Please feel free not to read this if you aren’t interested in the daily updates without Brian. This is my only outlet to the outside world! I had a good sleep last night. I still woke up every three hours, but I felt rested when I woke up at 6:30ish today. I was planning to go to church, but Malachi had green goopy boogies this morning and he’s still coughing. That basically means he’s outlawed from the nursery, so we didn’t go. Chi was very disappointed. Zeke is also congested now too. I’m calling the doctor tomorrow, it’s a terrible sound to hear him snort and sneeze from it. We had a birthday party to go to this afternoon for Tony–he’s 60. I totally thought we could be there on time, but it didn’t happen. Nursing and getting out the door with everyone ready sort of slowed us down. Elijah did nap at an odd time today, 11 to 1pm. He didn’t mind at all, he went right down. The party was at 1:30, we got there a little before 2. It was at a restaurant, Italian, really yummy! There were like 30 or so people there. I thought my boys did well, but I got two bad comments. Malachi was called a “little hellian” and they were called “rambunctious”. They are little boys, almost 2 and 3 years old, they can’t sit in a chair for an hour and a half! I was very frustrated and then felt angry. I really wanted to say something sarcastic back, but I’ve never been able to do that. So I went home fuming and also railing in my mind against my family. I’ll spare you those thoughts. I tried to plan a shopping trip to Kohl’s with my mom(I have another gift card to spend) for tomorrow, but she can’t go now. Tuesday I asked her to help me take the boys to the doctor—Chi has his 3 year check up. But she isn’t able to go with me, she has jury duty. Later this summer Brian will be gone two weeks. One for youth conference, he’s driving our church’s bus and then to adult conference. I’m really doubting we made the best decision about that—am I stupid or what?
I’m off to work on making birth announcements.
Four down, three to go.
