Crazy Day

Yesterday I woke up with about a million things to get done before the sun went down. And since I'd only gotten about 4 hours of sleep, I didn't know how I'd get it all done AND take a nap. I'm a little bit ashamed to admit that only yesterday evening as I lay down to sleep did I realize that the Lord blesses us even when we're too proud or selfish to ask for help.

SP started preschool yesterday for the first time. We kept her out when she was 3 because since we thought she'd be our only one, we just couldn't bear her growing up so fast. I regret it a little bit she's very ready now. And, she had a terrific time.
While she was gone, I had a therapy appointment down in the city and then had the daunting task of cleaning up after the hurricane that hit my house.

We've been thinking for sometime that putting our house on the market might be a good idea so that perhaps we can liquidate and buy some property while it's still a buyer's market. I had to get the whole house in shape for her to come over and I swear, it took me like 3 hours.

The realtor had good news for us and I'm not as worried about all of the stuff I thought needed to be done. Plus, it's possible we can list it in the range of what we were thinking. Phew! We've done a lot to this house and it worried me it would be all for nothing.

Following the realtor, I had my Mix n Fix meals to make. I made Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup and Bacon Bit Burgers with Smoked Ghouda. Both of these meals turned out awesome and of course, neither of them were my recipes. They were both actually from episodes of 30-Minute Meals. This morning I received a lot of terrific meals which have filled my freezer nicely with food that can be fixed at a moment's notice.

After the cooking, I headed to Costco to pick up the drinks for our church activity. I'm on the committee for these activities so I had to be there early to set-up and then hung out there until 10pm when the movie was over.

When I got home, I had to finish getting all of the meals finished because I met with the Mix n Fix group early this morning and had to have it all together. It took another hour and I was literally exhausted when I finally laid down.

Like I said, I never asked for extra blessings to get through the day without 1) taking a nap, and 2)getting a headache - but the Lord knew what I needed and was merciful enough to bestow them upon me anyway. I wasn't too tired to express my gratitude before I slept.

What? Just when I'm going to move closer to you, you are going to move away! :(
Good luck though.

I'm sorry I missed your call the other night. It sounds like you are terribly busy. Don't get so caught up in living that you don't enjoy your time being prego. Even during the exhausting days there are moments to be grateful :)
