So how are all of you!
We have 3 eye exams this week, oral surgery, my 3 hour glucose test, an orthopedic appointment and an internist appointment. We got the bill from the hospital for my son's arm. Yipes. Welcome, welcome, 2009!
I see this as a good opportunity to put many things right. Reduce the items in my kitchen and adjoining laundry room. Simplify. Beautify.
To make sure everyone is as healthy as we can manage and that they can see well.
To find out if I need to follow a different diet, to keep the baby healthy. This is all good information to have.
Choir begins again this week, and I already hear the girls singing together. The little ones have done a smidge of school work this week. We had delish homemade turkey soup this week.
As far as all the medical check ups and what not, I am finding true the saying, "You can pay me now, or you can pay me later". Eventually, you pay.
And again, my son leaves this Saturday morning. I see that he is happy to go back, looking forward to it a little, even. It makes my heart feel much better to see he is happy there. I'll miss him, but I know he is in good hands. And no more sports for him this year, so hopefully no more broken bones. (From my lips (fingers?) to God's ear).
As far as life goes, I feel like the ground in early spring rain. I am not really able to do much with all the events going on but absorb them and be ready for more. I can't let things "puddle up" or I'll get a flood. Just soak it all in and move on, preparing for the flowers to come.
Have a blessed day, and I hope your new year is proceeding well!
