I’m finally better. Well mostly better. Better enough to make meals and start cleaning up Christmas. Today the I spend five hours cleaning out the girls’ room. Five hours.
Who invented the Rainbow Loom?!?!?!?!?!?!? 🙂
My sister is in town and that’s always fun and a welcome distraction. The kids opened up their Christmas gifts from my sister last night and Cora got a little pair of hot pink slipper boots. She loves them. I mean loves them. They are furry and glittery and pink. Which is everything Cora likes.
She wants to wear them to church and even went to bed wearing them.
We also got signed up for grocery delivery. I’ve always thought it sounded like a cool idea, but I wasn’t sure about it. I think my sickness was too much for the Commander so he ordered groceries for us. I’ll let you know what I think of it soon since I didn’t see the price tag!
Our eleven year old is really missing dad. His prayer at dinner was to keep dad safe and that Christmas just wasn’t the same without him.
I’m trying to figure out how to help him get through this, but I don’t have many ideas. He got to talk to his dad for a long time tonight, which helped. I think they talked for two hours, maybe longer. I have no idea what they talked about but I know he was in a much better mood when he got off the phone.
I got an email today from a reader encouraging me to hang in there. She reminded me not to lose my sense of humor. Lately I’ve misplaced it. I plan on getting it back today. Thank you!
My husband has been deployed to the Middle East for 274 days. These are my real thoughts expressing my heart during his absence. I appreciate your prayers and kind words as we cope, adapt, and carry on without him until August 2014. To read from the beginning, click here.
