A Few Words

Do you ever wonder when enough is enough? Jason has been gone this week to scout camp up in Yellowstone. I'm sure he's having a wonderful time in all of the rain. I miss him like crazy! I'm super tired, and sick, and the girls are sick. I just don't know why I just can't get myself to sit down, take a deep breath, and relax a little. Maybe I need some kind of relaxing drug. It will be the "Enough Already" pill. When I take it I won't be worried about the kids not getting a bath or staying in their pajamas, they're both sick after all. I won't worry about sweeping and mopping, laundry, dishes, dusting, or cleaning the bathroom...because it's not really that dirty and it will all be there tomorrow. I won't worry about the yard or taking the dog on a walk. I would just sit on the floor and play with my kids. I would watch "Pop" one more time, and happily I might add. I would eat soup. I would get the heating pad out and go to bed early. But, of course, a pill that does all of that would not be affordable. Dang!

Tomorrow Jason should be home. I'm very glad. Every morning Jordyn asks for Daddy and I have to keep telling her that Daddy slept in the mountains. She doesn't get it.

Jordyn is leaning how to say her prayers. This is how it goes.
Mommy: "Say Heavenly Father"
Jordyn: "Dadda"
Mommy: "Thank you for this..."
Jordyn: "Day"
Mommy: "Please bless...."
Jordyn: "Dadda, Mama, Me, Baby, Jesse, Julie, Heber, MiMi, LaLa"
Mommy: Please help us to..."
Jordyn: "sleep"
Mommy: "In the name of Jesus Christ..."
Jordyn: "AMEN"

She is just growing and changing so much. Sometimes I can hardly believe the things that come out of her little mouth.

Tessa is doing pretty good. We're still doing physical therapy. If she hasn't "significantly improved" at out next appointment in three weeks she has to have something called a "tot collar". I don't know what it is.

That's all. I'm going to bed now. Good night!

I know how you feel. Sometimes it's hard enough to get it all done with your husband there...even if you are still the one doing everything. It's just nice to know that someone else is there with you. I never do well when Seth's not around. Lucky that's only been once. Jordyn's prayers are about like Sam's. It's so fun to see them start getting it. Why is Tess in physical theropy. I wasn't aware of anything. I hope she does better with whatever it is.

You're right - the cleaning and stuff will still be there the next day. Take a good breather and get yourself feeling better :)

I read this after I talked to you on the phone. I wish I would have helped you out while Jason was gone. Did he go to scout camp to help his dad?

I hope you get feeling better. Maybe it would help if you came over here to visit--then you'd remember how clean your house is and you could let yourself relax.

I love hearing kids pray. It's so sweet. And I hope Tessa doesn't need the tot collar. Jayden didn't end up getting it despite his pt's threats. I actually have heard it's not that bad, but what mom wants to deal with one more thing? WIll Tessa need a helmet or is her head shape okay? I gave in and Aliya just got hers. Luckily, I did my own version of pt this time around, so I don't have to take her in. Well, good luck with everything.
