the school year is about to begin. We did our picture/packet pick up day yesterday with Landon (who claimed I talked to much while we were there, but it was great to see so many people that I don't get to see all the time or only see on facebook) and Bailey's open house at New Gronigan as well, where I guess I apparently talked quite a bit as well, but it was wonderful to finally meet Lindy there, and see many many other familiar faces as well! I really am ready for the kids to go back to school. Mostly right now because I feel bad for them. My energy level is very very low right now, which means we do a lot of sitting around, inside the house, being bored. It will be good for them to get back out with thier friends and moving around, doing things.
Elliot get's to start school the following week, which will mean lot's of running around, but he is SOOo ready. Although, I'm not convinced he is ready for school as much as going to school WITH BRECKEN. Either way, it will be good for him!
I also am ready to start BSF. So ready to get back into some regularity and to study Isaiah. I've found so many meaningful verses in that book just from the bible studies I've done this summer.
For the most part I've been sleeping great, but I seem to wake up around 5:30 or 6 every morning. I'm wide awake and I know that it's God's way of getting me to do some extra praying and studying. I actually end up enjoying this time, it's quiet and I'm able to go through my prayer list and pray specifically for everyone and everything I can think of. This morning though, I was resistent. It was gray outside and surely didn't feel like morning. But then I got a bloody nose, so I had to get up. That took a little while to stop, and I was just going to go back to bed, I was tired. I walked back to my bed only to see my insulin pump light on, telling me that I was out of insulin. So I had to refill that as well. God was NOT going to let me settle back in to a good sleep until I spent some time talking with him. He's a persistent guy like that!
My energy level is getting lower and lower every day. A simple trip to get school supplies is exhausting to me. I tried taking some medications to help it, but I don't like the way they make me feel either. Just something I have to deal with for a few more days I suppose. My stomach has also been a bit upset so I'm not eating much, not that I can't stand to lose a few pounds, but this may not be the best time to do it either.
A BIG thank you to everyone that has offered to help lately, and those that have helped. Even the little things get noticed and I appreciate it all so much. Seriously, I am so grateful to have such amazing people in my life! Thank you!
Enjoy your last summer weekend! We have a driveway full of rocks that need to be spread out, if you get bored I'm sure Matt wouldn't turn down any help! ;)
