Still Here And A Change Of Plans

So you may have noticed I haven't posted in a few days. It is not because there has been nothing going on my life, au contraire! However some of what has been going on is a severe headache, a little nausea and very interrupted sleep due to nightmares (from the three year old) and in a bad habit of waking up from being sick (the one year old). So I have just felt pretty awful when we haven't been busy. Yesterday I was tempted to blog but Dave wanted me to wash dishes instead, so he could dry them. Considering it took us an hour and a half to do dishes after church, before Dave's family came for supper, I completely understand why Dave wanted help.

Anyways, I am also not feeling like this is a good week to continue the "Day in the Life" series. I still want to do it because I want to remember what my days are like but I also want a week that is (more or less) normal and not us staying home a lot because Sam and/or Rachel is sick, like last week, or because I'm not feeling great. So look for that to come back in mid-November. Or maybe I'll try again on Friday, depending on how this week has been.

And now, I am off to bed because I am too exhausted to blog anymore or even do my reading for my Bible Study tomorrow morning, which I haven't been to in five weeks. I'm nervous about going back but also looking forward to it. And hopefully, if I can get a good night's sleep, then I will feel much better tomorrow.

Thanks for hanging in there and for being flexible blog readers! And just so this post isn't too boring here are a few random pictures from this past weekend.

 My favourite breakfast -- toasted cinnamon raisin bagel with butter, strawberry yogurt and a coffee/hot chocolate. Yum!
 Our two kids ready to go to the synagogue. Sorry that Sam is displaying awful manners and showing off his chewed challah.
 Sam and Marika baking a "Container Cake" for our church potluck on Saturday night.
 Dave and Donny cooking the main course for our Saturday night potluck. And we even brought enough home to feed to Dave's family on Sunday night.
 Dave reading a book to Sam and Rachel, who are still dressed in their church clothes. Sam had just spilled apple juice on his sweater. Awesome.
Rachel playing with a ball at Old Navy tonight while I fruitlessly tried on a million dresses. What good is having all your dresses on sale for $19 if I can't find one I like?!?!?!
Sam and Rachel playing on the car rides (We don't put money in, they enjoy being on them anyways) while I bought some exercise bras. NOW I don't have an excuse to not go to the gym! Ha!

And that is the end of my randomness for tonight. Good night!


  1. Awww, sorry the kids still aren't feeling at their best and your days aren't back to "normal" yet! I hate you couldn't find a dress you liked at ON...I often have the same difficulty on their in store sale racks because everything gets picked over fast. And the last time we were in the store, Evan had a fit because I wouldn't buy him a little $6.00 ball like the one Rachel is holding. Ha! It was not worth $6, and he has a million balls at home. I do not like for my kids to get everything they want and to think they are entitled to it. :-) Yep, I hate putting money in those little rides too, and my kids usually like just climbing on them and pretending to drive.

    1. Thanks! I'm feeling better just really really tired. Yawn.


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
