up to date…

October 22, 2009

so here’s what is going on with all of the little situations I write about and then don’t ever really tell you what has become of them.

adoption … nothing ever  happened.  I don’t know.  it just came and went and is over I guess.  we contacted out as far as we could.  the agency, the friend of a friend… and for whatever reason it ended as quickly as it came up.  I am perfectly  fine with that.  really.  it seems to have been a bit of a cathartic (meaning- to purge.  which I did.) experience.  my immediate reaction was as overwhelming as when we left the hospital empty-handed.  I just bawled… and then… everything was okay.  maybe I just needed to see that adoption is an option and maybe… maybe…  someday we will adopt.

potty … cole has been accident free for over a week straight!  amazing.  the most amazing thing is that he was clean and dry the whole time we were gone!  he went on the potty with all of his helpers and even at someone elses house!  good job cole.

biting …  this is always ongoing.  it has been for years.  I don’t know why, but getting ready in the morning is very hard for him, which in turn, makes it hard for me.  some days are better and some are worse.  there really is no way to tell which day I’ll get until we are right in the thick of it.  I haven’t choked him yet… or dropped him.

punkin … gabrielle ended up having mono and another viral infection called CMV which is like mono.  so that is probably why she was soo tired and had the fever for soo long.  she is on the mend.  she gets worn out pretty easily and currently has contracted some other bug that is making her cough and be congested.

bsf … I went back.  I am now in a different group with my leader from last year.  this seems to  have made it easier.  the other women in the group are a little older, and no one is pregnant or nursing.  good.  having someone know my history without having to talk about it is somehow nice.  if I cry or ramble or glaze over, I don’t have to explain.  she knows.  she stumbles over saying ‘luke’ around me too (which is hard to avoid in a bible study)and that is somehow comforting as well.

dawson john …  not that there was anything going on, and there still isn’t.  he’s like brian.  my steady.  my little lover.  he’s growing like crazy in so many ways.  he saved up some money to buy a new bible (one like the big boys at church have) and he has taken it upon himself to have a little quiet time everyday!  wow!  I’m impressed… with God.  that he would stir a little heart to long for more.  it brings me great joy.

pictures … the weekend away was great.  I learned a great deal and have been thinking and figuring how I can get this thing started.  why wouldn’t I do something that I am good at, something I love to do and  get paid for it?!?!  it is still in the process though.

tripping … ummm… yeah… I’m going to have to get back to you on that one.  it is still a day-to-day thing.  a year ago today, everything was still fine.  those days are very closely numbered now.  very.

    Thanks for the update. Gabrielle looked very tired on Sunday (mostly around the eyes) this might explain why….She is trying so hard to work on memorizing our SS verses but usually only quotes what she hears the other kids say. Sometimes mispronouncing the words (I didn’t laugh but was chuckling inside) Please do not take this wrong. My kids are so much bigger now and I miss this part alot!! I love to remember the funny things they would say. So, if she asks about working on the verses they are…Isaiah 46:9b I am God and there is no other. I am God and there is none like Me.

    Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

    Psalms 16:11a You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in Your presence.

    Romans 1:21a For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him.

    Romans 6:23a The wages of sin is death.

    This coming weeks Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
    and Romans 5:19a Through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners.

    I should head to bed now…I have to be “energetic for soccer” for tomorrow.
