The Blah's

I spent my morning at the doctor’s office with Ta and T.G. I missed Ta’s 2 year visit originally scheduled in March (due to another computer problem!) so it was a routine appointment. Except that anyone with kids knows there is no such thing as “routine”. Turns out he has a sinus infection and while we were there, the doctor went ahead and looked at the baby to save me from having to come back. T.G. has a double ear infection. I went in thinking the visit was free (insurance covers well visits 100%) and ended up spending $81 due to the various medications both kids were prescribed! Plus, I still feel yucky. I actually feel a little better; I just don’t have much of a voice. My kids are happy, and probably TJ too, but I hate it because I have to repeat myself more than I normally do!

TJ felt sorry for me since I wasn’t feeling well and didn’t go to Charlotte after work. He mowed the front lawn and I hung outside with the kids and watched. With him home to help, we were able to have a relatively stress-free evening. Plus, once the boys went to bed, he was able to fix the computer. Turns out our hard drive went bad. Thankfully he was able to recover ALL of the data off of it and transfer it to a new hard drive. I have all of my school papers, presentations, etc. stored on the computer. He does a complete back-up of everything once per week, but it’s still scary to think I could have lost years’ worth of documents, pictures, etc. We literally do EVERYTHING on this computer, including our finances. We’d be in big trouble if he wasn’t a “computer genius” as he puts it!

Well, it’s off to finish some more scrapbook pages. Another mom asked me to do hers today when I dropped Th off at school. At this point I don’t mind because I have everything out and accessible. I do need to get on the ball though and figure out what I’m going to do for Ta’s teachers. Actually, I know what I want to do; I just need to find time. Maybe this weekend, although I doubt it. My sister is visiting, and we are attending a Mother/Daughter banquet, along with a couple of friends of mine.

I am really looking forward to the dinner. I gave the invitations to each person for their own individual reasons, but all of us going need a night out with just the girls! Nobody knows anyone else that I invited but all have similar personalities. I am really excited to see what the Lord will do in each of their lives because of the fellowship time the banquet is providing. If you wouldn’t mind, pray that the Lord would soften and prepare each woman’s heart that is attending. Without going into all the details, one is hurting and all are searching for a place to belong. I pray this banquet will provide the answers each is seeking. . .
