Be Careful What You Wish For...

So yesterday I was bellyaching a bit at the failed efforts I had in organizing our house.

Sometime in the middle of the night, I hear the all too familiar, "Dad...I just threw up." Not that I am Dad, but since I am in the same room, same bed, I hear it too. (This should be a time I say "thank you" that this particular child, being our oldest son, ALWAYS goes to Dad's side first!) Thankfully (again) my husband usually does the sick clean ups because otherwise, there might be another sick episode (being me). I can handle blood. I can handle loose teeth. Vomit? Not so much.

So this morning comes around, and we start doing the guessing game...what do we do? He seems fine. He only threw up once. It was probably something he ate. What do we do? In the end, Mark took the other three on to church, and I stayed home with the patient who seemed to be feeling just fine. We decided not to risk it just out of consideration for those in his class and his teachers.

So I got some time this morning to organize. A few hours doesn't go too far (especially when you have to exercise in there too). But I got a lot of the girls' room done. It still needs some more work but it is a bit more organized (other than the pile where I threw stuff that was nowhere near where it needed to be).

I also got a nap today. Woohoo!

Random thoughts:
Child 4 still says "probably" probably all day long. "I probably done with my nap, Mommy..." or "I probably took her cars away; I probably won't do it again." I don't remember any of my others going through this stage. He is unique, I suppose!

Please continue to pray for Mark's mom. She will find out test results on the tumor on her pituitary gland tomorrow. Pray for the doctor's wisdom when reading the tests.

I have exercised five days in a row. I think that may be a record for me. :) I am trying not to get my hopes up that I might actually lose weight, but I am hopeful. The other day we were watching something on t.v. I don't remember what it was but there was a commercial for weight loss or a diet. Hunter quickly said, "Mom, you need to do that so you can lose weight for Biggest Loser!" So I am getting encouragement (I think :) at home.

Please pray for my friend Jill. Her husband Jeremy has had treatments for colon cancer through the second half of last year. This week he will have tests done to determine if the treatment worked and he is cancer free.

I am about ready for spring time. I am ready to get back to some hiking on the weekends!

I better go. I have more to say but as usual not enough time to say it. :)

  1. Glad you got a little organizing done Reba. I know how hard it is when you feel like it is looming over your head day in and day out. Just remember it will get done, all in due time.
    Thank you for all the prayers and support, you are a dear friend to me.
