Well. My laptop is in the shop for the third time in four months, the tire shop did a lousy job of realigning my van’s tires, and fibromyalgia is messing with me big time today….BUT the laptop is still under warranty, I can sort-of write this post on my iPad, now that I figured out how to transfer back and forth. And my awesome Hubby fixed my van. So I decided I needed to take a moment to share some good.
First- So excited to let everyone know I officially have 2 missionaries now! My TeaRose has all the paperwork done, and the place of Service found; she has even spent a few days with her knew mission Supervisor and blown her away (in a good way). People are still so surprised at how smart kids can be and still be obviously on the Autism spectrum. But we blow away myths pretty regularly around here. And for right now, I am so excited for her new adventure. Also, my other missionary has a new assigned area, he started last week. He will be serving in our area’s ROC center, that does the preparation and follow up computer work for the Indexing part of the Church’s Family History. Fun stuff for this geeky mom.
Things are starting to look done in the older boys’ room remodels too. I even tiled a shower wall and it looks totally awesome, and not at all like its only the second time I have ever done tile (don’t tell him). DK is really picking up speed in his homeschool efforts, and Kydee was amazingly brave all thru yesterday’s adventure of getting braces. (Tho not up to photos yet– can’t say I blame her, I’ve been just as panicked as she was.) And to top it off, all my kids have been exceptionally calm and low maintenance this week, in fact they have really been loving on me. It’s possibly because it is fall break here, but more likely just growing up a bit, whatever the blessing’s source- I have been really grateful to begin having bits of time totally to myself (and the ability to think straight at the same time!) to start cleaning up the piles from the chaos of the remodel, and the overload, and everything… it doesn’t look like much yet, but it’s huge to me! I even get to make a Wonder Woman costume this year (heehee)
So anyway, hope you all think of something good that happened this week too! Sending you Cyber Hugs!
