Another Week

Well, the pins are still in. The doctor was all set to take the pins out but when he found out how bad things got last week following therapy he said no way. The pins must stay for another week. He is afraid the bone will give way again if the pins are taken out. It is actually better for them to be in right now as the bone is stronger with them in. Hey, it's healing so we can't complain!

  1. I'm glad it's healing. Someday this will all seem like a bad dream. My son went to basic training yesterday.

  2. Aww so sorry they couldn't be removed right now. Better to be safe than sorry though. Hope he's still in good spirits!

  4. Patty,
    Yes, I agree completely! Although we liked him, I think the first doctor he had was way too quick to take him out of the cast. I wonder if the surgery would have been necessary had he left him in one. So I am glad this doctor is not risking it now with the pins. Although he did give him full permission to play a gig Sunday night which has this Mama nervous LOL!

And so it begins...

Once again I find myself arranging ballerina buns and finding missing tap shoes. A new year of dance has begun and my girls could hardly contain their excitement.




The fun of pulling socks over shin guards is also here. The only difference is that it is now my sweet boy that is playing soccer. They can start at the age of 3 here and he was excited to play last year. But when he arrived for his first practice he balked and retreated to the safety of Mama's arms. He was barely 3 at the time and was even still in a pull-up so we really weren't surprised. This year, however, he was ready! Funny how they can seem so big at home and look so tiny on the field! He did quite well at his first practice though. I had no doubt he would. From the time he took his first steps he would grab a ball and dribble all over the yard. (Dribbling in soccer is when you see them lightly kick the ball to move it around the field. Very important skill as they must be capable of maintaining control over t…

But I don't want to!

I'm having an attitude problem. I'm looking around at what needs to be done. I have the desire for the work to be done but I have no desire to actually do the work! Therein lies the problem.
I think we could truthfully apply that to a lot of areas in our life.

We want our church to have "programs" but we don't want to actually work in them.

We want to be healthy but we don't want to work or sacrifice to get that way.

Same thing with weight...(don't even want to go there LOL!)

We want our children to behave, make good choices, etc but we are tired.

We want our homes to look nice but don't want to do housework, yardwork, work!

Ugh, so what to do, what to do? I'm telling myself the answer right now as I type.

Get over yourself! Sometimes you have to lay aside the selfish, less important desires and just do the harder thing in order to get results and have the real desires of your heart.

Sigh..so I guess that's where I am headed now. I'm …

Peaceful Surroundings

Sweet Saturdays! It's been a great week of homeschooling and work. We are screening in a porch and applying fresh paint to the outside of the house. Hoping today holds a little TLC for the inside of the house! I find it has gotten away from us!

Do you have those times too? The times you find yourself so busy you can't keep up with the normal things in life? Don't beat yourself up. It's not a problem when it's a season. It only becomes a problem when it's a habit! Unfortunately we all know that anything you practice long enough does become the regular way of doing life. So if you find yourself buried in the everyday life responsibilities, step back and take a deep breath.

Think about what will bring you peace in your surroundings.

Clean laundry, smelling fresh and sweet?
I will admit I have a penchant for clean towels that are perfectly folded and stacked.

Clean dishes, filling your cupboards?
Uncluttered counters?
I find I don't like to cook in a dirty kit…
