Thanks to Jen at Conversiondiary.com for hosting. Let's get right to it...
Wanted to make it to the beach this week to visit with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law and their kids. It's been such beautiful weather this week here in NH. It never happened though. It would have been Wednesday or Thursday that I took the drive out since I work Monday, Tuesday and Friday. But it was a good thing I didn't on Wednesday because I ended up feeling horrible right after the girls' bed time. Nauseous and dizzy. Would not have been a good drive home. I think that I may not have had enough water that day. Maybe it wasn't enough carbs. Anyway, Thursday I visited with my mother-in-law who broke her foot the first day of summer watching our girls. I figured she would have normally spent some time at the beach so we should go spend some time visiting with her. It was a really nice visit, although the girls wanted to do nothing but climb on mama. I wonder if it's the cast that is having Alicia be so standoffish with her Nana. Alicia did do some drawing on her cast which she hasn't until now. Nana's cast should come off in two weeks! Hopefully! I STILL feel guilty.
There was lots going on this week that I needed to get done. I left my post-it "to do" list behind at my mom's house on Tuesday, so I rewrote the list in a notebook. After taking a look at said list today, I only ended up accomplishing three things on my "to do" list out of a possible 14. The list just keeps getting longer and longer. Posting on my blog was on the list, but it will have to wait until early next week. I started it, but never got back to it. "Holy Roller" post will be coming next week. I think... tonight I'm off to finish thank you letters for my daughter's birthday presents along with the pictures I insert from her annual photo shoot!
Surgery for my cousin's endometriosis was just Wednesday. The surgery went well and she seems to be feeling alright. I'm really hoping it helps her and her husband on their journey to having children. She started learning about the Creighton method recently and is seeing the Na Pro doctor that I saw when we had trouble conceiving baby #2. She has a blog about her experiences with IVF and her more recent journey to learn Creighton. (There's also a link to her blog Eat.Scream.Cry on my "Bloggers" tab.) Sending lots of love and prayers for a speedy recovery and to achieving the family of their dreams. They will be great parents when it happens for them. If you could add it to your intentions, please pray for them as they continue their struggle with infertility which will hopefully turn around very soon.
"Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car." G.K. Chesterton. I LOVE this quote. Don't just stand there in church! (OK, but you still should GO to church!) Don't be afraid to live it people! Get out there and be an example of Christ for others!
Confession time: I'm not doing so great with saying the rosary daily. Actually, I haven't even said it once since posting about praying the rosary. Best of intentions not put into practice. Poop! (my favorite curse word since becoming a mom!) Maybe soon?! Why do I struggle with spending time in prayer? This bothers me; ok bothers isn't the right word. This makes me sad. I MUST CARVE OUT MORE TIME FOR PRAYER!!!
