How's your Tuesday going? Anything good to share? A problem or frustration that needs a little venting? Have at it!

My Tuesday is so-so, but I'm excited that Ben is really interested again in having a regular cup to drink and it's without much mess! He accidentally had Tim's cup for supper one night, so I tried it the next morning and he liked it. Recently he'd gone through a phase of asking for juice and refusing it when he saw the regular cup, so this is progress. I'd love to switch him soon, though sippies are handy for drinking in the car without spills. I'll have to hunt down fun water bottles at some point!

I'm frustrated that my headache is still around. Had it part of Saturday and all of Sunday, then it went away yesterday until bedtime. When Ben woke briefly around 5:30, it was back and after a bit more sleep, it just increased from there. Oy. I probably need to buy groceries but won't feel like it. Maybe we can scrape by with a quick purchase at our local store and then do the rest tomorrow...

The upside of feeling yucky is that reading has been a possibility. ;) I read the BOTM in two days and had some reading time early this morning. I'm thinking my brain can take input but doesn't want to give output in the form of creative writing, but I'll just go with it!

I guess I am going to post my tribulation. I am having a really hard time this morning. I am thinking about the upcoming holidays and going through a divorce at the same time. I am having a bit of a breakdown right now and could really use your prayers.

Huge bummer. Do you have a mutual friend who could be the messenger or drop by to visit and check on Lelu? It's hard to imagine not having Tas around all the time.

Lots to hugs and prayers, hon! You sure you don't want to move to Canada and hang out with me? ;) ;)

Becca, so glad both boys are using a cup now!

Jen, that is so hard, I am so sorry. I think Becca has a great idea, have someone check on Lulu. There are so many emotions going on, it will take time to work through them. Just remember God loves you no matter what, and spend more time with Him.

Triumph- my Awana year is going tremendously. Last year I had a really hard time, so the Children's Ministry ladies have stepped in to help me, and now things are much easier. Plus, we have less kids, and more leaders so that is a big bonus.

I get to skip out on the teaching as far as academic subjects go and I'm learning a few things from watching the preschool teachers in action. :) I really want to get Ben into the program next fall, so I'll be asking when we end in May for my name to be on a list for registration time. One day per week, we'd hop in the car after walking Tim to school and then Ben would get his own school while I continue to benefit from parent education. :)
