something freeing about being in a different town where no one knows you. Sometimes you just have to have fun together. I remember one time about ten years ago we had a sword fight in the middle of a amusement park. If I remember correctly (i rarely do) I won that fight.    What are your favorite dates with your spouse and how often do you get away together?
