I know how it is when someone passes away - life just kinda stops and feels weird for a while. I'm still praying for you all. I'm glad she was peaceful when she passed - maybe she saw God's presence.

DH's grandfather passed away a few days before Christmas. It was really the first relative of his that had passed away (his mom's parents passed away when he was a baby). So it was an awkward couple of weeks for him. Our lives kinda stopped for a couple weeks. Fortunatley I was still on maternity leave. One bad thing that resulted from that was that we took 2 weeks off of practicing the bottle with Leah. So when we started practicing again, she refused it. It took a few weeks of effort to get her to take the bottle again.

Just try not to worry about the housework much and allow yourself to grieve and support DH.

Sounds like you have a lot going on!

I had a calmer couple of days, but I'm sure my head will start spinning again soon. I'm supposed to have singing practice this week for church, but Dale has a football double header that evening, and I can't find a sitter for the kids. Well, my MIL and SIL aren't available, and that's the only people I ever turn to. My mom is working (I think), but she lives kinda far anyway. MIL just put in a bid on a house in another town (20 min away), so I may have to find myself another sitter anyyway. Ugh.

My pugs were my babies before I had real babies too. Its been hard lately with them, mainly Buster the 12 year old, because he is having such a hard time goign potty because of his back problems. He won't go outside when you take him, but he'll go inside soon after. I'm mad at him a lot of the time.

I hope you havea a good day!

All thoughts of house work went out the door today. I don't know if you read my prayer post or not, but I had a very scary morning. I have been on edge all day, and don't feel like doing anything. After my adrenaline slowed down, I have been exhausted ever since. To make a very long story short, the boyfriend of a neighboring teenage girl chased some guy away from my house today. He was apparently outside of my house, looking in my window, and touching himself. I called the police, and they seem to think it is just a misunderstanding because it was an autistic 18 year old. They say he has the mentality of an 11 year old. The officer said he claimed to be looking in my house to see if it was the house he was meant to be at, and that he just had an itch. First of all, he knew what house to be at because he was at it an hour and a half earlier! Not to mention, 11 year olds know better then to stare into people's windows. It couldn't have been innocent looking either for the neighboring teenagers to feel myself and my kids were in danger. I am just so creeped out. I feel terribly violated,and am not taking my kids outside today. It doesn't help that my dh is gone, and is an hour away. He was going to come home, but I told him not to. They are at a golf thing watching Tiger Woods, and they spent a lot of money on the tickets. So I am inside with my kids, and my extras, with locked up doors and windows. I am going to see if my police officer bil can find out any info for me.

I did see your prayer post, and I am still praying for you! I can't even imagine what you are feeling right now. I don't know who that was that replied to your fb post, but I think it wouldn't be so bad to have someone come over to sit with you, just for your peace of mind. You don't know if that kid will ever come back, but I'm sure will feel freaked out for at least a little bit. And thank God that other teenager saw him!

Is there a full moon? I had another wacky day at work yesterday. I got sucked onto another committee that seems like its going to be a big time commitment and a lot of drama. I'm mainly afraid it will require me to go into the office more frequently, which I don't want to do to DH.

My ankle is hurting again. Sheesh.

I'll be praying for your comfort today.

There must have been something yesterday. After my incident, I became so angry with dh when he decided to go out to dinner instead of come home. We will have to talk about it today when he gets up. So sorry you were sucked into another committee. I hope it doesn't cause you to have to be in the office more then you are now. You are already so busy. :smileysad: Ouch about the ankle. Is it feeling any better at all? Have you had it checked out to make sure nothing is broken? Prayers that both our days go better today!

I would have been mad if DH went out instead of coming home after that fiasco yesterday. What was he thinking?

I did email my boss about my concerns about that other committee and he hasn't emailed back yet. If my schedule isn't too crazy today I may try to catch him.

My ankle does better when I have it wrapped in an ace bandage. I had it wrapped most of the day yesterday and it looks pretty good. My sister is a physical therapist, and she didn't think it was broken. I have an appointment with the chiropractor in a couple of weeks (check-up) so if its still swollen he can look at it.

I would appreciate some prayers for my DH. He had a double header football game yesterday and a varsity game today. He is NOT supposed to have games back to back - our chiro told him to space out his games (Tuesday and Fri only). I'm concerned about his hips - he was not feeling well for the second game yesterday, and he won't be able to recover much today since he's home with the kiddos. MIL has a garage sale so she can't come over to relieve DH. Pray that he doesn't hurt himself.

And I just realized tomorrow is Sept 1, so our time as prayer sister is just about up! Its been good GTK again. I'm going to take the next couple of months off of GTK - I'm still overwhelmed with work and mommyhood and just can't keep up anymore.

Thinking back, I honestly don't think he was thinking.  Unfortunately, my dh does tend to have lapses is judgement from time to time.

I think that is a good idea to talk to your boss.  Maybe they will let you out of it, or you won't have to be as responsible for so much.  

Ok, so I am confused.  Sorry if you have said and I just don't remember.  Is dh coaching or playing football?  I will be praying for relief of his pain and no further injury.

I just noticed it is the end of our time as well.  It has been great catching up.  I can understand why you would need to take a break.  Sadly, I think I am going to give up hosting my coupon board because I just don't have time to do everything I want to do.  Especially when things get even busier next week.

Oh gosh Cindy! I just got around to checking this webpage and saw that the prayer partners were extended another month! I am so sorry for not noticing!

So what is new with you?

Don't worry about it at all.  I know you are very busy and had planned on taking a break from prayer partners.  So I really didn't expect you to come post.  Happy surprise for me.  :smileyhappy:

A quick recap:  I am watching JJ's eye closely.  If it starts getting red and swollen again, he will be recommended to an eye dr and possibly need surgery.  I am the new assistant to the teacher at JJ's Wednesday nights Rainbows class.  Next year I will become the teacher if I choose to.  I have a meeting on Friday to discuss JJ's treatment plan for his speech and developmental delays.  It's a crazy week.

How are you doing?

WOW you have a lot going on! I missed some of the posts on fb about JJ's eye. Its better now, right? Why would he need surgery?

What is involved with that teaching? Will it be fun and/or a lot of work!

I also saw that JJ's teacher for his speech/language issues left. Did you get a new one yet? How is that going?

Things are generally crazy for me. Let's see... yesterday I sprained my ankle again for the 3rd time in 2 months. It was actually doing much better - I saw the chiro a couple weeks ago and he wrapped it and gave me some exercises to do - so when I reinjured it, it came as a total surprise. And I wasn't doing anything strenuous - just getting Buster pug to go potty outside.

We're still working on tryign to fire that employee of mine. I think its going to be a nightmare of a process. Now that I've finally initiated the formal process, they are asking for training opportunities, a timeline, etc. I really hope all my previous documentation will suffice because I want to move on with my life!

Today I'm super tired because I was up puking half the night. No idea why. DH never got sick, but he was queasy (though maybe hearing me had something to do with that). Leah and Andrew seemed fine this morning. Yes, I came into work even though I barely slept, because I had lunch with the Dean and you don't pass up those opportunities. She actually knew a lot about me and was even bragging on me! So that was kinda cool.

DH and his hips are so far surviving the football season. He did make a bonus appt with the chiro a couple weeks ago and has another one coming up. Did I mention that our chiro is the team doctor for one of the teams DH will be offiicating in a couple of weeks? So if DH needs work, he can get it!

Sorry that's a lot. This has been a busy week with all that I described above, so sorry I coudln't reply sooner.

The dr thinks he may have a Chalazion in his eye that isn't going away.  If it does not go away on it's own, they want to surgically remove it.  So far it has not come back.  Praying that it stays away.

The teaching in only on Wednesday nights.  The teacher now says she comes in about an hour early before class, and that is all the extra time she has to commit to it.  I could do that.

Oh no to injuring your ankle again and to the process of firing that employee.  I never knew there was a long process involved with that.

Yikes to being sick, but woohoo for the important lunch!  That is great that she was bragging about you!

Glad to hear dh's hips are holding up!  That is neat that he already knows a good chiro to go to.  Dh went to one last year that was just money hungry.  He is going to start a new one soon.  Actually, he is the father of the boys I babysit for.  :smileyhappy:

I have the final results and education plan for JJ.  He was found to have a severe delay in speech, a moderate delay in cognitive and adaptive skills, and a mild social/emotional delay.  We are going to up his preschool from twice a week, to Mon - Fri 9 - 11:30.  Three times a week he will have a special ed teacher come to his class for an hour for one on one time.  He will also be getting speech therapy at home three times a week instead of twice. It is nice to finally have it all figured out, but it also a little sad to know how many delays he has.  I'm praying this plan of attack works.  If not, next school year we are enrolling him into a full time special ed preschool.
