These reviews seem to give me an excuse for not posting everyday. And it is a guarantee to my readers that it will be my one and only long post of the week.
Obviously if you read yesterday's post you know we celebrated a special birthday in our household this week thus Blake being the featured post picture. (don't ask about the face paint as I'm not really sure what he was hoping for)
Tonsillitis and Sleeping Pills
Blake started a fever accompanied by a fiery red throat over the weekend. The prognosis, Tonsillitis, and home from school two days. He was ecstatic to be back romping around the school halls on Wednesday.
I thought Tori was coming down with it too when she fell asleep on the couch at 11:30 a.m. Monday morning and at 4:15 p.m. she was still sleeping. I later found out that she got into some sleeping pills that were in my nightstand. FORTUNATLY, they are homeopathic so a trip to the hospital for a stomach pump was not necessary. It did give me an idea though; if things get too much with Rich gone I can give the kids some Rescue (the pills) and expect to have a quiet afternoon. I’m only kidding or at least half kidding so don’t call child services on me!
Skyler had a school Gala this week. What type of activity was she engaged in at the Gala?
1) Swimming- Swim Meet
2) Dancing- Dance contest
3) A Festival
I will give you a hint; she had to wear her costume.
Our outreach schedule is at a bit of a lull with Rich and Marci (co-worker) stateside and our newest staff member whom I will blog about soon (he is so cool) is in Zimbabwe setting up a youth conference we will do in September. He is also proposing to his girl! (He is Zimbabwean as is she) If all goes well, Rich and I will be attending an Zimbabwean wedding in March.
I am supposed to be writing our Impact Africa staff manual but supposed to would be the key words. My writing parameters require blocks of uninterrupted, quiet time. And for all the moms reading you know that is quite a rarity when children are involved!
Things I have learned while my husband is away….
I can put a Bionicle together, I pray a lot more for Rich when he is away than when he is here (sad I know) and for myself..hee! How to get the electric garage door open when the power is out and that I am ready for bed by 8:00 p.m.
1 week down…
...that Rich is away; 3 more to go! Thanks for your prayers; I definitely felt them this week!
