A busy day

Today has gotten off to a busy start and it only promises to get busier. I had the kids most of their Saturday chores today so that we can be ahead of the game.

Win has Reserves this weekend so he is gone.

William is headed to Youth Symphony where he plays each Saturday. He has been with this symphony since 7th grade. They practice each Saturday morning and have 2 concerts, one at Christmas and one on Mother's Day. After the Mother's Day concert they will be off for the Summer until the weekend after Labor Day. This is a great program for him. The Montgomery Symphony has lots of money and they are always willing to give it away. They allow the kids in this program to apply for scholarships each quarter and the kids can use that money for lessons, instrument rental or camps. It has helped us out so much with paying for his violin lessons. When William returns this afternoon he will finish up any chores he has and be free for the afternoon.

Davis has to finish his chores which include the yard.

I have Anna working now and then she has a softball game and I have to work her concession stand during the game.

We are going to grill out some chicken tonight for dinner and eat on the patio. It should be a nice way to end a busy day and to prepare us for worship tomorrow.

All three of our children, putting on their best face, for the camera. They are all growing so much and I am truly amazed at how time is flying by.

It is hard to tell in this picture, but Anna is holding a rabbit she has had since she was born. She doesn't play with it but on that day found an attachment to it. She does that sort of thing a lot.

Here is Win and I. We are getting ready to "mark" our 21st year of marriage. We have both changed so much in the last 21 years.

Life in my PJ's

That is what my life is like right now. In my PJ's all day, all night and since Monday. The reason you ask? Well, after putting it off and putting other things in front of my body talking to me I decided last week (actually at the urging of my friend Deana, I think requiring would be a better term, and I am so thankful for her) I went to the doctor and told him I needed a hysterectomy as soon as possible. And low and behold they could get me in the following Monday, March 31st. I had some serve prolapse, my bladder was being pressed on and causing me a bladder infection and I was miserable. My cough from my cold didn't help matters either.

So, now after a night at the hospital, I am home. All this was done while Win was out of town. That was OK. I had my mother, my sister and Deana. I couldn't have done it without them. They have taken me to the hospital, taken care of my children, house and animals and gotten me home from the hospital, gotten my children home from school, answered my phone, cleaned my kitchen, the list goes on and on. I am so thankful for each one of them.

Now, I am recovering. A lady at church told me to not take off my PJ's because then my family would think I am OK and can start doing for them again. So, I am in them until at least next week.

I have many post swarming around in my head and will get with it next week and let you know all that is on my mind. Until then I will be in my bed....
